Character Names: Poslan Kur'yer, Emily O'Harron, Ida Cox, Issek Boyd, Miracle Kifer, Jackson Sullivan, Alisa Keener, Faith Hawkins, Rozhad Alakiv, Candace Grey, Ser Knyght, Postav Algara, and a few other characters that I haven't played since 2014.

Species you are applying to play: Dionaea D.Sapenis

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

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: Ill be one step closer to becoming a race master, and collect all species in my whitelist balls. There aren't really enough Dionaea players, and I want to fix that. Im just one person, but people seem to like my non-human characters, so if Im just one person with a really good character, maybe more people will be encourage to bolster the Diona player base. not only that, but Im still trying to better myself as a writer and RPer, and being a Diona will help that because-

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: -Diona are not humans. They're not remotely human. Diona are bloody living, sentient plants, that just happen to take humanoid form, sometimes. Not only that, but they're a siphonophorae, and they have to work together to actually function. You have to think "what would plants A, B, and 3 want to do together?" and its also a normal that Dionaea are more logical and intelligent, as well as thoughtful, so they don't think like a Skrell or Humans.

Character Name: The East Wind That Lays Waste To All In It's Path, Seeks out the Unworthy and Plucks Them From The World. (East Wind for short)

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

Nymphs probably would never, ever, make good pets. Or so you might think, but its happened at least once, on Earth. A small set of nymphs were bought, under the table, for a family to keep as pets. There were four, and all of them were basically treated like dogs, literal dogs. Pet, walked, given food from a can, even though they never ate it. That treatment came from the youngest child of the family, not that any of them cared to learn the names of their "family." However, there was one other child, a young adult from what can be remember, who was obsessed with the old times, before the human race touched the stars. Even though that child never cared about the nymphs, the nymphs like his company more than the smaller child, who treated them like animals. They spent large drags of time with the older child, watching the old recordings and reruns of the older shows and the newer remakes he liked, it gave them a reason to stay with him, over the younger one.

Then something happened. Something wonderful, and some horrible. The older one had to leave for collage. Meaning they would be left, alone, with the ones that treated them like idiots. That was the horrible, than came the wonderful. A commercial came on while the nymphs were spending one last marathon with him. Finally, in hundreds of years, it was finally happening... Sherlock Season 4 was announced. In celebration, the older child turned on the last episode of Sherlock for the nymphs, but he had to leave while it was going. The gesalt would remember two things from that day. The older child, and Sherlock's speech about "The East Wind." Thats what they thought of the family now. An East Wind, that came to pick them before, since they were unworthy to become a full formed adult Diona earlier. Now they were ready. They were older, smarter, and they learned all they needed, they thought, to solve crimes there, watching the consulting detective. So they formed, and left that family. They had to seek a job, to pass time while (im)patiently waiting for season 4.

What do you like about this character? Can I say everything? I like that hes a diona, his backstory, and I gave myself a little chuckle while thinking and writing this up.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? 7-8/10

I interacted with most of the characters listed and I have nothing bad to say. You're a good roleplayer ( As far as I saw. I don't know what you did before I came but till now I don't have anything bad to say eihter ICly or OOCly.)

I want more Diona, and darn gosh i like the sound of this one. And i'm sure Jboy can pull it off, i rememeber talking to him as Alisa Keener a little and he held himself quite exceptionally, one of those conversations that sticked with me, nothing special. I also enjoyed his character Rozhad, who is a good replacment for Runtime. I don't really see any problems with the character or the player

This backstory is wonderfully colourful, and a very creative take on the Diona concept. Although I'm distressed that sherlock season 4 still isn't out by 2457, I mean, bloody hell, Benadryl Cucumbertwat must be some sorta immortal sun god. Also, more Diona detectives is a good thing, since I don't think we have any currently? Maybe we can have tree-sec.

On point, Jboy is a good roleplayer, and they've shown they can and do improve their roleplay over time.

If East Wind didn't feel your fancy, I have another one in mind, that Ill post here as well. It'll be edited into this post.


Character Name: Cold Whispers of a Ghost Within.

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

An experiment held by the Skrell. A group of five nymphs were put in containment, along with a nymph that didn't survive planting and harvesting. Through out the test, someone on a speaker spoke as the dead nymph, trying to convince the rest of the group it was alive, and wanted to be part of the gestalt. It required constant, 24/7 watching and commenting, and the nymphs never saw who was talking, everything was seen through cameras. There was no way nymphs could have known they were being watched, and there was only a slight chance, the scientists thought, they could have known the nymph they were pretending to be was dead.

A few weeks into the experiment, while the pretenders were switching, they formed together, even taking the dead nymph with them. They let the nymph wonder the facility after that, originally as a maintenance worker, giving him clothes that had a mic built in, so they could continue to talk as the dead nymph that they absorbed. However on several occasions, the Diona had wondered into the various labs of the facility and started doing research of it's own, or helping the Skrell with their own experiments. All the while, the Diona refused to tell the staff it's name, even when the idea was implanted through the mic in his clothes. He only told them his name when he tried to leave the facility. He was stopped by the facilities security, outside the gate. The person in charge of his experiments was called to talk to it, before he even let the skrell get a word in, he told him it's name. It was obvious than that it knew the entire time the nymph was dead, and it knew what they were doing. So he let the Diona go.

What do you like about this character? I don't think Id ever heard someone with something even remotely like this, for a Diona at least.
