History: Kid Galahad was groomed from a young age to fight crime and the Kid Whiz dedicated his life to that pursuit. Along the way, he passed on some of what he learned to other youthful crimefighters as the leader of a team that became known as the Whiz Kids. He spent some time in New York City studying with an aged master of Japanese martial arts.
Galahad dropped the “Kid” from his name when he entered college and left Midway City. Yearning to not only stop criminals but to see them locked away, Jerry studied law. After graduation, he returned to Midway City to work for the District Attorney by day and patrol the streets at night as Galahad. The demands of two full time jobs stretched Jerry to the limit and when the time came to make a decision, Galahad won out.
Inspired by Ultiman’s example, Galahad vowed to become a symbol of hope for the citizens of Midway City. Leaving the “night shift” to the Watchman, Galahad began operating during the daylight hours to become a visible presence in Midway. He worked with the police and the FBI, fighting not only crime but also corruption.
Meanwhile, Jerry became a corporate lawyer and a partner in the family business. He married his long time girlfriend Maggie and they bought a large mansion on Midway City’s famed Platinum Coast. Once owned by smugglers, Jerry converted the secret basement into the Dungeon, his own version of the Watch Tower.
Over the years the Watchman and Galahad fought crime individually and as a team. Galahad replaced his mentor in the Round Table of America and came to be regarded as the team leader by even the older members.
The Knight Watchman retired in his mid 50s, still in peak mental and physical condition, but age was catching up to him. Confident in Galahad’s abilities, Reid devoted himself to his career as an international fashion designer and to running the family financial empire.
Noting an increase in crime after Reid’s retirement, Jerry often adopted the Knight Watchman identity to patrol the city. In this way he could strike fear into the hearts of criminals by night and offer hope to the city by day as Galahad, the White Knight.
