Lachlan Luthor was born in 1916 in Scotland. He eventually married Eliza Meehan and had a son where he grew up in the Suicide Slum of Metropolis. In 1961, Lachlan was in Smallville, where he tried to steal Louise McCallum's purse, but was tossed aside by Joe the Drifter. Later, Lachlan was soon hired by officer Billy Tate to kill Joe the Drifter. Billy let him out of jail, and Lachlan went to the McCallum farm. He came upon Joe and Louise in the barn, and shot at Joe. The bullets bounced off of him and hit Louise, killing her.

Around the late 1970s, Lachlan and his wife Eliza were killed in their apartment by a fire that was caused by Lionel and his friend Morgan Edge in order for Lionel to claim the insurance money.

Years later, Lex Luthor questioned his father about his grandparents after talking to Clark Kent about "a Lachlan Luthor" who was arrested for attempted theft. Lionel said that they died in a fire but, after further investigation and a confession from Edge who refereed to Lachlan as a "bastard father", Lex discovered that Lionel was responsible. Lachlan was avenged, as Lex built up a case against Lionel, who went to jail as a result of his crime.
