Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: MrImATool

Character Names: Michael Thorne, Aaron Thorne, Torbin Cou'l, Silar Hup, Vangut Topawifol, Kingsley

How long have you been playing on Aurora: since it was founded with some breaks inbetween due to life stuff

Species you are applying to play: 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?: (couldn't find ours so I used bays)

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 had several robotic characters over the years, the one of which being Kingsley a Borg with a strong adheration of the British empire and the commonwealth. I've always felt Borgs lack the depth to truly get into deep character arcs and character motives due to me not knowing if I'll actually get to play them in the round because of not being able to join as a Borg mid round.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human:

Specifically synthetics are fun to play when they don't ask too many questions, the Captain says jump synthetics say how high? This creates an incredible dynamic in which synthetics are relied upon majorly. Two of my favourite IPC characters Haruspex and Aquilla aren't OOC wise going to not be antags, but my characters trust them without question, and I think that's great!

Why does this species in particular hold your interest?

I was interested in IPC game mechanics quite a bit, not being able to consume chemicals or have then inside, having to charge at APC's and even giving the roboticist something extra to do when he's not busy lobotomising a poor assistant. The next thing that interests me is how they interact with the crew despite being free I like the idea that a lot of IPC's rely on humans because without them they'd not know what to do next(I mean in life wise) an IPC without a job is useless and I love this!


Character Name: Kingsley

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

Kingsley was created by Elizabeth Sagan a roboticist with an almost fanaticism for synthetics. After Kingsley's creation Elizabeth deemed him a failure of her own hubris. Kingsley was curious in a way Elizabeth was so infuriated with, when first conceiving the idea of Kingsley she wished for an android with the ability and drive to learn.

Kingsley was too keen, he'd constantly question everything Elizabeth said until Elizabeth was so driven crazy by him that she picked up the closest book and gave it to him for him to read. The book was The greater histories of the British Empire and her satellite nations. Kingsley read and read and read until he essentially became a supporter of the old Empire.

Kingsley lusted for more knowledge unhappy with the conclusion of the British empire and this drove Elizabeth to the brink, she sold Kingsley to the local scrap merchant who in turn sold Kingsley to Nanotrasen in exchange for a quite petty amount.

Kingsley was assigned as a bodyguard for many important officials and even went as far as to receive the honourably title of Nanotrasen security officer. Kingsley yearned for a better use and eventually convinced his superior to assign him on to the NSS Aurora.

What do you like about this character?

his curiosity, he's constantly inquisitive and unable to accept the fall of the British empire.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

6/7 on a bad day

Notes: thanks for reading my app

It is short, I used to be a bit over the top with my backstories but then I realised not many people read through them and tend to skip out on details if they're too long. So I shorten them and if someone is REALLY interested in the detail of the backstory they can either PM me or find out in character.

It seems silly but I'd rather people get the general gist of the backstory rather than just skip it entirely because it's too long :) hope this addressed your concerns
