[Denied] NecromanTea's Hefty IPC Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: NecromanTea
Character Names: Enan Ombolanle, Sun Dae-won, Karim Akash
Species you are applying to play: IPC (Hephaestus G2 Industrial Frame)
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:
I wish to play as an IPC because i like playing mechanical beings, but find that playing as the androids and such being linked to the AI a little to restrictive to one thing. I like playing characters who dont quite get whats going on, but are able to rapidly adapt and learn, and as such think IPC's would make this very achievable

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human:
IPC's are subject to the whims of their owners, unless they have paid off their own value ten times over to become free IPC's. This is interesting because i must roleplay as a servant-master relationship, and build myself up to be considered an equal to organic species.

Character Name: Hesiod
Please provide a short backstory for this character

Hesiod is a hephesteus G2 frame, originally bought by those upon the Jotunheimr CCV, but due to the ineffectiveness of the frame, was sold to NanoTrasenwho could more readily manage his downsides. He was originally focused for cargo work and mining, but as been repurposed as a security IPC due to his heavy weight nature and a misunderstanding that he was from the Jormungandr CCV, not the Jotunheimr

What do you like about this character?
He is going to be initially confused as to why he is working security, but will possibly see this as a faster path to freedom, and may be able to use misunderstandings in the future to generate additional role play scenarios

How would you rate your role-playing ability?
 Quite good, when given proper interaction, and as long as people are open to characters that may not follow all the rules to the tee

In it's current state, I would deny this application on the basis of a lack of depth on the character concept as well as a lack of depth in presenting an understanding of the differences between humans and IPCs.

Bear in mind, the application format calls for approximately two paragraphs of content for the character concept.

I am however willing to extend a deadline for you to bolster the content in the application!

Some immediate questions I have are why was Hesiod deemed ineffective? What were/are his downsides? What was his early life like? Etc etc.

To clean up the board, I'll have to deny the application for now. However, feel free to reapply when you have the time to address what was brought up above!
