Gonzalo is the counselor. The play says that putting Prospero on the island was his idea, I'm thinking that the others wanted to kill him. He basically spared Prosperos' life. He also gave Prospero all of his books ecause he knew how much he valued them. Let's not get it twisted though, Gonzalo was still a conspirator.
