AC1 The Shady Dragon Inn (Basic D&D) – D&D Wiki
Starting in TSR published a series of dravon Accessories’ that ran the gamut from character sheets and Dungeon Master screens to collections of spells and magic items. Today we’ve got the first of these, AC1: Adventurers in their natural habitat As the cover advertises, this is primarily a collection of pregenerated characters for use in your campaign.

As far as the development of Mystara, nothing here really contributes to the setting. Some of the characters do show up as pregens in future adventure modules; I know that X6: Apart from that none of them enter into the ongoing setting that I know of. That’s as close as it comes to being made canon in the setting. Coming up with NPCs on the fly, especially good names for NPCs, has always given trouble so a list of ready made characters to fall back on would have been useful.
