The following CitizenBox template is based off of a template made by Eisregen on VirtueVerse. It has been edited for the PRIMUS Database by Scarlet to make it more applicable to Champions Online. Thank you, Eisregen, for making this awesome template and guide.

How to use the CitizenBox

The long and involved process works thusly. If you just want the damn Box, go directly to the Cheat Sheet.

Trigger the use of the CitizenBox on your page if you plan to include it. At the top of your edit window, enter:


Below that, you'll want to fill out all the parameters that you can fill out or care to fill out. For this, you'll need the name of the parameter that corresponds to the field you'll want to fill; in most cases, the parameter names are the same as the name of the field, but they differ in some. A complete list can be found below. The format for filling in a parameter is as follows:

| parameter = value
| name = John Smith

This will replace the {{{name}}} placeholder in the original CitizenBox with 'John Smith'. Each parameter should be put in a new line for ease of parsing and debugging in case something goes wrong.

Close the Template. This is done by appending the following at the end of your list:


And with this, you're set.

List of Parameters

  • name - Your character's name. This will appear in big bold letters.
  • player - However you'd like to identify yourself. Ideally, you'll want to make this a link to your in-game global tag or user topic (User:Yourname, eg. User:Eisregen).
  • image - Character image. Should not be wider than 300 pixels. If it's too wide (or too small) it will be automatically shrunken (or expanded) to the appropriate size (but clicking on the image will display the actual image rather than the adjusted version). If you have no image, don't include this parameter and it will default to a placeholder image instead.
  • caption - Text that goes right beneath the image, if you think the image requires further commentary. If not, don't include this parameter and there will be no text in the block below the image.

  • realname - Your character's civilian identity. Defaults to 'Confidential' if not further specified.
  • aliases - Any other names (civilian or heroic/villainous) your character may be using. Defaults to 'None' if not further specified.
  • species - Your character's species. This is mostly important for aliens, sentient fungi and the like. Defaults to 'Presumed Human' if not further specified.
  • ethnicity - Your character's heritage. Defaults to 'Confidential' if not further specified.
  • age - Your character's age in human (solar) years. Defaults to 'Confidential' if not further specified.
  • height - Your character's height in feet and inches. Defaults to 'Confidential' if not further specified.
  • weight - Your character's weight in pounds (see height). Defaults to 'Confidential' if not further specified.
  • eyes - Your character's eye color. Defaults to 'Confidential' if not further specified.
  • hair - Your character's hair color. Defaults to 'Confidential' if not further specified.

  • nationality - The country of interstellar empire your character claims citizenship of. Defaults to 'Confidential' if not further specified.
  • occupation - What your character does for a living. 'Professional Crimefighter', 'Adventurer', 'Career Criminal' etc. are thoroughly legit occupations. Defaults to 'Confidential' if not further specified.
  • birthplace - Where your character was born. Defaults to 'Confidential' if not further specified.
  • hometown - Your character's current residence and stomping ground. Most likely Paragon City or the Rogue/Etoile Isles. Defaults to 'Confidential' if not further specified.
  • marital - Whether your character is single, engaged, married, widowed or whatever other forms of voluntary slavery there are between two people. Defaults to 'Confidential' if not further specified.
  • relatives - What kind of (relevant) relatives your character has or had. Most likely you'll want to limit this to any important characters that appear in stories or RP (such as Ascendant's uncle and manager). Defaults to 'Confidential' if not further specified.

  • footnotes - Room for any notes you want available at a glance that aren't covered by the above categories will be placed in the bottom box.
