[Accepted]Mel wants to bark up the right tree (Diona Whitelist App)

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Melariara

Character Names: Oh boy... These are the main ones I play.

Adelina Valdemar - Surgeon/CMO

Naledi Ahmehlo - Atmospheric Technician

Arielle Matson - Drill Technician

Nyoom - pAI

Zapper - Cyborg

Ashlyn Thermisto - Hydroponicist

Thorkatla Yngvardottir-Bilrost - Lab Assistant

 

Species you are applying to play: Diona

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

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes. I probably will a few more times over and over again, honestly.

 

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:

Because I want to try a different approach to a diona than from what I've seen on the station, and that approach is going to be a nymph main assistant. I just want to try and make a cute character that's always around and that you can talk to. Nymphs are cute, right?

 

The history of discovery of the Diona, especially their relationship with Unathi, has me in awe. I love the idea of the Unathi elders and worshippers believing a prayer for new life was answered by the ancestors in the form of Diona.

 

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

Humans are stock standard everything and extremely common throughout the spur. They also go to school. Diona do not, and gain knowledge via nibbling peoples ankles, essentially. Also, the idea of planet sized Diona (though we'd never see them in game) is impressive.

 

Character Name: Born Amidst the Chaos of Space

 

Please provide a short backstory for this character:

Born Amidst the Chaos of Space was grown on the NSS Aurora II by a hydroponicist, as is common aboard the Aurora. It gained a knowledge in Tau Ceti Basic by gently nibbling the ankles of the crewmembers on that particular shift, before taking the shuttle to the Odin, then onwards to Mendell.

Once on Mendell, it hitched a ride (but not absorbed) on another Diona, heading for the Eternal Temple in District 11 where it learned more about its people and the various religions.

With the recent events in Tau Ceti, Born decided that where it was grown and, well, born needed help and a friendly face, so managed to hitch a ride back to the Aurora where it... doesn't do much except help out by talking to people, keeping them company if they need it.

Born doesn't really seem to care, or is just naive, about the various relations between races and diona. It just wants to make friends and help people out.

Also it may join the TCFL as a RECON Nymph at some point. Maybe.

 

What do you like about this character?

Its hecking adorable and makes me grin whenever I think about playing it. I already play

 

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

I like to pretend its highish. Others may disagree though.

 

Notes:

I'm horrible at writing things, I know. Please, let me know if you have any more questions and I'll do my best to answer them.

 

Cute Nymph main kgo.

Ahhh you're going to do an Aurora born gestalt, interesting. Couple of questions right off the bat:

- Is this going to be a "new born" Dioane, ho wold are they going to be?

- How did they get recruited into NT and the station?

- What does Born know, feel about the Biesel Choir?

Whilst I don't doubt your ability to roleplay well, your application raises a few questions:

1. In order for a Diona to get citizenship, they are required to either be vouched for by other gestalts or by joining the TCFL. Does your Dionae have citizenship, if not, how has this affected your Diona?

 

2. Your name is an interesting choice, but I'd like to ask why you chose it. There are no wrong answers, just a paragraph on what the name means, what expierence it was derived from and how does it reflect the personality of your Diona.

3. I'd like to dive into this a bit more; 

 3.1 Why doesn't born care? Is it because they view all life equal? Or is it for another reason?

 3.2 A Diona seeks to form meaningful connections to others, how do you believe you can convey this on station? 

 3.3 Your Diona appears to want to help many, however, what do they expect in return? Do they wish for nothing? Also, how               would your Diona feel if they are betrayed by somebody they trust very closely. 

 

Thanks for applying!

Nymph uwu

I was considering a few months old at month. Naive about the world around it, wanting to learn and wanting to make friends and help out.

As an extremely young diona, the only knowledge it has is just talking to people. Its pay is probably barely anything, if anything at all, Someone from the Choir put in a good word for Born, and also gave it some pointers. It knows that, if asked, it will drag anything around that it can, and assist with what knowledge it has gained verbally.

Born knows of the Choir, and frequently hitches rides back to it in order to learn more information from the Diona there. Born gives almost all of the credits it earns to the Choir, anything else it saves for shuttle rides. It feels a sense of home and helpfulness within the Choir.

Born does not have citizenship yet, and will definitely be looking into joining the TCFL in order to obtain it. The first 30 credits it earned went towards tagging, so at least it can say "Hey I work for NanoTrasen yay!" but otherwise I imagine custom lines are very long for it and it just wants to help out the place it was born.

It was born during a chaotic time for space. It understands this. The galaxy is changing fast around everyone on station. It knows this and understands this and, being very young, its only experiences thus far are helping and listening to the song where possible to learn more about the current news.

All life is equal and its just very, very young currently and not really had to experience the horrors that many of the other clusters have had, nor the life experiences they have had either. Mostly second hand knowledge.

By busting into their place of work and chatting with people. Seriously, that was legit going to be my entire play. Follow people around that are in solo departments, chat, make friends like that. If needed, drag stuff around and so on.

They don't want anything except knowledge. If given the chance to nibble for it, it will, otherwise happy to learn via word of mouth. If someone was to betray Born, then that would be an excellent story progression for them then, as it would be a chance for them to experience something for themselves.

Mel is a great bean and in the past I've had a great time roleplaying with them. I'll always remember our first interaction on Aurora, and they were one of the first people to really speak to my character at the time. They have my support, +1
