CASIE PERMISSION POST

I figured I should probably have one of these! So, for those characters that end up meeting Adam face to face—he has a Computer-Assisted Social Interaction Enhancer, aka CASIE. What this means? Let me copy a few sentences from the Deus Ex Wiki.

Provides its user with a direct monitor of behavior patterns and likely responses from conversational subjects. In real terms, this means the user can gain an insight into which conversational methods to employ in any situation. You can permanently ruin important conversations by saying the wrong thing, this aug gives you some inkling of what to pick. It can be upgraded with a pheromone emitting system that allows additional conversation options.


I'm going to simplify this for the sake of RP (in the videogame, some characters are also classfied as Alpha, Beta, or Omega personalities; then there's the persuasion meter...).

However, talking face to face with any character in a game environment (video too, though obviously he can't use pheromones there) would look like this to Adam if he were to activate his social enhancer:

CASIE SCREEN - It also means that the CASIE can pick up on involuntary physical reactions like pupil delation, heartrate, etc; making it easier for Adam to tell when your character is lying, for example. Other than that, the CASIE also analyzes voice volume, speech patterns, facial expressions, body language and environmental cues to gather data. If you're curious about what the CASIE looks like in action, you can check it out here (very mild spoilers).

Now, it's all up to you if you OOCly allow Adam to read your character better during conversations, so if you could fill out the following form, I'd really appreciate it!

Can Adam use his social enhancer on your character: (if you say no here, you don't have to fill out the other questions. Just lemme know! Feel free to point out if you think the CASIE might actually not work on your character because they're a robot, alien, or other supernatural being, too. 8)

If you picked yes, please provide THREE personality traits that accurately describe your character:
(this can be anything. In the above example, it's aggressive, excitable, insecure—but it can also be envious, defiant, emotional, pragmatic, confident, irrational, domineering, etc etc etc..... the list is endless. Just pick whatever describes your character best!)

If you picked yes, please describe your character's psychological profile in 2-4 sentences:
(Again, try to accurately and concisely describe how your character acts during a conversation. Two game examples so you know what I'm looking for:

"Slightly desperate at times. Feels misunderstood.
Has a tendency to think highly of himself and often needs to be brought down a notch. Tends to falsely inflate his own accomplishments. "

"Tends to dismiss other people and viewpoints, creating an emotional wall behind which he retreats. Views himself as an educator of lesser people. May be destabilized if his arguments are proven wrong. Can easily convert people to his cause. Is not used to resistance."
)

Can Adam use pheromones on your character to influence them:
(basically, if Adam does this, your character will be more inclined to agree with him. Simply yes or no! Or maybe?!)


And here's the form again for your copypasta pleasure:



Thank you!

Can Adam use his social enhancer on your character:
Yeah, sure. Go for it.

If you picked yes, please provide THREE personality traits that accurately describe your character:
Passive, observant, opportunist

If you picked yes, please describe your characters psychological profile in 2-4 sentences:
Likes to keep a calm and collected air to hide motives and emotions. Tends to alter his demeanor to appease the person he's talking to. Brushes off topics that he doesn't want to talk about or can't give an honest answer to. Trusting, but becomes wary if others are hiding information and motives.

Can Adam use pheromones on your character to influence them:
Sometimes, depending on the situation.

(also: I'm going to say that the CASIE mod will allow Adam to detect the alterations in brain wave patterns that come from Minato changing active Personae. Kind of a flag that he's switching up tactics in conversation or in battle.)

Can Adam use his social enhancer on your character:
The sensor will often go haywire on Adam when scanning Pidonus, since her mind isn't entirely human and doesn't react the same way on systematically-scannable levels.

If you picked yes, please provide THREE personality traits that accurately describe your character:
Overanalytic, Lustful, Uncertain

If you picked yes, please describe your characters psychological profile in 2-4 sentences:
"Racial Alignment: Chaotic Evil. Actual Alignment: Chaotic Neutral. Dump Stat: Wisdom. ERROR PARSING CHARACTER SHEET. Please examine for file corruption."

Can Adam use pheromones on your character to influence them:
The attempt may go odd simply because Pidonus doesn't have the same physiology as a human.

Can Adam use his social enhancer on your character: yes

If you picked yes, please provide THREE personality traits that accurately describe your character:
Opening, uncomfortable, confused

If you picked yes, please describe your characters psychological profile in 2-4 sentences:
Since the big party, Meliantha's head has been kind of... changed a bit. She had an incident there that shifted her entire mindset and she's reworking pretty much her entire theory of who she can be. Previously, due to experiences, she felt that she was about as unwanted as a great dane with bladder control issues, and now she's realizing that the prejudices back where she came from don't apply. It's an uncomfortable issue for her, changing 15 years of belief, so she's actually going to be pretty easy to manipulate.

Can Adam use pheromones on your character to influence them:
Congratulations: this is about the only way she CAN be manipulated. Psychic changes are not allowed, but the pheromones are differently-working, so go forth and use them.

Focused, teasing, confident.

If you picked yes, please describe your characters psychological profile in 2-4 sentences:
Haruto is sociable and likes helping people, but he is slow to get attached and prefers to keep his own counsel. Uses playful teasing as a means to maintain his image of strong and reliable. Impressed by capable, responsible individuals. A certain amount of allowing him to show off will go a long way toward improving his opinion of you. He tends to be practical in making decisions.

Can Adam use pheromones on your character to influence them:
Yes!

Sure thing.

If you picked yes, please provide THREE personality traits that accurately describe your character:
Sharp, RUDE opinionated, v. v. lazy.

If you picked yes, please describe your characters psychological profile in 2-4 sentences:
In true Silverberg fashion, Caesar honestly does try to remain reserved and unconcerned about things in general, it's just that it doesn't always work out for him that way (probably because omg teenagers). He suffers from an ego of the 'knows-it-all' variety and is often a sharp-tongued jerk about it, too. Otherwise, generally a good guy, even if he isn't an incredibly nice or polite one.

Can Adam use pheromones on your character to influence them:
Maybe! Really depends on the context. If it's something he definitely wouldn't agree with, he's likely to notice.

Can Adam use his social enhancer on your character:
y!

If you picked yes, please provide THREE personality traits that accurately describe your character:
Enthusiastic, curious, determined.

If you picked yes, please describe your characters psychological profile in 2-4 sentences:
Curiosity about others around her is her driving force, with an edge of a daredevil need for thrill-seeking, but nothing is more important to her than being competent and useful in her role. Less obvious is the compassion she feels for nearly everyone, as she keeps that covered under the cool kid act.

Can Adam use pheromones on your character to influence them:
y!

yes.

If you picked yes, please provide THREE personality traits that accurately describe your character:
bipolar, emotional, sarcastic.

If you picked yes, please describe your characters psychological profile in 2-4 sentences:
Conflicted, tries to be a coolkid but he's often a lot more distraught than he shows. Indecisive, typically angry or sarcastic, but can easily flip to depression. Rarely in a good mood, and when he is, it doesn't last long. Tends to insult others to distract himself from his own self-loathing.

Can Adam use his social enhancer on your character:
Yes for Sharpe with no caveats whatsoever. Man's an open-book.
Yes, with... conditions for Nikolai. Nikolai is a master of instinctive repression. He doesn't feel much because he's been hiding his emotions for his entire life and it gets to be second-nature to not really feel them after a while. I will just feel kind of foggy with him, I guess?

If you picked yes, please provide THREE personality traits that accurately describe your character:
Sharpe: Look up TV tropes, 'Jerk With a Heart of Gold'. OKAY uhm. Strong-willed/stubborn/confident/whatever, kind, and a soldier. 'Soldier' is a personality trait now.

Nikolai: Cipher. The most I can say is that he tries to be a decent person. 'Tries' and 'decent' changes all the time. He's complicated and I suck at single-word descriptions. Detached and quicksilver is all I can think of.

If you picked yes, please describe your characters psychological profile in 2-4 sentences:

Sharpe: He makes quick judgments and just ask quickly changes his mind if he finds that he's wrong. Nearly impossible to insult until you insult a woman in his presence. He's from the early 1800s so modernity flies over his head.

Nikolai: Likes mind-fucking people so they have no clear idea who or what he is. Doesn't talk much, but watches people a lot behind those sunglasses of his. Changes his reaction according to what initial assumptions people have of him, but mostly behaves like a Russian criminal. Likes making someone scared of him.

Can Adam use pheromones on your character to influence them:
No for both. Getting Sharpe to agree with you about anything when you don't have boobs is a war in itself. Nikolai doesn't agree with anyone on anything.

Yes, though Cable has enough experience with other forms of manipulation that he might notice if it's pushing him to go against his core beliefs.
