The Scrollnée were a species of horned humanoids.
In the early 21st century, the Scrollnée rose against the council and deposed them. Though the council was killed trying to escape, they "survived" by force of will, as minds in animated corpses. The council, now known as the Council of Dead, searched for ways to preserve their bodies and take back their planet. (PROSE: Attack of the Snowmen)
Later, the Council of Dead planned to sell humans to the Zu'nar as slaves. Again, they tried to lure the Doctor, using his friends as bait. This time, they were defeated directly and their bodies were destroyed. (PROSE: Attack of the Snowmen)
