About The Species

What alien species are you applying for?

How does playing an alien differ from playing a human, and how will you represent this ingame?
Differences in culture and demeanor play a big part in how certain races play compared to others, as well as their speech patterns and general attitudes towards certain behaviors. You need to place yourself into a different creative field when playing as an alien, as you have to touch around and feel out exactly what makes the specific species tick in the ways that they should. What are their personal motivations that push them forward as opposed to a human? Questions like these push you to create something new and much more different than a human. In order to represent this, it would be commonplace to simply explore Unathi history in a way that would further flesh out the lines of what makes an Unathi an Unathi, and what sorts of ordeals, hardships and advantages they have over other races when it comes to economic, social, educational and moral values. I would explore these ideas with intent on improving not only myself as a roleplayer but on improving the server with the added cultural and economic view that my character would bring to the table historically and culturally.

Why do you want to play as the alien species?
Traditionally, on Baystation servers, I used to connect with Unathi quite a bit when it came to roleplay and theme. Generally, through my interactions on Persistence with the Unathi lore, I find it quite a bit easier to connect with than even the old Unathi lore that I am used to, and thusly would like to attempt pushing forward with the Unathi lore and attempting to figure out my place in its web that's being woven into the Frontier as Frontier Unathi culture.

What are some example names for the alien species?
V'ssuthi Jiila, Hiikk Buulisk, Karriis Ulaen

Summarize what you know about the species.
The Unathi are a proud people whose history revolves around their economic growth, growing from their humble beginnings to the trading empire they have become today. Slow to trust, but viciously loyal when they do. Focused on furthering their self gain and economic state has lead the species to not form a traditional military, but to hire together bands of armies from various joint trading companies into the main Unathi Coalition army. This promotes further relations between trading colonies and even further promotes economic growth - something the Unathi are all about.

Provide an example character bio for your xeno character.

V'ssuthi Jiila was borne to two mercenaries met together in the Coalition, forced to live a nomadic life as her parents were traded back and forth betwixt military troupes and bands. In all fairness, life on the military escort ships was pretty cushy, and all things considered, she was fairly spoiled in the grande scheme of things. Every new ship meant new foods to try, new drinks to steal and more folks to bargain with. Despite only being schooled by her militaristic parents, her demeanor and snarky attitude never wavered. All the way through to reaching her adulthood, she was enlisted voluntarily by her parents into the merchant convoy military, yet she still felt something to be desired. The people she was guarding were much more interesting - the folks with the money, the trade, the alcohol, the food. It was exhilarating, the thought of starting something that was hers - something that could make her dough and let her ride on the coattails of someone else's success! When the Frontier came to be, she hopped on the opportunity to push herself through the gate, promising her parents that she'd made a great Head of Security somewhere. Of course, she had other motives.
This has my official vote of approval.
