The Arcane Conclave/Magic Council

Origins

The Arcane Conclave, formerly referred to as the High Council of the International Magic Council, is an organization that was built upon the most prestigious magical families that the world has to offer. Whether they were invited or one of the families that helped found the organization, there are some that have built reputation upon magical research and offer the information they have achieved to the Conclave, along with the pros and cons of achieving such works.

The Magic Council used to be open to all levels of magic users to hone their skills and learn from prestigious families, however, over the years, especially when Ravendwel had been a High Council seat, they proposed that only those of some level of societal standing be accepted, let alone invited to the Magic Council. The Lower Council had some families prefer a form of filtration as to limit the amount of students present. 

Over time, families tended to absorb the loyalty of other families and the terms affiliated and unaffiliated became ways to label mages and even families. Normally, families of the Lower Council had sworn loyalty to families of the High Council in exchange for magical schooling and protection. The Affiliated mages are protected by the respected High Council while the Unaffiliated are known to have struggled and even drop out of the Council.

Over time, the Council had truly been split between the High Council which had nine seats. These mages are either descendants of the founding families of the Council originally or of some extraordinary talent in a school of magic, where their skill is almost unmatched by most. Most members of the Magic Council have been human, and the only known member of the Council that is non-human is Byron Passel, a descendant of Balfour's family.

Current State of Affairs

The High Council of the Magic Council have officially separated themselves from the Magic Council leaving the taint of the Lower Council's reputation among themselves. However, this does not mean that the nine members are not willing to clean up the mess that other magic-oriented families have created. The nine members of the High Council have rebranded themselves as the "Arcane Conclave" and have settled in to where they reside. There are four members within the territories of Kandarin, two within Misthalin and three within the Kharidian. 
 

The members of Kandarin are what is left of the original founding families that have remained as the High Council of the Magic Council. 

-Vincent Galashiel
-Graham Galashiel
-Damien Vernizin

-Roselyn Vernizin, also known as Astrid

The two of Misthalin were introduced to Gerard's family and have served him as friends of the family and his personal right-hand and left-hand respectively.

-Ali/Alistair Cardian

-Byron Passel, descended from Balfour's brother

Finally there are three ,members within Menaphos:

-Cerys Wren, under Raine's employ as the leader of the Arcane Legion, a proper Menaphite branch of the Conclave for Menaphos
-Izabella Fenrin

-Caelan Zalantare, formerly an Ignis and one of the two cousins of the late King Chris Ignis

Character name: Byron Passel

Arcane Conclave Branch: Misthalin

Aliases/Nicknames: Byr

Gender: Male

Race: Werewolf

Age: 33

Birthplace: Canifis

Parentage: -

Other family: Balfour Demerath, Kynthia Barald

Partner(s)/Love Interests: -

Religion/Beliefs: None

Appearance: -

Personality: Byron is one of the two serious members of the nine. He tends to keep Ali's quirks in check and that normally extends to other members like Graham. 

Allegiance: Arcane Conclave, Burthorpe, Varrock

Equipment: -

Goal: Keep Burthorpe/Misthalin safe from the enemies of the Conclave

Quirks: Sleeps like a puppy at night
   
Language: Common, Elven, Vyre, Infernal, Icyenic

Strengths: Like each of the members of Conclave, he has a specific talent. Byron is considered the most dangerous member of the Conclave. He has a personal ability of markings along his body, normally covered by his clothing and/or armor, that creates what is considered the Aura of Silence. Despite its name, it does not silence Byron or those around him, it causes a magic-dead zone. He is the only Conclave member that specializes in melee and ranged combat to take down enemies.

Weaknesses: Byron cannot cast offensive magic spells

Background & Social Status: Byron is descended from Balfour's brother's lineage. Byron inherited his great-great grandfather's abilities. Byron is the commander of Burthorpe's militia and has no patience for the pride of nobles and does not humor the recruitment of boys from the nobility for making a name for themselves. On the rare occasion, he will do a raid with his great-great grand uncle to suspected enemies of the Conclave or known political groups.

When Byron is not working he does enjoy downtime at his manor reading and listening to the latest hits on the musical front while painting or reading.
