Nilsius's Tajaran Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Nilsius

Character Names: Jake Miller, Jack Joller

How long have you been playing on Aurora: 2 weeks

Species you are applying to play: Tajaran

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): Beaver Brown (RGB 159, 139, 112)

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

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:

Firstly, because I'd like to play in a different style every so often instead of constantly playing a human. Secondly, I like this race most of all compared to the other races, they have this sense of trust and loyalty to close ones and friends which is something I can greatly respect and love to abide by. Thirdly, I've already got experience playing this race and my old main character is part of it, would love to be able to play him at Aurora as well every now and then.

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

They're a race that comes from a whole different society, religion and ways of living. Not only is the environment vastly different from that of which humans are used to, with freezing cold temperatures, but the Tajara as a species have only just begun experiencing 'true freedom' and new technology that human corporations introduced themselves with. With the 'slavemaster' times not too long behind them, this and many other factors will make playing a Tajara different than playing a human in my opinion.


Character Name: Ji'rir Simahni

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

Since he was a young child, Ji'rir had always been creative, playful and kind towards the world and others, though this changed the more as he grew up. He was the youngest one in the family, with two parents and an older brother, the family being a mix between Hrarar and M'sai. His mother had been working as a nurse in an hospital and his father a guard for some shop owner. They lived in Nal'tor's more outer slum area, where the more unfortunate poor classes of Tajaran society lived.

As he grew up, Ji'rir became more serious, if it were not already hard enough for them to live with what little money they had to spend, it was demanded of him that he would make the best out of his classes at school and study the best he could. It was something he disliked doing, preferring to slack on the couch or play around outside with other kids. Hence this, he made little friends during his childhood and would be one of the reasons as to not caring to stay much on the planet or in the city at which he grew up in. One of the things he did love at school and college was being creative, wether it was in drawing, singing or playing a musical instrument. As he got into college, financial problems grew, with both his parents having lost their jobs and his older brother not being able to get one, more pressure was put on Ji'rir to get one. Deciding for one, he thought that making art and music would not provide enough pay, and thus went for another thing he liked doing, cooking.

Finally at the end of college, he and his classmates were given the chance to take up the chance to work for NT. Not only would it be awesome to work in space and meet new people, if not new species, it would also take him away from the place he did not feel much for. It also offered an immediate job for him and without thinking twice, he accepted. Financial problems were by now no longer the biggest one he and his family had, fights between the members had also been escalating, something which Ji'rir would most likely never talk about, not even to his closest friends.

The current situation of Ji'rir is by far better than that of his past. Having worked on one of NT's many space vessels for over a full year, in that time he had met many good friends, gained much experience and even a few other things that he'd keep rather personal. Though, the time had come for him to move to another station once more as that one seemingly needed him more than others. With much other stuff to note and expand much more on, I'll leave it at this and would like to keep the rest secret. Perhaps to be found out by others In-Character.

What do you like about this character?

I like the sad yet unique backstory I came up with for him (this one not being the full one, by far). I also really love his personality, something that helps me play him more easily than any of my other characters.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? 7/10 - I might've roleplayed for almost ten years now, but that hasn't made me master the ability to make every sentence and emote my character makes be top notch, not that it's required. I've made myself learn a basis of RP and sticked to a style that has been most comfortable for me.

Notes: I've moved here from BS12 because I felt like this community provides a more fun experience and better roleplay than the past one at the moment. Have mostly been playing Jake Miller these past two weeks and hope I made a good first impression! Would also be fun to see other players from BS12 here as well, perhaps if some are here that already know me and could vouch for me, that'd be nice ^^

I like the backstory given for the character, particularly that its not all good and peachy, but isn't an orphan either, and the application in general. But, before I give a +1, I'd like to see you in action with one of your other characters first (I haven't met either one yet, oddly enough XD)
