The Clairvoyant is a mysterious figure to whom the known members of Project Centipede turn for advice on how to proceed. Raina, although acting as a voice for the Clairvoyant when giving orders, apparently never met nor even glimpsed her own leader, and remained oblivious to his true identity.
Raina becomes the Clairvoyant's direct subordinate in "The Magical Place", when the former terminates Edison Po via his cellphone. Ian Quinn is shown in "Seeds" to be at the very least an ally, if not an employee, of the Clairvoyant.
In "Turn, Turn, Turn", when Coulson and his team are reacting to the recent revelation of HYDRA's infiltration of S.H.I.E.L.D., Garrett slips up and reveals himself to be the Clairvoyant. After fighting with Coulson while May handled the other HYDRA agents, Garrett nearly got the better of Coulson, but was stunned by Fitz with a stun grenade. He was later arrested by Agent Hand and sent for imprisonment in the Fridge. He was later saved by Ward, when Ward shot and killed the two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents escorting him and Hand, revealing himself to be with HYDRA as well.
