Yanoi LacroixSpecies: Fennec
Technomage science and mechanics (not a technomage, she's studying the science and technology behind them.)Quote:
"I only want
Mars..." and "Walk with me. Come along, come along, I don't have all day. Walk faster!"
"You see this device? It may look like an ordinary communicator, but I have twelve technomages on speed-dial. Do you really want to bother me?"How much experience do you have with role-playing? How much time have you spent on MUSHs/MUXs/etc.?
Been on MA RPG since January 2008, making characters and trying to get them in. Some approved, many in the holding tank. What is your character's personality?
Kind of grouchy. Something suitably cute will eventually drag out the young girl in her, and the irritably narrowed eyes will go wide and watery, and a tremendously gushy "Awwww..." will escape. This is often compensated for with a panicked cough and shifty look about her to make sure no one noticed.
She's very studious, and pays close attention to detail in everything, especially instructions.What things does s/he like?
She likes tinkering with things, especially in the company of Chez and the Doc. (She's also grown fond of them, but don't tell Chez...)
She loves science fiction novels and other science fiction materials, though the novels are her favorites.
She likes compliments, especially if they include the word "cute." She will act like it annoys her, but her smile tends to blow her cover.
Warm weather pleases her.
She's got a weakness for crass humor. Too much will have her tittering like a little girl who's had far too much sugar.Dislike?
People bothering her. She'll tolerate some, but too much of it will make her get up and walk away. It is recommended that one does not persist at this point, otherwise they may get kicked in the knee or something.
it when people make fun of her very large ears. Also, incredibly loud noises bother her, as does cold weather.What are the strong points of your character?
She's very clever and smart. A bit of a child prodigy, even.Weak points?
kind of accident prone. Short temper. Too many silly jokes could potentially have her floored with laughter. She has some self-esteem problems.Name one thing your character would never do and why.
Perform an experiment which she knows will harm others. She's not really all that worried about blowing herself up, but she doesn't want to take anyone else with her.How does s/he interact with others?
At first she's quite terse, almost rude. But if you soften her up, she can be sweet, and even nice. What are their abilities, hobbies, things they're good at?
tinkering is a skill she's acquired, and she is good at following instructions. She's a brilliant student.MENTION if they carry some sort of weapon.
*takes a deep breath*
Okay, I haven't thought of anything specific yet. Perhaps a taser, for one.Give an example description of your character.
Yanoi is short and lean, just over 4' tall. She is a Fennec fox with very short blond fur, and of course very
large ears. Her blond hair is about shoulder length and she keeps it in a very tight braid. She doesn't want it getting in her way. She has dark brown eyes and black whiskers. Her breasts are small, but give her a distinctly feminine shape. Please note that touching them will earn you a long stay in medical, possibly with a large number of electrical burns. Her bushy tail is blond with a black tip, and is usually moving slowly from one side to the other. It tends to puff up in an amusing manner when she's irritated, and really puffs up if she's startled. Yanoi has distinct scars on her right arm, two from deep gashes caused by an accidental explosion, one of which is on her shoulder, the other about midway between her elbow and shoulder. She has one more scar on the same arm caused by a suicide attempt shortly afterward. This scar travels from her wrist near her thumb to her elbow.
Yanoi frequently wears automatically darkening goggles or small reading glasses that perch on her muzzle. Also in her usual wardrobe is a white shirt that makes her look remarkably like a sushi chef. She also wears black pants that are fairly snug. They're tight enough that males pay attention when she bends over, but loose enough that she can get out of them fast when they catch fire.
Under this, she has been known to wear pink lacy undies, and on occasion when she has caught fire, or something similar has happened, these lacy little things have been viewed by the public, much to the little fox's dismay and abject humiliation.
However, when Yanoi goes swimming, as she has been known to do when she thinks she'll be alone, she wears a skimpy black bathing suit that exposes her belly.
On rare occasions, she can be seen wearing casual clothes, like shorts and a midriff-baring shirt. This is a good thing. What qualities or traits does your character have that would be useful to the Mars Academy currently, or in the future when it becomes a colony? This includes skills, and for those that would need to apply, qualifications.
Yanoi is a genius scientist, and is exceedingly careful now, due to an accident in her past. If not as a leader, she works great under others.Why does your character want to be at the Academy rather than at another Academy, or some other location?
Yanoi came to Mars with the Doc as his assistant. (Chez calls her his minion) Wanting to continue her education, the little genius enrolled at the academy. She's decided to pursue the field of technomage science, wanting to understand and improve the abilities of technomages.What goals does your character have for the future?
She's aiming high. She wants to be an important scientist on Mars. (better than wanting to be dead, though. (see history)) She wants to improve the science behind the technomage technology, making it more efficient and more powerful, earning her a reputation on a level with great innovators in the past. It's a lofty goal, but she feels that it's something that she can accomplish.What is your characters nature and thoughts on others of his/her species?
Yanoi was proud of her species for a long time, but when she was cast out of her band, this made her question her opinions of everyone.What is his or her view on other species?
Yanoi is indifferent to a person's species for the most part. There are small differences, but that doesn't really change the way she looks at everyone.Please answer the following in a couple paragraphs: What is your character's history? Who is or was your characters family? What were the important events of your characters past? What kind of life did they have before they arrived at the academy?
Yanoi Lacroix was the only child of a pair of Fennecs, and lived in the desert. She was discovered to be a genius, and excelled in her schooling. She loved science, and they were glad to let her do all the experiments she wanted. Then one day, when she was showing off one of her experiments, something went wrong. The resulting explosion killed her parents and wounded her and several others. Her current theory is that a fuel leak was exposed to a heat source with led to the accident. She doesn't even remember what the experiment was about, since it was unimportant to her compared with the loss of her parents. This all happened when she was about the age of ten. She was promptly cast out by the rest of the society and left to fend for herself.
Badly wounded at the time and unable to use her right arm due to two severe gashes, she wandered about the desert helplessly. She came to a town after about a week and a half, starving and feverish, completely wrought with grief and guilt. She found an old scythe out behind one of the buildings in the town, and attempted to cut her wrist on her useless right arm. Weak and dizzy from hunger, thirst, and her other injuries, she slipped, creating a deep gash that ran diagonally from her wrist near her thumb to her elbow. It was incredibly painful, but it accomplished the task she had set out to do.
A Fishing cat mounty discovered her shortly afterward, lying in a pool of her own blood, unconscious. He quickly bandaged her wounds with torn off strips of clothing and brought her to the nearest medical facility. It was touch and go for a long time, and she even had to be resuscitated a couple of times, but they managed to bring her through. When she finally recovered enough, she told them all why she was in such bad shape and why she had tried to kill herself.
The Doc, the mounty who had found her, took her in and treated her as the daughter he had never had. She soon proved to be a great assistant, and was often helping him with his lab work.
Yanoi received extensive counseling, and still sees a therapist frequently at the academy. Since she was rescued and taken in by the Doc, who is an avid scientist and inventor (and so forth) she found herself close to science at all times. She had always loved it, and was eventually drawn back in.
Yanoi was privately tutored, and finished her schooling very early. About this time, the Doc, as she grew to call him, received an offer to work at Mars Academy. He accepted, and the family (Doc, nephew Chez, and Yanoi) moved to Mars. Wanting to further her education, Yanoi enrolled at the academy a year early with a physics major. As she continued her education, she took an interest in technomage science and mechanics and changed her major accordingly.If you're applying for a character that's been at the academy a while, what's happened to them at the academy? How have they spent their time here?
Yanoi has excelled in her classes, and is well on her way to earning her degree. Due to her field of study, she's quite familiar with many of the technomages on campus, and has come to tolerate some of their jokes, and has actually become less of a target for them to torment. Or, maybe they're just running out of ideas to use on her. In any case, they're on much better terms than they had been in the past, and they only annoy her on occasion, as opposed to constantly.
She has been seeing a counselor regularly, and has made a lot of progress on her self-esteem, but still has issues.
