TheCritsyBear's Tajaran Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: TheCritsyBear

Character Names: Andy (Android), Calico (Formerly URSA), Vincent Arcirial, Witch, Snake Samurai, and a wizard that one time.

How long have you been playing on Aurora: I forget but I'd say enough people know me to vouch that it's been a while.

Species you are applying to play: Tajaran.

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): "Beaver Brown", as you named it.

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes I have. Quite thoroughly, I add.

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:

To be honest, for a long time I didn't want anything to do with them. Sure, they were nice to see and most of them were great characters, but I wanted to stay far away from playing as one. Though, I read some of their lore and some other misc. lore and was inspired to make a character. Now, all I want to do is at least try to get approved. A lot of people probably weren't expecting this. xD

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

Well, apart from physiological differences which I read quite well on, the social place of Tajara are entirely different from that of humans. As well as their cultural background, origins, ethnicity... There's no real way to describe how they are different, because they are simply too different to easily put into words. It's not like roleplaying a human with fur.


Character Name: Sakhar Brooke

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

Sakhar was born after the discovery of his species, but before the liberation of Adhomai. The exact date of his birth is unknown, however he is approximated to be in his forties. His official, legal birthday would make him 37. He has few, if any memories of his homeworld, as during the tension and chaos, he was one of the fortunate war-time "Orphans" to be "Adopted" by kind offworld benefactors. These saintly individuals were not without their alterior motives however, and although he was taken away from the violence and poor conditions, he also lost any parental figures and his right to grow and be a child freely. They did not want children to love and protect, they wanted a barbaric child to make their public image shine, and subjects to map and document the Tajaran genome. Sakhar happened to be one of them. A poster child for Tajaran integration, and an unwilling pioneer for Tajaran genetics.

His life was not cruel, and in fact he didn't even mind. He was comfortable, and, from his recollection, his life was never any different. Apart from at one point vaguely recalling having a mother, of course. He was never subjected to any cruel genetic testing, superpower experiments, or even more bizarre trials, only examined regularly and scanned repeatedly. He was, however, a test subject for more mainstream modifications. To date, he does not seem to be any worse for it.

He was provided a fine education, even if occasionally bullied. Though, this was not provided out of care for him as a child, but to keep up appearances as the uneducated coal-shoveling barbarian uplifted to fine society and higher education. Although he was incredibly bored by his appointments as a child, when he matured the research he was subjected to left him very intrigued by the subject, and in the future he went on to gain a higher education in the field.

As his species began to emerge more in galactic society, it finally occured to him just how different his life was from what he left behind. He was gracious for being removed from the violence of Adhomai in civil crisis, but felt that he lost something important to him, as a Tajaran. He tried many times to get connected to his roots, but was never able to. He attended Tajaran gatherings, seeked to meet with particularly cultured or wise Tajara, but always it ended with nothing. They told him that he was too far disconnected from his heritage to even be considered one of their kin, and further accentuated the point by speaking in their native language, in which he was not fluent. At all.

Now, he is a fully grown adult, finally allowed to find his own path. No longer living off of his benefactors, no longer bound to colleges and internships. His upbringing has left him somewhat entitled, but not cold-hearted, and desperately trying to find somebody to connect him to his heritage. He of course carries the common mental deviations to be expected from children raised without any parental figures at all, but they are not debilitating.

His most distinguishing feature from others of his species is the lack of a linguistic accent and speech patterns, only carrying the accent brought by differences to humans in physiology that could only be fixed by years of speech therapy, as well as incredible ignorance to his own history and not even knowing the language of his people.

What do you like about this character?

The potential for roleplay with other Tajara as either an entitled traitor to their own race, or a very lost soul in need of help. Also, roleplay in genetics that doesn't revolve around self-hulking and super powers and stuff and smashing up science, and instead doing actual science and research stuff.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?


But seriously ask someone else. I can't judge myself seriously.



"Ted Wasanasong calls Khan a "banana" - a derogatory term for an Asian who is "yellow on the outside, white on the inside" - making him think he has lost touch with his Laotian heritage."
