The Founding Seven was the term that the Templars gave to the seven founding members of their order. Their number was the reason that the Twilight Council had seven members up until the creation of the ranks of Kage Luminis and Kage Umbris. The seven members were Leor Danal, Derak Ja'huni, Dade Leviathan, Jonah Kass, Arla Kress, Tera Byssta, and Arlac Thene. Other than Dade Leviathan, all of the other members were Jedi at the time. They broke away from the Jedi and after finding Dade and being led to Zonama Sekot, founded the Templars of Twilight.
