I'm quite sure that it refers to people/beings who don't age, i.e. are immortal.

It could perhaps also refer to those who've been there ever since the founding of the city, as it's eternal.

P.S. What book is this? Reads like something right up my alley.

Edit: Read the linked article, now I bet that it refers to the various buildings, and other architectural fancies.

  • It's not particularly people / beings. The actual examples given (though presumably of new kids on the block, not "the timeless") aren't even "alive". Although "the poor" always means "poor people", the cited use of "the timeless" refers to anything (people OR things) that aren't affected by the passage time and/or have been around since the beginning of time.
