(All-New Inhumans#11 (fb) - BTS) - Not wanting to repeat the mistakes he'd made with his older daughter Alecto, Gorgon tried being a better father to his younger boy, Petras, but he often went off into battle, leaving Petras much of the time.

(Inhumanity#1 (fb) ) - In Attilan, Gorgon took his son Petras, age 9, to the Terrigenesis chamber. Though Petras felt he wasn't ready, Gorgon, with Karnak, encouraged him to go in, and Petras emerged from the mists with a large buffalo-like head. Distressed, he rushed into his father's arms. Just then, Thanos attacked the city, and Petras was the last person to undergo Terrigenesis before the city crashed to Earth.

(Inhumanity#2 (fb) - BTS) - When Attilan crashed to Earth, most of the civilians passed through Eldrac the door and were scattered across the planet. Gorgon was worried when he couldn't find Petras.

(All-New Inhumans#9 (fb) ) - Crystal found Petras in Australia, but he was in severe medical danger. She returned him to Gorgon in Attilan, and Petras entered medical stasis to keep him alive.

(All-New Inhumans#11) - Gorgon visited Petras, who remained in stasis, and confessed his insecurities as a father. Panacea, who had healing powers, agreed to begin working on making Petras better.

(Royals#1) - Gorgon, preparing for a mission in space, said goodbye to Petras, regretting that he wouldn't be there when the boy woke up.

Gorgon once lamented over the loss of his wife, Myrra. It is possible that she is the mother of Petras, or Alecto, or others. Gorgon mourned her in Royals#4.
