[Accepted] Leudoberct Unathi Application

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

BYOND Key: Leudoberct

Character Names: Xicic Riori, Branches of Flowing Life, Daniel Pitchford, Ka’Akaix’Sgzi K’lax, Atepomarus, Seebeck

Species you are applying to play: Unathi

What color do you plan on making your first alien character: (27, 76, 3) Green.

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 want to play as a Unathi because I’ve found myself interested in their lore after starting to read into it, thanks to working on the Kataphract Chapter map and talking in the Unathi discord.

 

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

Unathi have some pretty clear physiological differences compared to humans, being cold-blooded reptiles rather than mammals. Provided that the Unathi in question also comes from the Izweski Hegemony, there are multiple cultural differences between them and humans, such as the largely priest-centric social hierarchy, (though nobles are still above), and the fact that their homeworld is currently slowly dying thanks to the results of a global nuclear war.

 

Character Name: Skkukoas Ukazozu

Please provide a short backstory for this character:

Skkukoas of clan Ukazozu was hatched in Skalamar in the year 2430, to clan Ukazozu. Skkukoas spent most of his early life in Skalamar helping his clan with whatever task he was capable of, often spending time running errands until he had grown enough to perform more physically demanding tasks expected of a male Unathi. He became used to the sight of Humans and Skrell from an early age, when the first shuttleport on Moghes was constructed in Skalamar. At the age of eight, the Contact War broke out, and Moghes was consumed in nuclear fire.  Though his clan escaped the worst of the war, remaining in Skalamar, Skkukoas grew up seeing the results of the war, and the wave of refugees flooding the city, attempting to escape the growing Wasteland.

Seeing such disunity among his people inspired Skkukoas, and he began to attempt to maintain a sense of balance and unity with his people, beginning to preach the word of Sk’akh. After considering the path he had begun to set himself upon, Skkukoas fully dedicated himself to a life as a priest of Sk’akh, attending a university in Skalamar, studying for four years to obtain a Master in Sacred Theology. Once his studies were complete, he became a fully fledged priest of Sk’akh, finding that he wished to attempt to embody the Healer, believing that Moghes had great need of healing after the scars of the war.

Skkukoas at first tended to a church of his own, providing guidance and healing to those who came to his church. However, he soon decided that if he was to better embody the Healer, his knowledge of the medicinal arts had to be expanded.  With financial aid from the church of Sk’akh, he attended the Skalamar University of Medicine, studying there to become a Master Doctor. Upon graduating, instead of returning to his church, he conferred with his brothers of the Church of Sk’akh, after receiving an offer from NanoTrasen to take a contract with them upon one of their stations. He came to the conclusion that there were many Unathi outside of Moghes who lacked a priest of Sk’akh to offer them guidance, and chose to accept their offer, taking to the stars to spread the word of Sk’akh to the Unathi outside of Uueoa-Esa.

 

What do you like about this character?

I like this character because I’ve not really gone overly deep into religion on any of my characters before, and this provides me an opportunity to do so, and to also become more familiar with another alien species on the Aurora.

 

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

I’d say my roleplaying ability is fairly good. I believe I can portray numerous different races to a high level of quality.

Can confirm. Seen nothing but good RP from your other whitelists. Got my full support on this one, too. Good luck!

Hello! Thank you for your interest in Unathi.

You show an understanding of the Unathi species and you have an interesting character background. I just wanted to ask, because it was not made fully clear to me, is he going to NanoTrasen to board as a medical doctor or as a Chaplain?

What made you pick these two professions, theology and medicine, and what about them interest you for how you want your character to interact with others?

The character will work as a Medical Doctor, though on occasion I may play them as a Chaplain. I picked medicine and theology due to the interest I have in the way it me'ds with the Sk'akh faith. Right now, to the casual observer, it may seem like the Sk'akh faith is a very destructive one, with the iron crusades and inquisitions. However, the faith actually preaches maintaining balance between the three aspects. This is why I am interested in portraying a priest that portrays the Healer aspect of Sk'akh, as it is the opposite to that of the Warrior aspect.

Alright! That is a very good answer. Application accepted!

Unfortunately with the server down our whitelist control panel is also down. I will check on it periodically before I sleep but I will mark this as processing and check again tomorrow evening when I get back from work, or I may have time to ping an admin to give you the whitelist before then. I'll mark this as processing until then!

The moment I posted this the server was brought back online. Talk about timing! Did you do this? I fear your power....

Whitelist granted!
