The Council is a secretive organization comprised of metahumans, who call themselves “Elders.” They seek to balance the world by masterminding world affairs through subtle and conspiratorial means. Members of the Council believe strongly in their own moral authority, and cede power neither to the World Alliance, nor the ULH. The influence of the Council is widespread, and many events can be directly tied to the Elders’ machinations. While the government internally acknowledges the existence of the Council, it has yet to identify its members. The Agents of Truth have repeatedly tried to shed light on the secret society, but each attempt has failed to permeate its mystery.
