This infobox is only to be used for Tortallan Universe common-born mages who do not fall under another infobox character type (e.g. Rogues, Soldiers, or Guards). For Circle Universe mages, use the Circle Mage infobox.


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 may be "Duke Baird". The infobox name should fit on a single line.
  • The universe field should be "Tortallan Universe".

Biographical Information and Physical Description

  • Typically, either the birthname OR the magename field should be used, but not both. Use whichever name is not used as the title for the infobox. In a few unique cases, such as with Farmer Cooper, both may be used.
  • The honorific field should only be used for honorary titles like "duani" or "Master".
  • The epithet field should only be used for significant nicknames or titles that embody the characteristics of the character (e.g. "The Lioness"). Shang names also belong in this field.
  • The alias field should only be used for names used by the 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 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 the character belongs to a race like "Bazhir", "K'miri", or "Banjiku". These are races that are different from nationalities.
  • The species field is only necessary if the character is not human.
  • The nationality field should only be used if the character's nationality is known. If a character has changed nationalities, the newest should be listed first with previous nationalities separated by line breaks. If a character's nationality is not known, leave this field blank.
  • The gift field should only be used for the color of a Tortallan character's magic. Use "unknown" if this information is not known. If the character has no Gift, leave this field blank.
  • The magic field is the equivalent of the gift field for those Tortallans possessing wild magic or the Sight.
  • The specialty field should be used for Gifted Tortallan Universe characters whose magic has a known special use/purpose (e.g. Healing or War).
  • The othertrait field should be used for defining physical characters that do not fall into the other "Physical Description" categories (e.g. scars, tattoos, missing finger, muscularity, etc).

Family Information

  • The family field may be used for common family names if the family is large or well-known.
  • Most names, in all family information fields, should be written using the most recent full name of the character, with the option of writing their name in the format "title firstname" for royals and nobles. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.
    • When using the ancestors, descendants, 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.
  • 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.
  • The ancestors field should only include individual characters' names, not family lineages.
    • The ancestors field should be organized earliest to latest, from top to bottom, with each name separated by a line break.
    • Family lineages belong in the family field, with the most recent family listed first and previous families separated by line breaks.
  • The siblings, children, adoptive children, grandchildren, descendants, godschildren, and other fields should be organized eldest to youngest, from top to bottom, with each name separated by a line break.
  • The companion field is for life-partners who are not married.
  • The animals field should be used for horses/pets and should include a comment stating the type of animal. ex: (dog)
  • The patron field should be used for patron gods of characters, i.e. "Kyprioth" for George Cooper or "Great Mother Goddess" for Alanna the Lioness.

General Affiliation

  • The rank field should only be used to state class (e.g. commoner) or temple/school position (e.g. initiate, dedicate, etc).
  • The residence field may be used for a specific building (e.g. the Tortallan Royal Palace), or simply a location/city/town/country, (e.g. Queensgrace).
  • The tribe field is specific to Bazhir tribespeople, born or adopted. Use "unknown" if the character's tribe is not known.
  • The "kmiri" field is specific to K'miri tribespeople. Use "unknown" if the character's tribe is not known.
  • The accreditation field should be used for degrees and accreditations/accolades earned in a specific field of study (e.g. Mastery or Black Robe).
  • The occupation field should only be used for commoners or for those nobles who work for a living (e.g. teachers, seamstresses, bakers, etc).
  • The district field may be used for governor's districts or rogue districts.
  • The affiliation field should be used for associated unrelated persons or for events or places with which the character is connected that do not belong in another field.


  • The firstmentioned field should only be used if the 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 the character was mentioned after their last appearance.
  • The onlymentioned field should only be used if the character is mentioned in only one book and has never appeared in a book (e.g. Auld Eulama).
  • The firstappeared field should be the title of the book in which the character was first appeared.
  • The lastappeared field should only be used for the last appearance of the character, i.e. if he or she died.
  • The latestappeared field should only be used for the latest appearance of the character, i.e. 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 the character appeared in a single book and was never mentioned in another book (e.g. Francis of Nond).
