[Accepted] Taintedglory's good old boys Vaurca App

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Taintedglory

Character Names: Sam Lowe, James Albright

Species you are applying to play: Vaurca

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): I'm not even sure what color schemes they can be. Probably yellow? Maybe red?

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

Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph format. One paragraph minimum per question

Why would you do this to me?

Why do you wish to play this specific race:

I could sum this up in one sentence, but here we go!

There really isn't any logical reason why I want to play this race, I just do not like playing Tajarans, Unathi, or IPCs. The biggest urge I have to this is to experiment with the race, try to add to my own RP capabilities and really enjoy something different, something new. I mean, look at these guys, A cybernetic style Hive mind Insect people? That is some top dollar TableTop Pen and Paper stuff right there. That seems like something I could enjoy, really get in the mood to play. It would really bring a new aspect on the station to try and have more interesting and exciting RP. I personally havn't seen one roam the station, and I'd like to add a regular one to the station for some fun.

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

It's an insect person. The bounds are like Cyborgs with chitin skin, and less rights than the Old school Tajaran lore. They would be fun on their own rights just to be a Janitor or Chef or something and add some weird to the game. The unbound though? Man I could have alot of different types of RP to that. Join Science to talk, observe, learn and create along side humans and Skrell with a new and more alien way of thinking. Join Engineering to improve and build better energy sources. Its things like that, with the alien anatomy and culture these guys exhibit that could make these departments have some freshness to them.

Im going to do two of these, one for bound, and one for unbound.

Character Name: Ka'Viax'Ahji Zo'ra

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

One of the many thousand Bound worker with the Zo'ra Hive, this one is from the Biesel "Colony" that was formed by the grace of the human government. It was immediately chosen to go to work on the many Stations and outposts that are under Nanotrassen control. It has been bred and taught its entire service to be a General technician for minor mechanical issues, such as broken dispensers and faulty wiring.

What do you like about this character?

Its a cyborg janitor with half the emotional abilities. I just like the idea of being one of these bipedal insect guys who are bound for when I want to put in minimal thought.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

Pfffft.. Absolutely garbage, but I've been able to successfully integrate myself on SS13 alone across multiple HRP servers, including being the Headmin on two of them and owning a third. So I suppose someone likes the way I RP.


Character Name:Ka'Akaix'Nain K'Lax

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

Unbound, and awaken from its beautiful and tranquil VR, Ka'Extian'Nain K'Lax has become quite upset in this newfound reality. It has been spending all its time in the VR machine building, tinkering, discovering. Its mind has always been active, but since the awakening it has been exceedingly bored and unhappy with life.

Its nearly drelict ship that its hive is apart of has been built into the side of an asteroid that it so happen to have crashed into. Upon crashing, and desperate for a power source, the Hive discovered Phoron along the asteroids innards. Using this and some technical know-how, the Hive has been running off phoron to supply their ship, But resources run limited, and many of the Bound and Unbound leave to "work" For the local Humans, the Nanotrassen. In trade of Man-power and Phoron, Nanotrassen in returns supplies the various supplies needed to keep the ship running.

Ka'Extian'Nain K'Lax is one of these Man-Powers. It goes to the NSS Aurora and conducts research on Phoron, for both the NT overlords and its Hive.

What do you like about this character?

It has an actual goal, unlike most of my characters. Would give me something to do. Maybe even write a journal for some future RP.


I have no clue what I'm doing, and I hope you understand that.

...Nitpicking further: It's Viax, not Vaix.

Furthermore, James Albright's a cool guy. You're fairly competent and you know what you're doing with your RP, I wouldn't mind seeing you buzzing about. I enjoy the sporadic RP I get with you, and I think I remember a hilarious exchange between him and my dionea where he gave Rose a guest pass called "The Tree". It was great.

James Albright, my man.

A wonderful person to RP with and always manages to liven up Research and sometimes the station when I play with him. Our antics together (albeit really dumb sometimes) helped us develop our characters together, all the while staying focused on the job. With this being said, I support this whitelist, although it suck to see James Albright less than usual.

The feedback is positive and you show enough of an understanding and enthusiasm that I'll be glad to trust you to play a Vaurca!

Application accepted.
