Yet another writing/RP sample

Glyph enters the rec room carrying some light reading on Earth culture - Jazz had said they were called comic books. She's distracted by one fragile specimen, open between her digits, and not looking where she's going, when something squishes underfoot, with a squeak, and she loses her balance.

Comic books slide, from the stack, as she falls, and descend onto a floor covered in floppy fowl, with a cacophony of flaps and squeaks.

"Did I hurt anyone!?" Glyph cries in a panic, afraid she's injured some human ally. She lifts one of the rubber chickens, and quickly analyzes with archaeometrical skill, "A decoy? Composed of rubber. Decorated with acrylic pigments."

She looks around; she's sitting on the floor of a room filled with thousands of these elastic avians. "Is this supposed to be a joke? I find this fairly foul humor-!" Glyph processes what she just said. "Fowl humor?" She starts to laugh. "Fowl humor!" She's ridiculously happy to have understood a pun from an alien language!

Another third person writing sample [ooc]

It was a typical day on Cybertron, or so Glyph thought. She hurried along the corridors of headquarters, carrying a stack of datapads containing the latest communiques from foreign heads of state and trade delegations, with her full translations. Her specialty was ancient symbols, but there was little funding for such study these days, so Glyph gave coding support to Chromia's defense team and conducted communications analysis and translations for various agencies within the Autobot government. She was versed in over 3 million forms of communication, including written, signed and spoken languages of organic beings; graphic pictographs, symbols and iconography; and numerous machine, computer and programming languages.

She almost bumped into Cliffjumper, as she turned a corner she was so intent on following the tall, blue bot that was their recently promoted commander. “Sorry!”

“The analysis of the video with that green Seeker?” Cliffjumper prompted. Glyph was the only Autobot who had a clue how to read the inherent body language of the winged, Decepticon Seekers, and that was partly result of studying published works on the communication of other winged sentient species, and mostly megacycles of watching video captured by Spacebridge Security Teams.

“Already at your workstation!” Glyph cried as she danced aside and continued on along the next corridor. She called after their commander, “Sentinel Magnus, Sir!” It looked like he was leaving the building! “Sir, Sentinel Magnus! I have additional translations for you!”

The taller bot barely paused and looked briefly over his shoulder as Glyph hurried to catch up to his position. “What is it...Glimmer?”

“Glyph, Sir. Translations.” Glyph shifted the stack of datapads to clarify her meaning.

“Put them on my workstation.”

“There are a lot of datapads there, Sir. And, excuse me, Sentinel Magnus, Sir, but had you a chance to review my proposal regarding...”

“Of course I reviewed it. It was that one that was really long.”

He hadn't read it, Glyph thought. “Yes, Sir.”

Vital Statistics...all Statistics are Vital [ooc]

Designation: Glyph
Faction Affiliation: Autobot
Alt-mode: small hovercar

Background: Glyph graduated from Drouhard University - popular with femme bots - with a concentration in Archaeometry and minor concentrations in Cryptology and Linguistics. Upon graduation, she became a member of the Autobot Science Guild. Glyph went on to serve the Autobots on Cybertron as an archaeometrist, identifying and dating artifacts.

A respected researcher among the Autobots, Glyph had many adventures in providing analysis, processing data, dating artifacts, making translations, encrypting secure data and decrypting enemy information systems. She wrote of all of these adventures in lengthy detail, in her mission reports. However, the reports were so long, few Autobots have ever read them in full.

Although busy with her duties, Glyph found time to socialize with Bumper while Ratchet and an organic alien were transwarped onto a street nearby. She also took time from her work to cheer for Sentinel Prime upon his triumphant return from Earth.

Personality: Glyph is a shy wallflower who is too focused on her work to devote time to a social life, or even interacting regularly with other living, sentient beings. Serious and mature, she is more comfortable working with artifacts, dead languages, code and encryption than having fun with other bots. As such, she tends to write long reports detailing her work to superiors and co-workers and then become annoyed when they confess they did not read the entire report. Her dissatisfaction with being ignored occasionally drives her to go out and interact with others and show interest in their work, in the hopes the interest will be returned.

Abilities: Glyph sports the popular and fuel-efficient 65356-9292-346 "scout" body shell type. She is lacking in physical strength and combat skills, but has ample technical and analytical skills with which to support her teammates. Her particular sensor network is well able to scan and take samples for electrochemical analysis, which her shell is physically equipped to provide. Her analytical processing ability and archaeometry database enable her to date artifacts, identify symbols, recognize patterns and decipher codes and languages.
