Orr was a genetically engineered sexual psychomorph created on Sorva and a member of Torchwood Three in 2017.


Once Orr spent some time living with a partnerof the same species. Apart from that period, Orr described their life as always lonely. (Orr)


Ro-Jedda gave Orr as a gift to Vincent Parry, with her taking the form of his late wife Catrin. They were wearing a control necklace of maximum destructive power. If it went off, the whole of Cardiff would have been razed to the ground.

When Ro-Jedda later had Vincent killed, Orr wound up in Torchwood Three. Their attempts to disarm the necklace were unsuccessful, but God intervened (Thoughts and Prayers) and an explosion did not take place. Orr was left to live their life as they wanted it. (Orr)

Feeling indebted to Torchwood Three, Orr helped them investigate Sorvix deaths in Cardiff Bay Intelligent Hotel and Spa. Their unique physiology was crucial to uncovering that the hotel itself was the real culprit. After that, Jack offered Orr a job with Torchwood. (Superiority Complex)

Orr had a near-fatal reaction to an alien sexual parasite and helped identify its alien rodent carrier. (Love Rat) they also reacted to the Ritz Tower created by Bilis Manger to channel human anger. (A Kill to a View)


When Cardiff went blind, Orr stayed with Ng, but told her to flee when they began feeling the predator’s urges. God later approached them. (See No Evil)

God told Orr that they were the only one who could maintain the “night watch”, and to use their unique powers to absorb the pieces of the Light that followed the Night Sun and latched to people’s pain. God showed Orr her true powers, declaring”God is love”, which turned Orr into a puddle. (Night Watch)

Orr lived in a tent where they pondered their new identity, as they no longer transformed into others’ ideal sexual partners but who they wanted to see the most. They were approached by Bethan Foster when they took the form of her son Anthony and was later forced to leave the tent after being bombarded with visitors wanting them to do the same. Bethan told Tyler about Orr, causing him to call Jack. (A Mother’s Son)

God, feeling that Orr was the only person capable of truly loving her, transferred her powers to them. Orr used them to supply the people of Cardiff with drinking water until they could bear the strain no longer. (Day Zero) God attempted to reclaim her powers from Orr through sex but was unable to. Yvonne used the Lens to direct Orr’s powers at Erebus through the Rift, destroying the Committee’s planet. Like the rest of Torchwood, Orr went on the run after the Committee’s defeat. (Thoughts and Prayers)


Orr did not want to cause loss of innocent lives. (Orr) they cared even about those who threatened their life. (Superiority Complex) they preferred the personal pronoun”they ” (Orr) and title”Mx”. (Superiority Complex) Their empathy made them attuned to others, sometimes providing deep insights into the others’ psyche. (Superiority Complex)


The characterof Orr was created by Russell T Davies. (VOR 102)
