~ Crescentise's Hisslord Application ~

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Crescentise.

Character Names: Luna Fountain, Vitaly Zheleznikov, Lola Ih-Na, Aryss Wolfe, Kiki Ranayyah, Neil Khatchadourian, tons of others who haven't even set foot in game a single time, help, someone adopt them.

How long have you been playing on Aurora: Since December 2013.

Species you are applying to play: Unathi.

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): Out of the four main colours, I'd go with the brown-sand-yellow.

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: Honestly, there has been a recent revival of Unathi interest and I'm easily influenced by others so I sort of want to get on that bandwagon a little. There are unique interactions to be had with my hypothetical Unathi, those of interest, and the rest of the crew. Or so I think.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: You have to convert hardsuits, you are at an advantage in hand-to-hand combat. Only meat provides nutrition (arpee-wise). They have unique features to emote with – their scales, throats, tails, tongues being focal points. They have a brutal traditionalist stereotype, but a relatively untouched (player-base-wise) population of liberals.

Why does this species in particular hold your interest? I think Jackboot did a very good job with the Unathi lore, despite the race themselves being essentially scaly anthros (or in their roots at least). There's plenty to be both guided and inspired from on the wiki page.

Character Name: Deidreth Kaas.

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

The Kaas patriarch, Odolwa Kaas, was on the brink of raising his clan – its history short and peppered with cowardice - to new heights of status. He would fly with the brave crew on the first rocket to Ouere, and become a revered contributor to the legacy of the Unathi race. His abrupt death in the explosion propelled most of his kin to anguished and self-inflicted Guwandi. But not his wife, nor their young daughter Deidreth. They continued to waste away in their futureless lives on Moghes.

Neetzara Kaas had always been a bitter and oppressed woman who poured all of her feelings into pottery and primitive sculpture. However, when the second Ouerean rocket was built, she was filled with hope but for a more practical reason than her late husband. She flew with Deidreth to help colonise Ouere, and they settled there as a nuclear family unit. A fraction of what their clan used to be, yet she correctly predicted it would be to their benefit.

Where to start? The emphasis on equality was novel and liberating. Neetzara flourished into a renowned sculptress, leading an entire movement of art that even permeated Skrell and Human society with its tribal charm. The growing Deidreth saw art in kicking over her mother's work, rather than the works themselves. The influence of the Skrellian and Sol Alliance gave her technical education unparalleled on her homeworld, and cultivated her interest in, well... destruction.

Deidreth had always wondered where exactly the Traditionalist Coalition of old had obtained their atomic weapons, and how they worked. What kind of fascinating – yesss, yesss, quite horrible, but neverthelesss fassscinating - hocus pocus could demolish an entire planet such that the very fabric of society unravelled? The young Unathi female went above and beyond her studies and proceeded to become a pioneering Plasma Researcher for NanoTrasen.

What do you like about this character? I'd say she's fairly original as far as Unathi go. I mean, she's the least popular colour, gender, and department. I've also never seen another Ouerean Unathi. I am also fairly excited about using her to the benefit of Science – increasing its prominence as a department through her own vocal nature, having her interact with the crew on her breaks so that others know what a Scientist even looks like when they're not holed away doing research, bringing in departments with anything they could possibly have relative expertise with.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? Decent. I'm an unwitting cliquemeister, but well-intentioned, creative, and always striving to improve.

Notes: For the love of Nar'Sie, somebody clarify how Unathi sit down if they're reverse-jointed.

I assume everyone knows Luna Fountain, she is cute nurse character as it says her flavor text, picture and her behaviour. Well, I didn't had much intercation as my characters with Luna except some medica emergency when all the time were brought to heal my character, but I saw her before and as observing to. Luna is that character that you can say "kawaii" I like Luna as charcater and I like Crescenyise as player.

I would like to see Unathi that Crew will brign to us. +1

Crescentise has proven time and time again that she is perfectly capable of making interesting characters. I've had the opportunity to become acquainted with a few of them.

She is better known for her nurse, Luna, but some of her lesser known characters are among my favorites. Lola is an interesting example of a Skrell intellect and is more than capable of holding a conversation. Aryss is a cadet with her own set of issues and interesting mannerisms based around avoiding them. Vitaly is Vitaly. He's a brilliant example of a professional character with an agenda. Not to denounce any of traditional "good guy" characters, but I love Vitaly as he is; a doctor who finds a fine balance between helping others and helping himself.

I am confident that Crescentise will work wonders with an Unathi character and all of the opportunities for RP that the race provides.
