When editing articles, citing your source material is key to make the wiki work as a reliable resource for canon information. The primary way to cite your source is by the use of the <ref> tag. The rest of this article serves as a demonstration of the usage of this tag.

Note that for the list of references to appear, the article must be closed by the {{last update}} template.

You place the <ref> tag into your text after the section for 
which it is relevant <ref>This is an example of referenced text</ref>

The tag may contain a simple text <ref>Moonless Age Book 1</ref>, a link to
a comic page <ref>{{ChapterRef|3|15}}</ref> or a traditional link
