Conjecture, in the Wolf's Rain Wiki, is speculation and inferences based on something else than canon, and any kind of non-canonical material.

What does it have to do with the Wolf's Rain Wiki? Edit

The goal of the Wolf's Rain Wiki is to present canonical information of the Wolf’s Rain TV show in an encyclopedic format. Therefore, we disallow fanon and/or material from the DC Comics as a means of filling in gaps or answering unanswered questions. This does not preclude, however, deductions based on canon facts or basic common sense, as long as they are clearly presented as such and never construed as confirmed canon.

Here at the Wolf's Rain Wiki, our main concern is to register only canon facts, leaving unspecified details to appropriate background sections. Albeit, there are exceptions.

Exceptions Edit

Given the scope of the Wolf’s Rain universe vs. the amount of background details unaccounted for, we are compelled to resort to a modicum of comic book-based conjecture to circumvent certain conventions and impediments.

Conjecture is permitted in two situations:

  1. Names for characters, places, and objects seen on-screen but not named otherwise,
  2. Names of species for the character infobox.

Why? Edit

Character names are absolutely necessary, so as to create articles for unnamed elements of the Wolf’s Rain universe. Conjectural species names is acceptable because most species are unstated on-screen, which means that even identifying Kiba as "human" is a mere assumption. Therefore, it's only suitable to recourse to DC sources in order to identify alien species, and assume that they correspond to their Wolf’s Rain iterations.

However, conjectural alien species should not spawn new articles.

How can we distinguish Canon names from Conjecture? Edit

In every article with a conjectural name, the "Background Information" section should include an explanation for it.

What is considered canonical in the Wolf's Rain Wiki? Edit

Everything that is stated and confirmed on-screen in an episode of the Wolf’s Rain TV series, in the official spin-off comic, or off-screen by the show's creators (writers, producers). The latter is denominated as "Canon-in-Training" and it includes, but is not limited to, interviews, audio commentaries, and DVD features. This type of information needs to be referenced and wrapped around with {{CIT}} until it gets confirmed in-universe.
