Gaea In Greek Mythology, the earth, mother of all earth's gods. Gaea has also been the earth goddess of many other religions, including the Egyptians, Native Americans, and the Norse, where she is the mother of Thor. When the First Host of Celestials came to Earth, Gaea guided them to the neanderthal people, upon whom the Celestials created the races of Deviants, Eternals, and men. To safeguard earth from the judgement of the 4th Host, Gaea began a search for the best of earth's people, following the 3rd Host. She was able to gain the aid of many other goddesses across the pantheons. At the time of the 4th Host, she presented the 12 Young Gods to Arishem, and he approved them. Cybele has also been mistaken for Gaea. -Thor#300-301, Uncanny X-Men Annual#13

Galactus Originally Galan, a man from before this universe existed. As the old universe died, its essence bonded with Galan, and after a long period of hibernation, he emerged as Galactus and began devouring worlds to sustain his life. The first of his many heralds was the Silver Surfer, who turned against him when he came to earth. Other heralds have included the Air-Walker, Firelord, the Destroyer, Terrax the Tamer, Nova, Morg, and Red Shift. One of Galactus' greatest foes was Ego, the Living Planet. After one of their battles, Galactus placed a disk upon Ego which propelled him hopelessly through space. Though Galactus' height and armor have caused some to wonder if he bears any connection to the Celestials, there is no proof that he does. However, after Odin first sent Thor to investigate Galactus, he feared that Galactus might be a Celestial, and that contact with him would violate a pact he had made with the 3rd Host. Some have also speculated that if the Celestials may each be the survivor of a previous reality, and that when the universe ceases to exist, Galactus will become the new universe's Celestial. Galactus has recently perished after a bout of addiction to life energies, though it remains to be seen if he is truly dead. -Fantastic Four#48-50, Thor#134, 160-162, 167-169

During the 4th Host, he captured 3 SHIELD Agents who were surveying the City of the Space Gods with his Gather-Rod, and gave them to Ajak to deal with. When they ultimately chose to assault the Celestials, he reduced them to a cube of basic atomic matter. Later during the expedition, he examined Central America. He also captured an airplane to be studied, and brought it to the City of the Space Gods, but the Asgardian Thor rescued it from the City. He also took note of Tyrannus' manipulation of El Dorado's Flame of Life, recognizing it as Deviant technology. During the attack of the Destroyer, it was Gammenon who destroyed the Uni-Mind with a single blast of energy. Gammenon once brought Ship and X-Factor to an alien world, both to examine the data Ship had collected for the Celestials on Earth, and to force X-Factor into aiding the people on the surface. Gammenon, along with many other Celestials, confronted the alien Rejects and Chosen, and were ultimately successful in forcing them to make their own judgements. Gammenon also served with the delegation of Celestials who waged war against the Watchers. -Eternals (v.1)#4,6-7, 18, Thor Annual#7, Thor#283-284, 300, What If (v.1)#23, Incredible Hulk#243, Secret Wars II#5, Uncanny X-Men Annual#13, Fantastic Four Annual#23, X-Factor#43-46, 48-50, Quasar#25, Fantastic Four#400

Ghaur plotted to gain the power of the Dreaming Celestial and challenge the power of the other Celestial Hosts, and to this end, manipulated Kro into recovering the Vial containing the Dreamer's essence. Though Ikaris attempted to stop him, Ghaur successfully gained the Dreamer's powers, but found that the Dreamer had taken over his actions to force him into freeing him from his crypt. Ghaur was killed by the Uni-Mind when it assaulted his Celestial-form. However, Ghaur continued to exist as a cloud of psychic matter in space, and was able to trick the Silver Surfer into re-forming his body. Returning to earth, he forged an alliance with Llyra, and attempted to conquer the planet by forming a pact with Set, but upon releasing a new Serpent Crown, he was killed by the spirit of Naga. Ghaur was later resurrected by his followers and attempted to force a Uni-Mind, but was unsuccessful. At some point, he was slain yet again, and resurrected in the form of a giant, animate, golden statue. In this form, he attempted to create an "Anti-Mind" with which to assault the Celestials, but was defeated by the Heroes For Hire. After's Lemuria's destruction by Apocalypse, his statue-form was recovered by a salvage crew. He has since regained his original physical body, and returned to his title as Priestlord of the Deviant people. Although Kro is the official head of state in Lemuria at present, it is still the priesthood, through Ghaur, who truly rule Lemuria. Recently, Ghaur mated with a Deviant woman, who bore a normal-looking daughter- a Reject- in Wakanda. In his attempt to regain his daughter so that he can slay her, Ghaur declared war against Wakanda, but was ultimately convinced by Everett K. Ross to falsify the child's death, and allow her to remain in the custody of Namor, the Sub-Mariner. -Eternals (v.2)#2, 5, 7-12, Silver Surfer Annual#2, Iron Man Annual#10, Uncanny X-Men Annual#13, Amazing Spider-Man Annual#23, Spectacular Spider-Man Annual#9, Avengers West Coast#52, Avengers Annual#18, New Mutants Annual#5, X-Factor Annual#4, Web of Spider-Man#5, Avengers West Coast Annual#4, Thor Annual#14, Fantastic Four Annual#22, Avengers#370-371, Heroes For Hire#5-7, New Eternals#1, Black Panther (v.3)#26-29
