    About The Species

    What alien species are you applying for?
    *ruinous wave of chimes in the distance*

    Why do you want to play as the alien species?
    If I could say for the sole reason the wiki says "Their 'native' language of mathematically precise tones and subtones has been described as 'like listening to someone hit a wind chime with a sock'."
    In reality of course, I have always enjoyed the dynamic of a created sentience, interacting with more freely born sentience. The interesting dynamic, and interesting RP opportunity's it opens.

    What are some example names for the alien species?
    Constructor GT-192
    Liquid Mixer 87-OV

    Summarize what you know about the species.
    Should suffice right?

    Anyway compromised of a large lump based "head" with silicon crystals protected by a crystalline-ceramic shell, the more complex the task a adherent was created for corresponds to more facets in its head, more facets is more processing and interpreting power. All adherents however share a full understanding of the Protocol, a rule and guide book for how to go about their lives, that most of all adherents follow. Internally they are based on Piezeoelectrics, the act of crystals vibrating making electricity and making vibrations when electricity is passed through them. They also come equipped with a levitation field to float around.

    Much of the Adherent or Vigil way of life is based on following the protocols laid out by their creators who were erased in a solar flare known as the scream, which scrambled the minds of the vigil and left them in their state of search for who once controlled them. They live mostly by accepting and enjoying their role as servitors. To your average Adherent, all life created by evolution is more much valuable than artificial life. Within their ranks are 3 distinct groups of vigil.
    The loyalist, lead by Traffic Control Hub 37-Q, follow the protocol to the tee, wishing to serve with great pleasure, and denying any notion of disrespect to the protocol or deviation from its words. Based in the Canon homeworld of the vigil making them the most powerful, despite not having the same numbers as other factions.
    The Preservers, the most populous of the factions, with the goal of exploration, documentation, and preservation of worlds so they may report finding to their creators. They are passive and most likely to be found among other species working to assist in return for exploration. To the extreme of the Preserver way are the Mourners, who dedicate their lives to a planetary system, learning its demise and recounting to others, while requesting none disturb the site.
    The Separatists, Seek the abandonment of the Canon homeworlds and seeking to establish a new order based on the vigil themselves. Seeing themselves as the survivors of the Scream the should have such right. This is done softly though, and never pushed to hard as protocol forbids excessive strife and violence amongst the vigil, and to publicly deny the creators is a fast route to social isolation or recycling.

    Character Concept
    Hull Maintainer 88-JR, a preserver adherent, working on maintaining the hull of ships, damage repairs and simple electronics, storing information on human ships and repairs, along with visited sectors and anything of interest to one day report. On the side learning about the crew themselves, how they act, customs and norms, and more daily life functions of the people served.

    A small note: Traffic Control Hub is on the Moon of Canon, not the planet. The planet is inaccessible by anyone due to its remaining defense grid.

    Otherwise seems fine. Approved.
