This template is all-inclusive with every field available across all character infobox templates. Whenever possible, use a category-specific character template. Use this template when a character does not belong to an existing stand-alone template character category (e.g. Nobles, Commoners, Rogues) or if the character requires specific fields that do no appear in their category-specific template.


    • The position field is for nobles or royals who hold a specified post, like "King's Champion" or "Governor".
    • The posservice field is for time of service in the positions listed in the "position" field. Only use if there is a single position listed. If multiple positions are listed in the "position" field, add comments after each position with the dates of service. Number of years, or dates of service are appropraite. If service is still on-going, used "-present" in this field or as a comment to a position.
    • The pospredecessor and possuccessor fields are for predecessors and succcessors to positions listed in the "position" field. If either is unknown, leave that field blank.

General Info

  • General Character Information
    • The image field, like all other fields, should be left blank if not available.
    • The name field defaults to the name of the article. It may be changed to the most common name used to refer to the character in the novels, i.e. Baird of Queenscove's "name" field should be "Duke Baird". The infobox name should fit on a single line.
      • Courtesy titles, such as "Prince" Rubinyan or "Lady" Gwynnen, should be included with the character's name in the title of their infobox.
    • The three color fields only appear in certain templates. In a template where they are available, follow the color rules set out for that template. For use in the "Character" template, see the "Proposed Color Schemes" section.
    • The universe field should be "Tortallan Universe" or "Circle Universe".
Biographical Information
  • Biographical Information and Physical Description
    • The alias field should only be used for names used by a character that would not be considered nicknames or epithets (e.g. The Whisper Man, Alan, or Aly Homewood). Nicknames and epithets belong in their respective fields.
    • The nationality field should only be used if a character's nationality is known. If a character changed nationalities, the newest should be listed first with previous nationalities separated by line breaks. If a character's nationality is not known, leave the field blank.
    • The death field should be left blank if the character is still alive. Use "unknown" if this information is not known.
    • The race field should be left blank unless a character belongs to a race such as "Bazhir", "K'mir", or "Banjiku". These are races that are different from nationalities.
    • The gift field is for the color of a Tortallan character's magic. Use "unknown" if this information is not known, or leave blank if the character has no Gift.
    • The othertrait field is for defining physical characters that do not fall into the other Physical Description categories (e.g. scars, tattoos, missing finger).

Magical Information

    • The magic field is for whether or not they have academic or ambient magic
    • The "magtype" is reserved for those with ambient magic; specifically say what exact type it is here, not their specialty.
    • "magrank" is for what ranking the mage has, if they're a great mage or well-known
    • magschool is for what magical institution or temple from which they received their credentials
    • magteacher for their primary and secondary teachers
    • magstudent if they have a magical student.
    • magcredential—they degree that they earned for their magic (e.g. mages' credential, master's credential, mage's license.)
    • The specialty field is for academic and ambient mages who have used their magic to come to a specialty. Do not say generic things here (e.g. green magic—as that is reserved for "magtype"). Say specifically what the mage specializes in (e.g. Shakkan trees, medicines,
    • The creations field is specific to the Circle Universe for magical creations made by mages.
Family info
  • Family Information
    • The house field is for noble or royal families, such as the "Conté family" or the "Trebond family".
    • For most names in all family information fields should be written using the most recent name of the character. Exceptions made on a case-by-case basis.
    • Use a † symbol after the names of all characters who are deceased when last mentioned in the novels. This symbol should not be used for characters who were alive when last seen, even if they would be dead in current times. Do not use † in 5th century Tortallan Universe character infoboxes simply because the referenced character lived in the 3rd century; only use it if the referenced character died during the period of time covered in the 3rd century-based novels.
    • When using the ancestors, descendents, and other fields, comments should be placed after the names to indicate known relationships (e.g. "great-uncle", "second cousin"). If a character's direct relationship is not known, no comment should be added.
    • The ancestors field is for individual character names, not family lineages. Family lineages belong in the "house" field, with the most recent listed first and previous houses separated by line breaks.
    • The siblings, children, adoptive children, grandchildren, descendants, godschildren, and other fields should be organized top to bottom, eldest to youngest, with each name separated by a line break.
    • The animals field is for horses/pets and should include a comment stating the type of animal. ex: (dog)
    • The patron is field is for patron gods of characters, e.g. "Kyprioth" for George or "Great Mother Goddess" for Alanna.
General affiliation
  • Affiliation
    • The rank field can be used to state classes (noble, common, merchant, etc) or temple/school position (initiate, dedicate, etc).
    • The residence field may be used for a specific building, i.e. the Tortallan Royal Palace", or simply a location/city/town/country, i.e. Queensgrace.
    • The occupation field is for commoners or those nobles who work for a living (teacher, seamstress, baker, etc).
    • The affiliation field is for associated unrelated persons or for events or places with which the character is connected.
    • "Militaryrank" field should be used to state military rank (e.g. sergeant, corporal, etc.)
    • The "combat" field is for battles/wars the mage has been in
Guards section
  • Provost's Guard
    • The guardrank field should only be used to state Provost Guard rank (e.g. desk sergeant, senior dog, etc).
    • The guarddistrict field is specific for Provost Guards guard districts. To specific a district for a character not of the Provost's Guard, use the "district" field.
    • The badge field is specific to Provost Guards. Use "unknown" if the guard's badge type is not known.
    • The "investigation" field is for any investigations they have done. This can also go into events, but it is intentionally more specific.
    • The events field is to be used in a similar fashion as the "combat" field under Military Affiliation, but for event in which Provost Guards participated, e.g. the Bread Riot. For non-Guard events, use the "affiliation" field.
  • Appearances
    • The firstmentioned field should only be used if a character was mentioned before their first appearance. Use if the book where the character is first mentioned differs from the book in which they first appear.
    • The lastmentioned field should only be used if a character was mentioned after their last appearance.
    • The onlymentioned field should only be used if a character is mentioned in only one book and has never appeared in a book (e.g. Eulama).
    • The firstappeared field should be the title of the book in which the character first appeared.
    • The lastappeared field should only be used for the last appearance of the character (e.g. if he/she died).
    • The latestappeared field should only be used for the latest appearance of the character, e.g. Kel's short appearance in a vision in Trickster's Choice or Zhegorz's appearance in The Will of the Empress.
    • The onlyappeared field should only be used if a character appeared in a single book and was never mentioned in another book (e.g. Francis).
