(Note, I haven't played half of these for months, so no one'll recognize them.)

How long have you been playing on Aurora?:A year and a half, maybe, idk.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?:New experiences, Heads 'O Staff deal with a lot of things regular crew don't, like being prime hostages, organizing things for their departments, etc, as well as allowing for natural progression of at least one of my chars, there also isn't any actual obligation to play a head (cough unlike being a moderator cough cough) so I can do it in my free time.

I'm also "one of the better ones" when it comes to general in-game behavior according to others, so why not go for it.

Why did you come to Aurora?:It was suggested by muh brother when I started poking around SS13, I then terrorized Aurora with my baldiness and didn't see any reason to move.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?:no Ayah.

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

Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about:sexy ERP To use fancy language, Roleplay is about weaving a rope that's made out of story, every player is just one thread of this rope, and on his own, he is much weaker, but when weaved together with many other threads, it makes a strong rope/story, with every thread on it having it's own individual path mixing with the others, how well these threads cooperate with each other can make or break the rope, with too many weak threads the rope'll snap and everyone will leave sour.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?:Similar to how they ICly operate, Heads 'o Staff help keep people orientated with goals and directions, they can often keep a department working in cohesion so that rather then having to demand something from someone inside the department when you need it, there's never a demand in the first place, they're often the ones who enable inter-departmental cooperation to be fully possible.

They encourage efficiency within and without, and keep the departmental machine working without all its parts.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:Whitelisted players are to serve as examples to the playerbase, you don't expect a player with a Head whitelist to join a baldie who screams about NT being corrupt, as a head of staff or not, they're obligated to put their best effort into acting as an ideal player, while making sure that they don't leave sour experiences wherever they go.

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

Character name:Usiki Guwan.

Character age:33.

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs):

Usiki was born on Moghes in 2424 in the city of Ma'Ha'rem which didn't get nuked in the Contact War, there he grew up in the Zir'u clan while getting trained how to be a warrior, after a while it was evident he was doing poorly and changed tack to be shown how to be a healer, when he was 17 the clan leader dictated that the clan would move to Ouerea, so they did, he received education in a Human-run Medical School designed to prepare Unathi for general medical operations in space, Usiki took a liking to the surgery aspect of healing and medicine, and primarily trained in it over the long years.

When he was 33, the school shut down due to the Hegemony take over and Usiki looked for employment, he was dissatisfied with potential work on Ouerea and signed on as a Surgeon on the NSS Aurora and then the Exodus, Usiki had found himself dissatisfied with a lot of Unathi ideals such as highly rigid loyalty to their honor and to the concept of loyalty in general, however this all only bubbled to the surface when he started working in space and started receiving a lot more exposure to the other races and their cultural ideals, this came to a head with the Unathi Loyalty Act which Usiki eventually signed, this was the last straw for his clan who'd been dealing with his undesirable ways and so they exiled him and made him a Guwan, he very quickly re-located to Biesel because he wasn't adapting well to his new status, where he now resides absorbing more Human culture and much less of his own race.

What do you like about this character?:He's not painfully obvious about his preferences, the only indication about his own undesirable values on a glance is the fact that he's a Guwan, otherwise you need to put effort into finding out rather then instantly knowing the minute he opens his mouth, he also has a serious temper that he usually keeps under a cool exterior but goes all-out when he's completely pissed (it's his coping mechanism for things he cannot handle), which I feel gives him character.

What do you dislike about this character?:He's something of a pushover normally, unless he's given a fair bit of prompting he's not that inclined to physically handle people when they're not cooperative, when it'd be easier to just blitz them into a grab, he's also something of an ass when he's occupied with something, brushing off everyone unless he needs something until he's done.

What do you think makes this character fit to be a head of staff?:Usiki is rather practical, at the end of the day he'd rather do things efficiently then indulge pointless prejudices, he also knows to give off tasks to others rather then make futile attempts to do everything himself.

I also believe he's done rather well on the occasions that he has been put into positions of elevated authority.

Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?:Unlike my rather critical looks on my ability on past applications, I do believe I am doing rather okay now, and have got into my groove, stuff feels easier and I feel I have a firmer grasp on my character concepts in general, and am ready to advance to being a Whitelisted player.

Numerical Ratings are still utter trash so consider me 5/10 across the board.

Extra notes:i am tired and may regret posting this at this time

he will most definitely be shuned amongst other Unathi station side.
(how does Zundy post so fast like what i am confused)

You'd think that but nah, because again, he's not really open about it, there's only one Unathi that actually found out the extent of it methinks, and that was because traitor round.

Sure some Unathi or other could end up finding out and then spills the beans to every other Unathi thus ruining his reputation among all of them but what are the chances of that happening haha amiright guys?

I was honestly surprised Fire didn't already have a head whitelist. I've roleplayed with some of his characters, mostly CAC (who shouldn't be a head) but Usiki Guwan totally should be. He's one of those medical personnel I see on the manifest and say to myself: Ah! Medical has someone competant!

I think he would make a good CMO based on his technical skills and his amiable people skills. Fire knows how to roleplay well, so I think he can do this

Greetings my fellow spacemen, I'm here to comment on this thread.

This application without doubt is one of the most well-written I've seen in a while, it has small things here and there that will draw your attention and is not socked with details, I liked how you used the rope/thread thing to explain RP pretty awesome to tell the truth. Although I have no knowledge of lizards(Unathi) backstory I did interact with the character, and it seemed very fine and sane to me. Great answers to most of the questions and brief application with the important details.

As for fire as a player, he is one to draw attention of others by being subtle, you would never see him making a big mess, even when he is an antag, and we do share the same path, the path where he started chucklefu*king and then developed into a more mature player and roleplayer. He is a nice a person and has his brain in his head and I couldn't see him messing this up anymore than anyone else(me).

I'd happily support this and I urge you all to do the same because it would be a shame to reject this. good luck mate. +1

1+ from me, aslong as CAC doesn't become an RD
Rest assured, I am fully aware that CAC is the sort who'd never become an RD unless it was some sort of accident, and will hopefully never appear in the heads of staff section of the manifest, for all our sake's.

Despite one of his characters sucking some major CAC, Fire is a pretty good roleplayer, and his hissurgeon is more-than capable to be a CMO, from what I've seen.

+1, i like this guy. He's pretty unique, actually

Usiki Guwan is one of only...two, unathi that i get along with at all.. Dr Guwan is quiet, outspoken, and hard working, It's pretty comforting to have him around as surgeon

Also i see no reason why he couldn't play RD. The standards for research directors are apparently very low, and i see more questionable behaviour from heads of that department than any other. CAC would be a much better RD than quite a few i can think of who already fill that position

Justified because CAC and the Nanaki rarely ever interact.

One of CAC's things is that he doesn't care about people, this is less in the 'his death is meaningless' way and more in the way that he would barely even try managing people, he would dis-spell any notions of him helping people with teamwork and would probably tread on everyone's toes to get whatever he needs.

He can cooperate well enough with everyone else but don't ask him to take the initiative and make everyone cooperate with everyone else.

Like Mofo. I'd thought FaG had a Head Application and was already well known decent player for his roleplay.

I don't mean to kiss ass; I must admit, I know him well enough OOCly. I like him as a friend. He is friendly, but I would doubt he would be friendly in RP. He's probably that sort of guy who would take roleplay seriously. I've only interacted with Tpr. Carlson and Usiki/Guwan, and it's actually swell roleplay.
