Focks' Moghan leezurd(Unathi) app

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key:Focks in a Bocks

Character Names: Tanja Kurita, Hasna Rishat

How long have you been playing on Aurora: just under a month and a half regularly now.

Species you are applying to play:Unathi

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): I'm flip flopping between charcoal and olive drab.

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've read the lore section and it says that while many of the Unathi that leave Moghes and Ouere follow security and engineering, they have opportunities that they'd never find on their homeworld, and so-far I've only seen a chaplain and a singular engineer, the rest have been security(not to say there aren't others out there, I just haven't met them). I was thinking of adding a little more spice to the medical department with a large, terse, somewhat annoyed lizard. I also find playing as a member of a species that's so engrained in tradition it keeps flinging them back into circles, and no one seems to mind an interesting concept.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human:As I brought up in my last sentence, they're very staunch in tradition, and generally are outright hostile to new ideas and progress beyond a snails pace. Also the social cues and ladder being much more built towards a very plain and outright submission-dominance struggle, having a very different view of subtly with a "heart of my sleeve" approach to diplomacy and conversation. That and working in space when your species is technologically a few hundred years behind, it could lead to some interesting situations (like refusing to work with the genetics department/cloners)


Character Name:Sarecks Isti'a

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

Hailing from the near-polar Janvir, Sarecks was one of many healers for the city, dealing with the injuries that accompany standard territorial disputes and the occasional band of malcontents. Old enough to remember the Contact War and subsequent issues that nuclear weapons wreaked on Moghes in detail, Isti'a finds herself disgusted with both the outside powers lacking the foresight or responsibility when doling out the tech that they did, and her own people's shear stubbornness and hypocrisy in dealing with such "gifts". After a short arranged marriage ending with her mate's premature death during the cultural shockwaves that the end of the Contact War brought, she decided to depart Janvir and make a trek to Skalamar, scraping along the best she could, offering her services to wary towns and unwelcoming clans along the way, in exchange for relatively safe passage, and scrounging whatever she could to keep going. While obviously an arduous and painful journey, just under 2 years after departing, she arrived at the center of the largest nation still in existence, and promptly sought passage off-world.

Seeking an escape from the wounded Moghes, she sought work with the megacorps working on Ouere at first, doing all she could to gain citizenship on the colony. Continuing her early profession of healer, the colony enabled her better equipment and a somewhat less harsh environment. After nearly a decade of trying to integrate into Ouerean culture, she renewed her contract with NT, and opted for space travel. After serving abroad on various ship assignments, this displaced Unathi finds herself aboard the research vessel Aurora.

What do you like about this character?

While somewhat wary of any and every species from her world view, she is able to see merits in the individual and withhold too harsh of judgement until she sees one's actions. Also fairly levelheaded compared to a lot of Unathi.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?I like to think I'm at least adequate in most respects.

Notes:I do have a singular question, most other servers seem to have a massive gender divide when it comes to Unathi with an entirely male dominated society, I didn't see near as much about that in the lore section, so I assume it's present, but possibly not to the same extent? I wanted to ask to clear it up beforehand. And as always, I'm open for questions from anyone.

The gender division is still present within our lore. Most Unathi males aren't very fond of anyone of the female orientation whatsoever.

Women are indeed still seen as property in our lore. I should probably make that more obvious on the wiki page; I apologize if it's not easy to parse! I'll have another go at the page, later, and see if I can reshuffle it to make finding the important things like that a bit easier.

Anyway, this is a really interesting application, and I have in mind to accept it if there isn't anything drastic brought up in counter-argument within the next two days.

+1. HASNA <3

Seriously though - Hasna Rishat is easily one of the most fun, adorable and BLOODY RELIABLE (She saved my characters' hide more times than I can count) characters I've interacted with. If Sarecks is as deft in medical (at least that's what it feels like it's going to be) as Hasna is in Research, we're going to have one hell of a doctor aboard. I'm looking forward to it...

even though it means that I'll get to play less with Hasna ;_;
