Name: - the name should match the nationality and the time period.

Some useful links:
- English given names
- English family names and given names
- Irish first names
- Irish given and family names
- Welsh names
- French names
- Provensal names
- Spanish surnames
- Catalan names
- Portuguese and Galician names
- Dutch names

Aliases: most seamen had one; for other people diminutives go here; if the pirates don’t tell their real name, this is the place to mention the name they are known with (while above it is their name at birth)
Age:

Gender:

Rank/ Occupation:

Current Location: - what port they live in now or what ship do they sail on

Character PB: - the model you use for your avatar and signature

General appearance: - at least one paragraph, including hair colour, eye colour, build, if of average height, short or taller than average, scars if any. (No tattoos, please, in 1719 they weren't known in that part of the world yet.)

When thinking about people's height, please take into account that people were shorter in those times. A 180 cm, which isn't big thing for us now, would seem unusually tall then. If unsure, mention only: average height, or below average, or above average.


Clothing: - at least one paragraph, keep it time-appropriate and character type-appropriate please.

Some helpful links:
- for sailors and pirates
- pirate clothing
- for commoner women (click on the several layers of clothes)
- for commoner men (click on the several layers of clothes)
- fashion for men and women
- men's fashion
- men and women's fashion
- fashion

Personality: - at least two paragraphs, including likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses which make sense for the given character’s personality. (Strengths might not necessarily be personality aspects, but also useful skills, or what helps your character succeed in life. Weaknesses are aspects which have an important negative impact on your character’s life.) Some helpful links and hints are here.

Birth place:

Family:
Father
Mother
siblings
spouse, children, anybody else

History: - at least 4 paragraphs

Weapon Skills: - a civilian might have none, especially a woman; but for pirates, privateers and Navy, they are a must.

Anything else: Here goes what else you want to tell us about your character. The theme song reflecting his personality (or the one which lyrics are quoted in the signature) goes here too.
