"There are traitors on the council," Damian started.
The quarterly council meeting is tonight.
You'll get to meet all my council members.
He was on the Council until shortly after I died-dead, after which he betrayed the Immortals to work for the Dark One, Darkyn's predecessor.
He hadn't wanted to believe one of his sons betrayed the rest of the Council, though he wasn't exactly surprised, either.
Not many people thought differently of the first Ancient Immortal, who had led the Council with six of his sons for many years before being killed.
Gabriel knew the secrets of all the brothers on the Council; there were things people told Death that they never revealed to anyone else.
Each of the Council members had a unique gift.
It had been where Wynn, the father of all the Immortals on the Council, had lain for hundreds of years before being dragged out by Sasha, the son who betrayed them all to Darkyn.
The events he spoke of occurred just a few months before, when Darkyn was attacking the Immortals and before Rhyn took over the Council That Was Seven.
We're watching, but it's not easy balancing the Council, demons and a pregnant mate.
Like all the brothers on the Council That Was Seven, he had the same father and a different mother.
The Council is a mess.
The disaster that remained of the Immortal society and its Council was evidence.
Do they hold the Council together?
Gabe distrusted the Ancient father of the Council as much as he did Darkyn.
Iliana, we have a Council meeting to attend in a couple of hours.
Kris, the Council will need some sort of proof that this isn't another ploy by one of you to wipe out the others.
"You and I have always put the Council and our mission first," Andre reminded him.
You will meet the Council this evening.
He and Sasha betrayed the Council and humanity long ago.
He was the glue that bound the Council That Was Seven.
He.d come to keep an eye on her and, allegedly, to help his brothers on the Council, though not even he believed he had a decent bone in his body.
Each of the Council That Was Seven was represented, dutifully overlooking their father.s corpse.
The Governor and his Council faintly remember the pond, for they went a-fishing there when they were boys; but now they are too old and dignified to go a-fishing, and so they know it no more forever.
Listening to Bilibin he was already imagining how on reaching the army he would give an opinion at the war council which would be the only one that could save the army, and how he alone would be entrusted with the executing of the plan.
But they heard him at the council of war and will hear him when he talks sense, but to temporize and wait for something now when Bonaparte fears nothing so much as a general battle is impossible.
"There will be a council of war at Kutuzov's tonight, though; you can say all this there," remarked Dolgorukov.
Weyrother, who was in full control of the proposed battle, by his eagerness and briskness presented a marked contrast to the dissatisfied and drowsy Kutuzov, who reluctantly played the part of chairman and president of the council of war.
Prince Andrew came in to inform the commander-in-chief of this and, availing himself of permission previously given him by Kutuzov to be present at the council, he remained in the room.
The day after the council at Malo-Yaroslavets Napoleon rode out early in the morning amid the lines of his army with his suite of marshals and an escort, on the pretext of inspecting the army and the scene of the previous and of the impending battle.
