Vision's Unathi Race Whitelist

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: A Vision of Sound.

Character Names: Attimus Vin'Drahl.

How long have you been playing on Aurora: Not very long, though this is subject to change, should you approve my Whitelist.

Species you are applying to play: Unathi.

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): White, or in other words, albino.

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

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: Unathi are practically the only race I enjoy playing. They allow for such detailed and interesting interactions with other people in such a way that I simply don't enjoy playing as any other race. Unathi are, without a doubt, my favorite species in SS13.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: For one, Unathi are, in most cases, larger in most ways than humans. They also have a speech impediment, though they offer much greater dialogue, interactions, actions themselves, and an entirely different attitude than humans.


Character Name: Attimus Vin'Drahl.

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs Attimus Vin'Drahl is typically considered a by-the-books Unathi. He has a bit of a temper issue, he's rather large and muscular, and he abides by his traditions to no end. That being said however, once you get past his rough exterior, you will be hard-pressed to find someone who has as much compassion and understanding as him.

His early life started with being abandoned as a child, shortly after he was hatched, on Moghes. A native species, similar to that of a rat, began gnawing on his foot, attempting to eat him. In that moment, Attimus forgot his immense sorrow, and was instead filled with nothing but incessant rage. Why did he have to be the one who was abandoned? Why was he the one being eaten? Why wasn't he doing anything about it? It's all he could think about, until it filled him to his core. He snapped the rat's neck and ate it then and there, and set out to make a name for himself. Attimus Vin'Drahl. The ebony-horned, seven-and-a-half-foot-tall albino Unathi, was born that day.

What do you like about this character? Attimus Vin'Drahl is without a doubt my favorite character, and nothing so far has made me even consider changing that. I at least hope you can somewhat tell the passion in this text when I say that Attimus is indeed, a very well-written character who is unrelentingly brutal on the outside, yet has an interesting inside that's just waiting to be breached.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? I have been told by numerous people, legitimately in the dozens, that I am a fantastic roleplayer. I would not consider myself bad in the slightest, and I would only hope you would consider allowing me to play as a Unathi.

This sparked a really interesting conversation on the lorechat. I'll give my position as loremaster and current curator of the Unathi race.

An albino unathi would face difficulties unusual to the race - namely an inability to even travel during the day during his time on Moghes. Albinoism makes it dangerous to your health to be in the harsh sun, and Moghes' ozone is still thin or barren while a huge desert is spreading across the planet as the consequences of their atomic war years before.

The sun would be too severe for an albino to survive there, they'd never be able to go outside, they'd need to stay inside with heatlamps and only go out at night. Albino unathi would either have mostly all died out, or still be actively dying out if they aren't well off in the still-healthy Untouched Lands.

This gives your albino unathi a unique reason to be working on the Aurora - to escape a short, uncomfortable life on Moghes. And albinoism is common in both crocodiles and lizards so it's fine with me. As long as you recognize that your character could never return to Moghes without developing severe health complications, i'm all for it.

The fear that we're opening the floodgates to a horde of albinos is an amusing one. I've only seen like 2 albinos in my time playing Aurora. If it becomes some big controversy I'll deal with it then or just allow unathi to be white in addition to bright red and jet black because come on.

While broad debates in a specific app can discourage the applied and who's relevance is subjective, the point is still taken. In a similar case in the future well refine how to handle it. Perhaps moving the more off-topic posts to the lore questions thread?

Regardless, subject matter is settled, on-topic from here on out please. If you have questions or concerns pm me directly.

Again, the app has my +1 if my comments are considered by the applier.
