[Accepted] Jenners' Skrell App (Squishysquish)

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key:Jennalele

Character Names:Uh.. Lemme try and list them all. Lirivien Kolton, Eira Yates, Leon Ortega, Reanne Strafford, Aleksei Rogachyov, Ananda Santana, Chenmo de Xiaochou.

How long have you been playing on Aurora:Since some time in.. July? August? Rough estimate.

Species you are applying to play: Squ- Skrell.

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yis, and I think it’s awesome.

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:Well, for one, we need more skrell on this station. I think they’re a really interesting race, and I’ve had a pretty specific idea stewing in my head for a long time now. I’d like to give it a shot, and hopefully add a little splash into the usual mix of RP.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human:Mentally-speaking, Skrell tend to be much more logical and collected, and react differently to a human’s fight or flight instinct. See: Thinking themselves to death. Their way of thinking tends to be quite different from the average NanoTrasen human being, from their relatively lax outlook on sexuality, to their general pride and analytical way of looking at a situation. I’d really like to try to pull this one off. Not to mention, wordslurring because weird tongue.

Why does this species in particular hold your interest? I’m not actually certain. I think it may be more of their mental and thinking process, as well as the complex tonal language- As a whole, they’re a pretty cool race that I want to try my hand at playing. I really enjoyed reading their wiki article, and actually wished there was more there- I'm a sucker for details, to be frank.

Character Name: Risii Elliera

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

Spawned and raised in the great underwater cities within Laush V, Risii was one of just three surviving eggs from her parents’ spawn. She was taught Basic alongside Skrellian, though had little contact with outside races for most of her youth life. She took an early fascination to chemistry, and quickly began to invest more of her time and knowledge into the science.

As she began to grasp a firmer understanding of chemistry, reactions, and what did what, she began to wonder what she could apply her knowledge to. With a dislike of violence, she knew from the start she wouldn’t want to put her knowledge into weaponry or violence. Her mind wandered to the opposite soon after- Medical work. When she came of age and experience to be able to handle herself, she began working in the city fabricating chemicals, medications and gels for the fellow Skrell in the city.

Curious and naïve as she was, Risii began to wonder what life was like outside the city she had barely left. She had heard tales from others, stories, read books, seen on Telescreens, and more— But she’d never actually left Laush V. Taken by the need to learn again, she began looking for a new job that would supply this need. NanoTrasen put this into motion for her when the company signed her on as a chemist and scientist. Just like that, Risii was sent off from her home planet, where new adventures, new findings and more awaited her, aboard the NSS Aurora.

What do you like about this character? She’s a fresh change from my other characters, for one. She’s a bit naïve, doesn’t know a ton about other races besides what she’s learned through books, and hey. She’s a skrell. Squishy squish.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? I’d say that I’m a fairly good roleplayer- I wouldn’t want to boast or overestimate, though. Regardless, I enjoy it- a lot, in fact, and I’ve got a fair deal of experience under my belt.

Played with you a good number of times and you're definately a gud rp-er.

Baring a serious complaint, I'd say this app is accepted

Psst, apps should be left open for 3+ days to give people a chance to leave feedback/oppose if they want :x

So I'm gonna wait a little bit before actually putting this one in the system.

Jenna is more than capable of RPing a Skrell. Really, it's less a decision on if she can do it, more on when she actually gets to. I've RPed with her for over a year, and the quality never deteriorates, no matter where or what she may be. She's got my +1, but either way, it's no contest. Think this is practically already decided.
