Quote: It's nothing one swift kick won't cure...
How much experience do you have with role-playing? How much time have you spent on MUSHs/MUXs/etc.? Been on the MARPG awhile

What is your character's personality? Fun-loving, a little bit suspicious of others, but once she decides she can trust you she's very outgoing and boisterous, tends to speak her mind
What things does she like?  Sweet foods, music with a strong beat, brightly colored things
Dislike?  Low ceilings, cluttered floors, not having an escape route around those she doesn't know enough to trust
What are the strong points of your character?  Hard working, determined, good memory
Weak points?  Slightly suspicious of some races, lacks tact, has some difficulty telling the difference between stories that are fiction and those that aren't
Name one thing your character would never do and why.  Not share a good story, because stories only live when shared
How does she interact with others?  She can be a little suspicious at first, but very friendly once she decides she can trust you
What are their abilities, hobbies, things they're good at?  She loves storytelling, along with reading and watching vids to learn new ones, also likes body painting
MENTION if they carry some sort of weapon.  Sheathed dagger, lightweight bolo

Give an example description of your character.   She's  solid dark charcoal grey with a cream colored throat and belly, often streaked with brightly colored body paint designs.  She stands at 5'6"... though gains a few inches when she leans back on her tail.  Turquoise colored eyes.  She has thin, black, shoulder length hair bound into a series of long thin braids held with beads and often dyed at the tips.  She prefers to wear a brightly colored bunn flap with tassles that hangs low enough to allow her free access to her pouch, and a necklace of brightly colored feathers.

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.  She has a good memory for stories, and a genuine interest in humans, but is there more as a part to get her race to interact more with other Cyantians.
Why does your character want to be at the Academy rather than at another Academy, or some other location?  Earth humans are interesting... Mars Academy is where she's most likely to observe one for real.
What goals does your character have for the future?  She has no real long term goals at the moment, right now she wants to learn what she can and see what develops.

What is your characters nature and thoughts on others of her species?  We're great.  We have a long and proud history, and we know how to have fun.

What is her view on other species?
 Aquatics: Decent enough critters I guess.  They've kept to their territory and left us ours, so they can't be all bad, though we haven't had much interaction.
 Digni: Decent fellows, though how they can stand spending all that time underground....  We get along fine with them.
 Wolf, Mounty, Mouse:  Don't know... they are newcomers, but the Digni say we can trust them... and the Golden Mother did say not all newcomers were bad... I guess we can give them a chance.
 Most other immigrants: Don't know them, haven't heard much about them... treat with caution.
 Fox:  Evil.  Worst of the newcomers.  They like to shoot things and kidnap individuals.  Treat with suspicion and extreme caution.
 Genoworks Products: Monsters created by the Fox - not to be trusted. 
 Rifier and Vusoolum: Cannibalistic savages... how about we just avoid those who want to eat us?
 Humans: Interesting... by their stories they have some similarities.  Especially living in a world surrounded by hostiles - they could walk outside one day and get eaten by a lion, a bear, or a T-Rex, and yet they go on like nothing happened.

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?
  Shyssa grew up in an isolated semi-tropical village on Aciace.  She had a normal childhood, playing with her friends, tending the fields, gathering fruit in the nearby jungles under the watchful eye of the companion scythetails, and learning the teaching stories.  She had a special knack for storytelling, being able to remember and repeat flawlessly each story after only one telling, and in fact had plans one day to become the chief storyteller for her village.  It was a quiet and mostly simple life.
 Then the digni came.  They were welcomed into the village, for the two races have gotten along well in the past, and they did know how to throw a party, but they also spread an interesting story.  They told of their interactions with the newcomers, and how with the passage of time things had changed... and perhaps it was time for the Jilaic to become reacquainted with the rest of the world.  The elders discussed it for several days, before deciding to allow several of their brightest students, including Shyssa, to travel and learn what they can about the other races.
  Shyssa accompanied the Digni to a wolven city, and attended a smaller Academy, quickly learning much of the basics while getting more acclimated to being around non-Jilaic.  While there she also perused the database for any stories she could find, and ran across several Earth vids, which she found fascinating.  Although the humans looked different, they seemed to have grown up in a similarily hostile environment, and bore further study.  Of course, second hand stories don't match hearing them first hand... so she applied to Mars Academy in the hopes of meeting some.  It also would have the side effect of introducing her to more species than she was likely to run into at the smaller Academy, but her instructors saw that as being a good thing in the long run.
