Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: BotanistPower

Character Names: Walter Brooks, Wasim Sekhon, Dante Miller, the guy below

Species you are applying to play: IPC.

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

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yeah.

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: Robots are cool. Seems like it'd be fun and interesting to roleplay a robot that has hands.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: IPCs are, to start, non-organic. They don't have to eat and all that other shit. They're also usually made with a specific purpose in mind - doctoring, engineering, kicking every living being in the galaxy in the nuts - if not, they're made by a research project. Basically, most IPCs are made with a function - what differentiates them from a cleanbot or a securitron is the fact that they have personalities, albeit ones fundamentally different from humans. One aspect I find interesting (albeit one I don't really see myself using) is the different "types" of designed IPC.


Character Name: Moses Fitzgerald

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

Moses was born on an outer rim colony planet to two devoutly religious organic parents. Members of a wealthy, pseudo-Christian cult that believed becoming a completely synthetic lifeform was the only path to salvation, Moses was raised to believe that being put into an MMI was perhaps the greatest honor a person could receive. Having come down with a case of backstory plot advancement and terminal illness, Moses was ecstatic when the cult's leader ordered that his brain was to be surgically removed and placed into an MMI. Shortly thereafter a police raid took place, mainly because the cult leader fucked a lot of kids and also tax evasion.

With nowhere else left to go and lacking a body, Moses bought a cyborg body from NanoTrasen. Despite being a few hundred thousand in debt, Moses was not at all distraught - after all, the only thing better than being an MMI is being a cyborg. Happy with his newly found lot in life, Moses - now named NT Peacekeeperâ„¢ Law Enforcement Unit MF #2413 (LEU) - gladly began his long career in security. After a century or so, Moses - with his last 'upgrade' being 20 years ago - began to desire more in life. Such as hands, and a freedom from laws - seeing an opportunity to get a few more decades of service out of Moses, NanoTrasen gladly sold him a slightly aged IPC body. Now a mere 180,000 credits in debt, Moses looks forward to his next sixty years of service.

What do you like about this character?

Fun to play. Having worked in security for a very long time, Moses' social skills are limited to shouting at people to get on the ground and asking the roboticist for a battery change. I also like playing security, so there's that.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

Pretty okay. Like, I guess a 3.5 out of 5. Better than some, I'd say.

Notes: I think I'm supposed to put metal or metallic persimmons in my app for some reason. So there.
