He was so frustrated at seeing his fellow Eternals do adult things, and always being considered a child, that he masterminded the lobotomized resurrection of all of his peers in order to have access to the power of the Sleeping Celestial and become a human boy. [[spoiler: It worked. He got caught. He was killed. [[TearJerker We cried.]]]]

->''[[ILoveYouVampireSon I never should have done this to Ringley]]; he'd have been better off dying in his youth than spending eternity in it. It's had a damaging effect on him.
