Character Backgrounds

Character Backgrounds

We allow a fair bit of leeway when it comes to details of an MC's canon history. Very few things are set in stone, especially since there are so many variations of a character even just taking into account what is already covered in canon. There are many alternate realities and dimensions and, of course, there's the Marvel movie universe which differs from the comics in some significant ways.

What this means is that even if your character has an established relationship with another one in canon, it can't be assumed here: not friends, not partners, not even siblings or parent/child. So keeping this in mind when writing a background, be vague. Don't mention any potential MC by name. If they're currently being played, you can get their permission for the relationship and they should +request to staff and say it's cool. If you can't get permission, gloss over the exact details. If the person is later apped, feel free to talk to them about it and if they're good with it, you're welcome to assume it's always been that way. But lacking permission, don't name names because it might not work out (such as if someone apps a younger version of an MC and couldn't realistically have an 18 year old child.)
