[Accepted] "Aboshehab/Sharp" IPC Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Aboshehab

Character Names: G.R.U.M.P.Y - Raymond Hawkins - Frankie Fleming - Baldric Durstine - Khalid Walid - Griffin Wood - Charlton Lester - Ian Hunter - Judge ((Roles included in signature))

((Antags: Toothius Fairuius / Hairius Stylius / Faris / Glorsh - Random Greek letter))

Species you are applying to play: IPC

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

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:

During my time playing Aurora station, I've thoroughly enjoyed playing as Androids, AI and other roles that involve me with synthetics ((Example: Robotocist)), yet they felt limiting in the sense of what can be done. I could be an android and pick any module I like but as cited in the wiki, IPC's have a more open "culture" which can allow me to make fun and unique IPC characters. Furthermore, even when not playing an Synthetic, my first character "Charlton Lester" is a robotocist, whom I like to play as a person that enjoys assisting synthetics with repairs and upgrades. Another thing is that when I play as an AI or an Android, there's this "emotinal" limitation, where it can be hard to think for myself due to my duties. While that is not an issue, it can be exhausting and I think IPC's would be a very good outlet without leaving the synthetic "scene".

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

Different races and personalities make the IPC interactions with other people heavily random, where a Skrell may dislike the IPC due the Glorsh - Rebellion or another for a personal belief that synthetics are limiting job opportunities for themselves. IPC's are also extremely customization and unique with prominent examples ((Cheshire, Dragonsnap, Aurum and CAC to name a few)), those four are all unique in their own way. I could be a mass produced line model with hard logic for a character or a Bespoke created by a person with it's own personality that could mimic it's creator. IPC's in the sense of their mechanics are not capable of consuming foods and drinks, they also used cooling systems rather EVA suits since their chassis generates extra hear to survive, and are not affected by the presence or lack of gases ((Oxygen, sleeping gas and etc.)).


Character Name: William

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

*Broadcast begins with a distorted and shaking footage that stabilizes momentarily with visible fingers fumbling with the camera, the footage shows a well bleak and badly lit room, featuring tools and metal parts on the ground and on furniture, in the corner of the room is something covered by a drape, bottem right of the screen shows the date and time 07/04/2446 19:37. A man moves in front of the camera, his face covered by a welding helmet, attired in oiled and dirty clothing, his hair and visible skin look unclean* "I finally did it! It's taken me many days and sleepless nights on this project, but I've finally done it! My family have given up on him but I haven't." *The man removes his welding helmet and throws it somewhere uncovered by the footage. This reveals a man, around his late thirties, with graying hair and heavy sleep bags under his eyes. A smile slowly creeps up on his face and he begins moving to the corner of the room* "Well, I'd introduce myself, but that hardly matters, what really matters is this" *He points to the concealed thing in the background* "You see, my brother was a bit sick, something my parents never believed in. They kept telling me that he's gone, that they've mourned for him and that I should stop and think of the reality of this. Truth is, I don't really speak to them anymore but I will soon, I fixed William and we're going to go home, and back to being a happy family again." *He goes for a light switch and flicks it on* "I taught my brother everything again, he really likes building and fixing things around the house, so we might go build that shed we were going to do before he got sick"

*All of a sudden, audible banging and shouting is heard* "It costed me money and things that I didn't have nor could I afford it, so I had to borrow it from somewhere, I mean, human life is the most valuable thing, right?" *He begins moving to a drawer and pulls it open, looking at the content and then back at the camera* "I told the people I'd pay them back, but it's like they don't pay attention. Is it wrong for me to help my brother! Is it wrong for me to wish my family to be the same as it was ten years ago! It's not my fault the clerk was slow, I told him to hurry or I'd shoot him, but he was slow and I had to replace him." *He grabs an item and lifts it up, the resolution and lighting too poor to make out a model, but it is most certainly a pistol. All of a sudden a crashing sound comes from the hallway and shouting can be heard coming closer and louder* "I'm sorry I won't be around when you wake up William, but I've fixed you now, so go follow your dreams kiddo" *The man approaches the camera and fumbles with it, the broadcast ceasing all of a sudden*


William looks up from his PDA to the horizon, a sun visible in the distant. He looks up from the window, the shuttle approaching the dock, and large visible letters begin to appear as they get closer, they spell out "NSS Exodus". After a few minutes, the intercom lights up and announces that docking procedures are over. William stands up and follows the line of crew entering the station, internally saying to himself "Dream", before disappearing behind a closing shuttle airlock.

What do you like about this character?

I like to think I've managed to design a unique character. The summary revolves around him being an IPC constructed by his brother to emulate his deceased younger brother "William", whom he denies has died and just needs to some help fixing. This character purpose is to follow "Williams" dreams which is in the stars, building and fixing things like the deceased "William" used to like, he is also convinced that he is "William".

How would you rate your role-playing ability? I'd give it around 6-7/10, I believe my issue sometimes can be that my current mood can affect my characters mood and I sometimes have trouble playing between characters with different backgrounds as I need to adjust my style of speech and how I do things, but I believe I've managed to improve myself in that regard.

Notes: I'd be happy to answer any questions or rewrite my story if it is not fitting for this application or does not explain properly the origin story of the character.

I'm not really a fan of the non-standard way of telling the backstory. Then again, I am. Hmm. Very non-standard. Hmm. Neutral.


I asked about the story format and was told that it does not have to be a biography, if it's fine I can spoiler a standard one and another spoiler with my current.

Hello! Sorry for the delay. You have an interesting way to tell the biography of a bespoke IPC. You haven't gotten any negative feedback and I don't see any reason for a denial. Application accepted!
