So every round I endeavour to do this - and I've finally gotten around to doing it this time. If you'd like a Wikipedia style infobox graphic made of your character, just fill the following out, post it in this thread and I'll be more than happy to make one of your character.

 

Birth name (including middle names if applicable):

Avatar (I need to know who your avatar is!):
Date of Birth (I need a full date, not just a year):
Place of Birth & Place of current residence: Where your character was born & 
Name of Spouse(s)/Partner(s): If you'd like put in dates of marriage and divorce if you like. Include their surname as well, as that is usually what happens on Wikipedia.
Children (number is fine):
Education (University):
Religion (if applicable):
Party: If your character was a member of another party at some time, put it here
Positions: Include current or former positions your character has held, and the dates they held them from. If you held a position before the round, I need to know what years you held them for. Most important is obviously what seat you current hold and in what year you first won it.
Profession: What your character's job was before they became an MP

 

For example one filled out might look like this:
