Creating a character is very important but remember you need to be sorted first (go to the main page, go down to 'New Students', then click get sorted). When you create a character page make sure you call it 'Your Character Name Page'. Make sure you add lots of information about your character.
When you have done this, you need to add a picture. Please use this website. (At first it will have a male and female. To take one away click on the minus button (placed in the right box, above the hair icon, next to the ' <-> ' button)). Or use this wiki to request one.
