Species you are applying to play: Diona

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?: 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: Diona is next in the list of species that currently interest me, and have a lore/history to them that actually inspires a character for me to play. In particular, it's the peaceful nature of the species in general combined with what I feel is a very curious attitude towards unknown species and areas.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Diona are a more curious race, that spend most of their time learning new things and growing their 'collective'. They tend to emulate the traits of whatever species they 'grew up' with or have had extensive contact with. They also speak and move slowly, and tend to 'think' slower than other species due to the collective nature of their 'minds' (They're actually a collection of individual organisms that act and move as a unit as they come to decisions together). Naturally, as this diona is going to be a surgeon, this means any surgeries they perform are going to take longer to complete than if a human were to perform them.


Character Name: Flowing Rivers of Blood in a Field of Battle

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs Flowing Rivers of Blood in a Field of Battle started as a single Diona Nymph, without a true name, that was grown aboard a NanoTrasen medical research vessel in Tau Ceti - Canis Minor. Much of this nymph's time was spent wandering this station, observing medical practices, sometimes being a nuisance, but mostly out of the way. It had learned quick that there were rules about sanitary environments and not interrupting procedures. During the several years it spent on Canis Minor, other nymphs had been grown occasionally, and they had started to grow a small collective, observing and learning from each medical procedure that occured in their presence. Because of the way the collective of several nymphs tended to move about the station, they had earned the nickname 'Flowing River' from some of the residency staff.

A few more years down the line, the collective had gathered enough nymphs to take on a humanoid form - Albeit one that was only about 4 feet tall. It was at this point that NanoTrasen decided that the Canis Minor's resident 'pet' was proving to be more of a distraction and hindrance than anything else, and they were ordered to depart the station on one of the transfer shuttles. The next several years, Flowing Rivers spent wandering Biesel, roaming from city to town to city. For a time, they wandered around Little Adhomai, finding the area curious with the high number of Tajaran in comparison to other places on the planet - It was in Little Adhomai that Flowing Rivers found their name and purpose.

A fight had broken out between two different gangs, one that involved gunfire and knives, and resulted in several Tajaran being left for dead in an alleyway while the others had fled. The diona, having observed many surgeries and medical procedures, decided to try and help one of the dying Tajaran. They found a knife in the trash bin, searched for the bullet holes, and started trying to cut the bullets out. Unfortunately, the Tajaran was dead before they managed to remove the last bullet. The police arrived on scene shortly after and arrested the diona. After testimony and an autopsy showing the victim had died from a bullet puncturing his heart, they were later found to be innocent of murder and manslaughter, and released. One of the officer's casually remarked that the diona should learn proper surgery before trying to perform it in the future - Flowing Rivers took this suggestion literally, and decided their purpose would be to learn, and practice surgery.

They attended a medical academy, acquiring a doctorate in medical surgery, and shortly after found themselves being recruited by NanoTrasen. Their first deployment was aboard the NSS Canis Minor, due to the collective's familiarity with the station and some of the longer term crewmembers. They worked there for four years, before being slated for transfer to the NSS Aurora during an annual review of employee assignments.

What do you like about this character? They're a peaceful character, one that wouldn't have a concept of 'good people' versus 'bad people' and will try to heal anyone, regardless of who they are or what they've done. Flowing Rivers has taken the hyppocritical oath, and follows it almost religiously, the collective being of a general consensus that humans value one's word above many other things - Meaning if they say they're going to do something, it's expected they will do it. I'm aiming to play this character as a very curious person, that will spend time trying to learn about the crew when not handling medical emergencies.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? 7.5/10. That's a combat drone getting overly excited for Senpai out of a thermo nuclear detonation. Or something like that. I know I'm not the best, but I'm decent at it at the least.

Sierra's great, they deserve AT LEAST a 7.6 out of 10. Ive also had several positive experiences with them, and I can firmly say that they're great with the whitelists they already have, and would do great with this one as well.

I can't wait to have this guy rooting around in my character's body.

Sorry for the delay. There's currently no position of overseer for the dionae, so I'm stepping in here. I like your application, and am willing to accept it!
