This might be helpful for me (and anyone else who wants to contribute) to figure out what has been done and what still needs to be done. Other people may want to comment on my edits if they disagree with parts of those and whatnot.


Things of note I did recently:
-Complete rework and expansion of the "Anasūrimbor Theliopa" page
-Creation of the "Nameless one" page
-Creation of the "Nersei Miramis" page (I might have messed up a bit with this one, as I named it just "Miramis" at first and only changed the name later on)
-Creation of the "Nersei Xinemus" page
-Creation of the "Nersei Thaila (younger)" page
-Creation of the "Nersei Thaila (elder)" page
-Expansion of the "Appearance" sections of the "Anasūrimbor Kayūtas", "Anasūrimbor Serwa", "Anasūrimbor Inrilatas", "Anasūrimbor Kelmomas" and "Anasūrimbor Samarmas" pages
-Expansion of the "Iėva" page
"But you’ve simply made the discovery that Thelli made—only without the benefit of her unerring sense of fashion."
-Anasūrimbor Kayūtas (The Great Ordeal, chapter 13)

"You prefer to believe women victims to their passions, but we can be at least as calculating as you. Love does not make us weak, but strong."

Great work, TOT.

As time allows, I'll make these my wiki perusals and see if I can offer anything to sharpen your entries.

Thanks, Madness! :)


Progress as of March 4, 2018:
-Rewrite and expansion of the "Appearance" section of the "Anasūrimbor Moėnghus II" entry
-Further expansion of the "Appearance" section of the "Anasūrimbor Kayūtas", "Anasūrimbor Serwa", "Anasūrimbor Kelmomas" and "Anasūrimbor Samarmas" (mostly to add information from TUC)


I would also like to get some opinions on a few things I've thought about:
-First of all, I'm thinking of eventually creating pages for individuals whose names are never given in the series, but have some importance (and are mentioned more often than some named characters that have glossary entries...). I was mainly thinking of characters such as Cnaiür's mother, her child by Moėnghus (I created a page for the "nameless one", so it's fair for this child to get one too), Xerius' father, Xerius' brother (Conphas' father), maybe Sorweel's mother as well.
-Considering the new information we got on Nau-Cayūti from TUC, would his actual year of death be 2143 (when he was presumably inserted into the Carapace) or 2155 (when the No-God was destroyed)? It's not entirely clear whether the person that gets placed into the Carapace is still "alive" in some sense of the word.

I just wanted to tune in and say that I appreciate very much everything you're doing, ThoughtsOfThelli! It's really great that someone is working on the wiki, and in such a considered manner, no less.

Recent updates (from March 7, 2018):
-Expansion of the "Appearance" section of the "Mimara" page
-Addition of the "Mimara" page to the "Prophets" category (usually I don't mention category updates here, as I don't think they're important enough, but I felt this one was relevant)

(Everyone take a deep breath, this is an extensive one...)

Update, March 17, 2018:
-Updated the character list by adding 329(!) new characters (names of characters added under spoiler tag, as they are so many). Only names were added so far: brief descriptions and actual entries (if they do not exist already) will come later.
(click to show/hide)
-Changed "Tuthorsa" to "Beotha Tuthorsa" in the character list and renamed his wiki entry; also made some small edits to said entry.
-Changed "Kushigas" to "Ersa Kushigas" in the character list and renamed his wiki entry; also made some small edits to said entry.
-Changed "Imhailas" to "Gawol Imhailas" in the character list and renamed his wiki entry; also made some small edits to said entry.
-Changed "Shinurta" to "Khui Shinurta" in the character list.
-Changed "Semper" to "Midru Semper" in the character list and renamed his wiki entry; also made some small edits to said entry.
-Changed "Iyengar" to "Nūkulk Iyengar" in the character list and renamed his wiki entry; also made some small edits to said entry.
-Eskeles was in the character list twice, as "Eskeles" and "Thanteus Eskeles", so I deleted the former.
-Conger was misspelled as "Konger" in the character list, corrected that and changed his entry to the "C" section of the list.
-Oxwora was misspelled as "Oxwara" in the character list, corrected that.


EDIT: Did some work in the "A" section:
-In general - edited some already existing information and added links.
-Added brief descriptions (with help from the TUC glossary) to the following characters: Abbarsallas, Aisarinqu, Aisralu, Amrezzer the Black, Anasūrimbor Koringhus, Anasūrimbor Nanor-Mikhus, Anasūrimbor Nanor-Ukkerja VI, Aratrula the Mad, Aulyanau Cawa-Imvullar and Avalunsil.


EDIT #2:
-Added brief descriptions (again, thanks, TUC glossary!) to the following characters in the list: Borswelka IV, The Boy, Cet'moyol, Damial'isharin, Davdūl, Farjanjua, Kuxophus II, Linqirū, Lurijara, Masurkur, Moryror, Narunshinde, Oirasis, Symaul, Tsinirū, Ūlkū'kolil, Virimlū, Wulta-Ongorean, Xarah Wab-wabi and Yi'yariccas.
-Also edited Oirinas and Oirūnas' descriptions to match the information from their TUC glossary entries.


EDIT #3:
-Added brief descriptions to the remaining characters in the "A" section: Aälsa, Aelswė, Amakūnir, Amarsla, Anchilas, Ars Sibbul, Asward, Aurili and Avarartu. Meaning the "A" section of the list is now complete in terms of descriptions (though 23/66 characters in this section don't yet have wiki entries).



And now, a small request from me: anyone who wants to volunteer to help me out and add brief descriptions/create articles for some of the characters listed above is very welcome!
I figured out which ones were missing from the wiki list through a full list of my own I created back in November/December, which has information about the books/short stories said characters appear/are mentioned in. So you can just ask me if you want to help and can't remember in which book character X appeared/don't feel like looking it up. Quite a few of these characters are just mentioned once or twice in the whole series, so creating entries and so on wouldn't really be hard work.

Update as of March 19, 2018 (as I think I've already made too many edits to my previous post):
-Looking at my own character list, I realized some characters had slipped through the cracks (Anarlū, Arishal, Cūncari, Cundraul III, Girummū Tansiri and Mbotetulu) so I added those.
-Added brief descriptions to Anarlū, Arishal, Enpiralas, Par’sigiccas, Pil’kmiras, Rama and Tinnirin (the latter five are mentioned in The Four Revelations of Cinial'jin/Four Revelations).
-Later on, I also added "Nameless one" and Zikas to the list and provided brief descriptions for both.


Trivia for anyone who's curious: there are now 808 characters (or groups of characters, as it is the case for, say, the Mutilated or the Zikas) included in the list.
This number will most likely still grow, as a) more characters might have gone unnoticed, b) I've had the idea of making pages for some unnamed characters for some time now (as I mentioned in a previous post), and c) I have not added any characters from The Knife of Many Hands or The Carathayan as I have not read those stories (though I'm assuming that a few characters in the wiki list that weren't on mine are from one or both of those stories?).

Update as of March 20, 2018:
-Added brief descriptions to all characters still missing one in the "B" (Bansipitas, Baribul, Bastion, Belmorn, Beotha Tūtmor, Biaxi Tarpellas, Bompothur and Byrikki), "C" (Callustras, Carū-Ignaini, Caxes Anthirul, Cel-Ongonean, Charampa, Chassain, Cilcūliccas, Cinial'jin, Clia Saxillas, Coithus Agabon, Coithus Narnol, Couras Nantilla, Cratianas, Cu'cirrurn, Cu'cūlol, Cu'huriol, Cu'mimiral, Cūncari, Cundraul III and Cutias Pansulla), "D" (Daybreak, Denthuel, Diremti brothers and Droettal) and "E" (Ekompiras, Ekyannus IX, Eliriqū, Emansi, Embas Eswarlū, Emburalk, Engūs, Epithiros, Eppaltros, Erathius, Ersa Homirras, Erydides, Escalumis, Eselos Mursidides and Ettwė Cundulkas) sections.
-Also did some editing in all already existing descriptions in those sections. Mainly added a few links (there might be way too many links on that page now, but whoever wants to edit next can feel free to remove them as they like) and kept the descriptions simple enough to avoid spoilers, such as mentions of the character in question's death (I think those should be limited to the character's wiki entry). For instance, concerning Aėngelas, I changed it from "A Werigdan warrior, interrogated and killed by the Consult" to just "A Werigdan warrior".



Update as of March 21, 2018:
-Added brief descriptions to all characters still missing one in the "F" (Feather and Foolhardy), "G" (Gaes Siklar, Galian, Gam, Gamag Nikussis, Gamarrah, Gangini, Ganus the Blind, Ganyama, Gaunum Barastas, Gaunum Peristus, Gavarus, Girūmmū Tansiri, Goettal Ekirick, Gora'jirau, Grinar Halikimmū, Grutha Pirag and Gwanwė), "H" (Hagazioz, Hagnar the Elder, Halas Siroyon, Hampei Sompas, Hapama Mopuraul, Harapior, Harlikarut urs Oknai, Hatturidas, Haubrezer, Hem Shibbo, Hem-Maristat, Hemrūt ab Urmakthi, Herea, Heresius, Hiappus Irsalfus, Hiliapos, Hilikas, Hilu Akamis, Hintarates, Hirengar, Hish, Hoat, Horjon, Hosūtil, Hringa Vūkyelt, Hūnovis, Hunrilka and Hūtta-mimot), "I" (Iblil'accullil, Iėrus Ilimenni, Ikkorl, Ilbaru, Ileni, Ils Hidarei, Im'inaral Lightbringer, Immiriccas, Impalpotas, Inrilil ab Cinganjehoi, Isholom, Issiral, Iswa and Iswolor), "J" (Jishamurtė, Jiss, Jukan, Juraleal and Juru) and "K" (Kakaliol, Keles Musyerius, Kemrates Danidas, Kensooras, Kima, Koracales, Krijates Empharas, Krū Gai and Ku'kumammu) sections.
-Again, also did some general editing to other entries in those sections, along the same lines as what was mentioned above.

Update as of March 23, 2018:
-Noticed there was a character (Domilli) that hadn't been included, so I added him(?) to the list
-Added brief descriptions to all characters still missing one in the "L" (Ligesseras Arnius, Likaro and Linnū Arcastor), "M" (Maharta, Maranjehoi, Massar ab Kascamandri, Matmuth Ramgath, Matmuth Shorathises, Mbotetulu, Mebbee, Memplei Larsippas, Mepmerat, Meremnis, Merempompas, Migagurit urs Shanyorta, Mimomitta, Mimotil Cravenhearted, Minachasis, Mipharal, Mipharses, Mi'punial, Mirathais, Mirinqū, Mirūnwe, Mittades, Modhoraparta, Moimoriccas, Moithural, Morimhira, Mud Waigwa, Mu'miorn, Murathaur, Musammu Ezsiru, The Mutilated and Myrathimi), "N" (Naff, Namogritti Chorgah, Narsheidel, Nemukus Mirshoa, Nepimit Arsoghul, Nersei Miramis, Nersei Thaila (elder), Nersei Thaila (younger), Nersei Xinemus, Nganka'kull ut Imbaroon, Niehirren Halfhand, Nikkyūmenes, Niminian, Ninar, Nincama-Telesser, Nin'ciljiras, Nin'sariccas, Nirimenes, Niz-Hū, Nomiyal, Noon, Nuharlal Shukla, Nūkulk Osfringa, Nulla Vogneas, Nume and Nurbanu Ze), "O" (Obotegwa, Obwė Gūswuran, Ogadūl the Great, Oinaral Lastborn, Okkiür, Olissis, Omirji, Omrain, Orosis, Orsuleese the Faster, Orsuwick, Osilwas, Osseoratha, Lord Ostaroot, Ostaroot Tasweer and Othkut), "P" (Pafaras, Panarossa, Parmerses, Parsalates, Phiolos, Pim, Pirmees, Polpi Tharias, Porsi, Posodemas, Possu Hurminda, Powtha Iskaul and Puskarat), "R" (Rainon, Rash Soptet, Risaphial and Rūnidil) and "S" (Sadu'waralla ab Daza, Sampė Ussiliar, Sampileth Fire-singer, Sapharal, Saranjehoi, Sarpella, Sasal Charapatha, Sasal Umrapathur III, Scroll, Seratantas III, Serwė (skin-spy), Shilka Grimmel, Shimbor, Shoddū Akirapita, Shoddū Rapita III, Sholis Meerskatu, Shoss, Shressa Xinoyas, Sibawūl te Nurwul, Sirpal Onyarapū, Sirro, Skunxa, Skūtsa the Elder, Sokwė, Sosering Rauchurl, Sristai Croimas, Stubborn, Suberd, Sucoithus Hingeath, Sūjara-nin, Sumajil ut Hest, Surxacer, Sut Keopsis, Swanostol and Swayal) sections.
-Again, did some editing to other descriptions in those sections, etc., you know the rest.



For some reason, I can't get the links to the pages "Cū'jara-Cinmoi" and "Zsoronga ut Nganka'kull" to work within the character list page. And yes, I'm 99% sure I was spelling those names right at the time. Anyone think they can help with that?

Update as of March 24, 2018:
-Added brief descriptions to characters still missing one in the "T" (Temus Enhorū, Thassius, Thipil Mepiro, Thirūmmū Sek, Thurhig Bogyar, Tikirgal ab Ramitju, Tinurit, Tsilarcus, Tsonos, Tūborsa Hurm, Tusullian, Tynwur and Tzing), "U" (Ūliqara, Urbommū Adokarsa, Urbommū Hamazrel, Urdrūsū Marsalees, Urmakthi ab Makthi, Urskrux and Ūster Scraul), "V" (Valsarta, Vippol the Elder and Vūgalharsa), "W" (Weodwa, Weyukat, Wiglic, Wobazul, Woyengar, Wraelinu, Wulgulu and Wustamitas), "X" (Xarotas Harnilas), "Y" (Yagthrūta, Yapotis, Yatiskeres and Yerajaman) and "Z" (Zabwiri and Zerxei Triamarius II) sections of the character list.
-Again, pre-existing descriptions also subject to edit, same as before.


This means that the character list is officially up to date! (for now, at least)


Phase 2: Create wiki articles for characters who don't have one yet (391 out of the 809 characters in the list according to my calculations). Help is appreciated!

Update as of March 26, 2018:
-Created pages for the Company of Scions and the Stone Hags. Both are still fairly incomplete, consisting only of information from the TUC glossary, lists of known members and little more.
-Also updated the "Known Members" section of the "Skin Eaters" page.



Update as of March 27, 2018:
-Heresius was mistakenly listed as a member of the Skin Eaters instead of the Stone Hags in the character list; fixed that and added him to the "Known Members" section on the "Stone Hags" page.
-Did some editing on the "House Trimus", "House Biaxi", "House Zerxei", "House Ikurei", "Trimus Charcharius" and "Houses of the Congregate" pages.

Update as of March 28, 2018:
-Created "House Daskas", "House Kiskei", "House Ligesseras", "House Gaunum" and "House Israti" pages. Not too much to say on most of those, short wiki articles overall. (I think that what else we learn from Serwė's POV about the members of House Gaunum should be left to the future specific character pages.)

Oh, I see you are now an Admin of the Wiki.

So much work, so little appreciation. Keep it up Thelli, you're awesome.
One of the other conditions of possibility.
