OneOneThreeEight - IPC Application

Recommended Posts

Guest

BYOND Key: OneOneThreeEight

Character Names: Vira De Santos, Hardin Stryker, A.S.I.M.O.V., J.A.U.N.T., throwaway characters.

How long have you been playing on Aurora: close to 2-3 months now.

Species you are applying to play: Integrated Positronic Chassis

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



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 grown quite bored of humans. I want to mix it up a bit and attempt to duplicate the human-hating yet subservient robot that slowly develops more meaningful relations with certain worthy humans onboard the NSS Aurora.


Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: IPCs are cold, calculating, and otherwise literal beings. They don't show extreme emotion. They often more than not possess a sheer disdain for non-positronic organisms, believing them to be flawed individuals with no discernible or important traits besides being a tool for the greater good. Ironically, as they were made by the very organics they believe to be hella fake, they are subservient drones themselves, unable to free themselves from their silicon prisons.


Why does this species in particular hold your interest: They're extremely adaptable beings. They learn on the fly and make tough decisions within seconds. They calculate risk like most people consider what to have for dinner. Despite being a walking encyclopedia, they are at a loss for social interaction at its greatest extremes.



Character Name: KCH-7438 [Nickname: CACHE]

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

"I don't understand. You're telling me this is an assassin droid? And the positronic algorithmic matrix survived an ion blast?"

"Yes, Doctor. So far we've attempted data and log extraction, but it's constantly resisting any attempts we make at crackings its firewall. The information this droid possesses is likely to be very valuable, and very dangerous."

"And yet, here the chassis lies before us, having killed nine of our best men without missing a beat."

"It's complicated, Doctor. It must be one of those Hunter Killer designs from the far reaches."

"A corsair design?"

"Yessir."

"I see. There's only one way to go about this. Insert the matrix into an integrated positronic chassis."

"Sir?"

"Just do it."

"Alright..."


//REBOOTING...//

/VOCABULATOR TEST.../

"Query: How may I serve, Master?"

/CHECK./

 

What do you like about this character? Who doesn't like the quirkiness of a former/potentially current killer robot that hates humanity to death? Hell, Futurama did it, BioWare did it with HK-47. Why not for 2d spessman simulator vidya gaim? But, really. This character is to be a positronic that despises humanity to its absolute extreme, yet suffers from the cruel irony that it can no longer act upon its hatred of organics. This will lead to painstakingly humourous and dark confrontations. Despite its attempt to subvert its own mandative to serve organics, it will grow and develop relations with many other characters along the way.


How would you rate your role-playing ability? 8/10 i'm okay.

IPCs have more general freedom over borgs. They aren't restrained/enslaved by laws.

True. But in the case of a digital personality that used to be an assasin, slaving it to laws to protect the crew would probably be the wise decision on NTs part, unless you can reason why it has an unslaved body?

IPCs are programmed to serve their masters. Their masters being NanoTrasen, specifically.

Quality roleplayer, easily one of Aurora's best. Seen them do synthetics a couple times, think they've got the mindset for it down.


EDIT: Forgot to add my official +1.

come on, its Delta. 'nuff said


+1


they're an expertly robust player, they do a decent job in the Captain's seat (a seat few would want, or could handle) and they work pretty well with me in my lab. I enjoy talking to them and I want to see more machine people aboard the ship.

Meh.

Delta's proven themselves smart enough not to blow up the station given the chance.

There is room for improvement, but I trust Delta to make an intereting IPC character.
