What is your Synthetic’s Personality?

Working Joes lack any emotion, empathy or similar other then mostly polite pre-recorded voice lines for the unit.

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?

If the unit is idle or not doing any sort of work and a private or similar walks to to the unit needing help, the unit would assist in whatever task the unit is needed unless it is above the unit’s league, like medical care, advanced repairs or if the task contradicts the synthetic laws.
If the unit is already doing work, it would continue to perform the task while listening to the private, them it would judge if the task is more or less important than the one it is already doing, unless the Joe has been told to not stop said task by an higher up or by the ARES.

If the unit is already performing a task and a higher up requires help, the unit would stop doing its task immediately and start performing the task the higherup would want the Joe to perfom, unless the unit has been forbidden to do such task by the ARES or if the task contradicts the synthetic laws.

Why do you want to be a synthetic/why should we whitelist you?

I find Working Joes underappreciated, they’re very cool in my opinion, id like to make them a more prominent aspect of the avarage marine roleplay, either by assisting them or just overall making the almeyer look more alive with working joes around

What is your most memorable interaction with a synthetic?

With an actual Synth: I was returning to the FOB looking for medical attention, i been splashed with acid and slashed by a xeno, there i was met with a synth, while she was taking care of my wounds i said “Damn, no offense, but y’all synths creep me the hell out”, she then said “I will try to not take offense” and smiled which creeped me (or my character) the hell out

With a Joe: We were waiting for briefing next to the Alamo when a Joe walked by cleaning, i asked him to “Say the line”, he ignored me because well, Joes arent supposed to know the line, i kept to going with some marines til someone said “Say the line or i will shoot myself”, the Joe then acknowledged and said “You are becoming hysterical”, memorable moment

Synthetic Character Story:

I do not think a Working Joe needs this, but i will still write if needed after the application has been sent.



I am pretty familiar with engineering, fixing stuff, building cades and all that, but i wouldnt say im THAT good.


I have zero experience with command, which is why im refraining from trying to get an actual Synth, sticking to working joes.


Same case as command, but i know a little bit of the basic.


This is my bread and butter, manning req lines, hauling crates around, stamping the papers, putting things in their places, lovely.

What are some scenarios that you can perform combat in? Give us a brief example.

If a marine or unauthorized personnel is found actively attempting to harm the AI core, the unit is permitted to grab the subject to escort them or use blunt force trauma (usually to the head or torso) to incapacitate the subject.

Final Info:

Have you been banned from CM in the last month for any reason? Do you have any active jobbans?

Yes, actually a day ago because i believe i was celebrating the victory by shooting and hit someone, they must have banned me from the logs.

Are you currently banned from our Discord?


Let us know why you were discord banned.


Do you have anything else you would like to include about your application?

I do understand that if by some miracle i am whitelisted i will have access to all the 3 synthetics, USCM, colony and Joes, however i do not intend to spawn as an actual Synth, i promise to only play as the Joe and the Joe ONLY.

We do not whitelist for WJ-only. If you wish to play WJ only, apply as a moderator and moderators have access to the role. If you wish to apply for synthetic, you can do so in 30 days. As usual, I will recommend using the WL application help channel in discord to refine any application prior to submission.
