who were lost to us
There is a character list for helping with identifying important and semi-important characters. Don't twist your head trying to keep every character straight. Continually referring to the list is not necessary. As you read along, characters who are meant to matter a lot will become obvious. On the other hand, I, myself, love character lists because I like to refresh myself on how characters look. Maybe you do too.
For the character list,
