Species you are applying to play: Skrell. Specifically a Snow Skrell

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

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: I have. Wiki's pretty sexy now by the way

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:

They seem like the most interesting of the other alien races for me at the moment. Not really that interested in Unathi or Tajaran character right now but a Skrell one seems like they could quite an interesting Roleplay experience in comparison to my Human ones at the moment. Also they seem to have less of presence at the times that I've been playing than the likes of the Tajaran and Unathi, so I'd like to play them for that reason. Also in specifically, I'm liking the thought of family & tradition being a very important part of my particular Race of Skrell's cultural background to help with the roleplay elements. Also, the outlook of Unathi to my particular race of Skrell and my outlook of them sounds VERY interesting.

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

Well obviously there's the physical element of being a different Species. Way they experience different things will be different, they have extra parts or are missing certain ones. It keeps a distinct difference in how you play the character compared to a human as you'll always have to keep in mind of these differences when in comparison to my own body. Secondly, culturally Skrell will have a different outlook. Different upbringing, different language and method of communication between races and how emotionally you interact with others. Also, you're not the majority. You're surrounded by foreign creatures on all fronts, so it's probably daunting even to them that there's so little of what's normal for them.


Character Name: Yaniu Ipeash

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

Yaniu was born on Aliose in a group of 17. Born into the Unathi herding lifestyle she developed an attitude that would follow her through life about the creatures, that they were base creatures without the right to the privileges they'd been given by the other races of Skrell and Humanity, however she would not always directly lobby for a change in their attitudes. However she grew to find a great interest in the use of technology and it's maintenance. The ability to take apart and reassemble tech would fascinate her and she would love that no matter how many times she did it, there was always new challenges to face in every action. It seemed to be her calling and as she grew Yaniu decided that to further her knowledge she would travel to the Skrell Homeworld of Qerrbalak with two of her siblings.

On Qerrbalak she managed to make contact with a Nanotrasen Representative. After discussing her prospective career, she signed a contract. Going to work with the minds of Nanotrasen's best was exactly what she felt was needed. Working on the NCV Tesla she managed to figure out a lot about the medical field's machines, and developed an attachment to the Medical department's machines on a level of fixing them. However the ship eventually became too much. It was a an in and out situation that never sat well with her, she needed somewhere for traditions to be set down with a familiar space around it. So placed a transfer order in, hoping to be moved to somewhere a little more stable

What do you like about this character? I like that she's got a few flaws of her own with the Unathi, and emotionally being isolated away from her family & species. But she comes into her won around machines and fixing them and taking care of them. And I like that kinda feel to it,

How would you rate your role-playing ability? I'm not bad. I've been roleplaying for a while, about 9 years give or take. Played on a bunch of SS13 servers although this is the only real Heavy Roleplay one I've ever cared for. I don't like to rate it, as I'd rather hear other people's opinions on how I play.

Notes: I know I have a lot of characters, but I do play them all for different situations and enjoy mixing it all up. I hope the addition of another race character will help that kinda feel aswell

Bumping and making an important point. Seems a lot of people don't remember me from last year so I don't have a massive load of people in my corner on this. However I don't mind if that allows it to be denied or whatever since I really understand the importance of keeping fuckwits out of whitelisted positions for lore sake.

Also. On anther note I've been really bored in Uni lately so I've been experimenting with talking without teeth. It's been entertaining and I found out 'Th' would be more like a laboured h but I am now looked at weirdly

I'm going to clean this up, as the OP hasn't been active for over a month. :(

If you wish to apply again, feel free to resubmit this application as-is, while taking into account the changes I mentioned in the post above and applying any small modifications which would be necessary. (Don't worry, Aliose still exists!)
