Tracking Characters

I’d like to find a way to identify the (in my case) chapters in which any particular character appears or is mentioned. Yes, I realize I can always just search, but I suspect that there are ways to do this using meta-data tags. I have all of my characters in a folder in the binder. Ideally, I could link and colour code them. Any ideas and step-by-step instructions are appreciated.

This is what keywords are for. – Katherine

Here’s a worked example…
