IHasYourNom's Vaurca Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key:IHasYourNoms

Character Names: One Who Aids The Saplings, Leaves That Clense Flesh, Kara, Nova, Elisa, Sarah Bluegate, Emma Blackwell (Note that I haven't been active on the server recently, and as such many may not recognize the characters.)

Species you are applying to play: Vaurca

What color do you plan on making your first alien character: Black

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:

I wish to play as a Vaurca because I find their lore intriguing, especially the difference between a Bound and Unbound version of said race. This could create some interesting roleplay situations, be it a Bound Vaurca practically falling at the feet of an Unbound one, or a Bound Vaurca being subject to a lot of confusion due to its distinct lack of care about pain.

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

Whereas a human has had all its life to become acclimated to having a free will, many Vaurca aren't used to this and have varied feelings about the differences. For example, a Bound Vaurca would simply do as anyone above it tells it to do, and to the best of its ability, an Unbound Vaurca might do the bare minimum and a human might refuse to do anything at all. Alongside this, a Bound Vaurca could quite commonly become confused by any sort of panic about pain, namely due to the fact that they simply do not fear (nor care) about it.


Character Name: Za'Viax'Akiith Zo'ra

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs Akiith is a Bound Vaurca from the Zo'ra 'hive' and as such, has lived a relatively bland life up until this point. Previously, he was exploited for his rather deft hands and used as a basic medic when the need arose, he always served without question (of course, as a Bound Vaurca he was unable to question).

He was recently selected to be a token of good faith by the Zo'ra, packed up and sent off to the NSS Aurora like one would send a tool or birthday present. He was recieved by NanoTrasen, explaining that it "was the will of the hive" that he be used as a token of the hive's appreciation. When questioned about the manner of his transportation, he showed no distaste, simply replying with "It was the will of the hive." In fact, that seemed to be his go-to response when questioned on any of his personal preferences or qualms about life as a Vaurca. Though he did not detail where he was to be placed on the station, it was quickly discovered that he had an aptitude for the job of a general medic, or medical intern.

What do you like about this character? I like that Akiith is (as most Bound are) rather different to any other races, even though some cannot feel emotions he simply has no sense of preference. If you told him to do something, he would do it without a single doubt in his mind and this is what makes him an intriguing character to RP as. Though, he does show opportunities to develop, perhaps developing the closest thing a Bound Vaurca can to a friendship with one member of the crew, also giving the possibility for awkward encounters in which Akiith blatantly shows that he has no idea how to act friendly.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? I would rate my role-playing ability as relatively good, I don't break character in IC chat and try my best to steer away from LOOC/OOC chatting during play. Though, I cannot avoid the occasional spelling mistake which breaks immersion.

Notes: I shall be away on holidays from 29/03/16, so don't expect to see me around from then until 01/04/16 at the earliest.

I don't really recognize many of your characters like you said but, after reading through your application, it seems that you at least understand the Vaurca lore from as far as I can tell. Anyway, I would be willing to give this application a +1 due to me not seeing many issues coming from it.

I don't recognise any of your characters, so i can only comment on this application.

You seem to write and present well. Personally i, for one, would be very happy to see a Vaix medical intern (Bound can be medical intern specifically, and not any higher medical rank), i've never seen that character opportunity used

I really love both medbay and bound vaurca, combining the two will be fun. I'd help train and instruct you, send you on lots of fetch quests, and draft you as my bodyguard in times of emergency.

+1 from me, this is exciting, and i'd love to see this character around

Hello! Sorry for the delay in your application. If you have an application that goes on for 4 days without lore developer comment, you can always send me a PM and you should a response by myself or the lore dev within that day! (Or several PMs, since I can be rather forgetful, never be afraid to pester me!)

Your application is solid from my own understanding of the Vaurca species and you play out their unique characteristics well. I'll be glad to give you a whitelist! :)
