Thealienhasheightenedsenses's IPC Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Thealienhasheightenedsenses

Character Names: Babel (as a pAI and cyborg), Sarnai Toqto'a

How long have you been playing on Aurora: Not too long, maybe but a few days, but I've played on other heavy roleplay servers for quite a long time.

Species you are applying to play: IPC

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

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: No, but I have a lot of experience on other servers playing as an IPC.

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 really enjoy the thought of being a non organic character, as AI characters like Tycho from Marathon and SHODAN from System Shock are very interesting, and would be a unique experience to play as.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: You're bereft of mortal limits such as age, hunger, thirst, and are cold and logical. Most of the time! Most of the time being if they're not corrupt or rampant. The thought of playing as a rampant android is also very interesting. Though, I'd mostly restrict it to if I was a traitor.

Why does this species in particular hold your interest? I love computers and information! That, and many AI characters in video games, movies, and literature have had a lasting effect on me.

Character Name: Babel

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs A highly advanced and particularly intelligent android built to construct space elevators, hence the name "Babel". Unfortunately, the whole space elevator project never quite took off. With the space elevator company in bankruptcy, they sold the whole lot of their specially designed robots to Nanotrasen for a bargain price of 299 credits each. Babel was shipped to the Aurora to find work wherever he was needed. His personality module is slightly degraded in the "word filtering" sector, so he's often seen as insensitive and a blabbermouth. His personality module can, however, be adjusted with a screwdriver. The adjustable settings are: Sarcasm, Honesty, Constraint, and numerous dials for the intensities of various simulated emotions. As much as he'd like to, he is not programmed to swear.

What do you like about this character? The fact that he's a snarky android, of course! Other than that, I haven't actually played him, so I don't know a whole lot about what he would act like in a given situation.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? Strong, but occasionally I slip up, especially if I'm playing a character with a certain accent.

Notes: I'll read any topics or answer any questions you would like me to.

Yerp, you'll have to find a clique and get yourself known. Definitely put the link of the application into LOOC or OOC if you want after the round.

Don't get into the habit of spamming it, though.

Cudos to OP for sticking with this so long. I wouldn't see a problem with accepting this as long as, (A little niggly detail) you said that you would play a corrupt/malf Posiintelligence? I know you said 'mostly,' but I need to make sure that you don't plan on playing a corrupt IPC unless you are antagonist. Well, not corrupted to the point that you wouldn't get hired by NanoTrasen.
