Given the increased amount of character information given in the sequel, would anyone object to having character biography sections, which would detail what's known about each character's life in in-universe chronological order? Its very jarring to me to see details about a character's life rescinded to a trivia section at the bottom of each page (the Guardian Angel being a primary example). There's plenty known about many characters now that the sequel is out and even minor characters from the first game could get a least a paragraph of text for a bio if one digs deep enough into quest descriptions and the like.

At a quick glance the Mordecai article puts me in agreement. The top section "Background" is a suitable example of what you're talking about, then a couple of trivia notes down the bottom look like prime candidates for being moved up. Valid re-titles for the section header would be "Biography" or "History" in my opinion, and I think for consistency, keeping the entire section written in the past tense would be the best way to go. -- WarBlade (talk) 20:17, September 27, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, past tense would be best, I agree. I prefer "Biography" to "History", though I think "History" could be used as a subheader, with "Borderlands 1" and "Borderlands 2" being other subheaders. Granted, I'm suggesting that specific formatting option since I'm used to doing it that way on the Yu-Gi-Oh! wiki. A different style may work better here though. I don't know what this wiki's spoiler policy is, but doing it this way would put a lot of BL2 spoilers near the beginning of each article. I don't know if that's an issue or not at this point.
