Magitech's Tajara Whitelist

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key:Saddemiboys

Character Names:Sicily Vagrant, Aruzhan Tsoi, Isaisha Holtzmann, Veniamin Tikhonov

Species you are applying to play:Tajara

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

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?:I've read all of the lore pages, but I kinda just skimmed the Skrell one.

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've suddenly found myself interested with their lore. Also, I'd like to break the notion that Tajara players must belong to a certain clan or family, to allow more people to be interested in the species without worrying about being accepted by any certain Tajara cliques.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human:Tajara come from a very different environment from the rest of the civilized interstellar community. Similarly to the Unathi, the Tajara homeworld was engulfed in a large scale war, though much more recently, with the effects far more prevalent even into the modern day. Being adapted to a subarctic environment means that Tajara are very particularly sensitive about heat, to the point of their fur prickling up at even slightly higher than room temperature. Tajara are also very tight knit, often knowing of and interacting with families on the opposite side of a city. Also, he speaks in the thirrrd perrrson.


Character Name:Anand Rahal

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphsAnand is a M'sai Tajara born to a family of soldiers and scouts, calling his home the outskirts of Nal'tor. Being born a mere four years after the war has had a profound impact on his psyche. A large portion of his childhood was spent with other families, helping them clean away remnants of conflict and repair damaged infrastructure. During this time, a sense of needing to be a part of something helpful was ingrained in his mind, regardless of physical risk. As he also had very little schooling as a child, hardly any of it traditional, he never quite learned how to read or write particularly well.

In his early adulthood, Anand found work in a risky field- minesweeping and trap disarming, thinking basic menial labor at the hands of vast Interstellar states to be above him, for whatever reason. An important part of any expanding Tajara settlement was ensuring that areas that had been engaged in conflict were safe to resettle. This involved large amounts of minesweeping and ensuring all buildings were free of traps such as shotguns attached to tripwires and grenades hidden under objects. Granted, this has also lead to the injuries and fatalities of many Tajara scouts. Anand, a risk taker who would do anything to support his people, took the job without hesitation, his M'sai physiology perfect for his work.

For the past two years, Anand has made his way around various NanoTrasen space stations in the S'rand'marr system as a janitor and cargo worker. Only recently has he immigrated to the Republic, on accounts of him wishing to see the world outside of the S'rand'marr system and to learn about it's wonderful fleshy, scaly and squishy inhabitants.

What do you like about this character?He's caring, trusting, and protective, but often throws himself into reckless danger. Also, he has problems reading, which could lead to some interesting situations.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? Good, I've played for quite a while and overcome quite a few of my problems.

Notes:I might work on finishing the extremely rushed ending. I'm sleepy.

I like the backstory so far; though the ending could use a little work. Something that might help you out a bit is answering this question:

What caused Anand to go from his minesweeping/trap searching role to working aboard NanoTrasen vessels as a janitor and cargo technician?

I honestly don't think I've seen any of the characters listed that you play, but I'll be sure to be keeping a look out when I am online to get a feel for how you play.
