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:
Vanadi: y!
Artika/[personal profile] flightlessbird: y! she's not human, but pretty damn close, so MAYBE WITH SOME FUZZINESS OR MAYBE IT WORKS PERFECTLY IDK
Ashraf/[personal profile] healplz: y!

If you picked yes, please provide THREE personality traits that accurately describe your character:
Vanadi: Charismatic, extremely extroverted, flirty.
Artika: Entitled, curious, outspoken.
Ashraf: Calm, patient, caring.

If you picked yes, please describe your characters psychological profile in 2-4 sentences:
Vanadi: A little flighty and with a short attention span, but any positive response to his flirting is guaranteed to snag his attention for good. Generally desperate for attention, and he doesn't care where he gets it.
Artika: Somewhat undersocialized, she mostly just doesn't care to learn the right way to get along with people. She would rather bulldoze her will over them to get what she wants. Used to having things her way at home, she could use a few reminders now and then that she's not at home and not ~special~ anymore.
Ashraf: It's difficult to make him angry, and he's more likely to get curt and snippy than outright angry when it happens. He's worked hard to be of use to people as a healer, and is quietly confident in himself and his abilities as a result. He does his best to be helpful to anyone not perceived as a threat.

Can Adam use pheromones on your character to influence them:
Vanadi: oh yes. enhanced senses might even make him more susceptible.
Artika: yessss
Ashraf: yes again ON A ROLL
