Template talk:Characters (Caprica)

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide


Lots of recurring characters are missing, lots of characters from the pilot shouldn't be on the list, and it seems a little judgmental to distinguish between groups defined by their family name OR their religious affiliation. Hence, I suggest we use this as a template. The new template would look like this:
Main: Daniel Graystone | Joseph Adama | Amanda Graystone | Zoe Graystone | Lacy Rand | Sam Adama | Jordan Durham | Clarice Willow
Supporting: William Adama | Cyrus Xander | Nestor Willow
Recurring: Tamara Adama | Barnabus Greeley | Priyah Magnus | Philomon | Ruth | Ben Stark | Tomas Vergis | Olaf Willow

Definitely agree to this. If more people agree, we can change this over ASAP. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 15:13, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
Any other opinions? --Pedda 16:17, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
Add Desiree Willow and Larry under Recurring. Can't think of anyone else who is missing right now. -- Noneofyourbusiness 16:30, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
I've updated it, but I was thinking it might be a good idea to add Youngblood and Gara Singh as well... although, I will admit that I am on the fence on adding either of them at the present time, if only for fear of bloating up this nav box. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 17:19, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
In my honest opinion, if we've added the members of the Swiss Family Willow to the nav box we should at least add Youngblood and Singh. --These 21:15, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
That's what I'm thinking as well. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 22:05, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
Well, as long as we're just covering Season 1.0, we could certainly add all other characters who have appeared, or are expected to appear, at least three times up until "End of Line" - including GDD staffers, half a dozen Willow spouses, and probably a couple New Cap City players. Once we 're heading into Season 1.5, however, the list should be limited to characters with at least five appearances, IMO.--Pedda 09:43, 1 March 2010 (UTC)


I'm thinking that we'll be moving Philomon to supporting soon... Thoughts? -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 00:07, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Agreed and done. Btw, is there any objective criterion for this kind of decision? --Pedda 20:04, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
I think it has to be determined on a case by case basis. We need to factor in number of appearances, the influence of those appearances to the story, and other factors of influence. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 20:19, 20 March 2010 (UTC)


Is the robot intelligent enough to qualify as a character? --Pedda 20:04, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Sure. Given that SyFy is promoting his twitter and his repeated appearances in the series, I don't see why we shouldn't add him. We basically treat him as a character already, even if he is a house-broken bitch. :) -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 20:23, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
Clearly, Serge is the Helo-like moral compass of the entire Caprica mythos.-- Rjinswand 20:12, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
