For all time. Always.
~ The TVA's motto.
Stepping off your path created a nexus event, which left unchecked, could branch off into madness, leading to another Multiversal War. But don't worry, to make sure that doesn't happen, the Time Keepers created the TVA and all its incredible workers. The TVA has stepped in to fix your mistake and set time back on its predetermined path.
~ Miss Minutes in a video intended for variants who are about to be judged.
Once I isolated our timeline, all I had to do was manage the flow of time and prevent any further branches. Hence, the TVA. Hence, the Time-Keepers and a highly efficient bureaucracy. Hence, ages and ages of cosmic harmony.
~ He Who Remains explaining the purpose of the TVA to Loki Laufeyson and Sylvie Laufeydottir.

The Time Variance Authority, often abbreviated as the TVA, is the main antagonistic faction of the 2021 Disney+ series Loki.

It is a quasi-religious bureaucratic organization founded by He Who Remains in order to protect the Multiverse by preserving the proper flow of time, preventing the rise of his hostile Variants, which includes Kang the Conqueror. The agency is tasked to maintain the "Sacred timeline", eliminating branching timelines caused by nexus events in order to retain stability. Those who are "employed" at the TVA are actually Variants who were abducted from the Sacred Timeline and brainwashed to serve the agency's agenda.

After He Who Remains was killed by Sylvie Laufeydottir, an alternate TVA was founded in which Kang had taken over as leader of the organization.

History

Past

According to the TVA propaganda, countless timelines battled one another for dominance across the Multiverse in a cataclysmic war that lasted for eons and nearly resulted in the absolute destruction of existence. To prevent this, the Time-Keepers brought peace and order to the Multiverse by arranging the timelines into a single "Sacred Timeline". In order to preserve the timeline's proper flow, the Time-Keepers then created the Time Variance Authority to police the Multiverse from Variants who create nexus events by stepping off of the path that the Time-Keepers created. If nexus events are left unchecked, the timeline could branch off and lead to another Multiversal War.

However, the truth is that the real creator of the TVA is He Who Remains, who settled at the Citadel of the End of Time after the Multiversal War while the Time-Keepers are in reality just mindless androids who serve as puppet rulers. Since then, he controlled the organization without the members knowing. He Who Remains created the TVA to prevent the return of his own Variants who were the cause of the last Multiversal War. Most members of the TVA also are unaware that many of the kidnapped Variants are brainwashed to serve the organization, with every one at the TVA being versions of people that exist on the Sacred Timeline.

The TVA works erasing branched timelines and capturing the Variants which caused the branches. If not brainwashed, the captured Variants are usually pruned and sent to a void at the end of time. Similarly, the pruned realities are also disintegrated and its matter sent to the Void, to prevent growing branches on the Sacred Timeline.

At some point, The Variance Authority were sent to arrest Sylvie, because she somehow created a branched timeline despite that she barely did anything besides play with her toys, and sent her to the TVA until she escaped.

Arresting Loki

During an alternate timeline of 2012, Loki was able to acquire access to the Tesseract and escaped, bringing him to Gobi Desert in Mongolia.

This caused his timeline to branch, so a TVA unit lead by Hunter B-15 immediately arrives and apprehended him for disrupting the Sacred Timeline. Loki was brought into the TVA Office and goes through a Variant process before being brought into a courtroom to stand in front of TVA Judge Ravonna Renslayer. She asks Loki if he is guilty or not, to which he denied of doing any crimes against the timeline.

Loki tries to use his powers, before he is told that magic doesn't work in the TVA. Ravonna sentences Loki to be reset, before he is saved by a TVA analyst called Mobius, who convinces Ravonna to use Loki as a way to find a fugitive variant of Loki.

Trivia

  • In the comics, the Time Variance Authority is an organization that was formed to monitor realities throughout the multiverse and to keep temporal interference to a minimum.
  • According to Loki composer Natalie Holt, the theme of the TVA heard throughout the series ("TVA") was written for Kang the Conqueror. This hints towards Kang's takeover of the agency at the end of the first season.
