Torchwood: outside the government, beyond the United Nations. Tracking down alien life on Earth, arming the human race against the future. The twenty-first century is when everything changes, and I hope you are ready.
The Torchwood Institute is a secret organization from Brittan. Established by Queen Victoria in 1879, its prime purpose is to defend Brittan against extraterrestrial threats, namely, the threats associated with visits from The Doctor.
The Torchwood Institute began, however, to use their findings to restore the British Empire to its former glory. To those ends, the organization acquires and reverse engineers alien technology by any means deemed necessary.
Established in 1882 the fourth branch of Torchwood was a covert British organization, in the United States, it was initially given the purpose of securing alien technology in the western hemisphere to 1) help defend the British Empire and 2) help re-secure the colonies for the British Empire.
Torchwood 4 lost all contact with the other branches around 1901 when the chapter moved from Virginia to Indiana. The move was because a time space disturbance was discovered in Indianapolis. An underground base was built around this disturbance to house the secret organization’s new headquarters. The construction went unnoticed due to being covered up as the construction of a Soldiers and Sailors’ monument. they reestablished contact around the year 2000.
In late 2012 the former Torchwood IV group mysteriously disappeared. Who will replace them as the guardians of the Indianapolis rift?
