This article contains plot details from the latest books.
The elvin world is ruled by a council of 12, the Councillors. This Council is in charge of creating laws and determining the punishments for breaking said laws. Tribunals are held to find whether an elf accused of a crime is guilty or not. The council works in a large domed building with green stone walls in Eternalia. All of the councillors have goblin bodyguards and wear jewel encrusted circlets and silver capes with clasps that look like gold keys, they make 'human royalty look like amateurs'. Each of the Councillors swear to protect a cache with their life. Normal elves bow and curtsy whenever they approach. Councillors are not allowed to be married, because they need to put the good of the world before family.
The 12 CouncillorsEdit
Bronte: An Inflictor in charge of mentoring Sophie in his ability. He is almost always in a bad mood and seems to have an extreme dislike of Sophie. Though, after the majority of the council turns against Sophie, he changes sides and becomes one of the few that support Sophie.
Clarette: Clarette has long black hair to her waist and bronze skin. She is a very powerful Polyglot, possibly the most powerful one in the elvin world. She can use her talent to command animals, and can mimic languages and accents.

Oralie: Oralie has blond hair and looks like a fairy princess. She is an Empath and Conjurer, and often sides with Sophie. She is thought to have liked Kenric and was devastated after his death. In Neverseen, Oralie gives Sophie Kenric's cache. She then continues to help Sophie with various different things.
Ramira: Conjurer and Mesmer. Also mentioned in Neverseen.
Terik: Terik has wavy brown hair and colbalt blue eyes. He is a Descryer, a special ability that allow him to sense potential. He finds it a burden to be the only descryer because parents always want to know their children's potential and the children rarely live up to it. Terik helped Sophie in Exile to find her old journal and told her that he would be someone to trust as Sophie trusts Alden. Part of Black Swan.
