What O5 Designation would you prefer (1-12) and what character?: 

O5-1 or O5-3


Male. European descent. British origin. Appears around mid-50s
Formerly affiliated with Her Majesty's Foundation for the Secure Containment of the Paranormal.

Known to be friendly and talkative, often known to interact with Foundation personnel without revealing his position as a member of the O5-Council. 

He truly believes that the best way to keep the people of the world safe is through the withholding of  information. Using the phrase "Ignorance Is Bliss" as his personal mantra.


Have you read and understand the rules of SCP-RP?: Yes 


Why do you believe you should be part of the O5 Council and what can you bring to the role e.g (Pressure in extreme situations, making the tough decisions):

I believe greatly in my ability to make tough decisions on the fly, this not only stems from my in-game roles that require competent people for RP but also real life experiences and training I've gone through.  As well as this, I also hold my conversational abilities in quite high regard. Believing it to be one of my greats assets. Another strength I believe I hold, Is my ability to watch out for my surroundings and identify threats before they happen and reacting to them correctly. The best way to react to a threat in my opinion is to already have a precaution set up for a certain kind of situation and what's the best way to set up these precautions and Plan-B's? Information, that's what. I believe that through my utilization and securing of information I can help to make the Foundation a safer and more efficient place. 

I also wish to bring a more friendly face into the foundation, to attempt to lift the depressing mood that constantly looms over the Foundation and a lot of its personnel. 


Can you explain what an O5 does for the foundation and the site itself and why he himself differs from any other site Administration?:

The O5 Council is unlike any other role in the foundation. They vote and decide on critical decisions whether it be external issues like GOIs or internal affairs like an out of control researcher. However, with this great amount of authority also comes an equally large amount if not more responsibility. This responsibility is what makes O5 so different, because a failure to live up to their authority could have a catastrophic result.

The Council's jurisdiction also extends over all sites, not just their own. Which is the case with SDs.

Unlike SDs, a Council member stretches to all foundations resources and even its most valuable assets. Their differences also arise from the Council’s level of secrecy and the fact it even has its own MTF, it being Alpha-1. They oversee the actions of the Site Administration and make sure to uphold the Foundation’s main objective, secure, contain, protect


What is the O5 Council?: 

The O5 Council are 12-13 overseers who maintain the direction of the Foundation and vote on critical decisions which will often seriously affect the Foundation in one way or another. Such as, GOI relations, the altering in foundation rules, the cancelling of projects or the altering of classifications. They do this through a democratic vote with O5-13 usually being seen as the deciding vote. Every Council member identity is held with the utmost secrecy and anyone below Clearance 2 is not know of their existence. Also being able to detonate the warheads on sites. They are there to uphold and retain the principles of the Foundation for not just themselves but also every personnel. To secure, contain, protect, so they can keep humanity safe.


Are you currently head of a department (Job Manager), general staff in Nu-7 or a Site Director?: No, only ECM, HoEA and Research Supervisor (HR).


What Department would you like to focus on? (Research, Mobile Task Forces, Ethics,...): Something like Information Security (like RAISA or IDCaRD). Although, I'm fine with anything.
