Shadow Chronicles Scorecard
Look at this handy thing I made for you folks -- a chart showing every named character who appeared in Prelude to the Shadow Chronicles (except Minmei, who as you'll recall was never seen head-on), plus two individuals we know will be in the Shadow Chronicles feature, complete with "before" pictures for all the ROBOTECH animation veterans showing them as they appeared in the TV series (or in a few cases, as they appeared in the Sentinels animation or, in the case of Veidt & L'ron, comic book covers).
The thing to soak in here is that while not every character pictured will appear in the Shadow Chronicles feature, all of them (save the characters marked as "deceased") are still in play in the Shadow Chronicles era. That means they're fair game to appear in Shadow Chronicles follow-ups such as further animation, comics, or (if the current buzz is to believed) novels. Twenty-four surviving characters, only half of whom are confirmed as appearing in the animation ... you know, most of the rest of these characters have stories that aren't quite finished yet at the end of Prelude, and here's hoping that they are followed up on in one medium or another.
