Vaurca Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key:Boltersam

Character Names:Seed That Breaks The Earth

Species you are applying to play:Vaurca

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

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?:Yep!

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 Vaurca specifically because even while they're not integrated yet, they're well-rounded with their advantages and disadvantages, they're really good at combat, for example, but if someone burns them they'll be more damaged than a human, and also because they're so unique, they have a hivemind, much like Xenomorphs, have inter-hive strife, every hive has a different mindset to the other, and can either integrate themselves well into inter-species society, or stick out like a sore thumb!

My idea for what I would like to play a Vaurca as, is being mentally disabled from the shock of being ripped from my VR, making it so that I can only say simple words in Common, and I have no sense of politeness, I'm sure I could shock a chef if I climbed into his kitchen and ate his food, or if I attacked a monkey! I'd like character progression for my Vaurca to be used too, so that if someone took time out to roleplay teaching my Vaurca language, or manners and such, I would show those skills off in the future.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Well, the fact that the hives as a majority can be entirely different from eachother, and a Vaurca could range from an intelligent scientist who occasionally eats test-monkeys ("Don't judge me!") to a primitive brute (such as I would aspire to play) who just plain off devours all of Genetic's monkeys, and runs away when Security begin pulling out stun batons.


Character Name:Zaka'Akaix'Marith'Kaivu

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs Marith had the standard childhood of a Vaurca, hatching from an egg, being a Lesser and Greater Larva, and growing into a Bound BA, basking in the VR paradise while his body toiled and fought for the Kaivu Hive. but one faithful day, he was ripped from his VR and become Unbound, the mental shock limiting his learning rate and leaving him with a simple mind. The Hive sent him to a station called Senti Prime, named after the Gas giant it orbited -Senti-.

In the station Marith was reeling from the brightness of the lights, and retreated into the maintenance shafts, the darkness welcoming him. A search party was sent out, and when Marith was found he was hissing and quivering, shielding his eyes from the flashlights, when a crewmember tried to approach him, holding a flashlight, Marith lashed out and sliced his hand, making him drop the flashlight, which Marith then stomped on, and a Security team was brought in, along with a civilian A type Unbound Vaurca, who persuaded Marith not to lash out at the Security team, and wrapped a blindfold around Marith's eyes. when Marith was led out of the maintenance shafts, it was in shackles, and the crewmembers kept well away from him and the Security team who were escorting him, they were afraid of him.

And then, he was re-located to a station called Aurora, which had been successful in integrating non-human species into the work environment, and there, the next story began.

What do you like about this character? I like the adaptability I had, and the fact that instead of people expecting too much of me, they already know my character as primitive, and that I can act like an animal. Albeit one that has a limited vocabulary, but can understand people. Tajarans offer this to a small extent, but they're intelligent, whereas a Vaurca allows me to have a reason for being primitive and primal.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? 6/10

Notes: IMPORTANT: just getting this out of the way, I know Varcae are not implemented, moving on.

If I do get accepted when Varcae are implemented, I'm going to roleplay as a primitive brute who will eat monkeys and steal food and has no sense of politeness or manners, and can only speak some words in Common.

This is important because I don't want to have to explain why I'm mauling a monkey or trespassing in the kitchen or elsewhere to an admin mid-round, where I could be making a daring escape, Security in close pursuit, instead of being swarmed, beaten, and cuffed while making a long explanation to a concerned/confused/angry admin.
