This template is to be used when creating Category:NPCs pages. Although typically you will never use this template on its own. Instead it would be called as part of the Template:Characterpage template

The infobox will be beneficial in providing quick snippets of information to the user without forcing him/her to go rifling through blocks of text. They are very easy to use and will make the page look much better.

Usage

Place this at the very top of your page, and fill in the information provided (variable descriptions follow the code). If some variables don't have info, just ignore it, and it will be hidden in the template.

You should not need to add any categories to the page when using this template. They are automatically set by the template.
