Timothy Squid is a character role-played by Burn.
Timothy helps to recruit individuals to partake in the Squid Games. He can often be seen wearing a black suit and carrying a grey suitcase with two armed bodyguards wearing all pink and full face mask with geometric shape on it .
His main task is to evaluate potential participant and deliver their invitation card. He works under the commands of The Front Man.
During the game, he can be seen wearing the same attire as the participants with number "000". He delivered game instructions and ensure player well-being in the game, sometimes engaging conversation with them.
Timothy would contact each potential participant and use manipulative tactic such as revealing very sensitive information including their legal and illegal assets and amount of money they have in their pocket and in their bank account and stressing on their current debts, leaving them no choice but to meet him so he can offer them an invitation to the game face to face. He apparently knows their current whereabouts, their activities, and their GPS ping number as he claimed he has many "eyes" watching on them and threaten the potential participants with the information if they decide to go against him. During the meet up with the participants, he offered them to play a mini-game with him to evaluate them whether they're worthy to join the main game. If he satisfied with their performance, he would hand out a brown card to them, an invitation to the join the squid game.
