Shir Ydrn Talonis, or "Talon", was a sentient Raptor Mechanoid built by the Shi'ar centuries ago. Talon first encountered Darkhawk (Chris Powell) when he crashed into Chris's backyard while on the run from a Hunter Drone that he claimed was sent by those who opposed the work and goals of the Fraternity of Raptors.
Talon's Amulet was found in space by Skrull Commander H'jke Jeeku, one the Skrull warriors who took part in the Skrull Invasion of Earth. After their defeat Commander Jeeku led his fleet to refuge in the Aranko Nebula. The fleet however was intercepted by the Inhumans and were decimated by Black Bolt's deadly scream. Commander Jeeku was the sole survivor. Moments before his death, he saw a bizarre crystal. Believing his mind was playing tricks on him, he approached this mysterious light, but as soon as he touched it, he was absorbed by the crystal.
