[Accepted] ChevalierMalFet's Tajaran whitelist app

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: ChevalierMalFet

Character Names: I got so many. Chadrakhar Gokhale, Subhash Gokhale, Sarad Amrapurkar, Mizgur Vokimok, George Stolojan, Felipe Estigabarria, and of course, NICEBOT.

Species you are applying to play: Tajarans

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): Black / Dark-grey fur

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: I have.

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: Let's keep it 100 here - 'cuz I gotta catch 'em all. I'll probably follow this up shortly with a Skrell app, then an IPC, and then I've collected the whole set.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Tajarans are bitter, and their general experience for some time has been failure and catastrophe, tinged with a tiny modicum of hope that they can scrabble out a living by being subservient to their new Human masters. That bitterness - of being walked-upon, of being second-class, of being an also-ran civilization - appeals to me greatly.


Character Name:Hrzgelam Siirimlaz

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs Hrzgelam Siirimlaz was born on Adhomai in a town I'd like to call "Nowheresville." There were many like it, but his had the misfortune of being caught on the border and thus in the crossfire between the PRA and the ALA. When Siirimlaz was 14, his father was arrested by the PLA authorities for hoarding food, and was executed by the police. This hardened Siirimlaz's heart against the PRA, and when he was 16, he joined the ALA as a guerilla fighter.

Siirimlaz fought, and he fought well. After four years of fighting, he became an NCO, leading a team of 7 fighters. When his group got caught away from their lines and was whittled down to 4, he opted to surrender to the PLA and demobilize. Siirimlaz spent a few months in a prison camp before being "rehabilitated," and gave up on his dreams of ever making something of himself or being a person worthy of respect. After proving he could be a good boy, he was allowed to enter society as a broken and unwanted man. He borrowed all the money he could in order to get a NanoTrasen work visa, and now works a variety of menial jobs aboard the station - sending all his wages back home to his mother and to his loan-shark. He is beaten-up and tired, and he despises himself.

What do you like about this character? Poor guy! My heart goes out to the little bastard. I also like the fact that even though he's going to roll janitor or cargotech, he's still extremely capable (ICly, anyway) of kicking ass.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? I would have given myself a 10 two months ago, but nowadays I seem incapable of keeping Ajit Patil out of trouble, so probably substantially less than that.

Notes: This character was inspired by recent events in Colombia, and is based on the assumption that ARA fighters can in fact surrender to the PLA without immediately being put up against a wall.

Well your backstory is pretty solid aside from a few errors like the plural form of Tajara, which is not Tajaran nor Tajarans but actually Tajarra if regarding someone directly and Tajara if talking about them in third person.

You cats = Tajarra

Those cats = Tajara

You're a cat = You're Tajaran

Hohohhh. Complicated stuff.

Other than that though, everything looks proper and ready for a great ROLEPLAY EXPERIENCE. I'll accept this whitelist now.
