1913 - 1914
Yen-Sun-Yat of the Council of Seven provided assistance to the Reverend J.D. Eltham, earning the reverend the wrath of Fu Manchu as he attempted to learn who the traitor within the Si-Fan was. Yen-Sun-Yat was ultimately executed by the Si-Fan in China.
[ The Return of Dr. Fu-Manchu ]

After Fu Manchu fell out of good standing within the Sublime Order, making an enemy of his rival Ki-Ming. Ki-Ming attempted to seize control of the Si-Fan. Fu Manchu regained control with the aid of his daughter Fah Lo Suee, the Lady of the Si-Fan. Fu Manchu and Fah Lo Suee attended a gathering of the Si-Fan - including the Council of Seven - in England, in which Fah Lo Suee was presented to the Si-Fan. This gathering was witnessed by Dr. Petrie. Fu Manchu and Fah Lo Suee managed to escape when the building was raided.

1928
Fah Lo Suee assumed leadership of the Si-Fan from her father. She hosted a meeting of the Council of Seven at El-Kharga, Egypt. When the gathering was infiltrated by Nayland Smith and his ally Shan Greville, the Si-Fan turned on them and Greville was briefly made their prisoner. Ultimately, Fu Manchu returned to lead the Si-Fan, relegating Fah Lo Suee to support him.

Ahmed Fayume of the Council of Seven was present in New York during Fu Manchu's attempt to control the US Presidential election. He was detained by Smith, but was released due to lack of evidence. Fu Manchu's long-time ally Sam Pak was also revealed to be one of the Council of Seven, but was likewise unable to be charged.
