FANDOM


This page serves as a guide when making a new character article. Sections can be omitted if there is no information to fill it. See the Manual of Style for information on how the article should be written.

Page Name Edit

All character pages should follow the "given name, family name" format. This includes characters who are from Japan/China, though a redirect in the form of "family name, given name" can be made in cases where that characters last name is more well known.

Character Infobox Template Edit

Place the Character Infobox template at the beginning of the article. Fill out the spaces provided. If you cannot place any information in a specific area, please put either "Unknown" or "N/A".

{{Infochara
| header = 
| image = 
| name = 
| age = 
| dob = 
| gender = 
| hair = 
| eyes = 
| nation = 
| status = 
| class = 
| occu = 
| title = 
| relation = 
| first = 
| last = 
}}

Additional templates Edit

The {{SI}} template is to put a word or phrase in parentheses and make it smaller. Place the template after an entry. Some potential uses are:

  • Uchida Kokenmi (father)
  • Teacher (former)
  • Yoriki (current)
  • John Smith (deceased)

The {{De}} template adds a little cross sign after a character's name. Hovering your courser over the mouse will show a "Deceased" alt text. For example:

  • Tsuchida Tokichi

These two templates can be used in conjunction with each other.

  • Freida Nolle (uncle)

Introduction Edit

Underneath the template, write one or two sentences about the character.

Example
Sano Akiko is the daughter of Sano Ichiro and Sano Reiko.

Physical Description Edit

Describe what the character looks like. Do not quote the books verbatim! This is plagiarism and can get this wiki in trouble!

Personality Edit

Describe the character's personality. Be sure to include both their positive and negative qualities.

Biography Edit

Write out the actions of the character from their point of view, presented in chronological order. If this section gets too long, make another page with this format: [[Name/Biography]]. Be sure to leave a link to that page underneath this section's header. Do not quote the books verbatim!

Skills Edit

What sort of skills does the character possess? Write what they are, making sure to cite some examples.

Relationships Edit

Write a description of the various relationships the character has with other characters. Only include characters the main subject has interacted with. The format of this section should go like this:

== Relationships ==
=== Name 1 ===
Description from the main topic's point of view.

=== Name 2 ===
Description from the main topic's point of view.

If this section gets too long, make another page with this format: [[Name/Relationships]]. Be sure to leave a link to that page underneath this section's header.

Trivia Edit

Make a list of any trivia that can be found about the character. This can range from the mundane to any information given from official sources.

References Edit

Place the {{reference}} template here. <ref></ref> is the tag used for adding a citation.

Navigation Edit

Place a navigation box here.

Status Edit

Categories that reflect the status of the article.

  • Category:Article stubs -- This is automatically added if you put the {{stub}} template at the beginning of an article. Only add this if the page has a couple sentences or a paragraph.
  • Category:Work In Progress -- This is automatically added if you put the {{WIP}} template at the beginning of an article. Only add this if the article needs more information regarding its subject. Once all its sections have been fleshed out and the only editing left are additions or minor changes (such as grammar fixes), it can be removed.
