Truth!? if you have to ask "WHO" he is then this message is NOT for you


but for those interested... here we go

Captain Jack Harkness is a fictional character played by John Barrowman in Doctor Who and its spin-off series, Torchwood. He first appeared in the 2005 Doctor Who episode "The Empty Child" and reappeared in the remaining episodes of the 2005 series as a companion of the ninth incarnation of the series' protagonist the Doctor. Jack became the central character in the adult-themed Torchwood, and returned in the 2007 series of Doctor Who, reuniting with the tenth incarnation of the Doctor, and again for the 2008 series and a 2010 special.

In the programme's narrative, Jack begins as a time traveller and former con man from the 51st century. In contrast to the Doctor, Jack is a man of action, more willing to apply a hands-on solution to a problem. As a consequence of his death and resurrection in the 2005 series finale of Doctor Who, the character becomes immortal. On Earth, Jack becomes a member of Torchwood, a British organisation dedicated to combating alien threats, becoming its leader over a century later. An ambiguous backstory is gradually revealed in the course of both series, adding another layer of complexity to the character.

Jack is the first openly non-heterosexual character in the history of televised Doctor Who. The popularity of the character amongst multiple audiences directly influenced the development of the spin-off series Torchwood. The character became a figure of the British public consciousness, rapidly gaining fame for portrayer John Barrowman. As an ongoing depiction of bisexuality in mainstream British television, the character became a role model for young gay and bisexual people in the UK. Jack is featured in various Doctor Who and Torchwood books, as well as having action figures created in his likeness.


anyways there is a reason I'm asking about this... and if your still with me after this then here it is...
There is a "Who" based story going on in game and we would love more players involved in the fun... and namely the good captain.. some of you might have seen a version on the server already and that WAS me and I'm currently involved in playing another character in the who Universe and do not want to be greedy....sooo anyone wanting in on the action please feel free to make a reasonable facsimile of Jack or any other Who based character, other then the ones listed below... feel free to drop me a line if you need any help in designing or attaining gear for these characters

The 11th Doctor Aka Matt Smith
The Master Aka ?? no idea
Dr. River Song

Companions Taken:
