Storyteller's Unathi Whitelist

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: AbandonedScholar

Character Names: Alexander Lecter, Parser King

How long have you been playing on Aurora: I've been playing on and off over the last few months. I've probably played about a month cumulatively.

Species you are applying to play: Unathi

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: I've always been interested in playing alien species, specifically Unathi, because of both the physical and psychological differences with the races. It's fun playing with the cultural diversities, especially on a server with higher role-play standards. It allows for a more immersive and varied experience, which makes the game fun for me.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Unathi have an obvious physical difference to Humans, giving them a somewhat intimidating position when compared to their Human counterparts. Also, their culture results in different emotional reactions to certain people and situations. I very much enjoy playing with the little mannerisms and slight differences between Unathi and Human characters.

Why does this species in particular hold your interest? I've had characters in the past which have been Unathi, some in particular which I've made deep back stories for. I would like to bring these characters to the Aurora station to bring the characters to life here as well. Most of my favorite role-playing experiences have come out of playing an Unathi character.

Character Name: Artyom Vetochkin

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

Artyom Vetochkin was born into a violent background in the midst of a conflict on his home planet of Moghes. This resulted in the death of his parents only weeks after he was born. However, he was recovered from his home during a lull in the combat, and adopted - and named - onto a Russian mining station. On this station he learned to speak Russian fluently, and began his learning process among the crew of the vessel.

Due to the primarily Russian station containing a crew deriving almost entirely of humans, for several years after his arrival his heritage and the lore of his people was lost to him. He was raised as any human child was, lacking in all but the diet of an Unathi hatchling. As he grew, Artyom learned a great many things about how to perform several ship upkeep tasks. He became interested in the art of Bartending, becoming very popular among his Russian kin. He also took time to learn the processes of Robotics in his spare time, making him a skilled machine operator. He met his closest friend on this vessel, and they spent many years station hopping, trying to make a decent living together.

What do you like about this character? He is a very personable character, with a back story that I think fits him well. I've had many experiences with him, and he has become well liked on other stations I've played on. I understand what kind of person I've made him to be, and therefore I play him well in a role-play scenario.

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

I'll vouch, I've had several months of experience with scholar on many different servers; the last of which being where Artyom was created, early on in us being there. That being said, I can fairly say I've gotten quite a bit of experience viewing his roleplay and it can be some of the best I've seen, if he's being serious, which I'm sure he'd do with an unathi. The character up as an example is already well-developed as he said and brings something a bit unique amongst crews without being absolutely ridiculous; which is fun, from my experience. So yeah, plus one thingy or whatever.
