- "Don't worry, mom, you and Newt can count on me to look out for you."
- ―Timmy (from Aliens: Newt's Tale)
Tim was the only person who called Newt by her real name, Rebecca. When his parents Russ and Anne were dispatched to investigate the Derelict on LV-426, Timmy and Newt went along in their Daihotai Tractor, where they stayed while their parents entered the ship to investigate. When Russ was taken back to Hadley's Hope with a Facehugger attached to him, Timmy's friend Aaron led the Jorden siblings through the ventilation ducts to an opening overlooking the medical facility where Russ had been quarantined. From here they witness Russ' death as the Chestburster inside him hatched.
As the Xenomorph infestation began to overrun the colony, several of the survivors retreated to the storage areas beneath the operations building, including Anne, Timmy and Newt. Despite attempts to fortify the room, the Xenomorphs eventually burst in and Anne was killed trying to hold them off so that her children could escape through the vents. Seeing his mother die, Timmy took up the handgun she had been carrying and used it to kill the Warrior responsible, but was himself killed when the creature's acid blood spilled onto his face.
Personality and TraitsEdit
As Newt's older brother, Timmy often took on a protective role in their relationship. Following the death of his father, Timmy also assumed this role in his family as a whole, at least in his own mind, pledging to keep his mother safe. He showed great bravery when he tried to avenge his mother and defend his sister from the Xenomorphs, although this act ultimately cost him his life.
- Chirstopher Henn, who played Timmy Jorden, is the real-life older brother of actress Carrie Henn, who played Newt.
- Timmy Jorden and the rest of his family (excluding Newt) were cut from the theatrical release of Aliens when the studio complained that the film was too long. The scenes featuring him were later reinstated for the extended Special Edition.
