Ajak Polar Eternal born to Rakar and Amaa, and brother of Arex. With Arex, they were known in Greece as Ajax the Greater and Ajax the Lesser. 2500 years ago, he was among the band of Eternals who fought Kro's forces in Babylon. The Aztecs believed Ajak to be their god Quetzlecoatl, and the Incas worshipped him as Tecumotzin, Lord of Flight. He wore his Incan uniform more often than any other. Immediately before the coming of the Third Host, Ajak met the Norse god Thor, and fought alongside him against Dromedan. In the time of the 3rd Host, Ajak served as their communicator, acting as their voice to the people of earth. When Odin, Vishnu and Zeus challenged the Celestials, Ajak warned them that any retaliation would result in them destroying the paths that connect their home dimensions to earth. Alongside Zuras, Ajak arranged the flight plan that the Celestials used to leave earth, and then put himself and his work unit into storage as atoms within the City of the Space Gods, to await their eventual return.

When the 4th Host arrived, Ikaris awoke Ajak and his crew, and they once more served as communicators. Ajak befriended Dr. Daniel Damian, and let him live in the City. He had another encounter with Thor when Thor came to the City, intending to free a airplane the Celestials had captured. Ajak opposed him, but Thor won their battle. When Zuras called for the Uni-Mind, Ajak left the City, and ultimately found himself battling Zeus, who saw the Eternals as the Celestials' pawns. Ajak was also a part of the Uni-Mind that joined Odin in his assault on the City of the Space Gods. Presumably, Ajak only did so because Zuras commanded. Following the 4th Host's departure, Ajak was among the Eternals captured by Brother Tode in his plan to drain their immortality, but he was set free by Iron Man IV. When the Eternals chose to travel to outer space as a Uni-Mind, Ajak joined them, but eventually, he returned to earth and resumed his watch over the City of the Space Gods alongside Dr. Damian. However, when Dr. Damian's daughter was slain by the Deviants, he went mad, and used Celestial technology to transform Ajak into a monster, and sent him out to slay the twin children of Thena and Kro. Along the way, Ajak slew many sets of twins, unable to find the two Damian wanted. After the Eternals restored Ajak to his true form, he was so grief-stricken that he chose to disintegrate himself, along with Dr. Damian. -Eternals (v.1)#2-4, 7, 12, Thor Annual#7, Thor#284, 291, 300-301, Iron Man Annual#6, Avengers#248, Eternals: The Herod Factor

Following the death of their father, A'Lars and Zuras held the first Uni-Mind to determine which of them would rule the Eternals of Earth. Though A'Lars was well loved, Zuras had the people's favour. Knowing that remaining on earth would spread disorder, A'Lars exiled himself to the moon of Titan, where he found Sui-San, the sole survivor of the exiled followers of Uranos.

However, he was interrupted by the attack of Odin and the Eternals, and nearly judged against the Earth's favour, until Gaea offered the 12 "Young Gods" to him. He ultimately chose in Earth's favour, and took the Young Gods with him when the 4th Host left Earth. He was also among the Celestial Host that judged against the planet Pangoria for 50 years, and directed Exitar to re-shape that world. At another alien planet Arishem judged, he was assaulted by members of X-Factor, who used the power of the Phoenix to destroy his right hand, making him unable to pronounce judgement. Ultimately, Arishem did not pass judgement on this world, because his true purpose had been to force its inhabitants to judge themselves.
