Create New Characters

Given Name

Their given name(s) in correct romanization.

Surname

Their surname or alias in correct romanization.

Native Name

For native names, the order should be ‘Surname Given Name’ without spaces.

Example:

Eriko Kimura’s native name field should be '木村絵理子' (KimuraEriko).

A lot of current entries are incorrectly written as '絵理子木村' (ErikoKimura), which is the wrong way round, or '木村 絵理子' (Kimura Eriko), which contains a space. So, if you see it, please try to correct it.

Dictionary browser extensions can help with kanji readings if you know hiragana. if not, then feel free to ask for help in Discord.

An exception to the above is when a name is natively western.

Example:

Reinhard von Lohengramm’ would be written as ラインハルト・フォン・ローグラム. Keep in mind the rules of the language the name is born from, as terms like 'von' and 'van' in German would be tacked onto the start of the surname.

Additionally, any middle names should be placed at the end of the given name.

Image

This is the cover image for the character.

A clean headshot or head and shoulders portrait should be used where possible. There is no preference for designs if a character has appeared in various media formats.

Format should either .jpg (.jpeg) or .png

A character's image should not be a spoiler for the work. Example: A character transforms into something else in a way that would be considered a plot spoiler.

Covers should be as close a 2:3 ratio as possible.

If you have to crop or create new images then 230x345px is the recommended minimum. Larger images will be downscaled to 230px width.

Please refer to Image Dimensions and Templates, if required.
