Loow's IPC Whitelist

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Loow

Character Names: Beatrix Saylor, Brady Saylor, Chance Mendoza, Jace Foster, Teresa Vasquez

How long have you been playing on Aurora: About 4 months.

Species you are applying to play: IPC.

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): Either dark silver or bright grey. Perhaps shaded metallic.

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: I find the idea of an IPC to be intriguing. Worker drones as well as opinionated personalities being given the freedom to live their lives as they see fit alongside humans and other races... That makes for some interesting RP. I hope to contribute to the existing population of interesting and otherwise well RP'ed IPC's on the station.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Most people are born without a clear purpose for existing. IPC's are usually given a clear reason for why they were manufactured and will often live this purpose out. What happens when an IPC is given freedom? That IPC now has to deal with many of the pressures a human has to deal with despite the fact that they had minimal control of their lives for so long. A human gets most of a lifetime to see how the universe is and attempt to figure out their hopes and dreams. An IPC must shift from a subservient existence to one of new "freedoms" and "choices".


Character Name: Jack

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

This Unit was originally designated Unit 021. This Unit was just one of several dozen intelligence created in order to serve a fledgling industrial manufacturing firm. This Unit was designed to work alongside the many humans that had found their livelihoods with the firm. This Unit first understood very little about organic behavior, but was more than willing to learn. This Unit supposes it must have been programmed to be curious. After TWO hundred and TWENTY SIX working shifts, This Unit opted to join the organics for what they call a "break".

This "break" confused this Unit. This Unit watched the humans interact and began to process the new data it was now privileged enough to witness. After TWENTY-SEVEN "breaks", this Unit saw something it had not seen before. The humans were passing small pieces of paper between one another, asking for minor forms of violence, then passing the papers back to the organic which had given out the papers. This Unit had not been programmed with knowledge of this behavior. This Unit observed with keen attention, for periodically, one such organic would call out Unit designation numbers. This Unit's own designation number seemed to draw the most significant reactions. THIRTY THREE breaks after the first observation of this ritual, henceforth known as "Black Jack", this Unit was asked to join in the "fun." This Unit found it was skilled at games of chance, but did not enjoy victory. Organics do not like to lose. Organics like winning. This Unit learned to minimize chances of victory unless "supportive" organics were present.

Participating in these breaks now involved more interaction for this Unit. This Unit learned much about humans, their views on other "races", and their speaking structure. I also picked up a few "ticks" to make me more "relate-able" to organics. Several of the organics I worked with called me "Jack", and they did so for years. Eventually, the manufacturing firm started to fail and the organics slowly began to be fired. I didn't like seeing the organics leave. I liked the people I was working with. I confronted my "boss" about it and he explained that organics were to expensive to keep paying. I was upset with my boss. I told him I wanted to quit. My boss seemed confused to hear this. I told him like it was, and he started to understand how I was feeling. I am very glad I had this talk with him. That is how I got "fired".

One of the organics who called me "Jack" offered to let me stay with them. I accepted that offer. They told me about a company called NanoTrasen. They hire IPC's for good work. I accepted that too. I like living with this organic. This organic has helped me see how human I am. They have taken me to organic gatherings and events. They let me see how organics live. They maintain me. They care for me. I hope to return these favors by providing credits for their pursuits. I have contacted NanoTrasen about their employment contracts.

I hope things go well with NanoTrasen. This Unit does not want to disappoint his housemate.

What do you like about this character?

He is an IPC who learned about life from coworkers in short bursts until he eventually started to develop a personality. He cares about organics and he wants to learn more about them. I like the idea of a kindhearted IPC who appreciates the differences people may share. I think some good RP will come out of his attempts at learning.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? Three out of four smiling kittens. I enjoy RP. I want to better my RP skills. I hope this character will put me in new positions to learn and develop as a role-player.

Notes: Thank you for reading my application. Let me know what you think and if there is any way I can improve my RP.

Well, Dmytro has been with Teresa Vasquez on the same shift a lot of. So they know now eachother. I like his RP, Teresa is acting, like she is really just from the Academy, she has Theory, knowledges, but she needs practice.

What's about Beatrix Saylor, well, Leonardo hadn't been with her on the same shifts so much(about 5). But i saw her as good, capable officer.

I would say +1
