About You What is your Byond key? RustingWithYou How long have you been playing on Baystation 12? About six months What are the names of your better-known characters? Casimir Tilton, Senior Researcher Rusty Ali, Prospector About The Species What alien species are you applying for? Vox Why do you want to play as the alien species? I've encountered Vox raiders quite a few times as prospector, and I find them interesting antagonists. Having read some of the lore, I find them one of the most interesting species in bay lore right now, and I'd like to see more players playing them, so I figured I should put my money where my mouth is. What are some example names for the alien species? A Vox name, in Vox Pigdin, is a summarised version of that Vox's position and role. To someone who doesn't understand Vox Pigdin, it will sound like an incomprehensible screeching noise. Some example Vox names would be Kraikitiarii, Riitrikakari or Raiikyattalikkatiivaak. Summarize what you know about the species. The Vox are a mystery to most of the galaxy, largely just viewed as greedy, cowardly thieves. Vox are in reality the bio-engineered servants of an extinct race, now serving the ancient biological supercomputers their creators left behind. These computers, known as the Apex, are so degraded after thousands of years that they are effectively insane, giving seemingly random and erratic commands - which the Vox follow religiously. Vox technology is a bizarre patchwork of extremely advanced technology left by their creators and crudely patched together stolen technology from other species. One of the most important pieces of Vox technology is the cortical stack, a second authoritative brain that is implanted into every Vox. This basically is a Vox's consciousness, which can be recovered and resleeved in another Vox body. However, Vox memories fade over time when the stack is not active. Vox view other species as non-sentient due to their lack of a cortical stack, and as such have a general apathy towards them, referring to them as 'meat'. Meat is ignored unless it is useful to the Vox, after which it is discarded or eaten. Because of this, Vox are generally shunned in civilised space, and make do raiding and salvaging in backwater systems. Vox tend to avoid well-armed targets, giving them a galactic reputation as cowards. Vox will not actively pursue violence unless the meat is outnumbered, outgunned or both. Self-preservation and preservation of other Vox are extremely important to the Vox, as they lack the ability to create new cortical stacks. As Vox numbers are ever-dwindling, retrieving stacks is an extremely high priority. Vox have a series of neck and face markings that are basically their entire personal history/genetic lineage.
