Timon shared a close-knitted bond with his brother and did a lot of things together. At some point when they were younger, he made a necklace for Abreas such that he would never be alone while out hunting or fighting. At one point, they befriended Astra and Deianeira, often participating in sparring session with one another.
Later in their adult years, Deianeira became one of the Champions of Boeotia, and allied with Athens' Delian League like the rest of the champions. As Abreas spoke against the alliance and accused the champions of betraying Boeotia, he was killed by Deianeira and Astra as they lured him to their old sparring grounds. Abreas' necklace was subsequently taken by Deianeira, who gifted it to Astra.
After sometime, Timon found Abreas' body with the necklace he had given to him missing. He subsequently held a funeral in Orchomenos for his deceased brother, playing his lyre near the port. Timon later met the Spartan misthios Kassandra who heard Timon playing the lyre. After telling her of his the past he shared with Deianeira, Kassandra agreed help him hunt down Astra to avenge Abreas' death, and retrieve the necklace. Before Kassandra departed, Timon told her what he knew about Deianeira, and the cave she frequented.
