Each page should generally follow the setup used for other similar pages. Exceptions can be made if a special aspect is notable enough to require a non-standard section.

- Appearance (description of physical appearance)
- Character (overview of basic character traits)
- History (pre-series information, such as childhood)
- Plot (brief summary of involvement/development in the series)
- Powers and abilities
- Adaptations (for book characters only)
The opening sentence of the page should include the character's name, their type of role, and what series they are from, for example:

Cast/Crew pages should offer a general and brief overview of the individual's life and work outside the series. Specific information regarding their work on the Roswell series is welcome and encouraged.
