This template is to make a uniform layout and format for the Ceremony sections on Character pages. It is highly flexible and can be used for any ceremony (or any dialogue, for that matter).

To put it on a page, use the following code:

{{Ceremony
|title = title, e.g. "Firepaw's Warrior Ceremony"
|reference = reference from the book; you can use <ref> tags
|leadername = name of the leader who performs the ceremony (or medicine cat, if it is a med.cat ceremony)
|mentorname = name of the mentor (if he/she has a role during the ceremony)
|appname = name of the apprentice to be promoted (or kit to be promoted to an apprentice)
|leader1 = first thing leader says
|mentor1 = first thing mentor says (if anything - can be omitted)
|app1 = first thing apprentice says
|leader2 = next thing leader says
 ...and so on, you can use lines up to leader5 and app5
|chant = Phrase cats chant at the end of the ceremony (usually the name of the new warrior), repeated if needed
}}

Omit any lines you do not need in the ceremony (e.g. if the apprentice does not say anything between to phrases the leader said, then omit the corresponding "app" line). Always use them in sequence, the app3 line follows leader3 line (even if app1 or app2 was missing).

For instance, for Squirrelflight's warrior ceremony, you may use:

{{Ceremony
|title = Squirrelpaw's Warrior Ceremony"
|reference = Starlight, p26
|leadername = Firestar
|mentorname = Dustpelt
|appname = Squirrelpaw
|leader1 = Dustpelt, are you satisfied that this apprentice is ready to become a warrior?
|mentor1 = Yes, she is ready.
|leader2 = I call upon my warrior ancestors to look down on this apprentice. She has trained hard to understand the ways of your noble code, and I commend her to you as a warrior in her turn.
|leader3 = Squirrelpaw, do you promise to uphold the warrior code and to protect and defend your Clan, even at the cost of your life?
|app3 = I do.
|leader4 = Then by the powers of StarClan, I give you your warrior name. Squirrelpaw, from this moment you will be known as Squirrelflight.
|chant = Squirrelflight! Squirrelflight!
|}

This results in:

Squirrelpaw's Warrior Ceremony
Firestar: Dustpelt, are you satisfied that this apprentice is ready to become a warrior?
Dustpelt: Yes, she is ready.
Firestar: I call upon my warrior ancestors to look down on this apprentice. She has trained hard to understand the ways of your noble code, and I commend her to you as a warrior in her turn.
Firestar: Squirrelpaw, do you promise to uphold the warrior code and to protect and defend your Clan, even at the cost of your life?
Squirrelpaw: I do.
Firestar: Then by the powers of StarClan, I give you your warrior name. Squirrelpaw, from this moment you will be known as Squirrelflight.
Everyone: Squirrelflight! Squirrelflight!
