  Some time ago, a man by the name of Norman Dockran developed devices which, when implanted in the human body, allowed one to live indefinitely and even regenerate, so long as a certain type of energy was beamed in the person's general direction.
The devices were about the same mass and bulk as several of the major organs — organs which, in order to work properly, the devices had to replace.  Naturally, Norman Dockran had the operation done to himself and a few respected colleagues.  By a few in the scientific community, he was praised as both the Louis Pasteur and the Benjamin Franklin of his time; but by far more others, he was shunned, shamed, and even ridiculed for going so bluntly against the Natural Order.  Several churches combined their efforts and managed to have him and his compatriots exiled from the United States simply because they were "no longer human."

They snuck out of the country with a vast collection of super-sophisticated equipment and settled down on one of the world's few remaining uncharted islands.  Some of the equipment they brought over allowed them to make the whole island invisible, even to radar.  Before long they had built a gigantic version of their power transmitter which could beam the energy necessary for "artificial life" to nearly anywhere in the world (although its efficacy would diminish with distance).  Soon, out of this skeleton pseudo-home, with the help of a voluntary labor force gathered through black-market ties, they constructed a tremendous Base of Operations, containing technology decades ahead of its time.

Even during the base's construction, hundreds of the workers were — voluntarily and involuntarily — converted from ordinary humans into artificially living, "perpetual people."  Norman changed his name to "Mister Eternal," and thereby dubbed his organization "The Harbingers of Eternal Mankind," or T.H.E.M..  His immortalized minions, whom the above character sheet represents, he took to calling his "Perpetual Army."  In his rush for the most modern technology in the years ahead, Mr. Eternal sent out small raiding parties of Perpetual Army members to perform several highly illegal tasks, such as stealing military secrets.  Fearing that some of his spies (he preferred the term "knowledge liberators") might betray him, he began to brainwash everyone before they embarked on a mission outside the island.

The enigmatic Nova is currently in T.H.E.M.'s employ.  Recently, however, one of their greatest creations (Tree) escaped the tight security of the island with an unwashed mind and a vendetta against T.H.E.M..  There is expected to be a major showdown very soon.
