      'idx'      :integer (RO)
         Constant ID for players and for non-PCs it is the memory pointer
         converted to an integer. If there are 50 cityguards, you can use
         the idx to figure out which one you're looking for. Use 
         findsymbolic(#,#) to quickly find precisely a unit matching a 
         symbolic name and an idx. 
         Be warned, this value change between each reboot, except for players, so do not

      'master'         :unitptr (RW)
         The unitptr to the master that this CHAR is following. See also follow()
      ... And a whole slew of other fields.
