Japak121's Diona App

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Japak121

Character Names: Arianna Cessa, Jeanette Locklear, Antoinette Locklear, Robert Atweeke, Janice Starsky, Saori Yoshida

Species you are applying to play: Diona

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): N/A

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes! It's what helped me choose which race I wanted to apply for first!

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: Because they are naive and yet wordly. Being the newest race introduced into the galaxy, and a curious one at that, they are like children sitting at the grown-ups table at dinner. I find this fascinating and it fits my general style of roleplay very well. I also like that they trade speed in return for a robust health system and the lack of EVA gear as a necessity when going into space/breached areas.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: They don't have a fully fleshed out lore system (officially) like most of the other races do. This leaves roleplaying a past for them an open book with unique opportunities to flesh out a backstory. General-mechanics wise they are slower, have access to a unique alien language, regenerate health in radiation and in light, and don't need oxygen/hardsuits. Them being living plants is pretty cool as well and about as far away from human biology as it gets, IPC's probably being the next closest.


Character Name: Dawn Among Metal Fields

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

TO: Ford McClane, Duty Officer, NMSS Odin

FROM: Erik Deluth, Duty Officer, NMSS Baldr

SUBJECT: Special Transfer



Just a heads up, we got another transfer headed your way. Slated for the Aurora, job assignment to be determined by you all and based on the needs of the station. I'll include the usual background info and what not, with the rest of the files coming along with them on hard copy.

Dawn Among Metal Fields (Of Violent Song Caught In A Sky Of Green And Blue, is a Diona, in case you hadn't already guessed. Was picked up by one of our exploration ships, the Asimov, out on the fringes. Spent some time aboard there until they had to return. By the time they got back, the Diona had already learned enough about us that the recruiters had a field day among themselves trying to get it to sign on. Turns out, it wasn't very hard. Signed on with a minimum salary contract, only one clause, 'must be assigned to a research station or vessel'. Say's it just wants to learn and help out. Can't argue with that. The usual information we'd send along isn't really as available as we'd like. This Diona claims it was born on some backwater frontier world, which we can't really confirm because information sharing isn't really the best at the moment. It doesn't really know it's age, but from what we've gathered it's got to be at least 60 years old. No idea if that's as old as it sounds. It's got basic skills in maintenance and medicine, plus it's natural affinity for Botany. We had it do the usual career finder thing we got and it's pretty good at all the unusual stuff, but nothing specific. Like, if there was a disaster, this is your guy. But on the day-to-day? Not so sure how helpful he'd be. Just an opinion though.

It should arrive within the month, along with all it's records. Take care.--------------------

DTG: 15-15:45-TAU CETI STANDARD-08-2457

SIGN: Erik Deluth

What do you like about this character? There curiosity and there flexibility. They will frequently pester the crew with questions about pretty much everything, which should be a lot of fun to RP. There flexibility and non-specialist nature will be good on event/damage heavy rounds, where they will be able to help out and do the most good.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? 7. Could always use improvement.


*The main idea of this character will be that they grew up on a desolate world on the frontier as a member of a colony that mainly got by on scrapping old starship hulks. Eventually they caught a ride on an NT ship, spent a bunch of time with them, and signed on with a recruiter when the ship came back into port.

*This will also be my first non-human race after all this time.
