Exodite Council

The Exodite Council is a council of venerable elves that ultimately rule Exodus. Recruited from the high-ranking ministry among Exodites, councilors can only be removed in one of three ways. Death, voluntary retirement, or being expelled by unanimous consent of other councilors. The number of councilors varies, as the current councilors do not necessarily feel the need to invite new councilors on a replacement basis. Rather, they invite on a basis of gaining perspectives they believe would be valuable.   The Council convenes in Fin-Lyaan, and has no formal leader. Rather, consensus is reached through informal politicking and the most influential councilors tend to be the most charismatic or most senior ones. There are currently 17 councilors, but the number has moved up and down along the years.   The Exodite Council can change any law with the stroke of a pen, and has no formal limit on their power. While every other minister is constrained by law and the potential consequence of removal from their position, the body of councilors can simply overturn any previous pronouncement, and any decision they publish carries the full force of law upon all Exodites. Merely the unanimous consent of the council is required to do anything in Exodite society.   Perhaps the greatest limitation of the council is that they do very little hands on, being reliant on lesser ministers within the Exodite bureaucracy to both keep them informed and filter reports up the chain, and to carry out their instructions. With Exodite society being as it is, pronouncements not being followed is very rarely a problem, and when it is the offending minister is swiftly and summarily removed from their post. Usually, the council does not concern itself with the minutiae of how ministers fulfill their tasks but rather focus on the general direction of the Exodite state and its policy.

Public Agenda

The Exodite Council is the body formed to rule Exodus, and guide the elves that belong to it. Tracing back to the foundation of the Exodite state, the councilors believe they have the same job as every other Exodite elf; to advance the interests of the elven race and Exodite state. In that, they occupy a position of honor, as it falls on them to exercise authority for the good of all.


The Exodite Council has, in theory, all the resources of the millions strong, technologically and militarily advanced Exodite state at its disposal. In a final sense, they command all the personnel and material resources of Exodus, and further have access to many of the resources of the Khelish kingdoms through their most powerful subordinate, the Minister of Fin-Allan. Practical concerns and bureaucratic inertia, as well as potential resistance from human subjects restricts their ability to wield these resources somewhat, but the power they command is still immense.
