The Many-Hued Peacock Society was known for their centuries-long plots. This derived also from the fact that most of the members of the Inner Council were more than 100 years old.
The Many-Hued Peacock Society was the oldest secret society in Shou Lung. Curiously, in its pursuit of its goals of destroying the Empire's bureaucracy, the Many-Hued Peacock Society had been indirectly and directly responsible for saving the Empire from destruction more than once. In their conflict with Shou Lung's Royal Vagabonds, they ruined some of plots of the Gorath, who had menaced the integrity of the Empire.
