Andrew Garner was a neurologist and psychologist who specialized in working with the gifted people from the Index. During his career within S.H.I.E.L.D., he met and married agent Melinda May, though they eventually got divorced. Garner later returned to S.H.I.E.L.D. to help Skye with her powers as she was having trouble controlling them. While taking a vacation with May, Garner underwent Terrigenesis when he accidentally broke the Terrigen Crystal hidden in a book originally belonging to Jiaying, and he was transformed into the monster Lash.
Garner eventually learned how to control his transformations and managed to hide his true nature from everyone around him. During the Inhuman outbreak, Garner decided to establish a cover by helping S.H.I.E.L.D. while tracking down and killing Inhumans as Lash. However, when his secret was discovered, Garner was briefly taken prisoner by HYDRA before escaping and going on the run for several months. Eventually, Garner knew that he would be gone soon and that Lash was taking over so he willingly surrendered himself to S.H.I.E.L.D. in order to say goodbye to May. In a final attempt to kill the dark Inhuman Hive, Lash saved Daisy Johnson from his control, but while he carried his friend away, he was killed by Hellfire, dying a hero.
