Long ago, before Sasha broke from the Council, he had stayed in a corner chamber overlooking the forest.
He was, but he.s prepping for the Council meeting.
Rhyn, the rest of the Council is meeting now in the conference room off my chambers.
Unfortunately, you are a Council member.
She looked like Lilith, the woman Rhyn killed when he discovered she.d plotted with the Dark One to kill the Council.
He wasn.t sure what they expected of him; he.d never been included in any Council meeting.
I vote the Council split.
The Council is no more.
No one but Sasha and me left in your Council, and I doubt I was ever really a part of it.
The Council meeting was a bust, and there was more tension in the air than he could understand.
Sasha needs to fry, and the Council needs to remain intact, or all Immortals die.
Now, you can send your soldiers to the castle where the demons are staging an attack, and rejoin the Council, or I can bury you here in your front yard.
If nothing else, the father of the Council would never again be found.

The first to betray the Council and serve the Dark One?
The only to betray the council and serve the Dark One!

I.m sworn to protect Toby, and I.ve done my duty in protecting Sasha, who is also my brother, according to the Code and the oaths I swore to my father and the Council!

Jetr, the only Council member he trusted, had been an ally for three generations of his family without appearing to age.
That time passed with the suffering of his people and the ability of the Council to coerce all his allies but one to leave his side.
He had to repay the odious debt to the Council.
And if you do this, the Council will leave you alone.
The Council wants nothing to do with them and views the presence of your father's betrayer and your people on the planet as a sign the Yirkin are willing to share your planet rather than take it over.
I'll do it, Jetr, for you, not the Council.
You swear the Council will consider my debt to them repaid? he asked.

Jetr was one of the only champions A'Ran had on the Council.
And the Council will help you build allies, Jetr said.
It was mid-afternoon already, another day wasted with the Council rather than concentrating on preparing for battle.
Part of him knew the Council was stalling him for that reason, though whether they did so to hinder his efforts or to maintain the appearance of their power over him, he wasn't sure.
You're taking a break from the Council?
It's been quiet due to the cease-fire called by the Council, he explained.
They nearly reached the women's wing when the strange little Council member with white eyes called out to her.
There was always the Council, and the only ally A'Ran still had.
Assistance might come from their direction, but any favor from the Council would cost him dearly in another way.
The Council awaits you.
He carried it with him to the long, pointless Council meeting, to his afternoon sparring session with Jetr, to the banquet and introduction of his nishani to the clan leaders.
He suspected the Council members knew more and that this night of relative peace was the last he would know for a very long time.
I met all your Council members.
The Council would have left at dawn with A'Ran.
The Council split on sanctioning me, and those whose support Jetr swayed for me are sending their armies to battle.
He'd waited too long for the Council to support him instead of returning to the planet that needed him.
They'd been right to use force over reason with the Council, a lesson he'd learned almost too late.
You're my only true ally of any influence with the Council.
The Council will want to be involved, even if this becomes an intra-galaxy war.
Let us end it once and for all, not with the Council manipulating each of us for its benefit!
The force of the Council will be at your door if you touch Qatwal.
I want my planet back, Jetr, and the Council has done nothing in all these sun-cycles but impede me.
I have some work to do to keep the Council out of your way.
The Council can't talk any sense into A'Ran, and they're amassing this ginormous army to destroy him.
Romas said I was crazy with hormones, but I spoke to someone on the Council who thought it was a good idea.
She was surprised to recognize the Council members, from tall, thin Opal to the Council members whose names she'd never learned.
Nervous, uneasy, she made her way down the wall toward the Council members, who held court with themselves.
She stopped within full view of Jetr and waited, not wanting to draw the attention of the entire Council to her.
I'm afraid you're all that stands between the Council and him.
The Council would do that?
The Council believes he's destroyed one planet and is about to destroy a second.
She leaned against the wall and drew a deep breath, praying A'Ran trusted this Council member for a reason.
She recognized Romas and his father, two other Council members with Jetr, and a few more strangers.
The Council will fund everything.
Mison might try to blow A'Ran up, or the Council change its mind, or A'Ran would destroy everything to win his war, even if it meant losing her.
You both must agree to the terms you made, and I will agree on behalf of the Council.
The one where you become the Council's assassin.
It was the symbol of the enforcer of the Council That Was Seven, the only of the seven brothers sanctioned to kill in cold blood on behalf of the Council and Immortals.
The Council's scientist hunched as the demons took his arms and withdrew him from the chamber.
You must tell Kris about Lilith. I'm sick of this war between you two. We need you both on the Council.
The specter pointed back towards the lake. Katie slowed and watched Gabriel continue onward. She'd liked Andre above any of the Council members, but his insistence that she go in the direction opposite of which she was headed puzzled her.
Take your place with us on the Council. We can deal with Death without breaking down her front door and pissing her off.
And I thought he'd started to accept a role on the Council, even if it was the one of the enforcer.
I don't know. He pulled the Council together after we split.
I sent out a party to search for our father's remains so we can have a safe place for the Council and Immortals again.
Kris, I think the era of the Council as a whole is over.
Kris heard what Kiki didn't say, that only Andre had been able to keep the Council together after their father's death. The six headstrong brothers of the Council That Was Seven had respected Andre, who was an adult when the rest of the brothers were born.
Listen, Kris, I'm not trying to be an ass, but logistically and in practicality, there's no reason for us to maintain the Council.
Death had visited the leaders of the Council – and Rhyn.
Which is why you hope to keep the Council together.
I hope to keep the Council together because it will do the most good.
And the Council has broken up at least once.
You want me to let the Council break apart.
To be more powerful, so I can wipe out my enemies and force my brothers to stay in the Council.
Death was right. Kris didn't have what it took to keep the Council together. He may have just lost one of his brothers, because he lost focus of what he should've done. Maybe he should've known Jade was a traitor or Hannah was a demon. He hadn't known of Andre's danger or been able to bring the Council together to fight the demons that threatened them all. He hadn't been able to keep Hannah safe or Toby or Katie.
Rhyn turned, surprised. He'd forgotten Kris's presence. The Council leader stepped forward.
The Council needs you.

On the 9th of December the fifth Lateran council, which had been reopened by Leo in April, ratified the peace with Louis XII.
While the council was engaged in planning a crusade and in considering the reform of the clergy, a new crisis occurred between the pope and the king of France.
During these two or three years of incessant political intrigue and warfare it was not to be expected that the Lateran council should accomplish much.
Its three main objects, the peace of Christendom, the crusade and the reform of the church, could be secured only by general agreement among the powers, and Leo or the council failed to secure such agreement.
Leo closed the council on the 16th of March 1517.
The year which marked the close of the Lateran council was also signalized by Leo's unholy war against the duke of Urbino.
