I loved the Crossgen universe. you could also add Danik, Pyrem, Ingra, Trenin, Gannish, Orium, Solusandra, Bragg(Seahn's dad), Tulity, Raamia(Altwaal's lover for a time), Wyture(who was an avatar of Danik) and Enson who was also an avatar of Danik. I know of some more, but i have too find my old issues of the First. Excellent start though.

@RoninTheFury: Wow, thanks! I'm not familiar with these but I started reading about Atwaal and it kind of went from there.  I'll add them in and thanks again!

You may add Animora, who was an exiled member of House Sinister, and also Darrow, who was a scout sent by Ingra to observe the sigil bearer of the planet Cyress (Mystic).  Animora was a rival of Ingra's and the two fought over Darrow.  Animora lost, and was in turn cursed by Ingra to have green skin and tentacles on her head.  Afterwards, Animora tried to take over Cyress in order to harness the energies of that planet and make herself more powerful, but she was stopped by the leading wizards and witches of that planet.  
 
After the guild masters free Animora from her prison in order to ask her to kill Giselle Villard, (Mystic) Darrow changes allegiances to stand with his former love Animora once more.  Ingra, queen of House Sinister, sends further scouts to see what's going on with Darrow when he stops reporting back to her.  I don't remember the names of those scouts, but they were First, and were members of House Sinister also.
 
In "Negation," there was a secundae by the name of Iress who was one of the good guys and eventually developed powers to match Evinlea's.  She was one of the few secundae to escape the curse placed on them by the first to keep the secundae from developing their powers fully.  The other two were Persha and Seahn.
 
There was also a first member of House Dexter who was slain in the first or second issue of The First, after a confrontation with one of the sigil bearers.  I don't remember his name though.
 
In Sigil, the Saurians are shown worshiping a war-goddess who may be Ingra or Yala, but her identity is left undetermined.  The name of this goddess escapes me right now too.
 
I miss CrossGen.

@juno9: Thanks for all the help!  I'm collecting these issues right now to go back and read and was attracted by the art and descriptions.  Can't wait to read what there is to see.  Thanks for all the help!!!

In the character descriptions above, it says that Iress was a "half-blood". That assertion is mistaken. Iress was a secundae. The secundae are the children of the First. The first deliberately curse them in order to prevent them from developing their powers fully and thereby keep them from rivaling the older generation. Since they are immortal, their society cannot bear much change.

@juno9: Thanks for the tip on Iress. I copied it straight from the Wiki page here on CV so I didn't write it. When I made this list, I hadn't even read any of the comics. I'll fix it above and leave the page for someone in the know...which isn't me. :D
