About You What is your Byond key? Subosovitch How long have you been playing on Baystation 12? 1-2 Months? I am not really good with time. What are the names of your better-known characters? Jera Stafford (Science) TELOS (AI/Borg) M.O.B. (Borg) About The Species What alien species are you applying for? Dionaea, all of them. Why do you want to play as the alien species? I had a fun time as a Nymph and find the concept of a collective of very curious beings that grow on light and radiation very appealing. Plus their non-regular form of life makes it a nice change to the regular human. Also all Dionaea I met so far were a really good addition the RP. What are some example names for the alien species? Names in a classical sense dont exist, rather they choose a series of names that 'defined' them in a way such as: A bright crystal floating over a distant snowfield being covered in red fungus Stars illuminating a deep cavern with dark corners through bright stars Metal brushing against a bright wall on the darkest days of a planetfall Those names usually are cut shorter to adapt to the beings they are around. And to save the HR department headaches. Summarize what you know about the species. Firstly Dionaea are not a single individual but many. Alone they are called Diona Nymphs which are the size of cats, two or more are that have freshly formed are considered a gestalt and once they synced up proper and reached a suffiencent amount of Biomass they become a Dionaea that can form up to the size of space stations and stars. The larger a Dionaea are the slower they think due to their decentralized nervous system however their capacity increases. Additionally they do not have DNA, although cell based. Generally the individual Diona move similar to a catapillar. They also form new Diona by seeds which grow similar to plants. They do not regularly breath although they occationally intake gasses for heat management. They usually feed of light and radiation which allows them to inhabit spaces no one else would. As for their behavior they at large are high curious and depending on their size rather slow and usually tend to be more passive. This also leads to rather peacefull behavior although they are not limited to it, they simply lack the understanding of why violence would be needed in most cases. Given that they are a group of beings they lack any concept of personal space and are therefore quite touchy. They might also be perceived as naive when they are still learning, which they usually strive to do above all else. The longer they are around others the more adapted they become, however they are also mostly focused on learning new things. Also notable is that Dionaea have two forms of communication which is refered as "rootspeak". One is for shorter communication, such as a single cluster of Dionaea and longer range, beyond normal space, with other clusters.
