MFalco's Vaurca Whitelist Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: MFalco

Character Names: Rocco Butterfill (Medical Resident), Bo Butterfill (Janitor), Jax Butterfill (Miner), Shawna Butterfill (Xenobotanist), Clanq (Medical Cyborg)

Species you are applying to play: Vaurca

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): Default Zo’ra Unbound (RGB 51, 0, 0)

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 read their lore and they seem like a very fun race to play. I understand that the lore will be/has changed, and I’m interested to see where it goes. I’m very new to roleplaying and SS13, and since Vaurca aren’t interacted with much by the rest of the population (usually out of hate/discrimination), and how their caste system is structured, it seemed like an easy way to get comfortable roleplaying and to learn more about the station and the people in it.

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

There are a few:

- They require phoron to breathe, and therefore must have an internal tank that they replenish by eating k’ois (which is the only thing they CAN eat)

- They aren’t well liked by the other races (with the exception of Unathi and the K’lax)

- They are very focused on one particular job/skillset, and very rarely have knowledge in other areas

- Their speech is difficult to understand, even with implants. This can be detrimental if they can’t clearly express what they want


Character Name: Ka’Akaix’Zed Zo’ra (Unbound Medical Resident)

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

A Black Number. Zed always knew this day would come, but not this soon. They weren’t ready to leave Paradise. The Virtual was perfect. Anything Zed wanted to do, they could. Total freedom and control over one’s world was everything Zed could have desired and more. To Descend was to lose that control. The Material is harsh and unforgiving, those living in it even more so. But the Hive comes first, and will always come first.

Zed has been sent to work on the Aurora in the medical department. Zed is not pleased at the prospect of working in such a bright, loud place filled with those that have nothing but contempt for them. Zed wishes nothing more than to return to the Virtual and their Paradise. But the Hive comes first, and will always come first.

For the Hive.

What do you like about this character?

I like how simple their goals are. They are there to do their job, and nothing more. It would give me the chance to really focus on what I’m doing so I can learn and get more comfortable with roleplaying and the game in general.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

I have never roleplayed anything before. It’s way out of my comfort zone, and I was always afraid of messing up and making a fool of myself. But my friend (shout out to Conspiir) has been very patient with me while I slowly learn and come out of my shell.


I never expected to have this much fun roleplaying. I’m still learning, but I’m excited and determined to continue my efforts. All of this is new to me, but this seems like a great place to be with great people. Thanks so much for reading my application, and I hope to hear from you all soon.

Falco's running himself rabid over here. He's going to give himself ulcers trying to get this right.

I can say that for someone that has never roleplayed before, he's got a firm grasp on what he needs to do. And while he's still learning mechanics, he's got actual written notes for how to work Medical based on what I've taught him. I believe him and his bug self shall be a great addition to bugbay MEDbay. Ahem.

Conspiir has been in Medical for a while, and has been teaching me alot about rping and the game in general. I figured that since I already have a couple characters in Medical and know at least a little more Bout it than the other departments, it would be easier to play my first alien race there. Thanks so much for replying!
