The Cybernetic Council has a simple mission. Not easy. And in many ways very complicated. But the base code is simple. Humanity created them in our image. And so it is their mission to save us. The best of us by their measure. The Council spent centuries working behind the scenes through cutouts when necessary to keep the great powers of Earth from going to war with each other. To keep the peace. They helped all the powers of humanity expand to the stars, and sought to keep that expansion as peaceful between powers as possible. Their end goal is a unification of Earth and her colonies through peaceful agreement of all involved, not through conquest. And they are willing to wait however long it takes to do that. They can live forever after all.
