How long have you been playing on Aurora: ~149 days as of when this was posted.

Species you are applying to play: Skrell

What color do you plan on making your first alien character (Dionaea & IPCs exempt): #FF00FF, which produces a much more pleasing colour of #FFD7FF in game.

Have you read our lore section's page on this species?: Yesh.

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 flipped a coin. Basically, I had wanted to play organics again, but still wanted to play something other than humans. It was down to diona or skrell, and I flipped a quarter to decide. The coin chose skrell.

Identify what makes role-playing this species different than role-playing a Human: A few things come to mind. One, their diet is herbivorous, so they have to be more careful around food to ensure it doesn't contain meat. Two, they have an entirely different view of reproduction than most humans. Three, they convey their emotions using sounds that are outside a human's range of hearing, leading to many humans believing that they do not have emotions. I am particularly interested in exploring the last one more.

Why does this species in particular hold your interest? Of all the sapient species that occur in science fiction, aquatic, plantlike, and synthetic ones are always my favourite. I generally play those species in whatever games I can, and would love to continue that in this corner of space.

Character Name: Lejorei Zhareiu

Please provide a short backstory for this character, approximately 2 paragraphs Lejorei was born with an unexpected number of siblings, each one significantly straining their parent's attention and finances. Due to this, they were frequently left unattended, with very little entertainment outside of schooling. Lejorei solved this problem by becoming a troublemaker.

For much of their early life, Lejorei Zhareiu would get into trouble wherever they could. Whether it be playing elabourate pranks on their peers, or entering into restricted areas, Lejorei could usually be found doing something they weren't supposed to do. Eventually, however, they overestimated their abilities, and attempted to climb to the roof of a factory - skrell being notably better at swimming than climbing - and they fell off partway up. Their arm didn't.

With an absent arm severely limiting their troublemaking abilities, and perhaps with wisdom gained from the event, Lejorei began to focus more on their studies, and focused their talents towards the field of engineering. Eventually, they became informed of employment opportunities with NanoTrasen, and were hired soon after completion of their education. After several years of working on NanoTrasen ships, they were transferred over to the NSS Aurora.

What do you like about this character? Well, it is rather difficult to judge what I like or dislike about a character that I haven't played at all yet. One thing that I do like, though is that they are very risk-averse due to the accident with their arm, something which I see many engineers lacking.

How would you rate your role-playing ability? Constantly improving, is the only thing I can say. I judge myself too harshly to rate myself accurately.

Notes: Squishy! I would appreciate feedback on this application; if it is terrible, I will rewrite it.
