.... You've doomed us all. Granted. Everyone except for traps are executed. Random sci-fi nonsense is required to be taught in schools.
A cute intersex harem with everyone in love with the androgynous king and smart and useful enough into pushing the kingdom forward.

You hear the doorbell ring. Both of your parents are unavailable, so you decide to answer the door.

When you open it a strange woman stands there with a large cardboard package and a clipboard. 
She is wearing what could pass as a standard delivery uniform1. Instead of the standard brown the uniform is colored a deep red and has black and yellow circles running up the sides and down the sleeves. She has a newsboy cap perched on top of curly white hair that frames her face and orange eyes that seem completely unaware of the physical barrier between them and your soul. A brass name-tag on her chest reads: “Analiese”.

“Ah, salutations!” She says in an airy voice with a smile. “I'm afraid that you'll have to fill these out. As is standard procedure in this world.”

She hands you a clipboard with a pen attached. The form seems slightly strange.



Name:
[Engage in Nomenclature and input the Epithet by which the Entity which you identify as will be Known.]

Age:
[You are presumed to be Ten, but you may deviate by Two Years in either direction.]

Physical Description:
[Further establish your Identity and Describe the appearance of the Collection of calcium, carbon, chlorine, hydrogen, magnesium, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and sulfur which is called your Body.]

Are there any Concepts that you Empathize with? If so, please indicate:
[Examples include Concepts such as Life, Knowledge, Cooking, Creation or Swords. If you are not sure if the Concept that resides within your Mind is Acceptable or not, simply ask and I will Inform you.]

Which of the following would you say is your greatest strength:
Your ability to think ahead?
Your ability to keep going?
Your ability to learn quickly?

What is your Flavor of Music:
[I myself am fond of the “Pop” which comes from the continent/country of Compola. Though I also enjoy Ambient Industrial, mellow piano and vocal pieces that remind one of the large expanse of Grey void that will one day Consume us all lest we manage to ascend to a higher Plane of existence, and “Rocks” that “Roll.”]

Have the contents of your hand, most specifically your palm, ever been disassembled in a non-standard way: i.e. laceration by a bladed object, serious bruising, or shattering:

What is your favorite Sense:
[Your preferred method of parsing Reality.]

What Sense disturbs you the most:
[There are many things that unnerve us should we detect them.]

If you could see with your eyes would people speak in color or black and white: 
[A parable to clarify:
"A world without color is bland." Andrew said.
"True" Bert replied, "But in the shades of black there is a certain clarity and besides, it's easier to tell the foreigners apart.

"A world with color is confusing." Andrew said.
"True," Bert replied, "But in a chromatic world we can see our personalities better and besides, it makes it easier to hide."]


If people did speak in color what color would you speak in:

+1, but proposing to change the purple glow to green with red glow. :T

Also, would Deception or Persuasion work as a concept? Diplomancy Diplomacy, perhaps? There appear to be none in Zal's thing.

Deception as th' concept, then.

I couldn't really think of anything good in that department, so the whole concept thing is up to you. I just posted something thinking no one else would probably do it. (Even though someone would eventually do it) Also I want to change the purple glow to green with red glow too. (I use purple way too fucking much)

Deception works best, but the other two can work as well.
