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 following orders, the Council voted to exile him to the unseen depths of the Krakoa that would leave him in a stasis-like condition because he could not be executed as his death would violate their new laws, as well as make him eligible for "resurrection protocols;" and 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]

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.[3][4]

Council Structure

The Council itself was divided up into four sections of three seats and named after the seasons:
