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:

Honestly? To try something new. I've already played humans, both head and non-head, and all manners of synthetics - and to be honest, I'm running out of gimmicks. So I thought that the next most relevant species would be the Skrell - and so I read up on it, and I started quite liking the species.

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

First and foremost, the language. They can barely talk Common because of mouth structure, and thus it can lead to some very interesting (read: hilarious) situations of misunderstanding. Second, there is the culture - whereas most humans tend to react to insults, Skrell avoid it to keep face - and that follows a general theme of tolerance. Third, there's the fact that they have to be careful of many things: animal protein, airborne substances, and so on. Fourth, there's the fact that Skrell focus a lot more on the mind than the body - which can be interpreted many ways.


Character Name: Farreipshi Tup'Tesh

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

Born and raised on Aliose, Farreipshi was always considered a rebel - not always because of troublemaking, but because she was too questioning, even for a Skrell. Her parents were Altariser - and so, they tried to impart her with these values and beliefs - which led her, at the ripe age of 14, to be nicknamed 'The Dangerous One' - for a simple reason. She questioned everything. She believed in constant improvement of herself. And, in her case, it wasn't until she was 14 that the history of the Skrell versus the AI was tackled.

Because of the immense backlash of her suggestions regarding her beliefs on AI, she kept mostly to herself, quieting down. It bothered her - how they all just... accepted things. And as such she finished her main education - worked for about a year, buying her own PDA in the process, before declaring the Skrell she lived with a lost cause. With the money saved up, she bought herself a trip to the Sol Union - and attended advanced studies there, specializing in chemistry and electromechanics, eventually obtaining a doctorate in artificial intelligence development (which, given an opportunity, she would definitely flaunt towards her Skrell peers).

Following suit, she spent a few years lost - she had a lot of studies, but didn't yet know where to go. At least until, one day while browsing the Extranet, she learned of NanoTrasen and their efforts on research in all fields - and so, she sent an application. She was accepted a few months later.

What do you like about this character?


"Did I ever tell you what the definition of insanity is? Insanity is doing the exact... same fucking thing... over and over again expecting... shit to change... That. Is. Crazy."

She DEFINITELY is insane, in that sense.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? 7/10 always place for improvement

Notes: I just noticed that the section on "What do you dislike" is gone. ALSO WARBLE WARBLE

I too support this. There's certain people, when I log in, I just go "Oh thank God." Because when shit hits the fan, I know they can be counted on. Killer is one of those people, at least ICly. I don't know him much, OOCly, as usually when we interact it's because Aquila has gone and gotten herself maimed or blown up. But! Those times are always roleplayed out properly, and I know Sybil will always be there with a tube of nanopaste. I look forward to warble.
