In 1938 Saunders becomes involved in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), participating in counterespionage operations throughout World War II(JSA Secret Files #1 1999). In the modern era, Cyril finds his orphaned granddaughter, Kendra Saunders; he takes her in and begins training her in hand-to-hand combat and other skills. He knows that she has a great destiny as the next Hawkgirl. Cyril joined his friend Wesley Dodds on a trip into China and Tibet and the Himalayas. It is on Mt. Kailash that the two meet with the Gray Man. The two men receive the location of three babies, one of which is to receive the essence of Dr. Fate and so become the newest incarnation of that hero.
