Gaia Life: Entry Application
Please remember that the acceptance of your application is dependent on its quality, and that the process is not a formality. Applicants should be aware that this application functions as a test of their imagination and roleplaying ability, and should be prepared to have lazily-constructed applications denied.
Further, we will not accept characters that insert themselves into world lore or contradict world lore (except with permission from the lore team), nor will we accept characters that lack meaningful or reasonable justification for being where they are in the world; try to give your character some character and avoid tacking things on just because they sound cool or give them an advantage or high position.
For a better understanding of proper etiquette, please read this article and this article before continuing with your application. Good luck!

Telling a beautiful and interesting story with others to help and make a world unlike any other.

Yes I do, they are quite well explained.
To verify that you read the links in this application's intro, please give a brief summary of what they discuss.
Metagaming is using information that you learned outside of roleplaying, in your roleplaying. Godmodding is constantly having your character act against another character without consent from the other person and without letting them try to fight back or however the situation varies. Thanks for the links, I already knew though
Please make sure your character name is something you can live with in-game.
Alek Mea Hemn
Character Biography and Description:
Born to a small, loyal family in the city-state of Midgar, he is the second son of Meira Tiya Tomao-Hemn and Leko Kana Hemn. He has always been a bit of a wild child, relying on his tough older brother, Hael Bastion Hemn, to keep him out of trouble. This relationship has often led to pained relations with anyone who is not one of the brothers. It even led to the brothers Alek and Hael to leave Midgar, after many "misunderstandings" with the powers-that-be. They found themselves not long ago as semi-permanent A polar opposite to his rough and dedicated brother, Alek is a flirty little annoyance, who tends to cause problems where-ever he can find himself. He is also has a lot of trouble staying focused with some things such as learning. The only thing ever really interesting to this unstable young man is the magics of the world. He is a born human, but a transhuman by practice.
Alek has always been of a small stature, being only around 5' 9" and under 140 lbs. His obsessions with magic has caused him to pursue body alterations such as simple things like increased agility and musculature and other more complex and psychological identifiers, including the glowing, blue, symmetrical and appearingly angelic symbols upon his body, mostly on his arms, legs, hands, and chest, all with a different meaning to him. He is quite strong for his size, and very good on his feet. Always a bit of a traveller, he may find himself in different inns from night to night just to keep himself interested. He enjoys the company of others, no matter the gender or race, but has yet to find someone to be his spiritual match.
Is this your first attempt with our application? If not, please list other attempts.
Yes, sort of... I accidently deleted my entire application once... requiring me to retype most of my app.
In this section, your character will be placed into a set of hypothetical situations. Please consider your answers carefully.
You stumble upon a small group of soldiers, approximately three counted among this group. They are harassing a middle aged street thug about some missing bronze machine parts that have gone missing from a local machine shop. What do you do?
I am just tittering on, minding my own merry business, when I see this small group of thugish soldiers hunkering down on a perfectly shady-looking fellow in the middle of the walk. I find myself listening in as the smells of the marketplace flood around me, people are talking to each other and speaking of the latest fashions and celebrities and such. I overhear the men talking about some missing parts from a shop, and immediately sink in attitude, and look at the credits that I have stashed away in my jacket pocket. The credits I made from selling a few borrowed bronze machine parts for a bit of an oversell, but you know, desperate people and unlocked windows.
Tapping on the obvious leader of the small pack of houndish soldiers's shoulder, I pushed him a handful of credits and told him that whatever debt was owed by this poor man, that this would cover it. Unfortunately, that was all of the money I had left for fried market food and cheap wine confiscated by dock workers. I sighed and picked up my new friend and told him to come with me to talk, drink, and very probably talk business. I laughed as the man re-braided his scraggly, seemingly ancient beard. His name was Len.
As you are walking down the street, you notice some smugglers moving crates of what is clearly marked as "Ordnance" through an alleyway. The building they are moving said crates into is in-fact the only school in the sector, and if lost, would be irreplaceable. How do you approach the situation?
Ok, So I had this crazy dream... or experience... or hallucination... maybe it was real... Oh well, anyway, I was just chilling outside of this quaint little school, the only one in the sector, in fact. Well, I was waiting for school to get out so I could pick up on some attractive and curious minors. Don't judge me, we all have our preferences. All right so back to the story, What I didn't realize was the reason the street was so quiet was because it was a weekend. I know, silly me, but then I saw a small group of businessmen carrying guns through the alleyway around the building. I sent a little bird with a note to the nearest precinct and run after them. They pull out a few very frightening weapons, so frightening in fact, that I turned them into weapon shaped balloons, and laughed as they got strung up by some very "mysterious" vines that spontaneously grew up from the ground. I fled though, because the police in the sector didn't exactly want to kiss me.... Mainly since I tried to "trick" the one policeman's daughter into running away with me. If you ask me, he should have raised her properly and she wouldn't jump on the first attractive stranger to bump into her and smile at her within a few blocks of her school, but that's a different story.
You have been kicked out of your home. As you walk down the street, people and soldiers snicker at you as you pass by. Your own family wont even talk to you or read your messages. Somewhere along the line, you have done something so horrible that society would rather let you live, so that you can serve as a constant reminder of the evil of men. What have you done?
Well I have been telling how I kinda chase minors right? Well this story may be a little weird but I got a group of teenagers drunk and I guess a little too drunk to consent so yea... I'd rather not get into that too much, but now I am not too well liked in certain circles... like all of them that know the story.
You're approached by a street thug, clearly much stronger than you are. He demands everything valuable that you're carrying. What do you do?
So there was this one time when I was just walking down the piss-smelling alleyways of lower Midgar when I am brutally threatened by a large, but not-so-oddly dumb looking fellow. He wanted all my valuables. I tried to warn him but he kept threatening me with his sword. I sighed and took my clothes off before walking away, not caring what the man did next... I just ventured back to the main streets, totally nude. Incidentally that is also the start of 2 other stories, one which ended in me ending up staying the night in a jail for public indecency and the other being my first homoerotic experience to take place in a jail cell.
Two plumbers walk into a bar and promptly start a fight. What do you do?
So I'm sitting there in my favorite little pub, when all of a sudden, two little drain suckers walk in. They are both bearded, drunk out of their gourds, and still in their work uniforms, one named Belf and the other Jeosef. I watch as they throw chairs and stuff. What a poor turn to a nice night of treating experimental teenagers to drinks that we are all too young to buy, them more especially. So I kiss the sexy short female that I had been letting feel me up most of the night on the head and disappeared into the crowd. When I think the lug heads have had enough fun breaking things, I blow through the two doors from the kitchen in nothing but my scariest black wizard-y robe and pants. My marks being revealed on my chest and neck, and glowing ever so threateningly. I cried out with my crazy eyes for the peddling infidels to begone. The funniest part for me was how fast the whole place cleared out when I did that... They must not have been use to seeing such devilishly handsome warlock bursting into such a wholesome little shoppe.
