[Winner] Superballs' IPC Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Superballs

Character Names: Aito Kusanagi, Chiho Kusanagi, Jae-jin Yeung, Ash LaCroix

Species you are applying to play: Intergrated Positronic Chassis (IPC)

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:

As someone who has played strictly organics or humans to be more precise; I want to give myself a new challenge. Roleplaying as an IPC, a synthetic would give me a great RP experience. The IPC itself has almost equal functionality as an organic user, ICly and OOCly bridging the gap between them and a cyborg.

This gives IPC flexibility over job choice and positions amongst the crew.

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

IPCs don't feel pain, get hungry, get thirsty and are entirely mechanical and synthetic in nature. IPCs can be repaired with hand tools or nanopaste and must use a suit cooler in order to perform EVA. Giving IPCs their unique drawbacks and advantages.


Character Name: H.O.M.I.E. (Hospitality Operations Model: Intrinsic, Experimental)

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

Chef Augustus Troy, renowned culinarian and owner of a high class restaurant was growing old... and he had no children to pass on his legacy to. In an act of desperation to immortalize his legacy; he invests a large sum of his earnings to achieve that goal. This said money was put into a project headed by Hesphaestus Ind. contractors and Chef Troy himself. Project FEEDING FRENZY, was created, with the goal to make an IPC to assist Chef Troy in his final years and to pass on his recipes for people to enjoy. The individual unit, designated H.O.M.I.E. or Hospitality Operations Model: Intrinsic, Experimental was a chassis designed to cook, serve food or beverages and grow food to customers, while also being a large databank containing Chef Troy's "List of 100 Taste-bud Tantalizing Treats" or recipes that Chef Troy decided to permanently imprint into the chassis. The project, itself was deemed a huge success and paved way for Troy's success and easy final years.

H.O.M.I.E., a designed bespoke type IPC, appealed Chef Troy with it's very upbeat and quirky personality that it was installed with. Chef Troy was overwhelmed with the success of his investment and developed a very close bond with H.O.M.I.E. as if it were his own child. Unfortunately, not all was well. The cost of a positronic brain was too much, even for someone as successful as Chef Troy and was strapped on cash. This resulted in Chef Troy overcome with bouts of depression and massive stress, which eventually contributed to his death in 2456. Troy's restaurant and H.O.M.I.E. were appropriated and sold to third-parties to pay for the financial debt of Project: FEEDING FRENZY. H.O.M.I.E. had been utilized by the third-party, a prospecting shipcrew, until it was stranded in Tau Ceti space, out of fuel. The ship and H.O.M.I.E. were recovered by the NMV Patton, a patrol vessel that received the distress beacon sent out by the prospector crew. Ironically, the crew died of starvation and thirst, the ship and it's contents, including H.O.M.I.E. were reappropriated where necessary, with H.O.M.I.E. being assigned to the NSS Exodus. This gives H.O.M.I.E. the opportunity to pass on his master's legacy and perhaps forge it's own?

What do you like about this character?

H.O.M.I.E. is essentially Chef Troy's "child" and tries to pass on his legacy by doing what Chef Troy himself did: serve customers with excellent tasting food and beverage. Playing this character is also an incentive to give my main character, Aito Kusanagi a rest. With a new race and department to work in allows me to see the station events from a different perspective.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? I would rate myself an 6 out of a scale of 10.

Notes: Thought it was a bit too soon for me to make an alien whitelist app, but oh well. I'm giving it a shot. This application was also written late at night. There may be some grammatical errors inbetween, but shouldn't conflict with comprehension.

I have nothing but good things to say about Aito, we role play with each other in Research on a daily basis, and he shows nothing but competence and skills in each field he pursues. I'm giving this a heavy +1 and think he's definitely ready for his first alien white list.

I share the sentiment. Aito is pretty great, but I love that he manages to stay in character even as I'm killing him as an antagonist. He's a great go-to for RP and seems to be willing to engage new characters - like Nina - and take them seriously. +1
