The Originators is the colloquial name given to the survivors of the Catacendre on Scadrial.

Almost a fifth of the Originators were Terris.[1]

During Sazed's ascension, he undid a lot of the changes that the Lord Ruler made to the genetics of the various peoples of the Final Empire. The survivors presumably had their bodies rewritten on the fly to remove differences between nobles, skaa and the Terris peoples.[Citation needed] This consigned these differences to historical record.[2]

MeLaan considered the originators to be "big-city people".[3]
