The Originators is the colloquial name given to the survivors of the Catacendre on Scadrial. They either hid in Lord Ruler's storage caches or other underground caverns to survive the end of the old world.
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. This consigned these differences to the historical record.
