The Chamber of Air as seen in Warcraft

The Kirin Tor reside in the floating city of Dalaran. The Council of Six (also known as the Council of Kirin Tor and the Arch Council) rule from the Chamber of Air, located within the Violet Citadel.[1]

Members are branded on the forearm with the lidless Eye of the Kirin Tor, the symbol literally seared into their flesh by a magical white flame of uncertain properties.[2] When the member places their arm near enough, the flame snakes out and wraps around it, inscribing the pattern onto the limb. The pain is agonising and the member's flesh can be smelled as it burns.[3] The symbol not only identifies the mage as a member of the order, but can at times serve other, magical purposes.[4]

Guardian Novitiates appear to be tested for the position at the age of 11, and if successful, are branded with the Eye of the Kirin Tor.[1][5]

The Kirin Tor do not teach teleportation.[6] Medivh claims that the they fear it, and says that they should, since it is very dangerous.[6]

Council of Six

At the time of Medivh's initiation as Guardian, there are both men and women members of the Council of Six, including Archmage Antonidas and Finden.[7] Archmage Shendra was a member during Khadgar's training and is still on the Council by the time of the opening of the Great Gate.[5] It's referred to as the arch-council.

The Violet Citadel's prison level contain a magical cube of Alodi.



  • During the Guardian training, the Council of Six doesn't mention Moroes and he is aware of that.[8]
