This Life-Model Decoy of S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Clay Quartermain was created by the Encoders under the orders of the Deltite, an advanced LMD created by Arnim Zola who replaced several S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives with LMDs, including the Executive Council.
Quartermain's LMD, created after the death of the original Clay fighting Hydra, was the pinnacle of the S.H.I.E.L.D. and Roxxon's Project: Delta. As a perfect recreation of the original template, his encoded personality was so thorough that the LMD didn't even realize he was not Clay at first. Meanwhile, S.H.I.E.L.D. had been conquered from within by the corrupted Deltite's Board of LMDs, and the new Executive Director, an LMD of Jasper Sitwell, had his assistants, LMDs of James Woo and Jack Rollins monitoring Clay closely in search for any sign of anomaly. Indeed, the personality encoding was apparently SO effective, the Quartermain LMD actually remembered the death of his template, something no other Deltite was able to recall.
Quartermain eventually realized he was only a copy of the man he thought he was. After the Deltite and his agents captured Nick Fury and the others fighting against Project: Delta, all were brought aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. Space Station. Clay chose to sabotage the Deltite's plans, damaging the power core at the center of the base. He suffered lethal exposure to radiation in the process, but sent the Satellite into meltdown. Fury and his allies escaped, but Clay stayed behind to die with the other Deltites in the explosion that followed.
