Gregory Giles was a member of the HCPD, originally trained in forensics he transferred to the Counterterrorism Bureau. During a raid on a terrorist safehouse, a terrorist triggered an explosive, Gregory was injured and thrown clear. (In actuality his latent time powers manifested and stopped time, initially confused by everything suddenly stopping, he crawled to safety before time restarted). Due to his injuries he lost the use of his legs. Released from hospital and invalided out of the department, he decided to continue pursuing terrorists and other criminals in his own time. His disability limits what he can do, so he focuses on assisting other vigilantes and crimefighters however he can. Being limited mainly to a supporting role doesn't sit well with him, and he devotes much of his spare time to devising or discovering a way to walk again.
