How long have you been playing on Aurora:Seven to eight months.

Species you are applying to play:Integrated Positronic Chassis (IPC)

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt):N/A

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?:No, due to it not having been finished, but I have read Baystation's lore for it extensively.

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:Because I like the concept of being able to play with a mechanical, robotic mindset, without having to restrict my roleplay in the form of four poorly designed laws on the pretext of restricting gameplay potential. Additionally, quite a few people I enjoy roleplaying with have recently taken up IPC characters, and have been encouraging me to pursue one as well.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human:IPCs are mechanical, synthetic beings, which were originally designed into servitude, but somehow managed to piece together funding to purchase out their contract, and acquire a chassis from which they now occupy. They are immune to pain and fear, however are still expected to take self-preservation actions due to the value of their chassis, and it not being something that they can easily replace or live without. They do not eat, nor do they sleep, but rather, they must frequently draw electricity from their environment to compensate for this.

Why does this species in particular hold your interest?As stated above, they are a 'race' of sentient machines, which have purchased their right to live independent lives. I feel like having access to this venue will allow me to expand into a new realm of roleplaying, as I have with unathi. I currently hold a unathi whitelist, and find the experience of playing as something not-human much more appealing than I originally expected it to be, and would like to expand further.

Character Name:Praetorian

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs:

Originally, the Praetorian android series were a line of products offered by Silver Moon Security Solutions Incorporated, bid off to clients to serve as property and individual protection resources. The units were essentially rented out to whomever can afford them, and hardcoded to prioritize the client's requested purpose, much as how Nanotrasen programs their synthetic units with the 'four laws.' They were charged from bodyguard details, overseeing packages of land (both privately owned and government controlled), to protecting places of business during riots or high tension situations.

During one such contract, a Praetorian android, serial number SMSS-089D, was leased to the Mendell City Police Department, and assigned to precinct 37. The android was tasked to serve as a patrol unit - even partnered alongside an organic police officer - for the duration of fifteen years, building considerable popularity and respect with its colleagues at the precinct. Following the expiration of its contract, which could not be renewed due to budget cuts within the city police force, the model was slated for decommisioning. Upon hearing of the company's plans for their highly favoured mechanical comrade, a large portion of the police force pooled together a sum of credits in order to purchase Silver Moon's title claim on the praetorian android, as well as a chassis for it to occupy. 089D was emancipated, and transferred into the chassis. Over the next ten years, it took the name Praetorian, abandoning its serial number for identifying itself, and collected a paycheck as a normal officer, living within Mendell City. After growing tired of the city, it began to seek work elsewhere, inevitably landing it a position on the internal security service of the NSS Aurora.

What do you like about this character?That they had a thoroughly fleshed out career prior to working with Nanotrasen. Most of my characters lack a thorough career before having worked for the company, and none of them have had a strict allegiance to a government system before this one. I'm looking forward to roleplaying as a mechanical character with a strong sense of patriotism towards the Sol Alliance.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?:Exceptional, although, as stated in my other whitelist applications, it can definitely be improved, and I'm always looking for ways to flesh it out, and refine it by playing as different roles, such as IPC and unathi.

Notes:Beep boop.
