Icuris's Head of Security Whitelist application

Recommended Posts

BYOND key:Icuris

Character names:Clement Beach

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Over 10 months

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: To step into a higher role of responsibilities to further my character's development

Why did you come to Aurora?: For the purpose of heavy RP and the professional staff advertised

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

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; simply put is a form of acting. Where a person takes on the characteristics of their design. In the case of video game based RP I believe that it is essential for role-playing to always contribute to the entertainment and enjoyment of the game itself. Further, RP is essential for the immersion of the players and when done right can be presented well even in the un-immersive content of BYOND's SS13.

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

Out of character, a head of staff is meant to show both the commitment and responsibility that is required to hold such a position. They represent the standard that they and the servers staff wish all staff members in their department to adhere to.

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

Similar to above I believe that a whitelisted head is meant to uphold the highest standard of behavior attributed to the responsibilities and prestige that they have garnered. To maintain this standard and belief of the reliability of a head I believe it to be fundamental that a head re-enforces their departments fundamental beliefs in both themselves and their staff and always strives to go above and beyond to achieve a stronger staff, station and server.

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

Character name: Clement Beach

Character age: 25, will adjust to meet role standard

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

Clement Beach grew up in the slums of the megatropplis of Earth. At a young age he quickly learned to fend for himself and how to keep himself and people he cared about safe. However due to the nature of poverty he quickly found himself involved in morally dubious actions within the area he lived. As time grew on his behavior grew more erratic as he lost himself into the violence of his life. However despite recorded acts of violence and association with higher leveled criminals; Clement Beach never faced prosecution as he was deemed a small time hood versus the true hardened criminals in his company.

During a recorded incident of arson within Clement Beach's apartment block, his younger sister was killed. Upon further investigation it was later found out that the arson was a gang related incident with a rival group. The traumatic experience had Clement Beach go off world to attempt to escape the life he had made. Realizing the consequences others might face because of him Clement would make every attempt to avoid conflict and attempt to always find non-violent resolution to problems around him. This ideal followed him into his employment on the NSS Aurora where he signed on as an assistant and would steadily work his way up to one of the highly recognized and respected officers aboard the station.

At an unrecorded point He met the women Victoria Tait and between her first year aboard to now the two have been in a healthy relationship which eventually lead to their marriage

What do you like about this character?:

I like that my character is honest and makes the attempt to be empathetic with others. He comes off as one of the most calm officers aboard the station and works diligently to subvert the stereotype of the gungho security team that Aurora has developed. Further then that I see that when the opportunity presents itself he will always take the extra step to avoid unnecessary conflict and handles things in what would be considered a realistic manner.

What do you dislike about this character?:

I dislike that my character is unable to show affection to his wife while in public or work. Even a hug causes some anxiousness as he attempts to remain professional. This stems from the fear that someone might oneday harm his spouse to cause him grief.

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

I believe my character portrays the necessary qualifications in ethical,moral and ability based standards that he would prove to be an excellent Head of Security if given the opportunity. I apologize for such a brief statement but I wish to explain myself in an effective and simple manner.


Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?:

I would rate my role-playing ability at a 7.5 out of 10. Where in 99% of all cases I strongly believe my presence to always be a positive addition to the game, I give myself a lower mark to leave room for error and honest mistakes.

Extra notes:

I appreciate the fact that I have taken what most people consider to be the gruff brooding type of backround and added the reverse spin on it making my character more human as a result.

I've seen, Clement sometimes. Never really anytime that would show he's, suitable for HoS. But, I'm sure that, if he's promoted or something, he'd probably shine, maybe. I'd say that at the very least, he deserves the chance to try for the position.

Seen Clement most of times as a nursing intern/medical. Won't give any commendations really. I think everyone has a chance for any whitelist, but I'd most likely want another character as a head of staff from this player, as I know that Clement Beach usually been in role of a nurse intern/medical somewhat.

Meowy has a very nice title for this post too.

At the discretion of an associate of mine IRL I played as a Nursing Intern to help introduce them to the medical field. However, the character Clement Beach has prominently been involved in security and I have been steadily working the character from cadet, officer and finally warden.

Upon further deliberation and considering how long this thread has been without much reply. I will continue to play as the Warden until I feel that I have acquired both the skills and notoriety expected from a whitelisted player. The forum page may be locked at the in-charge persons discretion.
