Quote: “Who cares?!  Let’s just have fun!”, *Zap*“Another one bites the dust!”, “Ooh, what would happen if I do this?”, “I’m starting to really hate working with AIs!”

How much experience do you have with role-playing? How much time have you spent on MUSHs/MUXs/etc.? Been doing PBP RPing off and on for three years, been playing old school ADND for a little over five years, and new school D20 3.5 for a little over three.  Never played a social RP, and am looking forward to the experience.

What is your character's personality? As the above quote will show, Faryn is more fun loving than anything else, and unless it is interesting to him, (IE, anything to do with mechanics, computers, reading, physics, or battle simulations,) he loses focus quickly.  He is obsessed with physical fitness, computers, and drawing.  He sees everything he does as substandard, and thus is continually trying to better himself.  He wants to be a straight A student, but because of his short attention span, has trouble maintaining a low B average.  He only has to read something once or do it once to remember the fact or action for life, and thus aces most tests.  However, he tends to lose assignments, or just forget about them, dropping his grades.  His organization system, to some, seems like pure chaos, but he can find anything he looks for in the blink of an eye.  The rest of his life reflects this.  His clothing is eclectic, and a lot of the time rumpled, and he has to be reminded by his PDA to even brush his teeth.  He has a large vocabulary, but rarely uses it unless he knows the person can keep up, in an effort to fit in.  He is somewhat socially awkward, and has a small number of friends, but he knows those friends will be with him through thick and thin.  He has a hard time making new friends, and thus is having issues at the academy, having left all of his old friends back on Cyantia.

What things does s/he like? He loves problem solving, any form of engineering that he understands, learning, and physical activity.  His favorite food is Macaroni and Cheese, though he will try anything at least once, and will eat most everything edible put in front of him.  He loves experimenting with new combinations of food, and will eat most any of his concoctions.

Dislike? He abhors anything that he sees as work, hates squishy vegetables, and dislikes the rain, because he gets slightly depressed.  He dislikes homework, unless it involves problem solving, like advanced calculus.  He also hates anything that he must do that seems too easy for him, like having to drill basic algebra into his head after mastering calculus and trig.

What are the strong points of your character? He is continually trying to better himself, so he rarely makes the same mistakes twice.  He is highly intelligent, but doesn’t want to show it for fear of bullying or people laughing at him.  He is a self taught lift mechanic, and can fix the mechanical systems on most light lifts, but has trouble with the electronic components such as the shields or flight systems.  He is in the process of learning how to repair those as well, however.  He is very skilled with the construction and raising of technofamiliars, having helped his mother on several of her projects.  He wants his own, but is afraid that the technomages are the only ones that are allowed to have them.  He has the Boy Scout mentality of “Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it”, and gives everything he does his all, even if he “knows” it’s going to come out bad.

Weak points? Faryn is easily depressed, easily distracted, and socially awkward.  He sees everything he does as substandard, unless an overwhelming majority force it into his head that it was superior, as it usually is to everyone but himself.  He tends to obsess a little too much on any project he is working on, to the exclusion of all else, including eating.

Name one thing your character would never do and why. He would never give in to peer pressure or lose his cool in public.  It was drilled into his head from a very early age by his parents that to be a productive individual in society, he had to be his own person.  He values his freedom above all else, and if anybody tried to steer him in one direction or another that he didn’t want to go, especially his friends, he would make their life miserable.  He has also found that losing control of himself tends to have negative effects on everyone involved.  He’ll laugh and goof off, but he is slow to anger and extremely hard to insult.  He will not, however, stand insults towards other people.  He sees a kinship with anyone who is bullied or picked on regularly, and can be fiercely loyal to them, but he will see reason if they are trying to do something immoral or cruel.

How does s/he interact with others? Anybody that Faryn doesn’t know well will see him as an aloof, socially awkward mounty, one that seems to stick out in any major social event.  At least when they try to approach him.  He tends to stay on the sidelines, and not interact that much with others.  But he is a whole different person when it comes to his friends, or people he finds interesting.  He is outgoing, goofy, caring, and willing to do anything to protect his friends.  He is hard to get to be your friend, but once he is, he will literally fight to the death for you.  Overall, he is kind and friendly, and can be approached by others, provided they don’t do it in a way that could be seen by him to be insulting or mean.

What are their abilities, hobbies, things they're good at? As stated earlier, he is excellent at problem solving, can fix the mechanical systems on most light lifts, and is extremely proficient with computer systems.  He is a visual spatial thinker, meaning that he works best in silence when trying to fix complex engineering issues, and can easily visualize and test most mechanical setups without ever putting stylus to bookplate, running the tests in his head to work out the kinks.  He is a good shot, at least in laser tag, and can run with speed and endurance.  He is skilled with software design, having written all of the functions for his PDA himself, but is limited to mid level programs.  In his spare time, when he’s not goofing off or studying, he will come up with ideas for new lift designs and fiddles around with hardware design for computer systems.  He is also extremely interested in grav ball, laser tag, terran paintball, and fencing.  

MENTION if they carry some sort of weapon. He caries a ceramic bladed combat survival knife, with a blade about eight inches long, matte black.  It sheathes on his upper calf or belt, depending on what he is wearing.

Give an example description of your character.
Faryn is a seven foot four inch Siberian white tiger, well muscled but not buff.  He is usually straight faced, showing no expression, but it is not uncommon for him to break out into a grin or frown.  With dark grey eyes, and a stripe that seems to swallow them, he has a rather fierce face when frowning.  He almost always wears a pair of rather scuffed and worn, but still usable, black combat boots, mainly because they are comfortable.  He will always be found wearing functional and comfortable clothes, even to a dance or something of that sort.  The only exposed fur on his body when not in his trunks is on his face and tail.  Even in the dead of summer, he will not wear shorts, but he can occasionally be found to wear just a T shirt.  He has adopted the wolf style of wearing his off white hair long, and in a ponytail, hanging to about mid back.
There are two major outfits that Faryn wears, depending on what he is doing.  When in school, he usually wears a pair of black cargo pants, with pockets at the knee and mid thigh, usually stuffed full of random things that he thinks he might need, made of a thick and durable material.  He usually wears a large, loose shirt to hide his musculature, and a black safari jacket over top that.  Around his waist is a black webbed belt, on which he carries his PDA and comm.  Around his neck, he wears a small silver dragon pendant on a fine chain.  When he is not going to classes, he usually wears a pair of voluminous pants, a tight fitting mottled forest green shirt, the belt, with comm and PDA, the dragon pendant, and a loose fitting olive drab button up shirt, usually unbuttoned.  He can be found wearing a pair of gold reflective shooters sunglasses, and a small music player with the headphones around his neck, the music usually playing.  He usually reserves wearing his knife for outdoors work, laser tag, or paintball.

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. Faryn wants to be either a lift designer, building his own lifts, or a researcher on technofamiliars, coming up with ways to make them more realistic.  He has skills with basic robotics engineering, software design, and many other arcane subjects.  He is willing to learn any skills he would need to remain at mars academy, however.

Why does your character want to be at the Academy rather than at another Academy, or some other location? Faryn has had a major hero worship for Darius Akaelae ever since he discovered the sport of grav ball.  His one great hope in life is to meet THE Darius Akaelae.  Thus traveling all the distance to mars academy when he could have gotten a sufficient education elsewhere.

What goals does your character have for the future? His main goal is to meet Darius, though that may not be likely.  He has implemented a rigorous study and organization program to increase his grades, all in the hopes of meeting his idol.  His secondary goal, and the one he has had since he understood the concept, is to be an exceptional engineer.  Not necessarily famous, but great.

What is your characters nature and thoughts on others of his/her species? He has no stereotypical opinions about any members of his race, preferring instead to meet and get to know the person before passing judgment.

What is his or her view on other species? He has a slight distrust of other species, except for wolves, as he has spent much time around them.  Other than that, he tends to approach people of other species with the same attitude as those of his species, preferring to pass judgment after getting to know the person.

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? Faryn’s life starts out exciting, gets rather boring, and then over the past two years, picks up the interest again.  First of all, he is adopted, living in a house where his mother is a wolf and his father is a cheetah.  When he was around three months old, his biologic parents were killed by a crazed wolf, the day they were meant to return to their home from wolf lands.  He was almost immediately put into foster care, and the couple that were caring for him eventually adopted him at around the age of four.  Three years before the adoption, however, they took in another foster child, a red fox named Artherige, who was at the time about five years older than Faryn.  They became great friends, and when he was adopted, she was as well.  When he was around ten, his father convinced his mother to move to mounty lands.  The week before his thirteenth birthday, he became extremely depressed, and had to be hospitalized for a month.  This was due to his pet whip, who had been with him for years, dieing.  Around fifteen, he got into some trouble for rashly hacking into a remote wolf server, and got picked up by the police.  He spent six months in boot camp for the offense, and since then, has been very careful to think things through before he does them.  About two months ago, he was doing some research on academys that he was eligible to go to, and found mars academy.  His mother said go, so he went.
He has no extended family that he knows of, but has his sister, Artheridge, who is working for security at Mars Academy, his mother, who grew up in the wolf city of Centralis and is a researcher for advanced robotics technology, and his father, who has bounced all over the place as a merchant.  His life before the Academy was filled with goofing off with his friends, relaxing at the local water park, and just all around having fun.  He did have some issues, however, with his parents being an odd combination.  Much of his fear of bullying and peer acceptance stems from the treatment that he got in the lower education levels due to this fact.

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?
