spacevoidagent's Vaurca application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: spacevoidagent

Character Names: Brayden Striker, Edward Greenwood, David Wolfe, STRYKER (AI), The Storm of Life, The Force that Pulls Stars (Both Diona)

Species you are applying to play: Vaurca!

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): I suppose a olive green color, or a dark tan-brown color.

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yes, it is very interesting.

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: Firstly I wish to play this race as it is new! It looks incredibly interesting and has awesome buffs/disadvantages. I think the idea of playing a non-Alium hive creature could allow for interesting interaction with both other Vaurca and the other species. A Bound Vaurca looks up to the Unbound, as almost Gods. I suppose this is because they envy their freedoms or similar. I think the different classes (Type A, B, etc..) is VERY interesting and closely resembles that of ants. I'd like to be one of the first to play this species.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Almost everything about this species is different from humans. The only similarity they have is speaking the same language. The Vaurca are able to traverse in space, and are immune to radiation and cold. They have strong brute damage and even a special bite. They can see in the dark, better then Tajara, in fact. Though, this comes at a price, extremely vulnerable to fire, slow, EMP's can injure them, and flashes will eventually blind them. And if you play a drone character, you are basically a slave for anyone. The Drone's have no self-judgement and just take orders from others. Vaurca often have no knowledge other then in their department. They can't be heads, and dislike light. I think this is very cool, and I could turn off lights and etc.


Character Name:Za'Akaix'Zikassk Zo'ra

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

Za'Akaix'Zikassk Zo'ra, (I will just type Za for the rest of the Story), a Type BA Vaurca, still young and strong. He was a warrior for the Hive, guarding the Queen and at times the Nursing chambers, securing the safety of the future. He is strong and tall, for human standards, at 8 feet tall. His exoskeleton is normal of a Type BA, their exoskeleton reveals two inches thicker, and supported with carbon nano-tubes that provide a stronger-than steel natural armor, but allows type BA to move around freely and at will. His eyes are glassy and have protection on them. He hatched and grew in 2448, and was unbounded from the hive at around March, 2453. He is a good warrior, fearless, feels no pain, and smart.

As Za grew older and was unbound from the Hive he learned more about Humanity and the other species he shares space with. He found himself drawn to the police roles. He much prefers working with the machines and other species as they are generally not racist or rude to him, and don't call him hurtful things like 'Ant' or 'Termite'. Za contained himself well while studying abroad in Biesel, and graduated quickly with a degree in Law Enforcement. He worked for a few months as a Federal Biesel Officer, and gained valuable experience in interacting with humans. Although he was doing well on New Mendell, Biesel, he was hivesick, and missed space and the vastness it entailed. He searched for NanoTrasen, the ones who transported him to Biesel, offering a new chance. He found Ambassador Va'zuilts Zo'ra, a Type CB 'Prince' ambassador for the Zo'ra Hive, currently living in an embassy in Mendell City, Biesel. He spoke to him about returning to the hive, but was not allowed. Va'zuilts Zo'ra recommended working on a space station if he really wanted to return to space. Za accepted this offer and applied. Za hopes that Va'zuilts Zo'ra will keep in contact, and perhaps he can prove himself worthy of becoming a member of the Hive once again.

What do you like about this character? I like that I used the Type BA Vaurca to create a realistic character that uses his natural born skills in his life on Biesel. He becomes interested in something similar to what he did at the Hive, and pursed it. Grabbing a four year degree in Law Enforcement. After becoming hivesick, he attempted to return, but the only chance off of Biesel was on the NSS Aurora. If this is accepted, he will arrive on the NSS Aurora eager to work as a Security Officer.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? A good 8 or 9. I am very proud of my Diona characters.

Notes: I'm not sure if the Vaurca are ready to be used, but im hoping they are since the Vaurca are on the wiki! The lore is incredible and I read the whole thing. Very cool, and much more detailed then any other species. Bravo to the Lore team. :geek:
