[Accepted] Lucychan42's Head of Staff Whitelist

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Crazytoast42

Character names: Aerianna Blackthorne, Tel’Elaru Rosaria, Mahara Kur’Yer

How long have you been playing on Aurora?:Two months.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I've been waiting for it but now I feel it would be my best chance to apply and be on a command position. I've already done some work commanding and helping people when we're in a time of need.

Why did you come to Aurora?: Didn't have anywhere else to go for RP. I have a long life story about that but I'll spare the details. A player that isn't active anymore showed me Aurora and it's been wonderful to have something like this again.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?: Yeah, CMO.

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:

Role play is the act of playing someone else, getting into the mind of another character and acting them out. You roleplay to develop a new persona and see how they interact with others. Some people hone this in and have fairly constrained characters while some do things even the player wouldn't have considered; it's all a matter of the character itself and how the player wants to roleplay. It's exciting to see the different interactions between characters and see how personalities can vary from even the same player going into their characters. As well, role play is the fun of having these people interact and seeing what results come of their daily affairs.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?:

To keep everything organized is basically what I imagine any head of staff is primarily tasked with. They're receiving the most information out of anyone in their department and even information that may be relevant to future affairs but not immediately concerning (such as the RD mentioning something that may need medical or security aid soon). The Heads of Staff can keep everything organized and help everyone keep their bearings in a stressful situation, or at the very least stay at their posts and perform to the best of their ability. With them, it's less of a free for all of trying to perform tasks.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:

Whitelisted players should set the example of how to perform the whitelist they've been added to. A Tajaran should actually act like one, as should a Skrell or really any race, as well as for command positions. A Head of Staff should perform their task in a way that is not only beneficial but possibly inspiring to other players in or out of their field. It doesn't have to always be so amazing that it’s life changing and causes someone to OOCly quit drinking but an example should be set to an extent where people would eagerly desire to be at that level if not higher.

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

Character name: Aerianna Blackthorne

Character age: 30

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

She was born in a Martian city, raised in the Sol system. Her life in her early years were far from the highlight of the life she's lived now. She was social, friendly, though for some years she went through periods of crippling depression and seclusion. Her teen years were the harshest, with the turmoil of hormones and emotions she faced a struggle with herself rather than with the world. It was some time before she was formally diagnosed with BPD and medicated for her anxiety and paranoia stemming from the disorder.

As she got treatment, her life was back on track. She had plans for the future and saw herself in the medical field from a very early age and she wasn't about to let anything steer her from that path. With hard work and dedication, she was able to earn her degree and go into medical school, where she interned as a nurse. Things were going well for her, though a tragic accident is what changed her fate.

Aboard the NSS Canis Minor, she worked as a nursing intern in between hours of study and education. One shift changed her when a fire broke out, spreading quickly for unknown reasons. Official records consider it a tragic accident, but regardless of the reason, Aerianna was left scarred permanently. Her arm was damaged beyond repair and was amputated and her face had been severely burned. Her eyes, in kind words, were rendered useless by the fire. After a year of recovery she had been treated but not unmarked by the fire. Burn scars still mark her face and her glowing blue eyes and prosthetic arm are a constant reminder of the incident.

While cliche, she rose from the ashes of this incident, continuing her education and her work. While a year delayed, she was able to make off with her PhD in Medicine as well as a few years of internship under her wing. With this new chance for life, she found employment at the NSS Exodus, determined to do aid others and utilize her medical training to keep a safe environment for her workers and to rescue those that were harmed.

What do you like about this character?:

Charismatic and talented. I'll never forget the round where she had quite well been caught by a HoS for enthralling all of Medical, but she managed to convince everyone the HoS was crazy and was released. She knows what she's doing and she's very in touch with people in general; she strikes me as a fairly empathetic person. She's made a handful of friends and she's become a memorable person to others for her behavior (for better or for worse) and seems to have the respect or at least recognition of several others in command positions.

What do you dislike about this character?: Probably her emotions, even if I do like them sometimes. They make her a bit realistic that she reacts or stresses the hell out, but they are meant to be excessive at times due to her mental state. While they make her a bit more in depth as a character, at times I worry how others perceive it. Also her bionic arm and eyes, EMPs can effectively put her out of a round since she can't do many medical tasks when she's blind and has one arm.

What do you think makes this character fit to be a head of staff?: She's performed as interim CMO on multiple occasions, worn the coat and all, as well Honorary Captain. She performed well under these circumstances, I feel, and did her best to ensure medical was working as well as it could. She works well with helping people learn and she gets snappy when she has to. She has quite a bit of knowledge in most of medical and only is unaware of certain chemicals which can frankly be fixed with a cheat sheet notepad.


Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: 8/10, certainly. I can disconnect from my characters and I feel there's still some room for improving variety and reactions, but for the most part I feel confident in my abilities.

Extra notes:

I'm probably only going for CMO. Maybe if I ever go outside of medical I'll still take a while to adjust to the new department and get my character adjusted into the atmosphere of the station before immediately jumping in with them.

Yes, absolutely. Toast has shown they're more than capable of doing well as a medical doctor and they're fairly competent overall. Good RPer. Almost had a vampire coven in lesbay once.

I can't say I could tell exactly whether you'd fulfill some of my own expectations I have for command, but I'd be willing to give you a chance as there's nothing to suggest any suspicion in regards to it. Give them a chance, I say.

I have appointed Aerianna Blackthorne as Interim CMO as Acting Captain Alex Graves to 'test' her during emergency situation.

  • Portrays Leader skills to get people going and hyped during Emergency Situation (Heist Invasion).
  • Good Grammars.
  • Is involved in Roleplay Organization, "Health Advisory Board" and is active.
  • Well Matured. Can keep her tongue to herself often.
  • Fun.


Here's some stuff I'll give you a tip to avoid:

Stop blushing.

Lucy is fun, and a great friend, i love having her in medical. one of my closest longtime colleagues.

Her main flaw is an inability to control her temper sometimes, which can cause lots of swearing and irritability, but she's working on that and hopefully it won't be a problem.

Definite +1 from me, i'd like to have her as CMO
