List of Characters: This list is provided to give background on both old and new characters. Please let me know if you someone is missing. Since I do not make it a habit to provide measurements such as bra size or length of a guy's penis when describing characters, Physical Characteristics are sometimes coded 'PC' here when it will be helpful to visualize the person.
Characters carried over from past books and mentioned by name only are listed separately at the bottom of the page, coded 'MBNO'.
