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:

Mostly, I'm applying to have an alternate character to act as a sidekick for the IPC, "Sarge." Aside from that, I'd like to play a non-human for a change, though I could care less about the lack of needing medbay. I'm interested in this for purely roleplay reasons. It's really just to break up the monotony of playing as Wahlberg so that the server dosent become stale for me.

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

Aside from the obvious game mechanic aspects, IPC's have the advantage of supporting more versatile backstories of a creation struggling to find independence despite being viewed as expendable by the organic races. IPC's are conflicted as to whether or not they are truly sentient or just following their programming and are truly just mindless drones. Seen as inferior or sub-sapient, IPC's are constantly struggling to be seen as equals and are under constant pressure for the rights of their species.

Character Name:Static

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs

Specialist Static is a Mark IV Combat Communications IPC constructed for hazardous operations in frontier space. Serving in an all-IPC shock troops battalion, Specialist Static operated his platoon's field radio and worked to maintain communications. In order to free up cycles for communication protocols, his combat programming was limited to basic rifleman training minus ordinance training. He was scheduled to run for 12 months and 1 day before being relieved from duty. After 262 months and 9 days (mission clock) of combat, Static was caught in an explosion caused be a squadmate activating a tripwire rigged IED. Mangled and broken, Static was transferred to a repair depot for recycling.

Upon arriving, however, he learned that fellow IPC's in his regiment had pooled enough credits for him to buy himself as scrap and, subsequently, his freedom. For several years, he operated a radio station in New Chicago on Earth before hiring on with Nanotrasen. Despite lacking his left arm, Static has found his niche as a clerk aboard the Cyberiad and is more than willing to share war stories.

What do you like about this character?

Static is an amalgam of many of my favorite movies, books, and games. He represents the down to Earth, New Yorker squadmate. Aside from that, he has a sliver of a shell shocked veteran personality, despite being non-organic.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?4.5/5

I have RPed with Monkey in the past on other servers as well as recently on Aurora. He knows what he is doing. I believe he can RP this character well and will do well RPing any other characters he plans on making. I look forward to seeing "Static" on station.
