This is Sean Whalen (prion).

This is the list and index of all characters appearing in the Long Sun
books have been talked about in this series of letters.  Vironese
biochemical males have the names of animals or animal products. 
Vironese biochemical females have the names of plants or plant
products, with fungi being included into their definition of plants. 
Vironese chemical people are named after metals or minerals.  Names of
animals and of people from other places both in and out of the Whorl
do not conform to these patterns.

Many of the Vironese names are animals or plants from the Americas,
particularly South America.  The names of the chems are usually metals
or minerals that are easily breakable, or came about as the result of
the decay of other metals or minerals.

The characters are arranged in alphabetical order.  Their nationality,
physical composition, and sex appear in that order after their name in
abbreviated form.  For example, Abanja is a Trivigaunti biochemical
female (TBF).  Characters with no recognized nationalities appear
without any information given for that category. Characters who
formerly possessed a sex but no longer possess it are listed with the
sex they previously had. For example, Abanja is a Trivigaunti
biochemical female.  The abbreviations are as follows:


P-Pre-Whorl (Urth and others that made the Whorl)
