The original, primordial beings of the Tellurian. Mages believe that souls are fragments of these mysterious shattered beings.
Some Mage believe the universe was once unified in a primordial state known as Prime. Prime engendered the Pure Ones, the mythical inhabitants who ruled over this early state of reality. It is suggested that they created the planets, life, and even humanity.
