In Utopian Musings, Tim Veneer is a prickly character who is obsessed with achieving his childhood dream of becoming a professional athlete and refuses to accept the fact that he lacks the ability, skills and talent to do so. Tim views himself as the victim of bad luck and conspiracy, in this and in other areas of his life.

As a bartender in Marbin City, Tim’s lifestyle allows him to indulge in his narcissistic tendencies and he is prone to lash out at those who would challenge how he presents himself or try to hold him accountable for his actions.
