    About The Species

    What alien species are you applying for?

    Why do you want to play as the alien species?
    I like the idea of sneaking about the away sites to collect things, also being an annoyance for the explorers is a plus as most away missions are otherwise not eventful. The idea of being an indirect 'threat' is interesting too, for instead of directly engaging someone, which will almost always end in bloodshed, The Vox instead subscribe to the Johnathan Joestar Survival Technique of Running The Hell Away despite their advanced weapons and armor, (which would only usually be used in defense).

    What are some example names for the alien species?
    Their names would resemble the results of applying once's face to a keyboard, repeatedly.
    For example: Kiririka'taltahrah, Tivirio'to'cha, Vivikah'chati'ti

    The names are mostly made out of 'chirping' sounds like what a bird would say. While these names do resemble a bird with tourettes, in the Vox tongue they would go something like this: Blue-Metal Armed Technician of The Three Crew Scavenging Hauler of The Arkship Meandering Traveler.

    Summarize what you know about the species.
    The true form of The Vox is not the foul smelling bird that we all know and love (hate?), rather it is a small piece of ancient technology from before the decline of Vox Society. A Cortical Stack, embedded into an artificially designed and fabricated organic body which is purpose-built, and apparently the best body-form is that of a elongated, featherless, porcupine headed, three-beaked, possibly part reptilian, chicken.

    There are two variants of Vox. The Primalis, which are your average Vox, and the Armalis which are larger and stronger, usualy serving as a group's leader. The Vox all obediently serve The Apex, Large bio-computers within the cores of their Arks, though non-vox would know nothing of this. The Arks are ancient ships built by The Vox long before they would even be recognized as The Vox we know now. This ships have been built upon over the ages encasing them in Shrouds of other vessels bolted together with bits of scrap. I would imagine it would look alot like a massive floating junkyard that disregards all laws of physics simply out of spite.

    To sum up, The Vox are scavengers seeking to serve their Apex Masters, whom live within The Arks, Which lay encased in Shrouds of scrapped ships and debris.

    If anything needs to be changed and/or fixed, let me know! I have read the wiki page at least five times now to be sure.

    Sorry it took so long to get to this
    I'd like to hear you explain more about how they act towards each other and non-vox and how you think they would act based on what you have seen before I make a choice

    After that I'll give you a response

    Interpersonal Relations and Vox
    Groupings of Vox will follow a 'Social Hierarchy', with the Apex Designated Quills acting as leaders. Vox will spar one another, or compare each other in a contest, for social ranking. Younger, and weaker, vox will be among the lowest in this order.

    Vox possess markings on the throats of their bodies, these markings indicate one's history and accomplishments. Vox will 'flash' these markings in prelude to a fight.

    Beyond this show of force for dominance, Vox consider the members of their 'group', be it a small five-person crew or a hundred-person facility, to be family.

    The Vox and You: How They Feel About You:
    How do The Vox feel about you? In short: They don't. You are meat, you do not have a Cortical Stack so you must not even be a person! The Vox will not acknowledge things such as borders or even political entities, rather, their concerns could be considered simpler.

    "Is The Meat armed?" "Is The Meat weak?" "Does The Meat have anything valuable?" "Can The Meat stop us?"
    Vox will generally ignore any 'targets' that would be dangerous to raid, like the SEV Torch, except to watch for any openings.

    While it is possible for Vox to speak ZAC to communicate, they consider it beneath them and won't demean themselves with it unless it is absolutely necessary. For example: If you managed to catch a vox, you will find it suddenly gains the ability to speak to you! It will offer you what ever you want, so long as you release them, and the moment the restraints are off: The Vox is too, it would be about twenty meters down the hall before you can even drop the handcuffs!

    As for The Vox's views on The Races:
    Humans are loud, noisy, things that are aggravating to be around. Not to mention how quick they are to shoot at Vox!

    Skrell possess such valuable things, but those things are also very dangerous when used against Vox. Skrell are to be avoided, but if any of their technology is left unguarded, Grab it!

    Unathi are large lumps of lizard-meat, too dumb to produce anything worth taking. Vox are not afraid of Unathi! Shut up!

    Dionae are good sources of fuel and rare materials, and they barely defend themselves! Not the greatest targets, but it is better than nothing.

    GAS: Dumb, no technology! Toxic, can't even eat! Horrible Meat.

    IPC: Is made of technology! Can't eat it, it's metal, but is good scrap!

    The Ascent are considered in a similar manner as Skrell, in that they make wonderful targets but they are also heavily armed and defended. If a Vox ever discovers unguarded Ascent Technology it is to grab it immediately and get it to their Arkship quickly.
