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.

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".


Primary/Main Title
  • Titles/Rulership
    • Fields not preceded by "sec" should be used for a character's most recent title.
    • Fields preceded by "sec" should be used for former titles. Titles/Positions, such as Prime Minister or Ambassador belong in the "position" field with tenure dates as a comment.
    • The subsidiary fields are for lesser concurrent titles, e.g. "Duke of Yamut" for Prince Kaddar. Place the highest ranked title first, followed by lower ranked titles separated with commas.
    • The style fields are for formal forms of address used for the specific titles, such as Her Imperial Majesty or His Grace.
    • The honorific field is for honory titles like "duani" or "Master".

    • The beginreign field is for the day/year when the character's rule began, prior to a coronation date. Leave blank if the character's reign and coronation were held on the same day, as with King Dunevon, and use the "coronation" field for that single date.
    • The coronation field should be used for a character's date of coronation (e.g. July, 438 HE). Use "unknown" if a ruler is still in power but a coronation date is not known.
    • The endreign field is for the day/year when the character's rule ended. Leave blank in the ruler is still in power.

    • The comonarch field should only be used for spouses of monarchs who joinly rule (e.g. Jonathan IV and Thayet of Conté). It should not be used for consorts of ruling monarchs.
    • The regent field is only to be used when the reign of a ruler was presided over by regents. If a character was a regent, then that title belongs in the "title" or "subsidiary" field.

    • The heirapparent field should only be used for heirs who cannot be displaced in the line of succession.
