"I betrayed my family. Especially the memory of my beloved daughter. I can't take that back. I would have tried to make it right, but an unethical attorney named Jeryn Hogarth never gave me the chance. She disregarded due process, and she exposed my transgressions, and now I must return the favor."
―Peter Lyonne[src]

Peter Lyonne was the husband of Kith Lyonne. When it was revealed that he was embezzling money, his wife decided to leave him, prompting him to commit suicide and blame Jeri Hogarth.


Early Life

"How long have you and Peter been married?"
"A year after you dumped me. Started as a rebound, turned into 23 years and a family."
Jeri Hogarth and Kith Lyonne[src]

Lyonne met his future wife Kith, during her senior year of college, shortly after a bad break up with Jeri Hogarth, and within a year, they were married. He became a professor at Bronwyn University, teaching classes such as Ethical Law.[2]

Meeting Jeri Hogarth

"I've also followed your, uh, defending these vigilante super people."
"Oh, only a couple of them."
"Still, it's a whole new branch of the law. It's absolutely fascinating."
―Peter Lyonne and Jeri Hogarth[src]

Lyonne and his wife Kith held the Zoey Lyonne Arts Scholarship Benefit Concert in honor of their late daughter. Much to their surprise, Jeri Hogarth, Kith's past flame was in attendance. Kith and Hogarth discussed their past. It had been twenty five years since they last seen each other. Hogarth then pointed out the fact that she gave and supported the benefit concert every year. Lyonne had been following Hogarth's defense of super powered vigilantes, as he was a lawyer, but was now a professor of criminal law. Before leaving, Hogarth gave Kith her card as they were to arrange a meeting to catch up.[3]

Exposed by Hogarth

"I have been studying a new and very treacherous legal specialty. The defense of the superhuman vigilante. Jeryn Hogarth and her firm are leading this charge. Hence, these powered felons are at her beck and call. Her clients have been accused of assault, of murder, of much more. Yet Jeryn Hogarth sees to it that these super criminals still continue to walk our streets. Every single one of us, the entire fabric of our legal system, is at risk. I can't fight this fight. It's too late for me. Oh, God. I beg you, somebody, stop her."
―Peter Lyonne[src]

Unbeknownst to Lyonne, Jeri Hogarth was conspiring against him in order to steal Kith Lyonne away. She sent her investigator, Malcolm Ducasse to dig up whatever he could. Ducasse discovered that Lyonne had been making withdrawals from the scholarship fund that they had set up in their daughter's memory and used the cash to buy gifts for his girlfriends and pay their rent. Hogarth exposed this to the world. Lyonne quickly realized this was Hogarth's doing and confronted her at her apartment. Lyonne admitted to doing all those things, but he claimed that he was going to tell Kith. He accused Hogarth of destroying their life so that Kith would come to her, but Kith didn’t want to hear his excuses. Peter told Hogarth that she couldn’t have Kith, to which Hogarth replied "neither can you."

Not long after, Peter posted a video, where he accused Hogarth of ruining his life and having powered individuals at her beck and call. As it turned out, Peter filmed the video in his bathtub, as he slit his wrist and bled out. His final request was that someone stop Jeri Hogarth. And in his last words, he apologized to his wife and son. The police later found his body in his bathtub.[4]


"Peter Lyonne was a troubled man. Unstable, angry, despairing. He needed to blame someone."
