James MarstersEye color:
Dirty Blonde and curly, but he keeps it cropped short.Height:
149 lbsDistinguishing features:
Two noticeable scars: one through his left eyebrow and the other a thick slash between his last two ribs on his right side. There are a multitude of smaller scars in other places, but those are the two that healed poorly enough to be noticeable at first glance. General appearance:
First thing you'll probably notice about Hart is his wardrobe. The man is a bit ostentatious. Red Hussar jacket from a visit back to France to chat with Napoleon, a katana from killing a Samurai in Feudal Japan, and twin pistol holster slung low across his hips from a visit to the American West. Between wars and parties the clothes have seen a lot of wear.
Next thing you'll notice is his cheekbones, strong, defined. Really a beauty to look at he thinks.
Hart is in shape, he has to be. So he's lean and muscled, not an ounce of fat on him really. It's hard to gain any weight when you're always on the run. You'd better believe that Hart is well aware of his own attractiveness, perhaps too aware. His posture is arrogant all the way from the tilt of his chin to way he plants his feet. He walks like a man with purpose, with authority, with an agenda.

John is a selfish prick. His chief concern is himself and keeping himself intact and as rich as possible. He's also incredibly vain and tends to operate under the assumption that any sentient being is attracted to him. As a result, he flirts with everything. He's pompous and completely over-confident in his abilities, but he has just enough charm that people can often overlook those flaws.
He does have a cold and ruthless side to him. When John wants something, he'll take it. Simple as that. He doesn't mind resorting to violence and he's certainly not a man who has a problem with murder. If you make him an enemy, he will never forget it. Hart has a long memory and can hold a grudge for years.
Give him a drink and flirt with him a little and you'll see a whole knew side of Hart. He can be the life of the party if he wants to. Drinking with the best of them, dancing, making out with whoever cares for it. If you ever got to the point that he'd trust you he'd be a good friend. He's never really had a friend, so he might not recognize a friendship at first. Good luck to anyone who tries to take on that endeavor.

None that he knows of or cares to be responsible for.History:
John's childhood really isn't much to talk about. It's his adult life that is far more interesting. He was a boy with no parents, at least none that he'd ever met. They didn't want him and he couldn't be bothered to care about them. Growing up he begged, borrowed, and stole to get whatever he needed. Family was whatever other miscreants he'd end up squatting in a house with. Until they got caught or decided to betray each other. Every day was a fight, and John got very good at being cold and ruthless when he had to be. He found out that with one of three things you could get everything you needed in this world: money, violence, and sex.
John survived until adulthood though, somehow, and had a strange array of skills to offer the Time Agency when he joined on the very day he turned eighteen. The Time Agency served to reform John a bit. It gave him stability, people that he allegedly could trust, and more goals to focus on than where he was going to get his next meal. John turned out to be well suited to the life of a Time Agent. He was resourceful, a smooth liar, and had a taste for adventure that made him ever so reckless. Because of these qualities, he found himself partnered with Jack Harkness.
They were partnered together because they were supposed to be similar. John isn't sure about their similarities, but they were certainly compatible lovers. Found that bit out when him and Jack got stuck in a time loop. There's really not much to do when you're stuck living the same two weeks over and over again for five years. So he did the three things he did best with Jack. Drink, fight, and a good helping of sex. He was most certainly not the wife in that little relationship though. (But if he had been the wife, he would have been a damn good one.) Unfortunately he parted ways with Jack when his partner decided to leave the agency after losing a few years of his memory. Jack was always so touchy like that.
John moved on, but the Agency disbanded quite suddenly not long after that. Directionless and jobless, John took the time to thoroughly indulge himself in all of his vices. He was a free man, why shouldn't he allow himself a little fun? John traveled the centuries, picking up souvenirs from his travels. They make up most of his default wardrobe now.
After ending up in several unsuccessful rehabs, John decided he was reformed enough for his standards. He started using his vortex manipulator and his considerable amount of charm to steal whatever he felt would turn a nice profit. He even ended up running into his old partner, Jack Harkness. It wasn't the lovely sex-filled reunion he had hoped for though. Instead, there was a bit of a misunderstanding with Hart manipulating his team and almost killing a few of them. Completely blown out of proportion, but it ended up with Hart almost being blown up by a DNA bomb attached to his chest. Jacks lovely little Torchwood team disconnected the bomb and sent John back through the rift.
He met up with Jack again a little later, under more unfortunate circumstances. He found Jack's brother, Gray. Gray was even more ruthless than John was. Bonded him to to his vortex manipulator and forced him to not only abduct Jack but bury him alive. More of a mess that ended with half of Torchwood dead and he's sure Jack will never forgive him for that, even if he did help fix things in the end. He really doesn't like to talk about that particular event in his life. John decided to not go back through the rift, and explored the 51st century for a while instead.
When the Time Agency started banding back together, John decided he didn't want any part of it. He liked having the option to be villainous whenever he pleased. So with other like-minded individuals, some ex-time agents some who just fit the bill, he's started his own rogue agency. Their missions? Mayhem, debauchery, and turning a profit. What else did you expect?
