Article DesignEdit

Article Design

There are some guidelines for the organization of species articles within the Wookieepedia. Ideally, they are organized into four main sections:

  1. Biology and appearance deals with the physical characteristics of the species. This includes descriptions of both their physical, instinctual and mental abilities, with particular emphasis on unique factors.
  2. Society and culture deals with the sociological organization of the species, including such features as language, temperament, and family and societal structures.
  3. History deals with the major events in the history of the species. This includes such events as wars, discovery by the galactic community, and other important epochs.
  4. [Species] in the galaxy provides an overview of the species involvement in the galactic community with particular emphasis on species trends and notable individuals. Depending on the available information, this section in particular may be incorporated into the earlier sections.
  5. Behind the scenes tells about the species' concept and creation from an out-of-universe perspective.

Each of these sections may be further subdivided as appropriate.
