In 1962, a mysterious man known by the name of Bruce Edward Morrow, origin unknown, gathered nine of the free world's leading industrialists into an organisation known as the Council of Tomorrow. What method of coercion he may have used to achieve this fest remains a matter mostly for conjecture. The concensus of noted historians indicates that Morrow was a rare form of Esper. He seems to have possesed the ability to transport himself and a small amount of nearby matter into or out of the future. Building a convincing argument from the future, he and the Council structured an organisation dedicated to the continued survival of the Human race beyond the point of destruction.
This organisation brought forth the concept of the Morrow Project; an ambitious plan to cryogenically freeze special teams and equipment to aid in the reconstruction of civilisation after nuclear war. For many years the Project secretly stored their teams to await the proper time for reawakening. Gradually, their processes improved and their equipment became more advanced. In 1979, Morrow returned from a long absence bearing a small device which proved to be a functioning fusion power plant and advanced laser technology. In 1987, the Project carried out a complete updating of all the previously "stored" equipment, opening the buried and sealed chambers of the sleepers without waking them, and leaving behind new equipment, vehicles and the instruction manuals on how to operate them.
Morrow was a tall, slender Caucasian male with a deep tan, grey eyes and sandy hair. He was soft-spoken, with a baritone voice and a Boston accent. Certain of his habits indicated that he may have studied at Harvard, but he does not appear in any of the alumni records.
