Valkin Polar Eternal, father of Druig, brother of Virako, uncle of Ikaris. Valkin is known by some as the "All-Father", and served as the leader of the Polar Eternals. Valkin witnessed the destruction of the Dreaming Celestial, and constructed the Pyramid of the Winds to contain the Vial and "the Weapon", and gave instructions to Ikaris to always guard them. Before the 3rd Host, Valkin met and befriended Thor, and joined him in battle against Dromedan. When Virako was slain as as result, Valkin adopted Ikaris as his son. Just as the 3rd Host arrived, Valkin removed Thor's memories of the Eternals, to keep him from interfering in the Celestials' affairs.
