The Aphelion are a mysterious race of aliens that were encountered by the Awoken.
Very little information is given on the Aphelion only that they are perhaps glowing radioactive creatures.
The Aphelion were encountered by the Awoken and Cabal. Many of these encounters report they are malevolent beings said to have "the power to devastate whole worlds in the blink of an eye"
