  • Domo[4] - Former Head Technologist at the Temple of Command in Olympia. Domo was extremely dedicated to his work, which involved monitoring all of Olympia's advanced systems. Was responsible for contacting Earth's Eternals when it was time to form the Uni-Mind. Domo was among the Eternals who left Earth in the form of a Uni-Mind.
  • Makkari[4] - Superhumanly fast; Son of Verona and Mara. Speedy and impatient, many Eternals don't take him seriously. In the 1940s, Makkari was the superheroes "Hurricane" and "Mercury." Later he founded the Monster Hunters to fight Kro and joined the First Line as "Major Mercury". In the 2006 series he becomes the emissary of the Dreaming Celestial.
  • Thena[4] - Daughter of Zuras and Cybele. Originally named Azura, but Zuras changed it to seal bond with Olympian gods. Often mistaken for Athena, Athens was built for her. Had twin children in affair with Kro and hid them. Became re-involved with her children, after Dr. Damian tried to kill them. Has sought sanctuary with Heroes for Hire and the High Evolutionary. She also has a fully human son named Joey Eliot.
  • Zuras[4] - Can manipulate energy; Son of Kronos, brother of A'Lars, father of Thena, husband of Cybele. Was first Eternal to form Uni-Mind, and was chosen to lead after Kronos' death. Was mistaken for Zeus, so made pact with Greek gods. Killed when the Celestials defeated Uni-Mind, but continued to exist. Finally died freeing Thena from a Brain-Mine. Spirit still seems to exist, still appears occasionally in Olympia. In the 2006 series, he has been resurrected.
  • Sprite[5] - Has the appearance of a young boy. Adept at manipulating matter. Inspiration for Puck in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Sprite remained behind when Zuras called for Uni-Mind to examine the Celestials' Mothership. Is a TV star in 2006 Eternals series. Killed by Zuras in the final issue.
  • Aginar[6] - A Polar Eternal who disguised himself as an aide to Valkin in the guise of General Vulcanin of the Soviet Military. Doesn't care much for his Olympian Eternal "cousins". Chosen to form the Uni-Mind which has left Earth to seek out a higher meaning for their race.
  • Delphan Brothers[6] - Team of boxers from Olympia who enjoy getting into fights. They have little love for Polar Eternals, and once started a fight with them prior to the Ritual of the Uni-Mind. When Sersi refused to answer summons to Olympia, Domo sent the Delphan Brothers to New York and force her back. She temporarily turned them into armadillos for that.
  • Druig[6] - Son of Valkin, cousin of Ikaris, sometimes known as "Druig of Nightmares". In modern times, Druig served as an agent of the K.G.B. in Russia, enjoying the chance to inflict pain. Currently the ruler of Vorozheika, a fictional former Soviet country.

When Virako was slain, Valkin adopted Ikaris as his son. In the 20th Century, Valkin assumed the alias of "Colonel Vulcanin" in the Soviet Military. Following the death of Zuras, many Eternals turned to Valkin as their leader, even though Thena was next in line. This leadership problem was resolved when Valkin chose to lead most of Earth's Eternals into space as a Uni-Mind.
  • Zarin[6] - Polar Eternal who served as an aide to Valkin in his "Colonel Vulcanin" guise. Zarin also served as Valkin's pilot. He was among the Eternals who left for space in the Uni-Mind

Zuras was the first Eternal to form a Uni-Mind, used it to determine who should become Prime Eternal. Since then, the Prime Eternal alone has the power initiate a Uni-Mind.
