(Fantastic Four Unlimited I#2) - Tasked by the Genetics Council, the Seeker led a team of Inhumans (including Aireo, Asmodeus, Falconia, Leonus, Pinyon, Timberius) to find Black Bolt's son, Ahura. The Seeker targeted a crowd, but mistook Franklin Richards for Ahura, and his team swooped down from his Triangle ship, attacking the Fantastic Four to get to Franklin. The Seeker shattered the Invisible Woman's force field and the Seeker ordered Pinius to grab the boy; Pinius flew up into the air, but the Human Torch sent a fiery blast at Pinius, causing the Inhuman to drop Franklin and knocking the flyer out of the fight.
Comments: Created by Roy Thomas (writer), Herb Trimpe (pencils) and Steve Montano (inks).
Presumably he left with the Seeker's team after the skirmish, but he was not definitively shown in panel.
Pinius looks remarkably similar to Avius, a fellow Inhuman. A name change? A (twin) relative? A simple error? Avius had white wings in FF I#129 and similar purple armor; nevertheless, this Inhuman is unmistakably called Pinius by the Seeker.
