All the references I've done so far can be found over here!

Hi there!

I'm the guy whose entire wiki life seems to be dedicated to making articles look nice. That includes a lot of fancy coding and even more fancy character refs - if you need help with either one, feel free to ask!

Do note that I'm in Germany (UTC +1/+2) and therefore usually not online during American evenings, so don't expect me to reply during those times :ß

Non-WoF account I might accidentally edit from sometimes: Sheyffer

What do you make your references with?

I use the transparent lineart for the tribes (check this page and the like for these images) and color it with a program that supports transparency and layers. Paint Tool Sai in my case, but anything along the lines of Gimp, Photoshop, Krita, etc works as well. Just copy the lineart, create a new layer below, and draw on that second layer. Don't use the bucket tool, that gets messy really quickly.

Can I use your references for my own projects/characters?

Feel free to use my refs without permission for anything involving the character in question (such as badges and the like). Credit is appreciated, but not necessary, within the Wings of Fire Canon Wiki, however please credit me if you use the ref outside this wiki.

Please don't use the reference for an original character though, either by straight up using the reference or by recoloring it fully or in part. Thank you.

Are requests currently open?

Please check my message wall greeting for when requests will be open again. Can't promise anything anytime soon, but we'll see.

Why didn't you add (insert accessory/scar/etc) to (insert character)'s ref?

I did most of my refs about a year ago, using only the information on the wiki. This was pretty incomplete in most cases, so I'm currently working with one of the other admins to compile all appearance mentions within the books. I plan on redoing several references once we're finished with that and am most likely already aware of what you're pointing out, so please be patient :3

Other ref-related notes

  • There are only a handful of NightWings with canon underscale colors (Starflight, Fatespeaker, etc), but with more than 50 NightWings, only having refs for such a limited amount is pretty lame. Therefore, all NightWings that have canonically been mentioned to have black scales get a reference, their underscale color being some shade of dark gray. This will of course change if anything is ever confirmed otherwise.
  • I do references for all RainWings that have displayed a particular color without it explicitly being an emotion; their "favorite" color of sorts. Everyone else is too inconsistent to make a ref for.
  • Regarding the graphic novel, most references will be altered to fit the now canon color scheme of the character unless it explicitly clashes with the in-book description (such as a character having a different eye color than in the books), in which case the reference will be the graphic novel's coloring but as close to the book description as it can get.


Ever heard of the user Fishy, aka DeepSeaFishy? Well if you haven’t they are one of the kindest users on this wiki! For example, They spend hours on end moderating live chat and writing ‘Fishy's Corner’ in the newsletter which just proves they are a very committed to their jobs. They also are very helpful, if you ever need someone to talk to they are always there to help you out! You must be wondering, "Where are you going with this?", well, a lot of users have been asking if Fishy could be promoted to admin and this badge is used to show our support for our friend Fishy. And fingers crossed in the next promotion Fishy WILL be promoted to admin. FISHY FOR ADMIN!
