This is how articles should be written on the Spyro Wiki.

Point of View

Everything should be written in a neutral point of view, and in one specific tense for an article, unless the topic evolves beyond one time frame. Avoid saying things like "Spyro was an epic purple dragon". Instead, say "Spyro was a rare breed of purple dragon".

The story and history sections should be written in past tence, but everything else should be in present tence, unless it's about something that will happen in the future. However, if a character is suddenly withdrawn from the series due to copyright actions, their articles should be completly written in past tence.

The term "level" cannot be used when referancing the realms, unless noted otherwise, as it is very out-universe, and we want the pages to be in a neutral point of view.
