Ancients or The Ancients, also known as Precursors, were Alterans who lived alongside their Scryer brothers and sisters and eventually traveled among the galaxy and seeded it with life. They are one of the most advanced races known to have existed, having evolved for millions of years prior to the present day and reaching their level of technology long before humanity evolved on Earth. They are best known as the caretakers of the galaxy; creaters of the Iconias, Humanity, and perhaps even the Vasari.
It is not known if they referred to themselves as Ancients while they were living on Earth several million years ago. It is likely that they began to use that name after they returned from each slunber period, as they would be considered Ancient to any living creature.
Tens of millions of years ago, the Alterans, the first evolution of humanity in galaxies, lived together as one society on an evolutionary path to Ascension on the Alteran Homeworld. A split then occurred among the Alterans, dividing them into two factions: the Ancients (who still called themselves the Alterans), who were more secular and science-oriented, and the Scryers, who became more religious and militarist.
Eventually, after the constant reminder of Humanity being a copy of themselves; a mere humilation thought that the Scions constructed them to be mirriors of themselves. the Scryers became so extreme in their beliefs that they tried to wipe out the Scions. The Ancients' numbers were too few, and they were ultimately forced to hide their ways. Though they faced a war of attrition, one they ultimately believed that they could not win. To avoid genocide, the Ancients Scions built a ship and left for parts unknown, while the Scryers remained and butchered much of the Scion Conclave and ruled as the 'True' Power of the Galaxy.
As being the pro creators of Humanity; and their own classification as proto-humans and the first form of humanity in the known galaxy; they look fairly similar to any average human with the only exception of their seemly confusing and lengthen heighten understand of the stars and technology. It is unknown if any currently exist within the human population of Primordia or elsewhere in the galaxy.
While the Scryers were the Warriors, the Scions were the caretenders for the galaxy, but what can be recovered or otherwise assumed was that the Scions were responsible of seeding the galaxy with new life while the Scryers were held responible for cleansing the galaxy of any race that proved to be a threat to them both collectively. Nobody in galactic history has seen one of these ascendant begins and lived to tell the tale; hence they are only rumored to be myth and legends in galactic civilizations of the present
