[Accepted] sdtwbaj IPC application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: sdtwbaj and/or Ayrism (in the process of switching)

Character Names: Marcus Halloway, Lolly Vause

Species you are applying to play: IPC

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): N/A

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:

IPCs have a certain mystique to them, and are far more open personality wise. The amount of freedom one gets when they play IPC is incredible, as far as character building goes. Personality could be anything from a logical, programmed utility droid to a flamboyant entertainment bot. So that's why I want to play as IPC, I suppose. The open-ended freedom that comes from it, the ability to take the character in far more directions than can by a mere organic.

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

Well, IPCs are robots. They don't necessarily have feelings, or even understand the concept of feelings. They don't know pain as humans do, but they also have a more expansive mind than any human. A data bank that can access many things, complete incredible tasks in very small amounts of time. They can see the world in shades of ones and zeroes, or as a sentient, moral being. Being organic versus being machine, being repaired by bandages or by wires. Seeing the world in a different light, through the cold eyes of a powerful calculator.



Character Name: Dreidos

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

Dreidos was produced in 2457 by the Yangtze-Kien Research Company, as part of prototyping for a new design of baseline dedicated to security and protection. Over the course of six months, Dreidos was part of a group of six droids - the other five being Phobos, Aeros, Phylos, Skelos, and Lohkos - that partook in various test courses and firmware changes, to be designed as internal security droids to supplement organic forces, being given a mentality of taking shots that organics wouldn't have to. The unit is designed as a utilon-based artificial morality droid, with a rather cold, grounded demeanor and modified security cyborg subroutines, to give it a certain way of approaching situations that it would come across in law enforcement.

Dreidos and it's five companions, post testing, ended up as the production standard for the line. Ultimately, the company built approximately seven hundred security IPCs before being purchased as part of a merger with the larger Midway Positronic Corporation. Dreidos was sold during the pre-merger auction, and acquired by a small Tau Ceti based defense researcher, which was acquired by NanoTrasen shortly before the Aurora II was opened. After NanoTrasen probed the unit's data banks, and reviewed it's records, it figured that the IPC would be well served as an implement on the NSS Aurora II's team. The IPC was modified slightly, to be more in line with NanoTrasen's way, as well as less harsh and overbearing to the general people it would enocunter. Dreidos' personality was also modified, albeit rather haphazardly, to make it prioritize seeking a more diplomatic resolution, before resulting in force. Since the unit's personality was not overhauled very significantly, this manifests very strangely in the IPC. After all of the modifications, Dreidos was finalized and given a standard NanoTrasen security course. The unit assimilated the information nearly flawlessly, and was placed aboard the station shortly after opening.

What do you like about this character?

It's an IPC that was built ground up for the single-minded purpose of security and defense, allowing it to have a rather robust, so to speak, personality attached to that.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

A good 8/10. I've been around the serious/high RP scenario for awhile now.


I hope my answers don't seem too bare, I'm just bad at coming up with fluff.
