|“||Edenims are different from humans as you know them. They are beings created directly by the hands of God, the image and likeness of the Father. Unlike average humans, Edenims live hundreds and even thousands of years. They are also capable of battling to hunt large animals such as mammoths and saber-toothed tigers. While most Edenim died off before the Flood, their bloodline is combined with the true humans that evolved across the Earth, with most, if not all, present-day humans being descendants of them.||„|

Edenim are ancient primeval humans that are regarded as the earliest and the first known humans to ever set foot on the planet. In truth, they are actually semi-immortals beings created by God or other deties for a range of reasons.
While their name is Edenim, which is from the Garden of Eden, not all of them are Abrahamic or are created by God as this also includes any "human" that was created by the divine, such as Pandora for the Greeks.
Edenims were, more or less, resembled much like how modern humans are these days but according to Odin they were said to be "more impressive" when it came to their physical and mental attributes. Not much else is known about them other than that they were noted to be stronger, more intelligent, powerful and very independent with some not even requiring the need of divine intervention.
Their biology allowed them to conquer diseases with researchers from the Department of Edenim Research stating that the fossil records indicate that there were no genetic disorders, no viruses or cancers and were thus considered to be naturally superior to modern humans. Their intelligence is advanced to where, according to Professor Jackson, they would know things that the history and geography books could only speculate at. They even were purported to have a lifespan that was far more extensive than modern humans as Adam was said to have lived till the age of 930.
As of now, any and all current Edenims are indistinguishable from humans to the point of just being considered humans. This is due to the massive amount of times Edenims have reproduced with normal humans.
In the beginning, the Abrahamic Edenim resided within the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve specifically, and it was revealed that Adam and Eve were not the only humans created by gods barring Lilith and Eve's other sisters. Other humans were created by the deities of polytheistic myth such as Pandora, Ask and Embla, or Wurugag and Waramurungundi, but they resided in their own gardens fashioned by the gods. After the Fall of Man, the resulting event created a dramatic shift in the workings of creation and set the cosmic wheels in motion. The gods, knowing that they too are bound by the ancient laws of the Natural Order, also placed their own creations upon the Earth and saw to it that they develop and grow as well as populate the planet alongside Adam and Eve.
When they expanded out across the world, they established contact and unity with the humans that existed on Earth and so joined them in their newly formed civilizations.
One of the first known empire from the unity resided in the lost continent of Hyperborea and came to be known as the Hyperboreans. Before that was believed to be the continent of Lemuria where they first arrived to Earth.
Myths and Legends
In the Christian Bible and Hebrew Torah, the antediluvian period begins with the fall of the first man and woman, according to Genesis and ends with the destruction of all life on the earth except those saved with Noah in the ark (Noah and his wife, his three sons and their wives). It is said that the antediluvian period lasted for 1,656 years, from Creation (some say the fall of man) at 4,004 BC to the Flood at 2,348 BC. The elements of the narrative include some of the best-known stories in the Bible – the creation, Adam and Eve, and Cain and Abel, followed by the genealogies tracing the descendants of Cain and Seth, the third mentioned son of Adam and Eve.
The Bible speaks of this bygone era as being a time of great wickedness. There were Gibborim (giants) in the earth in those days as well as Nephilim; some Bible translations identify the two as one and the same. The Gibborim were unusually powerful; Genesis calls them "mighty men which were of old, men of renown". The antediluvian period ended when God sent the Flood to wipe out all life except Noah, his family, and the animals they took with them. Nevertheless, the Nephilim (literally meaning 'fallen ones', from the Hebrew root n-f-l 'to fall') reappear much later in the biblical narrative, in Numbers 13:31–33 (where the spies sent forth by Moses report that there were Nephilim or "giants" in the promised land).

- The term Antediluvian can be attributed to not just humans but also other species that are considered to be the earliest of their kind.
