You're wasting your time on forums. Your place is in academia where you'd get a brilliant career nitpicking in the Comparative Literatures Dept. You'd have a field day on the 18th/19th centuries French novels, Dickens, and any of the Russian lit. monuments.
To go back to the point you are making, I tend to think that these characters were minor, not in the sens that they never got to center stage (they did at times), but because they only had one important but fleeting purpose in the story and, once they had served that purpose, developing retroactively their characters would have distracted from the grand saga of the elves of the World of Two Moons. Several talented fans have written fanfics to further develop those characters which they found interesting or attaching. You could maybe browse through them. I doubt they will reappear in the last arc of EQ, but then I'm no seer and I could be very wrong.
