Agent Edward Lott was a CEO of a consumer manufacturing company and secretly an agent working for Checkmate in the CW TV series Smallville.
He appeared as a major antagonist in the Season 9 episode "Checkmate".
He was portrayed by Timothy E. Brummond who also voiced Megabyte in the ReBoot TV series.
At some point in his life, Lott became an agent of Checkmate while being a consumer company CEO.
Edward Lott participated in a mission for Checkmate and he was supposedly to capture Tess Mercer. Tess disguised herself with a dark wig and clothing and walked through the streets but was spotted by Lott and another agent who attacked her.
In reality they were all in on the kidnapping as a ploy to draw out Green Arrow in an attempt to capture him. Lott cornered her but before he can shoot her, Green Arrow intervenes. After a short spat about "black-on-black" wardrobe, Green Arrow tasers Lott and he fell unconscious.
Agent Lott was leaving when he was approached by Detective John Jones who demanded the location of Checkmate's castle. Lott refused to tell him anything and fires his gun, although to no avail. After trying to shoot John, Lott seemed to want to comply, but he committed suicide by biting on a hidden cyanide pill and fell to the ground in the alley.
John read his memory and learned the location of Checkmate just before the agent died. Chloe Sullivan eventually tracked down Lott's ear piece which John Jones had, and learned that he was now on a slab in the morgue after last being seen alive with Jones.
