The Council of Wizards and Witches of England

Council

Unnamed by Jason Felix

The Council of Wizards and Witches of England is the largest Wizardry community in the world, they operate as much as The League of Heroes in the sense that they take control and jurisdiction of the Magic World, under their sphere of influence they administrate other several Magic Societies.   Under an agreement done with The League of Heroes, the Council would take jurisdiction on these magic societies, the League would no intervene directly but rather act through the Council and only through the Council, this has resulted on several conflicts with The League in the past due to the practices the Council uses to deal with the magic societies, for The League, their practices are seem as severe and sometimes extreme, none the less, conflict with the magic world and human world is close to non existence. Only when conflict between the human world and the Magic world occurs is when both the League and the Council will work together to solve the situation.

Structure

The Purest of the Pure

For the Witches and Wizards, the purity of their blood is everything, not only is tied directly to their powers but its important part of their social structure, as such is natural these ideals are reflected on their largest administrative organization.   The Council is formed by one member of each of the most powerful and prestigious houses of each Society, how is a house determined to be worthy of inclusion in the Council is a very convoluted procurement, but the most important factors for a family are to be of pure blood and to demonstrate direct ties to one of the mythical Witch of Wizard ancestors, if the house es able to demonstrate these requirements, they are inspected by the Council and determine if they are worthy or not, there is no arbitrary measurements for this, the council ultimately decides the final verdict. In the last century the organization has not add a new member.   The position of each member is hereditary and each family must appoint an Witch or Wizard to act on the council, often time they send an important and experience member of the house for this matters.   Finally, the Head members are composed by the most prestigious Family of each Society effectively giving two seat to this family, one of the Council and one on the Head Members. They are the auditory members of the Council, while the other members propose new course of actions, the Head members are the ones able to allow those motions to continue or to block them, they may also backtrack any decision taken by the council, thes eactions however must be taken via ammine vote.

Public Agenda

The Poisoned Council

In their world, the Council acts as the undisputed authority, regulating and imposing laws into their societies, while they do a more than adequate job, the council in rampant with corruption and members that run on their own self interest. This has led to a great discontent on many of the Magic Societies tat are left unrepresented and untenanted. Due to this problems, the constant outrage from various parts of their societies grows ever more day by day. Causing in several Witches and Wizards to abandoning their societies all together and entering into the human world, this acts is forbidden for all Magic users and led to the council to take unorthodox actions, resulting sometimes in catastrophes either in the human world or the magic world.   While this problems continue to grow, the Council had keep much of this information outside of public knowledge, specially The League of Heroes however some cases are brought into the light damaging the relations of both organizations.
