    About The Species

    What alien species are you applying for?

    Why do you want to play as the alien species?
    Vox appealed to me before as a race of alien scavengers with little care for others. They are unlikable, greedy, and downright evil at times to further their own ends and goals or those of their masters.

    What are some example names for the alien species?
    Chakirakik, Kreekitikik, or as the wiki puts it 'To a human, of course, this would simply be CHRAAKIYAKITIKAAA'

    Summarize what you know about the species.
    The Vox are a species of genetically designed reptilian bird-like people. As they're genetically engineered, they don't breed and are sterile. Any new Vox bodies are made not born. Due to the nature of their rigid plates across their body, the Vox can survive for a time in Vacuum by forming a pressure seal.

    Vox have 'Cortical stacks' which are mostly comparable, if highly superior, to human laces. This allows functional immortality and Vox minds and entire lives to be uploaded to a 'new' Vox.

    Vox 'culture' is an interesting thing. From an external perspective, Vox appear to be seemingly random in their attacks and behavior towards other races. This is primarily due to two factors. The first being Vox do not view other races as anything more than a 'thing'. The second being the deity-like awe and reverence the Vox hold for their Apex bio-computers, and as such, will follow any and all orders the Apex give.

    The facial, throat, and neck markings of a Vox are both a status booster and a display of the Vox's lineage and history as well as its Arkship origin.

    Vox have no home worlds, colonies, or static stations. The Arkship is home as is the fleet that is typically amassed around one.

    Tell me about how you feel vox are meant to act and behave in your own words.

    Give me a vox character concept.

    Vox are opportunistic scavengers. Always looking for easy marks and tech to steal from the other races. Somewhat cowardly, they won't dive headfirst into any combat they don't have an advantage in. For intra-Vox behavior the Vox Hierarchy is determined by a might-makes-right series of competitions. The lone exception to this is a Quill appointed by the Apex as their de-facto leadership.

    A 'good' Vox is one who listens to his Quill, as he is the appointed leader by the Apex, while taking anything shiny that isn't, or even is, nailed down.

    Character Concept:
    Chikichikree is a 'young' Vox recently implanted with his Cortical Stack. His diminutive stature has forced him low on the social totem pole despite his relatively impressive neck markings. Ambitious and seeking to live this life worthy of his heritage, he will happily join in on raids of more dangerous marks that most Vox might shy away from.
