BYOND Key: NursieKitty

Species you are applying to play: 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: The new shell customization options broadened the horizons. I love the physical aspect of creating characters and tweaking them so that I give them just the right feeling. A lot of IPCs have this otherworldly personality to them, and they're vastly varied - and not just in terms of appearance.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: They're a lot like humans, but a lot more..Vulnerable. Vulnerability isn't the first thing to come to mind with IPCs, I'm sure. They're susceptible to EMP, require mechanics to repair them,and the moment a synthetic starts acting off,

the organics are incredibly quick to call malfunction, and for it to be dismantled. Not only that, but their very person hood is even under dispute.


Character Name: Anpu

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

A synthetic created to manage the preparation and moving of bodies, affectionately named "Charon," was formally employed in a neo-hellenistic church in Lowell. Paid for by generous grants from church-goers in 2450, it had a vast knowledge of funeral rites and practices. The church had the opportunity to hire it out, slowly but surely earning back the money spent. It was more efficient than they would have hoped.

Two years after, the riots came.

Charon began acting strange. His speeches became more frenzied, and he became more defensive of the dead, which he now considered his charges. Members of the church suspected he was at a breaking point, and after a short scuffle with the pastor, he was ousted from the church, forced to make a life of his own. With the meager earnings he had, he settled into a new life at Nanotrasen, and chose a name more befitting one such as himself. He was now Anpu, a daunting patron of the dead.

What do you like about this character?

I've had a fascination with egyptian mythology going strong since I was tiny. I really like the picture this character paints, as well. A fearsome-looking synthetic believing himself to be a god of the dead. It's morbid, fantastically delusional, and hopefully, will be incredibly fun to play and interact with. And naturally, he would play a chaplain role.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

Other people rate me rather highly, which is super nice and I appreciate it a lot, but I'm still not comfortable rating my own ability. I still have the tendency to let OOC feelings get to my character.


I had this idea a night ago. I loved it so much I scrapped my previous idea for an application and got started on this.

Also, this might be another thing where "nursie writes about something she knows nothing about," because I had to do some research on neo-hellenism. If there any any inconsistencies, let me know so I can scrub that up.

I made an ancient Roman IPC knowing barely anything about ancient Romans, and I barely did any research to make up for it. I think you'll be fine jumping into something you've only scratched the surface of. Anyway, I could think of a hundred reasons why this should be accepted, but that would take a long time, so...

Nursie is well-spoken, a good writer, a great roleplayer, and isn't completely insane. She has been a pillar of our community, even if you're not aware of that, and I believe that she could take an interesting concept with an IPC and run with it, rather than just scream and flail about as most people do (i'm not naming names.)

So she has my vote.
