History: (Marvel Knights 4 I#20 (fb) – BTS) – Alecto, the daughter of Gorgon, grew up undergoing training by her father, who led the Inhuman military. At age 13, she was exposed to Terrigenesis, which would eventually grant her bat-like wings. Alecto fell in love with Reyno, an Alpha Primitive who served her family, and she discovered that he was developing male characteristics, a mutation given that his race had no gender. Scheduled to undergo secondary Terrigenesis and forbidden to love an Alpha Primitive, Alecto chose to run away with Reyno instead.
(Marvel Knights 4 I#19) – Alecto and Reyno snuck out of their quarters and stole a ship, rushing from Attilan on the moon to Earth, and they landed without authorization at the Baxter Building then asked the Invisible Woman for refuge. As Franklin Richards talked to Alecto and Reyno about Terrigenesis, Gorgon burst in through the wall, grabbing Alecto against her will and shoving Reyno aside, but the duo escaped while Invisible Woman briefly held Gorgon off. They rushed to the roof, where Alecto shocked Reyno by sprouting wings, the effect of her earlier Terrigenesis.
(Marvel Knights 4 I#20) – Alecto took off into the
sky with Reyno but
Franklin Richards grabbed on to Reyno and there was too much weight for
to remain aloft. Refusing to land as she might be apprehended, Alecto
Franklin no choice but to let go and the boy was narrowly saved by Mr.
Fantastic. The Human Torch soon apprehended the two teens, returning
the Baxter Building, where Gorgon was being contained. After an
from Mr. Fantastic, Alecto and Reyno joined the FF, H.E.R.B.I.E. and
for a meeting, where Reyno's gender mutation was revealed. The Inhuman
Family was summoned and they returned Alecto and Reyno to Attilan.
Alecto was soon given secondary Terrigenesis, growing taller. She later appeared flanking the Royal Family during a proclamation. Dressed in red and carrying a spear, she ignored Reyno when he called out to her. Alecto then turned with tears in her eyes and asked Reyno to never speak to her again, as Primitives were beneath her station.
(Marvel Knights 4 I#30 (fb) – BTS) – Alecto served on the imperial guard for a time then she and Reyno chose to run away, forming their own society in the Blue Area of the Moon, where Inhumans and Alpha Primitives could co-mingle. The Royal Family and Gorgon frowned upon fringe societies but chose to let them go ahead.

As the daughter of Gorgon, it is presumed that Alecto's last name is Petragon. Gorgon has been romantically connected to, who may be Alecto's mother. Gorgon has another son, Petras, who is presumed to be Alecto's half-brother but he may be a full-blooded sibling as well.
Alecto would also be related to the rest of the Inhuman family more distantly, with Black Bolt, Maximus, Karnak, Triton, Medusa and Crystal, as well as their parents and relatives being cousins or distant cousins, some removed multiple times.

(Marvel Knights 4 I#20 (fb) – BTS) – A member of the Alpha Primitives, a cloned race of former slaves who had been bred to serve the Inhumans, Reyno's family served the household of Gorgon, the leader of the Inhuman military. Reyno fell in love with Gorgon's teenage daughter, Alecto, who had been forced to undergo Terrigenesis. Reyno discovered he had male characteristics, a mutation from his race, who were bred without gender. When Alecto was scheduled to undergo secondary Terrigenesis, Reyno chose to run away with her.
(Marvel Knights 4 I#19) – Reyno and Alecto stole a ship from Attilan and traveled to Earth, where they sought refuge with the Fantastic Four. After the Invisible Woman accepted them, Reyno and Alecto spoke with the boy Franklin Richards.
