This layout guide explains the way all articles of the Character category should be displayed in terms of sections and their content. Please follow this layout when creating Character pages. This applies to all Character pages.
|Characters (Overall Layout)|
"Character name" The character name should go first in bold letters. It should start of a sentence explaning the character and their role in the series. This is were the introduction goes. From there any very important information about the character should be put there. At the top of the page, every character page should have the template: Infobox character. Fill in as much as possible. See the example to the right.
A description of the characters personality should be here. Examples of where it is shown in the series can also be added. Ex: Jenny is the perfect inside-the lines, straight-laced girl. Jenny is also overachiever, which Jenny would dress perfectly where she would have perfect hair, makeup, and style.
Here goes a description of the character's background. Anything about where they grew up, how their past life was, or basically anything that was prior to the show. Example: “Liv Rooney has been acting for a while now. She starred in the show Sing It Loud and she lived in LA for the entire series run. Once it ended she moved back to Wisconsin.”
This is the section where all of the character’s history throughout the series is placed. This section will be broken into paragraphs. It shows the character's progression throughout the series. Whenever an episode airs, we add to the character history. As the series goes on, the history of main character's will have to be separated by season. Ex: "In Twin-A-Rooney, Liv returned home from Wisconsin. She was very excited to be back but right from the start, she and Maddie started off on the wrong when Liv interrupted Maddie when she was talking about her crush, showing her the Sing It Loud season finale instead."
The appearance section explains what the character looks like, how they normally dress, what their style is like and how it progresses throughout the series. Ex: “Jenny has long blonde hair which she usually wears in a ponytail, but she would occasionally let her hair loose. She also has dark blue eyes. Jenny wears wears a tan coat, pink shirt and jeans.”
