Temple Fugate was a junior lawyer known for his punctuality and strict adherence to schedules. During one of his commutes, Hamilton Hill suggested he'd break his schedule so that he could relax one day, and so, Fugate changed his schedule - he took his break 15 minutes later. But he lost important documents, and searching for them meant he was late for a court appearance. When he found out Hill was working for the rival firm in that case, he accused him of deliberately undermining the case. Driven mad, he took it upon himself to ruin Hill's career and after learning the entire time schedule of Gotham City, crowned himself the Clock King.
