How long have you been playing on Aurora:

I'm so bad with keeping time. I'm going to guesstimate a year.

Species you are applying to play:


Have you read our lore section's page on this species?:

Yep! And the several revisions, since I'm on the lore team and we've been working on that a lot.

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:

Tajarans are fun. They have unique lore and mannerisms. They speak differently from humans, act differently, yet are alike in many ways. I believe I'd enjoy the challenges and quirks that being a Tajaran would bring. I've played them before on other servers, and they were fun.

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

The major differences are that Tajaran are usually named with arabic-themed names. They adopted this naming style some time after being discovered by humanity. Tajarans are supposed to be submissive to superiors (older ones, anyway) due to their time under the Slavemasters, while younger Tajara may be a bit more individualistic but nevertheless may find this trait ingrained into their culture. Due to this culture and their reliance on NT, they tend to be exploited some by Nanotrasen like the other alien races. (This isn't really shown IC with many Tajarans being sassy and not taking orders from anyone they don't like, but that's a different matter.)

Why does this species in particular hold your interest?

They just seem like a fun race, and I've been wanting to try and be aliens on the server for awhile so I decided to start with Tajaran, which are more common. They're interesting, and have lots of potential for RP. It'd also be fun to interact with the station Tajara more as an actual insider into the IC community, rather than peering in as a human, which is generally unwanted.

Character Name:

Hasir Gafar

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

Hasir Gafar was born on Adhomai on 2431. He grew up as one child in a household of a dozen other children. His parents had lived under the Slavemasters, and thus did little to give their children aspirations for greatness or aspiration. However, when he was 16 Hasir began spending his time in a local church to S'randarr, assisting the priests and becoming an ardent follower. He eventually gained an honorific title denoting him as a loyal follower of S'randarr and a helper of the Church, which remains a source of pride for him.

When he turned 18, he began working for a local mechanic, where his natural skill with tinkering and machines was noticed by the shop owner, R'salla. Seeing Hasir's potential, R'salla managed to convince Hasir's parents to pay for him to go off-world and train with Nanotrasen to be an engineer. When he was 22 years old, he officially began working as an engineering apprentice on the NSS Exodus. By 2456, when he is now 24 years old, he has achieved the rank of Maintenence Technician and was transferred to the NSS Aurora. He has gained skills in construction and repairing, as well as acquiring EVA training. He's had a few security incidents on his record, as he takes extreme offense to insults against S'randarr or perceived injustice against Tajara. He's gone through seminars on proper responses to these situations, and as of 2455 has not been recorded welding anyone in a locker until they apologize.

Surprisingly, Hasir is submissive and cooperative if treated well, though his desire to feel in control of his surroundings and always have a way out have seen him create false walls in areas that he frequents and a habit of continuously wearing a hardsuit helmet.

What do you like about this character?

He was my first Tajara character, actually. I used him a lot on Alium Deathtrap and I thiiink Exogenesis. He started out as a lawyer, then Chaplain after a court case turned into a riot, then became an engineer - all for IC reasons. So there's a gameplay history with him and it would be nice to have him back.

Personality wise, he's a change from my other characters. He's an individual and more outspoken than older Tajara, but still has some difficulty feeling comfortable in unfamiliar environments. He's slow to trust people, but makes a loyal friend. An interesting character that I've enjoyed since I've conjured him up.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

Pretty well. As with anyone, I strive to be better than I have been before, but I like to think I'm pretty good at it.

I vouch for you, not just because you're a good RPer, but that a solid majority of your characters are fluid and always a joy to see on station, even if I'm the idiot bald scientist making tank valve bombs for no reason at all, and then detonating them in the security wing, and then getting permabrigged by that bastard Augustus Constantine.


Joking aside, I'd like to see what you can come up with when it comes to a Kitty-Man RP. +1.

Ive played with you for quite awhile Jack, Im competent in your roleplaying abilities, and think you could play this race well. Your characters, although annoying and usually strict, are great.

+1 M8.

Jackboot is usually an asshole, no matter who they play as. However, sometimes a round needs a good asshole. On top of that, they really do roleplay and don't descend to trolling as far as I've seen. They know how to work with people to make a story, even if they aren't always the best at command. This station could use a few more aliens and I think Jackboot can handle it, I don't like them but I respect them.

+1 to this
