Fire and Glory's IPC application.

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key:Fire and Glory.

Character Names:C.A.C pAI, C.A.C borg (subtle differences in personality, them being separate personality shards), Casimir Laurenzi, Jorge Gerthun, MELCHIOR. EDIT:IPC/borg SAHU and pAI Carl are new additions to the ranks.

Species you are applying to play:IPC.

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

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've always found synthetics easier to Roleplay then Humans, probably since I don't have to write a backstory to explain why they have their personality if I want them to have any effect with people, also, Humans have their rules and morals, Unathi have their traditions, Tajara have their accent and clans, Skrell have their accents as well, while IPCs are pretty much blanks to be written on, so IPCs seems to be the best first step.

I've always preferred basing a character on what has happened to them in-game rather then some big pre-written backstory, and IPCs seem far better suited to that then the other races, especially a newly made IPC, I also have already made an IPC who is acquainted with several people, so that's a bonus as well.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human:Well, for starters, they don't really have emotions, and while a lot of IPCs can simulate emotions and some do it very well, others aren't particularly good at it and in the case of some IPCs, they can't simulate some emotions at all*.

There is also some social stigma against IPCs among not particularly well educated people, under the guise that they are 'dumb robots' without any feelings and should be treated however one would wish, obviously this is not the case but it is still somewhat prevalent among various organics.

Another notable feature is that a fair few of them are under ownership of a corporation, such as NanoTrasen, and those under ownership work until they can pay the price it took to construct them, while having the threat of potential removal from the chassis hanging above them if they aren't particularly well behaved.


Character Name:CAC

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs:CAC was constructed on the 12th of July 2457 by IPC Roboticist Bay, Bay was temporarily suspended from robotics and fined for construction of an IPC without authorization, CAC was informed of the precise nature of his corporate ownership by Internal Affairs Agent Fumiki Kamachi, Bay has declared that he would provide CAC with financial support until he can buy self ownership.

Internal Affairs Agent Fumiki Kamachi is in charge of overseeing CAC's conduct and integration into NanoTrasen, CAC has changed his name from C.A.C given that the initials (Crew Assistant Companion) were outdated, CAC has not yet been given a psyche evaluation and while apparently stable, it is highly recommended that he get an appointment next time a psychiatrist is on board, he has no specific skill set yet but he is looking into acquiring one, CAC has absorbed both his personality shards prior to installation into an IPC, and thus his other-selves do not exist any more.

What do you like about this character? CAC is the first character I have fully and completely made, namely, backstory and personality whole, and thus I like him a lot for being far better then my other characters, he also has two people directly involved in his life and is acquainted with several people, enemies and friends, so he actually knows people as well, he also essentially has the Sword of Damocles hanging over his head and I feel it'd create some interesting situations.

I have played CAC for a while and this is pretty much the next step in his character and I am eager to see where it'll take me.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? To be brutally honest? 6 or 6.5 probably, but with a proper character, I feel I can start doing better.


*I'm rambling for no particular reason, sorry about that, I'm not a particularly good writer.

Balcaam and Jakers457 (Bay and Fumiki respectively) have of course, given their consent to be put in the backstory.

In the words of Shia Lebeouf:

Do it.

Just do it.

Make this man's dreams come true and give them that IPC whitelist.

They've been my pAI time and time again as the ever adventurous and comedic CAC. They've never failed to present themselves as comic relief and a very engaging and friendly personality.

The backstory looks good and I happen to like it.

I'm endorsing this for the above reasons.
