Old Lace's origin is the same as that of her Earth-616's counterpart.
Powers and Abilities
Old Lace is a genetically engineered Deinonychus from the 87th Century commissioned by the Yorkes using their 4-D Time Portico to protect Gert in case of their deaths. Old Lace has the following abilities:
- Telepathic and Empathic Link: Old Lace is telepathically and empathically linked to Gertrude Yorkes. This empathic bond between Old Lace and Gertrude allows for mental communication. Additionally, Old Lace is fiercely loyal to Gert, and has been programed not to harm any member of the Yorkes immediate family. Old Lace can feel the emotions of her owner, such as sadness when Karolina left, and anger when Nico and Chase's kiss was revealed. However, Gert and Old Lace also share the pain any injuries they other sustains. Later the link was psychically pasted onto Chase Stein just before Gert's death.
Equipment: None known.

- No special notes.
- Gert's codename "Arsenic" and the name of her pet dinosaur "Old Lace" were chosen as a reference to the 1944 dark comedy Arsenic and Old Lace directed by Frank Capra. Based on the play of the same name, the film is about a man that learns on his wedding day that bride-to-be has homicidal aunts and a family history of insanity.
- Old Lace was originally mistaken as a Velociraptor, when she is in fact seemingly a Deinonychus. This misunderstanding is likely a reference to the 1993 film Jurassic Park. Whereas Velociraptors are generally a small breed of dinosaur, the film depicts them as a larger/human-sized species more closely resembling the Velociraptor's distant genetic cousins, the Deinonychus or the Utahraptor.
