    RP - Membership Interview of Danta Vokan

    Post by Lunarisse Aspenstar on Sun Aug 03, 2014 5:18 pm

    Location: 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 are a few other shelves that hold overflow for now, waiting for new corp members to claim them.Exits: Lounge, Kitchen
    [ 2014.07.29 02:15:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods and gives a faint smile.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:15:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > So whereabouts are you from?
    [ 2014.07.29 02:16:58 ] Danta Vokan > I'm hoping we can come to a mutually beneficial agreement here....ah ha, story of my life....right, well, I was born a poor Minmatar child *pauses* Nah, just messing with you, hope you're a good sport...
    [ 2014.07.29 02:17:44 ] Danta Vokan > seriously though, I've bunked on a lot of spaceports over most of my childhood
    [ 2014.07.29 02:17:52 ] Danta Vokan > mostly in the Sarum Family Holdings
    [ 2014.07.29 02:18:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote stiffens slightly and sips her wine slowly, pondering.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:20:09 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I see.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:20:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Well. Director Mithra tells me your credentials are impeccable.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:21:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > So why don't we move into the Q and A phase of the interview? *gives Danta a level look with her blue eyes*
    [ 2014.07.29 02:21:50 ] Danta Vokan > /emote grins > As you wish....I'll keep it short and sweet for you, eh? I'm sure you're a busy woman with that level gaze
    [ 2014.07.29 02:22:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote 's eyes flicker with some expression that is hard to read... and then she says briskly "Why are you interested in the Society rather than.. say.... a Gallente used ship dealer?"
    [ 2014.07.29 02:24:27 ] Danta Vokan > Gallente? Ha! If they could actually engineer themselves out of a wet grain sack, I'd be interested....as it stands though, I thought I should work with the best tech in the Cluster....nothing more sturdy than an Amarr armor plate, don't you know
    [ 2014.07.29 02:25:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > mMm
    [ 2014.07.29 02:25:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sips her wine and tils her head slightly.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:27:01 ] Danta Vokan > Besides, Sacred Duty to uphold the Empire, don't you know..spread the Good Word about the God-given talents our engineers exhibit....and if I make an ISK or two, I give half back in charity, the Empire profits, and so do I
    [ 2014.07.29 02:27:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gazes impassively at Danta and listens.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:29:02 ] Danta Vokan > /emote sits back a bit, not breaking either the grin, or the gaze back at her
    [ 2014.07.29 02:29:32 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > I am still waiting Mr. Vokan.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:29:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Why SFRIM?
    [ 2014.07.29 02:29:47 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles cheerily.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:30:57 ] Danta Vokan > I see you're a hard sell, alright, I'll be straight with you....I'm not a fighter...You've got PIE, CVA, all sorts of folks flying around and blowing up the enemies of the Empire...that's not me. I'd rather keep the homefront running, and that's(...)
    [ 2014.07.29 02:31:05 ] Danta Vokan > where I heard about SFRIM
    [ 2014.07.29 02:31:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods and sips her wine.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:32:27 ] Danta Vokan > yeah, I could go Quartermaster for the Navy...but I think we can both agree I'd be a horrible fit there
    [ 2014.07.29 02:32:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote lets out an involuntary chuckle.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:33:25 ] Danta Vokan > You're the first folks I heard about once I started looking around that were big on the Homefront operations
    [ 2014.07.29 02:35:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:35:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > How do you think we can work together?
    [ 2014.07.29 02:37:13 ] Danta Vokan > Well, here's the fun part...I'm a versatile sort of guy...while tradeskills are my forte, when it comes to learning, they said my brain was a sponge once they started downloading things in
    [ 2014.07.29 02:37:30 ] Danta Vokan > I can learn the basics up here as fast as anyone
    [ 2014.07.29 02:38:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods and smiles.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:38:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Ok....
    [ 2014.07.29 02:38:56 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Now SFRIM besides being the collectin of assorted industrial types..
    [ 2014.07.29 02:39:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > is also a religious corporation
    [ 2014.07.29 02:39:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Director Mithra, therefore, requires that i ask the following three questions of all applicants
    [ 2014.07.29 02:39:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles sweetly.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:40:21 ] Danta Vokan > /emote listens, grin turning to a smile...oddly less cocky looking
    [ 2014.07.29 02:41:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What is the essence of the Amarr faith?"
    [ 2014.07.29 02:41:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote sips her wine casually.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:43:59 ] Danta Vokan > /emote leans back slighlty, "If I remember correctly...there was a scripture about cultivating the Spirit of Man...while some might say that only applies to heathens and non-believers...well, family got me through a lot...did a lot of cultivating (...)
    [ 2014.07.29 02:45:26 ] Danta Vokan > of my spirit. So the esscence? Family...we've got God at the head of it...and we get to treat each other as such....even if that means whapping your brother's head if he's stupid."
    [ 2014.07.29 02:46:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote lets out an involuntary chuckle at the last.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:46:47 ] Danta Vokan > By the brother...I meant the Min....yeah, looks like you got it...
    [ 2014.07.29 02:47:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > mMm.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:47:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shakes her head slightly with amusement, loosening up but bemused.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:47:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Ok... second question
    [ 2014.07.29 02:48:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > and I wonder about both halves of this question with you *she mutters sotto voice*
    [ 2014.07.29 02:48:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Is it more important to be born of Amarr blood or to live a righteous life in fear of god"
    [ 2014.07.29 02:50:05 ] Danta Vokan > Here's my take on that...you're going to get to heaven easier than I will....I've accepted that, it's fine by me...so I've got to work off my debt a bit more 'cause of my bloodline....okay! God wouldn't give me a challenge I can't handle
    [ 2014.07.29 02:51:20 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly. "I am sure that is so."
    [ 2014.07.29 02:51:53 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Last question. What is your view of slavery and the purpose of it?
    [ 2014.07.29 02:52:20 ] Danta Vokan > ah ha.....hot button topic....okay then
    [ 2014.07.29 02:52:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > mMm
    [ 2014.07.29 02:52:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Hot button?
    [ 2014.07.29 02:52:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > This is the Empire, Mr. Vokan.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:52:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles sweetly.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:53:37 ] Danta Vokan > and the Empress just did a big thing on letting a generation of slaves go, as far as I heard....if my information was incorrect, I'll be happy to be corrected
    [ 2014.07.29 02:53:51 ] Danta Vokan > but doing that I'm sure ruffled some feathers of the Heirs
    [ 2014.07.29 02:54:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote drinks her wine, listening.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:54:53 ] Danta Vokan > Was it good or bad? Hey, I don't judge, that's God's perrogative....but what it did here, yeah, it turned it into a hot button issue, even for our Empire
    [ 2014.07.29 02:55:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:56:17 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > What do you think the purpose of the continued existence of the institution to be?
    [ 2014.07.29 02:56:37 ] Danta Vokan > though to get to your question...and my opinion I'm not even sure is the popular one....we are all slaves to God. Our works done on this...plane, world, whatever, bring us closer to Him....our actions and our thoughts are our works
    [ 2014.07.29 02:57:34 ] Danta Vokan > continued existance? Some people need concrete examples of the process I just described....they do not realize the impact of their works...so they are given a more concrete example...physical labor in the service of another
    [ 2014.07.29 02:57:55 ] Danta Vokan > Now don't get me wrong here....I don't see God beating a fellow up for not working....
    [ 2014.07.29 02:58:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly.
    [ 2014.07.29 02:58:27 ] Danta Vokan > I don't believe in abuse of slaves at all, is what I'm saying
    [ 2014.07.29 02:58:56 ] Danta Vokan > but learning these eternal lessons through concrete examples? It's doing God's Will
    [ 2014.07.29 02:59:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods "I see. And thank you for your thoughtful answer."
    [ 2014.07.29 02:59:42 ] Danta Vokan > Yeah....well, they said my face would never get me anywhere, so I had to be a bit more thoughtful....
    [ 2014.07.29 03:00:10 ] Danta Vokan > /emote smiles once more, though in his eyes the compliment causes a shine
    [ 2014.07.29 03:00:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chuckles slightly.
    [ 2014.07.29 03:00:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well I appreciate your time Mr. Vokan. I will consult with the other directorsand let you know our decision."
    [ 2014.07.29 03:01:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "in the meantime, here is a credit chit for a room at the station and a meal."
    [ 2014.07.29 03:01:58 ] Danta Vokan > Well thank you!
    [ 2014.07.29 03:02:48 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles.
    [ 2014.07.29 03:02:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The bar staff will show you the way out"
    [ 2014.07.29 03:03:33 ] Danta Vokan > /emote stands, and follow the staff out
