Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: NebulaFlare

Character Names: Rose Watson / Hawk Silverstone / Lori Alvarez / Angelo Keratolli / ATHENA / SCARLET / Karima Mo'Taki / Crystal Westfall / Valary Field / Demitri Rota

How long have you been playing on Aurora: I can't really give a good answer. I've been with the aurora community for quite some time, and have just recently returned from a very long haitus.

Species you are applying to play: Tajaran

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): KArima was gray, but with the new color schemes she will either be more of a grayish-brown, or calico.

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:

Karima Mo'Taki was a character of mine from long ago, and apparently I never had her application remade here for Aurora. Tajaran have a very interesting history, one that will involve conflicts of the modern civilization of these alien people (humans) and the respect of an artistically hidden culture. It'll be fun to have my roboticist Tajaran again, a young Tajaran woman trying to find her place in a highly advanced society. She's someone who is easily timid and equally shy, and she's going to struggle trying to make a stand for herself in this strange new world.

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

Tajaran in general, or at the very least the Hharar, are not ones to stand up for themselves. They have a very tight-knit clan system, with high respect to family. Such a system is easily missed by other species. Like other alien races, they are the underdog in human supremacy.

Why does this species in particular hold your interest?

I've always rooted for the underdog, and tajarans are very much that. They're picked on by humans, and even if they were liberated from their noble class, it's arguable if their quality of life had gone for the better or not. Their culture is mostly lost and destroyed through human interference, and they've been thrown into a fast paced world.


Character Name: Karima Mo'Taki

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

Karima Mo'taki grew up in a fairly modernized city of Adhomai, born into the Hharar clan. Her immediate family consisted of her father, mother, uncle, grandmother, and five other siblings, with Karima herself being the second eldest. While her family were not poor, they were not rich either. But they made do with what they had, the parents sending their children to public schools to receive education. Karima worked two jobs, the first being her family's restaurant (situated close to the harbor docks) and the second as an apprentice mechanic. While the second job offered little pay, it provided her with valuable experience.

Karima gained a scholarship to study mechatronics at an accredited college, and her parents urged her to take the opportunity. She completed her degree in robotics, mainly in artificial intelligence programming. She was accepted to work for NanoTrasen, and would have to learn to assert herself - which was not easy for a timid and shy Tajaran. Her first AI program was SCARLET, but NanoTrasen deemed it a malfunction and terminated it. Desperate to prove herself and eager to fix her mistake, she created ATHENA, which was the saving grace in her career.

What do you like about this character?

Karima Mo'Taki is sweet and lovable. While she is very shy and timid, and has a difficult time standing up for herself, she is very protective of close friends, and will go to great lengths to help them out. She can easily get pushed around by her coworkers, but she is learning when to put her foot down and be taken seriously. People can take advantage of her kindness as Karima prefers to avoid confrontation than provoke it. However, she's not to be taken lightly, and will fight tooth and nail - er, claw - to prove she can do her job as a respected, intelligent Tajaran.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

I consider myself decent, and I hope I can pull off a Tajaran that fits in Aurora.
