Valkrae's Tajara Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Valkrae

Character Names: Robert Dalton, Shiela Maldin, Marcus Armstrong, VALKYRIE, Nazai'i Uzeekus, August Taylor.

How long have you been playing on Aurora: Four Months

Species you are applying to play: Tajaran.

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Diona exempt): Most likely a dark, ashen, gray. Think the way Ana Issek looks.

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

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 enjoy the Tajaran culture, and love the lore written for it. I love reading about their history, and seeing them played. I feel as if I can add a new perspective on the history, as it seems to me that most Tajaran could care less what happens to Adhomhai.(Most likely butchered the spelling.)

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: First of all, They are walking cats. Second of all, The majority of Humans are from democratically run governments, Tajarans are emerging from a monarchy, into a socialist government. Thirdly, entirely different hormonal and societal taboos and mannerisms.

Why does this species in particular hold your interest? The socialist government for one. I enjoy roleplaying characters from socialist or communist governments. There are many different ways I can RP this race, and I would very much enjoy to RP them all.


Character Name: Kihir S'Rraha

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

Kihir was born on Adhomhai, in one of the agrarian regions. However, his parents promptly left the planet after Kihir was born. They joined up with a trading flotilla, travelling between star systems. Kihir was raised around a variety of races, and he adapted easily to the surrounding. His parents, however, didn't adapt as well as he did. They, who had been raised on the rural plains of Adhomhai, couldn't as easily adapt to the high-tech environment that they were in. His mother and father were employed as Cargo Technicians, mostly used to carry crates back and forth between the shuttles and wherever they are needed. Kihir adapted well to his surroundings, growing into a leadership position amongst the youth of the flotilla. Once they reached a mature age, The group left the flotilla, at the directive of Kihir.

Kihir and his band of friends were sent to Mars. On Mars, they quickly fell on the wrong side of the law. They began to get involved in drug dealing, and extortion, Kihir himself becoming an avid drug dealer and enforcer for a local gang. This all came to a tragic end, in a police bust on a drug deal. Kihir, his friends, and the gang he was working for all were arrested. Kihir was released shortly after, for ratting out the other operations of the gang. The police that arrested him sent the young Tajaran to a university nearby, as he had achieved his youth education on the flotilla. There, he received two degrees, A degree in Mechanical Engineering, and a degree in Physics. Shortly after graduating, the university set him up with a job with NanoTrasen , and he was immediately transferred to the NSS Aurora.

What do you like about this character? He's got a criminal background, and I intend to keep that criminal activity going on the server. That may be through coordinating with chemists to manufacture drugs, and sell them to crewmembers, as this would create RP for nearly all sections of the ship. I also like his domineering personality, which may cause him to bully other crewmembers into doing as he pleases.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

I wouldn't give myself a numerical rating. If I had too, I'd give myself a solid 8/10. I can keep to a character concept, but two issues I have is playing to win without realizing, and having compassion on characters that I shouldn't have compassion on. I do these things without realizing them, and have been taking steps in order to combat this, and eradicate them completely.


Notes: Time for a bad joke: Meowtro 2033.
