Add biography and sources sections to automatically created parent

When I add a sibling to a person, and don't have any information on their shared parent(s), a new father profile is automatically created to link them together.

The biography of that father profile is entirely blank. It would be nice if the Biography and Sources sections would automatically be added, as well as the Unsourced template.

Just as a note, I found out more information about Unknown Warman, but I'm leaving it as is for the moment for demonstration purposes.
You just want it to say below like it does when you create the profile by hand?

{{Unsourced}}

== Biography ==

== Sources ==
<references />
Yep. It isn't that much trouble to type it by hand, but it would be nice if could be done at the time of creation, just in case I forget to go to the profile and fix it.
I agree that would be convenient.
It should probably also include a statement like: "This profile was automatically create when two siblings were attached to each other. It should be edited to add details and sources."

Preferably shorter, but I haven't had my coffee yet this morning.
I'd sooner they were hidden.  They could be used internally to connect siblings, without being exposed as profiles.
But if they are hidden, wouldn't that up the probability of duplicates being created later?
But it's a dummy profile with no data.  Its only function is to be a number in the Father column to link profiles that share a father.
