The eight ancient civilisations - the four main ones(Ancient Alvaros, Ancient Karens, Ancient Ashleys and Ancient Nikitas), plus the four civilisations that split from the others - Ancient Jeremies(from the Ancient Alvaros), Ancient Sabians(from the Ancient Karens), Ancient Cyrils(from the Ancient Ashleys) and Ancient Steavers(from the Ancient Nikitas). Only 8 people still survive today from these civilisations, and strangely, all of them have the name that was used to refer to their original civilisation. These 8 civilisations existed long before dinosaurs - except the Ancient Karens(and therefore also the Ancient Sabians), they all came from other planets. The Ancient Karens were the first people on earth.
The Ancient Steavers, Ancient Nikitas and Ancient Karens are the best.
A highly advanced race of humans that lived on Earth millions of years before our evolution (of their doing) that built the massive Stargate network in our galaxy before either ascending or leaving in their flying city (Atlantis).
The Ancients would say: "If you immediately know the candlelight is fire, the meal was cooked long ago."
