Quote1 No. Your sacrifice has just begun. The world can exist only in balance. If there is no Traveler, there can be no Destroyer. Quote2
-- Edward Teague Quest

Edward and Genevieve Teague searched for the Stones of Power, believing they could hold some information regarding the Traveler. The other members of Veritas knew about their expeditions around the world looking for the stones and were unsure whether they wanted them to share with the group and the Traveler.

Edward cut his son Jason off when he refused to join his family's law firm of Merrian, Teague and Wiseman. He and Jason were estranged for years by the time he transferred from Metropolis University to attend Central Kansas A&M. While taking classes, Jason worked as the assistant football coach at Smallville High School. Genevieve and Jason were descendants of the Duchess Gertrude, who was cursed to be destroyed by Countess Margaret Isobel Thoreaux and her descendants.

After the deaths of his family and the other members of Veritas, Edward went into hiding and became a priest at the St. Christopher's Cathedral in Montreal, Canada. After years of waiting, Teague saw the Traveler, Clark Kent. After learning of everything that had happened thus far, Teague felt that Clark was weak and should be stopped before he could be used for personal gain by Lex Luthor. He subdued Clark with a piece of Kryptonite hidden in his cane and performed a Kryptonian ritual that was meant to sacrifice a warrior, carving the Mark of El on Clark's chest. He then fought Lex after he found the missing piece of the Orb in a clock.

Resentful over what he had done to Clark and failing to keep the Orb's missing piece hidden from Lex, Teague decided to run away to South America and go under a different name, Alejandro Santos. Then, Brainiac, posing as Kara Kent, threatened Teague to tell about the location of the Orb, and Teague told Brainiac that Lex would have the answer he was looking for. After Brainiac flew out of the plane, Teague went down with the plane to its destruction. He was the last member of Veritas to die.

  • Edward Teague was portrayed by two different actors over three episodes Rick Ravanello for the first and Robert Picardo for the latter two.
