[Character] Tannia Ambrye
« on: 23 Dec 2017, 23:25 »

I don't know if this is still being done, but I'm seeing a lot of new entries. So, here's my character's description with some addes notes.

@DESC
A thin figure, Tannia stands at a height of 162.4 cm. While her hair is naturally a dark brown, Tannia often dyes or bleaches the hair on her head and face. Both the left brow and the right ear lobe are pierced with simple adornments. Hazel eyes peer out from an open and expressive face that is marred by a prominent scar across Tannia's mouth. Despite this minor disfigurement, Tannia does not appear to suffer any speech abnormalities. When not on duty Tannia is usually dressed in casual attire though she is fond of the Blood Raider jacket that she had obtained from fighting a local band of Raiders. Plain, black slacks run into a pair of heeled, high Blood Raider boots.

@SCORE
Age: 28Gender: Cis-femalePlanet of Origin: Intaki Prime
Faction: FederationPolitics: Possibly Anarchist CommunistAlma Mater: University of Caille
* Known and vocal Caldari sympathizer
Race: IntakiCurrent Corp: Cloaked Goof
Bloodline: RebornReligion: Non-religiousCurrent Location: Undetermined
* Outspoken anti-theist
.

    The only child of Dhruv and Aarohi Ambrye, Tannia spend the majority of her childhood on Intaki Prime. She and her family lived in a ramshackle house at the edge of the city, though they were poor some of Tannia's fondest memories were of this time.
    As Tannia entered teenhood both of her parents landed well paying jobs which required them to move to Gallente Prime. Tannia's mother got a job as the junior director of Public Relations at the Intaki Embassy, and her father got a secondary school teaching position. While both her parents were more than qualified for the positions they, in fact, earned, they would probably have never gotten them if it wasn't for the intervention of the Ishukone corporation. The involvement of Ishukone in her family's fortune, though it was simply a small part of many ongoing cooperative efforts that were occurring between Ishukone and Intaki leaders, left Tannia with a favorable impression of the Caldari. The change in fortune, oddly enough, also marked the beginning of Tannia's move away from her religion and a temporary one from her culture.
Spoiler (hover to show)
    After an emergency operation Tannia came to regard The Ida as a dangerous fairy tale that leads some parents to, albeit unknowingly, abuse their children. In time Tannia came to view all religions this way and her anger continued until her late teens. Naturally this caused her parents considerable distress, less over her leaving The Ida, but for her often irritable state when religion was discussed.
    Spending all that time living on Gallente Prime, immersed in Gallente culture, plus her frustrations with how some Intaki practiced their religion, alienated Tannia from much of her culture. Naturally Tannia adopted the Gallente culture, which she saw as superior. Tannia began to see problems in Gallente culture that most Gallente were oblivious too. Not only did Tannia see that the Intaki people were often second-class citizens in the Federation, but other non Gallente cultures often were treated the same way, as is if they were tolerated for their quaintness and not of any value in themselves. Due to her mother being an employee at the embassy, and her high grades, Tannia was eligible for a grant from the Federal Navy. This funding allowed Tannia to enter into a Sociology program which only deepened her disillusionment with Gallente culture.
    During Tannia's studies it was found out that she was potentially compatible for becoming a capsuleer. Forever curious, Tannia decided to accept the risks and persevered in the program.
    When Tannia was released from service to become an independent capsuleer she soon joined up with the Cloaked Goofs corporation. It wasn't long after that when she found herself involved in the Caldari side of Faction Warfare. As Tannia had been advocating for the Federation to return the territories back to the Caldari, she found this an acceptable way to support the Caldari effort. Still Tannia regretted that it often involved having to kill Federation Navy personnel. Tannia was also an advocate of supporting the Minmatar emancipation efforts and being allied to the Amarr was disconcerting to her.
    Fortunately Tannia learned that there were many Federation citizens and capsuleers who, not only advocated the Federation to do the right thing, but were actively supporting the Caldari in one way or another. Tannia was also encouraged to find that many Amarr were also working to emancipate their population's slaves, Minmatar and otherwise, even as she thought that they were being too slow to act on it.
    Recently, Tannia's corp decided to leave Faction Warfare despite having had considerable success. Though the Cloaked Goofs are no longer officially involved in the war effort, members are still allowed to participate individually on an unofficial basis if they wish, and Tannia is committed to do her part as she can until the Federation comes to reason.

Anyhow, that's what I've got. Comments, concerns or criticisms?

It's still being done as long as EVE has an RP community, hehe. Just a lot of profiles have been up for a long time!

Yours is an okay start. You don't want to go into more details, though? This is the place to describe your character's backstory if you want, provided you are okay with other people seeing it.

Thanks Samira,

I wasn't too sure how much detail would be too much. Perhaps more on the physical description? I just lifted the @DESC from my in-game bio that I had generated and I forgot that I was depending on my avatar for that part. So, I'll flesh the description out a bit more.

As for a background story, I have one but I'm currently revising it. Too many inconsistencies or missing details for me to be satisfied with it right now, but I promise I'll post it soon.

What Samira said, with an additional point that you may already have in mind: your background is likely to expand as a result of your RP interactions, so you don't have to have the whole thing written in stone to begin RP. For instance, the character Samira might ask Tannia what her favorite meal is, and suddenly you have a causal chain of questions and answers that could fill a whole paragraph or two. So, as she said, start where you are, and continue to develop as your writing and RP provide you with more details that you are inclined to share.

Right-o Stutzer,

I'll try not to fret over my bg too much. When I get home from work I'll make what changes I think matter at this point and post the bg when I'm able. I just hate the thought of redacting and retconning my character later, so I want to at least get the basic information right as well as known recent developments.

Thanks.

Edit: Or it turns out that I read the schedule incorrectly and I don't work today after all. As that's what actually happened. At least this goes well with my theme of avoiding unnecessary responsibility, or some such.

The bio looks pretty good for me. Only suggestion I would make would be to bump her age up a bit. Capsuleer training is about 5 years, and requires a previous advanced degree to certify (so add another 2-4 years on top). While some amount of that could be potentially bypassed by some character types, it's usually a good idea to put new capsuleers at late 20s instead of early. And from what I can see, bumping the age shouldn't affect anything else in your story besides giving more time for her training. :)

Right, makes sense. Consider it bumped.
