|“||So yeah, ever heard of the Pure Hearts? They're great treasures created by the Ancients... Supposedly really powerful. Folks say that heroes will appear to collect them all and save the world. The source of power in these Pure Hearts? The power of love itself! The love of a parent...The love of the smitten... Great power, indeed. The Ancients researched this power, believing it to be the universe's only salvation. And these Pure Hearts were thus created... The shining embodiment of love itself. Their combined brilliance will negate the destruction born of the Chaos Hearts... we hope.||„|

The Tribe of Ancients or The Ancients are a group of powerful magicians from an advance civilization with an immense knowledge of different dimensions and the concepts in each of them. They created multiple worlds and the Pixls in order to build and cultivate said worlds. They also owned a book known as The Dark Prognosticus. Some time later, a group of individuals have separated themselves from the tribe with the Dark Prognosticus in their possession. This exiled tribe would be known as The Tribe of Darkness.
