Javier Timetao Costala, was born in Oporto, Portugal, Earth. He is the third child in a family of seven children. His father is a starship mechanic at the civilian port in Lisbon. His mother is a teacher at the Academy of Art in Oporto. Javier’s childhood was happy even though he was over-shadowed by the accomplishments of his older siblings. Satisfied with letting his older brother and sister make the family proud, Javier was a loner who spent much of his time reading, playing the piano and taking classes at the Casa da Musica in Oporto. He is quiet, thoughtful, loves to read and often can be found singing to himself softly while working on a task.

Upon graduating he began to work for the star-port in Lisbon as an electrical technician. While working there Javi met and began a relationship with Caterina Encarnacion. The two would have a child together but complications in their relationship forced them apart. After Caterina left him for parts unknown, Javier ended up joining the SFMC and he sent his daughter, Lia, to live with his parents in Oporto.
