The characters of the Disc are many and of various races. They aren’t the same as the races in our world, but sometimes I wonder if Terry had them in mind when he was writing about his own races.
No. I don’t wonder. He did. I’m sure of it.
The lists of persons that I construct here will include references to any sentient being in the Discworld universe. I have to word it that way because otherwise some important characters would be left out in the cold.
Any such being that Terry attaches a name to will be in a list somewhere. Some are mentioned only in passing, and you never hear from them again. Others pop up much more frequently.
I will be compiling a master list of characters that shows which book(s) you can find them in. I expect it will be an unwieldy table, but I can think of no other way at the moment to handle this. And I think it will be useful enough to create.
Persons by Book
Each link in this list will take you to a detailed listing of characters in the given book. The characters will be shown either in order of appearance within that book or alphabetically.
