Crozarius' Unathi Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Crozarius

Character Names: None yet.

Species you are applying to play: Unathi

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): Sandy/Tan. Somewhere in that range.

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 want to play Unathi because I have gotten used to playing them on my prior server, Unbound Travels. I took a look at the Wiki for Aurora and much of the basic characteristics such as mannerisms, diet and body are essentially the same and the culture only looks to be slightly tweaked. The biggest difference I can see is the History. I like the Unathi because of their aesthetic and the fact that they’re physically powerful and intimidating whilst also being flawed.

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

Well, it’s a lot of things, really. First and foremost would probably be speech, given the different oral anatomy like tongue and jaw structure (Also possibly a lack of li ps?) would cause a hissing sound when speaking Tau-Ceti Common. I asked about this on OOC chat because I could not find a definitive answer on the wiki and Alberyk told me that this does happen. Next, in general terms, would be the way that Unathi interact with other people. Unathi are generally somewhat formal in their dealings, especially with members of their own race. Superiors have to be addressed in the proper manner and peers or lowers must still be addressed by their family name rather than their given name, unless express permission is given. Again, I could not figure out how this is handled in terms of Unathi speaking to other races, such as Human, but I imagine that the habit would carry over and an Unathi would offer the same courtesy. Next comes the expression of emotion which differs significantly from Humans due to physical differences. Specifically the tail, the scales and the tongue are the main ways that Unathi express themselves.



Character Name: Tlazo Svydia

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

Tlazo was among the first generation of children hatched on Ouerea. Her childhood years were generally unremarkable other than the fact that her early years were spent in the fledgling years of the colony. During her education, she received a mixture of the traditional Moghes cultural education and the tempered views of the Colonial Government funded and sponsored schools. She grew up with a healthy respect for her own people’s culture and customs, but her education schooled her thoroughly in the acceptance of different races and cultures. Tlazo was physically unremarkable among her peers (Which, in the context of Unathi, meant that she grew to be somewhat thicker and taller than the average Human), though she exceled in academic work. She failed to receive Dux of the grade when she graduated secondary education, but regardless went on to apply for a Colonial Government run University to pursue a 4 year Medical Degree at the age of 18. Now, Tlazo’s immediate family and clan was never particularly rich and quite honestly, the burden of University fees were something that they could not bear. However, Tlazo was offered a NanoTrasen incentive program that offered to pay every cent of her University fees provided she sign a contract obligating her to work for them. Naturally, Tlazo accepted.

Tlazo’s academic aptitude served her well through the four years of her University degree and she completed it without a hitch. By the time her degree was nearing completion, she was well aware of the current diplomatic climate on Ouerea. It was all well and good that the world was coming under the control of the Unathi, she feared what might happen when the conflicting cultures of the Mogheans and the moderately liberal Ouerrians collided. When the time came for Tlazo to leave Ouerea and take on her obligation to NanoTrasen, she was all too eager to leave.

What do you like about this character? What I like about Tlazo and the previous incarnation that I played back on Unbound Travels was the novelty of having an Unathi character who abided by the traditional cultural norms of the Unathi whilst remaining an intelligent character. On Unbound Travels, there were many Unathi who were somewhat… Meatheaded. It also allows me to get into Medbay however I like, considering that I’ll be playing as a Medical Intern. I figure that after a while of playing the station and once I get some experience of how the Medical System works around there, I can upgrade her character to an EMT or some such.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? How would I rate my own ability? Well, I think that I’m pretty good. “Fuck I’m Good, Just Ask Me”, aside, I try and be reasonable with all the IC decisions I make. In roleplay, one of my favourite things to do is try and accurately react to pain as much as possible. On Unbound Travels, I found that often I was the only one who roleplayed out dropping to the ground and clutching their face when my character took a laser carbine shot directly to her unprotected face. I feel like that kind of stuff as well as things like fear open up a lot of opportunity for RP. Another one of my hobbies is to write elaborate *setpose for my character if I get killed to set the scene if/when someone finds the body. Stuff like obvious injuries, facial expression, position of the body and other such things, but nothing metagame-y. I feel like it adds a lot more gravity to the situation.


Notes: I could not find a guide for proper naming conventions for Unathi, so I decided to keep my old name from a previous server. If that name is inappropriate for Unathi on this server, I'll change it.

I like this guy. The character seems to check out (from a non-unathi-lore-expert) and seems enjoyable, and TBH the fact that they made this good of a whitelist before even playing on the server shows that they will, indeed, be invested in the game.

+1, looking forward to seeing you aboard the station.

I'm typically an "invested" Unathi player and I did exactly what this player did-- I made an application for Unathi before I created my first Human character. I know just how much of a pain it is to go through this, so I'm gonna give you a helping hand so I can hopefully interact with you IC'ly all the sooner!

I'm tentative about giving a whitelist to a player that hasn't logged any playtime. But You seem invested and your character is well thought out, so I am willing to trust you with the privilege. The feedback provided has also been positive, so I see little reason to reject you.

You have the approval of the Hiss Emperor of Lizardkind.
