History

Sprite was an Eternal created by the Celestials in the World Forge. Over the course of her existence she aided the birth of many Celestials by protecting the native populations of their planet from Deviants until the Celestial could hatch from the planet. Like most other Eternals, she had her memories reset and stored in between the missions, believing herself to be from the planet called Olympia.

7,000 years ago Sersi was one of the ten Eternals assigned by Arishem to Earth, alongside Ajak, Kingo, Sersi, Phastos, Makkari, Druig, Gilgamesh, Thena and Ikaris whom she developed an interest in. Sprite was the only one of the ten to have a physical body of a child, an age she was stuck in due to her Eternal nature. The Eternals settled in the ancient Babylon, where Sprite became a storyteller, using her illusion-casting skills to tell stories to the humans. After six and a half thousand years, the last Deviants on Earth were believed to be destroyed and Ajak told the others that their mission was over and to go their own ways and live lives among the Humans. Sprite had to move around much more often than the others, as her lack of aging became apparent after only a few years while her fellow Eternals only had to do it every few decades.

Most recently, Sprite used to live with Kingo util he abandoned her in London. She then came to live with Sersi, who acted as Sprite's legal guardian. One night, Sprite, Sersi and Sersi's human boyfriend Dane Whitman were attacked by a Deviant who was only driven away by the arrival Ikaris. Realizing that their mission was not over, Sprite and Sersi joined Ikaris in locating the others, soon finding Ajak killed by Deviants, which devastated Sprite. The group was joined by Kingo in India and together they went to visit Gilgamesh and Thena in Australia. There, Sersi first talked to Arishem, who revealed to her the true origin of the Eternals and the Deviants and that their true role was preparing the worlds to be destroyed in the Emergence of new Celestials, which would soon be the case with Tiamut.

Seeking for a way to stop the end of the world, the Eternals went to see Druig in the Amazon, where an attack by Deviants left Gilgamesh killed. After the remaining Eternals returned to the Domo and reunited with Makkari, Ikaris was revealed as the one behind Ajak's death, being loyal to Arishem and their cause of awakening Tiamut. Kingo believed in the same cause but refused to fight the others and left, while Sprite chose to follow Ikaris out of the feelings that she had for him. The remaining five Eternals planned to form the Uni-Mind and have Druig put Tiamut back to sleep, but this attempt was stopped violently by Ikaris, who punched Druig into a mountain and declared him dead. Sersi attempted to stop the Emergence by herself and Sprite sought to stop her, conjuring an illusion of Ajak to distract Sersi and stab her in the back. Druig turned out to be alive and came to Sersi's help, knocking Sprite out. The Eternals formed the Uni-Mind which empowered Sersi and enabled her to to turn Tiamut to stone before he could fully awake. His loyalties shattered between the mission and his love for Sersi, Ikaris departed the planet and flew into the Sun, seemingly killing himself. With what was left of the Uni-Mind's power, Sersi granted Sprite's wishes and turned her into a Human, allowing Sprite to finally grow up and age.

Afterwards, Druig, Makkari and Thena departed the planet to look for other Eternals while Sersi, Phastos and Kingo planned to resume their lives among the Humans. Sersi returned to Dane, who confessed his love for her. However, they were abducted by Arishem, who planned to use their memories to judge whether humanity was truly worth saving over the life of a Celestial.[1]
