Draculabot's Diona Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Draculabot

Character Names: Rebecca McGrath

How long have you been playing on Aurora: A few months.

Species you are applying to play: Diona

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

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 want to play Diona because they're so different and alien than human beings. They - by definition - are so different from us that putting myself in that mindset, trying to play the deliberate thinker or schemer as opposed to the more fast-paced and for-the-moment McGrath would be interesting; Especially given the Diona's mechanics, life cycle, and how they interact with other races.

I want to play Diona because they're strange, and I love the strange and weird.

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

Diona are tree-men. They can vary from small seeds to rings of organisms surrounding the corona of stars. Diona are slow, deliberate, and infinitely curious, and are gentle and non-violent. They also do not do well in the dark, and speak like they move- Carefully, slowly, and deliberately.

Diona may miss out on human cues, such as the importance of sleeping, the need to wear clothing, or other quirks of other organic species. They also are cute as babies, unlike humans.


Character Name: Song of the Stars

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

Song of the Stars is a rather old Diona that has hardened due to age, growing a hard bark covering over the area of his bodies that aren't joints. Born ages ago, the diona has gone from being able to speak a great deal of things, even teach, to speaking phrases containing his own name or words within it, due to hardening of the fibrous materials of his body.

He has been working various odd jobs for the station, slowly and deliberately, finding peace and tranquility in menial work and exploration of the galaxy and his thoughts. He enjoys reading and meeting new people, despite the difficulties he has with communication.

What do you like about this character?

I want to create a Scruffy-esque character who's always doing some different minor job in the background. I want a character who represents the strangeness of working on a station with aliens, I want to write a funny scene where a slow and plodding diona janitor has to get to the other end of the station to deal with a spill and taking thirty minutes. I like the idea of the character because it lends itself to so much; Comedy most of all, along with drama and self-discovery.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

Good, but I've had trouble spots here and there. I'm not the best by any means, but I like to think of myself as creative.

Song of the Stars seems like a character much different than Draculabot usually plays, from what I've seen. A treant sage, as opposed to a lot of screaming... I've noticed that to be a motif across their characters.

Rebecca's been a breath of fresh air for me as a character as opposed to many other characters I've seen. A fairly lighthearted person that can be a little silly and over the top at times. A very enjoyable character for me; I'd like to see them play a diona. The only thing that I think I might see is a diona screaming and rustling over the radio very loudly.

I endorse this.
