The Council was a group of Highleaves, including the Crownleaf, that made big decisions for the troop. In Code of Honor, Stinger disbanded the Council and replaced it with the rank of the Strongbranches. This caused Mango, a baboon on the Council to protest. However, she complied, when reminded of Stinger's power, authority and ruthlessness, as well as his strength, right to rule, and cruelty.
Each member of the Council brings their "retinue", a few baboons to accompany them at a Council Meeting.
How it Works
The Council discusses important legislations of the Brightforest Troop, each saying their thought on it, and then the leader makes the decision, deciding from what the other Council members think.
