The Ancients were mystical beings in Skylanders who created the Core of Light before they mysteriously vanished. It was said that the Ancients "were wise beyond imagination, but lazy beyond measure", a quote from the Book of Paper. The book further noted that the Ancients designed amazing technology and built many incredible machines. However, long naps often took priority. They claimed the naps were a necessary part of the creative process and that personal hygiene was a mere distraction.
It was the Ancients who first released The Darkness into Skylands when they were doing foolish experiments with magic. They have been trying to make amends ever since and built the Core of Light to repel the evil force.
