Mister Lahey was a resident of Beacon Hills, California and the father of Camden and Isaac Lahey. In the mid 2000s, Lahey was the coach of the Beacon Hills High School swim team. After winning a state championship in 2006, Lahey hosted a pool party at his house. A nine-year-old boy named Matt came over to trade a vintage comic book with young Isaac Lahey. Isaac's older brother Camden pushed Matt into the swimming pool while the others were partying, unaware or unconcerned that Matt did not know how to swim. Even as Matt was drowning, he could hear the others carousing and Coach Lahey shouting at him through the water. Matt survived, but nursed a scorn that would eventually evolve into a murderous need for vengeance. (TW: Fury)
