Tim Robicheaux (a.k.a. Yo Ling) is a character from the soap opera Days of Our Lives, portrayed by Tobin Bell in 2016.


Tim is the biological father of John Black, who was presumed dead in the Korean War. In March 2016, a captured John came face to face with his father for the first time in his life. John couldn't believe that Tim was alive, and Tim explained that he faked his death. Taking the name Yo Ling, Tim formed a organization of assassins called the Phantom Alliance. Tim planned for John to become a part of it, but learned he had been adopted by the Alamain family.

Tim waited till John was old enough, and then bought him from the Alamains. John was trained at Winterthorne academy, and was said to be one of the best assassins. Tim admitted he thought about revealing himself to John, but decided it was better if John didn't know who he was. John was set to command his own team when Ilya Petrov betrayed Tim and handed John over to Stefano DiMera.

Tim claimed that he was dying from the infectious bacterial disease that Caroline Brady has. John realized Tim was responsible for Bo Brady being held captive and tortured. Tim waved off his role In Bo's death as unfortunate collateral damage, and that he needed John's blood to survive. Tim warned John the procedure would most likely kill him, but he could take solace in the fact that his blood would be used for a higher purpose. Tim also had his grandson Paul Narita kidnapped. Tim planned to brainwash Paul into becoming an assassin, so he could carry on for Tim.

Tim started the brainwashing process, but John broke free and tried to escape with Paul. They were caught by Tim and his men, but then rescued when Rafe Hernandez, Marlena Evans, and Steve Johnson burst into the room. Tim and his men were apprehended, so Tim committed suicide by biting into a poisoned capsule.
