Species you are applying to play: Vaurcae

What color do you plan on making your first alien character: Dark blue (RGB 0, 35, 115, the one for the unbound C'thur broods)

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

 

 

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 been observing some vaurca players for a while and I noticed how interesting in terms of player-to-player interaction it is to role as a Vaurca. The in-depth degree of interactions and social social dynamics in each hive cell is something that catched my interest. I'd like to get the chance to try out a Vaurca character and see if this kind of interactions can aid me to improve my overall roleplay. I find that getting the chance to develop Vaurcan characters would allow me to broaden my skill and gives me room to introduce new characters to the game, with the chance to explore different aspects of the deep lore this race enjoys thanks to the hard work of the mantainers. Other than that, getting the chance to play as a Vaurca would give me something fresh to confront myself with while playing on the Aurora.

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

Vaurca are rather different from humans; it is not only a biology-related difference, but a whole dimention of differences in their biology, society and culture. While humans are often seen quarreling, even at the basic level of their social structure (be the family or the group of friends), Vaurcae are organized in well mantained and higly efficient hives. Ever before their birth, their whole existance is programmed and defined by the upper castes of the hive, and their existance as a whole can be defined as a different way of being alive when compared to humans. An hivemind is like a whole organism made of different cells and drones, they are all linked by the will of the hive, and unlike humans, they can share their life experience using the hive-net, and they have way different biology and living conditions.

 

Character Name: Ka'Akaix'Zoor'C'thur

Born in the first half of 2460, Zoor was one among the new batches of unbounds that were spawned by the will of the Queen. Her Will was to develop a new brood generation of Unbounds that would have helped with the task of settling Tau Ceti. With the other hives already moving in that sense, the C'thur should not remain static. Zoor was still a larva, as it underwent imagotis. It could feel its characteristics being defined by CB. It could feel the warmth of the hive and the Mind of the Queen as he was maturing inside his egg. With the maturation process concluded, Zoor hatched and was introduced to his hive as an Unbound. It had spent six months fully developing while waiting to hatch, and when it was ready, several implants and augments were connected to his body. It was ready to serve the hive. The time it spent in VR made it specialize in logistics. It would be its duty to ensure that the cell it was part of would be efficient in delivering every resource needed by the hive for the task at hand: expanding the C'thur in Tau Ceti. It was only matter of time that Zoor was sent to the Aurora by the hive, and there he started to work in Cargo bay. The first time Zoor met an human it was a true experience; it would never met one before, but it had the chance to sense this race from hive-net. After some time, it grew used to them, and to the other races too, expressing the will to work alongside them as long as they would not prevent its duty: to work hard and serve the hive.

 

What do you like about this character?

With this char, I'd like to explore the relationship between the Vaurcae and the other races. I decided to have Zoor be part of Cargo because I believe it's a part of the station that gives Zoor chance to interact with many crew members. While his main goal would be to serve the hive, Zoor is an Unbound, and so, while not directly connected to the Will of the hive, it will still do all he can to support the hive. This does not mean that it will not take the chance to get to know the crew and develop some kind of relations with them. I hope Zoor will meet other hivers too, and I look forward to see if its going to get along with everyone or there will be some form of conflict between the two parts. Other than that, I tried to remain lore-consistent while introducing my take on the whole thing. While Zoor could be seen as an average Vaurca, his mind is Unbound, and this degree of freedom from the hive will allow it to explore more freely the social dinamycs of NSS Aurora, while still remaining consistent with his race's and hive's way of interacting with fellow hive's members, other-hive's and other-species's characters.

 

How would you rate your role-playing ability? 6.5 / 10 - I feel like I need to improve my roleplay, and while Vaurca is one among the most difficult races to roleplay as, (imho) it still gives me the chance to practice more and improve my ability. This is why I wanted to try to take control of a Vaurcan characters.

Notes: 😄

Flip the bolding and have only the questions bolded bls my eyes hurt

 

Nice app. Haven't seen your characters that recently, but I've seen them a while in the past to know you'd use this species in a good light. I like the mindset of using the most alien species to challenge yourself and force growth in style; I did something similar and it's gradually helped me- mainly with displaying obvious character motifs and hiding true ones.

 

I can't think of any questions to ask this app hasn't really answered other than something like "How would Zoor treat transubstantiation if they were to attain it" (though that itself is largely irrelevant, so no need to answer if you don't want to)

Sorry, not a formatting wizard ;-;

 

Thank you for taking the time to read my app. I agree with you, playing different aliens allow you to broaden your rp skills because each race is different, this is what I am trying to achieve here with Zoor, hopefully it will help me get better at roleplay ^^

 

Thank you for your question!

Transubstantiation is an important phase of life for each hiver. Being part of something greater is at the foundation of Vaurcae's motifs, and the afterlife is a great unknown for everyone. Zoor would celebrate and be relieved that once its physical body is no more, it will still live on the afterlife, sharing the VR heaven with its peers. Since early age, Zoor was instructed and indoctrinated about this and other topics, and considers them a matter of critical importance in the existance of any Vaurca, be it bound or unbound.

Ok, I just thought of a real question. Sorry for the back-to-back, but uhh- what does Zoor think of/would treat Skrell and Jargon as a whole?

 

C'thur are a variant citizen of the Federation and to keep that going strong- the entire hive has to be nice to the squids, at least externally, so they can live nicely. It'd be nice to see how they act vs. what they actually think.

While most unbound vaurcae might have different feelings upon the Federation, for sure the Skrells did aided the hive in a situation where it had hard times at hand. Skrellian themselves like to exhibit this benevolent behavior with other species, like humans too. Being ruled by its original queen, the C'thur integrated itself in the skrellian society and its one of the main contributor among skrellian workforce. Zoor believes that the Skrells aided its hive, and so it is grateful to them. However, it believes that the Skrells should not exploit the hive, because its force is something to reckon and should they betray the hive, they would pay for that, C'thur is a large hive with lots of warriors and they could take over if they really wanted to.

Hello, sorry this took so long. The application is good - just remember, there is no apostrophe between Ka'Akaix'Name and the hive. In this case, it'd be Ka'Akaix'Zoor C'thur.

With that said, application accepted.
