Zephiel more commonly known to mortals as John Talbot is a Gallian. He is the God of the Forge and he has possibly had more direct contact with humans than any other Gallian after their race left Earth in it's ancient history.
Zephiel helped Humans and other alien races build up ancient civilizations teaching his skills of crafting, smithing, and engineering by using magic to disguise himself as a mortal and he'd live among mortals making grand "discoveries" and letting them spread out.
Zephiel's most notable time on Earth began prior to World War 1. He founded Talbot Enterprises and built it up slowly until World War 2 where it became a major producer of arms and vehicles for the US Military and even helped with the Manhattan project. Zephiel would then act as all of his "descendants" in order to keep up the illusion that Talbot Enterprises was being inherited by sons of the current CEO.
In modern times he commanded the company and it was possibly the most powerful on the planet. He intended to rule the Earth but was foiled in his plans after the Latverian War and his take over of Hydra. He allowed himself to be captured and later shot into space by the US Government.
Zephiel found himself on another Earth-like world known as Kora. He overtook the monarchy there and ruled it with an iron first while simultaneously building the Koratin up into a powerful industrial and military empire within their sector of the galaxy. He sought vengeance against Earth and it's heroes for his failure to conquer it in the past.
It was by sheer luck or maybe fate itself that James Miller who had become The Sentinel stumbled upon Kora during his journey through space. Zephiel battled Sentinel and proved to be strong enough to defeat him. Zephiel hunted down Sentinel and the Koratin still resisting his rule but Sentinel sent his allies to Earth to get help.
The Guardians arrived and tipped the tide of battle in the resistance's favor and drove Zephiel from Kora. Zephiel now enraged at a second failure went on to forge the mighty Crimson Empire which has expanded through the cosmos coming into conflict with various forces like the Shi'Ar Empire, The Nova Corps, and the Universal Church of Truth. Zephiel plans on forging the greatest empire the Universe has ever seen since the days when the Gallians themselves ruled the cosmos.
