    From the documentation, characters_event ignores all c: commands except c:limit, c:join, and c:tree the same as event. So if you join it to something else, you will get every column from characters_event.

    Essentially, it cant be done from a pure API call perspective. Can you do anything in your application layer to only utilize the data you need?

    Yea, I've done the parsing manually in my application, but I figured it would be less taxing on the server if I only had it return what I need, instead of extra unused data.
