Diona Whitelist Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key:Boltersam

Character Names:John Cutter (current), Sam Johnson (old)

Species you are applying to play:Diona

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

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: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 want to play this race because I like the idea of a gentle giant, and to that effect Dionae are like walking trees, and they can do things that humans can't do. but, there are limitations. I feel, that in many games, aliens and humans don't have to work together, because they don't have strengths that make up for their ally's limitations, but on this server, Dionae can get into oxygen-deprived environments without the need for internals, however, they cannot be in darkness for too long, to this extent humans can deal with problems in dark areas of the station, and the Dionae can assist in working outside of the station, and as I've observed, whether a subconscious, or conscious decision, Diona players are usually in jobs that require care, such as Medical, and Botany, and also in jobs that may require them to be in low-oxygen environments, such as Engineering. I usually play a hot-headed, former gang-member Assistant, John Cutter, but I want to broaden my roleplaying, a slow, kind giant will do so, and I believe it will be fun to play with. as well as this, the fact that Dionae can revert to their child-form after their grown body dies is incredibly interesting in the biology-wise part of my mind.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human:Dionae are slow, physically, and mentally, but kind. whereas humans can be hot-headed and great scientists, the slow and peaceful state of mind that dionae live in is a sharp contrast to the irrational thinking of the many humans across the universe, and I feel that if need be, Dionae can be fierce in protection of their friends. This deep kind of connection Dionae are capable of forming with others is appealing to me, as while humans will betray you for money, or even for something as honourable as helping Security, a Diona will break all the rules just to ensure that its friends are safe.


Character Name:The Seed That Breaks The Earth

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphsAs a nymph, The Seed That Breaks The Earth lived on a Skrell science ship, learning the inner workings of the ship from Diona Engineers, The Seed That Breaks The Earth moved about the habitat module, spotting small problems before they became a big problem, this helpful nymph was destined to become an Engineer. as it grew, it became more and more involved in maintaining the ship, being given tools of its own and assigned low-priority jobs. one day, the Skrell ship stopped to refuel at Aurora. the still-young Diona wondered at the humans and the almost-living machine servants known as sythethics, for The Seed That Breaks The Earth had never encountered these wonders before. while the chief engineer of the station was speaking with the Skrell captain about the refuelling cost, a Nanostrasen official walked over from his brief discussion with two security officers "What do we have here?" noticing the Skrell Engineering outfit that The Seed wore. "Hey there little fellah, do you like being an engineer?"

When the young Diona replied that he did, the official clapped his hands "Well, how would you like to work here? Aurora's a little short-handed, and we'll pay you the same as everyone else, what do you say?" The Seed considered the man's offer for a moment and turned to the Skrell captain, who had finished his discussion with the chief engineer "Sir, is it okay for me to work here?" Naturally, the Skrell was aggravated that one of his engineers wanted to leave and work at a Nanostrasen station, but when the official said he'd pay exactly one thousand credits for The Seed, his mind was changed. "of Course you can, Seed, be careful out there, and make some friends among the crew, I think you'll like humans." and so was the young Diona's fate sealed, his life now existed to combat the many tragedies that befell the station's machinery, once fully grown, the Diona was nearly as tall and broad as a tree, honed by the hours toiling on the station, he's made friends among the crew, and he's settled in.

What do you like about this character? I like this character because I intend to play him as a gentle giant, that when provoked, or if his friends are provoked, can be extremely fierce in his and their defence, as I usually play as a hot-headed human, I think this will be a breath of fresh air, and a completely new experience, that, and the interesting matter that Dionae can become a nymph once more if their adult body is destroyed, is appealing to me, and with a little practise, I think I can properly roleplay a slow, yet kind, giant.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? 6/10. I'm not going to rate myself higher, because I know I can't compare myself to the roleplayers I know, but I believe that after some practise I can adjust to different roleplaying styles, and become better.

The proccessing tag is applied by admins on applications that have been accepted but are yet to be applied; not by the applier.

On topic, this application is pretty extensive and well done; though I haven't seen you on server? What time are you normally on, so I can meet you?

Oh, I apologise, I'm not well-versed in the forums. I believe I played Aurora a long time ago, as I had a character made.I came back a few days ago. Well, there's no fixed time for when I'm on, but right now I'm just on whenever I can, I'll be on less often when I'm back to school, which will be in 7 days, it depends on which time zone you're in, but I'm in UTC, I'll usually be on in mid-day and in the afternoon, when I go back to school I will only be on in the afternoon, and probably not that often because, though I'm in my last year, I've got the toughest teacher, and I'll probably be dealing with a lot of homework, I'll definitely be on as often as I can, as Aurora is a very enjoyable station to play on and the community is very welcoming.
