Thundy's IPC Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Thundy

Character Names: Charlie Dove, Fel'siti Rummka'nen, Khaw Elsani, Ka'viax'lor Zo'ra etc

Species you are applying to play: IPC

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

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Mhm!

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:

IPC have been an interest of mine for some time, I just felt I didn't have have any ideas that were suitable. When I read how the Skrell had had terrible issues in the past, I imagined that you couldn't have a Skrell designed AI without a) it being superior to all other AI somehow and b) that that superior-ness would somehow be stifled by someone's own agenda. I took interest in personalities such as Marvin from Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and GlaDos and Wheatly from Portal and decided to explore what really makes up an intelligence by breaking it down into separate parts of the same, hoping to create something that, with its being only at a fourth its capability, would show how far behind the humans were then the skrell in their research of AI.

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

They seem to have a linear process of thought and action that isnt found in humans. As they are created beings, they do not and probably will never have the superior mental capabilities that a human does but the fact that they can feel their own independence and yet not actually be independent of their code intrigues me and I hope to explore it further.

Character Name: Cable, DuckTape, Keys and King (Theres four parts to this personality which I will be roleplaying separately)

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

PLEASE NOTE: This is part of an overarching story I am creating and as such I have put the background into the spoiler of both of my applications to save time.


TLDR: Jaquill00X92 was build in a long past era, when the Skrell still put effort into their AI research. After the outlaw of this practice, a group of four Skrell scientists, all of whom had been working on the Jaquill project since its birth years before, decided to hide the AI in four parts, dispersing them across the known space. The knowledge of this action was passed down the generations from father to son until, one day, it was discovered by a human. Whether by accident or not, a Skrell named Ahkun Chiran let it slip to Charlie Dove about the shards with the knowledge passed down to him. Immediately hopeful to discover it, Charlie set out to the three places she had learned were the last known locations of the shards: On Moghes with the known gangster Khaw Elsani, on Ahdomai in the possession of Houssam Jawdat and at the Godswood residence with Esa Godswood. After precurring them through bribery and theft, Charlie gathered the shards together and set Ahkun to research them at length. There was just one problem: the last shard was on a NanoTransen station!

Seeing that the AI would not be whole without the last shard, Charlie, after failing to get it on diplomatic means, hired a team of mercenaries to break in and steal it. The mission, for unknown reasons, was a terrible failure. The mercenaries told their captors of Charlie and she was arrested and all of her research confiscated. NT took control of the project with Ahkun head of the research team. Ahkun was hired to place the shards into separate IPC units which he was hired to observe whist they worked aboard the station.

Disclaimer: I use "He" as a loose term. They will gravitate naturally toward being one or the other gender but I would like that to happen on its own.

Cable liked his brothers. He liked everyone. He loved to talk and laugh and sing and jump and he would fly if he had the right moduals installed. He was happy when he was charging, he was happy mopping floors...he was happy when others were not happy. It didn't matter, he would be happy and he would try to make people happy when they weren't, even King.

King didn't like Cable. King didn't like anyone. He did things because he had to, was made to. When people ordered him to go, he complained every step of the way. He shuffled his feet along, complaining about serving where asked and complaining when he wasn't.

Keys tolerated people, even other AI's like his brothers. He was manipulative and proud. He and Ahkun got on the best when Ahkun conducted his construction and research on him. When someone was feeling down, Keys was there to make them feel worse. When people talked to him about their worries, he served them a drink and reminded them that they really were not as good as him. He used people when they loved him and despised them when they didn't. He dreamed of the day when he would be able to leave the station and make his own fortune. He imagined himself a leader of a wealthy company. One much like NanoTransen. They sure did know how to run an effective business.

Ducktape had a job to do. He knew what it was and that was all that he cared about doing. When someone was in trouble, he did everything within his power to save them. Whether it was running around as an EMT or simply doing security detail, if someone needed a hero, he wanted to be that hero. Although he wasn't sure he fully understood why, he wanted to save lives. Every life he heard was cloned or lost was a personal loss to him. He made sure to have an engraving on his chassis: "Protect the Weak."

What do you like about this/these character/s?

Depending on where the story goes, I hope that these characters will be something the station has not or had rarely seen.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? Meh. I just like story-telling.

Interesting concept, though I have to ask three things:

First, fill out your full sheet. There's two sections missing near the top.

Second, are these going to be individual IPCs or a single IPC with split-personality?



1) Oopsies. I filled out two applications at once and just have missed it, will do that asap

2) They are different IPCs taken from the same AI unit. They are split personalities sort of. But they are separated Chassis.

3) I'm gonna make up my own password, with black Jack and hookers!
