Have you read and understood the whitelisted Civ rules (View-able on the map screen in-game): Yes
Why do you want to be Whitelisted? Be descriptive.. This is a ROLEPLAY orientated position, “To play Medic/Mechanic” is not a valid response:
Many of my relatives have been in the social services lines of work, my mother and father were police officers, my uncle Steven was a Mechanic, one of my aunties was a Security Contractor and the other was a Medic. All throughout my childhood these relatives of mine have done their best to inspire me to do as well as I can to help the civilian population of Altis. Unfortunately, when I was only thirteen years old, my Security Contractor aunty, Sherrie, was brutally killed whilst responding to a call for help from the police, when she drove directly into an active firefight at Sofia Hospital in a Hatchback Sport and sadly perished in a blaze of glory as the robbers gunned her down while she ran for cover indoors. Call it coincidence, or call it fate, but the first person to arrive on the scene after the police had apprehended the robbers was my other aunty. She told me later how she'd arrived on the scene, landing her helicopter in front of the Hospital and getting out, only to find her sister riddled with bullet holes and lying in a pool of blood. Four and a half years ago my remaining Aunt took her own life in a tragic suicide attempt that ripped my father's psyche to shreds.
After the tragic loss of both of his sisters in the space of a year, along with a rather serious wound to the leg from a stray round that hit him during a bank robbery, my father was discharged from the Police Force by one of the Commissioners, and I've been caring for him ever since. He is kept in Kavala Hospital twenty-four-seven, and I find myself very often taking time off my job as a truck driver to help the nurses of the hospital care for him. One of those nurses I got to know very well over time, and I'm now happily married to my wife Jennifer, who inspires me every day to be the best I can be for the citizens of Altis. Back to my father, after three years of a once great man slowly degenerating into madness, he mercifully befell the same fate as his sisters, and died in a lethal gas leak at the hospital. The Medics told me he died at least died painlessly, a fitting contrary to how he had been living. With the loss of three of my family members, I have come to realise how important life is, and that it should be embraced and protected at all costs, both ones own life and the lives of others too.
My mother was always a tough woman. She rose high in the ranks of the Darkside Police Department, and was a very successful officer. However after the death of my father she handed in her retirement forms to the Commissioners, and has settled down to a quiet life in the hills far north of Kavala, living out her days keeping a clutch of chickens and a small farmstead growing potatoes. I visit her every week on a Sunday to see how she is getting along, but she is ageing and I fear she will soon be lost to me as well, much to my anguish. Thankfully she still has family members to hold onto being myself, my sister and my uncle.
Uncle Steven thrives as a Mechanic. He absolutely loves his job, and every opportunity I could get as a young boy I would take to go driving with him in his big trucks, those were the times of my life. He's getting along well, being quite a bit younger than Angeline, his sister and my mother. I remember after my father's death him comforting my mother and saying to me "Jon, though times may be hard, those who stay together stay strong. Your father Mikkel may have died young, but he was a great man and don't let any man, woman, or child have you believe anything other than that." This quote has helped me through many hard times such as the still-birth of my son Jasper, and I constantly remind myself of his inspirational words whenever I face hardship.
With the deaths of three members of my family, all of whom I was very close to, all the persuasion done by my family in my childhood has brought me here, applying for a job. I hope to work my way through system of work and help as many citizens of Altis as I can. As a Medic I pledge to aid all wounded in any way I can, and to help ease the pain of a close friend or family member passing away for the people most affected. I will be the first on the scene, doing my best to bring back precious life to those who are on the brink of losing it forever, and I shall never attempt to take a life, as I have recognised how precious and rare life is that we haven't discovered any other place in our infinite universe that contains our most amazing gift and essential necessity.
Taking inspiration from my Uncle Steven, I've always wanted to be a Mechanic, and drive the big trucks around like he does, towing vehicles and sending them to the impound lot to keep the streets clean and drastically reduce the rate of accidents on the roads. I believe that Mechanics have one of the most important jobs on Altis, and almost certainly one of the most enjoyable... Who wouldn't love driving around in big vehicles and moving other vehicles around to keep the streets clean, while also helping civilians with broken-down cars, reducing the amount of stranded citizens who could succumb to the elements without the safety of a town or city, instead being stuck in the middle of a highway with no one else around to help them.
Finally, as a Security I pledge to protect and serve the citizens of Altis in all their doings, be it truck delivery or glass selling. Though I may on occasion be required to take a life to protect my own or another's, those who are willing to take lives are those who should be prepared to die, which I am, and I have little sympathy for delinquent criminals after the incident with my aunty being killed by them. Otherwise I will do my utmost to defend the citizens of Altis and assist the police force in defusing highly tense situations with no loss of life, which I abhor. Overall I wish to serve the citizens of Altis in whatever way I can, be it as a Medic, Mechanic, or Security Contractor. The preservation of life is my goal and reason for existence in this world, and I intend to fulfil my god-given duty to serve and protect those in need.
A brief description about yourself (Your play style): I'm a pretty fair helicopter pilot, but otherwise I enjoy driving around the roads of Altis to respond to situations as a Medic/Mechanic/Security in the local area that I happen to be. I play a lot of cop, and one of the big issues I have with playing civilian is that I don't have a particular purpose when I play it, whereas on cop I have a preset of things to achieve and do all the time such as patrol and respond to crime. Hence the main reason I wish to become whitelisted is because then I can play civilian with a purpose in playing it, not for the money or benefits because I don't care about being a rebel, I don't find it that enjoyable because it's just like normal civilian with no tasks to complete. I'm a very straightforward, ninety degree person, and I enjoy games that give me and objective and send me off to do it, which is what cop and whitelisted civilian do in the most entertaining way I've experienced yet, allowing me to have some free rein whilst patrolling or driving around but also giving me an objective to fulfil over time as I pot around looking for general crime, or medical/mechanic/security situations et cetera.
