[Denied] Asthmetheus' IPC Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Asthmetheus.

Character Names: John Campbell.

Species you are applying to play: Integrated Positronic Chassis, Baseline.

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

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 rather enjoy all things cybernetic, I grew up falling in love with star wars, and while Aliens are rather cool, I always enjoyed the Droids. Watching such things as Blade Runner, and I Robot just made it more so. I like to see cybernetic beings come to terms with being sentient, that they're not all just cybernetic slaves, some are by all definitions alive. I simply ask you though, do Toasters dream of Electric Sheep? Does this Unit have a Soul? There's plenty of ways one can play a cybernetic, from a fresh off the assembly line model, to a model that has been around the block a few times, and each and every way is exciting.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: There is something Magical about playing a cybernetic, especially one that is sentient and free. They don't exactly fit in anywhere, and most folks will still see them as nothing but tools. However, those Machines are capable of much more, why an IPC is a fresh slate, they have no racial history so to speak, as they were created, not born, they did not huddle around campfires humming songs to their children while hiding in caves from predators. They came to exist, and so it was. While one will never truly understand what passes between an Organics mind, they can think, and think, far longer than some can.


Character Name: J4-XO "Jax"

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs Unit Model J4-XO rolled off the assembly line with a batch of other Baseline IPC's. It was merely a normal shipment, this unit being sent here, this unit being sent there. However Unit J4-XO was sent to a Company in the Tau Ceti System, said Company has since foreclosed, but for the short time Unit J4 was there, he performed basic Secretarial duties, from fetching drinks, directing customers, and scheduling appointments and even keeping the offices clean. It wasn't until towards the end that Unit J4 was upgraded with a Positronic Brain, J4 suddenly developed sentience, he knew, he saw, he felt.

However still had to work for the company, and that he did, always curious however. When said Company ended up closing, all their assets were sold, him included, where he ended up being bought in a cheap auction, for pennies on the dollar. He passed through several hands, from a short stint as a Fry cook, to a nursing home aide, and an even smaller stint as a dog walker. These "Job's" changed with it seemed almost every passing day, until the fateful day he was purchased by NanoTrasen. The host of Odd-jobs beneath his belt ensured he'd fit in somewhere, and if not, he could always be sold again.

What do you like about this character? It's something new, it's been awhile since I had to get really indepth with a character backstory, since I'm more used to coming up with it as I go. But I see J4 as a new start, to try something I haven't really done before. He's a rather curious sort, always eager to learn new things, however he doesn't have a full grasp on Organic Norms, causing some confusion every now and again, as he tries to figure out if he's supposed to shake that Organics Hand, or proceed with the Bumping of the Fists.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? I wouldn't say I'm the best Roleplayer, but I have been Roleplaying since 2011 when I was introduced to a medium in which I could Flourish, I won't say the name as it has a bad reputation however. I'm quite suited with anything from short sentence posting, to full on paraposting. I've played many roles as well, from the antagonistic, to the deurotagonists.

Notes: Feel free to correct me on everything, I'm still relatively new to the SS13 Genre in a whole, and still learning as I go.

I apologize for the delay. I do bring some bad news, however. It seems you have only played on this server for less than a week. Your last seen date was October 27, six days after your first seen date. You also only have one character. With this in mind, I'm afraid I'm going to have to deny your application. Please spend some more time playing on the server to get a better feel for our universe, our characters, and our style.
