For questions asking for help identifying a character in a TV series/episode, comic-book issue/story arc, movie, book, or other story. For questions looking to identify a story please use [story-identification] instead.

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) if you don't know the story the character is from or need to distinguish between the different media the story appears in
  • Plot
  • Setting
  • An image or related media, if applicable and you have it
