No Booker DeWitt?Edit

Looking through the track and noticed that Booker isn't listed in Non Rapture residents. Yes, I know there is listing for Booker as a Rapture resident from BaS Ep 1, but we all know he is NOT the same person as Booker from BioShock Infinite. I didn't want to add him since I ma not overly familiar with the going on with the Tracker. sm --Solarmech (talk) 12:49, May 23, 2017 (UTC)

If I recall, when I made the original Character Tracker (which was years ago) I went through the Character pages and added individuals game by game in the order they appeared going from Main, Major, Minor, and Mentioned and leaving out redundancies (persons that were mentioned in previous lists like Andrew Ryan). Naturally, Booker DeWitt was listed under Burial at Sea - Episode 1. Spoiler alert to any sap reading this without playing the games, but of course Private Investigator Booker is really Zachary Hale Comstock. Regardless of this little fact, he lived in Rapture under the name Booker DeWitt for months or even years, that appears to be canon.
The real point of the BioShock Wiki Character Tracker is simply to keep track of characters; meaning, each person should be mentioned once and only once. It'd do no good to list Booker twice under Rapture Residents as well as Non-Rapture Residents, as that'd throw off the numbers. With that in mind, I'd advocate for leaving him their. Even if his name is linked to DeWitt the Investigator, it still links to the Booker DeWitt page, which is sufficient.
