Recommended Posts

BYOND key: Superballs

Character names: Aito Kusanagi, Ash LaCroix, H.O.M.I.E., Chiho Kusanagi, Jae-jin Yeung

How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Roughly a year, not counting the small times I've played one or two years ago.

Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?: It gives me a chance to play in a role of high responsibility, another challenge I wish to take a stab at.

Why did you come to Aurora?:I'm a drifter from many different RP servers, Apollo, Pure Roleplay, UT, Aphelion. I've played NSS Aurora inbetween my tenures on the past servers, but after the deaths of the RP servers I play on I came here.

Have you read the BS12 wiki on the head roles you plan on playing?: Yes.

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: The act of roleplay is literally what it means; to play a role of a character. It's a form of acting, where the person playing the role uses their creativity to portray their character's emotions, personality and even physical mannerisms. Generally, ideal roleplay is simply a person acting out a character and should be kept at that.

What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?: The purpose of a Head of Staff is essentially a department manager making sure people are doing their jobs. Heads of Staff also have the power to amend their departments and staffing to allow for efficient productivity and are compelled to do so (e.g. firing, allowing things to be built, approving requisition of items, etc.) Heads of Staff are also a representative for their department and employees on a command level.

What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?: The responsibilities of whitelisted players is to be a role model for people to look up to. Showing other players how their department functions and works. Whitelisted players must follow rules IC-rules (if not an antag) and operating procedures in an effort to give a positive impression towards new or even regular workers in their department.

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

Character name: Aito Kusanagi

Character age: 30

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

On the morning of August 21st, 2427, Yuuko Kusanagi a professional actress and Masahiro Kusanagi, a surgeon were blessed with a pair of healthy fraternal twins. These twins, a male named Aito and Chiho, female were born within the Yousha International Hospital located within the overcrowded and sprawling cityscape of the Tokyo Megacity. As a young boy, Aito's career interest was nested from an early age. Aito enjoyed b̶r̶e̶a̶k̶i̶n̶g taking apart electronics and reassembling it with his twin sister, if the two weren't tinkering they were left to digging "treasure" in artificial parks and scarce amounts of undeveloped land occasionally finding a rare bone or piece of trash from their adventures.

Aito enjoyed a normal school life from elementary school to high school and was seen by his peers as intelligent, due to his persistent membership in science and mathematics clubs. Attending college after high-school graduation was an easy task and was rewarded with a full scholarship and completed his undergraduate studies with a dual major of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, earning a BE in 2449 at Mimei University in the TMC. Aito continued his studies to pursue a Ph.D. in Exosolar Archaeology and Excavation, with paid internships from NanoTrasen aboard the NSS Exodus, working as a Lab Assistant. Aito Kusanagi earned his Ph.D. in 2457 and due to his time as an intern, was recommended a position in NanoTrasen and signed a contract shortly thereafter and moved to Biesel, Mendell City for ease of transportation.

What do you like about this character?: Aito is quite a friendly, hospitable person and will go out of his way to give a helping hand to people within his department.

What do you dislike about this character?: One thing I dislike about this character is his passiveness and how fast he can acquire boredom. During times in which some resistance or aggressiveness would've been beneficial to him, he always prefers a non-violent approach and outcome.

What do you think makes this character fit to be a head of staff?: Aito Kusanagi has been a dedicated research department member excelling in Research and Development and Xenoarchaeology and has been praised for his work in R&D specifically. Kusanagi has also been an Interim Research Director a few times, allowing him to have a taste of being an RD.


Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: I would give myself a 7/10 on my roleplaying capabilities.

Extra notes: Initially, Aito's age was 25 but I've made some adjustments to his backstory to make him 30 years of age, meeting the age requirements for the position of Research Director. Slight record changes will follow suit.

I'm not too familiar with college degrees and how it works, if my character's education history sounds off or is strange, please let me know.

Aito Kusanagi is one of my favorite characters on the Exodus, they have taught me ICly and OOCly how to role-play better, honestly if it wasn't for Aito you would probably see a-lot of characters like Tom from me. If I have a head whitelist, Superballs definitely deserves one. +1

Aito Kusanagi is a great science character, and strikes me completely as someone who is absolutely qualified for a head of staff job. I certainly would trust Superballs with a head of staff whitelist based on their roleplay as Aito. I don't know much OOCly about Superballs, but I've never seen them or any of their characters really get in trouble.

EDIT: Oh yeah, +1
