Torr VI was Imperial Sovereign of the New Shi'ar Imperium, and was elected by the Imperial Council after they were deadlocked over five candidates, including four of Torr VI's siblings and one of his cousins. Unlike his father Torr V, Torr VI was never a member of the Fist of the Shi'ar People, but support for that organization within the Imerial Council forced him to consent to the Fist's imperialist, expansionist aims to have the Imperium conquer the entirety of of the Pocket Universe. Torr VI later in his reign and life converted from the Chandilar-based official, orthodox branch of the Church of the True God in favor of a heterodox splinter sect that viewed the True God as a female deity.
