|— O5 Council|
The O5 Council is one of the two legislative bodies of the SCP Foundation and is the most senior of the two. The O5 Council is responsible for the entire foundation and can pass laws, generally approving them from the Administrative Assembly. They are widely regarded, and rightfully so, as among the most powerful, if not the most powerful, and influential individuals on the planet to the point where they could outright alter history itself if they so wished. They keep watch over everything and everyone that has a certain experience and history dealing with anomalous entities and objects.
Being the overseers of the Foundation, they have unlimited access to all information about anomalies and Foundation-operations. Due to their nature, they can be either allies or antagonists, although they have very questionable morals to the point of outright malevolence, they are mostly regarded as overarching antagonists.
Despite their power, their authority is below that of the Ethics Commitee and The Administrator.
