what I think I am
I believe I was born otherkin, I've been like this for as long as I can remember, the only differences were finding names for what I was.
I am Christian, but non-denominational. I tend to disagree with the church a lot, some more than others. I don't mean any church in particular, but the church as a group. I hate it when people try to use faith as an excuse to do wrong, like the Inquisition and Avenging Angels, and even the KKK. I know they don't represent my faith, they just twist it way out of proportion to what they want, it's the opposite of what I believe.
my views on these things, and the definitions I'm using for this essay - these are not final definitions, they just make this easier to understand
someone who is different from the norm (or mundane), or in some way could be considered 'other' than human, but not in a physical sense. Also a therian who relates to a 'fantastical' creature, not something living (or dead) on earth.
An otherkin who relates to an animal(s) that is 'real' or lives/lived on earth.
A person who depends on the energy of others to survive, usually either through drinking blood or taking psychic energy.
A person with more than one personality; this can be caused by having many souls or having an aspected personality or anything in between (or just about anything really.)
A 'normal' person, not meant to be deragtory, (it's a lot better than 'human' or 'mortal') a person who is not otherkin, or does not want to have to do with those things, or wants to be normal, etc.
A more spiritual creature, I generally use this word to describe spirits or creatures who appear to be an animal but are different; for example a tiger with no gender who glows and can fly, it appears to be a tiger but is different, also I use this to describe the wiser creatures/spirits.
what I think I am
I believe I may have had a previous existance, but it wasn't really a past life, as in I wasn't born, but more created.
I think maybe we had become fused in that previous existance, as I think I may have been able to cross between worlds, but I'm not entirely sure - this is just what makes sense to me.
I think I was sent by God to do something. Unsure as to what.
how I found them
I am a psi vampire. I awakened almost a year ago, and have been able to feed pretty well since then on nature.
We have many different theories on this. We could be multiple souls born into one body. They could be imaginary friends. I could be crazy.
They could be aspects of my personality. They could be characters. However, the theory that seems to stand out most is that we were all fused together between existances,
and now live in a state somewhere in between one being and many. Not quite multiple, not quite aspected. We have a hard time being seperate from each other, as in we can almost always feel what the others are doing etc.
Our innerspace is centered around a stone that sticks out of a cliff; this is where the fronter goes. Below it is a small cave and two rows of trees. There is a small hill behind it. There is a large, bent tree near it.
There are many fields and hills in this area, and just to the east is a forest of white aspen trees. North is a lake. Past the forest is a huge cliff which drops off to a planted desert. To the south west are some large mountains.
It's pretty snowy to the south, and pretty far to the north east is a sandy desert. We haven't come close to exploring all of it.
Others have a hard time fronting, but have taken interest in the forums, so if they have something to say I will type for them.
We finally decided on 'Free Spirits', yes that is referencing Christianity, as that's about the only thing we really have in common.
name - these are not our real names (a couple are) but we chose these because we liked them and it made it easy to label us
picture - these are really not perfect - I just can't draw them

anthro winged baku
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs38/f/2008/327/d/1/baku_lineart_by_hiraistrange.jpg">http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs38/f/2008/ ... trange.jpg</a><!-- m -->
She is over 6 feet tall, and walks upright on her hind legs. She has a large trunk for a nose, and three sets of tusks
Two of the tusks are halfway up her face, on either side of her trunk. They are like an elephants, except the trips curve up at the ends.
The next two are on her chin, fairly far apart, and reach to the bottoms of the other tusks.
The third pair are in the center of her chin and very small. She has an underbite with large fangs.
She has smaller elephant ears. Her eyes are black, and somewhat slitted in shape (eye shape, not pupil shape).
She has a mane of black, sharp fur, it's more like large, hollow needles. Her torso and arms are more human like.
She has long fingers and opposable thumbs, with long claws. She has large owl-like wings.
She is fairly lightly built, without much muscle. Her legs are like anthro cat legs, with long paws and claws, and a dewclaw on each foot.
Her tail is like a long ox tail with a significant amount of curly fur on the end of it.
She has similar fur down her entire back, and on the backs of her arms and legs. She has short, soft fur covering the rest of her body.
Her colors are grey, white and black, and she has some stripes and spots, and the back of her wings are black.
She is very frightening the first time you see her, but you get used to it. She doesn't look feminine.
She a bit of a sadist. She enjoys playing with her food (nightmares and bad spirits) and occasionally tormenting it before finishing it off.
However, she is very protective and loyal to those close to her. She doesn't talk much, and prefers to be a watcher than a doer.
I first saw her in a nightmare. It was a pretty complicated dream, but it mostly consisted of her losing various body parts and I would gain them.
She was following me around in the dream. It was very potent, and I saw her a few times after that in other dreams.
I believe in that dream, she was keeping me asleep to try to communicate. It could have been something else, but I couldn't wake up. I kept barely waking up, and then I would be 'pulled' to sleep again.
It wasn't really pleasent, but it was worth it to meet her.
She does have a human form, who looks a bit like a somewhat goth girl.
anthro winged wolf - celestial
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs33/f/2008/2....08a68715d55.jpg">http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs33/f/2008/ ... 715d55.jpg</a><!-- m -->
He is about 9 feet tall. He walks upright on his hind legs. His torso and arms are human like, with human like hands and opposable thumbs.
His face is that of a wolf; he has a very short mane of gold and white fur around his face. His eyes are very kind looking, with a pale color.
He has large feathered wings on his back. His legs are like a wolf's. He has a somewhat short, poofy tail. He has medium length white fur on his body.
He has a few splash of gold fur as well. His wings are white with gold trim on the edges.
He is very kind, but extremely fierce when someone he cares about is in danger. He can turn from loving and kind to furious in an instant in this situation.
He has a handful of close friends, but is still friendly to most, and hesitates to make judgements.
I first saw him in a dream as well. This we believe was a memory of his. He and some of his friends (other headmates, who we'll get to)
we're escaping from a facility where people like them were being held (this was similar to earth, but probably not it)
At this facility they would keep creatures that could look like humans. They were treated VERY badly, and had been planning an escape for some time.
They did escape, but believe they were killed after being chased for some time.
He has a human form of a tall man.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs21/i/2007/249/0/9/Raven_by_Fynal666.jpg">http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs21/i/2007/ ... nal666.jpg</a><!-- m -->
She looks like a crow.. she's a bit on the small side for one, but bigger than a black bird. Her feathers are not shiny like a ravens, but we put that there anyway.
She is very cautious. She's very loyal to her friends, but very cautious of others. She flees from danger.
She is one of Hunter's friends. She escaped with him. She acted as a look out for their group when they were on the run.

A bluish/silvery colored bird with long tail feathers, similar to a peacock. The wings are small and wide like a pheasants, but xi is capable of floating and flying.
Xi has an elaborate crest of feathers on the head. Xi is not sure of their species, but thinks they may be similar to a Chinese bird of luck.
I first saw xi in visions and meditations.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs18/f/2007/135/5/4/Bat_by_Eru_Maamandil.jpg">http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs18/f/2007/ ... mandil.jpg</a><!-- m -->

A bright white butterfly that seems to glow at least in moonlight. Xi has a couple small eyespots on the wings.
Xi is very persistant and patient. She's more of a loner, but still somewhat friendly.
I first saw xi in a dream, which we think was a past life/alternate world. Xi was on some kind of mission to retrieve something.. and succeeded
Xi may have been killed after fleeing. The details are confusing, so I won't go over them.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/0....ju_Yanazaki.jpg">http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/ ... nazaki.jpg</a><!-- m -->
She is very large, with six legs (four front legs) and four wings (two on the shoulders, two on the hips).
She has a large tail fin, with a stinger underneath it. She has many frills and horns. She is blue and white.
She is covered in fragile butterfly scales with make her appear very shiny and bright, they are rubbed off very easily, and come right off in water.
her 'tongue' is like a probascas, although it's more like her esophagus was turned inside out, as it seals off her mouth as well.
She is very kind and patient, and light-hearted. She's a great friend, although she doesn't always take some things seriously.
I've known her for a long time... not sure when the first time I saw her was.
fork-tailed swallow - celestial

He is incredibly high-spirited and happy-go-lucky. He's pretty much the cheer of the place, and pretty hyper active.

He spent most of the time trying to help the other one out, who was in an awful situation.
He has a human form of a young boy.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs43/f/2009/103/a/6/Snow_Fu_by_beastofoblivion.jpg">http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs43/f/2009/ ... livion.jpg</a><!-- m -->
A white statue, with a lion-like head and large lower fangs, like a kirin. He has a large man and horns.
His paws are large with enourmous claws and thumbs. He otherwise looks somewhat like a lion, with a mane down his back
and spines in the 'fur' (made of stone.) He has a permanent frowny face. He has large feathered wings with some claws on them.
Even though he is made of stone and seems to be solid, he can move just fine.
He is pretty quiet. He takes his role as guardian very seriously. He also sees himself as reinforcer. I don't know much else about him.
I first saw him in a dream, details are hard to explain.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://th00.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/f/20....aki-d2xyiep.jpg">http://th00.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/f/2 ... 2xyiep.jpg</a><!-- m -->
I appear like a western dragon with two arms, two legs and two wings. My wings have long extensions on the ends
that look like extra tails, one per wing. Each limb has three finger and a large thumb. The main tail is very thick.
I have two horns on the back of my head and one small one on my beak. My teeth are like a canines mixed with a fishes.
I have frills on my cheeks and back, but usually keep them folded. I have no scales or feathers. My skin is glossy and smooth.
My skin is dark and my inner parts are pale. I'm hollow inside and may have a gel-like substance filling my cavities, instead of organs.
I have a stone in my abdomen held in place with crystal-like formations. I walk on four legs.
I breath something that looks like fire, but might not be fire (not sure.) I have no gender. I seem to be made of some kind of glass.
Judge my personality as you will.
I always knew I was this way... I at least knew I was different somehow, for as long as I can remember.
I SEEM to have a human form in my dreams, of course its my current body. So that doesn't make much sense.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs47/i/2009/215/a/c/Gasshopper_by_Washom.jpg">http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs47/i/2009/ ... Washom.jpg</a><!-- m -->
A grasshopper that looks a bit like a cricket, has a pale color.
He is generally happy and at peace, although he doesn't say much.
I've known about him for a long time, I'm not sure when I first 'discovered' him.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/0....ilvermoonnw.jpg">http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/ ... moonnw.jpg</a><!-- m -->

He has many feathers, and large wings. He is very colorful, with a dark serpentine body. He has streaks of neon on parts of him. He has somewhat short legs.
He is pretty big.
He has a lot of charisma. You could say he's charming, but he doesn't talk too much. He doesn't overdo it.
I've known about him... for several years. Again, not sure when exactly I first met him.
He has a human form, of a dark-skinned, beautiful man.
microraptor - celestial
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_KezhQ6waZT0/TB....roraptor_3_.jpg">http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_KezhQ6waZT0/T ... tor_3_.jpg</a><!-- m -->
An adorable like microraptor with four wings. He is a pale color, and an expert flyer (despite what arceology says about the species.)
He doesn't actually have much of a personality... he's really just chill.
Another one I don't remember when I met them.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2010/1....dSpiritWolf.png">http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2010/ ... itWolf.png</a><!-- m -->

His mane and tail are of fair length. He's only a little big for a horse.

raptor - celestial
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/3....c8a-d35yhnj.jpg">http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/ ... 35yhnj.jpg</a><!-- m -->
She is similar to a velociraptor without the thumb claws, and with longer arms, long enough to go down on them.
She has bright feather crests on her head and tail. They glow and look a bit like crystals (except they're feathers...)
She is a pale color, sometimes tan and sometimes bluish.
She is pretty happy-go-lucky and loves being around others. Although when she's bored she likes to pull pranks or tease others.
saber-tooth cat - celestial

He looks like a general saber-tooth; he has tannish fur and a very short tail. His ears are darker, and he has a short brown mane on his neck.
He is very patient, quiet and calm. He is full of wisdom, and when someone needs advice they go to him. He is loving.
He is another friend of Hunter's, and helped with the escape. He was able to walk on air in that time, which is why he's labeled as celestial.
He has a human form of a fairly young man.
sea serpent - celestial
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2010/3....eaf-d31uiql.jpg">http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2010/ ... 31uiql.jpg</a><!-- m -->
She looks like she's made of metal, at least her scales. They are large and square in shape, and look like they are steel.
She has a couple horns and some spines. She is very long, and quite large. She can fly as if swimming in the air.
She doesn't like to talk. She's pretty dark in nature, and understandably so. She tends to disregard others. There are things that make her happy though.
I first saw her in a dream, which we think was a past life or alternate world. It was very awful, and probably shouldn't be described.
She has a human form of a teenage girl.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.hlasek.com/foto/strix_uralensis_ad9336.jpg">http://www.hlasek.com/foto/strix_uralensis_ad9336.jpg</a><!-- m -->
He looks like a black barn owl with a white face. His eyes are black, and he has glowing markings on his wings.

which looks somewhat humanoid with webbed wings, long claws and a tail. He also has horns like this, and spines.
And animal legs, but human like arms.
He doesn't talk.. much. He prefers to be alone, but seems to like the company of the werewolf.
I've known about him since middle school? Not sure, but its been a long time.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs21/i/2007/2...._by_Farumir.png">http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs21/i/2007/ ... arumir.png</a><!-- m -->

He has large paws with big fingers and claws, and thumbs. His tail is somewhat like a wolf's, along with his body and legs.
He can stand on his hind legs, but doesn't do it much.

white bengal tiger - celestial
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/2....9ed-d4dabbp.jpg">http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/ ... 4dabbp.jpg</a><!-- m -->
A glowing white tiger. Not much else to say.
Xi is very kind and protective, particularly of nature. Xi is like a spirit guide.
I've known about this one for a long time also.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://kleiomusae.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/00blackwyrm.gif">http://kleiomusae.files.wordpress.com/2 ... ckwyrm.gif</a><!-- m -->
He is a large worm-like creature, with four jaws on his head, and no real face. He has thick plated, dark grey scales on his entire body.
I can't tell if he has eyes. He has some spines on his back, and I think he can breathe fire, and may be venomous.
He tends to be solitary and stay away from others. He gets angry easily, but is pretty shy.
He also had a terrible past life (or it might have been an alternate world), it was the one Swift was in. I really shouldn't talk about what happened to Drake, needless to say, it was bad.
The only real good part of it was Swift himself.
He has a human form of a somewhat brawny man with dark hair.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://fc06.deviantart.net/images3/i/2004/171/a/2/City_Wyvern.jpg">http://fc06.deviantart.net/images3/i/20 ... Wyvern.jpg</a><!-- m -->
She is very large, at least 15 feet tall. She has a medium length neck and long tail. She stands straight up on her hind legs, unlike birds.
She has huge webbed wings, and is black with some silver. She has a few horns on her head, and several down her back.
She can breathe fire.
She is a bit elitist and really doesn't like humans. She enjoys flying, and burning things. She isn't really an angry person, though. She's usually neutral, or happy, unless you set her off somehow.
We consider Jesus to be a headmate as He is perpetually in our innerworld. It's very nice.
I've known about her for about as long as I've known I was different. I've had many, many dreams with her.
