It's been five years since my last character chart and ten years since my very first chart, so I've been making this new one, with all the new characters that have been added to the Waniverse since 2013. I also added last names to characters who previously didn't have one. Over the years, these characters developed, evolved, and changed drastically. Some ideas were dropped while others were expanded on. Here's a quick updated list of all of them, including ten brand new characters being formally introduced on FA for the first time on the chart:
