A    B    C    D    E    F    G    H    I    J    K    L    M    N    O    P    Q    R    S    T    U    V    W    X    Y    Z    Legend
Note: Book numbers shown with a capital M (M23) indicate a major character in that book. Book numbers shown with a small m (m23) indicate just a mention of that character. Characters are considered included in a book if they are mentioned or are in the current area.
The Database does not allow duplicates between Character and Species. Since the author does occasionally repeat Characters within a species, all duplicates will have something in brackets[] after the Character Name; an abbreviated book title. Example: The first Astrid/Crossbreed will be Astrid [FAG] for the Astrid in Fawn And Games, where she appears, and the second Astrid/Crossbreed will be Astrid [BS] for the Astrid in Board Stiff, the first book in which she appears. If the Character duplicate is in the same book, it will get a 1, 2, etc. and the book abbveviation. Example: Well-Tempered Clavicle has 2 Aaron/Human. They will be Aaron 1 [WTC] and Aaron 2 [WTC].
