Notable people

So, I had a list of 290 possibles, I narrowed it down to 87 (hooray for me).
The problem I have is Quantity vs. Quality and the Faction Mapping.

So it breaks down into 4 possibilities:
1) Keep the quantity, do not map each person to a faction.
2) Keep the quantity, map each person to a faction.
3) Cut the quantity and describe each in further detail, do not map each person to a faction.
4) Cut the quantity and describe each in further detail, map each person to a faction.

What would you suggest?
