Major Jackson "Jack" Reynolds
Weapons specialist / Police Liason / Security Officer for Torchwood IV
Jackson “Jack” Reynolds was born in Indianapolis, IN on September 1st 1976.
In high school he excelled in the ROTC program.
He joined the army at the age of 18.
Went to West Point and graduated near the top of his class.
Rose to the rank of Captain and led Special Operations missions in the war in Iraq.
One night on a routine patrol he and his men witnessed an alien ship crash on the outskirts of Mosul. The ship had an unidentified hostile alien race and Jack rose to the occasion and took care of the situation. U.N.I.T was part of the cleanup operation. The U.N.I.T. superiors were very impressed with Jackson and tried many times to get him to join them. Jackson refused wanting to stick with the army.
For unknown reasons, his commanding officer Colonel Obdiah Jones created an elite extraterrestrial and paranormal combat force known as The Initiative. Knowing Jackson’s experience in Iraq, Obdiah asked him to lead this group. He reluctantly accepted. Obdiah promoted him to the rank of Major.
Over the years Jackson and The Initiative spent their days fighting back alien and paranormal threats to the United States.
When Torchwood IV needed a weapons specialist, U.N.I.T. was quick to recommend Jackson and since The Initiative owed U.N.I.T. a favor, they pulled some strings and Jackson was then assigned to Torchwood IV.
Now back in Indianapolis, Jackson can continue his work protecting the Earth from extraterrestrial threats.
