Characters Return After Exit Animation


I am trying to have illustrated characters turn to the side they will exit to (state side perspective) and then exit. I have them staggered when coming in, and then I have state change on all to face front. I want them to turn to leave and have their exit staggered as well. At first all the characters left, came back, and then their exit states executed. So I figured out that you have to subtract the duration of the exit animation from the timeline and trigger the state to change at the timeline end minus animation duration.

Now I have all characters working except for one--the first character to exit. I added a trigger to change her state to hidden right after her timeline ends, but that didn't work. I'm guessing it's due to the timeline being several sections after her timeline ends, but I'm not sure.

Perhaps an article exists on using multiple characters, exit animations, and states?
