PRONUNCIATION OF CHARACTER NAMES

Just in case you are curious about how the characters' names sound, I have tried to come up with an English version which offers the closest pronunciation to its Chinese counterpart. If you know how to read pinyin, I have included that as well. ^_^ Alternatively, you can use the Google Translate voice output function to hear what the names sound like. 

I will try to update this list every 10 chapters or so, along with the Character Glossary.
