Filthyfrankster Head of staff application

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Filthyfrankster

Character names: Zubari Akenzua

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: 2-3 months.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I wish to experience the stress and role of being a leader for a department, no matter what actual department it is. Being in command over others and dealing with them coming up to you for questions and support and handling taboo situations and other strange occurrences you would expect on SS13.

Why did you come to Aurora?: I needed to migrate from my past servers and was recommended Aurora by a fellow unathi player who then got me to write up a character app.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?: Yep.

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:

Roleplaying is simply placing yourself in the shoes of someone that you aren't in the real world. Personality difference, world change, gender, race and all the other goods, avoiding to simply self insert yourself. You can see how things are from a different point of view almost of a character that is not you. Even managing to affect your attitude with feelings from said roleplay environment. You ARE a different person, and you will have fun playing that 7'0 unathi in a 2d spaceman game.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?:

One purpose of the head of staff is bringing leadership to different departments onboard the station, adding in some spice when it comes to dealing with situations regarding the command staff and their assigned department that they were trained and took up the job to handle. Be it a research director observing in case of any foul play among the lot and signing paperwork for his/her workers, or a captain making sure corporate regulations and the main goals of their job are held up.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:

Head of staff players are the non-deviant and serious and professional characters you will meet and roleplay with. You are to set an example for other players that the server is a high-roleplay environment, and that screwing off will land you in hot water. To uphold them, it would be best to avoid committing crime, maintain the sanity of your department and show other players the fun of their job, and that seeing a head of personal running off gunning people down would yield to the same, or even more punishment if anyone else did the same.


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

Character name: Zubari Akenzua

Character age: 38

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs):

Simply stated from his biography on his alien application, Zubari is hatchling to a rather abundant family in Teht. He had a bit of a different perspective of the way of life the unathi there were brought up with. The old fashion pride and honor gig and willing to shed blood to preserve it. He was seeking a way out from that, along with dealing with the aggressive brothers of his.They predicted how their lives were going to go, hunting, fighting, preserving the way of life. Upon encountering his first group of human traders who came to Teht every so often to trade supplies and weaponry, even managing to get a few trinkets and currency. He had a small taste of how the easy life was. Managing to learn how to play simply card games as a teenager, a skill he had good use for in the future.

Few years later, obtaining fine clothing and enough credits, His plan was coming together to finally leave this planet after hearing about the constructed shuttle port and issues involving his family and brothers, Taking up the nearest transportation across the sea to Skalamar, buying his way onto the nearest shuttle leaving Moghes and to Mars, falling to the possible lies of wealth and opportunity to live a damn good life. Which some spoke of to be a lie, and others the truth. He didn't pay one mind to it all. Developing a friendship with his first employer on the long shuttle ride and scoring his first job on the human eccentric planet. Getting into the security job field after being inspired from his first job working as a bouncer in an gentlemen club, working as a nightguard to a shipping and trading guard for Gilthari exports. More than happily giving into the lifestyle most humans presented, be it hobbies, the stress of work, gambling, partying it was 1999, discovering relationships, getting himself tattooed some years in. Leaving the life that was on Moghes behinds so many years ago. After years of work, landing himself a job after properly earning an education onboard the NSS Aurora from contacts and friends.

What do you like about this character?:

Zubari is what you would call an assimilated unathi. Learning that the way of life that almost all of his species on Moghes seemed to follow and die for was a tad uncivilized and excellent way to end up in an early grave, wanting a new way of life, he looked to that of what some kind human traders seemed to follow. Obtaining wealth, Attempting to keep themselves cool during stressful situations and being one damn good smooth criminal. He wanted to reach into a life just like that.

One biography later, He thrown away all of his honor and snobby pride that the other males he encountered during his young life on Moghes had embedded in their mind. Getting himself a job on Olympia, his own apartment, working with humans and learning the ways of the trade, which involved communicating to bring a situation towards his way for the betterment and bargaining. Being completely astonished with the life most humans in the heavily populated city of Mars had. He wanted in on this glory.

What do you dislike about this character?:

He relies on others, being the security officers to handle with the dirty work and preserve the law while he handles the paperwork and dealing with any head of staff or concerned/angry crew that bring up their complaints as his cerberii do their jobs. Wanting to live the life of a desk jockey and paperslinger.

What do you think makes this character fit to be a head of staff?:

Most of my experiences playing as an interim head of security or a senior security officer from time to time, Figuring out Zubari's budding opportunity as an official head of security with the right training and schooling. Excellent leadership material if given the proper tools and ranking.


Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?:

I'm confident in my abilities when it comes to writing and roleplaying, though like anyone else, We're human, we make mistakes. Which is what I do from time to time. Hopefully being accepted into the head of staff role will assist in improving it. But for now, a 7/10.

Extra notes: None really.

+1 Endorsement on my end. Frank's a splendid influence to be around, and I've had a ton of fun alongside them battling every threat to the station as internal security.

I can definitely say that they have a level enough head to be able to command a security force.

On one hand, Zubari is a rational and fun lizard to have in the security department. On the other hand, Zubari has already shown his talent for the HoS role when picked as an interim head of security. Both of these are points in his favour.

Zubari is fun to rp with, also, it is a really interesting character and an unathi with a background that explains his detachment from the unathi culture at all. Anyway, we played sec together a lot, fighting nuke ops, traitor, vox and all the lot. I support this application.

I support this application, not only does Zubari/Frank always know how to in the correct situations and how to handle them, but his RP is good we need good HoS's and with Frank's record of being on just about every day for a good period of time, we'd be able to most likely fill that slot well instead of having a security without a head, I don't see an HoS on all that often for the most part. +1

Zubari is a breath of fresh air, as far as Unathi are concerned. He's not overly aggressive, unlike the stereotypical Unathi. He seems to think things through to a degree that would behoove someone in a position of power.

Many Unathi are simply aggressive with little to no character behind them. Zubari is not one of those Unathi by any means.

With this character's personality in mind, I am confident that Filthyfrankster can handle a position as a head of staff. I wish him the best of luck and look forward to seeing how he orders the more belligerent and undisciplined members of security. I also look forward to seeing the smooth-workings and well formulated bits of teamwork that will come from Zubari leading the level headed members of security.
