Captain Jack Harkness

Species: Human Variant
Role: Head of Torchwood 3

Highlights: Chiselled and ripped no person can help but fall for Cpt Jack's charms. 1000 years of experience.
Burden: Faced with a harrowing childhood, the loss of his brother and facing eternal life.
Sexual Orientation: Bi-sexual

The details of Jack's past are hazy at best. He comes from somewhere in the Earth's far different future. Harkness lost his brother to an unknown alien hoard, and is plagued by is less than perfect relationship with his father. For reasons which are yet to be divulged, Harkness cannot die or be killed. Over the years he has developed a keen intuition as well as a stomach you could do your washing on.

Jack in that she is seemingly irresistible to others.

GemLil's rating:
Owen Harper

Burden: Existing as a reanimated corpse, Owen can no longer enjoy any of the pleasures of the flesh.

Bio: Owen, a brilliant surgeon, is a self confessed cold fish. His life's pursuits are mostly shallow, although he has found himself engaged in a few moments of depth. *Spoiler ahead* Owen, in a twist of irony was killed and reanimated, now as a corpse he no-longer has senses, and finally realises what he missed in life.

Burden: Hopelessly lonely, unrequited love of Owen.
Sexual Orientation: Straight

Bio: Computer genius Toshiko is in charge of all the technology within Torchwood 3. She is a loner, who has held a long standing unrequited love for Owen Harper. Tosh is very much overlooked within the Torchwood team, she takes a back seat and is somewhat resentful of the attentions given to Gwen.

Highlight: Kicking it with the Doctor, saving the Earth.
Burden: Unrequited love for the Doctor.

GemLil's rating:
Captain John Hart

Species: Human Variant
Role: Rogue/ Time Agent

Highlight: Travelling through time having sex with Captain Jack
Burden: Damaged soul, unrequited love.
Sexual Orientation: Everything.

Bio: Time Agent and general sex hound, Cpt Hart breezes in and out of various time periods, in search of power and pleasure. Him and Jack spent a good deal of time stuck in a time flux, in this time they got together and wore great jackets. It is very unclear as to where his allegiances lie, although he attempted to kill the entire Torchwood team, he seems to show a degree of repentance for his actions, and a genuine care/ love for Cpt. Jack.

Bio: Rhys is not a member of Torchwood, but finds him self occasionally wrapped up in extra terrestrial activity, because of wife Gwen. Due to his allegiance with Gwen, Torchwood decide not to wipe his memory. Rhys has found himself a key part of a few Torchwood missions and has made a fair input in protecting the earth.
