  1. For Serac- This is also a perfect example of what her voice generally sounds like. (Obligatory alt theme)- I might post things for other characters some other time.
  2. I try to separate myself as much as possible from my characters. I treat them like art projects. There is a bit of me in each of them of course, but having too much of my actual person in them doesn't feel right. It's easier and more fun when I can separate myself. Some examples: Serac- bigger chunks of myself than usual but ultimately very different. Very fun to play as for whatever reason and stuck the most. The biggest part of "me" there is her musical background, though she is a lot better at it than I am IC-ly. Agnes Hoxton (previously Kiraly) - A completely different person. There really isn't much of me in her at all. She has archetypes and concepts I personally find interesting though, and it stuck for a while. Sedna- Same deal. Mannerisms may be sort of similar but ultimately a very different person. Clementine Walsh - Extremely different. Someone I'd probably find annoying myself but fun to play as. Autumn Willard (if you even remember that character)- Someone I'd dislike most likely, but again fun to play as. A misguided "bad person".
  3. Name: Serac Age: 22 Gender: Female Race: Slime People Blood Type: Water General Occupational Roles: Mining/Supply, Engineering, Medical, rarely Science and Security (minor training) Biography: File Search for: Serac File Found! Retrieving data… Serac was born under unknown circumstances and moved to the ice colony Vixia-5 around the age of 7. She politely refused to speak of her years before that, and has claimed to have forgotten the vast majority anyhow. While this information may have potential use, it hasn’t been deemed necessary at this time. The planet itself is mostly populated around the equator, with harshly uninhabitable outlands closer to the poles. There is also known to be a large presence of USSP outcasts colonizing it, and Minor NanoTrasen presence has been established there as well, due to the potential of its resources. When subject Serac initially relocated there, she was taken in by a group she describes as “a cross between luddites and the old Earth Eskimos”. After some time she was properly given up for adoption by said group. She expressed that she never really connected with any of them, and would spend more time wandering the small nearby city on her own. She was quite fond of visiting one place in particular; a small, humble music shop run and owned by an aging man. She spent hours upon hours doodling on the instruments there, trying to figure them out. Some days she’d sit and watch the owner work on instruments in complete silence, almost entranced by it. After some time, the owner adopted Serac and raised her as his own. She quickly latched onto the guitar and piano, and was given lessons by her father. He also passed down what Luthier knowledge he could to her, spending hours teaching her his crafts. Due to her proclivity to be more mechanical, she was enrolled in a local school that focused on mining and engineering trades. She expressed herself that she was always more hands on, and was fond of watching things come apart and be reassembled. She was always interested in what went on under the hood of things as it were, and got into trouble a few times due to her curiosity. Nonetheless she seems to have been a decent enough student to earn her certificates. Near the end of her 18th year, her father passed away. He had closed his shop, and left her an old house he used to own. She was aimless for a while, until she discovered some ads for open positions with NanoTrasen a few years later. She was sent to the NSS Cyberiad with initial assignments in Mining and Engineering soon after. More details can be found in other records. --End data. Qualifications: Trade-schooling based around Engineering and Mining from the ages of 8 - 19. Subject displayed obvious natural grasps of medicinal procedures and was granted NT training for practical on-station medicine and surgery. Trained on and off station in Security by officer Sophia Bloppop (Deceased). Shifts have been granted to the subject if they wish to sign up for them. Granted minor access to research department work given this subject’s technical proclivities. Options are open if subject wishes to take them. Employment Records: Instrument shop clerk, Luthier apprenticeship, studied Mining and basic Engineering trades under a small trade school with hands on experience in the former. Awarded two medals of Distinguished Conduct for esteemed medical practice, going above and beyond the call. Awarded a medal of Distinguished Conduct for exceptional engineering work and crewmember rescue. Security Records: One account of grand theft, bail paid by a relative and pardoned by Central Command officials. Allegedly murdered a possible crewmember in cold blood, but insufficient evidence has come forward to prove it. Unconfirmed questionable ties with the USSP. Deemed to be at present a non issue, but worth noting. Medical Records: Minor alcohol abuse has been noted to have taken place during subject's mid-teen years. Testing and analysis shows this was relatively minor and has since ceased to be an issue, though it may be wise to monitor subject's alcohol intake at times. Personnel Photo (Appearance text): "She stands at 5'7", with an upright yet reserved posture. Her overall demeanor is quite chilly and pessimistic, congruent with her usual attitude. Her eyes seem to cast a cold glare most of the time, making her general aura frozen and icy. Her hair forms jagged hooks and strands, looking somewhat icicle-like. Her voice sounds arid and sort of hushed, yet still present. Her left palm has a sort of circular insignia tattooed onto it. A lightish-blue ring garnished by a small blue thread inside a glass tube rests on her left ring finger." Other Notes: She has recently become an avid member of a burgeoning group known as the Bardic Union. They seem to be focused on the spreading of cultures and art through music, though they also tend to be somewhat reclusive. Her father was known to have heavy ties with the USSP in the past, and was later cast out. Though a non-issue, the lack of information along with how said relations to other similar individuals on Vixia-5 affected Serac may or may not be concerning, and is worth noting.
  4. When a slime says they have a um... flavor. They don't actually taste like that. It's just the player being a weirdo. Thankfully this is kind of a meme and in my experience people don't take slimes having... actual flavors seriously. And the ones that do... well, I tend to avoid them so I dunno. As far as canonical 'taste' goes? What Evadable and Mira have said mixed with battery acid.
  5. Well, I think it's worth noting that if you go through the guy's channel you'll find he's pretty damn far from anything 'right-wing' or 'alt-right' or whatever. He even says in one of his videos he was supportive of Sanders during the recent U.S. election cycle. I don't think an 'alt-right', 'neo-nazi' or whatever would pull for Bernie Sanders to be a world leader. Politics in general these days are stress inducing and cancerous as hell, and I see this guy as someone who just wants to throw his two cents into the ring and at the same time take the piss a bit to make it humorous and maybe even help prove his points. I generally try to stay out of politics and such. However, I personally find governments being able to arrest and imprison people for some dumb dark humor you could just ignore pretty terrifying. Sure the joke is a bit extreme, you don't have to find it funny or think it was appropriate or whatever. But the dude is obviously just taking the piss, you can discourage the joke and its taste but we shouldn't be rounding people up and arresting them for saying the wrong thing. That's no better than what basically every shitty dictator in history has done. Anyway that's my two cents, for whatever it's worth.

    I've definitely seen you around a few times before. Welcome to the madhouse.
  7. That is amazing, I'm honored you took the time to do that. The crowbar is a nice touch :)

    Hey there

    Pleasure :) I'd be honored if you drew her.

    Hey there

    Well, I didn't know this sort of thing existed until recently, so I figured I could make a 'formal' hello I guess. I've been playing on this server for a while now, almost a year. Pretty much just as long as I've been playing SS13; a bit late but, here it is. I have too many characters for my own good, but I have a few who have stuck I enjoy the most. Used to mainly play as Agnes Kiraly and Clementine Walsh ages ago, for those that remember. Nowadays I mainly play as Serac, which makes this introduction either flattering or damning depending on who is reading I guess. I've tried a little bit of everything, but I guess you could say my strengths are in Medbay and Engineering. Sometimes I play security as Reishi or Adrianna Tucker, but I'm not very good at it by any stretch. I also thoroughly enjoy Xenobiology, though I rarely play science. I enjoy this server quite a bit, it's had its ups and downs but I always end up coming back. The community is pretty friendly and my experiences with the admins have been overall quite positive. I try my best at whatever job I do, most of my learning has come from screwing up or watching others. Anyway, yeah. Hi there.
