Acatalectic, by the end.
The Free Council consists of several members, across two Cabals (Unix and Minor Arcana). White Hat is their Syndic, and pushes their agenda that knowledge should be free. This puts them at odds with the other orders, espcially the Mysterium and the Guardians of the Veil. The Emissary is Syntax, who tries to soften the Free Council’s relationship with the other orders. Both mages are in the Unix cabal.
Their joining ritual is a reading of The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock.
