  • Chandra's boss at the taxi service (Monsters)

  • Armed robber (Control)
  • Bus accident victim (Isaac's First Time)
  • Eden's stepmother (Life Before Eden)

  • The homeless guy: Sylar's decoy victim (Turning Point)

  • Hana's psychologist {Wireless, Part 2)

Any others?--Hardvice (talk) 00:48, 29 December 2006 (EST)

Looks pretty complete to me. Great reference list - thanks! - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:01, 29 December 2006 (EST)
How about the friend of Sheila - not important enough? --Joshtek 01:39, 29 December 2006 (EST)
Go for it! - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:42, 29 December 2006 (EST)

Time to split these guys?

  • I think the split makes it a lot easier to locate a character, and it allows for more growth. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:13, 17 October 2007 (EDT)


See this. User:DECBOY23


Wouldn't it be easier to merge Sabine, Penny and Donna together in a section under Thompson? DECBOY23 11:57, 24 June 2008 (EDT)

  • As Ryan mentioned above a split allows for more room for growth, and with the Company arc continuing over the summer I think it's best to leave them separate. Normally, we do groupings with related-articles pages and split up character and other portals when they become large enough (not the other way around). We are now discussing the same issue at Talk:Portal:evsdropr-Related Graphic Novel Characters, which was created without any discussion.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:21, 2 July 2008 (EDT)
    • I also said that back in the days when we had only one portal for every character who ever appeared exclusively in the graphic novels. I think decboy23 is only asking for a few of the more recent graphic novels to be merged together. I kind of like that idea, but I'm not a fan of merging them under Thompson, Jr--I like the evsdropr idea. I'll continue my comments at Talk:Portal:evsdropr-Related Graphic Novel Characters. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:35, 2 July 2008 (EDT)

Drucker-related portal

I think it would be useful to have a Drucker-related graphic novel characters portal. The "Drucker arc" covers four graphic novels: The Last Shangri-La, The Golden Goose, Hana and Drucker's Plot Discovered, and The End of Hana and Drucker. Additionally, there's The Man with Too Much Brains, explaining the origin of Matt Neuenberg, which plays a central role in the Drucker arc. Currently, these characters are spread: Drucker and Matt (including his related minor characters) are in Elle-related, a portal used exclusively for them, while Hampton Connolly and Traveler (including his related minor characters) are in Miscellaneous (this is specially strange, since Traveler should at least be a Hana-related). Thus, I think we could create a Drucker-related portal with all the characters related to the Drucker arc, and delete Elle-related (since it would become empty). The portal would include:

Besides removing some of the characters from Miscellaneous, this has the advantage of grouping all the characters from the same storyline together. Additionally, since the content from Heroes Evolutions (specially and Global News Interactive) is also important for the Drucker arc, I think it should be added to the "see also" section of the template. Also, I don't know if it's common procedure for the template to link to characters from the episodes, but I suppose Hana should also be included in the "see also" section due to her importance in this storyline--Referos 16:52, 30 July 2008 (EDT)

Regarding the portal I very much agree! Frankly, I've been meaning to post this suggestion as well, but never got around to it; The Last Shangri-La, The Golden Goose, The Man with Too Much Brains, Hana and Drucker's Plot Discovered and The End of Hana and Drucker form a distinct unit, with Drucker as the common factor.
As of the "see also" - personally, I wouldn't add other links than the common links, since it would risk spinning out of control. But I see the point, and will not object if the general opinion sides with Referos. Pierre 19:12, 30 July 2008 (EDT)
I suppose Global News Interactive or Hana don't really need to be added to "see also", since Richard Drucker's page already explains this part of the storyline. But I'm not sure about Hana and Micah's conversation at It's like an introduction to the Drucker Arc that is not covered elsewhere, so I think it would be interesting to add it.--Referos 21:11, 30 July 2008 (EDT)
The logical place to add it would be the Drucker article. After all - the character templates exist to navigate the character articles, not to summarize, or even begin to explain, the story arcs - for that, we use Related Articles Pages and Series Bars. Pierre 21:39, 30 July 2008 (EDT)
I'm all for that. And speaking of Global news Interactive, Ive been thinking it needs it's own page. I've started a subpage for it with mainspace intentions. If anyone wants to pick it up and run with it the way they see fit, they're more than welcome to do so! :) --SacValleyDweller (talk) 00:10, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
Looking great!
Personally, since I haven't followed Evolutions (not counting than the GNs) I would also very much appreciate a general introduction to it - what main storylines have occurred? when did it start? etc. As it is now, one really don't know where to begin to read. Heroes Evolutions would be the place to put this, instead of just having it redirecting to Portal:Heroes Evolutions.
(and yes - I know this isn't the place to discuss this, but since we kinda touched on the subject... ;) ) Pierre 05:19, 31 July 2008 (EDT)

On the appropriate GN character portal and article portrait.

Since we have so many artists drawing the same character in such different ways, what should be our criteria for the best portrait shot to use for a given character's link in the portal and their respective page? --SacValleyDweller (talk) 00:18, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

  • I try to look for images that show the full face, or at least 3/4 profile. It's also important that the image is as unobstructed as possible. It helps if the background is pretty neutral. Beyond that, it's a matter of judgment, which is the beauty of these talk pages. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:34, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
