The Bleak Council, the Council of Ashtakala or The Bleak Congress is the secondary tier of the Lords of Dust who oversee the organization. The Council of Ashtakala includes all prakhutu (or speaker in Infernal) of the Overlords as well as a number of other powerful fiends and creatures.
The Council directs and coordinates efforts to free their masters from the bindings within the Silver Flame and includes experts on the Draconic Prophecy in their number. They often work in opposition to the dragons who belong to The Chamber.
The Claws of Khyber is a tier below the Council, and is made up of active agents enforcing the will of the Lords of Dust. Various mortals make up the bottom tier as witting or unwitting mortal agents.
