Moltenkore's Tajaran Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Moltenkore

Character Names: (Most well known) Kix, Venture, Centros

Species you are applying to play: Tajaran

What colour do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): Brown /Dark Brown

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

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've always found Tajara interesting and since I've been playing Kix with a Tajaran shell my interest in them has grown significantly. They have a very interesting lore and their culture is quite diverse. They seem to be a lot more ruff than most races which will provide an interesting basis to create a new character.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Most Tajara speak referring to themselves in third person and often roll their 'R's. Most Tajara take names from Arabic or Russian as they are a lot easier for them to pronounce. Their different physiology than humans gives them a lot of access to different emotes that humans are incapable of such as their tail, ears and claws. This allows a lot more depth from the race during interaction with others in the game.


Character Name: Ira To'ma

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs Growing up in a tight nit family on the Tajaran homeworld of Adhomai. Ira and her sisters had to work quite hard to get by. When they had finally built up enough money they decided to move into the city for more work prospects and better living. However during one of the final weeks of hard labour out in the fields, Ira had a nasty encounter with a rogue landmine landing her in serious condition and killing one of her sisters. Over the next few months she steadily got worse suffering from broken bones and damaged hearing until one day a friend of her family contacted them about potential medical help they could receive if they agreed to a deal.

The deal was once Ira recovered, she would work with the mining sector that was scouting near the remote villages for new dig sites. She would become an employee and work in exchange for medical care. Reluctantly, her family accepted and with it received the resources that Ira desperately needed. Still partially deaf Ira continued to work for the miners gaining valuable insight and experience in the sector, eventually moving into working on remote asteroids and belts.

What do you like about this character? She's hardworking, strong and reliable. Even being partially deaf she is able to get by just fine with a determined attitude and will to succeed. She still however, has issues when it comes to explosives or other weaponry which will remind her of the horror that happened to her and her sister.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? I'd say 8/10, I'm learning new things all the time and I think a new character will help me expand my ability.

Notes: Ira is able work in mining and most civilian sectors due to her upbringing.

Personally I enjoy playing Kix's sister, Mix, and with her recent job change to IAA It's been interesting, I think it would be interesting to see Molten play a organic character with a job in the cargo/mining sector and I would love to see were they take this character, My only problem is that they don't exactly play organic characters, seeming to limit themselves to IPC's/other synthetics so I wonder how Molten will handle this and how well played this character will be
