The Citadel Council

Council Hologram-Ambassador Meeting 2

The Citadel Council is the governing body of the Citadel. Representing the most powerful races in Citadel Space, the Council holds power disproportionate with their stated mandate. While the Council has no real power over the various governments of the Citadel races, the power wielded by their respective governments, combined with the general "don't rock the boat" mentality of the other races, gives the pronouncements of the Council great weight. No one Council race has the power to oppose the other two, and the nature of the races represented is conducive to compromise and cooperation. The Council originally consisted of two races, the centrist asari and the forward-thinking salarians. Following the Rachni Wars, the Council was expanded to include the more conservative turians. In recent years, there has been much talk of a new addition to the Council, with speculated likely candidates ranging from the hanar Illuminated Primacy to the human Systems Alliance. Whatever its future composition, the Citadel Council is sure to maintain its position of power and influence for years to come. more...
