Focks in a Bocks Tajara app

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key:Focks in a Bocks

Character Names:Tanja Kurita

How long have you been playing on Aurora:Sparely for a few months now, only regularly and frequently for the past 2 weeks

Species you are applying to play:Tajara

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt):Timberwolf, which is a soft grey, with a hint of beige.(219,215,210)

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 thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to play something different than human, and look at it as an avenue to be creative and create interesting roleplay opportunities. I also like the idea of the tajara being the "new kids on the block" and not necessarily being on the same level as the other species, on top of having the curve-ball of only being free for just over a single generation and having to contend with how they're going to proceed. I also think it makes you think outside the box, having to play within the limitations set out by the species, sure they have a tail, but they also have a tail, what happens if it gets caught in a door or broken, throwing them entirely off balance, for example.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human:Generally new comers to the galactic scene, since their discovery was a mere 40 years, ago, there would obviously still be a degree of misunderstanding from ignorance of customs and culture. Also dealing with a very unsteady relationship with government, having one of the old ruling clans in power with a human backed government makes for tension where there might not be. Also, my above point, having to take into consideration other factors and possibilities, like not being able to work in heavy gear too long for risk of overheating.

Character Name:Hasna Rishat

Please provide a short back-story for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs

Being the unlucky spawn between a Njarir and a M'sai, she unfortunately displays a number of traits associated with her Njarir ancestry, causing a level of disdain and abuse among her peers. Rishat was born off-world to Hikmat, who on the losing side of the rebellion, fled Ahdomai; and Arash a simple worker who was later drawn to the idea that there were ways to help rebuild off-world Soon after Hasna was born, the pair returned to their homeland, where Hikmat became a teacher. Coming from fairly humble beginnings Hasna was intensely curious about the world around her, less interested in the "hows" and "whys" of the rebuilding culture, but the new technologies flooding in from the furless visitors from the skies. Being lucky enough to have been raised literate, and located in a large enough city to observe the rapid advancement of technology, Hasna eventually began to look up, much as her parents before her, but with a different urgency than to escape turmoil.

Her ideas of what should life should be like out in space obviously influenced by Nanotrasen, and knowing how easily new blood can be taken advantage of, Rishat gladly signed a contract with her would be benefactors. Her innate curiosity made her a good intern candidate for the science team, being fairly expendable and more than willing to deal with the danger to sate her curiosity. Though initially disappointed, as she didn't get to leave Adhomai; Hasna has progressed through 4 years of training and hard work, and graduated from a lowly intern to a full fledged member of NT science division, and is scheduled to ship out to her new post, finally seeing what lays waiting somewhere in the heavens.

What do you like about this character? She's excitable, mild-mannered, friendly, and while easy to step on has a lot of endurance and hope.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?As I said in my other whitelist application, I find others opinions on this of greater importance, but I believe myself more than capable of playing any of the alien races well.

Notes:Feel free to ask any questions, or if I missed something. This time I luckily found the entire app before posting!

Still, I'd have to RP with you a bit to make my decision. Reserving this post, I'll edit it if I come up with a decision.

Edit: Ghosted around a bit, observed some things develop. Hopped over to the bay forums to look up your name, and most of the regulars over there never took issue with you. Still, you got the concept down, which is to be expected coming from another Heavy RP server. You've played Taj before, though our lore may or may not be different, I'm not 100% clear on that, though.

I'll back this application.

I have has multiple interactions with Focks' character Tanja. My first impression of Focks was something to the effect of "this person knows what they are doing." Since then, I have RP'ed with Focks several times on station and I find myself enjoying the character as she is brought to light.

My only problem with this app is that it means I will have less time to get to know Focks' other characters.

I love the thought put into this character. I look forward to seeing them around the station. I enjoy Focks' RP and have no doubt that they will bring Hasna to life in a way that we can all enjoy.

Enjoy your fur and tail.
