The Ancient is an intelligent passive creature exclusively found on Jupiter.

Description

The Ancient is a vaguely humanoid creature, though it's much larger than a Human. It has ribbed appendages which nearly extend the full length of their bodies.
When first meeting an Ancient, it talks to the crew using what appears to be some form of telepathy. It speaks in riddles and seems to have the ability to cause harm to the crew (as hinted in one of the dialogue options).

The Ancients are implied to be the civilization that built the ruins scattered around Europa. The only Ancients in the game are encountered in Jupiter, which can be reached through a portal located inside a massive alien ruin at the center of the Eye of Europa, also implied to be built by the Ancients. According to the carvings in the alien ruins, and the Ancient that talks to the crew on Jupiter, the Ancients started worshipping a creature they call YOH-WEY at some point in the past, which lead to them becoming imprisoned in some sense, "listening to its song for an eternity", causing their civilization to stagnate and eventually wither out.

In-Game

The Ancients swim around Jove during its sleeping stage. Once Jove wakes up, the Ancients will swim away and vanish. Outside of this, they have no other in-game behavior or function.

Combat Strategies

Due to the passive nature of the Ancient, any weapon can be used to kill them. If an Ancient takes any form of damage, they will take 0.5 Internal Damage until they perish. Upon death, they will slowly fade away into nothing.

Attacks

The Ancient has no attacks and is completely passive.

Defense

The Ancient has no notable resistances or weaknesses.
