Temple Fugate used to be a sucessful efficiency expert in Starling City who kept to a very tight schedule. However, on the day of a very important court date, Fugate, under the advice of an attorney, broke his schedule, only for it to result in him not only losing his legal papers in a series of mishaps, but to lose his company when he was found guilty by default. His misfortunes were compounded a year later when, convinced by a faulty medical database that he was gonna die, Fugate was arrested while trying to rob a bank, resulting in his dying sister passing away alone in Hospice seven months later, a month after he was supposed to die. Fugate, who blamed all of his misfortunes on breaking away from his schedules, snaps and becomes the infamous Clock King. Until recently, he was imprisoned in Stryker's Island thanks to The Titans. But, on exactly the 4th annivery of his capture, Clock King escaped and is currently at large.

Clock King has a very calm demeanour in almost every situation he is in. Even when upset or angry, he tends to speak in a very calm, calculating, even tone of voice, unless significantly angered or upset. He approaches every situation methodically, remaining unflappable in almost every situation, unless, of course, something goes wrong with his "perfect time table."

Temple Fugate is a very obsessive man, especially regarding to time and schedules. Fugate has been known to large amounts of time and resources to fulfilling whatever it is he is currently obessed with. This often manifests in ways like developing very detailed schedules for his actions the next day, constantly checking the time with one of his many watches, doing very through research on people and places and their time habits, and constantly cleaning his rather extensive clock and watch collection.

This obsession also leaks out to his men, who Temple has on a very short leash. He insists that his men follow a very strict dress code, follow set schedules like clockwork, and to be as efficient as possible while on the job.

Fugate is a sociopath through and through. Even before turning into the Clock King, Fugate had been known to fire people for even the smallest of infractions, especially if it involved their timing, and not shed a tear. Nowadays, Clock King seemingly has no conscience whatsoever. He is able to pull off large scale crimes that can leave many people hurt or possibly dead and feel no remorse or pangs of conscience whatsoever and continue on with his day like nothing happened.

It may not look it, but Clock King can, and will hold a grudge. Whenever he feels like someone has slighted him significantly enough he will be determined to bring down their downfall, even if it takes years. This can be quite an annoyance for heroes who deal with him on a regular basis. For at any time or place, Clock King could show up wanting to avenge himself for some "wrong" committed unto him.

During his younger years, Temple Fugate took up fencing and quickly proved to be natural at it. Years of practice has made Temple a master at it, able to compete with some of the best fencers of the world.

Gadget Making:
Temple Fugate was once an apprentice Clockmaker to his Father, who was a master of the craft. Nowadays, Clock King uses this craft for a much more sinister purpose, to make weaponry. Clock King is able to make complex gadgetry out of simple looking timepieces, effectivly hiding their true purporse behind very simple looking, and very accurate, clocks and watches.

Tactical Analysis:
Clock King's most infamous skill is his almost perfect sense of timing. With just a glance, Clock King can accurately determine how long it can take anyone, even a superhero to do certain actions like throw a punch or fire a energy bolt, allowing him to dodge attacks more easily. With intensive research, Clock King can learn more complex things like how long it would take the police to arrive to a jewlery store on the otherside of town, when the subway would arrive to break his fall by landing on it's roof, all the way to how long it would take for a text message to arrive to someone in another city.

Fencing Foil:
Clock King carries a Fencing Foil with him at all times, which he carries around in a near invisible sheath on his person. This blade is well maintained, and very sharpe, and can penetrate up to five layers of cloth, and can even go between gaps in armour, no matter how small.

Clock King has lairs in Gotham, NYC, and Metropolis. These lairs, which are often hidden away in Industrial districts, serve as both a workshop and safe house for Fugate and his associates. These lairs, besides being having walls covered in clocks, are often equiped with a high-tech security system and various traps which are designed to not only get rid of intruders, but to alert Fugate and his men that they have company. Each lair is also equiped with a escape route, which helps Fugate make quick escapes.

Money Laundry:
Fugate has developed a very efficeint method of cleaning dirty money. Fugate's associates send the money through a series of offshore bank accounts, where bribed officials help clean the money for them. This process, which is perfectly timed to last up to a week, results in cleaned money to be put to use in more villainous schemes.

Second Hands:
Clock King's Second Hands are his henchmen and partner's in crime. These criminals, who are clad in very identifiable black sweaters with an icon of a clock face, black slacks, and often a black flat cap, are very attuned to their boss' obsessive time keeping, able to execute crimes more efficiently than most street crooks. However, besides that, they are still normal crooks and can be easily taken out by even a street level hero.

Time Gadgets:
Clock King main weaponry, besides his fencing foil, is his infamous array of time gadgetry. These gadgets, which are often handcrafted to resemble clocks and watches, are very efficient, and quite deadly. Amongst these deadly time pieces are exploding pocket watches, Grandfather Clocks that contain various kinds of gases, wrist watches that fire razor blades, cuckoo clocks that fire real bullets, and more.

Temple Fugate has recently escaped prison. As a result, every cop and hero within NYC, Metropolis, Gotham, and Starling City is keeping an eye out for him. As a result, Temple Fugate will have a much harder time interacting in public without a disguise, as his face is plastered on every media outlet and police station.

Clock King's obsessive nature is his biggest weakness. Everything Clock King does is governed by a very strict schedule which Fugate absolutley refuses to break. If Fugate breaks this schedule, either accidently or on purpose, he will often suffer from a mental breakdown, making him much more easier to catch. Clock King's plots are also highly dependent on a very strict schedule and any interupptions, delays, or changes in this schedule can often cause the entire plan to collapse in on itself.
