[[TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck Scrooge]] [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales McDuck]]: Scrooge McDuck was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and when he was cheated out of a fair payment on his first job, he swore to make it big by being smarter then the smarties, sharper than the sharpies and tougher than the toughies. He traveled the world, serving as an example for all the ducks who work for him of diligence, honesty, and stubborn virtue. (Most of the time)
* However, the very thing that drove him also drove him to almost become an agent of the friends. Thanks to his value in working for what you get, Scrooge never made a deal with them. Rather, the friends used his greed to make the lives of millions around him miserable. But the high council decided it was time for scrooge to see the light, and so sent his nephew Donald to begin reforming him.
** Thanks to Donald dropping off Scrooge's grandnephews, Scrooge slowly began to change. Still valuing money, but also relearning the value of generosity, family, and regaining his spirit of adventure.
* In time, the high council approached Scrooge to become a full time ally. Scrooge, being a tough dealer, forced them to bargain for his assistance by promising to split profits 60%-40% for his help. Reluctantly they agreed, but eventually came around to Scrooge seeing how his sharp mind and determination made him an excellent treasure hunter, business negotiator, and even a warrior despite his age.
* Of course, all good things have to end, and Scrooge eventually died at the age of 100. Still, Zeus decided to bring his soul up to work in the afterlife. After all, good help is hard to find.



[[WesternAnimation/StarVSTheForcesOfEvil Star Butterfly]]: Born of a political marriage between the house Butterfly and the house Johansen, Star grew up being trained to be a warrior by the palace guards, while also developing a free spirit due to her strict parental upbringing. Despite her "reckless and irresponsible" behavior in her youth, the council personally thought she would make a fine princess, due to her fearless demeanor in fighting monsters and taming unicorns in her spare time. Inheriting the royal magic wand on her 14th birthday, her unfortunate lack of control lead her mom and dad (moon and river respectively) to send her to learn ordinary virtues on earth. While Star is only 14, thanks to her years of training and upbeat attitude, she's under consideration for direct training from Yen Sid in the future. Unfortunately for the council though, any attempt to breach contact has failed. This is because Star shows little interest in the formal trappings of leadership and learning, and is too interested in all her friends on earth to take on frontline duty. (Several council commanders have also sworn off working with her as she has been known to accideentally catch buildings on fire with flaming rainbows.)

* However, in recent times, Star has gone dark, abandoning contact due to wanting to battle Toffee on her mother's terms. However, the council [[YouAreNotAlone refuses to let star face this evil alone]], and is making plans to assist her when the battle returns.

* That is, until [[Pixar/FindingDory Dory received a vision to find her family again.]] It turns out, the council had been doing some research into Dory's situation, and decided to use a vision to bring dory back with her old family. While Dory's memory of the journey is...patchy, one thing does remain constant afterwards. When the council sent Ariel to try contacting her again, they told her about how they helped her find her parents. And in gratitute, Dory swore that she'll give her all to help the Council after that. While some of the council is reluctant to keep her on full time due to her mental health issues, they did give her a duty to keep the reef safe with her friends, as there were rumors of the friends planning to destroy it.

* However, there are rumors circulating now about McQueen. Apparently, one of Zeus's oracles predicted [[Pixar/Cars3 the end of Lightning Mcqueen's career]], and the entire council is now on alert, swearing to avert this from coming true.

[[Literature/AChristmasCarol Scrooge [=McDuck=]]]: After his HeelFaceTurn thanks to the three ghosts, Ebenezer's embrace of his second chance impressed the forces of good, who approached him to become one of their ranks. Scrooge is mainly used to help those who have become selfish and embittered to see the light as an agent of redemption. He was slated to work with the Prince before the Enchantress got to him. He also helps any High Council business due to his tough yet [[UnclePennybags Gracious]] business practices.

[[WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}} Hollywood Police Toon Division]]: As stated above, Toon Town is very important to the High Counsel. Of course, with an unruly population that's ChaoticNeutral at best, some sort of law is needed to keep the Toons from hurting real people. That's where the Toon Division steps in; hard-working officers like Sgt. Wright and Officer Bonkers protect the human world from Toon criminals, and to keep Toon Town from being corrupted by the Friends into something along the lines of [[CoolWorld the Cool World]].

* Vanellope Von Sweetz for her part is just glad to finally have her days of being an outcast being over, and on occasion gets called on for spying missions, since her TeleportSpam and CoolDriver skills allows for quick getaways.

[[Disney/{{Frozen}} Queen Elsa]]: OnceUponATime, a kind king and queen were blessed with a daughter who could generate ice and snow with but a thought or a wave of her hands. This immediately made Elsa a long-term interest to the High Council from a young age. The problem was that after the unfortunate accident between her and her sister, Elsa's parents cut off all contact with the council, wanting nothing more to do with magic, wars and "long term investments." Killed by trecherous seas (which surprising was not caused by either side), Elsa sunk into despair, and despite repeated hales from the princesses of heart, all requests to see her went unanswered. This left Elsa open to be pulled into despair by the Friends for much of her life, until her 21st year, when she came of age, and accidentally [[PowerIncontience froze her kingdom while running away]]. Alerted of these events by their agents at the coronation, ([[TheCameo Rapunzel and Eugene]]) the council brought a simple snowman to life as a final safeguard to ensure Elsa returning to the light. Finally getting control of her powers, Elsa now protects the kingdom of Arendelle from the Friends influence (and receives ice power training from [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles Frozone]].

[[WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}} The Guardians of Kandrakar]]: Given these teenagers' status as some of the most powerful magic users in the multiverse, they willingly joined to help keep both Earth, Meridian and the wider multiverse safe from their enemies and other evil magic users.

[[WesternAnimation/{{Motorcity}} The Burners]]: Protecting the ruins of old Detroit from the Deluxe dystopia in disguise above, the Burners have managed to slow down Kane's operations to a massive degree. Their side business of providing high-quality custom parts has also landed them a position as the go-to place for the High Council's agents to fix up their machines and vehicles. Some eyes are being kept on Julie considering her ArchnemesisDad, but they generally aren't too worried about it.

it. The Council sees them as close equivalents to the [[WesternAnimation/SonicTheHedgehog Freedom Fighters of Mobius]] whose world they briefly came into contact with some years ago only to lose contact just as quickly.



[[WesternAnimation/MiloMurphysLaw Milo Murphy]]: The Murphy family was once cursed to have every male murphy be plagued by every conceivable thing going wrong around them. While meant to drive the family insane and eventually be either harvested by the friends or to turn them to evil purposes, instead the Murphy line vowed to never let their constant disasters hold them down. Now every generation chooses to face every day as a challenge and an adventure. Milo is the latest in the line of Murphys. While only in high school, both friends and the council are holding Milo at arms length at the moment. The friends would love to tempt Milo into doing evil with his bad luck, but since their curse is harmful to any around Milo, any attempts at either temptation or extermination have failed spectacularly. The council on the other hand sent Phineas and Ferb to say hi to Milo (they live in adjacent neighborhoods), but after the end of summer vacation and encountering Milo's crazy luck, Ferb commented that they'll need more time than they have at the moment to make a proper assessment of what to do with Milo. For now, both sides have Milo under surveillance, and while Milo's interested in one day doing good for the council (his parents are aware of them), for the safety of everyone around him, Zeus has Milo DEEP on the reserve list right now.

UsefulNotes/DavyCrockett After his death at the Alamo, Davy [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence was brought before the High Council]], who were impressed with his wilderness skills and unwavering honesty. He now pursues the FOTOS through the wildernesses of different worlds, using his woodcraft to trap, hunt, and outwit the Friends wherever they may be.

[[Series/TheMuppetShow The Muppets]]: A collection of dogs and frogs and pigs and bears and chickens and...whatevers that, with a similar immortality to Mickey and his friends.

[[WesternAnimation/{{Recess}} Third Street School Students and Faculty]]: Though these children and adults mainly led a mundane life, if often taking a turn into SeriousBusiness, all that changed when the students and teacher managed to halt Dr. Benedict's plan to erase summer and plunge their Earth into a new ice age. The Council decided this would be where many children, be they royal, warriors or normal, would go to recieve an education of other Earths and learn to loosen up and have fun. TJ Detwiler and his group of friends take the lead outside the classroom, and are friends with many of the other children on the Council. Principla Peter Prickly handles the inside-the-classroom end, and serves as the Counil representative.

The Friends on the Other Side are the [[Bigdad Big Bads]], trying to bring about pain and destruction. However, they do not go unchallenged. There is a league of benevolent forces opposing them, organized in the same way, trying to lead everyone away from the Friends' influence. These guys are the {{Big Good}}s, helping anyone willing to oppose such forces.

Figment and Dreamfinder: Once a young inventor named Blairion Mercurial that harnessed the power of the mind that brought his childhood imaginary friend to life, these [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Anthropomorphic Personifications]] of the power of imagination itself and collectors of the very sparks of imagination that help bring the world's players into being, Dreamfinder was a former member of the High Council and an expert on dealing with the fears the Friends try to spread and he and Figment take strong efforts in [[SealedEvilInACan sealing those evils in a can]] within the Literature sections of the Dreamport. However, a whirlwind of events manipulated by the Friends lead to the Imagination Institute's encroachment on their home and the two were separated, Figment being left behind in the wake of what the Institute had done, the organization not even being aware of the Friends' influence. He helped Dr Channing see the error of his ways and have him try and atone for what happened and help find some way to locate Dreamfinder. Also works well with Peter Pan and some of the people of Wonderland.
