Filthyfrankster Unathi application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Filthyfrankster

Character Names: Zubari Akenzua

How long have you been playing on Aurora: Less than a week. Extended play time is guaranteed.

Species you are applying to play: Unathi.

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): Dark red. (If you don't count a bit of self-painted white scales of his.)

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes. Quite a bit of difference from the baylore version of the Unathi lore, but the Aurora version is what I will visit with any future questions about their backstory, not to mention it's very attention to detail and answers burning thoughts and questions I had about the race.

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:

The unathi lore can be considered standard for any xeno race in this type of setting. But what really appeals to me is the details about the specie itself. A battle hardened, majority come from an un-forgiving environment and culture. Not being able to quite ignore a seven foot tall reptilian humanoid walking into the room full of humans, which had me interested in the race after reading much more into their backstory. Each Unathi having a different few of the other species they communicate with and the tales from their previous experiences, how they speak and react to situations with aggression.

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

Humans can be quite interesting if played right, along with any other species. Unathi have a interesting build to them, being a majority of the tallest among the crew onboard a space station and definitely the most strongest. Dealing with anyone who looks at them with suspicion and doubt due to their home planet, past actions and way of life. Defending their pride and honor and willing to escalate to violence to defend it if anyone ever dared challenged them. Any other of the kin who look away from their culture being considered exiles and looked down upon by their own kind.

Character Name: Zubari Akenzua

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

A hatchling to a rather abundant family. Zubari seemed to have a difficult time adjusting to his fellow kin and the life on Moghes, save for a sister or two that had a respect for him. Failing to understand the purpose of remaining on the home planet. His parents, brothers and sisters seeming determined on living out the rest of their lives in the wasteland. Having other interests in mind, he began to think about a different approach to his life. Being entranced by merchants, traders or anyone of wealth that he ever encountered. Still holding onto what he understood from the culture of his species and the past way of life as he aged along with the rest of his kindred until he was of a considerable adult age. Having being interested in gaining wealth and seeking to make a fortune, he was persuaded enough with an offer to come and work for a cargo company on Mars. This was a start.

Life on a more civilized planet was quite the change to accustom to, being thrown into Olympia as he learned more about the common language in his traveling. The job was simple, work security for a minor export company, and making sure situations do not escalate or the company property was not stolen by any un-wanted perpetrators. The security field seeming to be his calling due to his species size and past violent history on Moghes. Employers and fellow coworkers considering him a 'natural' at the job. While Zubari tried to adapt to the majority human culture outside of his home. Paycheck and other methods of earning credits through gambling after learning the basics of the un-healthy and addicting hobby, encountering a fellow unathi,Kir, and understanding eachothers situations and learning about her story. He offered to bring her under his arms, considering her family and allowing the use of his clan name for her.

What do you like about this character?

Zubari is a down to planet individual, accepting the fact that his home planet is doomed to begin with after first seeing it in the shape as a young unathi and experiencing the life humans do in a city that he spent years living in a human populated city. Being away from his people and spending time with other races steering him away from one's old culture. Making his way around from gambling and work and seeing the fun, eventful side of living in a planet like Mars, encouraging him to have expensive and well-mannered behaviors in social situations. That an aggressive, ill-mannered disrespectful unathi would not pass in a society controlled and being employed by humans.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? I'm told I'm an excellent roleplay partner if the moment ever comes to me. Overall, I'm good.


Due to living around humans, the art of tattooing being an interesting art form to him. Zubari inherited the art of body (You could consider it scale) painting, Ranging from coating his horns, claws and scales in a white body paint for cosmetic reasons.

I also have a bit of a full reference picture (You'll have to excuse some things, such as his snout and not quite getting it right.) http://i.imgur.com/FeYVQnO.png

This looks like a superb application! Nice picture, too. The only respectful, polite Unathi regular Aurora had died a canon death of old age recently. Here's to hoping you can fill that much-craved niche, while adding your own original twist. What's he going to work? Cargo? I'm excited to see your character around!~

Polite is a huge understatement (I kid) Don't think he's a pure pacifist.

On a past server I played him on, He was in a bit more of a detective field, Due to the 'SNAZZY' uniforms, technology he had to work with and the fact he wasn't directly involved in any violent situations unless it was brought to him first.

So. He'll be working a bit of CSI/Detective and RARELY any security once I get his employment records finished up and pushed out the door. (I find working actual security a pain in the ass, even if the community feels great and accepting.)

Zubari is a total sucker for cop shows/CHEESY FILM NOIR genre holomovies. So those have a major influence along with his first job while adjusting to things on Mars.

This is one of the first 'assimilated' Unathi characters I've seen proposed. It seems really interesting - application accepted.
