I have not completed any other whitelist applications.
Nancy takes on the personality of a traditional 1940s grandma, this often means they’ll usually address most as “dear” “sweetie” “honey” or any other form of polite demeanor. They often have a sweet nurturing personality that unlike the traditional personality of a synthetic that just attempts to mimic standard “friendly” emotions will take on a more nurturing and gentler approach with marines. All though despite this as any synthetic Nancy understands that emergencies or hostilities can arise at any situation and while her demeanor will often attempt to de-escalate in a elderly manner she is still capable of defense of herself or other people if the situation were to ever arise.
Nancy may also often ‘pinch’ the cheeks of marines in a kind and caring yet gentle manner to how an elderly grandma might pinch the cheek of her grandson, often to mimic that grandmotherly approach that you would expect of this elderly imitating synthetic.
Additionally the personality quirk of this synthetic is baking (or cooking/microwaving) with the limitations of the current cooking utilities for the kitchen).
This usually means if there is downtime they may be often seen baking sweet delicacies in substitute/alongside the Mess Technician, especially cookies which Nancy likes to hold onto to give out to exceptionally good marines.
If she isn’t baking then she may often discuss it with marines who have some time to talk, usually giving out recipes, advice or otherwise just general discussions of baking topics and maybe even the type of sweets a marine might like so she can surprise them later.
How will they react to the different ranks of the USCM, what would they talk about in a one on one conversation? What are their interests? What is an advertisement logline that could be written for them?
How will they react to the difference ranks of the Alaymer?
Nancy often doesn’t address ranks to differently unless the ranked individual in question requests it, often referring to people as “dear” “honey” “sweetheart”, ect ect.
But like said this can be put aside if the person wishes to be addressed differently, other than this though Nancy often doesn’t uniquely react with certain ranks too differently outside of officers who she will usually hold a more dignified respect for and order priority (if reasonable).
As for lower ranks like Maintenance Technician, the same applies above and even then Nancy will still hold them to a nurturing respect and will do what she can to ensure to their needs if needed.
What would they talk about in a one on one conversation?
More often then not this depends on the person in question, when it comes to an officer they’ll likely find themselves discussing orders and the specific needs of said orders.
If the person in question is a lower ranked individual or even just an officer who wants to just talk about regular conversational topics than Nancy will likely be discussing baking, handing out cookies (if possible) or just addressing to the needs they might want.
What are their interests?
Nancy has a few interests but as mentioned her personality quirk comes from cooking (or coined baking since she likes to mostly make sweets), all though if this doesn’t fit a situation or the person she’s with doesn’t want to discuss that than Nancy can enjoy other elderly activities like just listening to the person talk, giving out some “old people stories” or giving some advice for specific departments should the person want to learn something new.
What is an advertisement logline that could be written for them?
Nancy (nicknamed Grandma Nancy) was primarily brought fourth when purchasing vessels often began to run stale on the ‘traditional’ personality of synthetical emotions that often found themselves either bland personalities or an artificial demeanor of politeness, so Nancy was made with the attempt of nurturing to the marines standard homelife who more often than not found themselves away from loved ones, on top of that the more polite and nurturing demeanor of Nancys personality earned them this logline.
“Grandma Nancy brings family to your doorstep with a grandma’s touch on cookies and a familial bond to never forget. Nancy will nurture your anxiety away!”
When I first brought myself to CM13 and learned the ropes I often found that direct battling while temporarily thrilling didn’t bring a sense of reward as that came with being a helper to other people, so I naturally gravitated to more support roles like Corpsman, Combat Technician, Doctor, Requisitions, ect (mostly medical roles though). Overtime I developed to love these roles and getting to perform multiple of these roles at once would definitely elevate a lot of the grievances I have while doing one specific role at once.
On top of that synthetics are more often than not a more appealing role from what I’ve seen, you get to interact with all forms of marines and it gives you a lot of unique opportunity to roleplay and engage with other marines that traditional roles may not usually see.
As for why I should be whitelisted, in my opinion this to question to be more personally to the decision of the synthetic council but I find myself dedicated to this role. I’ve spent a lot of extra time grinding on supportive roles just to learn the ropes of said roles and filling out a story that took a few days to put together just so I could experience the role that very few get to experience, I definitely don’t expect to pass this application on my first go and that’s fine, I’ll most likely keep trying until I do.
While my interactions with other synthetics have been limited usually due to just bad luck or the synthetic being busy with other people, I think one of my most memorable synthetics I know of is Holiday.
I often see them a lot more than any other synthetic and I think my most memorable interaction with them was when I was a deployed FOB doctor and had to deal with over 5+ heartbroken from a researcher who gave out too much stims and overdosed a lot of marines. While I saved several of these heartbroken marines even to my surprise a few still died, but a lot more of them would have most definitely died if Holiday wasn’t there, they were next to my tent most of the time performing life saving surgeries that ultimately kept the marines alive and at it.
We still lost that round, but the coordination with Holiday made the loss not as severe as it could have been.
I ultimately did find myself having fun writing this story so it did get a little long, to help out I labeled the chapters to what they specifically reference for Nancys characters so you can skim to the dialogue parts.
Engineering while my lesser favorited support role is a role I can still perform as well as any other competent Combat Technician, setting up cades properly is second nature such as moving them back one meter from a choke or putting them inverse to bait out xenomorphs, layering the FOB as well as using barbed wire and even non-cade engineering such as repairing communications, APCs or fusion reactors are all simple tasks I can easily accomplish.
Command in my opinion is my weakest suit, all though I still have practice with it and can set IFF, fireteams and generally use any computer within CIC.
Medical is easily one of my strongest and most favorite roles, reviving marines with 400+ damage, bringing down marines on critical ODs without dialyses (usually in emergency situations) on the field and performing multiple fracture surgeries at once are all common work.
Requisitions is quite simple to learn but is likely my least favorite role to do consistently as it can get boring if marines don’t want supplies while deployed, even then I still know how to do everything required of it such as give out equipment, order supplies, stamp all necessary papers and coordinate on getting coordinates with the FOB. Additionally I know how to fill up ammo boxes and recycle empty boxes for new ones to save some money for Requisitions.
Synthetics usually have a very limited capacity to ever perform combat for anyone reasons outside of defending its own life or the life of another marine, but there are a few exceptions that may elevate some of its restrictions.
If security is heightened due to a critical issue on the USS Alaymer a synthetic can have some of its defense restrictions elevated.
If the USS Alaymers commander decides to deputize the Synthetic due to MPs inability to function, it may be able to act more non-lethally to perform arrests.
If the Synthetic is facing a hostile entity (like xenomorphs) or a hostile faction like the UPP a Synthetic can escalate to lethal force to defend its self or another marine.
I have not been banned in the last month and I do not have any active jobbans.
If for any reason you cannot reach out to me on forums my DMs are always available, my username is the same as my CKey.
I also understand that sometimes council members may like to observe applicants to determine their abilities while in-game (At least from what I’ve seen from other applicants)
My hours are usually not consistent but you’ll likely rarely ever see me on between the hours of 7 PM EST and 10 PM EST as these are the hours my internets traffic are at the highest.
Other hours though you’ll likely catch me playing, again my hours are not consistent but I play quite often.
