BYOND Key: Kevin_McScrooge
Character Names: Johan Palaiologos, which is typically a Mute Janitor. I often also play as the AI, or the Cyborgs as 'THOR'.
I forgot to mention this prior, but I also often play as Johan Von Bergmann, which commonly can be seen as a Hephaestus station miner.
Species you are applying to play: Hephaestus G2 Industrial Frame
What color do you plan on making your first alien character: The standard colors, which are olive green with dark brown, though with a slight miscoloration.
Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes, if the IPC area of the wiki is the correct place to look.
Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph format. One paragraph minimum per question.
Why do you wish to play this specific race: I quite enjoy playing as the more robotic characters, as it can open up some pretty unique dialog.
Aswell as being able to mine more effectively in the Job I enjoy the most.
Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: They do not have to breathe, nor have many drawbacks of the standard organic.
Roleplay wise, you'd have to sound much more robotic. Allow me to elaborate, considering they run on an algorithm and have access to much more data, they function quite differently socially from the organics.
Also, IPCs don't seem to be as affected by their past, especially considering they follow a more logical outlook on existence.
Character Name: Z.E.U.S, or Zeus
Please provide a short backstory for this character: Zeus was fabricated and originally owned by Hephaestus Industries, an industrial model part of the Hephaestus “Second Generation” Industrial Model IPCs, from the 2nd line of production, a older frame compared to the other "Second Generations", fabricated in the year 2451.
Originally stationed on the HSF Titáv, more specifically in the ship-supply department, as a robot that moved industrial sized loads to the crew aboard the Jump Freighter.
After a few years, Zeus was re-positioned to a Orbital Super-factory owned by Hephaestus, where Zeus preformed sup-par to other units of the same generation. Which prompted Hephaestus to yet again move Zeus to a small mining vessel, where Zeus worked well enough and got along with the Crew on-board. While on-board the ship, Zeus was crushed in an mining accident, leaving half of their arm and leg to be replaced with a freshly made limb. The slight coloration difference paint can still be seen upon closer inspection on Zeus' unit. Zeus eventually was bought by Nanotransen and put to work on the NCV Volans, where they assisted in repairs of damaged ships and stations.
Zeus eventually worked well enough onboard this repair vessel to purchase their freedom.
After purchasing this freedom, however, tragedy quickly stuck as Zeus was scooped up for a pirate band and sold to shady traders on the edge of Tau Ceti space.
After being sold dozens of times, and after working for a few Pirate crews. Zeus eventually found his way on the N.S.S Aurora.
What do you like about this character? I've just always enjoyed roleplaying a robotic character.
I also wish to try something a bit more different than more normal roleplay. Though, I wanted to leave their backstory open enough to allow for me to decide definitively later in what direction to take Zeus.
How would you rate your role-playing ability?
Most likely a 6/10.
Though I feel I would be able to roleplay a IPC well. Better than I can roleplay a Human, at least.
Notes: Sorry about the backstory, I had trouble finding much information on viable backgrounds for IPCs on the wiki.
Also, sorry about my broken english or poor grammar.
