Error with embed discord/Python

When using !status I get this following

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/runner/some-bot/venv/lib/python3.10/site-packages/discord/ext/commands/", line 235, in wrapped
    ret = await coro(*args, **kwargs)
  File "", line 92, in status
    character = load_character(
  File "", line 15, in load_character
    return Character(**db["characters"][str(user_id)])
  File "/home/runner/some-bot/venv/lib/python3.10/site-packages/replit/database/", line 336, in __getitem__
    return self.value[k]
KeyError: '136206685319462913'

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

Traceback (most recent call last):

I was just following the tutorial but for whatever reason this doesn’t work as the tutorial intended.

The error is telling you that this user ID doesn’t exist in the characters key of your database.
You need to check if the user_id exists in your database before trying to load it.

You can change this:

To this:

def load_character(user_id):
    user_id_str = str(user_id)
    if "characters" in db and user_id_str in db["characters"]:
        return Character(**db["characters"][user_id_str])
        return None

And after that you check if the char was loaded ok. You can achiev this by modyfing the status:

Just make a simple check like:

@bot.command(name="status", help="Get information about your character.")
async def status(ctx):
    character = load_character(
    if character:
        embed = status_embed(ctx, character)
        await ctx.message.reply(embed=embed)
        await ctx.message.reply("Insert the message that you want in case that the char does not exist.")

Thank you! That helps with the error function.

I am getting a different type of issue now, in regards that I don’t think my create character function is saving the character correctly.

As the results when I use !create and then !status results in the message “Insert the message that you want in case that the char does not exist.”, which implies that the !create function is not actually saving the character correctly. So I will look into that.

But thank you again for helping me fix the error!
