Questions asking for help identifying a character in a TV series/episode, comic-book issue/story arc, movie, book, or other story.

This tag is the character equivalent to the tag. Use this tag if you are trying to identify a character that you are somewhat familiar with.

Questions should have as much detail as possible, e.g.:

  • The story in which the character appears (tagging the question appropriately will make it more likely you will get an answer)
  • Media (short story collection, magazine, TV, film, website)
  • Plot
  • Setting

If the question is too vague, then it will probably be closed. If this happens to your question, please add more detail and flag it for re-opening.

This tag is not appropriate for asking for recommendations. There should be exactly one correct answer — when someone does suggest the correct answer, please accept it, so that everyone else knows that there is no point making any other suggestions.
