Character Infobox

Each article about a human character starts with the Character infobox (right). This can be done by typing:

{{Character
|name = Example
|image = [[Image:Example.png|200px]]
|gender = Example
|hair = Example
|age = Example
|job = Example
|relatives = '''Parents''':Example
|appearance = Example
}}

Role

The next section is describing their role in the series. This section is not titled.

Appearance

This section describes their appearance, as in what they look like, and what types of clothing they wear in the books. Not to be confused with the "Appearances" section

Personality

This section describes their personality.

Occupation

Occupation goes here. If the character has no occupation, describe what they are seen doing in the series.

Appearances

This section is a list of books that the character has appeared in. Any character who has appeared in more than 12 or more books should have the list of appearances in the scroll template (below). This can be done by typing:

{{Scroll

* Appearance 2
* Appearance 3
* Appearance 4
* Appearance 5
* Appearance 6
* Appearance 7
* Appearance 8
* Appearance 9

which will result in:

  • Appearance 4
  • Appearance 5
  • Appearance 6
  • Appearance 7
  • Appearance 8

    }}

Which will make:
