April 2008

Thanks to Tavey of Torchwood Ten for providing the Monthly with a peek at the current mission.

The Eye in the Sky by Tavey
An artifact was stolen from Torchwood One during the upheaval of Canary Wharf, one that is immensely dangerous. The item is one part of four, deliberately separated years before. Derowen MacFie, realising the danger, called in help. John Smith, (Played by Jake Sjet), from the ‘lost’ Torchwood Four arrived, bringing with him an agenda all his own.

A foray into Torchwood Tower has proven to be a disaster. At the current point in the tale, they have been attacked by two different foes, each with an entirely objective. One group, strange controlled sand and earth creatures are after an item that the group brought with them; the other, an immense Earth Golem who seems to be an old Torchwood Ten member, after MacFie. Some of the team are badly hurt. One, Rick Stowell, the research guru of Ten, was revealed to be some kind of artificial creature that dissolved into sand before their eyes. Derowen MacFie, clasped in the arms of the golem, and in a desperate attempt to destroy it, fell four stories into the lobby floor.

Torchwood Ten is in retreat, hoping that they can get back to the Hub before too much more damage is done to London City and before Derowen dies from her injuries.

Flight Lieutenant Black Scar
Black Scar had a rough childhood after his Mother died, and his Father could never love him, as he blamed him for his wife’s death. Black’s Father gave him a nasty scar down his left cheek after a heated argument when Black was five. He then ran away and was taken in by an underworld street thug gang called the Hawkbats. He had to leave Coruscant after doing an assassination job; having been spotted.

He found himself then as a smuggler. After being captured by Jabba the Hutt, after a failing to swindle him out of a deal, Black found his life in Jabba’s hands. So he became a successful bounty hunter for Jabba.
He finally earned his freedom, only to lose everything he’d worked for after taking on a bounty for Nerida. They found themselves in an unlikely partnership to save their lives, as they escaped from a top secret Imperial base. Stuck with each other, Black follows Nerida to her Rebel contact. They were accepted, and as Black had preformed a service to the Rebels during his smuggling career was given the rank off Flight Lieutenant, and shipped to the Dragon Squadron.
