[Accepted] VTCobaltblood's Bzzbeeboobot Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: VTCobaltblood
Character Names: Robert Bretscher, Qusk Yuvuzu
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?: yeah

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 have a bit of experience playing synthetics outside SS13, and I can't say I don't enjoy it. I wish to play them more on this platform, but stationbounds do not appeal to me - cyborgs require way too much versatility, and AIs need crazy multitasking. Thus, I hope to play a synthetic as a more narrow, specialized character than the stationbound options.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human:
Synthetics are, obviously, robotic. They are manufactured units, designed to fulfill a singular purpose. They may or may not adapt to new circumstances, but they would always adhere to pre-determined algorithms. Their view on situations is algorithmic as well - their actions are logical and predictable, operating by cause and effect. They are able to mimic emotions, but, again, these are highly predictable - a synthetic, for example, would be simply hard-coded to react to death by simulating sadness and engaging self-preservation protocols, as opposed to a human being able to react to it with a myriad of impulses depending on thousands of possible circumstances.

Character Name: T-453
Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs.
T-453 was assembled on TCS Pragma, one of the Techno-Conglomerate vessels dedicated to research and education in the field of robotics. TCS Pragma is quite a small ship, and is mostly dedicated to teaching rather than practical research. Nonetheless, study on specimens is often conducted: T-453 has been used to demonstrate and test the basics of robotic repair, including posibrain operations. It had an extremely simplistic, but friendly personality - essentially, all it was able to do is correctly analyze its condition, and tell it to the students in a friendly manner. The chassis was also of a baseline, as-standard-as-possible variety. Many students were attached to the friendly unit and its mannerisms, and it was an unofficial mascot of TCS Pragma's robotics faculty, called T Minus for short. 
However, being only a small ship, TCS Pragma's supplies eventually started to dwindle, and it had to sell some of its equipment in order to stay afloat. Much to students' dismay, one of these pieces of equipment had to be T-453, as it had a fully working posibrain, and thus, was fairly valuable. Considering its primitive programming, it was purchased by NanoTrasen for a relatively cheap price of eight thousand credits.
Seeing how it was already quite well-versed in its own inner workings, it was retrofitted for mechatronic repair and construction. As of today, it is in service as a Roboticist on board of NSS Aurora.

What do you like about this character?
T-453 is unexperienced, but extremely friendly, as opposed to my other characters. While its programming is fairly primitive, it will, in time, expand its available data and become more competent in what it is doing.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? 7/10 I consider myself fairly experienced both in SS13 and elsewhere. Although it is my first time playing a synthetic in this game, I believe my previous experience will translate well.

If you all would know where he got his character concept got from.......

well actually i got this concept from a dummy doll in my safety class which we used to perform cpr on. we gave it a funny name and it was everyone's friend. i thought it'd be cool to make an ipc like that. but yuh my new husbando inspired me to get the whitelist
