The Council of Santhenar was the ruling body of Santhenar, headed by the Magister, for thousands of years. The major purpose of the Council was to find a way to banish Rulke and the rest of the Charon from Santhenar for all time. It also served to keep watch on the Nightland. The Council consisted of a collection of great mancers and scholars.
Some fifty years after the breaking of the Forbidding, the Council struggled to create a united front against the invading lyrinx. At this time, the shadowy Numinator stepped in and killed many mancers, dissolving the Council into the Council of Scrutators.
The Council came into existence following a coalition between Aachim and old humans against the Charon, sometime before the creation of the Forbidding. Consisting of the greatest mancers and scholars of the two species, and headed by the Aachim leader Kwinlis as Magister, the Council's major purpose was to find a way to banish the Charon from Santhenar forever.
By 1,000 BTM, the Council resolved to use the Prescribed Experiments to achieve its purpose by defeating Rulke, greatest of the Charon. However, the strain of the Experiments proved too much even for Rula, widely considered the greatest Magister to ever lead the Council, who died shortly after the undertaking. Following Rula's death Mendark became Magister and led the Council in the taking of Rulke, whilst Council member Yggur used the Experiments to entrap the Charon. Yggur ultimately broke under the power of Rulke, and seeing an opportunity to overwhelm the Charon during this struggle, Mendark trapped Rulke in Yggur's mind. As Rulke attempted to release himself, Mendark forced the Charon into a tumor formed from the Forbidding and sealed it, creating the Nightland, an impenetrable prison.
