[Accepted] DaBurs Dionaea Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: DaBurs

Character Names:

Hugh Ellrich (Phoron Researcher)

Ka'Akaix'Hektu Zo'ra (Electrician)

David "The Bear" Voigt (Janitor)

Species you are applying to play: Dionaea

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): Exempt due to species.

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:

The Dionaea physiology and "culture" (or lack thereof) is extremely intriguing to me. The idea of truly being apart of something bigger than yourself, similar to the hivemind that are the bound Vaurca, is very appealing to me. I have also always had a high interest in plant-like species in any game, and the idea of being made up of various diona paired with a natural connection (and sometimes, tension) with the Skrell race could lead to some interesting roleplay. From what I understand, the Dionae are naturally passive. Being seen as a rather passive and harmless race instead of a claw or fang bearing one would make for a generally more relaxed roleplaying experience. Adding to this, a tip of the round was to apply for this interesting race if you have troubles with being an antagonist. A perfect fit for me.

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

Roleplaying a Dionaea will be a point of unknown for many people, confused by the mass of bushes they see walking before them. Being a highly intelligent race, it would be nice to roleplay these plant-like workers. A sense of natural curiosity that even rivals humanity's own curiosity is a staple of Dionaea-kind and that same intrigued curiosity mixed with your naturally expansive nature will have a Dionaea exploring around with all the possibilities in their field. Playing most races can have you feeling really rushed in life. Unknowing of your role, running around the station to put out fires constantly. With playing a Dionaea I feel like you'll have the chance to look around you, really take in what happens to the station and play as a calm observer.


Character Name: Prismatic Cosmos in the Starlight

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

Prismatic was originally something of a Dionaea diplomat, acting more as a gift to the Human-Skrell joint force - sent after the infamous power plant incident. Working as a faint voice of reason between the three species as they furthered their scientific research and communication with his race, Prismatic often traveled between the Diona craft and the vessels of the human and Skrell to relay further information and sometimes packages to these stations. However, one fatal incident aboard a Nanotrasen in-between shuttle would show Prismatic's inner worth as a cluster.

High air pressure caused by unknown tamperings and a remote signaller upon an air, and nitrous oxide canister being shipped cracked even the reinforced windows, and time would soon run short for those aboard.

Reacting as quickly as could be processed, and with the intent of keeping relations stable between all the races, Prismatic broke the already cracking window- sending the pressure levels to a safer level. The fibrous roots of Prismatic would rip and tear slowly as the vacuum of space tried to violently rip him, and the rest of the crew out into it. However, the Dionaea held strong- using himself as a block in the hold just long enough for a brave engineer to inflate a large wall of air to take his place. As crewmembers who had exposed to unfortunate amounts of N20 would describe it, in this moment of high pressure and nitrous oxide the Dionaea before them appeared to have shimmering and glowing roots. This clear hallucination of the drugged and pressurized crewmembers lead to the cluster of nymphs adopting the name he know identifies as. For the Dionaea's bravery and clear resistance to the harsh realities of being exposed to space, he would soon be offered an engineering job aboard the station.

What do you like about this character?

I like a character who can explore his own collectiveness, own personality and personalities, what makes up who and what he is. A Dionaea that perhaps, if he can help and learn of everyone different than himself, can in return learn more about himself in kind.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

I'm currently getting a grasp of how to be a better antagonist, but outside of that I enjoy roleplaying with fellow engineers on my Vaurca, and scientists on Hugh and for the most part the feelings are mutual. I would say outside of being an antagonist, I'm good on most fronts.
