- "The only one I fear is that whom Alchemy serves, the Dark Lord Savitar."
Acolyte was among the members of the Cult of Savitar, worshiping Savitar as the God of Speed and Dark Lord, fearful of the judgement he'd bring upon the world at due time. This unnamed acolyte, along with Craig, were in Alchemy's posse during a ceremony in Alchemy's lair, where they expected to transform Wally West into his meta-human self, making him join their cause. However, the event turned out to be a trap set by the Flash and CCPD. Unable to resist police officers, Alchemy and the acolytes were about to be apprehended, but were saved by the timely arrival of Savitar himself, who took on the policemen, and then the Flash.
Savitar's appearance allowed the acolytes to regroup and capture Joe West. He shook them off, trying to shoot down the armored and invisible Savitar, which gave some time for Alchemy to escape. Joe tried to pursue him, but the acolyte stopped the police officer, attacking him from behind. Joe fought him off again and apprehended the suspect, bringing him to Central City Police Department. There Joe interrogated the acolyte, trying to torture him, but to no avail. As he left the interrogation room, Caitlin Snow entered in his stead, destroyed the camera and spoke to the acolyte. The man revealed his knowledge of Caitlin's fear for her powers as Killer Frost, and claimed that he fears no one but the "Dark Lord Savitar", making Killer Frost torture him with her ice powers. As the acolyte screamed in pain, the CCPD officers rushed into the interrogation room, finding the suspect frozen, with no meta-human in sight.
