The '''Magic Council''' (also called '''Mystical Council''') was an ensemble of representative beings from various species ([[Demon|demons]], [[Mystic|mystics]], [[Higher being|deities]]) created in order to protect and preserve the [[magic]] on [[Earth]].
+
The '''Magic Council''' was assembled by [[Illyria]] following the [[End of Magic]] in order to protect and preserve what little mystical energy remained as well as combat the growing threat of [[Severin|the Siphon]].
   
==History==
+
Some time after magic is restored, the Council, headed by [[Buffy Summers]], becomes Earth's premiere organisation balancing the interests of the world's magical communities, overseeing the highly powerful [[Slayer Handbook|''Vampyr'' book]] and acting as a sort of government.

===First Council===
 
===First Council===
{{Quote|Without a conduit to the hell dimensions, beings who have power in this realm are few. We all must band together to protect what little mystical energy is left. Witches, demons, mystics, deities...|[[Tree Witch]]|Welcome to the Team, Part Two}}
 
 
The Council was first assembled following the [[End of Magic|end of magic]], in order to protect and preserve what little mystical energy remained, as well as combat the growing threat of "the Siphon," [[Severin]]. As had stolen magic from many demons, his powers growing unchecked was a threat to the natural order of things, and he'd eventually come after all last beings with magic. For this task, they voted in favor of recruiting [[Buffy Summers]], who refused to join the group but accepted the battle, and the [[nitobe]] demon [[Eldre Koh]], since both had dealt with Severin before.
 
 
During the negotiation, the present Council members were [[Illyria]], [[D'Hoffryn]], the [[The Brahma|Brahma]], [[Balloon demon]], [[Tree Witch]], [[Leaf Blower demon]], an unidentified wizard, and an unidentified witch.<ref name=":0">''[[Welcome to the Team, Part Two]]''</ref> The Council also had many other recruits at their call,<ref name=":1">"[[The Core]]"</ref> but their roles are unknown, as well as their hierarchy system.
 
 
Severin had drained the Tree Witch's magic, and Buffy discovered he was using the Council to attract Illyria and target her [[Time Travel|time travel]] powers. His intentions of undoing the past would be an even greater damage to the Earth,<ref>''[[Welcome to the Team, Part Three]]''</ref> leading to a minor apocalypse. Once Severin got to rob Illyria's powers, the others members fled, and regrouped without Buffy, Koh, and Illyria, due to their failed mission.<ref>''[[Welcome to the Team, Part Four]]''</ref>
 
 
After the destruction of the [[Seed of Wonder]], the [[Deeper Well's guardians]] ceded control of the place to the Magic Council, since it hold untold amount of magic inside. Buffy, [[Willow Rosenberg|Willow]], and [[Xander Harris|Xander]] attempted to enter it in order to get enough energy to save Dawn from disappearing. Guarding the place against Severin, D'Hoffryn reminded Buffy that their job was to protect magic from everyone, so a battle started.<ref>''[[The Core, Part One]]''</ref> Meanwhile, Severin and the rogue slayer [[Simone Doffler]] were able to sneak into the entrance, finding the Balloon demon by himself, easily killing him, and entering the Deeper Well.
 
 
During the battle, Willow killed the Leaf Blower demon. Illyria and Koh arrived as reinforcements, joining Buffy's side, but Xander revealed he had betrayed her and knew the Siphon's plans. The Council granted the Scoobies entrance to the Well so they could help defeat the common threat, but with the [[Brahma]] securing Xander as hostage. Buffy denied helping against Severin, saying her sister came first and they could manage it without her, and jumped with Willow into the Well.
 
 
Most members of the council perished in the fight against [[Maloker]] in the [[Deeper Well]], with only [[Eldre Koh]] and [[D'Hoffryn]] as the known survivors.

===Second Council===
{{Quote|We of the Council hail from varied pantheons, possessing a wide range of interests and priorities. Often conflicting ones. You may be assured none of us will let another abuse their privileges. If they do, a simple majority strips them of their seat... and the power that accompanies it.|[[Monarch]]|In Pieces on the Ground, Part Three}}

Following the restoration of magic, the Council reformed with D'Hoffryn and a new group of demons to keep the world in check as the new rules were established. In order to ensure that the new rules were adhered to without making any of the affiliated demons too powerful, Buffy and the other Scoobies created a series of rules where each member of the Council would have a particular ability that they could use against those who would threaten the balance, but that ability would be tied to their position rather than the individual demon themselves. They were also in alliance with [[Theo Daniels]] and [[Lake Stevens]] to find a way to close the dimensional portals when the Earth was invaded by thousands of demons and dangerous creatures.

However, it was later revealed that D'Hoffryn had worked in a crucial clause to the rules of the Council, in the form of a loophole that another member would inherit the powers of a Council member if they were killed until a 'replacement' could be appointed, thus allowing him to eliminate the rest of the Council and take their powers for himself.<ref name=":2" />

Proceeding D'Hoffryn's death, a new magic council was formed. To prevent the mistakes of the previous council, Buffy elected members from her own side as well as supernatural creatures in order to create a fair and balenced comittee. This included herself as president, [[Rupert Giles]] as vice president, [[Riley Finn]] and [[Willow Rosenberg]], as well as Count [[Dracula]], Archduchess [[Venobia]], a lucky cat, a skeleton humaniod and slime monster.
