Tim Lockwood is Flint Lockwood's father and the owner of a sardine store in Swallow Falls.
Tim Lockwood is rather blunt, down-to-earth, solemn, a bit pessimistic and unsure, but is still caring and well-meaning. As shown almost throughout the film that he didn't support his son, Flint Lockwood's inventions, unlike his wife. He loves his son deeply but was not as encouraging as his wife was about his inventing dream so he started making him work at his Tackle shop because his inventing didn't seem to work. He also got easily annoyed by his son's wacky, hyperactive tendencies and had a phobia for technology (which is why he didn't support Flint being an inventor). His generally emotionless nature is most likely because of his wife's death. However, near the end, he becomes more supportive and courageous, he tries to help Flint save the day, despite his fear of technology and encourages him to not give up. After this, he eventually grows close to his son after finally opening up to him about his emotions. It is fair to say he will become less serious and more supportive to Flint in the sequel. Tim also has a strong passion for sardines.
