The Council of Cloven Elders is a council made up of satyr honorary members whose main duty is to abide over the satyrs' search for Pan. The council deems satyrs worthy or unworthy of a searcher's license which allows the satyrs to search for Pan. To achieve a searcher's license, a satyr must be successful as a keeper, and bring a demigod to Camp Half-Blood alive. The council will then decide whether or not the quest was successful. The council resides in a forum in the woods of Camp Half-Blood.
The council first appears and is named during Grover's trial. They do not believe that Pan has spoken to Grover. They give Grover an ultimatum: find proof of Pan in one week or lose your searcher's license. In attendance at the trial were Percy Jackson, Clarisse La Rue, Annabeth Chase, and Juniper. Later when Grover returns with news that Pan is dead, the council does not believe him. Dionysus believes him and says that the council should too. The council ties in vote of whether or not to exile Grover because Dionysus' vote is worth two. The satyrs then split into two groups, one that follows the council and one that follows Grover.
The council does not appear in whole as most of them were scared off by the coming of the Titan lord Kronos. When Juniper asks Leneus about what had happened to Grover, Percy pushes him over and tells him to act like a leader and lead. Leneus of the council comes over to Grover's side, and helps in the final battle against the Titan army, but then dies in battle. At the end of the battle, Grover is rewarded with a seat on the council.
