The Quiet Council of Krakoa was the governing body tasked with creating and enforcing the laws of the nation-state upon Krakoa.[1]

History

First Meeting

The Council's inaugural meeting was for drafting and implementing a set of initial laws for Krakoa. After much discussion, often revolving around the complication of mutants such as Sabretooth, the Council decided upon three basic laws for the fledgling nation: 1) Make more mutants; 2) Murder no man; 3) Respect the sacred land of Krakoa.[2]

Due to Sabretooth's violent nature, repeated and longtime disregard for life, and resistance to following orders, the Council voted to exile him to the unseen depths of Krakoa and left in a stasis-like condition; he could not be executed as his death would violate their new laws as well as make him eligible for the "resurrection protocols", and he could not be released back into the outside world because mutants no longer fell under jurisdiction of humanity.[2]

After the end of the meeting, the Council joined the celebrations taking place upon island for the recognition of Krakoa as a sovereign nation under the United Nations.[2]

Dawn of X

Kate Pryde accepted the role of the Red Queen of the Hellfire Trading Company and was assigned the initially undetermined seat in the Quiet Council of Krakoa.[3][4]

The Council also led the successful reformation of X-Factor, Hellions, X-Force, and S.W.O.R.D.[5][6][7][8]

X of Swords

Following Saturnyne's Tournaments of Swords and battle in Otherworld, the Quiet Council lost two of its members with • --|A|-- • staying in Amenth with his his wife and Jean resigning to co-lead the X-Men into Otherworld to save her son, deciding that a team of X-Men was needed to act heroically without the hindrance of Council's politics.[9][10]

Planet Arakko

In an effort to solve the situation of Arakko's presence on Earth, the Council receiving support from the Great Ring, approved to move the island and its inhabitants to Mars, which would be terraformed and declared the capital of the Sol system, giving mutantkind an upper hand in negotiations with alien civilizations. The Council offered three of its members, Exodus, Magneto, and Storm, to aid in the project, which was successful.[11]

Inferno

After consulting with Moira, Magneto and Professor X were urged to remove Mystique from her position of power in order to prevent her from resurrecting Destiny. A meeting was arranged to discuss changes in the Council, Mystique instead proposed a candidate for one of the vacant seats: the seemingly resurrected Destiny.[12]

Council Structure

The Council itself was divided up into four sections of three seats along with an adjunct section:
