Balcaam's Head Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Balcaam

Character names: James Faraday, Bay, and Sways in the wind.

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: About a month, maybe a month in a half.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I would like to prove myself as a competent leader and the head of my designated department.

Why did you come to Aurora?: My friend, Silvertalismen, wanted me to play with her on this.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?: 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 is playing your character, simple as that. If you want a more in depth answer, Roleplay is the what you do and how you do it. A diona should say things like; We apologize, we did not mean for that to happen. (they should be kind and celebrate life in all forms.) That's just an example, but you get the idea. I think roleplay is helping Interns, following the SoP, and doing things proper ((including IC in OOC and the opposite, which I am sometimes guilty of(bluespace cat knows this.) ))

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?:Heads of staff are the (for lack of a better word.) 'admins' of their department. If someone is picking on another player, race, religion. The head should stamp that out quickly and cleanly. The purpose of a head is to direct his or her department in good behavior, knowledge and be the keystone, the pillar, of that department.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: Well, I think Whitelisted players tend to be a bit more knowledgeable than others. I tend to lend a helping hand to anyone in need, especially new people to the server. If they are new to engineering or whatever I'll show them the ropes, give them the do's and do not's, and friendly advice.

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

Character name: James Faraday

Character age: Thirty

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs): James came from a family near Topeka, Kansas. His father was a firefighter and his mother was a surgeon. One day, his parents brought home a friend of his, the daughter of his parents friends, a girl named Aida. She was crying and was missing her legs. Her parents had died in a tragic car crash. He didn't mind, he always wanted a sister. He was very protective of Aida, because she was constantly picked on all throughout grade school all the way to high school.

When James graduated, he wasn't able to take care as well as before. He went to Washborn university to study engineering, so he could work in space, he always wanted to work in space. After graduating at the second in his class, he kissed his family goodbye and shipped off with Nanotrasen to work on one of their older space stations, the NSS Exodus. He worked on the Exodus for a year and a half until its decommissioning. He was then transferred to a research ship called the NSS Intrepid. They traveled deep space studying the effects of plasma. 5 years later, they come down to an asteroid because of a distress beacon. When the crew, being most of science and security, break atmo on the station they are set upon by purple creatures with tough exoskeleton and a hostility for everything. After they boarded the station, most of the crew was lost except for 5 escape shuttles, in one of which was James. When James got back to earth, he was immediately greeted by Aida, who was worried sick, but more than happy to see him. After he was debriefed, he told his family he would be going out again, on a new station they were building in Tau Ceti called the NSS Aurora. Aida understood, and she would have her reasons. When James arrived on the station he was greeted when he passed hydroponics by Aida, his sister. They argued, but James figured it would best if she remain close to him.

What do you like about this character?: His caring for his adopted sister Aida.

What do you dislike about this character?: If I had to pick one thing, which is hard, I would pick his pride. He thinks he knows everything to know about engineering, though it's not far from the truth.

What do you think makes this character fit to be a head of staff?: I know that when we apply we apply for ALL heads of staff, but James knows the field of engineering like the back of his hand. I've done a few jobs with him on other servers, like security, roboticist and all of that.


Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: 7/10. ((7.5 if I'm playing dionaea.))

Extra notes:If I fu-messed something up, please reply and I'll fix it immediately! Thank you for your consideration! :D

Please take a look at this:


Your character needs to be 30 years at least.

Generally, don't have anything bad to say because I rarely played with you. I like you diona character though.

I will hold my endorsement until I interacted with you more.


Okay I'll get together with silvertalismen and work something out.

And thank you for the compliment.
