The Covenant is the place where the greek gods off-springs could be safe. It was created in anchient times.
There are four Covenant locations, in Tennesse, South Dakota, North Carolina, and NewYork. The NewYork branch is where the Main Council is located, and the South Dakota is staged to look like a university.
A Council is made up of twelve people, ten members and two minister. This was so it could resemble the old Greek Council, where Zeus and Hera ruled, so there is one male minister and one female. There is a council at each Covenant, so there are eight Ministers that control everything.
