Author's Notes

  I didn't realize how many characters are in this story until I put them into a chart. Yow! To be fair, there are a handful I invented because they were needed and a bunch I took from other parts of the Quintan Posthomerica because I wanted them to be better established, but also there are some I dropped completely because they were superfluous.   Are you confused yet? Let me know in the comments!
