The Ancients is an umbrella term for a large group of Terran races that made up the bulk of Terra's civilization. However, the Ancients are actually not native (i.e. alien) to Terra, if the Sarkaz's claims that they are among the "outsiders" accompanying the "First Civilization" is to be believed.[1][2]

While the Ancients' origin remains a mystery, Trevor Friston the Preserver refers to them as "humanoid creatures",[note 1] implying that Ancients are animals brought by the First Civilization into Terra that underwent neo-Darwinian evolution into their current form.[3] This is likely to be the case, as Mephisto somehow regressed into an avian monster that the Doctor, a First Civilization survivor, recognized[4] after using the Sarcophagus.
