Commenting Policies Edit
- Please do not beat down other peoples ships or opinions with comments like 'stop shipping this-and-that' or 'this ship is stupid'. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and just because you don't share the same opinion does not mean that you should say negative/ hurtful things.

Editing Policies Edit
- Do not vandalize the page by adding random things. Your edit will be undone, and you may get a warning. (See Warnings and Blockings below.)
- All wiki pages are to be factual and contain only information directly from the books or Brandon Mull's official social media sites. Please do not edit pages to include opinions or theories unless a section for theories is available (for example: 'Good characters that are suspected to be evil' can include theories). Adding "future boyfriend/girlfriend" is not allowed, but "possible love interest" is an exception. Here is an example of nonfactual information:
