Arts: List with score, e.g., Wayfare 3
Realms: List with score, e.g., Fae 4
Glamour, Willpower and Banality: List only the permanent values; do not list temporary ones, as they will fluctuate.
Birthrights & Frailties, House Boon and Flaw:
Merits & Flaws: List these, and provide a shorthand description of what each involves (e.g., Poetic Heart, 3 pt merit; may make a willpower roll vs. perm banality to avoid gaining a point of temp banality, once per story). The shorthand is so I'm not constantly looking up Merits and Flaws. Providing me with the book and page number for a particular Merit or Flaw is very helpful!
Background & Personality: This should be the longest section! In it, please remember to include details of your character's early life, family, Chrysalis, and so on. These are important things, so take the time to think them out.
Goals: What sort of goals does your character have? Does he want to win friends and influence people? Does she want to learn all she can so she can return to her home duchy as a worthy successor to her mentor?
Description of your character: Include both mortal and faerie appearance.
Equipment: Any equipment, either real or chimerical, that your PC has.
Sample LJ Post: An example of an IC journal post for this game. Think of this as your "writing sample;" it gives me an idea of how well you can write (very important in a game like this one).

Below is an example of a Sample LJ Post, in the style preferred for this game:
Aidan sets his duffel bag down on one of the dorm room beds and then retrieves a cardboard mailing tube from the corresponding desk. He carefully pulls a rolled-up sheet of paper from inside it, and then produces a package of Sticky-Tac from his bag.

Standing on the chair, he unrolls a "Two Towers" poster and tacks it above the desk. After a few minutes, a "Spider-Man" poster goes up next to it. Grinning, he hops down and stands back to admire his handiwork. **There. That looks better already.**
