Template documentation (for the template shown above, sometimes hidden or invisible)

This infobox has been designed specifically to address the particular needs of a series character. The template supports all appropriate parameters of the generic template, so that simply replacing {{Infobox character}} with {{Infobox soap character}} will preserve all information but add functionality.

This infobox come with expanded parameters for relationships (Siblings, Romances etc.) that only appear if used.

The template also features the ability to present the Series name in a colored bar below the main image, standardized image sizing and additional image parameters (for alternate performers in the same role only).

Usage

Syntax
Type {{Infobox soap character|<...>}} somewhere, with parameters as shown below.

All parameters are optional, and will not display if empty. The "name" parameter will also default to PAGENAME if the parameter is not used; this is usually preferable to keep infobox heading concise, considering that full names (with multiple married names) are always noted at the beginning of each article.
