Dream: To become immortal, and live his life among the stars. Forever.

History:
Ages 0-5: Ethan was born in the small town known as Fife, within the country of Scotland. His birth date was the 2nd of March, 1995. He was born into an already-wealthy family, as his mother was a famous author worldwide, and his father was a well-known actor, being in many action films. Ethan had a brother, Iain, who was two years older than Ethan was. For the first five years of Ethan's life, nothing much happened, obviously. He gained a curiosity for aliens and space. His parents, however didn't pay much attention, and left him and Iain to do there things.
Ages 6-10: From the age of six, he was already in Primary School. He would spend free time reading books on aliens and space. He continued this obsession throughout his first years in primary. Ethan was always more interested in what happened in London at this age, as it had been reported that a spaceship had crashed, hitting Big Ben.
Ages 11-15: At this age, he tried to focus on something more related to Earth. So, he set his mind on becoming a famous engineer. The more he thought about this, though, the more excited he got, as he realised he could possibly invent amazing things - such as spaceships, finally giving him the chance to go up and find any aliens. And his excitement only grew as he heard of another spaceship visiting London again, only for some man called 'The Doctor' to save everyone. And then again, when a Christmas Star appeared in the sky, attacking the people of London. Along with that, was apparently a spaceship called 'The Titanic' almost fell onto the Buckingham Palace.
Ages 16-20: Studying hard at school, Ethan left at the age of 17, seeing as he had the grades he needed to attend a University known as 'Heriott Watt.' He spent his time studying hard for the Engineering course, along with keeping his ear pointed at the TV, incase any more alien sightings or happenings were going on, making sure to make a mental note of them, always smiling whenever he heard something about it.
Age 21: The year when Ethan's life change. 2016: his 21st birthday. He went out for a walk. A long walk, seeing as he had a little free time until his final exams, seeing as it was his fourth and final year. He walked for a good five hours, until he was in the middle of nowhere - his favourite place. He kind of liked getting lost. It meant adventure, fear, and most of all, excitement. When he was lost, anything could happen. He could meet someone new, he could wander into another town and discover a drink he had never heard of before.. anything. Nothing particularly exciting, though.. or, so he though. You see, on this night, something happened that completely changed his life. For better, mind you. Or, at least he thought so.
Aliens abducted him. They flew over him and teleported him from the ground onto their ship, and off they went. When he was teleported on, he noticed that he wasn't in a cage, or in a sort of weird tube. He also noticed the aliens didn't really look.. alien. They looked kind of similar to a human, the only difference being a weird black squiggly mark on the side of their faces, being a little different. There were three of them, and only one of them came to greet Ethan. He didn't say why they abducted him, nor did he say where Ethan was, he just said 'Hello, thanking for being a part of our experime-' But he was interrupted by the head of the ship suddenly hitting the face of another planet.
Ethan woke up an hour or two later.. he didn't know, all he knew, or thought he knew, was that he was on Earth. They were only in the air for maybe ten seconds before they crashed, so there was no way they could have hit anything else, not even the moon. He got to his feet to scan the area.. to his surprise, there wasn't much damage. There was also no sight of the weird guys who were piloting the ship, either. All he could see was a little droid finishing up repairs of the ship. He figured that was why it all looked as good as it was before he got knocked out by the impact of the crash.. but, what happened to the other guys.. did they say he was their experiment?
He wasn't sure he wanted to wait around for answers, so Ethan walked towards the front of the ship, where the control panel was, and looked at the many buttons and levers that must have controlled the ship.. he didn't recognise much of it, until he saw the steering wheel. It basically looked like one right off of a pirate ship.. apart from all metal, and with a few buttons at the center. He stood infront of the wheel for a good few minutes, until he heard a clicking noise, it being the repair droid, signaling it was finished. Ethan took a wild guess that that was what the green light coming from it was indicating. After a game of eenie-meenie-minie-moe with the buttons, he pressed one, and the ship took off into space almost instantly being above the planet it crashed into.. which was obviously not Earth. Nor was it any other planet within the Solar System that he knew..
After a few minutes, he pressed one of the other buttons on the wheel, and within seconds, the ship was traveling through space at a speed faster than light. He knew that it wouldn't take it back home.. he could feel it in his gut.. the feeling of excitement. The feeling of adventure. The feeling.. of being lost.
Age 22: A year later, Ethan had accomplished.. a fair few things. The nearest planet was inhabited by odd fish-people, who provided Ethan with a translator. They basically gave him an ear plug, and gave him something to eat, which contained hundreds of nanobots, all of them reforming into a 'language chameleon' down in his throat, meaning that whoever he spoke to, the 'language chameleon' would change every word he said, into the language that the receiver was speaking. Along with this, Ethan learned about on of the valuables there was in the small pile of tech he didn't understand: a short-range teleport, which allows him to teleport wherever he wants within a 125m radius.
He had learned how to fly the ship by reading manuals that were aboard it, and decided to keep it for himself.
Of course, Ethan was extremely excited about meeting this new species, so he spent around a month on their planet learning all about them, living with them, eating with them, and even praying with them to their gods. After this month, he took off on the KLF, and traveled around space. He didn't really land on any other planets, unless he was taking trips back to the planet of the fish-people for more food and supplies, but he basically spent the whole year off land, learning about stars in the sky, and reading all the manuals there was on the bookshelf, him gaining knowledge on each of the devices he didn't understand, all of them being contained within a machine at the back of the ship. In total, there were around 12 of these devices, although Ethan decided to sell them all off to anyone willing to buy, apart from the teleport, as he thought it would come in useful at some point.
Of course, he's now he has decided he'd like to visit other planets. He goes around landing on whatever ever planet sounds interesting, and learns whatever he can. As far as knowledge of all of the universe goes, Ethan still knows next to nothing. He only knows most of what he knows due to the manuals and history books left on the ship that he randomly stole.

HOW DID YOU FIND US?: I was going to write a story about a timelord I thought up, but decided it better to roleplay with the character, and so I found this site ^_^


---------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------
This section is for you to show us your roleplaying skills. What is going to happen is you will read a standard problem for your character to react with. What we are looking for is a proper Roleplay reply, standard character, explaining what you would do in the situation.

Rules: Please make your response at least a six to nine sentence paragraph.
Please make your responses in 3rd` person (ex: Sonya blinks her eyes.)
You need to explain your roleplay, use as many details as you possibly can to describe what you are doing and what is going on around you.



The Doctor is stuck under a flickering streetlamp, you are on the opposite side of the street. It's midnight, no moon or stars, the only lights around are the lamp the Doctor is under, and the light in front of a closed store you stand under.

The only way to the Doctor is to cross the dark street, easy, right? Wrong. This planet is well-known for being infested with Vashta Nerada. Any shadow anywhere could be infested with them. You have a small pack on your back with several items in it that you could use to get to him.

A carrot
The Doctor's Sonic screwdriver
A chicken leg
A flashlight
Book of matches
A rubber duck
a raincoat


Ethan's eyes scanned the area, his eyes taking in all the detail they could, although most of the detail was just the shadows that blocked out most of the street. He was about to simply step forward, when he remembered that someone had mentioned to him earlier about the 'piranha's of the air'. The little pests that took refuge in shadows, waiting for someone to fall into them, so that they could feast. The last thing Ethan wanted was to be eaten alive.. or rather for that strange man along the street to meet that very fate. Quickly, Ethan slipped the small pack off of his back, while keeping an eye on The Doctor, just to make sure he didn't suddenly turn to bones. He slipped a hand into the pack, feeling around for any items of use, before pulling out a bright, yellow raincoat. He looked at it for a good two seconds, before shrugging and slipping it on over his 'Legend of Zelda' limited edition hooded top, and then continuing his search. He then pulled out two items: a chicken leg and a carrot. He knew from the information he was given that the Vashta Nerada were probably carnivorous, so they wouldn't be interested in the orange vegetable. He stuck it in his mouth, and kept it held in with his teeth, while placing the chicken leg on the ground, wanting to use it to distract the microscopic-creatures later on.

He emptied the pack, seeing on the ground the flashlight, a book of matches, a rubber duck, and a kind of sonic device. He took this moment to lift his head, checking to see if The Doctor was still up for saving, and smiled to see that the timelord still had his flesh.

'Okay.. time for action..' Ethan said out loud, having mentally thought out a way of saving the man under the lamp. He slipped the sonic screwdriver and rubber duck back into the pack, before slipping back onto his back. He then picked up the chicken leg, before tossing it as far as he could into the shadows, hoping it would buy him a little time. He took this time to switch on the flashlight, holding it firmly in his right hand. He then lit one of the matches with his other hand, suddenly craving a cigarette. Trying to nudge the thought away, he held the match behind his back, meaning the flashlight's light wouldn't cast a shadow as he moved across the street. Not wanting the match to die out, he quickly made his way, a circle of light protecting him from the air-piranhas, as he closed in to The Doctor.

Luckily, the match lasted, and he made it to the light that came from the flickering lamp. He quickly lit a few more matchs and placed them on the ground, giving them a wider area of protection.

He then placed the flashlight on the ground, trying to keep it aimed towards where his shadow may form, before turning himself to the man stuck under the lamp. A smirk formed upon Ethan's lips, as he brought a hand up to hold the carrot, while biting the end of it off, before saying: 'Nyeeh, what's up doc'?' Not even waiting for a response, he giggled at his own crappy reference to a cartoon he watched as a boy..

'Okay..' He said to himself, taking a deep breath. He then placed both his hands on the lamp, and gave a good push. The lamp was surprisingly light, and rolled off of The Doctor with ease. 'Time to see what this sonic contraption does..' He announced, as if someone were next to him taking notes.

Ethan then pulled out The Doctor's screwdriver, before aiming it at The Doctor himself. He pressed the only button he could see on the sonic, in hopes it would help the man from whatever state he was in. But, instead, the lamp stopped flickering, and started to produce a constant bright light, the colour of it changing to baby blue.

'That's..' Ethan started, looking between the sonic and the lamp. 'I think this is a sonic light switch.. how useful..' He sarcastically noted, before placing it next to The Doctor. He then stood up, looking the man up and down, before looking back to the lamp. 'This should keep him safe until the sun comes up.. hopefully..' Ethan then picked up the flashlight, and aimed it at his feet, creating a circle of light around him.

'I'm glad I thought of this now, you know, when I've already saved this weirdo's butt..' He sighed, before walking back towards the store, protected by the light coming from it, and waiting until the sun would later rise.

Hi there! Good application! There's a few grammar issues you may want to fix, but it's nothing major if you don't. Your app is understandable as is.

However, I would like you to trim down your character history section. You obviously have a very thorough understanding of your character, and that's fantastic. However, a lot of your character history is a bit fluffy. And as that part alone is over 2,000 words, it could use some trimming. Keep the major events in his life, but cut out the extras. For example: we don't really need to know that he learned to walk and talk, as we assume that he is a normal functioning human being and would be able of doing these things.

If you could just do that for me, your character will be approved!
