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.
Sometimes the head of the Council That Was Seven has to be discreet.
The father of the Council That Was Seven?
The Council had been on the verge of splitting for years, severing the effectiveness of their ability to combat Darkyn's demons.
"You and I have always put the Council and our mission first," Andre reminded him.
"He kept the Council focused on defending humanity and not killing each other," Kris replied.
Shortly after nine o'clock that evening, Weyrother drove with his plans to Kutuzov's quarters where the council of war was to be held.
The three eldest sons on the Council were dead.
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.
We're watching, but it's not easy balancing the Council, demons and a pregnant mate.
Each of the brothers on the Council was gifted in some way.
We're managed by a council that very poorly oversees Immortal activities in the mortal world and fights demons to keep the underworld dwellers from destroying the human world.
The disaster that remained of the Immortal society and its Council was evidence.
Gabe distrusted the Ancient father of the Council as much as he did Darkyn.
Gabriel turned the pages of the Oracle's book, watching as words scribbled themselves across the parchment, updating a chain of events that changed with every decision made by the Council That Was Seven.
That it emerged now, when the Council was on the verge of disintegrating, couldn't be a coincidence.
"You shouldn't go alone to the Council meeting," Jade warned.
He was a pacifist, though, and viewed his position on the Council as balancing out the outwardly aggressive predators.
Andre was no threat to the others yet had a full vote on everything the Council did.
Kris took it and they walked through the shadow world through the portal leading to the Sanctuary where the Council meetings took place.
My brother, Andre, was the mediator on the Council That Was Seven on which my brothers sat.
The brothers on the Council were looking for any excuse to expel or kill him, and Andre was his only advocate.
I never expected to meet one of the Council That Was Seven, let alone have the honor of hosting you.
Everyone at headquarters was still under the spell of the day's council, at which the party of the young had triumphed.
In the third circle, Naryshkin was speaking of the meeting of the Austrian Council of War at which Suvorov crowed like a cock in reply to the nonsense talked by the Austrian generals.
Baron Firhoff was talking to him about the first sitting of the Council of State to be held next day.
He had just heard particulars of that morning's sitting of the Council of State opened by the Emperor, and he spoke of it enthusiastically.
The Sovereign plainly said that the Council and Senate are estates of the realm, he said that the government must rest not on authority but on secure bases.
Speranski, wearing a gray swallow-tail coat with a star on the breast, and evidently still the same waistcoat and high white stock he had worn at the meeting of the Council of State, stood at the table with a beaming countenance.
Speranski related how at the Council that morning a deaf dignitary, when asked his opinion, replied that he thought so too.
Another who wished to gain some advantage would attract the Emperor's attention by loudly advocating the very thing the Emperor had hinted at the day before, and would dispute and shout at the council, beating his breast and challenging those who did not agree with him to duels, thereby proving that he was prepared to sacrifice himself for the common good.
