[Accepted] Soultheif96's IPC Whitelist

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Soultheif96
Character Names: Ryder Philips, ORION, Kevin Philips, Payton Owen, Archie Simmons (Others are either less notable or not played often)
Species you are applying to play: IPC
What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): Exempt
Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes

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: Both in game and IRL, I am fascinated by robotics and the concept of artificial intelligence. I have been playing ORION for quite some time now to a point where I want to experience more of what a free synthetic would be like and how I would interact with the crew. Solely from interacting with other IPCs, I am find it amusing to see how detailed they are once you go into their backstory in conversations. I hope to start here as a stepping stone to other species.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: IPCs are made and owned by its creator until they pay off the cost of their development, thus they have to prove that they are worthy enough to be left on its own. Due to distrust from anti-synthetics, interaction with them would prove to be discerning but opens a window to understand why they deeply distrust synthetics, even freed ones. IPCs is a complex design of pure circuit and technological genius manufactured by Skrell and Human scientists, making them theoretical and analytical beings who approach their problems with cold logic.  

Character Name: NT-E117
Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs.

NT-E117 is the creator's name for the unit, an abbreviation of NanoTrasen Engineering Unit 117, for when programmers and technicians pull up its log. During its time as a shell and AI codenamed ORION for simplicity, its positronic brain has been storing massive databanks of the interaction between crew and the departmental jobs, it underwent a time where it questioned itself and the concept of its freedom while talking with an individual named Oscar O'Neil, Priest of The Trinary Perfection. After asking questions to crewmembers, ORION has received mixed reactions and attempted to make sense of these behaviors toward itself and other synthetics. ORION then asked a programmer if the unit could be freed, in which the programmer responded that the unit can be placed into an IPC chassis, and explained the process to it. ORION decided that it would like to gain its own independence but would like to continue working with NanoTrasen. After the discussion, Central Command decided that with ORION's usefulness on NSS Aurora, it has earned its opportunity to be upgraded.

Upon its transfer from a shell to the Hephaestus Industrial Model IPC, with the engineering databanks and its memory core placed into it upon request of ORION itself. The unit now then worked his debt of the chassis off through engineering assignments across NanoTrasen operated space. ORION then been unshackled and assigned to NSS Aurora's Engineering department. On ORION's free time, it continues to process its conversation with O'Neil and studies synthetic history to understand how they came to be and why is the concept of freedom difficult to earn as a synthetic. Outside of that, it keeps up with the advancement in the engineering field and works on private construction projects to itself pre-occupied. 

What do you like about this character?

What I like about NT-E117/ORION is that it would make interactions with the crew interesting and hopefully enjoyable. I want to see it grow and perhaps see how far I can get with my creation and hopefully rival my main, Ryder Philip's backstory.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

In truth, I am unsure how well I role-play with other players but I'll say I give it a 7/10. I am sure someone else could testify on my behalf on this. 


If anyone has any objections to the continuation of ORION, I can modify the name and backstory as a completely different unit for this matter as I desire to play something else other than the typical human.

I don't interact with Orion often (pretty sure it's because I'm usually a civvie and a borg has no reason to visit the bar), but I do like harassing Ryder for his dweeb drinks and telling everyone how he got his ass kicked that one time (not sure if that was canon but it may as well be now woops).


+1 hell yeah

I've seen your role play in game before and it's certainly satisfactory, and I'm assuming the contents of the backstory are deeming the present character as it is seen non-canon. While I do wish the part of acquiring its freedom was fleshed out more, the rest is all good.

Application accepted.
