    Summary

    This is a list of the many characters (canon and not) that are presented in CLM, with their characteristics and data. I decided to make it for explaining and list the various changes that I made during the course of the fic, being this a story with a lot of chapters and events.
    The descriptions will be uploaded and edited every time a new CLM chapter will be uploaded, and I will report what are spoilers from what is not.
    Like a wiki.

    This story will be even used by me to post some of my illustrations about my story🤗🤗
