    RP - Interview of Wilhuff Tarkeen

    Post by Lunarisse Aspenstar on Sun Jan 04, 2015 4:05 pm

    SFRIM Offices. Bar.  Nahyeen VII, Zoar & Sons FactorySetting:  The main gathering area of the Society, the bar sports plush leather couches centered around a long coffee table. Low music plays songs from around the galaxy. The soft blue lighting is easy on the eyes, but still light enough to see what you're doing and where you're going. The shelves are filled haphazardly with bottles of spirits, clearly labeled. Luna's name is by the spiced wine and other vintages from around New Eden, with a few religious texts leaning against the bottles. The whiskeys shelf label has been taped over by Freya and Lucas, each bidding for ownership. There is a shelf with rum on it, with a fresh label reading 'Alexi'. Above that, is Nicoletta's shelf, with juice mixes and exotic wine, with a few bottles of absinthe here and there. Cocktail mixers and a jar of little umbrellas wrapped with a piece of tape reading 'Gottin's Dont Touch!!' is on her shelf. There is a shelf with a pair of bottles, one full of Absynth and the other full of Chocolate Irish Cream and etched "Lady Anise Tig'res of the Khanid Kingdom." A long line of bottles of Quafe are on a shelf with a "DON'T TOUCH!" sign by Rhoxy. Johanes has a shelf with brandies and cognac and a lone bottle of smurgleblaster. There are a few other shelves that hold overflow for now, waiting for new corp members to claim them.
    [ 2015.01.05 01:55:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote notes that upon his arrival he would have been escorted to this room.  This is interior part of the offices where only Society members can go.  The Entry Foyer is where she conducts business with outsiders  -c
    [ 2015.01.05 01:56:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is sitting on a plush chair covered by a pink blanket.  She is sipping hot cocoa and reading her datapad.
    [ 2015.01.05 01:56:34 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote straightens the seams of his jacket as he enters with a nod of thanks to the help who escorted him.
    [ 2015.01.05 01:57:29 ] Alexa de'Crux > /emote is usually on guard, but that's up to Luna.
    [ 2015.01.05 01:58:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote would have told Alexa of the meeting and asked Alexa to try baking something.
    [ 2015.01.05 01:58:40 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote places both hands behind his back, clasped loosely and  nods to Luna in an abbreviated bow. "Ma'am?"
    [ 2015.01.05 01:59:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Hello, Wilhuff.  Please, relax.  No ceremony is needed in here.
    [ 2015.01.05 01:59:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Sit down. *she smiles*
    [ 2015.01.05 02:00:26 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote selects a facing chair and sits in it, folding one leg over the other and leaning back, he gives Luna an open smile. "Thank you. This place looks well-lived in and full of memories."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:00:36 ] Alexa de'Crux > /emote exits the kitchen with a plate of cookies -- chocolate chip, and much improved over her last attempt.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:00:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote is curled up under the blanket.  Her feet aren't showing.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:01:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Oh good.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:01:09 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote gives Alexa the same nod and smile he originally gave to Luna.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:01:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I'll take a cookie too.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:01:31 ] Alexa de'Crux > /emote nods at Wilhuff, holding the cookies out for Luna and her guest.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:01:51 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote takes a cookie "Thank you, Miss."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:02:06 ] Alexa de'Crux > Certainly, sir.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:03:45 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote nibbles "Mmm. Homemade."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:04:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nibbles on the cookie. "mMm. Much better this time"
    [ 2015.01.05 02:04:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Alexa is our security offer Wilhuff.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:04:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > *officer
    [ 2015.01.05 02:04:11 ] Alexa de'Crux > /emote smiles a bit with pride.  "Thank you, ma'am."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:04:41 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > A woman of many talents, I see.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:04:58 ] Alexa de'Crux > /emote shuffles a bit.  "I...like to think so, sir."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:05:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote stiffens slightly "and surprises, I'd say."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:05:57 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > Oh?
    [ 2015.01.05 02:06:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives Alexa a meaningful glance.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:06:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But... enough of that."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:06:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says briskly "so what brings you to the Society? Tell me about yourself."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:06:42 ] Alexa de'Crux > /emote pauses, then quietly retreats, Luna's mild rebuke clear.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:08:13 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > Well... *he takes a moment to organise his thoughts* I'm a Tarkeen, from Dantan VII. My family have been serving local Holders as trading factors and similar aligned trades since Ni-Kunni left the homeworld.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:09:32 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > I'm the third son. I'm sure you understand. When we came into money, father decided to try something a little unusual and sponsored my testing. I came up positive. He paid my way into the University...
    [ 2015.01.05 02:09:48 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote makes a gesture suggesting these events lead to the current situation.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:11:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:11:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > How do you think you could contribute to the Society?
    [ 2015.01.05 02:12:29 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > I come from a good family with a history and tradition of working for a living. The University saw to it that I graduated with a reasonable grounding in capsuleer operations. I'm certain you can teach me far more than I can teach you...
    [ 2015.01.05 02:12:39 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > ...so I hope my loyalty and work ethic are some recompense.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:13:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods with a smile. "Oh i am not so sure it won't be mutual. I find we learn something from everyone who joins."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:14:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Sometimes, it is not a good lesson, but it is a still a lesson nonetheless."  She chuckles wryly and sips her cocoa.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:14:27 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > Well, I hope I can restore some faith if you've come to doubt the state of society in general.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:14:40 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote wrinkles his nose in a sudden grin.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:14:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chuck;les.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:15:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "To be brief, we are a good platform for a young trader or industrialist. We have two active POS's and two slated for expension.  We have five POCOS for Planetary Industry"
    [ 2015.01.05 02:15:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > We have two offices and a limited SRP program.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:16:23 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > That certainly ticks a few boxes. I hope advice and instruction are also included?
    [ 2015.01.05 02:17:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chuckles. "Well.. we are a friendly bunch. We do not have a formal instruction process."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:18:09 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > Ah... I doubt I will miss the collegiate environment unduly.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:18:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Now... my fellow Director Nicoletta Mithra requires I ask four questions of all applicants.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:18:52 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote nods
    [ 2015.01.05 02:18:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > We've actually already done the first.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:19:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Or covered it rather.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:19:08 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > Oh?
    [ 2015.01.05 02:19:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > As an Amarr corporation, we do have a religious component.  We hope by our words and actions to spread the word of God.  There are more ways to reclaim than simply by the Sword.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:20:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > We even have a channel, called the Good Word
    [ 2015.01.05 02:20:10 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > All sorts of villians and heathens visit us there.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:20:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:20:15 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > Indeed. I have subscribed.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:20:35 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote waggles his eyebrows "Although I doubt mine is the darkest soul to enter."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:20:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Good.  it is not mandatory that you be on it, but it is encouraged.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:20:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > ((the only MANDATORY channel is SFRIM OOC))
    [ 2015.01.05 02:22:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > The first question is why are you interestedin SFRIM.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:22:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles. "I think we've covered that as I said"
    [ 2015.01.05 02:22:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The second is, what is the essence of the Amarr faith to you"
    [ 2015.01.05 02:23:07 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > Service.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:23:53 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > I leave the Word to priests and focus on Service for myself. Service to God, Service to Empire and Service to mankind. Times are dark enough.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:24:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods with a satisfied look on her face.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:24:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote pulls out her datapad and mutters "I can never quite remember how to word the third question"  She bites her lip slightly as she peruses her files on the datapad.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:25:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Ah! here it is."  She brightens.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:25:34 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote smiles, despite himself.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:25:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote reads by rote "is it more important to be born of Amarr blood or to live a righteous life in fear of God?"
    [ 2015.01.05 02:25:58 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > More important to whom?
    [ 2015.01.05 02:27:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > To God.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:27:47 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > Oh... Well... Omir Sarakusa was born of Amarr blood, wasn't he? I should think God weighs our hearts, not our hides.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:29:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. "That is the view of the Society, and one reason why it is not for every member of the Faith who may have a more narrow view."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:30:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Alright, last question."  She glances at the datapad again.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:30:09 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > I, uh, it makes me a little uncomfortable to proclaim what I think is important to God. But I would have to loathe myself thoroughly if I thought a life of works unimportant.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:31:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. "I think Faith without works is rather.... lacking in substance. So I quite agree":
    [ 2015.01.05 02:31:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote coughs slightly, getting back on track "What is your view of slavery and the purpose of it"
    [ 2015.01.05 02:31:24 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote smiles, relaxing a little.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:32:14 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > I'm a traditionalist, Ma'am. Slavery is a sanctified contract between God and Man and it exists to provide instruction and betterment for those whose upbringing was so poor as to have been deficient in religious instruction.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:32:36 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > It is, however, not really something a Tarkeen has had to trouble themselves with, historically. We are not a Holder family.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:33:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. "can you tell me more about... "tarkeens" I confess.. I am unfamiliar with that term."  She blushes.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:34:34 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > I'm a Tarkeen, Ma'am. It's a family name. We aren't covered in glory but we make up for it with respectability.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:34:37 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote smiles
    [ 2015.01.05 02:37:30 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Alright."  After a sip of her cocoa "Well.. you seem like you'd make a good asset for us, I'v be happy to accept your application.  Bearing in mind your status, I will let you know that very little is mandatory here.  Participate as you -c
    [ 2015.01.05 02:37:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > see best suits your time and talents."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:37:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Would you still like to join us?:
    [ 2015.01.05 02:37:59 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > Thank you, I'm excited to roll my sleeves up and make something of myself here.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:38:07 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > And yes, I'm very interested.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:39:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives a bright smile. "Then welcome aboard."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:40:35 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote nods with a broad smile. "Thank you. I hope you'll bear with me as I acclimate."
    [ 2015.01.05 02:43:26 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Of course.  You'll forgive me, if I retire for the night,  But do make yourself comfortable.  I will send a mail about letting people know you joined with my semi periodic corp update.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:43:49 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > Of course, Ma'am. And thank you for the opportunity.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:43:59 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote stands and offers her a hand up.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:44:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > ((some prior updates if you wish to read: http://sfrim.forumotion.com/f2-corporation-headquarters )
    [ 2015.01.05 02:44:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote slips off the couch,  She is wearing fuzzy pink slippers and casual clothes.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:44:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > And please, in here, Lunarisse is fine,.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:44:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote jerks her head towards the foyer,. "Out there and on channels keep the formality"
    [ 2015.01.05 02:45:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:45:09 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > Certainly. Do, please, call me Wilhuff, Lunarisse.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:45:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Good night Wilhuff."  She makes her way to the sleeping quarters.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:45:39 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > Good night, Lunarisse.
    [ 2015.01.05 02:46:11 ] Wilhuff Tarkeen > /emote pulls out a datapad, looks around for a quiet spot and settles down to some background reading.
