SO -- do I sic some of them on each other?  That would eliminate them without our heroes getting the chance to do so, making for odd story twists that may decrease the drama. 

One is particularly troublesome because she's the one in power.  I may have to -- hmmm -- have her try to stop them from stopping the ones that are plotting.

But the others may find their plot erupting in their face in a way that could complicate the heroes' life enough even if it does kill them.
