AvatarIn the Babylon 5 fandom, an Avatar is the manifestation of a canon or non-canon character's traits and/or image to represent real live people, usually oneself. Essentially, all original characters in B5 Fanfiction are avatars of the author to a greater or lesser degree, the most egregious of which are known as Mary Sues. Physical avatars, also known as thumbnail images or icons, are part of the stock-in-trade in the B5 online community, serving as visual idealized representatives of fans. See 'Roleplay', 'Fan Art', 'Rasterbation', 'Fakir', 'Mary Sue'.
