So far a lot of good guesses and queries have been made. 6 of the 10 have been guessed, and a lot of information about the rest is dug out. Keep up the good work!

The ones remaining are:
2. Living, Near Future, SF, Human Male, from written fiction, variety of odd jobs, including concert promoter, doesn't have green skin and isn't married to a witch.
4. Living, Contemporary, Fantasy, Human (with non-human abilities) Male, TV, and I don't know the occupation, not Vincent from Beauty and the Beast
8. Living, Future, SF, Human Male, TV, explorer, from Lost in Space, but not either of Dr Smith or Dr John Robinson.
10. Dead, Future, SF, Human Female, movies, safety inspector (I think). Not Ellen Ripley from Alien

The guessed ones are:

1. Brother Cadfael, gotten by acelighting
3. Meredith Grey from Grey's Anatomy, guessed by skitten
5. Pris from Bubblegum Crisis/Crash, figured out by aylinn
6. Kennet R'Yal Shardik, gotten by kinsfire
7. Tony Stark, gotten by theentwife
9. Princess Leia Organa, gotten by theentwife

When listing if they are from written, comic, TV, or movies, I'm only listing their initial incarnation. Some have appeared in more than one medium; I haven't listed them all.

(*) See comments for more detailed answers.

I'll update this with correct guesses and summaries of the clues.

Questions Asked:
(a) Which people in the list are dead by the end of the story or series in which they appear?
(b) what time periods are the people in?
(c) Which characters are from Fantasy, Science Fiction, or Mystery genres?
(d) Which characters are Male and which are Female?
(e) Which characters are not human?
(f) which characters are "Mary Sue"s of the authors?
(g) Which characters are originally from written fiction, which originally from television, which originally from comic books, which from radio, which from folk tales, and which from "other"?
(h) How are these characters employed?

The remaining questions asked so far are about specific characters and are reflected in the above tables (With some trimming... skitten asked a lot about the show #8 was from before hitting the right one. No need to say it's not A, B, or C when the show is already revealed.

I'll add a hint or two: #10 is from an obscure movie from a famous director, and is not the title character. The series #4 is from has been off the air for a decade, but had an active fandom while it was on.

I expect #8 to be solved by the time I get up in the morning. There's not a lot of character choices left. ;-).

is #2 Jake Stonebender (from Spider Robinson's Callahan's books)?

I expect #8 to be solved by the time I get up in the morning ;-).

Another guess then . . .

8. Doctor Zachary Smith


An addendum to my above comment:

8. If it's not Dr. Smith, then it's Doctor John Robinson. (Not many other potential choices here . . . )

Also, another guess:

4. Vincent, from Beauty and the Beast


okay, okay - #5 - Pris of the Knight Sabers from whichever iteration of Bubblegum crisis/crash is your favorite.

It's not Dr John Robinson, either. I think that realistically narrows it down to one other potential choice.

And it isn't Vincent, either.

Unfortunately for you, she got it first. But it was Pris.
