Older than Angels, Demons and Humans, "Old Ones" is the generic name for those races and beings that predate the Three Kingdoms.

The most important Old Ones in the series are the Charred Council and the Makers.

The Charred Council seeks to maintain the Balance between the First and Second Kingdoms under the belief that any great power, unopposed, would bring destruction to all Creation. To do so they have drafted the last four Nephilim to serve as the enforcers of their Law and to bring about judgment at the Endwar, hence their moniker "The Horsemen of the Apocalypse". They are the only ones able to obtain and sustain balance between the two sides in the war.

The Makers are beings older than even the Charred Council. They are the creators of entire worlds, but their Realm has been overtaken by Corruption.
