The Thirteen Fingers
Council of Nine
The Council of Nine is the group of advisors to the Emperor. Their existence dates back to Emperor Shinobu Hideyoshi. The Council of Nine’s influence varies based on the political climate; during wartime, they are a vital piece for the Emperor. During times of peace, they have much less responsibility.
