Valkrae's IPC Application

Recommended Posts

BYOND Key: Valkrae

Character Names: Robert Dalton, Nazai'i Uzeekus, Kihir S'raha, S'rasuna Fianarr, and others.

How long have you been playing on Aurora: Around five months or so.

Species you are applying to play: IPC

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

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: I would have, if there was one.

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 wish to play IPC because I enjoy roleplaying as an emotionless robot, that is uncapable of human emotion. I've seen various IPC characters, and I wish to join their ranks as someone who can roleplay an IPC. I've seen some very interesting scenarios happen from people playing as an IPC.

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

For one, They are inorganic robots. Secondly, they cannot feel emotions. They are emotionless, and can be quite different from Humanity. This can lead to various situations in RP that would be particularly fun to be apart of.

Why does this species in particular hold your interest?

They are machines. I've always loved roleplaying as emotionless, cold, and metallic AI and robots. HK-47 is a prime example of something that I'd love to roleplay as. IPC's are just plain interesting, and I'd love to play one.


Character Name: VALKYRIE

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

VALKYRIE looked around, seeing the burnt out and bullet-torn ruins of the ship it once protected. It looked down, seeing the very commander that had once ordered it around. VALKYRIE could not feel emotions, but he had one objective still left in its mind. Eliminate the Pirates that had infiltrated your home. VALKYRIE reached down, and grabbed the still charged energy pistol of its former Commander. It made its way through the halls, watching the burning ruins of the ship corridors. Bodies resided in every hall, but VALKYRIE kept moving. It made its way to the last location of pirates. It spotted two, and easily dispatched them with it's energy pistol.

"Sentencing for murder: Death by execution." Its robotic voice spoke, breaking the eerie silence of the dying ship. It kept maneuvering, onto into the depths of the ship. The only sounds that broke the death of the ship, were the quick shots of VALKYRIE, administering justice.


"Sir, We've recovered a derelict ship, a trade vessel." A man spoke, standing before a desk, speaking to a rather large man, sitting in a chair.

"What was on the ship?" The larger man asked, lighting the cigar in his mouth.

"Corpses sir, Lots of them. It seemed that pirates infiltrated the ship, and a large gunfight ensued. There was only one survivor, if you could call it a survivor."

The larger man leaned in, and asked. "What do you mean?"

"Sir, an IPC, designation: VALKYRIE. It was the lone survivor of the ships crew, and was a resident Security Officer of the vessel." He nodded.

The larger man nodded as well. "Who is his owner?"

The other man shook his head. "He's a free IPC, and has expressed employment with NanoTrasen, as a Security Officer."

"Run a diagnostics, and background check. If he passes, send him to the NSS Aurora, they always need extra hands." The larger man nodded, dismissing the other with a wave of his hand.

What do you like about this character?

I like that he is a cold, calculating, law-machine. He takes the law into black and white means, and follows regulations to the letter. He will obey any order given to him by his commanding officers, regardless of what it is. He is a soldier, first. He also makes various interesting comments on each and every action he does.

How would you rate your role-playing ability?

I wouldn't really give it a rating, really. I'm pretty decent at roleplaying, but I feel as if I don't separate myself from my characters enough, and I play to win in certain game modes, which is something I'm striving to work on.


Some of you may recognize this as the borg I play occasionally. It's essentially the same character.

I recognize it.

I remember J.A.U.N.T. and VALKYRIE tearing shit up as secborgbros.

+1, I'm perfectly confident of Valkrae's ability to RP synthetics and I'd like to see more from a more free-thinking kind of character. I endorse this.
