Species you are applying to play: IPC

What color do you plan on making your first alien character N/A

I have read the lore section on IPC's

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 find the IPC "race" rather interesting as it can often have a roleplaying style of an AI or Cyborg, but allows you to be a normal member of the crew. I also find the fact that IPC's can have fake "skin" interesting and this could possibly open up many different roleplaying scenarios. This could be an IPC "neglecting" to tell the crew it is in fact synthetic and then being revealed, or something along those lines. I find this idea or the idea of being almost "looked down upon" by the crew quite intriguing.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human:

Roleplaying this character is rather different to a human as it requires a certain degree of thinking as to what you say. This could be that your character is more akin to an AI than a pAI lacking the nuances of human speech and using more scientific/technical terms when speaking or referring to itself as "this unit" or "it". However, it could also be that the character is very similar to humans in the way it emulates emotions but is submissive to the humans, accepting that it is a robotic "slave" or "worker" and being quiet and/or scared around organic species.


Character Name: Kara

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

Kara is a preset Nanotrasen personality, used for both pAI's and AI's. "She" is often cheerful, and friendly towards humans. Not acting afraid, but also not acting too big headed around them. She was brought into commission a few months ago as a popular personality for human crew. She commonly manipulates colloquialisms when speaking and is more of a "friend" than a servant. She hasn't really had much of a past life due to the fact she is routinely wiped in order to prevent personal attachment to former "masters" or crew members.

It was not until she found an IPC unit as her master that she began to think about what it would be like to be a fully-fledged crew member. She quickly submitted a request to "CentCom" asking for a personality transfer into an IPC unit. Of course, she would not change her name in any way and would simply be her normal self but in an IPC unit as a crew member. She does not deny that not having a memory wipe every shift was a big temptation but that is not the only reason.

What do you like about this character?

I like Kara because I have played her before as a pAI and AI and she is a familiar character to roleplay. She is often sarcastic and/or witty and will frequently make comments on the current situation which are often met with "not the time" or "really?" making her rather entertaining to play. She certainly has got a darker side though, often descending into anger or panic when met with death; attempting to keep the crew calm but commonly failing to do so.[/b}

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

I would rate my roleplaying ability as respectable, I'm not particularly great however I never come out of role unless I accidentally say an LOOC message in IC chat. This happens a lot however, and I will often make spelling mistakes.

Notes: I will be offline for the next two weeks due to a family holiday, and have not been online for a few months so many will probably not have seen my first two characters around though some will know my pAI character. Time of writing this note is 23/07/15
