Indexer Notes

'Mascot' as it appears in print, suggests a media personality, similar to Milana Vayntrub playing 'the AT&T Girl Lily Adams' on television in 2013. It's unclear who filled the role of Crystal, the Wizard convention model in the 1993 era. If someone can find her identity please update this note and character list. Similarly, any character name of the Hero mascot is not known at this writing.
