Savitar is one of many time remnants of the original Barry Allen/The Flash from a possible future in the year 2020 or 2021 in the Post-Flashpoint timeline, created to help him fight his enemy Savitar in vengeance for killing their fiancee Iris West. However the prime Barry failed to defeat Savitar who slaughtered all the time remnants except for this one. After surviving his encounter Barry was shunned by his prime self, Joe, Wally and Cisco for not being the "true Barry Allen", and was disregarded as a time aberration and a "disposable hero". Grief stricken from Iris' death and isolated from his family and friends Barry was driven insane and sought to end his pain, coming to a realization that "God feels no pain" and aspired to become one.
Travelling through time and space Barry began physically augmenting his speed to unimaginable levels that surpassed that of his prime self. However he became so fast that prolonged running would start to rip his body apart and one of these instances left a large scar on the side of his face. Barry then designed a suit of armor to contain the energy released when he runs and protect himself from being ripped apart, drawing inspiration from Savitar's armor. After this Barry came to the realization that Savitar was in fact his own future self and accepted his destiny, renaming himself "Savitar" after the Hindu God of Motion. He also acquired the Philosopher's stone an object originating from the Speed Force capable of creating metahumans. Savitar then started travelling through the Multiverse and on each Earth traveled back to ancient times to spread the myth that he was the first speedster. Before arriving on each Earth he would possess somebody and under the alias "Alchemy" would rally worshipers and would seek out and bestow metahuman powers upon anyone willing to serve him, then laying waste to each Earth. Additionally he any speedster he believed could be a challenge to him he would seek out and kill. Eventually Savitar was hailed as the "God of Speed" and the "ruler" of the Speed Force. He became infamous among other veteran speedsters such as Jay Garrick/The Flash.
After successfully building his reputation as a god Savitar then traveled back to 2020 to seek revenge on his prime self for his neglect and challenged him. It was during this fight that Flash created the time remnants that included Savitar's younger self. While slaughtering the rest of them Savitar spared his younger self so he could continue the loop. However much to Savitar's surprise Flash used a device called the Speed Force bazooka that trapped him within a prison in the Speed Force itself, where Savitar relived his worst memory over and over again. After spending centuries there losing his mind Savitar sought to escape and ensure the final stage of ensuring his existence, the death of Iris West. Through the Speed Fore Savitar communicated with Julian Albert in the year 2012 in the form of his dead sister Emma, telling him about the stone and claiming that it could reunite them. When Julian found it in India however Savitar was able to establish a link with Julian and would periodically possess him, making him the new Alchemy of Earth-1. However due to being in the Speed Force Savitar could only possess Julian for a limited time before the Speed Force pulled him back in. His imprisonment also made him invisible to non-speedsters though it didn't stop him being able to physically interact with others.
