Cassy's Head Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: cassy_jenelle

Character names: Penny Islington, DENDRITIC, Lhinton Lovely, Marlowe Falkon, Elizabeth Hawthorne, Chawcer Pem

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Since December, approximately 7 months

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I want to contribute to the roleplay of civilian departments as well as helping things happen more IC'ly, as well as general departments in situations to facilitate roleplay. I feel I can contribute a competent and appreciated head.

Why did you come to Aurora?: Looking for HRP servers on hub, came across this by chance.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?: Yes I have.

Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph each.

Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about:

Roleplay to me is acting, putting yourself in the perspective of a character and acting in character. Role playing on ss13 is the collaboration of several characters on one game medium, it requires trust on both sides and an ability to show both courtesy and care to other players. Roleplay should be both both grounded, serious, and consistent but easygoing, enjoyable, open and fun and I find this balance very important and try to implement it into my playing style.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?:

I believe the OOC purpose of a head of staff is to accept responsibility for the maintenance of the department, ensuring that your colleagues within the department are kept to their lane as well as ensuring that new players are given a chance to learn the ropes. I also believe that it is the job of a head to make sure that the department is operating well and seeing that issues within it are deal with efficiently while keeping things enjoyable OOC'ly for other players.

But, I believe just doing that is the bare essentials. A think that a very good whitelisted player goes one step further to making their head into an enjoyable character to be around. Like, "Man, I really love that head!". :lol:

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:

I think that one important thing that any whitelisted or long term player must do is ensure that the power they have is used correctly and is not abused in any way. A leader in any form must be objective and just, and that applies to IC and OOC.

To put to picture, I believe that a person who plays a head must be able to understand that their role isn't just for their enjoyment, but has the influence on other people's play-styles as well. I would strive towards ensuring that my IC actions have a positive effect on others in-game.


Please pick one of your characters for this section, and provide well articulated responses to the following questions.

Character name:Chawcer Pem

Character age:35

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs):

Chawcer was born on Sol, Mars, she grew up with her adoptive family who raised her in a working class colony. She studied well and worked hard, she fortunately managed to enlist into a high class private school where she received a good standard of education. She moved on from her place of origin and moved to Mendell City with her job and eventually got promoted forward as a HR and Employment director of a corporation; she left due to personal circumstances. She is quite ambitious and holds a confident, stable and contented demeanor, but holds mild insecurities about her status due to her background.

Her personality is rather mature, but she also has a social, seemingly extroverted personality. That said, she does keep a lot about her to herself.

What do you like about this character?:

What I like about Chawcer is that she's quite reliable and knows when to be serious, at the same time she's not a stick in the mud and understands both the work and social intricacies that happen within a workplace - so she's easygoing as well. She's intuitive and quick witted and she is quite creative with her thoughtset and can think outside the box. Friendly but intelligent as well as socially apt.

What do you dislike about this character?:

Chawcer likes making sure things go well, and does not like to even leave her home without a schedule. She rests herself on making sure she knows what she's doing at all times, actually also gets a bit dis-encouraged if things fail which is her weakpoint, but can be easily self re-motivated and switch to on-the-go if needed.

What do you think makes this character fit to be a head of staff?:

She feels most secure making sure plans have good foundations so they don't topple at the first trial, she can both think for the drawing board and on her feet spontaneously. She can be a nice person to work with and listens and contributes when she can, she looks out for other employees. She also has a strong sense of fairness as well as empathy towards others, and works towards building a team.


Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?:

8/10. It's not perfect. It's not bad either. I'd say it's pretty good. I could put more detail in emotes (and I have been) but I love developing my characters which are all vastly different to one another, I'm open to critique on how to improve it as well so that's a plus.

Extra notes:

Nothing more to add. I think I play slightly better when drunk. Anyone ever feel the same way? (Naw, I'm pulling your legs.)

I think the 8/10 is a bit too modest. Cassy is on of the best RPers on the server and one of the veteran SS13 players. I have no doubt she can handle the Head of Staff position without much issue.

Bozaka Actually beat me to the cut, I was about to say the exact same thing. Cassie is one of the best RPers we have here and This has my full support.

I like Cassy's flavor text. Her Rp is on the highest level. That can be noticable on each server where you can find Cassy. She can play multiple characters with complitely different behaviour(what I cannot do:D). I am sure she is an excellent candidate for Head Of Staff role!

Cassie's characters are highly varied, developed, and a joy to interact with or observe. From the co-dependent Dendritic to the insufferable loveable rich-bitch Elizabeth, all of them are testament to her high skill with arpee. I haven't seen much of Chawcer yet, but I have faith in Cassie's ability to make her a competent, well-known character and head of staff. She also has good knowledge of corporate regulations and all that jazz. I completely trust Cassie with a position of power.
