[Accepted] Juani2400's Head of Staff Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Juani2400

Character names:

  • Lea Fontaine (Engineer)
  • Ibrahim Al-Enezi (Engine Technician)
  • Azra Kouri (Medical Doctor)

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Around three to four months.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: I would like to be whitelisted as a Head of Staff because, even if I love playing lower-ranked roles, I think the whole Head thing opens up a whole new world of RP possibilities, in terms of the different new personalities and backstories the characters may have. How did they get to that position, how good is that leader when in stress situation, how does he/she react when put under pressure... While you can do most of those with regular characters, I think the fact that they are a Head of Staff now can be quite beneficial to the RP capabilities of the character.

Why did you come to Aurora?: I initially came to Aurora after I came back to SS13 from an 'absence', only to find that the server I used to play more often had vanished. I then started doing a bit of research to find other servers with similar play-style, as what I really enjoy from SS13 is Heavy RolePlay. One day, I found Aurora, and decided to try it out playing as a janitor. Enjoyed it, and decided to stay.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?: Yes, I have. Also, I do have some experience as head of staff, as I have developed a few head characters in my past, mainly CEs, CMOs and Captains.

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: Roleplay is all about incarnating another person (or other being), with their own personality traits and their 'special things' that make everyone different in one way or another. Having always the subject's personality in mind, Roleplay is and should be about reacting how your character would, building up a backstory that would, most surely, influence how that character acts in the future, interacting with people in different ways and creating different situations for both them and you. Roleplay is also being loyal to the character. If the character is clearly against any form of government or authority -Anarchist- , then he would probably reject the offer of getting to be a Captain, for example. The main ideas that drive the character's life must always stay present in you head when playing with it.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: Heads of Staff play a crucial role in every round's development. Their actions are going to inflict directly on how and how much people actually enjoy the round. Heads have the power to demote people and basically limit quite a lot the potential of fun people could have than if they were doing jobs that they would enjoy. Also, whitelisted Head players are considered to be 'Senior players' who know most of the mechanics of the game, and it's possibly someone who can really help new players adapt and learn about the game. Your character may be rude to everyone, but OOCly, you are required to understand that person may not know what to do and help them to get through it with the help of your experience.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: By being a whitelisted player that has been allowed to pick one of the jobs that can greatly influence the game, you have a great responsibility over your shoulders. Whitelisting is nothing more than a filter that's prepared to only allow capable and serious people into the Head positions, and you are representing the accuracy of the system every time you play. It is important to show the server that the whitelisting process actually works, and that you are there because you are capable of keeping up with the requirements.


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

Character name: Azra Kouri.

Character age: 38.

Please provide a short biography of this character (approx 2 paragraphs): Azra was born and raised in Tungusta, a medium-sized city at the north of Adhomai. She was the third of seven children. She's the daughter of a retired General and a Housewife. Her father served in the military, fighting in the Republican side until he was terribly shot to his chest and lost his right lung. He was then retired from the Army, as he could no longer serve because of his medical condition. Her mother never worked, and stood at home taking care of their children.

Luckily enough, Tungusta was never invaded by the rebels, thanks to the New Kingdom's territory blocking terrestrial access to the northern part of the continent. Azra grew up helping her mother at home and at the small farm they had for self-sustaining the family, as she studied at the high-school. Azra had showed interest in Biology and Anatomy since she was around twelve, and it wasn't strange to find her at her bedroom reading books about it. It was when she was eighteen when she decided to leave her home-town and go study Medicine at the Republic's capital city, Nal'Tur. She shared a house with another three Tajaran that would later become their closest friends. She finished her studies and started doing some practices as an intern at the local hospital. Once she had her degree, she decided to apply for a job in a few health-related companies, but all of them rejected her because of her lack of experience. It was a few months later that she saw the NT's medical staff recruiting campaign and decided to apply. She passed the recruitment process and was hired as an EMT in one of the stations, where she served for around four years. She applied for a Medical Doctor position, as she met all the requirements, and was successfully promoted to M.D, but transferred to a military ship. She served for another few years in that ship, where she gained a lot of experience thanks to the affluence of patients due to the nature of the ship. However, Azra was aiming for something quieter, so she requested a transfer, and was assigned to the NSS Aurora as Medical Doctor.

Now, Azra thinks she has had enough as Medical Doctor, and wouldn't mind getting a higher position in the Chain, so she applied to enter the Heads Formation Programme in order to become a Chief Medical Officer.

What do you like about this character?: I like how Azra is a very calm, yet energetic Tajara. Her personality is warm and she doesn't tend to be rude, even in the worst of situations. Also, she tends to be very social and open, and will normally start a conversation with you if you are sitting next to her.

What do you dislike about this character?: Azra, given her personality, can be naive and innocent at times, as she tends to trust a lot in people.

What do you think makes this character fit to be a head of staff?: I like to play Azra as a very calm, smart but cautious Tajara, and I think those traits really outweighs her naivety, as she's very capable of performing Head work.


Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: 7/10. I wouldn't say my RolePlay is bad, at all, however, it is true that sometimes I tend to think a lot how a character would react, and it's not strange that I blank out for a second before doing a /me, or react with my character, often resulting in people leaving before I do so. I'm all in for realism, though, and you won't see me doing crazy or unrealistic things, in fact, I tend to be as detailed as possible in all my RP interactions, and I enjoy centering even on the smallest details, if I can.

Extra notes: N/A.

I've RP'd a lot with Juani2400 characters, mainly Ibrahim Al-Enezi and I have seen them in an acting head role a quite a few times and I can say for sure they are a very good roleplayer and thoroughly deserve this white list.

This app gets a +1 from me.

Well, I have seen all of Juani's characters ingame multiple times and have interacted with them with many of my characters. Overall, they are a very good roleplayer, at least from what I've seen. They seem to have a well-developed biography for their head of staff character and I believe that they are experienced enough OOCly to play in a Head of Staff role. I'm definitely giving this a +1
