They are different characters though..Thel 'vadam had a life and what not before he became the arbiter.

Just because there was a major turning point in the character's life doesn't mean he was two different characters. Thel 'Vadam and The Arbiter are the exact same person.

I see what you are trying to get at but the Arbiter is not a singular character, there have been multiple Arbiter's; 192 or something like that. On the other hand Thel' Vadam is a unique character who took a active role in war even before he became the Arbiter.

Thel' Vadam isn't the only Arbiter.  That's like saying you need to get rid of the character pages for anyone who's ever taken on Batman's title.

In that case shouldn't Thel'Vadam be a character and Arbiter be a concept?

This makes more sense since, as has been pointed out before, Thel' Vadam isn't the first and Arbiter to exist, he was merely the last. I do not agree that the page should be removed.

@pyromaniac: @Make_Me_Mad: @Skilbs: @Azteck: I absolutely agree that there should be a concept page for the Arbiter as a rank, but it should also be noted that both the character pages entitled Thel 'Vadam and The Arbiter refer to Thel 'Vadam, The Arbiter character page does not refer directly to the rank. The way I saw it, it made the most sense to delete the Thel 'Vadam page as The Arbiter page has all the information that the Thel 'Vadam page does and more. Whether or not The Arbiter's page should be renamed to Thel 'Vadam is another issue.

The Arbiter page refers to a specific Arbiter, Thel 'Vadam. They are the same. Master Chief is also a rank, but we wouldn't give him two separate character pages.
