A character sheet is a page that describes a role-playing character's character biography, appearance, relatives and acquaintances, personality, abilities and weaknesses, and other background elements. A role-player usually creates a character sheet not only as a reminder for himself, but also to allow others to quickly read up on their character. Additionally, some communities may require character sheets because moderators or game masters need to approve of their members' characters before they can participate in any of the ongoing games.
