Caregiver is a member of the Elders of the Universe
; they are sole survivors of long dead races whose dedication to certain life sustaining goals granted them immortality. Over her expanded lifespan she has honed her nurturing skills to immeasurable levels. Caregiver was once summoned by fellow Elder Contemplator (Thath Ki) to assist the embryonic cosmic being Origin
from eminent death after the Soul-Eater
damaged the embryonic sac of the young fetus. The elders sealed the ruptured embryonic sac and soothed Origin as it healed. Sometime later the cosmic Avenger
, Quasar was seemingly destroyed by the Ultimate Nullifier
, however he was miraculously transported to the new born Origin by his Quantum Bands. This led a group of Elders, including the Explorer, Obliterator
, and Possessor
(Kamo Tharnn), and an unnamed Skrull posing as the Contemplator, to try to claim the cosmic infant or the Quantum Bands. Caregiver bypassed her brethren including the Judicator, and pushed Quasar into Origin's embryonic sac, saving him from dying outer space as his energy reserves faded and granting him access to the bands. The Judicator remanded Origin to Caregiver. Shortly thereafter, Quasar petitioned Caregiver to save his mother, Lisa Vaughn, from breast cancer, but Caregiver refused, stating Lisa had no cosmological significance and was therefore outside her sphere of influence.
