The Council of Six, also known as the Six, the High Council or the Ruling Council, is the ruling council of the Magocracy of Dalaran, comprised of six of the most senior mages, one of them being the council ruler. They meet in the Chamber of Air, which is a room with no visible walls. It was originally a secret council, but in recent times the secrecy has been abandoned.
Current Known Members Edit
- Khadgar, one of the world's most powerful mages to have ever lived, and Medivh's former apprentice. He has taken Jaina's place at the head of the council and wields Atiesh, the great staff of the Guardian. As a result, he is the closest echo to the guardians of yore.
- Karlain, an alchemist who is proficient at controlling his emotions.
- Archmage Ansirem Runeweaver, author of many books and documents found in Dalaran... And occasionally the Twisting Nether.
- Archmage Modera, the longest-standing member of the current council, having been present as early as the Second War.
- Vargoth, a prominent researcher and aged member of the Kirin Tor, Vargoth is one of the few survivors of the Kirin'var Village massacre from Outland. After returning home to Dalaran, Vargoth assisted in many valuable research findings before being elevated to a position on the council. He is known for having many Arcane Familiars, occasionally giving them away to adventurers.
- Kalecgos, former Aspect of Magic and former leader of the Blue Dragonflight, Kalecgos became closely involved with the Kirin Tor when he began to court the former leader, Jaina Proudmoore. After Jaina's departure, Kalec filled in her position in the order; some noting the tension this would undoubtedly cause the possibly now former lovers. As having once been a Dragon Aspect, Kalec's mastery over magic is near unsurpassed.

- Lady Jaina Proudmoore, became leader after the death of Rhonin, though later left during the Legion invasion of Azeroth.
