An unnamed man (died 2012) was the owner of a shoe shop and the father of Patty Spivot.
Early in Patty Spivot's life, she hit her head and fell into a swimming pool, fortunately, he got to her in time and stopped her from dying.
While waiting in line at the bank to make his weekly deposit, the man was shot in the face by Mark Mardon for the few hundred dollars he had on him. Patty blamed herself for his death as she ditched him to hang out with her friends instead of being the one to take the deposits that day. Patty became a police officer after he died and joined the Meta-human task force at the Central City Police Department to get justice for her father and revenge against Mardon.
