Biography[edit | edit source]

Timothy Eliot Stokes was a scholar that lived in the town of Collinsport, Maine in the late 1960s. A man of many talents, Stokes specialized in matters concerning the occult, and harbored a wealth of knowledge pertaining to ghosts, exorcism, séances and the Eastern meditative practice of divination known as I-Ching.

Initially, Professor Stokes represented a threat to the existence of Barnabas Collins. At one point, he even began to suspect that Barnabas was a vampire that had been terrorizing the Collins family estate Collinwood for several months. Thanks to the efforts of Doctor Julia Hoffman and the late Doctor Eric Lang however, Barnabas was cured and Stokes never discovered the truth. In time, Stokes actually became Barnabas and Julia's strongest ally – often aiding them against the villainous efforts of adversaries such as Angelique Collins, and the ghost of Quentin Collins.

Stokes first learned about Quentin Collins in the winter of 1968. Collinwood matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard called upon Professor Stokes when she suspected that a malevolent spirit had begun haunting Collinwood. After observing a Tarot card left behind by the spirit, Stokes called in a colleague named Janet Findley to help out. Findley was an experienced medium, and though she successfully made contact with the angry spirit of 19th century family member Quentin Collins, it came at the cost of her own life. [2]

It was eventually decided that they only way to stop the threat of Quentin Collins was to attack the problme not in the present, but in the past. It was Stokes who instructed Barnabas in the use of I-Ching, a process that sent Barnabas' astral spirit backwards through time to the year 1897. [3]

Stokes came to Barnabas' aid again when the former vampire found himself trapped in the year 1840 along with Julia. Timothy helped them expose the malevolent actions of the opportunistic Gerard Stiles and helped them use the Stairway Through Time to get them back home.
