The Biobox automatically categorizes a character page and creates a basic biographical description box. This is intended to ease the process of writing the basic, "dry" character information and sorting it into the wiki, as well as establishing a standard character page appearance.


Copy the below text into a character page and fill in the blanks. Five items are required; the rest are optional. If left blank, that row will be omitted from the Biobox.

|subject_name= required
|faction= required
|guild= required
|class= required
|race= required
