IHasYourNoms' Dionaea Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: IHasYourNoms

Character Names:




Sarah Bluegate

Emma Blackwell

Species you are applying to play: Dionaea/Diona

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

Have you read our lore section's page on this species: Yes I have.

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 would like to play as a Dionaea because of the way they think. Unlike many other species, Dionaea are made up of different "personalities" which makes them an extremely interesting type of character to design and play as. I also feel that not many people play as a Dionaea and it would be interesting to be one of a few, or the only of that species on the station at one time.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Role-playing a Dionaea is very different to a human due to not only their in-built mechanics (for example: needing to stay out of the dark) but also that (as I mentioned previously) the way they are made up of multiple different intelligences which almost come together to make the person you play as. I find this an interesting prospect and will lead to interesting scenarios, however, it may also be smaller things such as referring to itself as "we" rather than "I".


Character Name: Leaves That Cleanse The Flesh

Please provide a short backstory of your character (approximately 2 paragraphs):This character is still a fairly young Diona, by their standards. He is fairly new to large groups of humans, as he mainly spent his time in secluded human colonies before this. Over his time he learnt different medical trades, mainly focusing on said trades without much of an interest in anything else. However, he does occasionally take an interest in science. Other than that, however, he does not show interest beyond medical expertise.

The character has a few different personalities which come through, most of the time it is one personality formed of the different intelligences contained within him but it is not odd for him to change moods and/or figures of speech randomly due to these different intelligences. In some cases he is quiet, polite and thoughtful and then in others he is cold-hearted and ruthless. However, the most common personality to show is a calm and respectful character, with occasional witty comments to show through. The former two personalities are not the only two changes possible but are the most common if he is not his normal self.

What do you like about this character?I like the idea that my character changes personalities occasionally, but even when he has not he provides witty humor without being so "funny" that he becomes distracted from his work and puts off other members of the crew. He can be funny and a good friend when needed, but also particularly calm and focused when that demeanor is needed.

How would you rate your roleplaying ability? I would rate my roleplaying fairly well, I almost never break character and am fairly good at using appropriate language for my character. However, spelling mistakes are a common problem which can occasionally break immersion for me and others.

Notes: EDIT: Simply would like to inform you that I'll be offline for the next 2-4 days because of multiple things, the main being a short trip away from home. (As of 21/08/15)

I did not really interact with anyone besides Elisa. But from that few times I did, as Vex, those were hours of talking in person, with Elisa having a very good backstory, and such. I also like how Leaves is dependent on others, with its changing personality.

Well formatted app, fairly good backstory, +1
