Oh boy, this looks sweeeet :D

Definitely interested. Don't know if I could use my Turnip character, since I enjoy writing him so much, but he's fairly versatile in where he can turn up. I guess there's a reason why SUs can be accepted or declined anyhow, so - anyway, I'll be working on an SU and it'll hopefully be up by the end of today

Done!

Spoiler:
NAME: Turnip. Just Turnip. He doesn’t give any other real form of identification, unless it’s in a sickeningly sarcastic manner.

AGE: Around 20 or so, although he won’t give an exact date of birth.

GENDER: Male, though he gives the impression of not being entirely sure. This isn’t because of any particular doubt, more due to a lack of bothering to check.

IDENTIFICATION:

Turnip’s physical appearance is hidden, for the most part. Fortunately, though, his general clothing is both pretty consistent and fairly memorable. Image below, (in the spoiler) and a description will follow.

Spoiler:


The most memorable – and disturbing – feature of Turnip’s appearance is the strange helmet that covers his head at all times. Both the body and visor of the helmet are opaque from the outside, and the general consensus is that it is irremovable. He stands at probably a little over six feet - built decently, though slightly on the lean and lanky side. Turnip is no bodybuilder, but he has a reasonable level of strength. His main physical assets are instead his high level of dexterity and co-ordination. In terms of clothing, he prefers to wear practical defence gear - whatever the situation – with his signature brown trench coat covering it. He’s also likely to have some form of weaponry on his person; whether it’s a discreet-ish knife, handgun, or even an assault or sniper rifle if he’s feeling particularly comfortable. At any rate, he has various pockets, pouches, straps, a belt, boots and gloves, with various armour padding in the expected places – it’s a look that often either strongly attracts or completely dissuades attention, which if nothing else is just awkward.

BADGE SYMBOL: Turnip will roll with the outline of a turnip. Sleek, stylish, streamlined… vegetable.

PERSONALITY:

Generally not really loving, Turnip may form friendships quite well, but may also ask to kill someone every once in a while. Thankfully he asks, to which the usual answer is "No.". His appearance doesn’t help this, and as such he generally doesn’t make good first impressions. Screaming is not that rare. Despite this, and an obvious love of sarcasm, Turnip is actually really moral, and has a strong sense of logic - aside from the occasional mention of wanting to cheat at real life. He's pretty easy to get along with ordinarily, if you can stop screaming long enough to hold a coherent conversation with him, but anything serious and he'll make sure - or try to make sure - that justice is done. Well, justice from his point of view, anyhow.

However, this border-psychopath side of Turnip's is mostly in a non-serious manner. He enjoys jokes and gamer culture - perhaps too much - and will constantly reference other games. Almost non-stop, actually. He pretty much lives to drown people in his incessant references. He is most certainly a gamer, through-and-through, taking on tasks head-on either physically or mentally. Thing is, anything he doesn’t see as a task as such, or he doesn’t see as important to the game’s progression, he will probably ignore. He’s most suited to single-player RPGs, so multiplayer games – as this experiment is akin to – aren’t so much his forté, unless simple direct competition is involved.

In terms of a caring side, he doesn't appear to care for anything much. Turnip doesn't show much of himself to others. Naturally a bit of an introvert, on the surface he shows no interest in romance - in fact he shows disdain at the idea - and very little in friendship. There is something a little deep down in there, though - and if he happens to share it with you then he clearly holds you in high regard. Or pities you. Or is tricking you. Or, uh... something, anyway. Probably respect. Anyhow, he isn't likely to be pointing a weapon at you any time soon. (Unless, of course, he's tricking you, in which case he probably already is.)

PROVIDED HISTORY:

When Turnip speaks, listeners hear a clear English accent that could come from anyone of any background – slightly muffled and digitalised by his helmet, granted, but very much understandable. Due to his accent, people generally assume that Turnip is British English. However, his actual response when asked where he is from (“Uhh, England, I guess.”) is vague and dismissive.

Turnip's main history is something he'd rather not get into, and when he is questioned about it, he either changes the subject, evades the question by some other means, or outright refuses to answer it. The only straight answer that doesn’t ooze gut-wrenching sarcasm is that he doesn’t know, which doesn’t seem possible. Even if serious amnesia is to be considered, it’s obvious that not knowing can’t be the entire truth. Turnip has enough of his wits about him that he clearly knows something of his own past – onlookers, on the other hand, are apparently destined to remain clueless. He also denies any military history, and supplies that his combat ability comes from his love of gaming. As for the weapons: “I got them from, uh, somewhere.”

As far as his history with the Morality Game is concerned, Turnip reveals (thank god, he’s actually going to say something) that he is an avid gamer. Anything game-related, new games, console technology, virtual reality – he’s all for it, and he’ll find some way to get in on it. As much as the Morality Game is an experiment, it’s all a game for Turnip, and he’ll treat it as such.

“Eh, experiment thing, they can call it what they like. It’s some VR thing where people do tasks – if that’s not a game, I’ll eat my trench coat. Didn’t they say something about Pokémon?”

Turnip is aware of the various restrictions of the program, along with rules enforced and clothes that are to be assigned. It seems he is able to change into the turtleneck, black khakis and sneakers, etc. (I don’t know how he did it, just don’t ask) He doesn’t seem too comfortable with the rules, however, and supposedly, will refuse to remove his gloves and helmet. He also seems particularly attached to his Desert Eagle, but perhaps he can be swayed.

The Subject has suggested – though I think ‘threatened’ is probably a more accurate word – that you allow him to keep his headwear. He adds that he believes it was quite nice of him to type up an application in third-person, anyhow, as opposed to attempting to hack and pirate the system. He could have written the application in first person, of course, but that would have made more sense, and so is essentially completely unnecessary.

CLAIMED OCCUPATION(S): Turnip’s only response is a short laugh, followed by the phrase “vegetable extraordinaire”.

TASTES IN POKEMON:

Turnip is well aware of how the Pokémon games work, and prefers a strong, balanced team – with a tendency to move towards the more offensive side. He aims to have a fire, water, psychic, ground, electric and dragon type in his team, with various other useful secondary types like flying, ghost, fighting and grass mixed up somewhere in there. It all depends on what he can get his hands on, though.
For the record, his favourite Pokémon is Deoxys, specifically attack form.

STATISTIC SPREAD:

HP: 1
Attk: 9
Def: 8
Sp. Attk: 8
Sp. Def: 10
Speed: 3
Natr: 1

Turnip’s good in combat and great at games, but he doesn’t come off well to other people. Also, the Mainframe hates him. Maybe it caught wind of those comments about piracy.

Let me know if there are any issues or anything, seems like this could be a really nice RP to take part in.

I'm just a little confused... we're meant to use one post to do the task, yeah? And if we want to interact, we gotta organise that ourselves with a joint post?

Actually got a question before I post this app since depending on the answer I'd need to change some stuff. Does the universe of this rp (As in outside of the scenarios) have pokemon as within them, or do they only exist as games like they do in our world.

The main info post seemed to hint that they do exist, but the other apps seem as though they don't and if there's a clear answer in there I missed it.

Right, so... we should all get going on the preliminary log posts, and wait until later for the mission one. Cashmere excused because of an entry glitch, but apart from that, we're all heading for the common room?

Also, should I just plagiarise all of the background, text and font stuff to make my posts look similar? I guess this probably applies most to @PJBottomz because that's probably where I'd be copying from, (I'm not great at the fancy post stuff because I'm severely lazy) but yeah - just so long as that's alright with you. Then I'll get working on my post

The entry glitch was secretly because I had no idea that I was supposed to put them on the same post lol. As for the CSS, I literally just c/p'd Kyoshi's and edited it to fit a character instead of a mission page, so I'm sure it's free for grabs if s/he hasn't yelled at me. As someone with OCD, I'd love it if everyone used similar CSS because this RP has a theme and it would be fantastic if everyone did, but I'm not saying everyone has to.

[MARCOPOLO]
NAME: Marcus Stiller (Marc)
AGE: 20
GENDER: Male
BADGE SYMBOL: A celtic knot
CLAIMED OCCUPATION(S): Part-Time Pokemon Daycare Attendant/Student (14-17), Supermarket Assistant (17-19), Unemployed/Traveller (19 - current)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

IDENTIFICATION: Is of a fairly tall (6ft 1in) and thin build; very little body fat and only just average muscular definition. Hair is black and hangs down with little lift, reaching to top of the neck at the back but cut shorter with a vague pattern of spikes at the front. Faded remnants of light blue streaks that have not been renewed in some time are present. Eyes are dark green with light brown flecks. Upper right canine tooth is missing and replaced with a slightly off-colour porcelain emplacement.

Face is thin and slightly gaunt. Left side of lip and both ears bear holes and marks from now removed piercings, one small stud is still present above right eyebrow. An extremely slowly growing stubble length "beard" is usually present. Both hands bear small light scars consistent with several years handling young pokemon. Right arm and sections of right hand and right side of torso bear faded burn scars.

Wears a ring with a similar pattern to that provided for badge on right hand. Favours dark clothes; expressed approval of clothes provided for testing purposes.

PERSONALITY:
Has a deep, baritone voice that doesn't quite fit with his appearance. Tends to be rather casual and non-committal about most things; dislikes responsibility. Gets easily bored when forced to do things that do not conform with his interests. Very rarely seen without a slouch and his hands in his pockets. Fiddles with his ring as a tick brought about by nervousness or boredom.

Rather dark and sarcastic sense of humour. In spare time enjoys reading and browsing the internet or interacting with pokemon if he can find any. Slightly above average intelligence but poor knowledge of anything not involving pokemon.

Tends to be act disinterested around other humans, though does usually hang around them; he is actually shy and socially unsure and uses the indifference as a mask. Can be somewhat clingy when he does form a solid relationship with other humans. Has a somewhat explosive temper and is much more vocal when angry. Has a strong sense of morals and becomes angry quickly at injustice. Prefers the company of pokemon and is much more comfortable around them.

PROVIDED HISTORY:
Was born mid-december in a small town located in the English Midlands. Spent a lot of time interacting with pokemon on a local farm until his family moved up to the city of Leeds when he was 13. He was extremely bitter about this move and did not enjoy city life at all, much preferring the countryside and the pokemon that he used to play with out there.

Adjusted poorly in school, partly out of poor attention span and partly because of resentment over the move. Didn't have much luck making friends and had average grades in first year. These deteriorated during second year when he got a part time job at a local pokemon daycare. Marcus was much happier during this period as he was getting to interact with pokemon again and his changed outlook started to get him some friends, especially among other pokemon fans in the school. However his grades suffered as working with pokemon was always higher on his priorities than doing homework or revising for a test.

Left school at the age of 17 with very poor grades, did not acquire grades needed to continue onto A Levels and was distasteful at the idea of further education at college. Was forced to give up his job at the daycare centre to get a marginally better one at a local supermarket. Between the drudgery of his new job and again limited interaction with pokemon his mood again spiralled down into depression, though some friends from school remained.

At the age of 19 he abruptly quit his job, gathered together money he had been saving for quite some time and left home. For a while he travelled around the country, staying in what cheap housing he could find and volunteering at local RSPCP centres and other outlets that had him doing work outside or with pokemon. Money quickly began to run out and so he accepted the Morality Games placement to earn some money.

TASTES IN POKEMON: Extremely fond of pokemon that walk on four legs and are visually similar to canines or felines. Also fond of pokemon with darker colours. Favourite pokemon are Absol, Glaceon and Typhlosion in that order.
