These are the distinctive silhouettes of the Council members, ordered approximately as their screens are displayed in the Chamber Sub Rosa, although their positioning sometimes shifts, even within the same scene. It is speculated that the councilmen's numbering runs counter-clockwise around the room, starting from the silhouette with the antenna helmet, which fits with the known numbers of councilmen in most, though far from all, views of the screen layout.
According to the Season 2 commentary, the majority of the silhouettes are recycled character designs with added hats, hoods, spikes or horns. As such, not all the council members are necessarily completely fleshed out characters, and resemblance to other characters may be due to the recycled designs, and not because those characters are members of the council.

O.S.I.'s process of elimination
O.S.I has put together a board with the silhouettes of the council of 13 in the hopes of deducing which silhouette corresponds with a known villain.
The first row from left to right represents councilmen 1-4 as 1-3 match the 3 councilmen we know have those numbers and possess those silhouettes. The picture for the 4th Councilman was no longer needed as the O.S.I. had learned Councilman 4 was Boggles the Clue Clown and he was dead. The second row presumably represents councilman 5-8 and Dragoon whose silhouette is represented is indeed councilman 8. The third row presumably represents councilman 9-12. We know from the credits that the female member is Councilwoman 11 which matches where her silhouette is located on the board. The David Bowie shapeshifter the Sovereign is presumably the 13th member.
New Council of 13
Following the Gargantua-2 incident, the deaths of half the Council and the Sovereign, Dr. Henry Killinger established a new Council of 13 and their new base on Meteor Majuere. He then left the New Council to its own devices and to choose the rest of its members.
