Personal History:

            Timothy’s father struggled growing up watching his father flounder in a job on Earth that left the family torn and moved them about from place to place almost yearly.  When Tony came of age, he went to a prep school for the Academy and while there met Mary Woods, who would marry just after graduating from the Academy.  Anthony Watson made a name for himself among the realm of the design and development once he finally got stationed aboard UPFY on Mars, and expected that the strings he could pull would help his son to become a fine officer too.  For his part, Timothy, or “Tinker” as his friends often called him as he spent hours after school and on weekends over at the Winter Harbor ship salvage, taking apart and rebuilding boilers and other assorted junked maritime and space vessels.  By the time he’d finished high school, his parents had officially divorced and his mother was teaching at the local Academy Prep school in Ellsworth.  Tinker spent summers in high school with his father on Mars, but longed to come home and spend time taking things apart rather than looking over plans and blueprints with his father.  Unsure how to tell his father that he did not want to become an officer or a designer right away, Tinker struggled through until he was 19 and done with school, a year late due to an expulsion for fighting with a classmate (to this day Tinker insists the classmate started the fight and he was merely defending himself).  Once he’d graduated, Tinker applied at the local Engineering and Mechanic School rather than to the University of Maine.  Anthony was outraged, all his plans for his son to surpass his own accomplishments were ruined, and to this day Tinker’s relationship with his father is strained and cold at best.
