The Aeons are an ancient alien race of benevolent, ethereal beings that hail from the planet called Zalvadal; a world of vast, beautiful gardens and tranquility that contains all of the sacred knowledge in the cosmos. They were the very first extraterrestrials to evolve into higher beings of mighty power. The very source of all their strength is a mighty crystallized artifact called the Sol Star, containing the very essence of power and life itself. Once hidden away, the entire world turned pure evil and corrupted the Aeons as well. When April had restored the world to its former state and splendor, by placing the mystical Sol Star on its rightful place, the grateful Aeons gladly gave her a small fragment of it, assuring her that it would grant her luck and great power. However, they may not have been aware of how the Sol Star fragment was gradually corrupting April to the point of insanity. Among the known Aeons are:

In the first half of the fourth season, they replace the Kraang and the Foot Clan as one of the main villains in the series. With the exception of Captain Mozar, all the Triceratons introduced so far have names that start with Z. Among the known Triceratons are:
