Overview Edit

The Council is one of the main factions in the City of Heroes universe. It is a paramilitary force with a vast web of resources, an army of superhuman soldiers, legions of killer automatons and an extraterrestrial alliance. Despite their regular use of conventional weapons, the Council is able to keep under its control whole zones by itself and should not be underestimated. This villain group is present in City of Heroes in force, being found in many zones in Paragon City, mostly between levels 10 and 40. They can be found in City of Villains in much lesser numbers, due to their feud with the ruling power in the Rogue Isles, Arachnos.

Background Edit

Emblem V Council 01

The Council official info ( Copied from the City of Heroes official website [1]):

The shadowy brain trust known as the Council has become a major player in Paragon City only recently, but their roots stretch back through more than six decades of trickery, intrigue and lies. After their recent coup, the Council is ready to take Paragon City by storm, starting from their base on Striga Isle.

This island off the coast of Paragon City has never been the most savory of environments, but, with the addition of the Council, Striga’s gotten a lot worse. The Warriors and the Family are still in nominal control of portions of the island, but a vast chunk of it is dedicated to the biggest and most well-defended villain base the heroes of Paragon have ever seen. The base is built around a massive volcano on the easternmost edge of the island. Rumors indicate that the smoking volcano may, in fact, be dormant and that fantastic experiments may be going on inside.

In addition to their large holdings on Striga Isle, the Council has another ace up its sleeve: their alliance with the Nictus. These evil aliens have been partnered with the Council since its formative years in the aftermath of World War II. Two of the group’s most feared leaders are humans fused with Nictus energy beings: Requiem and Arakhn. Though Requiem is known to be a somewhat bitter servant of the Council, Arakhn, by all appearances, is a loyal soldier. Her experimentation with the use of Nictus fragments has resulted in many new warriors within the Council’s ranks- including the Galaxy troops, whose dark energy attacks are deadly.

At the heart of the Council is a being known only as The Center: a man whose powers are shrouded in mystery. Some rumors indicate that the Center has powerful psychic abilities, while others suggest he is nothing more than a ruthless and brilliant strategist. One thing is certain: he has built his Council into a threat that can only be torn apart by the bravest inhabitants of the City of Heroes.

The Galaxy band of the Council has been trained by Arakhn in stealth and infiltration. The have also been conditioned by Kheldian mind control techniques to be loyal to her above all others. That weapon he carries is obviously Nictus technology, and probably deadly against Kheldian energy signatures.

Lt. Blechley Edit

Main Article: Lt. Blechley

Though the Vampyri of the Council are not undead, they are certainly monsters. Lt. Blechley is typical of them. His body has been modified by grotesque surgeries and chemical treatments into a super-human killing machine, and his mind has been altered to match. It's no wonder Old Man Marcone didn't allow them in Port Oakes.

BulwarkEdit

Main Article: Bulwark

This monstruosity of a Mech Man was made using the same technology that powers Citadel. It's no fit legacy for the heroic android, and must be destroyed.

Kirby1fanAdded by Kirby1fan

Very little is known about the mysterious figure known as Arakhn. She is a deadly assassin and is the last thing seen by many enemies of the Council. What most of the Council is unaware of is that Arakhn's powers resulted from the fusion of her human body with a Nictus life form. She is on the front lines of a war with the Kheldians, ancient enemies of the Nictus.

Archon Burkholder Edit

Archon Burkholder
SleepykittyAdded by Sleepykitty

Archon Burkholder is a relic from another villainous group that was recently subsumed by the Council. Nevertheless, he seems to have made a place for himself in the new regime. His obsession with robotics led him to carve off his own arm and replace it with one of steel; it also led him to create this terrifying robot factory. To prevent the launch of the giant Zenith Mech Man, you must defeat Burkholder.

Main Article: Maestro

As a child, Vincenzo Alferi dreamed of becoming a great composer, but those dreams were shattered when he lost his hearing due to a car accident. The Council offered to perform a radical experiment that might restore his hearing, and Vincenzo agreed without hesitation. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned. An Arachnos attack on the facility resulted in a power surge at the worst possible moment. Instead of restoring him, the resulting explosion created a permanent resonance in Vincenzo's body. He agreed to join the Council if they would give him the opportunity for vengeance against Arachnos.

Nosferatu Edit

Main Article: Nosferatu

Few truly appreciate the genius of Nosferatu's super soldier program, and none more so than himself. Nosferatu was so entranced by his ability to create the super strong Vampyri that he became one of them. He has since improved upon his original design by granting himself several new abilities. He can mesmerize his opponents, leaving them helpless. Some say he can even siphon off the life force of his foes.

Powers


Requiem Edit

Requiem
Requiem

Main Article: Requiem

Ridolfo Uzzano has come a long way from his humble beginning as one of Mussolini's lapdogs. The primary cause of his success was his fusion with a Nictus, a being of utter darkness. The Nictus gave Ridolfo the ability to scorch his foes with an infernal fire. Though he is now over 100 years old, Requiem remains a fearsome foe in battle. Before the Center arrived to spoil his fun, Requiem ruled over the massive military organization that was subsumed by the Council. His closest attendents suspect that Requiem is still smarting from his loss of power, and plotting his revenge.

Powers



Vandal Edit

Council Vandal 01
Vandal

Main Article: Vandal

The fiend known as Vandal was once a humble tinkerer named Othman Doul. In the late 1930s, the villain Requiem recognized Doul's usefulness and recruited him to produce the fabulous machinery that powers the Council's arsenal. Othman was happy to oblige, since it meant he could indulge his scientific curiosity without restraint. Over the years, Vandal has mechanically augmented himself to prolong his lifespan. Now, he seeks to advance his own position within the Council by pushing his terrible technology ever farther.

StarGeekAdded by StarGeek

The Vampyri are the very pinnacle of the Council's super soldier program. The final stages of the process are carried out within these crypt-like chambers, where a complex cocktail of hormones and mutagens are fed to the prospective vampyri intravenously. Though some fatalities inevitably occur, the resulting super soldiers are more than enough to make up for the loss.
