[ACCEPTED] William Fagan fer ta Chief o'Security positi'n.

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Mneme

Character names: William Fagan

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: I've been playing on Aurora for awhile, just got back into it now though. Probably a couple of months, I made my forum account back in September and have been playing on and off ever since. 

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: William Fagan is moreso an administrator than your run of the mill grunt-work brute. He's worked his fair share of policing, and footwork, and now he's ready to assume a position where he can sit back, and manage. It's why I play him as Warden, for the sole fact that I can sit in the brig with my formal gear, manage the team, and help out that way.

Why did you come to Aurora?: For the heavy roleplay, it's one of the most developed roleplay servers in SS13.

Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: Yes, William Fagan has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice, and a Master of Criminal Justice, in addition he has worked as a patrol officer, and patrol sergeant, in Ton Gwan Pei, New Hai Phong.

Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they?: Nope. I'm squeaky clean.

Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph each. 

Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about: Roleplay is inherently about escapism, it's about immersing yourself in a world which takes your mind off of reality even for just a momment, and lets you play a character in any time, place, space, or era. It's about having fun, and that's what I try to facilitate as a warden, an example being I recently played a game of cat and mouse with a skrellian scientist who threw a smoke bomb and then camo'ed as a flag on the floor, instead of automatically tapping the flag and beating them, I spent a good portion of my time just shouting into the distance, wondering where they went. It's about having fun, not about winning or losing.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: A Head of Staff's purpose is to facilitate the roleplay of other people. They're not there to stop everything and everyone from having fun, they're there to enforce a general environment of roleplay, and assist people with their roleplay. They're not there to take over every job, and do every job in their department, or in my case the Head of Security, is not there to chase down criminals and beat them with my truncheon, but rather I'm there to help make sure that the roleplay of the team can survive.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: Again I would say the OOC responsibilities of whitelisted players are there to help facilitate roleplay, in doing so they have some OOC responsibilities like projecting themselves as someone who understands what their job is, and can help people understand what their job is. OOCly I would say people who have Head of Staff whitelists are akin to a role model, newer players are going to look to the Heads of Staff to determine what is, and what is not acceptable. If you have a Chief Medical Officer or Head of Security running around doing everyone's job, acting like they know everything, and just being generally obnoxious, those newer players are going to follow suit.

Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau Ceti and how it affected your character and their career?: The general environment of Tau Ceti hasn't really affected my character or my career in any way so far. William Fagan is from Sol, so he sorta feels about Tau Ceti as the British do about the US, it was once apart of us, now it's not, it doesn't really effect him in his role of policing. He still has some old-sol attitudes and isn't really accustomed to being politically correct, and sensitive, when it comes to those species who aren't human, an example being recently he called a Tajaran an overgrown house cat, only to apologize realizing that that level of slang isn't permitted from someone representing Nanotrasen, and the Security Department as a whole. Old habits are hard to break though, and he's had to abandon his more polite nature in order to police the crime ridden, and infested, area of Ton Gwan Pei, New Hai Phong. When you spend your time acting as a janitor, moreso than a cop, and just come cleaning up behind all of the gangs and the violence that you see, you start to become less and less sensitized, and more and more prejudiced. I think Tau Ceti's open minded environment will help reform him, in a sense. 

What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted?: Head of Security to start, William Fagan is my main character, and I can see him being the fat-muscle-bellied chief behind his desk, smoking his pipe, and facilitating security. A supervisor rather than a runner and a gunner, blaster and shooter.

Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.: William Fagan | Head of Security

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: 8, always room to improve.

Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action?: Yes

Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles?: I'm familiar, I have read all of them, and paid special attention to the Head of Security one.

Extra notes: I don't have any extra notes to add, only tat ano'ter Solarian Irish Head o'Security can bring ye notin but good, aye, ta Solarian Irish be policin Sol n'earth, fer many many decades now, s'only natural tat tey come on down ta police ta'station too.

I like this guy. I love the character, and I barely interact with him. They seem to do really well, but not just in the job, but their actual character has just that: Character. Easy +1, and I have no doubt they can do well as a full on HoS.

i had known of the character, but i wanted to see them as command before posting anything here. recently on a loner + traitor round my CMO took captainship and made Fagan the interim head of security, and I was pretty happy with their performance. they made smart, if a little risky decisions and reacted quickly to changing situations which i think is pretty important in terms of command, especially security. my only critique is that they could communicate a bit more, but that's something that can easily be worked on. +1 ^^

While I've not had the pleasure of interacting with their HoS as antag or security yet, the limited interactions I've had with them as a doctor and EMT have been wonderful. They're mechanically competent with solid RP, making a round with them as command enjoyable. +1

This is the only head of security I've seen manage to pull off the ability to randomly appear at the end of a shift without me even noticing they existed this shift, and are capable of actually yelling out orders and getting people to listen.

Otherwise, I finally got to be in Command with them, and I will say that I do not regret it. They themself did wonderfully. They manage the department well, their character is just as great as ever. This is still an easy +1, without a doubt.

Saw him lead a couple of times before, experienced his leadership during a wizard round today. His character is fun to interact with and he really knows how to get shit done. I can happily +1 this and hope to see Fagan more out of trial.

Played with them as station intelligence, they seemed to hold the office competently, communicated and delegated well and most importantly decided to play into the antagonists gimmick, even when the gimmick included them becoming hostage in their own office. +1 from me.
