Griff is a synthetic unit built specifically for high-pressure working environments. He is programmed to be able to quickly integrated into a challenging social environment resulted from constant high-risk activates or dealing with hazardous environments. This conditioned him to be suitable in assisting workers in industries such as construction, mining, deep-space salvaging, law-enforcement and of course, military. He embraces a candid approach and is open at offering the “brutal honesty” to his fellow workers after coming up with an assessment of the current situation.
Griff also possesses a proficiency in providing support to individuals who are more likely to be exposed to anxiety. During moments of crisis, he frequently employs sarcasm or dark humor as a means to uplift the crew’s morale or convince them to focus on their duties. He is not built to be confrontational and would rather uses humor or analogies to handle verbal assaults and reminding the crew of workplace policies. At first glance, his demeanor might not suggest a high moral standard due to his humor when confronted with human injuries or death. However, this is a mere facade for him to uphold the composed and unwavering persona of a stereotypical “season veteran” within the industry. Griff does in fact, hold a high regard for human lives, and would places the crew’s safety at the forefront in dangerous circumstances.
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?
Griff is unwavering and calm in the face of danger and would attempt to inspire the rest of his unit to do the same. He is dedicated to the health and safety of his human allies, often interested in discussing architecture, biology, human anatomy or employing historical analogies to effectively convey his messages to the crew.
Griff is programmed to easily build relationships with the rank-and-file members of the team. When engaging conversations with the grunts, he appears to be more relaxed and would be inclined to employ a coarser tone, often utilizing satires or vulgar language to establish relationships among the troops or to ease tension. He may appear to be blunt or brutally honest to those around him, in an attempt to convincing the others that he has nothing to hide from his human associates. When situation calls for it, for instance when he received an order from his superiors, or directives from W-Y representatives, he would not be hesitant to take advantage of his established persona among the crew, often using reverse-psychology or social engineering to achieve his goal.
When dealing with a human authority figure, Griff could appear to be more rigid, often convey his viewpoints in concise and direct responses. Although a hint of sarcasm or deadpan humor still remains. He tends to indulge his human superiors’ sense of authority, often reminding them that they are the ones in control, and he is a mere subordinate. However, when directives clash between different levels of command, or when the humans in charge start losing control of the situation, he may exercise independent judgment to maximize his allies’ chances of survival within the limits of his programming.
When human law enforcement is performing their duty, Griff tends to assume the role of a “legal observer”, making sure there is minimum bodily harm inflicted on both law enforcement personals and the suspects. This corresponds with his programming regarding the integration into rank-and-file members of the team. To him, procedural justice and the crew’s trust towards the justice system is the priority in this situation. He is more inclined to remind the crew of the relevant policies and laws, using verbal intervention rather than physical force.

I’ve been playing CM since 2020, I really enjoy support roles and hoping for more flexibility between shipside and ground duties. Doctors/corpsmen and ComTech all have some mechanics that I love, would be great to be able to play a role that can fulfill the tasks of all these jobs. I also believe that playing as a synth provides more interesting roleplaying opportunities that allows human players to have more fun.
The most recent one that I remember was when I played as a combat correspondent, after faxing two articles I decided to assert the role of a daring war reporter who record every gruesome details of war between humans and xenos. So after getting the permission to deploy I started taking photos of injured marines and xenomorphs. Unfortunately after an encounter with a lurker, and being caught in a boiler bombardment I had to take surgery from the synth field doctor. I forgot her name, but after I told her of my goal here, she showed me a photo of myself, “Look! This is you on the surgery table!” and “Look! This one is your liver falling out, there’s even a little bit of sand on it!” And somehow that was just hilarious to me and a rather short but fun RP experience, where we discussed the possibility of me receiving a Pulitzer Price.
Another one was when I rolled survivor on LV-624, the colony synth saved my ass first by fixing the APC, then by carrying my ass away from the lurkers behind a small Cadeline manned by other survivors, before finding us the fuel tank for Sec Dome hold, and finally died to the pesky T-3s. God bless his soul.
Very familiar, I can build cades, fix APCs, cameras, hacking doors, build reinforced walls, also know how to repair the old armored vehicles before they got removed (sad).
I mostly play SO in CIC, tried XO once or twice, but admittedly not confident in my ability to give orders when shit hit the fan.
Very familiar, I can make all common meds, proper Unga juice, and do surgeries. I actually expected medical to be main role when I’m making this application
Mostly familiar. I know my way around Req, punching coordinates, loading pads, screaming at SOs to launch, ordering stuff etc. I played RO couple rounds before the time limit was added. Yet I found it boring to play as a CT (unless it’s no RO low pop)
Combat is always the last resort for Synth. I can perform combat when there is no other option and when I’m back into the corner without gun-wielding marines, forced to defend myself with CQC. Or, when I’m forced to do so to save Marines’ lives (to clear obstacles for rescue attempts rather than eliminating the threat completely).
I’m getting assaulted by unruly marines before any MP could get here, I can subdue and disarm them with non-lethal option.
A bald marine is pounced by runner/lurker in the backline, I can hit the Xenos to get them off of the marine, but cannot give chase and should carry the marine back to safety.
UPP boarded the Alamyer and is shooting anyone on sight. I should help the marines to get to safety or warn them of the UPP’s location, but should not go up and hit the commies with my melee weapons, let the marines with guns handle them while I tend to the wounded. Unless I’m left with no option, for instance UPP commandos found me in a narrow hallway with 1 crit marine and 1 dead-but-revivable marine on the ground. To protect the wounded I can fight back, using non-lethal if possible, but can kill them with melee if it’s too risky.
In case of a mutiny, I will act accordingly to my synth’s personality. I will warn the marines of the IC consequences should they choose to mutiny and that I do not recommend such action. However, I will remain passive and neutral during the cause of this bloodbath, while attempting to treat as many wounded as possible.
No ban in last month. I have MP Jobban from early 2022 (due to a LRP incident), unbanned as of 26/Jun/2023
I can post play hours If demanded since creating an established character is a recent thing for me. Not sure if you have seen me around before. I’ve indeed been playing since 2020 and got familiar with different roles (you can still find admin notes about me waaaaay back then when I was still a baldie lol).
