Dr. Abner Polk is an appraiser of antiquities.
Dr. Abner Polk was hired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art to appraise a shipment of recently acquired antiquities from the Mediterranean. One morning, he arrived at the museum and met Peter Venkman and Ray Stantz. Peter handed him a court order telling him to grant them custody of a tablet artifact from the shipment. Polk didn't understand what was going on nor did he know any of the terminology in the court order. Ray informed him he had a potentially powerful psychokinetically charged artifact on the premises. They went into another room. Ray saw the tablet and confirmed it was what they were looking for. Polk insisted they couldn't have it and it wasn't even documented yet. Ray tried to explain what was going on, they had to make sure there wasn't any god-like being planning on using the tablet to as a gateway to their plane of existence. Peter warned Polk that Ray was only going to talk faster and he didn't need that. Peter assured him they were doing him a favor because the last time there was an artifact like it in a museum, it did not go well for the staff.
