    Craptastic's Character

    Post by Craptastic on Sun Jul 17, 2011 3:57 am

    Name: can’t be translated into English
    Nickname: called himself John Doe since he came to Earth, but will go by any nickname given to him
    Age: 622 years on his planet (2652 Earth years)
    Gender: ‘male’ by human standards
    Sexual Orientation: on his planet ‘females’ give the males an egg and then the ‘males’ will team off to help each other fertilize their egg (it’s complicated)
    Birth Planet: planet BSOD #1416 in the Equinox System
    Date of Birth: May 5 (if he calculated that right)
    Race: alien
    Languages: his language sounds like dupstep but there are a lot of underlying sounds that make up his speech. Which is why he sometimes sounds like he’s making a ‘wub’ sound when he speaks (it doesn’t effect his words so much the pronunciation), he taught himself English after years of studying.
    Height: 5’2”
    Weight: 98 lbs
    Appearance: gray skin made of scales too tiny to notice, 4 arms, long black hair (with a shaved part down the middle, it symbolizes something), antenna, long bat-like ears that have been gaged (since he has successfully hatched an egg). Snake bite piercing that is actually his disguises’ cloak control.
    Personality: curious enough to get him killed but lazy enough to not bother with things, acts like a 3 yr old and gets real quiet if he’s scared, serious or angry. He’s afraid of water but loves playing in blow-up kiddie pools. Sleeps in trees like a sloth when he is caring for an egg, or curled up to a heat source if not. He’s very shy and doesn’t talk much since he wants everyone to believe that he’s human, but get him comfortable with you and he’ll be your best friend. At times he looks intensely sad, this is because he is either homesick or still mourning the lost of his egg. He’s not completely used to only using two arms so he’s very bad at catching things.
    History: on his home planet his species is not at the top of the food chain there are four species that eat his. The ‘females’ are aquatic and they only breach land when they pass an egg along to a ‘male’. It takes years for a ‘female’ to create an egg, so they are extremely important. The ‘males’ wait by the shore line when the handoff time comes (once every 136 Earth years). The egg is so fragile that accidentally jostling it can cause it to burst, they are also a favorite food to more than one of the predators on his planet. If the egg breaks or gets eaten then the ‘male’ taking care of it has to shave a line down his head to symbolize his failure. John lost his egg while he went to wet his egg to keep it from drying out. His look out fell asleep and some of the small raptor-like creatures stole it from him and ran off. He gave chase but since he is built to last long periods of time upside down in trees he was clumsy and slow on ground. He left his planet in search of safer areas to raise an egg (since his race is endangered), he remembers a time when there were 31 ‘males’ taking care of one egg each since only 3 ‘females’ survived the journey to the shore line (predators and food killed most of them), it‘s a good thing that the percentage of ‘males’ hatching is only 15%. Anyway once he landed on Earth he began studying human so that he could create a remarkably accurate human disguise (learning English in the process). He plans on going back home to get an egg and take it back to Earth to see how raising it there will work. If it’s a success his people will migrate (unfortunately the ‘females’ can’t travel that far out of their ocean), if not he will never go back home.

    Any questions? I'll answer, promise.
    If anyone else would like to use this alien race please ask, i would love to have another persons take on this.

    So when the 'males' 'team off' does that mean one fertilizes the egg and then two watch over it?

    They help keep lookout when one leaves to refresh the water in the egg. It's one egg per creature, after fertilization you're pretty much on your own except when you have to leave the tree.

    Yeah, I was going to wait until everyone wanted to start before we pin-point where it needs to take place...I was thinking of asking to set it in Salt Lake City, Utah....cause it's pretty docile and not too big.

    Sounds okay, if you want it can be your character's kind that eats mine's eggs. So yours would understand the shaven head thing and if it's in your character's nature laugh/mock/pity him. Up to you though.
