Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Orr404

Character Names: Haliver Ultime, Farideh Ultime

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?: Yes I Have

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: Probably the main reason is simply because I like the idea of them and that makes me want to play as one. Another reason is because I believe it will help improve my role-playing. It would allow me to create a character who was pretty new to the world so was is fascinated by things we find very normal.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: There are many differences such as how they have different needs and wants then most other spices. They also have different fears unlike a human they wouldn't have to fear a phoron leak and also unlike a human the lights going out could give one a very good reason to fear for their life


Character Name: Anomalia (Latin word for anomaly)

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

Anomalia was the product of a personal project of Haliver Ultime she wanted to see if it was possible to make an IPC out of machine artifacts and if it could improve on any aspects. Of course Nanotrasen knew about the project since to get the parts she needed she would need access to the artifacts she dug up they were willing to give them to her, but for a price and so most of the money she earned went immediately back to Nanotrasen she decided to name it project anomalia for when she needed to talk about it with them. She started the project when she was a little over thirty she chose to use only artifacts that had no harmful effects. Once she gathered half a dozen artifacts the big question then was how to get the parts. Artifacts could not simply be taken apart by a screwdriver and as it was she only knew how to destroy them some sort of explosive device. That gave her an idea part of an explosion is an extreme release of energy if she could perhaps direct the energy of an explosion to an inch or two she could cut open the artifacts. She made many attempts with many different methods over the next three years. Finally she managed to make a device that using sounds waves could break the outside of an artifact without destroying the parts inside.

It was not a perfect method not all artifacts reacted the same, but none the less she continued over the next half a year she collected and figured out what the parts did not all of them, but enough to begin building after another six months it was done with a little modern tech to make them free willed. At the age of 34 Haliver Ultime had spent four years on this project it may have started off as a side project to her other work a way to fill time, but now it meant much more she felt that this was essentially her child she was about to switch on. And thus Anomalia was born soon after she deduced the fact that Haliver Ultime considered her there daughter. Liking the fact she decided to encourage those feelings. After some test Haliver determined that not all the systems were working a full capacity she believed the source of the problem was that she did not have all the parts. So she continued collecting artifacts both so she could do repairs and try to bring Anomalia to her full potential. Soon enough she found out what her mother was doing for her. Living in a small apartment most of it taken up with things to help Anomalia, little to no savings and the fact that she had not had two days off in a row for the entire four years. All of this and more made her decide to go and work at Nanotrasen so that her mother could live a better life.

What do you like about this character? I like many things including the way they were created it effects the way they act. I like the idea of mechanical artifacts being used to make her since it would make her unique in many different ways. I like many other things, but I think those are some of the big ones.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? I think I am I decent role-player I slip up sometimes, but for the most part I think I'm good. If I were to put it on a scale from 1 to 10 I would say I'm a 7 I'm defiantly not bad, but I'm not perfect.

Notes: Let me know if you see any lore breaking things in my backstory. I am open to criticism and willing to make changes.

So, wait - your character's consciousness is built out of... explosions? Artifacts? Honestly, I'm not really sure if I can follow it entirely. What kind of synth is your character, exactly - obviously not an MMI, as they lack an organic brain - but definitely not a positronic brain, either.

As much as I hate this word, and when I say that I don't say it lightly - it seems a little bit snowflakey.

Well not made of explosions just there are not many ways to break larger artifacts ingame and explosions are one so I was going off that for how they would get the parts though they did not actually blow them up just used a form of energy part of it since explosions are the a rather violent release of some form of energy. As for what type they are a desgined one created for reaserch purposes in this case a bespoke if I am not wrong sorry if I didn't make that clear enough.

That works for me - though I'm not a huge fan of this character being created by another character of yours. Of course, this is just a me thing - I'm pretty much flat out against characters by the same person being related in any way. I think it's boring.

Anyways, I'll wait for some feedback on this - if it's all good, awesome, cool. If it's bad, well, woops. If you don't get any feedback I might throw you a bone and accept it anyways.
