Lord Fowl's Vaurca App

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: lordfowl

Character Names: Etcetera & Etcetera

Species you are applying to play: Vaurca

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

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yepperoni & Cheese

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:

The Vaurca are an intriguing race because they attempt to deliberately be very different from humans, both mechanically and behaviourally. They're also bugs, which is pretty cool. Really, I just want to broaden my horizons. The idea of playing a Bound Vaurca in particular interests me. It subjects my character to a rank even lower than that of cyborg, while also removing the pesky self-awareness factor that plagues cyborgs and IPCs alike. It is my hope that I find the exact type of abject abuse that I have been looking for for so long in the form of the Vaurcae Bound caste.

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

I mean, its probably easier to identify what makes this species similar to a human. There are so many things that separate the two beyond even mechanical differences. Amplify this by five when you're a Bound Vaurca, and you get a real cocktail of alien life. I hope to completely distance myself from the human norm, and I hope that the Vaurca race takes the same path. The IPCs had so much potential, but ultimately they fell too close to reskinned human grounds. I hope the same does not happen for the Vaurcae.


Character Name: Ka'Viax'Zork Zo'ra

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

Work, work, work. That's the life of the Bound Type A. Why would you expect any different in the case of this specimen? Born within the chambers of the Zo'ra hives, incubated, hatched, and raised to be a worker. What else could a worker do but work? Constant digging, lifting, running, dropping, digging, lifting, running, dropping, digging, lifting, running, dropping. On and on as the Unbound idled away in their Virtual Paradise, as the Queens birthed more and more, as wars waged outside of the Hive, Zork dug and dug. Not for glory, not for praise, only a little out of reverence. He dug because that was what he was born to do, and he did nothing but dig. When the Zo'ra began diverting portions of their hives onto the vessel Titan Prime in preparation for its momentous (to the humans at least) journey, Zork was amongst the many thousands blindly chosen. Upon the ship he transferred waste from the waste pods to the incineration chambers, day in and day out. Scooping, lifting, running, dropping, burning.

Zork's constant cycle of work was interrupted one workful November day, when the TFTC perpetuated their assault on the Titan Prime vessel. For no reason but coincidence, Zork was not made incapable of work in the course of this attack, and was evacuated with the rest of the Type A, towards the end of the currently ongoing process due to his Bound status. Placed within a Province located within New Gibson, Zork continued to work again with waste management, tackling mindlessly the massive issue of a million and a half Vaurcae crammed within small concentration camps. As Tau Ceti officials attempted to alleviate this issue, it happened that Zork's work was contracted out to NanoTrasen in an effort to lighten the burden on public zones. Crammed into a re-purposed broom closet in the sprawling NMSS Odin, Zork came to be assigned to the research vessel NSS Aurora, specifically assigned to the 'brainlessly harvest the asteroid for all its valuables' division. So it came to be that Zork returned to his instinctual cycle of dig, lift, run, drop, dig, lift, run, drop. He hardly even notices that this time it occurs in the weightlessness of gravity, except to note that it makes the lifting more efficient. He's not happy that he must work. He's not mad that he must work. He is, and he works.

What do you like about this character?

Work, work, work!

How would you rate your role-playing ability? 6/9
