Character Names: Jennifer Hynes, Jonas Hynes, New Dawn, James Middleton, David Caulfield

How long have you been playing on Aurora: About a year and a half

Species you are applying to play: Tajara

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:

The Tajara as a species seem to be easily impressed and convinced by the simplest of things, the concept of one true God, Heaven, etc would resonate well with their history, and their nature as a whole. Basically, I imagine them to be loyal to a concept, in this case, religion. (So no Raieed Tajara, thank God).

I want to play as a Tajara simply because his religion defies his (supposedly) nature and initial impression as a member of a supposedly an uncultured, uncouth, and morally bankrupt.

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

First of all, the easily pointed out differences: No footwear, No spacesuits not designed for them, and of course, the rolling of the Rs.

The Tajara as stated, are viewed in a negative light, so much so, it prevents them from being appointed in leadership positions, leading to some interesting scenarios with racism. However, I think their low position in society might also give them a rather unique view on spirituality and the nature of what God is.

Why does this species in particular hold your interest?

The Tajara for me are interesting in the fact of their history and nature, being commonly believed to be rabble and criminals, though their history begs to differ, being basically a story of liberation and revolution. Also, the stated unique views on spirituality and god. I’d like to try and explore that avenue of RP as a catman.

Character Name: Moses Tra’Jirra

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

Moses Tra’Jirra was the name given to the mewing infant Tajaran left at the door of the Children of The Holy Spirit orphanage in the outskirts of Lowell City. It was indicated by the tiny scrap of paper left at the base of his poorly worn basket, strung together with nothing but rubber bands and leaves, hardened by fire.

The orphanage was a Catholic institution, and was predominantly run by Nuns, caring for children of various races and ages, though all were educated in their respective languages and cultures (some at request), all were taught the words and teachings of Christ, the Bible being found next to each and every bed in the home.

Moses from an early age was taught to read, grasping the stories and teachings of the Bible relatively well compared to most of the other species, while they saw themselves as all powerful in the universe, arguing constantly over “who was the best”, Moses was quite content with what he was, a simple cog in the system, turning only so the cogs interlocked with him may turn. By the time he turned 15, Moses could read and write the Bible in his respective language, and in Sol Common, easily finding a grasp in both (thanks to the few Nuns that were Tajara).

Before long, Moses turned 18 and was accepted as a full member of his parish. However, he was not simply satisfied with this. He felt a strong devotion to the religion and God that he was raised with and wanted to preach the holy texts to others. Within the year, Moses chose to undergo the schooling required to become a priest. He attended several years of college, studying theology and philosophy, and then a few more years in a seminary study. When he was 27, Moses was accepted as a member of the Diocese of Lowell City.

He spent several years preaching to a parish located in the more seedy portions of the city, with fiery dedication. However, within a few years Moses realized he wanted to make a bigger difference. He applied to become a missionary at the age of 33, and was accepted the next year. With the blessing of local bishop, Moses became a missionary and was sent to the system of Tau Ceti to preach the word of God. He focused on bringing the word of God to the remote outposts in the system that were otherwise isolated from spiritualism and religious influences.

He spent three years moving from place to place, preaching in mining colonies and orbital installations, giving sermons and taking confessions. At the age of 36, three days before his birthday, Moses received a message from the archbishop of Mars. A deal had been struck with corporate giant Nanotrasen. The Church would send priests to serve on the series of mining and science stations that were to be commissioned, and in return, they would receive generous “donations”. Moses, who had dedicated his life to the service of the Church, was indignant upon hearing this. But, he was not about to abandon spreading the word of his God simply because the leadership was corrupt. Grudgingly, Moses agreed to serve on the newly commissioned NSS Aurora.


What do you like about this character?

I like how he’s different from the cookie cutter template of what is expected of Tajarans. He’s more passionate about things, and of course his piety must be taken into account. He was raised by humans, adopting their religion and values, while still being of a different species and having the labels associated with that being applied to him. That and the religious upbringing made for a rather unique early life for Moses.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

10 catmans/10


Roosty helped, and bullied me into doing it.
