Ryfer's IPC application.

Recommended Posts


Ryfus Ryfer

Character Names:

Axton Florent, Acel Delrico, Lane Davis, others that nobody knows at all.

How long have you been playing on Aurora:

Six months-ishy.

Species you are applying to play:


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

More swag

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

I read bay's and the little bit we have, but couldn't find much else?

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:

Because I find IPCs to be incredibly entertaining, and honestly the most appealing to play as from past experience. They have so much flexibility with how they can behave, from a cold, emotionless to machine to a dorky robot full of energy and happiness; unable to be made sad due to just being made that way. They're something that adds a bit of fun to the station among all of the other races with how much variety they bring to the table, and I wish to give it a go myself. ((Also beepbeepbuzzping.))

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

The difference that interests me the most, is how emotions can be looked at with an IPC as I mentioned before. Unlike Hugh Manns and any other races for that matter, they can have the ability to just feel nothing or only something else in particular. There's the change of being able to act much differently in certain situations, which just adds more of a fun element to things for me.

Character Name: Phobos

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

Phobos was created at a military research facility with his brother IPC Deimos, with the original purpose to help train soldiers. They dealt with advanced training exercises, however, due to the nature of their programming, they beat the trainees badly in each test they were involved in. Finding this programming more harmful than anything, they were shut down, taken apart, and redesigned from being 'criminals' for the sake of having them act less aggressive when being used for testing. Through this, their personalities changed from that of an everyday criminal to a more innocent and justice-driven state of mind.

Along with this change, their skills were also vastly reduced. With this, they were put back into the training exercises for a small while, though the reduction in skill and change of personality proved for them to be less fit for military duties. Once this had been discovered after several tests, an option was offered to the two IPCs. They had the choice open to work as common security for the NSS Aurora to pay for their freedom, as the research facility found that they did not have much of a use for them. This would prove to give a fair amount of money back to the facility as the two IPCs earned their freedom over time.

What do you like about this character?

I like that he was originally an edgy fighter that was made with skills that surpassed that of a well-trained soldier, and ended up to be a dorky and much less(Though still acceptably) competent security officer. He is careless and joyful, quite happy that he has his freedom even though he is still in the process of paying for it.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

Like five baguettes?


Maybe six?

+1. Axton Florent is an outstanding character (and VERY active RD/scientist), and is actually in my character's list of "people who make a shift better", and the application is pretty solid - without mentioning that this is very much planned as there is another application for Deimos, the brother. Looking forward to seeing it in action.

+1. Ryfer is a good roleplayer. I've seen them make interesting and complex characters, like Acel, who also don't just go overboard all the time and break down constantly (ha self-depreciating humor). They also seem to have a rather nice idea of the potential applications for an IPC, and I would personally like to see them actually use this type of character to its full potential.

As in, there is no way anyone can possibly deny you a clank experience. For the above reasons already listed, I'll repeat anyway. Ryfer's been here for as long as I've been here, possibly more, and I recall the Acel Delrico character being a pretty enjoyable entity to be around ICly. I've nothing but fond memories since then... makes me wonder where the hell you even disappeared off to, as I saw that character stopped being played until recently.

Anyway, without any further ado, I place my endorsement with this application.
