Alpha Primitives were created four thousand years ago by Inhuman genetist Avadar, who had convinced the governing Genetist Council of the need of a race of sub-human servants to free their species, Inhumans, of any physical work. Thus, Avadar reasoned, all the species could search for knowledge and illumination.
In only a decade, the first five hundred Alpha Primitives were created. They began providing support to the city of Attilan in manufacturing, plumbing, drainage, food processing and more. They worked for eighteen hours a day, sleeping the other six, and having no need for culture or leisure. They understood human language in a similar way a six-year-old Human child would. They had a life expectancy of fourty-two years. Being non-sexual beings, their only chance for reproduction is through cloning. Due to this, all the Alpha Primitives are exactly equal.
Since then, and for all the successive millenia, the Alpha Primitives have been working without any complaint. Occassionally, some unethical Inhumans have performed illegal experiments on them, specially on the field of genetics.
Recently, Maximus performed an experiment including three Alpha Primitives and a great amount of mutogenic Terrigen Mist. They become energy globes with a collective consciousness, known as the Trykon. The Trykon helped Maximus with his plan to get the crown of his brother, Black Bolt, and then in exiling the rest of the Royal Family of Inhumans. However, these beings were eventually defeated and banished to the Negative Zone.
Maximus performed a second experiment with Alpha Primitives: using a device to syphon psychic energy, he attempted to give life to a synthetic giant body. The psychic energy Maximus harnessed was formed from the guilt modern Inhumans felt for having a slave species. The giant humanoid would become Omega, the Ultimate Alpha. However, the Inhumans decided to end their "open war" against their own rebel workers, and Omega became lifeless again.
Due to the "Omega Incident", the Inhumans decided to free the Alpha Primitives so that they could live as they wish on the sub-city under Attilan. Alpha Primitives were completely unfamiliar with leisure and freedom, and most of them continued with their previous task. Some Inhuman missionaries have gone to Alpha Primitive ghettos to instruct them.
Currently the cloning of Alpha Primitives is strictly forbidden, which is reducing their number faster than many would have believed. As the Alpha Primitives are or have been a slave species for the Inhumans, the United Nations has repeteadly rejected the admission of Attilan to their member states.
Kree Attacks Attilan
At night in attilan a bell rings for the alpha primitives to start working. When the Kree attacked they were not found. They stayed under ground. Here the machine stop which they call the mother machine. Another Inhuman came and told them the machine is resting and not to make any noise. They attack the Shiar by the orders of Maximus. But they are then defeated as soon as it happened.
