Cake's Vaurca Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: CakeIsOssim

Character Names: Centurion, Adeno, Halligan, Gaelynn MacCambridge, Conway Miller, ESRA

Species you are applying to play: Vaurca

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

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:

In all honesty, I don't like the cat people, lizard people, or tree people. They aren't attractive to me, no matter what kind of character I think I could build with them. IPCs and humans are really the most versatile, and I prefer robots, anyway. The Vaurca, I find interesting, because of their culture. I sort of like to think of them as organic synthetics. Pretty much only living to work in whatever caste they were born into.

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

The Vaurca can't speak Basic very well, so communicating alone would be interesting. Being a drone would also be interesting, as you really don't have any personal gains. You don't care what anyone else thinks, just do what you're told. I think being a worker would provide the most interesting roleplay, as I don't prefer the warriors (which is also why I dislike Unathi). Humans also don't operate under a hardset caste system, making (most) of the Vaurca seem like, well, ant people.

Character Name: Ka'Akaix'Velriz K'lax

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

"I think we'll call you 'Rizzy,' your name's too damn complicated," the technician folded his arms, looking at the bug man in front of him. "And no free rides. We can take ya there, but y'gotta pull your weight." "Yezz,willdo," Velriz said, looking at the man and then peering behind him at a hulking robot lifting a big, heavy-looking crate. "Youhaverobodzz?" The technician looked behind him at the noisy robot, his arms still crossed, "Yeeeup. Some 'a the crates too heavy for us to lift, so we make ol' clanky there do it for us. Some of 'em even got brains, and talk like people. Pretty neat, ain't it?"

Velriz worked with the crew of the freighter for several days, earning his place aboard so they'd take him to the other side of the bluespace gate. Most of them gave him funny looks every time he spoke, but they seemed alright with his being aboard as long as he worked. It didn't really matter how, but he had a mission: bring back any knowledge he could regarding advanced technologies to his hive. He has a specific liking towards synthetics; after all, they seemed to be a lot like his own species. Finally, the freighter slipped through the bluespace gate, and at Tau Ceti they arrived. Unfortunately for Velriz, they dropped him off at a province on New Gibson. A province filled with Vaurca of the Zo'ra hive. Velriz didn't know whether to look down on the many magnitudes of mindless Bound, as he was unbound, or to try and fit in with them, as he was part of what the Zo'ra considered an inferior hive.

After a few weeks, Velriz managed to secure a desk in a school for aspiring roboticists and scientists. A perfect opportunity for one such as Velriz, carrying such a self-placed burden. He learns quickly, and through some of the school's supplied contacts, applied for an internship with NanoTrasen's many research departments, as he had heard that they were leading in many fields. He had also applied for Hephaestus Industries' robotics department, but was denied, and then shortly after, accepted into NanoTrasen as an intern, and assigned to the NSS Aurora.

What do you like about this character?

Velriz loves robots, and cybernetic enhancements. I wouldn't call it a self insert, but it ties in with my OOC love for all things synthetic/AI-based. He doesn't mind being out of his VR, as long as he can be around metal people. He also doesn't mind his body, as long as he knows he can augment it as he pleases.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? 8/10. The last time I answered this, it was a 7/10. I've improved, but I still have a lot of room.

Notes: I have a feeling there's going to be a lot of Unbound. Too many to be really realistic, so out of the many Vaurca that I plan to make, this is going to be the only Unbound. The rest are likely going to be bound working class of some sort.

Hands down, amazing roleplayer in every non-human role that I've seen them in. One of the few I would actually trust being able to pull off a Vaucra just off their amazing flexibility when it comes to playing xeno roles.

This, as well as Centurion being ten outta ten.

Make this man a bug.
