The Council is the governing body of the Psy and oversees the PsyNet. It consists of 7 Psy, with the odd number ensuring there was never a hung vote.[1] It is responsible for maintaining the stability of the Psy and the PsyNet.

"Who punishes the ones who take it too far?"--Lucas Hunter
"The Council."--Sascha Duncan
"But if the Council is wrong?"
"They know everything that goes on in the PsyNet. How could they be wrong?"
"But if no one else has access to all the information, how can they be held accountable?"
"Who holds you accountable? Who punishes the alpha?"
"If I break Pack law, the sentinels will take me down. Who takes down your Council?"
"They are Council. They are above the law." [2]
The Psy Council was composed of secretive, cutthroat Psy. Some appeared not to have great psychic ability, but these Psy were some of the most dangerous. It meant they were good at eliminating the competition and only leaving enough evidence for the other Councilors to appreciate their ruthlessness and elect them as a new member.

They are meant to be available to the public, though the path to them is lined with assistants and guards.[3] Unlike most Psy, a portion of a Councilor's mind is always active on the PsyNet, because they have to keep up with the data.

Councilors are based around the world. Enrique, Nikita, Tatiana, and Anthony are all based in California. Kaleb is based in Moscow. Ming is based in Europe.

Faith defected from the PsyNet, and thus only Kaleb was left to fill the position.

Henry is perceived as the weaker part of the political Scott marriage.

Santano Enrique, followed by Kaleb Kychek, were the Councilors responsible for corralling the DarkMind.
