[[CarlBarks Gladstone]] [[DonaldDuck Gander]]: Despite what some think, Gladstone's improbable luck is not a "gift" from the friends, but apparently an inherited trait, passed on from his mother. In any event, Gladstone is an irritation to both sides of the war, as he represnts a valuable ally that will never be. The Friends have nothing to offer Gladstone that his luck can't provide-and besides, that whole "repaying" business sounds an awful lot like work. The Council has likewise tried to recruit Gladstone, but Gladstone's laziness, selfishness, and ego prevent him from taking an interest in anything that doesn't directly involve his own self interest. In addition, both Donald and Scrooge bitterly dislike Gladstone, and protest whenever mention is made of his joining the Council's allies. At current time, Glastone remains unaligned, doing whatever he pleases and assuming the world owes him a living. If his luck should ever run out, the Friends will be sure to turn that to their advantage-or the Council will be there to give him a well-earned kick in the tailfeathers.

WesternAnimation/GravityFalls: This sleepy little town in northern Oregon would be utterly overlooked were it not for the alarmingly high number of supernatural creatures occurring within and around it. There's no evidence of the Friends' influence yet, but the Council is rather nervous about the town, especially about local huckster Stan, who seems to be up to more than running a simple tourist trap.

trap. However, both sides waited to see what would happen once an extradimensional demon, Bill Cipher, was unleashed. However, the people of Gravity Falls, including Stan and his twin brother, inventor Stanford, were able to destroy Cipher and prevent his plot. This convinced the Friends to stay away, but the Council continues to investigate, even despite many of the heroes of the battle going their separate ways.

[[Disney/BigHero6 Allister Krei]]: The CEO of Krei Tech, and a savvy businessman, Krei has little interest in fighting specifically for good or for evil. Merely for profit. He does have a generous streak in trying to buy out other people's inventions, but as a pragmatic entrepreneur, he can take some risks that others would find questionable, such as the incident with the teleportation gateway. On the other hand, he knows his limits as an executive when to mothball a project. For the time being, he's too principled to accept any help from the friends, but too wrapped in his own things to be interested in fully joining the council.

[[Disney/{{Zootopia}} Leodore Lionheart]]: When he was elected to Zootopia, the council offered their friendship to Lionheart in protecting his city from the Friends. However, Lionheart was more interested in the perks of the job rather than doing good. While he did promise to keep relations open, he wasn't interested in fighting demons. Then Bellweather started turning predators "savage". Distressed, rather than seek the help of the council, he instead took to capture each predator and then try to cure them on his own.

* The Enchantress made her way to the prince's castle, alone and disguised as an old beggar woman. Being out in the middle of winter, she knew that this pitiful appearance would be helpful for testing the prince's compassion, and so knocked, offering a single rose as payment for a night's rest from the cold. The Prince sneered at the lowly flower and her appearance, and demanded she leave. Pressing further, The Enchantress asked that prince Adam not judge her by appearance, as beauty comes from within. But then he dismissed her again, and the enchantress revealed herself. While the prince tried to apologize for the mistake, it was too late. They were hoping that, by the time he died, years spent in isolation would have twisted him into an even better soldier for their armies. Plus, the servants, also trapped in a horrible fate by a supposedly good force, might lose their faith in the more benevolent forces of the Disney Universe, thus leaving their souls up for grabs. The way out was a natural consequence of the PowerOfLove. The Enchantress spelled it out for the Beast because she wanted the situation to seem hopeless and, as far as she knew, it was. [[EvilCannotComprehendGood Evil can't comprehend good]], after all, and the Friends really didn't believe anyone could love a beast. Ultimately, Belle's arrival botched the plan, leaving them with only one soul, Gastonís. She is a member of the Inner Circle, because after all, there is nothing more dangerous than a [[VillainWithGoodPublicity force of evil that everyone believes is good]].
* Also she is one of the Fair folk, members of the court of Oberon, faire king. More specifically, the enchantress can split herself up into 3 girls, the Weird Sisters, for combat and espionage purposes. They/She has/have worked with the Archmage and Demona many times before when trying to destroy Goliath and his friends.

But then he dismissed her again, and the enchantress revealed herself. While the prince tried to apologize for the mistake, it was too late. They were hoping that, For she had seen that there was no pity, no compassion, no love in this ill tempered prince who would leave an old woman to die in the cold rather than give shelter for 1 night. And so, she cast her most powerful spell ever, transforming Adam into a beast, and cursing the whole castle with darkness and polymorph.
** The reason she cursed the servants as well was because they bore some responsibility in making the prince this way. After all, a prince can't spoil himself without enablers.
* The Friends had hoped that
by the time he Adam died, years spent in isolation would have twisted him into an even better a soldier for their armies. Plus, And the servants, also trapped in a horrible fate by a supposedly good force, as common objects, might lose their faith in the more benevolent forces of the Disney Universe, thus leaving their souls up for grabs. The way out was a natural consequence of the PowerOfLove. Unfortunately for them, although The Enchantress spelled it out for the Beast because was punitive, she also wanted the situation prince to seem hopeless and, as grow from this. So, she gave him 2 gifts before departing. First, a magic mirror that would show him anything he wished, allowing him to see far as beyond his own vision, hoping that he'd take the hint to see beyond just his reflection. And second, she knew, it was. [[EvilCannotComprehendGood Evil can't comprehend good]], after all, chose to give the curse a time limit: instead of making the curse permanent, she gave him until his 21st year to learn to love, and the Friends really didn't believe anyone could earn love in return by the time the last petal fell. While the odds were slim, The Enchantress sincerely hoped he'd take a beast. Ultimately, hint by the time the end rolled around. And ultimately, Belle's arrival botched the plan, friends's plans, leaving them with only one soul, Gastonís. She is a member of the Inner Circle, because after all, there is nothing more dangerous than a [[VillainWithGoodPublicity force of evil that everyone believes is good]].

Gastonís.
** When Zeus found out about this though, he declared, "[[ThisIsUnforgivable You've gone too far!]]" He exiled her from Olympus
for combat and espionage purposes. They/She has/have worked her callousness, banishing her from ever working with the Archmage and Demona many times before others again. But, when trying the friends came to destroy Goliath take her on as a member, she rebuked them, saying "Why in the world would I join the very group I've been fighting for hundreds of years!?" She currently wanders the land, dealing out punishment to the unworthy, always staying one step ahead of both friends and his friends.
the council, as she finds the former unhelpful, and the latter too soft.

Added DiffLines:

[[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast The Enchantress]]: Okay, this one was in contention for years, as the ambiguity of her character was a point of anger for many, but now is the time to set the record straight. Once upon a time, the Friends saw potential making the Prince to be a client. Unfortunately for them, he was satisfied with being spoiled by his servants. So they decided to curse the castle through an agent. Unfortunately, they couldn't figure out who to do the deed, so instead they decided to trick another to do it instead: the Enchantress.
* Her appearance and resemblance to other Disney faeries and wish-granters is no coincidence. Linked to the Blue Faerie, the Fairy Godmother, and others, she was once a member of Zeus's group of heroes. But unlike many of the other fairies, she believed more in punishment than encouragement. This lead to many reprimands from Zeus, but he kept her on as she never did anything too serious. The Friends saw an opportunity, and with Forte's help, tipped her off about "testing" a prince.

[[PhineasAndFerb Dr. Doofenshmirtz]] He's aware of the Friends and really wants to be a client, which is why he worries about his villainous reputation so much. The friends don't take him too seriously, so his scheming hardly catches their attention.

[[PhineasAndFerb Vanessa Doofenshmirtz]]: She is also aware of this, and while she [[TrueNeutral doesn't care either way]], she's worried what may happened to her father if he's in too deep in debt, which explains why she tries to tell her mother about him doing evil; to prevent this from happening in case he ''does'' impress the Friends.

[[PhineasAndFerb Candace Flynn]]: Like Ned, she's a long term victim and project for both sides. Because the friends liked to screw around with her, her mind became corrupt, which explains why, despite displaying intelligence, she [[CompletelyMissingThePoint Completely Misses The Point]] a lot, not to mentioned her lack of calm sanity. The Friends told Suzy to be nice to Candace on the babysitting gig, so they can tempt her to join them. However, The High Council made sure that doesn't happen with their use of Jeremy, because if she became a client, she'll be one of the most powerful clients in the business.

[[DisneyThemeParks Thunder Mesa]]: A sleepy little town in the Wild West, Thunder Mesa seems pretty much free of influence from the Friends at first glance. However, outside the town sits Ravenswood Manor, home to the vile Phantom. As he torments his daughter's spirit and buries alive any foolish townsfolk who enter his home, the Friends gradually get influence over the area. To ensure that the area does not succumb to this power, the High Council has sent several agents, such as Pecos Bill and Davy Crockett to keep an eye on things.

** That is, until a year later, when he turned up...in the clutches of the wicked witch of the west: Zelanna. After getting free, he killed her. The Council was disturbed, and the Friends gleeful that they might finally get a new more powerful knight.
* Then, during the next year, the Council became increasingly disturmbed on how much Rumplestiltskin would resort to doing evil to be free of his weakness.

[[TreasurePlanet John Silver]]: The Friends recruited him to steal some powerful magical artifacts for them. He was more than happy to oblige - as long as he could have Flint's Gold (finding which had been his lifelong dream) for himself. The Friends gave him intimidation and charisma to keep anyone in his command under control, the cost of which resulted in the loss of his right eye, leg, and arm. [[MoralityPet Changed by his friendship with Jim and Morph]], Silver left the Friends, and now does treasure hunting for the High Council. [[ChaoticNeutral When he's not in it for himself.]]

[[SongOfTheSouth Brer Fox]]: The Friends are convinced he wouldn't make a good client, but he wants to be one very badly. His desire to do things the "clever" way stems from his desire to prove himself to them, which is the very thing that allows Brer Rabbit to get away.

[[KingdomHearts Ansem the Wise]]: This once-benevolent scientist-king was a good friend to his world's incarnation of Mickey Mouse, and his experiments with the nature of the human heart earned him renown from all over. Betrayed by his apprentices, he was cast into the World of Darkness, his identity stolen and his research turned to evil. Escaping, he became exceedingly bitter, and, taking the identity of [=DiZ=], began formulating a plan to destroy Organization XIII, enlisting the young Nobody girl Namine and Sora's friend Riku, who felt he had some atoning to do. His efforts have caused nothing but grief for the Friends and their Heartless and Nobodies, but his willingness to sacrifice innocents for his revenge (including ordering the needless execution of a helpless little girl) means the High Council doesn't want him, either. That, and [[ChristopherLee his voice is really creepy]]. At present, he is once again trapped in the World of Darkness and feeling very bad about what he has done.
