Earth Peace Union TPC (Terrestrial Peaceable Consortium) (地球平和連合TPC, Chikyū Heiwa Rengō TPC) is an organization that was founded by Souichiro Sawai when he was the secretary general of the United Nations back in the 21st century.

Overview

TPC Dive Hangar internal

TPC is an international organization established with the primary objective of maintaining lasting peace on Earth and within the international community, while also safeguarding humanity from the threats posed by frequent occurrences of mysterious phenomena, monsters, and natural disasters. To achieve this goal, TPC's core mission revolves around a focus on technological development and innovation. It continuously conducts cutting-edge scientific research and drives technological advancements, all while actively seeking resource exploration beyond our planet to ensure the safety of Earth and the future of humanity.

As an international organization, TPC has established branches and scientific development centers around the world, engaging in long-term research activities in relevant fields. However, with changing times, particularly during moments of significant upheaval on Earth, TPC has gradually bolstered its military arm, evolving into a combat-capable military organization. Simultaneously, it has established multiple branches to address various challenges and emergencies that may arise in the future. To handle Paranormal, TPC has also formed several specialized teams and combat units.

Several years after its establishment, TPC has expanded its role in space exploration and peacekeeping. Its mission has also broadened to not only include the development of new frontiers in space but also emphasize the necessity of its role as a military organization. Multiple space bases have been established in Earth's orbit, planetary bodies within the solar system, and satellites. However, this increase in capabilities has led to criticism in public discourse, raising questions about whether TPC's military expansion aligns with its historical pursuit of peace.[1]

History

Founding

Souichiro Sawai TPC Founding

In the early 21st century, Souichiro Sawai achieved the realization of everlasting world peace through his visits to various countries and persuasion of governments to disarm.

In the early 21st century, then-United Nations Secretary-General Souichiro Sawai believed that, for the sake of humanity's future, nations worldwide should unequivocally abandon the use of force as a means to resolve disputes. Some scientists also endorsed Sawai's perspective, arguing that with the emergence of issues such as fluctuations in Earth's climate and extraterrestrial intelligent life, cross-border cooperation between nations became increasingly imperative. Despite the United Nations' resolution-based efforts towards nuclear disarmament during this period, an international defense force known as UNDF (地球防衛軍, Chikyū Bōeigun) was temporarily established in the year 2000.[2]

As uncertainties and apprehensions about unknown disasters and their consequences mount, nations are increasingly concerned about the state of international affairs. Sawai rejects the notion of achieving global unity through military force and contemplates a complete abandonment of armed forces. He presents a plan to restructure the United Nations into an international peacekeeping organization.

Souichiro Sawai TPC Founding 2

Amidst the turbulent international landscape, the plan to establish TPC was discussed with the involvement of the scientific community and governments from around the world.

The core functions of this organization will be assumed by the United Nations Scientific Committee, with the addition of institutions such as IEPF (国際環境保護連盟, Kokusai Kankyō Hogo Renmei), WUSRO (世界先端科学研究機構, Sekai Sendan Kagaku Kenkyū Kikō), NSDA (宇宙新開發事業团, Uchū Shinkaihatsu Jigyōdan), and others. After discussions at various heads of state meetings, the establishment of this peacekeeping organization was approved, and UNDF will be downsized and incorporated into the organization in the form of a Police Department.[2]

In 2004, under the theme "Towards a More Peaceful and Beautiful Planet Earth" (地球、より平和で美しい星に, Chikyū, yori heiwa de utsukushī hoshi ni), following the public release of the construction plan, the aforementioned organizations underwent complete consolidation. TPC was officially established in 2005, replacing its former status under the United Nations, and UNDF was subsequently dissolved.To the Southern Limit[2]

Ultraman Tiga Era

Dive Hangar Night

In 2005, Dive Hangar became the Far East headquarters of TPC after the dissolution of UNDF.

TPC took over the Dive Hangar located on the Boso Peninsula in Chiba Prefecture, Japan, from UNDF, establishing it as the Far East Headquarters. In 2006, they successfully conducted the final entry tests for the newly formed unit, GUTS. Regularly, top-level meetings were convened at the International Conference Facility on Coreomeos Island.

In 2007, a series of events triggered by a meteorite impact on Earth led to significant changes in the situation. Kaiju disasters became increasingly frequent worldwide. With the appearance of Ultraman Tiga, TPC began focusing on the development of armed technologies centered around the modification of manned machinery to counter the threat posed by Kaiju.Stone of Legends

Operation Clitters Annihilation

Several batches of TPC troops died in Operation Clitters Annihilation.

In 2008, due to the frequent occurrence of Clitters' disasters in various countries, TPC's General Staff convened a meeting and decided to launch "Operation Clitters Annihilation." However, during this battle, a significant number of TPC forces tragically sacrificed themselves while confronting Jobarieh.One Vanishing Moment

In 2010, when the ultra-ancient ruins of R'lyeh surfaced in the waters near New Zealand, they unleashed dark forces that posed a global threat. Dive Hangar was attacked and damaged during this event. TPC actively engaged in battles against Gatanothor and his soldiers, ultimately succeeding in protecting the Earth with the assistance of Ultraman Tiga. Following the imminent disaster, peace was restored worldwide, and nations began the process of reconstruction.To the Shining Ones

However, one year after the disappearance of Ultraman Tiga, internal divisions arose within TPC regarding Earth's defense plans. Among them, the TPC Police Bureau initiated a secretive project called Project F under the guise of an investigative squad, with a mission to explore R'lyeh. Simultaneously, the concept of the "Neo Frontier Plan" (ネオフロンティア計画, Neo Frontier Keikaku), centered around space exploration, emerged as TPC's new slogan.[2]

TPC Tiga Era 12

TPC holds countermeasures meeting regarding the disappearance of R'lyeh investigation team.

In 2012, the R'lyeh investigation team attempted to transport three Giants of Darkness statues discovered on the island for potential use as new weapons. However, this plan ended in failure. When the seal on the Giants of Darkness was broken, leading to their resurrection, communication was lost between the investigation team and TPC. The General Staff convened an internal meeting and decided to dispatch GUTS to the incident site for a rescue mission and to carry out operations aimed at minimizing the damage within the smallest possible area. This incident came to be known as the R'lyeh Tragedy.

Following the conclusion of the event, all data related to Project F and records of Tiga's appearance were sealed by the Intelligence Bureau.Ultraman Tiga: The Final Odyssey

TPC mars 1

In the expansion of the Neo Frontier Plan, TPC established a base on Mars.

After the official implementation of the Neo Frontier Plan, efforts began to establish forward bases in space. The first phase involved the creation of a Mars colonization force and the construction of a large-scale weapons manufacturing facility on Coreomeos Island. Simultaneously, the organization underwent its first restructuring, expanding its organizational scope. During this period, Super GUTS was established to replace the disbanded GUTS.[2]

In 2017, TPC successfully completed the construction of the Marineris Mars base and officially launched the Mars atmospheric modification program. However, during this time, TPC had to further bolster its military capabilities due to attacks by Spheres and the emergence of a new giant, Ultraman Dyna.A New Light (Part 1)

Prometheus Hangar

Super GUTS members being introduced to the Prometheus.

In 2018, after years of development, the newly constructed space battleship Prometheus, manufactured on Coreomeos Island, was finally completed. However, it went out of control during the Alien Monera hijacking incident and used Neo Maxima to destroy half of Coreomeos Island's area. Subsequently, Prometheus was forcibly transformed into Deathfacer by a UFO. However, following the prevention of Alien Monera's human extinction plan, all development and usage of Neo Maxima were banned.Ultraman Tiga & Ultraman Dyna: Warriors of the Star of Light

Police Bureau secretly restarted Project F and created Terranoid.

Over the following two years, in the face of several increasingly dire disaster situations, Chief of Staff Kihachi secretly pushed for the redevelopment of the Project F at the Police Bureau's research institute on the Mars base. By May 2020, he, along with his squad, the Black Buster Corps, kidnapped a member of Super GUTS named Asuka and initiated the formal launch of Terranoid as part of the Project F.

However, when Sphere possessed Terranoid, it transformed into Zeluganoid and began to wreak havoc at the base. Witnessing Asuka's selfless protection of everyone, Kihachi had a change of heart and ultimately sacrificed himself to save Dyna.Final Chapter I: A New Shadow

Sphere Dyna 2

Gran-Sphere releases threat information to TPC.

Subsequently, Gran-Sphere initiated an absorption campaign, nearly consuming all the planets in the solar system. TPC's bases equipped Super GUTS' Clarkov NF-3000 with Neo Maxima cannons to aid in Dyna's battles. In the end, they successfully defeated Gran-Sphere through their combined efforts. However, Dyna disappeared into a wormhole formed by the gravitational collapse triggered by the impact, while the planets consumed by Gran-Sphere were restored to their original state.Final Chapter III: Toward Tomorrow...

In the 2020s and 2030s, TPC underwent a second round of restructuring. They not only established three Super GUTS branches across various locations in the solar system but also, in 2027, founded Neo Super GUTS on Earth.Ultraman Dyna: Zero Drive Towards Tomorrow[2]
