How long have you been playing on Aurora:On and off for about a year or so. Recently, a few weeks to a month.

Species you are applying to play:Tajaran

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?:The entire novel. (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 think that providing me with a different style of roleplay could benefit both me, and others. Me, in that it would allow me to practice a different personality in roleplay, and others, in that it gives a different situation (in this case, an Tajaran character) to roleplay around/with.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Tajaran, depending on ethnicity and upbringing, can have different cultural and political thoughts. Speech-wise, Tajaran generally roll the "R" sounds in words.

Why does this species in particular hold your interest? Playing a Tajaran wold allow me to explore different personality traits, and roleplay with a new group. (Engineers)

Character Name: Sukri Tal'at Sajjad

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

Sukri was born to a Atmospheric Technician and Engineer on a long-haul cargo ship owned by a newly founded transport company on a trip from Biesel to a small colony in the Outer Colonies. For his early childhood, he had stayed with his Engineer father. However, in his later child years to teenage years, he had been with his mother, scurrying though the maintenance shafts, learning about the ship he had lived his whole life inside and out. For the majority of his life, he had virtually never interacted with anyone other than the crew of the cargo ship.

However, one day, he was twenty two, and the ship had been docked at a trade station in Biesel. Sukri had decided to leave the ship and explore the terminal the ship was docked in. Due to his lack of clothing other than his Engineering garb, he had to leave with his jumpsuit of which identified him as an engineer. Sukri had wandered off, and ended up in the civilian section of the station. He had found himself a small cafe that served food similar to that on the ship, of which also overlooked the hulking freighter he had grown up on. He had used the little credits he had scooped up on his way out of his ship to order some food, yet halfway through the meal, a voice said something via the Intercom. "Private Owned Hauler Basilisk will be departing shortly." Sukri, after hearing the intercom message, immediately stood up and sprinted towards his terminal. The station was crowded at the time, so he had to weave his way through a thick crowd of people. He had eventually made it back to his dock. The ship, however, had already begun undocking. The behemoth locks restraining the ship to the station had released, and the enormous cargo airlocks were beginning to close. Sukri had tried to sprint faster, however was unable to make it to the airlock before it had closed. He watched as the ship began to drift away from the station, and as it finally flew away. Sukri had slumped to his knees, sobbing, knowing that he would be seperated from everyone he knew for a very long time.

Sukri had returned to the cafe, his fur below his eyes soaked with tears, his eyes bloodshot. He slumped down into a chair in a far corner, staring off into space. After sitting there for about fifteen minutes, the owner of the cafe approaches Sukri. "Uh, hey? You okay?"

Sukri, after a moments thought, replied to the Cafe owner. "He was left behind. Everyone he knew... gone... Without money. Without friends. Without family."

The cafe owner decided to give Sukri a job as a bartender and maintenance technician in his small Cafe. Sukri had eventually learned how to make basic drinks, and, being a repair-man for the cafe, was able to tinker and improve the devices. One day, a Nanotransen Recruitment Officer had been on the trade station for his shuttle to refuel, and had gone to the cafe to order some food. Sukri, at the time the Recruit Officer had entered the Cafe, had been tinkering with the drinks machine. The Recruitment Officer had taken notice to Sukri's skills as a tinkerer, and had walked up to him, and eventually convinced Sukri to apply to join Nanotransen as an Atmospheric Technician.

Sukri, after being hired as a Atmospheric Technician, was transferred to the N.S.S Aurora, as an Atmospheric Technician.

What do you like about this character? Hes generally distrusting, but will fiercely protect close friends.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? Good, however if I am tired, it is not as good.

Notes: That backstory took a while to write, while playing a round at the same time.

Only positive experiences from Kiwi thus far (especially with his Diona character, who is pretty funny when he tries to french lightbulbs), and while the character's backstory is a little snowflakey to me I won't hesitate to give this my seal of approval as Kitty Commander. +1 indeed.
