I am looking for a word or phrase which would identify a book index that would describe "what happened next" to some of the individuals mentioned in the book. "Dramatis personae" doesn't do it because the book is non-fiction. "List of Characters" won't do it because not all the characters are listed. It's not properly an index because there's no reference to the text, just a short paragraph describing what happened to the principal individuals after the events mentioned in the text. This is often seen in film. I'm looking for suggestions.

Epilogue usually refers to events that wrap up after the climax of a story.
