Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Lordfeather

Character Names: George Beresford, William Beresford, Lawrence Chester, William Cathcart, Arthur Grant

Species you are applying to play: Tajara

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): Blue-Grey

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’ve played several Tajara characters on different servers and have always found the peak of my roleplaying enjoyment in playing them due to the simple fact that they are not human. They provide an entire new world to create and develop a character who doesn’t slot into a typical human culture.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: Tajara have claws which deal a lot more damage than humans fists, this also means however that they must wear modified gloves and shoes. They have their own language(s) that other species cannot understand. They can see much better in the dark than humans. Their fur means that it’s easier for them to stay warm but wearing too many layers can result in overheating. The different Tajaran races have different physical qualities and tend to go into certain fields depending on their race.


Character Name: Tsemir Von Khei

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs Tsemir, aged 38, was born in Nal’Tor, his parents labourers, primarily aiding in construction projects throughout the Capital. For the most part, Tsemir was left to his own devices due to his parent’s busy work schedule, despite this, he looked up to his father and saw him as his hero, the man who could build and construct almost anything! Of course, this wasn’t as true as he believed, but the fantasy helped him deal with the loneliness he faced daily. When his father had time, he’d be showing Tsemir how to build, starting small with furniture items, before moving onto some more complex things such as small engines. As Tsemir continued to grow, so did his interest in engineering, he followed in his fathers footsteps, starting off with small jobs for family friends, before working on his grander projects. His enthusiasm paid off for him after many years of hard work as a junior non-combat engineer within the Republic’s army, the Army CE referred him to a NT recruiter to offered him the chance to study engineering at Hongsun Park Engineering Institute. During his stay there, he interacted with a multitude of students with German ancestry, as a way of fitting in, he began to converge his attitudes and culture slightly, taking a liking to beer and legally altering his name to include the German pre-fix “Von”. After university, Tsemir was recruited into NT, where his journey led him to the Aurora.

What do you like about this character? The large blank slate he has ahead of him, he’s a young Tajara who has only just recently joined onto the NT program, he’s ready to experience new things, meet new people and become part of something absolutely incredible, in his mind, he views NT as a fantastic opportunity to expand his creative abilities within a professional engineering environment. His blank slate also allows him to expand with his career choice, either staying as an engineer, or moving onto things such as atmospherics through IC learning. He also has a close connection to his family on Ahdomai, giving him multiple reasons to be interacting with the civil war as it develops, allowing for a vast array of roleplaying opportunities.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? On a scale of 1-10, I’d rate myself at an 8. I’ve been playing SS13 for around 5 years and still have a lot to learn not just about the game itself, but also in how to roleplay.

William is a total legend character. I loved roleplaying with this dude and all of his characters, but William really stood out for me. Anyway, long story short this guy is really good at roleplaying and I would have no problems seeing him with a Tajara whitelist.

It's not a bad application and you have positive feedback. There's no red flags and your playtime is clearly present. There were quite a few grammatical issues, but so long as it isn't so bad as to indicate you wouldn't be able to roleplay in English, I give it a pass. Not really much to say here in the way of constructive criticism. Application approved.
