Flight Sergeant Jolly briefs the Council of Twelve on the successful flight test of a ship whose engines were boosted by an Okaati Harvester's engines (Battlestar Galactica Classic #3).

During the last decades of the Twelve Colonies, President Adar oversaw the Quorum.

In 7346, Councilor Osiris represents Aeries, and is later replaced by Baltar (Battlestar Galactica: Starbuck #4).

In the aftermath of the exodus from the Colonies, the Council's newest members include Sires Anton and Geller, and Siress Tinia, who are enthralled with Parrin's proposal to conjoin the Okaati's Harvesters as booster engines to all civilian ships within the Fleet (Battlestar Galactica Classic #3). After Parrin unveils her deception, the Council finds itself at the mercy of Cylons after the Okaati deposit the Fleet's ships upon Gehenna Prime, but are saved by the Comitat during the Battle at Gehenna Prime (Battlestar Galactica Classic #5).


President Adar presides over the Quorum of Twelve before the Battle of Cimtar (Annihilation!).

The Quorum of Twelve assembles for one final time aboard President Adar's battlestar, Atlantia, to celebrate the forthcoming armistice. In attendance are Baltar, liaison between the Cylons and the Quorum, and Commander Adama and his aide de camp, Athena (Annihilation!).

Following the Battle of Cimtar, the Quorum is reconstituted with Adama as president, and Sire Uri as a representative (Exodus!).
