Jenners' Head App

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Jennalele

Character names:Ananda Santana, SiNSIA, Eira Yates, Lirivien Kolton, Avelak Nirisha, Reanne Strafford, Leon Ortega, Narcisa Aucciello, S.I.G.R.U.N., CHiP, Chenmo de Xiaochou... Will add any that I forgot if I remember them.

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: I lost track, started playing some time this summer.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I like to think of myself as a generally experienced roleplayer, and I think I could bring some fun into the departments I plan on heading- Chiefly, Medical and Engineering. In medical, it’s important that the crew is organized, that sensors are up—Generally, what’s stated in the wiki. They’re capable of coordinating themselves, considering the notable lack of heads usually on station, but it always helps to have the CMO reminding the chemist to make clonexadone, that the Virologist has a steady income of radium and whatever else they might need, and so forth. In Engineering, having a CE makes coordinating the engine setup and solars leagues easier, as well as designating official roles in the case of a breach, power outage, or otherwise. Not to mention, they help ensure that the wonderful land of Atmosia is being monitored and maintained.

Roles aside, I think I could bring some goodness to the RP table with this. Heads are looked up to and expected to be a bit of a role model, I feel, and I’m willing to step up to that.

Why did you come to Aurora?: I was recommended to come over by a bunch of friends, and I stayed for the awesome quality of RP I found here. You’re like a really weird, slightly terrifying family. <3

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?: Extensively. I know the departments I plan to head very, very well.

Please provide well articulated and argumented answers to the following questions in a paragraph each.

Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about:

The shorthanded, most common definition of RP I’ve heard is usually something to the effect of “Assuming the role of a character, playing out their actions and reactions with others doing the same,” but in reality, it’s much more than that. Through roleplay, I’ve met amazing friends, and amusingly enough, my SO. I’ve improved tenfold on my abilities to write and describe, to the point my English professor has asked me if I had considered a career as a writer. It’s one of the most unique and potent creative outlets I’ve known. When you step into the role of your cheery engineer or your knowledge-driven xenobiologist, you do so much more than just pretend to be them through actions. You assume a part of them for that time, like an actor in a play, and sometimes, you feel what they feel. There’s no real short definition that describes just what roleplay can really be, because when you put your mind to it, it can be absolutely anything.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: In-game, when a player (Especially a new one) sees a head of staff on the manifest, they make a mental note that the player is probably experienced—A role model, in a way of speaking, and a trusted player that they can go to with questions and hopefully be able to learn in a welcoming way.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: It’s quite a similar role to what I said above. New players that see that a player has head access usually associate them with an experienced and/or trusted player. They set an example for people looking for one, and should generally be comprised of trusted and responsible players.

Please pick one of your characters for this section, and provide well articulated responses to the following questions.

Character name: Eira Yates

Character age: 36

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs): Eira Yates was born and raised on a particularly small off-world station. Not a science or military vessel such as the Odin or Aurora, but rather, a particularly quiet civilian orbital. Her parents had divorced soon after her birth, leaving the girl to grow up with her mother- A particularly eventless life as far as excitement went. She took a particular liking to the sciences as a child, and went through with it in her higher education with a doctorate in biomedical sciences, then going through med school for surgical qualification.

As soon as she was out of school, she applied for and was accepted for work with NanoTrasen, beginning as a virologist on an auxillary station. From there, she would transfer from station to station as openings were created or filled, working medical as was her designation. It eventually came to be that she was transferred to the NSS Aurora—Originally as a virologist, but soon expanding to cover the surgical field again.

What do you like about this character?:In terms of playing Eira, I find her fun due to her general personality. She’s not an outright mean or rude person, but she tends to forgo tact in favor of getting her point across bluntly. She may hold grudges, but it really doesn’t matter who she’s operating on- She’ll treat them regardless of her standing with them if they end up in the medbay. She’s highly germophobic, and hates uncleaned blood in the medbay- To the point she’s occasionally gone on a “Space cleaner rampage” through the entire bay. It’s… Interesting to watch, to say the least.

What do you dislike about this character?: Eira is… Difficult, in terms of forming bonds to other people. It doesn’t mean she’s not on fair terms with anyone- She’s just hard to crack open, really. Not to mention I sometimes feel awful when she’s gotta be mean. ;n;

Do you think this character is fit to be a Head of Staff? (Please note that Head characters must be over 30, unless given special clearance): Generally speaking, yes.

Why?: She’s capable in her field, and holds basic knowledge in each department required for medbay to function. She’d enforce proper procedures, would encourage the chemists NOT to make space drugs by hopefully giving them other tasks or at least preoccupying them. She’s not overly dominant- If the staff know what they’re doing, she’ll let them be, and if someone does a dumb, she’ll certainly make sure they know exactly what they did wrong.

Please provide well articulated and argumented answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: 7/10 ish, probably. Like most people, I hate trying to rate my own skills, but I’d say decent enough to be in a head position.

Jennalele is certainly one of the best RP'ers we have on the server currently. Indeed, the skills present rival some of our current heads. I have no doubt having Jenna as a head will provide an example for a few heads, as well as for new players coming in. As well as just doing good in whatever department decided.

+1 from me, most certainly.
