Wheasymold552's Skrell app (hopefully I put this in the right spot)

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Wheasymold552

Character Names: Lily and Evie Dennis, Inge Sadar

Species you are applying to play: Skrell

What color do you plan on making your first alien character: Pink!

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?:I’ve read the lore page and spoke with Caelphon about my character.


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:

Personally, I want to play Skrell for the added aspect to rp. I think rping with all the different species on Aurora is fun and it’s super interesting to learn about other character’s backstories. I think I’ve got a pretty original idea and if not, it’ll at least be something fun to rp out and it’s something I’ve never really been able to do with my human characters and so I’d say that’s the main reason that I’d like to play Skrell. I also think that Skrell is a great introduction into the other races as there’s lots of lore surrounding them and nothing about them is ridiculously confusing for no reason.


Identify what makes role-playing this species different from role-playing a Human: Nearly everything about roleplaying a Skrell is different. A big difference is expressions of emotion, the skrell incorporating their head tails into this which is something I’ve never had to rp out before. Another difference is a Skrell’s psionic abilities, the process of learning them oocly is going to add a whole new depth to the rp process.


Character Name:Qeross Jia'Meyk

(Yes I realize that skrell don't have gender but I legit couldn't figure out how to word this coherently enough to be legible using only their them they etc)

Please provide a short backstory for this character: Qeross was born into their quya the year 2420 along with their 5 other siblings, all of whom were talented in the early stages of life and would grow up to achieve great things. Qeross on the other hand, never really knew what to do with their life. He knew that his parents wanted him to grow up to do great things too, “Be a doctor…” they said, “Play music for a living…” they’d say, “Research for the sake of your race…” they’d beg. He’d have none of it, knowing deep down that he didn’t yearn for fame, power or money. He was in search of something that he wouldn’t come to recognize until his later years of life. Other than the nagging from his parents, he lived a fairly normal life, making it through school where he eventually enrolled into a college program revolving around the research and production of new plants… xeno-botany. 

During his college years he started descending down the path of recreational drugs and alcohol such, slowly shifting towards stronger substances that he would genetically modify and breed specifically to be stronger. He started hanging out with a worse and worse crowd until finally getting kicked out of college due to his drug habits. He was given two choices by his parents, attend therapy or get a base level job to at least sustain himself. He chose therapy though he had different plans. His version of therapy involved a meeting with a local Wei'Vii in hopes of finding his inner peace. 

This meeting sparked a whole new meaning into his life, teaching him of himself and the constellations around him. The Wei’Vii came to be known to Qeross as Qu'Nioh, slowly the two becoming closer and closer as they spent more and more time together in the wilderness partaking in several meditation sessions together daily, exploring the world of Srom in hopes of finding the meaning of the universe. Qeross grew and tended after plants with his spiritual role model, using the harvest in special ceremonies that would send them on a trip to the next dimension, a drug altered version of Srom. While there, Qeross had what some may call a vision, others may say gut feeling, though no one knows for sure except Qeross. It planted this idea of peace and tranquility achieved through rigorous meditation followed by genetically altered herb induced benders which would eventually lead him to this highly coveted Zen state of mind. 

That’s when he decided to leave, in hopes of finding something new to help him along in his journey and a place where he can practice Weishii without judgements from those around him. A place where he could live in relative peace rather than be constantly reminded of his shortcomings in school. The Aurora was his place of choice for a few reasons. Great hydroponics facilities, cheap housing at the Odin and a relatively cheap shuttle trip there. He got a work visa and headed off into the unknown, finally arriving at the large station, dressed in his botanical uniform and ready to work. 


What do you like about this character?

I like that this character is out of the norm for Skrells on the station (or at least from what I’ve seen). Rather than pursuing great knowledge of the things around them (like scientific fields etc.) they choose to explore and learn about themselves through meditation, stargazing and spirituality. I think it’ll be really fun to rp out their 

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

I’m not exactly sure how I would rate myself in terms or role-playing ability as it would definitely depend on who you ask but I will say that I think I personally do a fine job of staying in-character and try to incorporate emotes into as much of my rp as I can. (If that answers the question lol? I feel weird rating myself on ability!)

First, I have to say that I love Evie. I haven't interacted with Inge Sadar as much, but Evie and I are friends and I love her character growth, I think you're making a really interesting storyline with her.


Now, I'm really curious: Is Qeross some kind of Skrell hippie? Does he follow the same autodestructive behaviors as before?

Anyways, I hope more people can provide better feedback.

Qeross is by all means a Skrell varient of hippie, though, it's not like he plans on taking an excessive amount of drugs, at least in comparison to the level of meditation and strom walking he'll be doing. He wants to remain productive in combination with getting closer to his "zen" state of mind.
