How long have you been playing on Aurora?: at least 4 or 5 years, probably more.
Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they?
I have been permabanned and head of staff whitelisted stripped before. If needed I can edit into this post links to the appeals for some of the bans.

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

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, in game?:
A Head of Staffs purpose in the game is to run the department, decisively make the decisions in commanding said department, and sometimes step up for the whole ship. If the Horizon is a group of pre-historic tribes, they are the wielder of the leader stick for their tribe. In a more dialectical sense, a head of staffs actions should always carry the idea of protecting their departments interests. It's also their job to keep the workplace a workplace, ICly and OOCly, in the sense that new employees are trained into the job, competent decisions are made and everyday functions are fulfilled, one way or another (even if it means getting your hands dirty yourself.) 

A head of staff also has responsibility for the greater ship. They should try and keep track of the rest of the ships goings on, especially if there is no head of staff on for a specific department. 

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:
I think the responsibility is displayed in a couple of ways. The first one is the most obvious. They are the boss of the department, they take all the failings of the department and should be a legitimately good player in that department, or at least not get in the way of the actual running of things in a spectacular way. It is to be acknowledged that they are the thing that antagonists look at, and should be excellent in 

Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau Ceti and how it affected your character and their career?
Tau Ceti is the proverbial  three match survivor of the Orion Spur, lifted up by Corporate Influences and held to fight against the monolithic Sol Alliance. Now the jumping point for corporate ambition on neighboring states of the Solarian warlords of the Spur. Corporate Elements along with everyone else are twisting the screws down on everything, everywhere, and all at once. Phoron is the name of this game, and the Horizon has been out and about looking for Phoron to relieve this pressure, amidst a deteriorating galactic situation.

Fros'Qerr Vel-Rena has had a odd journey through the Tau Ceti Area and later the Horizon. Losing housing in the Odin after the First Solarian engagement after her apartment had in one of the blocks struck by the Solarian expression of firepower, as well as a whole slew of issues with regards to the Nrallak Federation and Fros'Qerr's relationship with the rebellion against her motherlands government. Ultimately, she will become a head of staff in about ten to twenty years if at all due to her compromised state of affairs with her government, the Stellar Conglomerate and her new found ties with the Tau Ceti Foreign Legion to prevent herself from being deported to the Federation due to her crimes and associations.

What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted?
I plan on playing a Chief Medical Officer with a new character whose name is Sil Zurix-Orleans, that being a Skrell whose lived a century or more in the Eridani Federation. They live and breath the corporate dogma. Having worked through the State Enterprise, followed by an exchange Program with Zeng Hu Pharmaceuticals which finally transitioned into a contract with the Stellar Conglomerate. Thinking that she is furiously unbidden from Skrellian physiology, she has proudly stated that in her century long tenure she has not taken a single vacation in her time with Zeng Hu Pharmaceuticals, and does not plan too for another century at the least. To describe her as dedicated to the corporate ideal is a understatement, and Sil will prefer to uphold corporate values above all others, even ultimately to the federations deficit, if it had to occur, Unaware of the probability of being unprotected from a deportation event should such a choice come to par.

Have you familiarized yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles?
Yes, I think I have done enough research to be familiar with the command roles.

Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking.:

Sil Zurix-Orleans - Chief Medical Officer.

Any additional characters, though unlikely, will be edited in during the trial. I do plan on eventually making other head of staff roles, but I don't feel comfortable to play any of those roles yet.

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

Have you linked your byond account to the forums?

RP is fun.

Warbidon's fun to play with, they give good RP and are very skilled at the roles they play. I've RP'd a ton with their Surgeon and a handful of times with their Cadet and I trust them greatly to make Command a fun role!

I've spent a few rounds on Violeta roleplaying with Fros'Qerr Vel-Rena, from what I can see he knows how to properly roleplay, to keep character, and doesn't seem like the kind to guy to use the powerful position of Head of Shitcurity Security to beat down on antags.

I am opposed to this; while Cerriq is wonderful as far as I've seen, my experience both inside and outside of medical with Fros'qerr has made me feel that your serving as CMO would be a detriment to the round. I've known Fros'qerr, even recently, to simply AFK in the medical lobby and only alt-tab back in after sometimes more than one loud noise, at which point you enter the 'say' command and type absolute gibberish in a rush half the time. I normally wouldn't care much about this, but I've run into medical with patients requiring surgery and had to give up on the prospect of getting them it quickly, and also been unable to surmount it while looking for roleplay with the rest of medical - I have frankly given up on trying to get it out of Fros'qerr, as harsh as that is. Most importantly of all, being alt-tabbed as a CMO is more impactful than being alt-tabbed as a non-command role, being intended to communicate what is happening to the rest of command or sometimes the rest of the crew, and liaise with other departments.

I am sorry that my actions had detrimentally affected your round, @Limette.

Part of the reason I had alt tabbed from those rounds is that I have felt a little bit burnt out of the surgical part of medical, as well as a relative comfort in the position as a whole. I think by making a new character to explore the new position I will side step the issue entirely, as I have demonstrated that I can play a round without alt tabbing with the rounds I have played as Officer/Cadet Koh.

I will not put anyone in this situation while I am onboard as the Chief Medical Officer, or any other head of staff I play as.

This is because when I tabbed back, I wanted to signal that I was "back" in, and would do a onomonopia of someone who is surprised would say, it wasn't just random gibberish. (And then do the job and actually talk to people, I guess?)

+1 I've played with Arielle Auriel-Qerk for I believe three rounds. They are a well thought out character that I enjoyed playing with a lot. I cannot say how they will be as a CMO, but I can certainly attest to the fact they are amazing to play with and generally a memorable character. Definitely a competent player and worth +1'ing

I've played some rounds as my XO, interacting with Fros, surgeon. I did see Fros kinda, sitting in the medbay lobby idling some times, but I think it was mostly at lowpop or when literally nothing was happening, so that's fine I guess. When we did actually interact, they were cool. I think I've also promoted Fros to interim at least once, and they did alright.

Cerriq Koh, cadet, is kinda goofy but I think they're fine. I have a sorta goofy skrell sec officer too. But Cerriq is not going to be a HoS so that's all good.

I've not interacted much with their other characters.

I know, uh, this is not very extensive feedback, but I've not seen any red flags, so I think wouldn't hurt to give them at least a trial.

In my about two years of Aurora, I've never really seen a security member like Cerriq Koh. At least not played for more than like, one or two rounds. Personally, I absolutely adore to see a character who's player is willing to roleplay FUN incompetence and goofiness to a certain degree. And while I don't play security, I do feel that's something that's missed and has potential within the department. This character on their own really make Warbidion stand out positively in my eyes, at least.

As for Fros, I've seen them around for a long time and I think I remember being treated by them at least once or twice. I haven't had many other interactions, and I don't have any reason to believe they couldn't be a CMO.

Witnessed them in a round just now, as their CMO they were able to quickly respond to a rotting liver and gibbed foot, using a monkey to replace the liver and the foot. The resulting horror frightens me. Makes a funny meme though.



But seriously I was impressed with their knowledge of chemistry, their ability to teach while directing their limited medical staff at disposal and their swift ability in surgery. I'd welcome them as a CMO.
