Re: A warm 'Hello' from all of us!
Thank you, all of you. I hope my stay will prove to be a warm and quite fulfilling one, as well.
Now, Hannah, to answer your question. The multiplism was something that even I was skeptical of when we had our first awakening. We weren't like the other singletons in our gaggle, as Juedeas (from our first awakening) and I would shift back and forth. This was more than just a mental shift, as I would lose time on occasion. That whole theory wasn't proved (or at least, backed up) until the second awakening happened in the middle of our American Studies History class. The teacher had been showing pictures that she had taken whilst at several of the concentration camps in Europe, and a memory hit like ammo from a bar-100 (figuratively, of course). The memory (and we won't go into detail) was from the soon-to-be second headmate, Alfred.
That's what had given us the clue of what we were, and the proof to actually begin calling ourselves a multiple and not just crazy.
As for the kin-types, and why we believe them to be what they are? Eh, we can't really answer that. There are more of us than what we can account for, but as far as the roster goes (and this is only a fraction) we have a few humans, several canines, two thylacines, a werewolf or two, kitsunes (a facet of about five), a vampire, an elf, two anchor-like creatures, a mayan-esque bird thing (we're trying to figure him out, too), and all too many more to name off.
Some of the things, like Del Sol (the mayan-esque bird), Rapache and Walkder (the anchor-like things), are unknown as to what they are. We've tried to look into it, but have found no successive evidence or leads on them (Well, on Del, but a friend did know what Rapache(Rapture) and Walkder (Valder) were, but wasn't telling us, for our own safety, or something).
But, if you have any other questions on that, We'd be glad to answer them.
