Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: AWPenheimer

Character Names: Wolfgang Kapp

Species you are applying to play:Tajara.

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): A light white.

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:

I've always been a big fan of Tajara and very much enjoyed how they played. I've played them many times throughout my years playing SS13 and wish to play one here as I believe that is where I reach and use my full skill RP'ing.

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

For one, how the speak and behave. They refer to themselves in the third person and roll their 'r's. Over a certain age the also are very submissive due to the slave master occupation, meaning they will obey the heads of staff and most other humans unless it's conflicting with morals.


Character Name: Assim Zhan-Ka'tar'ro

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

Assim was a true workhorse of the race. Originating from the Zhan-Khazan ethnic group he stands at a mighty 6"5 and is built incredibly strong from years of hard labour. He is fairly young for all he has experienced, 32. His fur is thick and a deep single color of brown apart from around his face which seem to become lighter. His eyes shine a dark yellow with black flecks embedded into them. His claws are quite sharp yet shorter then normal ,probably ground off from all the work he has done throughout his life. He is always smiling and laughing, a very funny and good to be around Tajara.

Assim has a great hate towards the nobility races. He has worked hard all of his life for these Tajara and been pushed further down into poverty. He would do anything to get back to them, he has a great hate towards any nobility of the Tajara race. When the civil war broke out, he cheered with joy, finally he would have his chance to fight! He joined the Liberation army as soon as he could, being a fore runner in forming it. He became respected within his unit as being furious and brave. He fought long and hard for his people and his cause, wanting to be free. However, in his area the Liberation army began to lose. They began to get beat and hard. Lots of young Tajara was lost and this is where Assim saw the true horrors of war. His unit was left for dead by his commanders, and he fled. He ran and never looked back. He boarded a boat to the northen parts of the New kingdom to begin his new life away from it all. This is where he heard of Nanotraesen, and saw a true escape chance, away from the horrors of Adhomai.

After months of gruelling and shady work in the New kingdoms in the north, he had enough money. He brought himself a nice set of clothing, got himself a job as a security officer, the only thing he knew how to do. He had made it. He was going to earn a better life for his family. His military experience made him a fine security officer with a tiny bit of medical skill.

What do you like about this character?

The way he looks and plays. He's tall, strong, imposing yet he is a big fur ball. He's cuddly and really friendly to anyone and everyone. I also like the lore of the Tajara race and the civil war seems like it will make a character very opinionated and fun to play.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

I like to rate myself highly, but Tajara is where I excel with most play time, and what I enjoy the most.


Hope you enjoyed the story, can always write more :P

If you haven't heard of me it's because I don't play American times.

While I'm sure you're being honest about having read the lore to the species, I have to ask, have you read the lore on the Aurora wiki page specifically?

What relationship does Wolfgang Kapp Assim Zhan-Ka'tar'ro have with the Revolution? Why is his name so strange, and not a more native Tajara name? Which race of Tajara does he belong to, and how does this affect his treatment/his treatment of others?


His backround made him not only a good engineer and medic, but his physical attributes make him a fine security officer. He is truly a jack of all trades.


Currently characters are expected to choose a single department to specialize in. "Jack of all trades, master of none" is not really something you can do for security and engineering and medical, which are all three specialized fields. If you wanted to have broad cross-departmental knowledge you would need to play as a Skrell. There is also the fact that these jobs have individual job qualifications and requirements that would put his age well over 50, and in addition Tajara do not have the access to higher-education to get masters in three entire fields while barely making ends meet - the level of skills is not consistent

I shall take a look at the lore again now and make the required adjustments :) he's not really a master of all, just his upbringing gives him basic engineering knowledge like how to weld and such, while his basic medical knowledge is just basic first aid, bandaging and cpr etc etc

Thanks for the advice.
