Mitchs98 IPC Whitelist Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Mitchs98

Character Names: Lucas Anderson

How long have you been playing on Aurora: I play on and off at times, decided to try to server recently due to learning about a few jobs and such.

Species you are applying to play: IPC

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): Gray

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Didn't see any links to it on the forums or the Aurora wiki, if need be I can look over it 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 really would like to play this race as my human character, aside from one random one that I use to fill the clown slot on Phoenix, are rarely played. In-fact, 90% of my recent RP is playing as either IPC, Cyborg, Kidan, or Clown. Mostly IPC and Kidan. I really like playing IPC's due to the fact they all have different unique personalities that are different than even humans, allowing for more free range of RP.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: RP'ing IPC's are different than humans entirely. They don't feel pain, they don't eat, etc. Some of them have human-esque emotions, some of them tend to lean towards stereotypical AI such as 'Unit is doing X.' etc. Some don't even talk at all. IPC's in general are usually smarter than most humans, highly proficient in whatever department they are currently tasked to work in.


Character Name: V.A.N.G.U.A.R.D

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

V.A.N.G.U.A.R.D Aritifical Intelligence unit. A very smart Intelligence created by NanoTransen, considered childlike from the personality, but is actually very knowledgeable. He has served as the NSS Phoenixs' AI many times, he also served as a borg. During this time he acquired vast knowledge of medical treatment and surgery, spending most of his time as a borg and IPC in the medical field. He also knows how to mix most basic medicine off hand.

While he is mostly prone to a job in medical to assist the fleshies he has been known to do some security work, thus gaining knowledge of space law and basic weaponry such as the tazer.

Mostly serving on the Phoenix, He has however been known to serve on other stations. Generally, He likes helping people.

What do you like about this character?

I'll admit, I based his original personality heavily off of Claptrap from borderlands(no, he is not a troll character.) I like him due to the fact he is a mostly care-free excited IPC. He refers to humans as fleshies, Unathi as scalies, etc. Generally I like playing him due to his personality, it's very fun and people usually like RP'ing with him. I'd really love to have this accepted even though I haven't played on Aurora much.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

I'd rate my RP mid-excellent, personally. Though it's not perfect. But hey, what is, am I right?

Notes: EDIT: Just in-case it wasn't obvious from the records, if this is approved I will be applying for a CMO whitelist as well.

I've always been a fan of carelessly cheerful robots. We've had a few great players for that (DuckDuckNoose, SomeKindOfPony), but I find we're quite lacking on IPCs who aren't super serious atm, and I always thought that kind of personality was better fitted for IPCs than regular cyborgs or AIs.
