The Council of Elders were an ancient group of dragons that trained those that wished to fight against evil. But one day, a new student came, and though he trained in the way the Elders approved of, one of the Elders noticed that the student had a knack for killing animals, and knowing that the student's love for killing would only grow, he trained the student to be an assassin. The other Elders learned of this, and they then executed the 'traitorous' Elder, and tried to execute the student, but he escaped and soon called himself the Anti-Hero. The Anti-Hero appointed himself executioner and killed all but one of the Elders. All that is left of the Elders' headquarters are just ruins, which are located in the realm of Ashtala.
