    Character Information

    Name of the Synth Character you wish to play

    What is your Synthetic's Personality?
    José is an Second Generation synthetic unit, made for the Brazillian civillian market and repurposed for Military Use in the United States Marine Corps in the late 2170s.
    His personality is based on a 1930s to 1950s Brazillian steryotype, acting and interacting accordingly just like in the American propaganda of the time. He is lively, talkative, educated, sympathic and, in a way, charismatic, always having an comment ready to be made in the various situations he may get himself into.
    He generally like to spread outdated but interesting facts of his era, sometimes even emphasizing the superb relations of the United States of America with the "United States of Brazil", talking to the others around him about how the "The red scare" is important and about the danger of communism, saying all that while carrying a crude unconcerned tone, as if not even him know what exactly those facts were supposed to mean.
    He tries his best to keep himself well dressed, has a strong passion for cigars and a good glass of alcohol, even though he cant smoke or drink.
    He have storaged on his program a bunch of musics from his steryotypical time period, which he likes to quote sometimes.
    His original program was completely in portuguese, together with his vocal language. All that got updated when he entered in Military service, making his native language completely optional and the english predominant. His accent, thought, is still predominantly portuguese, assembling somewhat the accent that Carmen Miranda had when she sang in english.

    Why do you want to be a synthetic/why should we whitelist you?
    I believe I have enough experience to proceed with this Whitelist, and the need for trying something new is always uncontrollable for the human being, I would say.

    What is your most memorable interaction with a synthetic?
    Well, I had some memorable moments with them, even thought I cant remember which were the units in specific.
    One time, not long ago, I was working as SEA in the middle of a hijack, when an CLF soldier entered the room with a grenade, killed all people with me, and while I was unconscious, cuffed me and brought me to his dropship. When I arrive there, I discovered the reason he didn't killed me: He had an dead synthetic unit, and he thought I was the only one who could repair it back to its functions. I proceeded to repair it, and without taking much time, we started planning on taking the CLF down. In the end we succeeded on taking him down and putting the situation under control.

    Synthetic Character Story
    This is the story I have been able to made, I hope its good enough!


    How familiar are you with Engineering?
    I believe I have enough experience to be qualified, but I may also the time I spent in engineering roles:

    Maintenance Technician: 245 Hours

    Chief Engineer: 59.3 Hours

    Squad Combat Technician: 53.8 Hours

    How familiar are you with Command?
    Well, I also believe I have enough experience, here are my times:

    Executive Officer: 22 Hours

    Staff Officer: 35.4 Hours

    Squad Leader: 28 Hours

    Senior Enlisted Advisor: 267.4 Hours

    I also have experience on the Military Police department:

    Military Police: 169.4 Hours

    Military Police Warden: 29.6 Hours

    Chief of Military Police: 29.8 Hours

    How familiar are you with Medical?
    ...Long years working on it, probably the first department I got interested to, my times:

    Doctor: 71.3 Hours

    Squad Hospital Corpsman: 79.8 Hours

    Chief Medical Officer: 2.9 Hours

    Researcher: 8.7 Hours

    How familiar are you with Requisitions?
    Enough to know how to close a crate, my times:

    Cargo Technician: 19.4 Hours

    Requisitions Officer: 18.4 Hours

    What are some scenarios that you can perform combat in? Give us a brief example.
    Combat is only an option if its an emergencial situation which the synthetic unit or those around it may be in lethal danger.
    As so, an scenario I can imagine is if an synthetic unit is treating an severely wounded person, and a hostile entitity targets the patient being treated or the unit in question, The best thing to do would be make sure that the patient is safe and the unit in question will not suffer deep damages, attacking the hostile in order to, not kill him, but make sure he looses his focus or retreat, giving the synthetic unit enough time to move himself and his patient to an safer position.
    Another scenario I think combat would be necessary is the unlikely but possible situation that he is close to a small number of people, which they are in sight of the enemy and they are completely unarmed or unable to defend themselves, the synthetic unit would escort those people to the safest area possible, while keeping combat at minimal, only for making sure that they survive the incident.

    Mason, you've been my mentor since the first time I've ever played CM13. Of course you wouldn't remember, had a bland name default face but you taught me the ropes of the game. Afterwards you were there to teach me how to do medical, mostly the bald nurse stuff and other medical help. You were also with me when I played as an MP Cadet and first time as an SO. I honestly can't thank you enough, all those times when OOC wasn't necessary you were in character.

    I'm more than happy to give you the biggest +1 on your application but a review is needed.

    Story and Personality
    Your story and your description on how you will play your Synthetic look reasonable and doable. I specifically like the part about hating on commies and the bed red menace, it fits well into the universe we play in.

    Support roles
    I know you can do all these roles but the problem here is, we don't care about what or how many hours you've put into each specific role. So what I would like for you is to take each support role and give us a description for each on how well you take your experience to make you efficient in them. Example, medical, guy has 300 total damage, kit all areas with brute and burn, pop epi and give perxi, defib, get them on their feet. I give perxi that way it bypasses the potential oxy damage someone may have and it can get them awake faster instead of those pauses for CPR.

    Any examples in Engineering or Medical really, it's understandable Command doesn't have cheats and Req, maybe describe what you would prioritize. Mats, ammo, what would be in the first FOB crate drop?

    The answer(s) are satisfactory in my eyes but you do have some spelling/grammar mistakes. You said this was done at 2am so I'll assume you weird tired.

    I think you're a good person, you know your shit and I think this new experience can be well played if you stick to your character which I know you can. Good luck and try to focus on playing the support roles while your app is up, we'll be watching. . .

    Hello Jane, thank you for answering and of course, thank you for being so gentle with me, it was *my* pleasure teaching you and if you ever need my help again, I will be here to do so. I may start my review explaining in a more...complex way the personality in question.

    -/ Story and Personality /-

    I always had the idea of making a synthetic of brazillian nationality, but took a good while to think how I would impliment that idea. In the end, I've sorted it out: I would make an character which is not based on the Brazil's perspective of how a Brazillian would be, but a propagandistic steryotype of what the United States thought what the brazillian "image" meant in the 30s, 40s and 50s, which carried some of the most important points of history: The new york stock market crash, the Second World War and the peak of the Cold War, respectively. "José" is an common name in Brazil and was the first name of an american propaganda character, "José Carioca", made by Disney.
    The "communist" side of it comes from the fact that, internally in the three periods, Communism was becoming very famous at the press and "influential" on the Brazillian government, being used as a lame excuse for the estabilishment of "Getúlio Vargas" dictatorship in the 1930 to the 1940s, saying that "A State Of Exception was required to maintain the peace". Communist and facist groups got repressed and wiped at time and another democratic period began after the World War II in the hands of the General "Dutra", by 1946. That democratic period ended in 1964, with the estabilishment of a Military Dictatorship (Fully supported by the United States) to protect the country of "The uprising communism who was trying to take control of the country" (Which was basically the president of the time, "João Golart", being populist and wanting nothing more than give some better rights to workers and raise their salaries). As so, the idea of what the *United States* thought of the Brazil ( A country which they had high relations with and that was supposedly being taken by communists, who had a population of "Kind, lively, educated and people was ready to protect their freedom {Protect the United States interests}) doesn't sound not even a little off when you remember that lore-wise, the game is passing through a cold war with one of the biggest factions on the whole book (UPP), which is 110% communist.
    Still, the idea is that "José", thinks, interacts and act just like an brazillian steryotype of those periods, meaning that he still thinks they are "fighting" the Soviet Union, Brazil's capital is still Rio de Janeiro and the name of the country still is "United States of Brazil" (The country name in the past, quite similar to some other country, dont you think?), but as he never specifies anything, it sounds like he is simply talking about how he hate the UPP. The outfift comes directly from the character "José Carioca" in the propagandist american film "Saludos Amigos" ("Saludos" is in spanish, not portuguese, which I think is offensive and says a lot about how the USA doesn't really knew what he was talking about at the time).
    In summary, José fits in 2182 in the same way he did in 1952, because in the end, both periods are extremely similar. His personality working basically like "Maurice Chevalier" acting personality when he acted on the United States: An overexagerated parisien with an overexagerated accent that carried some of the most common steryotypes of the frenchmen at his time period.

    -/ Support Roles /-

    I thought that just filling the gaps with blank and simplistic phrases wouldn't be really saying what I can do. I like to prove it, and, in my imagination, my time spent would better say it, but of course I can talk a little about the experience I have.

    > Engineering: I believe I know to build everything the game can offer at the moment: APCs, airlocks, FOB construction, Camera Systems, I redecorated more than one time the medical department, the CIC, and made a lot of bars around the Almayer's maints, together with making field hospitals for doctors on the ground, which were complete with body scanners, beds and all machines / supplies that they would need to work with. I know the USS Almayer from its head to the tail, I know where each secret crate is storaged and how to get to them.

    > Medical: As I said before, the first department I got interested in, I know all procedures of surgery, triage and all medical machinery, I believe you can still find me around as SEA teaching new nurses and other doctors. Already saved people with more than 600 damage in my olden days. Now I am a bit rusty but Im sure I still know my way around it and can work very fast in times of need.

    > Command: I worked more than one time as CO, not only as the XO, but as the CE, the RO and the CMP. I have full experience as an Staff Officer and I know how to coordinate the troops as a Staff Officer. As Squad Leader, you will mostly find me at bravo making sure nobody is escaping from their cadeline duty.

    > Requisitions: I have enough experience to even be praised by some of the CTs who worked with me as RO, In a first supply drop crate, I would put basic ammunitions, two backpacks, one of flares and one of flashlights, a box of MREs, three Folding cade stacks, a cardboard box of C4 and another of claymores, three machetes, three Motion Detectors, the Mortar and I would certainly wait for a second so I could get some extra (free) Mortar shells to send with it. In the second drop I would send all the special ammunition, one box of each, other special munitions for special guns, such as SG drums, and more mortar shells, making sure that some ammo and supplies are storaged on the REQ racks so they can be easily sent as supplies for a possible frontline supply drop.

    Mason is a good friend of mine. Taught me a lot of things along the way. Honestly surprised he did not have the WL. Easy if not one of the easiest +1's from me.

    Yeah Mason is cool, I can +1 nice and easy, although I've seen him as SEA most of the time, I have got the utmost confidence in em and their ability to RP and support.

    Thank you for taking the time to submit your application. The personality and story are acceptable. The experience answers are lacking as hours does not necessarily equate to competence. With the recent issue IC while playing SEA that involved taking ML in your own hands with rubber bullets, there is some doubt about your ability to follow the synth guidelines. It is for that reason, this application is denied. You are welcome to reapply in one month with updated experience answers and if your IC actions improve.
