Keith Timmons arrives in Santa Barbara to succeed to the post of district attorney left vacant. Very quickly, he shows a certain resentment towards the Capwells, who he will not cease to harass during the years that he will spend at this place. The origin of this almost hate is the fact that he takes Cruz Castillo for responsible of the death of his sister, Katie, ten years ago. Katie was then in love with Cruz, but he preferred Victoria Lane than her. Mad of jealousy, Katie then threw herself in the ocean the day she saw them embraced on the beach.

Cheating character, with a very particular humour, Keith knows his first love-story in Santa Barbara with Santana Andrade. He tries at the beginning to abuse her whereas she is under the influence of the drugs that Gina DeMott makes her take without her knowledge... An adventure which does not last (Santana is at the time married with Cruz), but which enables him to meet Gina who will become the love of his life.

Without really daring to acknowledge their reciprocal love at the beginning, the couple will be able to be linked in the worst bad turns against the Capwells, Keith taking care for his part of the charges of murder : he arrests Cruz for the murder of Elena Nikolas whereas he knows his innocence, he makes a pleasure to indicate C.C. Capwell as the culprit of the murder of Hal Clark, throws a warrant to Mason for the murder of Mark McCormick even without any beginning of proof... Nothing stops him, not even Julia Wainwright, during a time his assistant, who will change of side without waiting more to become a lawyer.

In 1988, he finally opens his heart to Gina, fearing to lose her when she begins a love-affair with Dr. Scott Clark who looks after her temporary blindness due to an accident. Keith quickly moves in at Gina’s, in spite of the presence of Brandon, Gina’s adoptive son, that Keith has some pain to support... and ends up marrying her. But being privy to an affair of corruption at the district attorney office, Keith sees himself constrained to leave the town, leaving without news the poor Gina.

He reappears two years and a divorce later, pursued by a dangerous gangster in DisneyWorld park, Florida. This is where Gina and Brandon find his trace. Thanks to several embezzlements, Keith gets back very fast his work as district attorney and has in charge the investigation on Robert Barr's murder, investigation which is going to allow him to pursue his vengeance against the Capwells. To make condemn Eden or Kelly (because he is not sure of the exact identity of the culprit, but it has no importance in his eyes), he signs a contract with Flame Beaufort. He offers her immunity if she testifies against the Capwell sisters. He is quickly obliged to admit Kelly and Eden's innocence because Flame is the only culprit. At the same time, Keith has only one single desire : to reconstruct his life with Gina. But his evil deeds have a fatal influence on young Brandon, what urges Gina to finally break with him. While his little schemes to obtain the work of district attorney are brought to light, Keith leaves town again, conscious that he does not have a place anymore either in Gina's life, or at the district attorney's office, and this time definitively...
