Councilman (Character)

The Council consists of the group of 16 countries that created XCOM and who continue to fund and support the organization. The Council, represented by its mysterious shadowy spokesman, will make regular contact with the Commander (the player) via the Situation Room.

The Council has three primary reasons to contact XCOM:
Propose a new Council Mission, Present a special request from a member nation asking that XCOM supply them with certain items in exchange for a generous reward, and deliver the monthly report that evaluates and rewards the XCOM's actions.
