Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: VickChoatic

Character Names: Victoria Beach, Sosuke Williamson

Species you are applying to play: Skrell

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

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 think that it would be really fun to do! I also think we need more of them. I have noticed that it has slowly become less played as we've had a large influx of Tarajan characters lately. I thought it may be interesting since they seem like a rather fun and intelligent race. I think that Skrell are usually rather bubbly and that I will be able to play one well.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human:

I feel like roleplaying the accent may be slightly challenging compared to humans and that the Skrell react to certain situations differently then a person would. They express themselves differently and show their emotions differently towards other species.

Character Name: Tup Quintral

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

Tup grew up in a small swamp of Jargon IV in his Weurusian tribe, a highly social tribe that flourished within the planet. The community never grew in size very much and was rather peaceful. Tup found himself bored, trapped within the small world of his swamp and wanted to experience more on his planet and farther. Due to his curiosity Tup was an outcast in the tribe whether it was said or not. His curiosity was not extinguished by the other tribes people though and he decided to travel away from his home unlike most.

He traveled a far way from home, getting many odd looks seeing a Weurusian away from the swamps. He learned about the other cultures of his world and traveled throughout it, seeing many new things that he wasn't aware of. He found himself rather interested by the technology of the world, fascinated by the different species and cultures, and amazed by the diversity. Telling his story of exploration as he ventured on.

What do you like about this character?

I like how Tup is bubbly and has a taste for adventure, his demeanor is far from quiet and shy and he just wants to learn about things different from where he grew up.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

I would say an 8.5/10, I think I have really improved since I started playing on the aurora regularly, especially with playing as a head of staff.

Notes: I hope you like reading my backstory even if I don't get the white listing.

As much as I OOC wise don't like Skrell, which I can't explain that to even myself, I support Vicky's application. As many times as I've roleplayed with her, I never get left in the dark. Never gets dull around her either. She's always finding ways to make things interesting, and who knows, maybe she can get me to like Skrell!

On the orders of Elite-General Jackboog, I hereby accept your initiation into the skrellian race through rite of safe whitelist training.

Your app is accepted, boi. Just remember the responsibility that comes with being a representative of a race that doesn't have a lot of players. You literally make up, like, 7% of our entire (still playing) skrell character base just for having one squiggly.

The pressure is on. Now get out there and make me proud. <3
