Bibliographical information

For events that are featured in all books by Tamora Pierce that have pages, both Tortallan Universe and Circle Universe.


  • "name" is for the colloquial name for the event, be it "Scanran War", "Coronation Day Battle", etc. If there are events without any such names, then just put the page name, or part of the page name.

General Information

  • "place"— straightforward, where the event took place in-universe
  • "begin" start of the event if known
  • "enddate", end of event if known
  • "length" should be used if the exact beginning and end dates are not known, or if only the exact end date is not known.
  • "type", whether war, illness, crime, etc.
  • "combatants", if a war or battle, list both sides in vs. format

War fields

Separated by side, with one side as "belligerent1" and the other as "belligerent2". For all fields that start with bel1 or bel2, list relevant information pertaining to that side.

  • strongholds should be used for forts/military encampments/fortified towns/command centers, etc.
  • commanders is for all notable commanders of one side, (e.g. the general, or the commander of the King's Own)
  • fighters should only be used for notable fighters, the ones who did great deeds or something extremely noteworthy. Do not use this field to list all those who fought in a war.
  • weapons—notable weapons, like Killing devices, boom-dust, etc.
  • status—fill with either instigator or defender.
  • outcome—either victory or loss. If it's a loss, one could mention what happened to those captured from the losing side (e.g. life imprisionment, execution, etc.)

Crime fields

  • perpetrator should list all those who committed the crime, including accomplices (just make a note)
  • investigation should have all official and unofficial investigators (e.g. Sandry helped with the investigation of the brutal murders, but was not an official investigator)
  • victims—list specific persons, if any, or an overarching allusion. If the exact number is known, put the exact number.
  • motive—only use this if the perpetrator's intent is known
  • weapons—any notable weapons the perpetrator used (e.g. unmagic)
  • capture—who captured the perpetrator(s)
  • sentence—their official sentence from the government

Illness Information

  • use outbreak for "cause" (e.g. the Sweating Sickness was spread by Duke Roger)
  • use researchers for those who were researching a cure (e.g. Crane and Rosethorn for the blue pox
  • use cure if one is known.

Bibliographical Information
