  1. BYOND Key: CinnySuccubus Character Names: Adannaya Kayeda, Xiang Zhou, Erri Sliszek, and a bunch of others Species you are applying to play: Skrell What color do you plan on making your first alien character: Light blue, #74B3CE Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes. (Does anyone ever answer no for this? Genuinely curious.) Why do you wish to play this specific race: I like the direction the lore team is taking with the Skrell recently, and I’ve been meaning to do it for a while to do a little story arc with one of Xev’s characters. Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Skrell are by nature quite different to humans. First of all, they’re hecking squids. Their society is primarily meritocratic, with the most successful of various jobs becoming Idols, something for the masses to strive to. They’re also psionic (which is neato), this primarily coming out in the Nlom, or the Wake, where all nearby minds are passively linked, which in the case of densely populated planets like Qerrbalak, means that the entire planet is linked. While both good and bad things result from this, the net result is that the Skrell make technological advancements very quickly. Their psionic nature also comes out in the Srom, or the Dream, which happens when they enter a deep sleep, and takes them and any other nearby sleeping Skrell into a sort of shared lucid dream, which also makes sharing ideas quick and easy. This can also be bad however, as it is very difficult to lie or conceal emotions in the Srom. Character Name: Shae'Lesh Loshool Shae was born in Qerr’wesi, in 2427, into a relatively small but supportive Quya, with around 2-4 members for the majority of their childhood. As a result of their parents, and their environment, they are an Axiori Skrell. As far as they know, they are the only child of their parents (but they are actually the biological half-sibling of Soolux Vushon). They have lived a relatively normal life for a modern-day Skrell, and have just finished their studies in their second college, coming out of education with the equivalent of a PhD in Xenoenigmatology, and a masters in computer science. Since Shae was a child, they have always been obsessed with puzzles of various kinds, and how they work, from riddles to physical manipulation puzzles, and was always planning to study something along those lines. Until they were in the equivalent of high-school, they had mostly consumed Skrellian media, but they began to take in various forms of human (mostly Solarian) media. They quickly became a fan, and this ignited their interest in other species and their cultures. Once they discovered that, yes, other species have puzzles too, their direction of study was pretty much locked in. During their time at their first college, their consumption of alien media led them to begin to identify with female traits, and they are often seen wearing what female scientists stereotypically wear in Solarian media (ie: violating lab safety). Despite this, they continue to use plural pronouns. Unlike most other Skrell, especially older members of the species, Shae is extremely open to other species, mostly due to their fascination with their media and culture. While between colleges, they accidentally discovered that their biological mother had had another child with another member of their Quya, but not anything else. They were not originally planning to leave the Nralakk system, but discovering they have a half-sibling they didn’t know about, and the events of last year’s Tzqul Archive event having disillusioned them to Qerrbalak to a degree, they decided to try to get some kind of job in human space. They convinced a senior researcher at their second college to sponsor an internship of sorts for them, gaining a job with Zeng-Hu, eventually contracting out to NanoTrasen to get more experience working with other species. What do you like about this character? I like the little mini-story I have planned with Xev, but the thing I like most is her desire to solve puzzles, of various kinds. I hope that I will be able to work my way into various puzzles so that people can see her enthusiasm for the topic (I hope Rubik’s cubes exist in Aurora lore). As I said above, as well, I like what the current Skrell team are doing with the lore, and I look forward to exploring it with Shae. How would you rate your role-playing ability? About 8/10. I play a bunch of tabletop games as well as stuff like SS13, so I’d say I’m pretty good.
  2. That's actually what I assumed, yes, the reason she joined the fleet was more as a stepping stone for getting out there anyway. Also, thank you for writing more about the Compact, they seem really cool haha
  3. As for religion, I didn't talk about it because I totally forgot about it. Whoops. I'll do that first, then some other things. Since she and her parents were from the Hegemony, Aza'hr and her family followed the Sk'akh faith during their time on Moghes and Ha'zana. She does not place any stock in the Th'akh faith, largely due to its decentralized nature, she believes it to be a primitive religion. In her time on board the Malefaction, she was converted to the Moroz Holy Tribunal by a Dominian priest who was visiting the base. She feels that the Tribunal is simply another way of worshipping Sk'akh, due to the large similarity between the two faiths. Aza'hr views the Si'akh Heresy as one would normally view a fanatical apocalypse cult, with an attitude of dismissiveness. She recognises the threat they pose, but does not give their beliefs any consideration. Her thoughts on the Aut'akh are similar, just with soul destruction instead of the whole doomsday thing. Aza'hr is supportive of the Hegemony, and believes that the vassalage of the Compact is for the best, as it means they are far less likely to come to blows with the Izweski navy. She, however, is not keen on being part of Hegemony society, largely due to her being a female. Even on Ha'zana, her family wanted her to just marry well and be a good wife. The only way out for her seemed to be to join the Compact, so when a couple of sailors came to her town, she was fighting to escape. Also, in regards to this contest, she did not actually win, but she did manage to beat a good few Dread-Sailors, largely due to the first few showing her some mercy, which she took advantage of. As for Hesphos' questions, the thing Az'ahr is most interested in is stories. In her past, she has always only seen one viewpoint, and pirate stories are all pretty much the same anyway. If being in the core worlds gets her interesting stories, then she's all for it. Besides, it's no more dangerous than owning a bar on a pirate base, or boarding ships for the Steel-Spirits. She absolutely has a rap sheet, but the reason she went to the Coalition of Colonies was to procure some forged release papers, with the hope that claiming she was held in some backwater facility that might not have updated her records will buy her some time aboard the Aurora, after which she plans to do it all again on another station.
  4. BYOND Key: CinnySuccubus Character Names: Adannaya Kayeda, Xiang Zhou, and a bunch of others Species you are applying to play: Unathi What color do you plan on making your first alien character: Black Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes Why do you wish to play this specific race: I like lizards. They’re neat. Also, their wildy differing ideologies, from other Unathi (and everyone else), make for interesting roleplay, in my opinion. From seeing other Unathi around, and seeing how they tick, I feel like I’d enjoy that myself, and I’ll probably be making an Aut’akh at some point, as well, as they seem particularly neat with the Oss and their augments. Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Unathi have a patriarchal feudal society, which is wildly different to human society. They may show disdain towards female superiors as women have less rights in their society. Unathi can also be more aggressive, with physical contests and assassinations common in the Hegemony and the Compact. Character Name: Aza’hr Kirsius Please provide a short backstory for this character Aza’hr was born in the Izweski Hegemony, but fled to the Grim Protectorate of Ha’zana, specifically the town of Moz’k, in 2441, due to the events of the Contact War. Despite being refugees, her parents are innkeepers, with a decently-sized family-run tavern called the Blackened Blade, which they do not work in as much anymore, with most of the work done by Aza'hr and her brother. She is not particularly close to her family, and is not the biggest fan of how they want her to act, and who they want her to be. When she was 19, a Steel-Spirit corvette, the Know no Fear, landed in town for shore leave. Some of the crew chose to spend this fighting in the Blade, which Aza’hr took part in. Aza’hr did particularly well in this ad-hoc tournament, so much so that the Dread-Pirate of the corvette offered her a place on the crew, having shown her martial prowess. She decided to sign on with them, despite her family’s protests. She spent a good few years aboard the Know no Fear, gaining some experience in simple repairs and starfaring, as well as a decent amount of combat experience, both due to boarding and being boarded. Once her time aboard was up, she chose to move to the Malefaction, and open up a bar onboard, the Bloodied Blade, almost to spite her family. While she was largely successful for a couple of years, the time she spent on the Know no Fear had ignited a wanderlust within her, and she had a need to explore the stars further. She sold her bar, paid for passage into Coalition space, and from there, to Tau Ceti, as the many stories she had heard from hostages had intrigued her. She eventually found herself in the employ of NanoTrasen, as a bartender. What do you like about this character? Pirates are cool, especially when they’re in space, and they're lizards. I like the idea of a pirate bartender, since you don’t see that many Grim Compact Unathi who have civilian jobs, despite the fact that they must exist. I also like that despite her being a female, she successfully carved out a nook for herself in Grim Compact society. How would you rate your role-playing ability? About an 8 out of 10. I’d say I’ve had a good amount of experience with SS13 and other roleplaying games.
  5. yeah i have precisely 0 experience with with all of that, hopefully i learn by playing more paperwork monkey HoP
  6. Thanks for the feedback, and yeah, the timidness was about half RP and half me actually going "oh fuck i'm actually doing this".
  7. BYOND key: CinnySuccubus Character names: Adannaya Kayeda, and a bunch more that I don't play as much. How long have you been playing on Aurora?: About a year. Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: Mostly because I almost never see a full command roster, particularly in the case of Representative and RD. Why did you come to Aurora?: Because I wanted a server with a much higher standard of RP than the other servers I had been playing on. Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: Yes. Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they? A couple of warnings, all expired. I have learned my lessons. Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph each. Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about: Roleplay is about using your interactions with other characters to tell a compelling and interesting story, with the goal of making sure everyone has had a good time and enjoyed themselves. What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: Heads of Staff exist to ensure a form of coherency, making sure everyone has a role to play and isn’t being neglected in any way. While being a sort of Mary Sue character is possible given the skillset, heads are more suited to teaching and delegation. Teamwork makes the dream work. What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: Whitelisted players should be for teaching new players about mechanics and the server, both ICly and OOCly, as well as being a generally upstanding member of the Aurora community. Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career? In Adannaya’s case, the Warbling arc affected her most due to her close relationship with a Skrell, and her inherent respect for authority. She had no reason to believe that NT would lie to her about what was happening, and was somewhat torn when people were referring to her as a traitor for taking the side of NT and the Jargon Federation. The current cold war in Little Adhomai isn't currently affecting her, mostly due to her living nowhere near it in Mendell City, although she keeps abreast of the situation as much as any concerned citizen would with the news. Adannaya views NanoTrasen's overwhelming presence in Biesel as a good thing, because she is fiercely loyal to them. Additionally she is a bit of a ladder-climber, and if being supportive of a vaguely 1984-esque corporate monopoly will do that for her, so be it. What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted? Probably all of them, but mostly RD. Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.: Adannaya Kayeda, RD How would you rate your own roleplaying?: I’ve had a decent amount of time on Aurora and other servers, as well as other roleplaying games, so I’d probably put myself at a 7 or an 8 out of 10. Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action? Yes. Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles? Yes. Extra notes: I suck at talking about myself, and writing essays. Please ask if you have any questions.
  8. Apologies for the slightly bare application, this is like the third application I've written out, I usually overthink it and delete them. As for the questions; - Zan'azri follows the worship of S'rand'marr, in particular associating with the charitable and communal nature of the faith. - She truly believes that the New Kingdom is the only real way forward for Adhomai, with the PRA being too authoritarian, and the DPRA too turbulent for either to govern effectively. - Her plans in Tau Ceti, for now at least, are to work for NanoTrasen and gain some more practical experience so that she can establish a foothold of her own once she returns to 'greener pastures' on Adhomai. - Zan'azri's family lived in the urban center of Miran'mir, living above their smallish, family-owned bookshop. She worked there with her parents, and her brother. They are all supportive of the New Kingdom, and spread the word of the soon-to-be King Azunja to the people of their city during the revolution. They played a not-inconsiderable role in gathering popular support by distributing the new constitution, initially discreetly, and later openly.
  9. BYOND Key: CinnySuccubus Character Names: Adannaya Kayeda Species you are applying to play: Tajara What color do you plan on making your first alien character: #8A360F Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes Why do you wish to play this specific race: I like the trichotomy of their governments, and the general cold war that is ongoing after the armistice. I also enjoy their aesthetic and their manner of speaking, and I’m looking forward to adopting this into my own roleplay. Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Tajaran society is uplifted, and is in fact roughly the equivalent of 20th century Earth, which may not be too different to us, but is very different to the people of the 25th century in the Orion Spur. Almost everyone on Adhomai and even some Tajara that are not have been exposed to a decades-spanning war. Tajara also speak in mostly third person. Character Name: Zan’azri Mahanai Please provide a short backstory for this character Zan’azri is a minor noble who was born towards the end of the First Revolution, in Miran’mir, on the continent of Harr’masir, to a Njarir family in 2432. Once the NKA declared independence in 2450, Zan’azri’s family was one of the Njarir families granted a minor nobility due to their support during the Second Revolution. Due to the violence shown by other factions on Adhomai, Zan’azri decided in her early teens that she wanted to become a doctor to help others. Once King Azunja reopened the Miran’mir Academy, she was one of the new students in the first year of its new opening, studying to become a doctor and helping her fellow Tajara. In her second year, her own aptitude for biochemistry was recognised by her and the faculty, and she specialised into a Biochemistry doctorate. In 2461, she finished all of her studies and was recognised as a qualified biochemist. Once the Armistice of Shastar was signed, lacking any actual land as a noble, she decided to leave Adhomai and move to Biesel, working for NT as a pharmacist. What do you like about this character? I like the dedication to helping others, even despite what other Tajara might think of her, being an NKA Njarir, as well as the antithesis between her actual nobility and her down-to-earthness. I hope that she should be able to create some interesting stories between herself, other Tajara, and in general the people of the Aurora. How would you rate your role-playing ability? About a 6 or a 7 out of 10. I’ve had a decent amount of experience with SS13 and other roleplaying games, but I feel my skills can be lacking sometimes. I’m looking to improve this in future.
  10. this kills the medbay main... ...+1
  11. I like the idea of a mechanic job, since it's one of the things I enjoy most. Perhaps they should also have a garage using shutters much like the mech bay where they can store their sick flame-print space bike?
  12. +1, Sabela is okie-dokie. Big fan of the unique quirks of Senan, but the real winner for me is Sabela. She is pure and innocent. Protect the rat-friends from the nasty Zhan.
  13. +1, Ponoh is a good calamari, and is always fun to chat and RP with. This is probably true for their other characters but I rarely see them.
