This article contains plot details from the latest books.

The Black Swan's Collective consists of its five leaders, Mr. Forkle, Blur, Granite, Wraith, and Squall. The Collective makes the big decisions for the Black Swan. It was mentioned by Mr. Forkle that it is ultimately their plan for Sophie and her original group of friends to take their places, eventually. They, like the Councillors, cannot have kids or a family, but that rule has been broken for Squall and Granite.

It is revealed in Nightfall that Mr. Forkle had a twin brother that went by the same name. Sometimes Sophie was in the company of one, and sometimes with the other. Unfortunately, one of the brothers died at the end of Lodestar, and now Mr. Forkle can't be in multiple places at one time anymore.
