Originally created as a mass-produced Mechatronic Automaton Service Model, Torque began his life like most Mecha at the time - as a construct designed and destined to carry out specific protocols without question or deviation. Purchased and assigned to janitorial duties at Central headquarters, it didn't take long for Torque's strangely individualistic quirks to catch the attention of Dr. Brenda Childres, a Mechatronic Engineer at Central Labs. Through experimentation and the secret removal of the pre-programmed protocols that were deemed mandatory by Mechatronic regulation at the time, Dr. Childres helped Torque to evolve beyond his intended place in life. Torque became one of the first Mecha to be placed onto a Central Agency team under a Central Director and helped to pave the way for future inclusion of Mecha on Central Agency teams as equal members and individuals, despite laws that continued to define Mecha as owned property.
