The Council of Elders successfully defeated Dyr and the Sunbird was dismantled into separate components. The Council of Elders took each of the four separate pieces and hid them in different places across Eternia.
The Council of Elders would go on to combine their powers and knowledge to create the "Crystal of Knowledge", where their knowledge would live forever. The crystal found a home, deep beneath Castle Grayskull, locked in the "Vault of Knowledge".
#2) The Council of the Wise, was an ancient ruling faction, made up of the wisest people in the land.
The planet of Eternia was separated into two. One side was the side of light, while the other was the side of night. Evil lurked on the planet's night side, held back by a mystic wall. The council eventually was spoiled by the rich life they were living. The Sorceress told council, that it was the time to live alone again. They knew that the evil would one day break through the wall, so all the members of this council combined all their powers to create Castle Grayskull. With this castle and the magic within, their would be a champion, who would claim this power to battle the evil.
