Welcome to the large, long, and mostly incomplete character directory. In here you will find all characters, big and small, major and minor, pro and an, who appear in the Course Books. Eventually.
These would be all the big guys who star in their own stories or at least show up fairly often. They are the most important to the plot, and if you've already read the books you probably recognize their names. Character pages will be fourth coming, along with a list of which stories and books the particular character shows up in.
