Characters: Team Torchwood.
Written For: Challenge 438: Safe at tw100.
Summary: The Torchwood Team are Cardiff’s defenders.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
The people of Cardiff, both residents and visitors, are Torchwood’s responsibility. They’re the first and only line of defence between the objects and aliens spat out by the Rift, and the ordinary people wandering the city’s streets, oblivious to the existence of otherworldly threats.
It’s a responsibility all Torchwood agents have to take seriously; as a rule, humans aren’t ready to deal with the existence of aliens. But it’s not just earth’s inhabitants who need protecting; most aliens aren’t ready to deal with the existence of humans either.
It’s up to Torchwood to keep both sides safe from each other.
