I've received a question or two about characters in my novel, and figured now was a good time to answer them. Here is some quick information about many of the novel's key characters, their status at the end of the book, and a fun fact or two.
Of course, this contains SPOILERS for the entire novel. If you haven't finished the book, turn back now.
