Template-info.svg Documentation The documentation below is transcluded from Template:Bestiary/doc. (edit | history)

Displays the Bestiary entry of a character using the name of the page. Should be transcluded at the end of the Trivia section on every page that deals with a character included in the Bestiary.

Usage

The template has two modes: one for a single bestiary entry, which will display a single bullet point, and one for multiple entries at once, which will display an entire subsection with a list of entries.

"Single" mode

All parameters are optional.

{{ bestiary | <name of the character> | alias = <name replacement> | article = <custom article> }}

First unnamed parameter

Name of the character whose Bestiary entry is to be displayed. Defaults to the name of the page.

alias

Replacement of the character's name in the output text.

article

Article to use in front of the character's name. Defaults to "the". Set it to nothing to suppress display of an article altogether.

"Multiple" mode

{{ bestiary | <name of character 1> | <name of character 2> | <name of character 3> (optional) | ... | <name of character n> (optional) | <name>-alias = <name replacement> }}

Unnamed parameters

Names of the characters whose entries are to be displayed. The order of the parameters determines the order in the output.

<name>-alias

Replacement of the character's name in the output text. <name> must be equal to the respective character's name as entered into the template.
