  • Plot (brief summary of involvement/development in the series)
  • Powers and abilities

Cast and crew page setup

Cast pages should use the cast template, and crew pages should use the crew template. If an individual is both cast and crew, use the cast template. Page should include the following sections in this order:

  • Overview (brief general summary of their early life and career, and specific information with their work on the Roswell series)
  • Videos (interviews about their work on the show or similar)

Do not try to thoroughly document of a cast/crew member's life and career on Roswell Wiki; leave that to Wikipedia and IMDB. 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.
