Xelnagahunter's Dionae Whitelist Application.

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Xelnagahutner

Character Names: Eric Derringer, Qwerty, Vel Carin, Xel Carin, Harrit Traft, Atyos Tonim, Craig Landerson.

Species you are applying to play: Dionae

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?: Just today, 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: The race itself is interesting due to it's unique styles. The recent lore revamp creates something solid I can work with, without being super restrictive. I also want to diversify my character list, which has five humans crammed in with only two xenos, and I'm not overly interested in the Unathi or Skrell. To me it's about the quality and that's what I'm looking for with this whitelist, perhaps not even fleshing out my first actual character until I can evolve a hatchling diona nymph.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: The general uncertainty of the race creates large felxibility. Yes, humans are flexible as a race but Dionae are widespread and ancient with no really strongly cohesive back story. This means I'm able to make whatever I want so long as it fits withing the known physiological and psychological features of the race. Their ability to learn new things very quickly is also something of a fun situation, and something I can RP well with the speed at which I learn new mechanics in SS13.


Character Name:Born from Space Dirt ((I've always wanted to name my Diona literally "Verb to Noun" as a joke.))

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs: Born from Space Dirt is a newly grown Nymph born on the NSS Aurora. It's growth cycle was rapid however and it quickly merged with other new Nymphs from the station and became the dominant neurological piece, only mildly absorbing the personalities and traits of it's siblings. As a working Dionae they took to botany with their "parent" and learned to help as a basic station assistant in the civilian sector.

As time rolled(rolls) along, engineering became a place where their skills were sure to be very useful, as such they took to an apprenticeship, where the fast paced learning of their working form could excel and propel them to a full engineer quickly. Their favored activity on station is setting up the singularity due to time in space and time near the radioactive singularity.

What do you like about this character? I like their curious nature and youthful innocence. I also love that they will be very close to someone aboard the station by default once they are grown, though I can't theorize that the character will turn out precisely as predicted.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? I'd go with a simple 5 or 6 / 10. I'm not great, but I can hold my own and make things enjoyable for those around me.

Verb to noun.


I always do noun of noun.

Or noun of verbing.

Also, I actually thought you were already a diona player.

You just seem like one.

You've got that spirit.


Nope, not yet. I play humans, IPCs and Taj. That is all.

Also, the "verb to noun" joke came from my Werewolf: The Apocalypse days. It was a long standing joke about deed-names. Diona seem to have a similar naming convention, so I felt the need to make the funny.
