The Timos Prizes are instituted by the will of Amali Timos (1833-1896), by the Timos Foundation based in Orioni, to people (and to organizations in the case of the Timos Peace Prize) who have done outstanding research, invented groundbreaking techniques or equipment, or made outstanding contributions to society. The Timos Prizes, which are generally awarded annually in the categories listed below, are widely regarded as a respectable commendation on Eurth today.

Timos' Will

The prizes were instituted by the final will of Amali Timos, an Orinese geologist, industrialist, and the exploiter of uranium. Though her work had not directly involved the creation of nuclear weapons, Timos became increasingly uneasy with the military usage of her product. It is said that this was motivated in part by her reading of a premature obituary of herself, published in error by a foreign newspaper who mistook Amali for her sister Ariana when Ariana died, and which condemned Amali as a "proponent of death." So in her will, Amali left 90% of her worth to the establishment of these prizes for "the person of persons who, during the previous year, have bestowed the greatest gift of progress upon all Eumanity."
