Wer6's skrell application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Wer6

Character Names: Brooklyn Addison

How long have you been playing on Aurora: About two weeks give or take a few days.

Species you are applying to play: Skrell

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 wish to play Skrell because I have a previous experience. On other servers I made a character that people generally liked, and remembered. I want to repeat that here. Skrell also allows me to make more decisions, that are different from a human perspective. In my opinion Skrell is the best of the races because they have a easy time integrating with Nanotrasen, and the fact that all races have unique abilities and talents suited to their own planet is interesting.

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

Skrell are a race of amphibian-analogue bipeds. They are 50 years ahead of humanity because they have not had a “Feudal” state in there development of civilization. The Skrell cannot eat meat, and are restricted to plant matter, so you have less options to eat, in-game. There is also alcohol, which is extremely bad for a Skrell, they could get sick or at best, extremely drunk. Skrell have a high pitch in voice, and have tones that are inaudible to races other than Skrell, which is used for conveying some emotions. This might lead to the misconception that Skrell are emotionless, but that is not true.

Why does this species in particular hold your interest?

This species holds my interest because I have played it before, I and loved playing it. Skrell are a technologically advanced race, and as such I can look at other races with disdain, as the lore says that Skrell look on races such as unathi and Tajaran as "Childish". Due to their lack of technology. Skrell most often are leading in technology in exploration, they have found Vox and Diona, each with interesting drawbacks and traits.

Character Name:Mekhi Harrow

Please provide a short back story for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs

Mekhi Harrow was born on Jargon 4, at the age of 4(human years), he was brought into a habitation station named "Blue bell", orbiting Jargon 4, he lived their until the age of 19, always at the stations medbay, At the medbay, he learned many practices of the Skrell involving Skrell, human, and occasionally unathi biology. When he turned 19, he enlisted for a civilian medical job at the skrellian navy, and was put into the medical residency program. He was a medic for 3 years achieving the rank of Sergeant(Or what ever is the Skrell equivalent).

Mekhi, after retiring from the navy, went into the habitation station he was raised on for 5 years, he got educations in leadership, genetics, xenoanotomy(mainly human, and unathi), and botanical sciences. During his years in collage, he mainly kept to himself, aside from his leadership duties, and learned much about a lot of subjects. He excelled in the studies, and eventually passed with excellent marks in everything but nonlinguistic.

Mekhi then got a corporate sponsorship to come to Nanotrasen space, he learned all the procedures and requirements of Nanotrasen stations, and got a shuttle into Nanotrasen space. He worked on multiple stations, eventually getting 6 months of experience on stations, and clearance to apply for better pay grades and positions. After this, he went onto his current assignment, NSS Aurora.

What do you like about this character?

I have played him before. When I played him, people generally liked him, and I reacted to situations as Mekhi in a way that I thought was efficient and ICly, good for his perspective. Mekhi is, in my opinion a great person to RP with, and still apply medicine.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? I would say that I am generally not in the way, but still RP well enough to see some praise about my characters.

Notes: somewhat bad common because he taught himself in the span of a week. Quite adamant about his pronunciations, and stubborn in that regard.

This would be a good addition to my own medical Skrell character, only she solely knows Skrell biology. I've also played with the name of her home station before being "blue" something. Perhaps our two characters could find common origin on a spawning station that's designed to mix genetic material, raise eggs and educate young Skrell.

Anyway, this character sounds rounded enough, has room to develop and you've shown to be someone who actually likes to roleplay. I'd love to see them around the station sometime. Might make me dust off my own Skrell again.
