[Declined] Kostyan's Dionaea Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Kostyan

Character Names: Ivan Togawa

Species you are applying to play: Dionaea

What color do you plan on making your first alien character: Exempt

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes

Why do you wish to play this specific race: As much as i like to play as a human, after time, it makes the usual Roleplay a bit bland, so i decided to mix it up by playing as a different race and the least human-like race i found was Dionaea, i find them very interesting considering their unique physiology and certain Changeling similarities.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Other than having an extremely alien physiology, they have a very remarkable mindset, being unable to understand complex emotions in the early years makes it somewhat difficult for them to casually interact with other races. Due to their gestalt nature, Dionaea refer to themselves using plural nouns. Dionaea are nomadic, they would take any job as long as it promises safety and education.

Character Name: Freed From Sands [Full name], Fred [Nickname]

Please provide a short backstory for this character: Freed From Sands was a nymph who was extracted from Diona Colossus for secret experimentation on Sol IV. Fortunately for it, while the ship it was transported in was passing through the uninhabited deserts of the planet, they got into a storm. The sensors array was badly damaged and was not able to alert the crew about the dangerously decreasing distance between the ship and an upcoming mountain.

After the crash, nymph escaped the ship. Nameless, without direction, it fled into the desert. It walked for days until finally encountering one of the Mankind's great megacities. 

There, wary of the humans, it slowly learned their language by biting strangers, much to their annoyance. It began eating different trash in order to grow. Once it did, it started scouting in the city, taking different jobs that didnt require having any legal papers, once it got bored of the identical days in the sands of Sol IV, it applied for Citizenship, choosing the name 'Freed From Sands' as an ironic reminder and left the planet.

Deciding it wont commit itself to only one task, it started working various jobs on different stations, until eveantually ending up on Aurora.

What do you like about this character?: Fred is not a person who can be tied to only one job, so it might make for some nice rp.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?: Dont overuse /me command nor break character, so i presume pretty average.

Notes: English's not my main language so sorry if the app seems a bit clunky in places, plus im not used to writing these :P

Hello, @Watchboi! Now that my browser is fixed, I can get back to this. And don't worry about your English! You seem to do rather well.

So, there seems to be a little consistency issue with the background story. Why is it that something that is wary of humans approach them for samples of blood, let alone choose to become a citizen of the planet where the crime of their kidnapping occurred?

On top of that, why would a Dionae go against their very nature to find an interest and study it?
