The [[Grey Council]] is the highest governing body in the Federation. The group is made up of nine [[Satai]] - three from each caste - with each member speaking for their own caste. The council is led by a [[Chosen One]] who acts as the voice of the council, but does not vote in their deliberations.

The first Grey Council was formed by [[Valen]] in [[1260]], who intended to strike a balance between the three castes who had, until that point, often been in conflict with one another. To this end, Valen called forth the first council of nine, made up of three from each of the three castes. This system endured for a thousand years until the council chose [[Neroon]] of the [[Warrior Caste]] to fill the place once filled by [[Delenn]] of the [[Religious Caste]], giving the Warriors an unprecedented majority.

The first Grey Council was formed by [[Valen]] circa [[1260]], who intended to strike a balance between the three castes who had, until that point, often been in conflict with one another. To this end, Valen called forth the first council of nine, made up of three from each of the three castes. This system endured for a thousand years until the council chose [[Neroon]] of the [[Warrior Caste]] to fill the place once filled by [[Delenn]] of the [[Religious Caste]], giving the Warriors an unprecedented majority.
   
 
In [[2260]], the council had become complacent and many no longer believed in the prophecies of Valen and refused to acknowledge the reality of the coming [[Shadow War]]. Such was their inaction that Delenn, unable to get through to all of them, broke the council. The resulting power vacuum eventually caused the [[Minbari Civil War]] and was stopped when Delenn reformed the council, though this time with five from the [[Worker Caste]] and only two each from the Religious and Warrior Castes, to make sure that the previously warring factions remember their true role, in service to the people who do the actual work of the Minbari Federation.
