6th Character slot after server outage (CNR)

Issue Description:
I was in the process of creating a new character when the servers experienced issues today. I was logged in at the time, and able to continue despite the reported outages.
I completed character creation and opted to play the prologue.
The session failed to load, and took me back to the character select screen. My new character was not displayed.

I went through the process again and created a new character, and played the prologue.
When I returned to the character select screen later, the original “new character” was included in the list, as my 6th slot.

I’m able to fully scroll up and down the operative list, everything “functions as expected”, but chose to take the screenshot half way down, just to display the 6 portraits.
I intend to delete both “Reginald” characters, as these were just to test something
