Characters who are, or where formerly, on Hell's Council. Occasionally referred to as the Council of Seven due to the number of seats available on the Council. Each member of Hell's Council has a specific task reflected in the title the council members carry.
Founded by Señor Diablo, each member of the Hell Council is given control of 1/7th of the combined Hells. By design the seventh seat is always vacant and defaults back to Diablo himself when decisions are made. The only way to join the Hell Council is to kill a previous member and take their position and powers. Council Members do not concern themselves with the transfer of soul coins and are generally given free reign to do as they see fit in Hell. Leviathan and it's Cenobites are the only beings in Hell whom the Council has no authority over despite technically representing the seventh seat of the Council.
Each council member is considered a Lord or Lady of a specific location of Hell which they then govern. Their full titles include that location and is then offset by the duties of that position. For instance Diablo is considered "the Lord of the Lower Depths of Hell, Master of it's Archives, and one seventh Council of Hell".

In special circumstances a seat on the Council can be made vacant but generally it requires the previous seat-holder to relinquish their duties onto a designated representative and often ends with the former being banished from Hell. In the result of confusion an empty seat always defaults back to Señor Diablo as it was his domain which was divided to create the seven positions. However, in the above list a blank square represents information not currently available more than it does a vacant seat. Some secrets are held on purpose as the knowledge of them is of significant importance.
In addition to the proper full members of the Hell Council there have been several additional members who have played an important role without actually holding a seat.
In addition to the honorary members above, the following groups have also been known to assist the Council under special circumstances.
The Hell Council is very similar in appearance to Twisted's Council. It is a group of higher powers that look down upon those inhabiting it's worlds and decides the fate of those creatures. While Hell is after all that horrific place where the damned go to spend eternity, it is also home to many forms of life both native and adopted. Likewise the members of it's Council aren't always the kind you'd expect in this sort of place. One dramatic difference between this Council and the one 'above' is that this one aims to unite all worlds under one rule, not separate them to prevent contamination...
