List of Sidekicks

Heroines and Heroes often have great sidekicks. The top section is a list created by Tor Publishing. I though it was a good idea, so below it is a running list that gets added to. If you know of a great sidekick, please add it to the list and make sure to include it on the page to the series he or she belongs to in the World-Building section just about the Character Chart. Also, please add it to the categories of that page by typing-in and choosing  "Great Sidekicks" in the Category Box.
