Canon Hero Status & Legacies


Canon Hero Status & Legacies

Any dead, inactive or retired character without a listed successor is considered available for you to create a legacy character. If you want to be on the safe side, check with the refs first before creating a legacy character. Canon characters with currently active legacies are marked with red text for their name.

If any canon character you want to use is missing from the list, let us know and we can add it.
