Elder Races

The Elder races were humanoid races who ruled Earth before the rise of mankind,[1] and may refer to any of the races which ruled or colonized Earth before the rise humanity.[2]

The Elder Races include the Elderspawn and other races of demons,[2] the extraterrestrial star-headed Old Ones,[3] the Elder Race proper (including Tuzun Thune, Thulsa Doom, Demonolater, Kharon, Thuron,[2] and Khalis-Wu),[4] but also Psyklop's race[2] (the Psyklop),[5][6][7] the Deviants, the Gibborim, the Shining Ones (including the being who would become the Architect), the Silent Ones, the Axi-Tun Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the People of the Dust, Starseed's society, Dark Rider's Wizard Race, the races of Grogg, Raptor the Renegade, and many others.[2]

The Ancients, in fact water-breathing Lemurians,[8] were stated to be a "telepathic elder race".[9] Contrary to other elder races, they don't predate humanity.

History

Early years

Long eons ago, before the Age of Man, when the Elder races roamed the world, Oranah was feared before all but the mightiest god-things.[10]

An elder race inhabiting Abombi abandoned the city at its height.[11]

Legacy

The Hellbent are the result of the intermingling of the remains of elder races with early man during pre-history,[12] when those rmnants still shared Earth with early man. They were shunned both by their human and inhuman sires.[13]
