3. History - The character's story before the current timeline.
4. Story - The role the character plays in the story. Use Sub-heading 1 for the story arcs.
5. Powers and Abilities - The character's powers and notable abilities. When they have a special skill, use Sub-heading 1 for natural abilities and weapons and then Sub-heading 2 for 'Enchanted Gear' or 'Cursed Gear' under Weapons for example. Also, align images to the right as a layout rule. For the names of the demons or gear's names, also use the {{Nihongo}} template.
6. Trivia - Trivia items. Organized in list format using * at the start of the line (For style purposes, put a space after the *). Speculations, fan material or comparison to other series are best placed in the Forum or blogs.
7. Quotes - Character quotes. Organized in the same way as Trivia. The quote comes first— followed by who the quote is said to with context, Chapter number, "Chapter title all in italics." For example:

  • "Quit trying to shoulder all our burdens by yourself!"— Twelve-year-old Yu to Mika in Sanguinem, Chapter 1, "The World of Blood Legacy"

8. References - In source editor use the ==References== section with a <references/> tag below it. To collect the <ref></ref> tag info in the page. If the page does not have any references, the article can be improved by adding them.

9. Navigation - Place the Template:Characters_Navi here.

Writing StyleEdit

  • All articles on the wiki are written in US English.
  • Everything in the article should be written in the present tense, except the "History" section, this should be written in the past tense.
  • Articles should be written in an in-universe style, and not refer to the reader or viewer when talking about events. This means that terms like "in chapter" are not suitable.
  • Articles should be independent of any point in the series, it should not be required that pages be updated every time a new event happens in the timeline simply because articles were written from the perspective of someone reading on the latest chapter.
  • This wiki uses references. This means that everything in the articles must be referenced with the chapter and page number. This is mostly used in the "Story" section, but also appearance, personality, abilities and so forth should be referenced.
    • External sources: Place a reference in between at the end of a paragraph or a sentence, such as this: <ref>{{cite web|url= |title= | publisher= }}</ref>. For further information, please see Template:Cite web.
    • Manga: Place a reference in between, like this: <ref>{{cite chapter|n=X|p=X}}</ref> to support your point. Most references are at the end of a paragraph or at the end of a sentence. For more, please see Template:Cite chapter.
