Ave.
I hate introductions.

But I guess it's a necessary pain, if I'm going to actually stay on this forum for longer than a day. Which is what I'm aiming for.
Hm.
What do normal people write in their introductions?

My name's Kiyamvir. Well, it's my nickname, not my real name. I can't tell you my real name. No, I mean, I really can't, even if I wanted to. Ever heard of this old myth that a demon can be controlled by his name, which is why he doesn't tell it to anyone? They say that there's a bit of truth in every myth. I sometimes wonder about that. Just like a weird blockade within me, and I've no clue where it comes from. But that's beside the point.

You probably want to know how i got to discover that I'm a demon. It's what everyone writes in their introduction, right? Well, that's a funny story. You see, when I was young and clueless and had no idea who I was, I became a satanist. No, not the kind of satanist that burns down churches and drinks the blood of virgins (although I sometimes feel like doing that : D). I was a spiritual satanist, which meant that I worshipped 'the Old Gods' - the race of demons that humanity worshipped a long time ago in ancient Sumer and Egypt - you know, Asmodeus, Enki, Beelzebub and the rest of them. And it was funny, because at the time, I did not realise that I'm a demon too, so I worshipped my own kind. Well, not exactly, since I'm a different kind of demon; but no matter. I don't know exactly what kind of demon I am, and I don't care. I am what I am and I feel no need to label myself with pretty names. But anyway; it was only later on that my friend, who is a strong medium and knows a lot about spiritual stuff, said to me "hey, you're a demon". And I thought she was joking, but then pieces started to fit together. Of course, I realized how ironic it was for a demon to be a satanist, so I stopped. I still keep contact with the 'Old Gods', but I don't feel a need to serve them any longer. I think you can figure out why, hmm?

So, that's the story. Of course, it took me about a year to fully acknowledge the fact that I'm not human, but I feel comfortable now that I'm aware of it.

Hm. What else can I say about myself? I don't have a specific goal in life. I live so that I know what it's like to be human. I observe, but I don't involve myself. I feel no need to. I still don't understand humanity - their shallow problems, their lack of appreciation for life, their weird habits. And their bodies. What is the point of eating and sleeping anyway? Especially the latter. It's just like wasting half of your day, while you could be doing more interesting things than... lying down and having weird dreams... oO' (yesterday I had a dream about a zombie apocalypse in Hogwarts. I just don't know where those dreams come from. And why Hogwarts, of all places?)

But one thing I love about being here, is the music. I love Ayreon, Abney Park and Two Steps From Hell. (what an ironic name) Music is just so beautiful <3 And I'm obsessed with watching movies too. Especially the ones where there's blood and guts all over the place <3 Or movies about exorcisms. I can't stop laughing when I see them : D

And hmm. One last thing, I guess. I came here because I was curious about other people like me. I'm not a lonely soul who wants to figure out what she is, because I already know who I am. Still, more knowledge won't hurt, will it?

Oh, and I'm a bit sceptical, so bear with me. I'm still unsure about werewolfs, faeries and elves, but I'll try to be open-minded. It's not that I don't like elves. I wanted to be an elf ever since I discovered Warcraft III. I'm just difficult to persuade~ c:

Re: Ave.
Hello and welcome to OKP.

I'm a demonic beast and a Satanist - I don't see anything ironic or anything about it. Not at all. (Course, I'm not that kind of a demon or that kind of a Satanist either.)

Plus, nice to see a fan of Ayreon.

Mm, but what Satanic denomination do you belong to? What I found ironic in my case was that spiritual satanism concentrates on actual worship of the Nephilim demons, which is quite different to say, La Veyan Satanism. So, a demon worshiping a demon - for some reason I just thought it was wrong c;

Quote:What about elves, werewolves, etc. do you find so hard to believe vs. incarnate demons?
Hmm... It's just the idea of elves mainly appearing in fantasy, I think? And the fact that I'm not sure where these elves come from, and how humanity got to know them. Cause demons have been acknowledged in many world religions, people have had sightings of them, just like angels - some were even possessed by them for different reasons. Elves, on the other hand - I've never heard of someone who tried to summon an elf, or saw an elf, so elves have mostly been in Nordic mythology and such. And werewolves... Well, as long as they don't go around saying that they can physically change their shape when full moon comes, I think I can accept that. Still, I'm unsure why an animal would want to take a human shape. It's in my nature to question what doesn't seem realistic to me, because I know that many humans have a certain... tendency for pretending that their true form is a fantasy being as soon as they hear about the Otherkin.

No actual named religion of Satanism really. I mean, I’ve taken a few notes out of LaVeyan Satanism and the Temple of Set along other places. For example, I predominately see the world in anagonstic light plus I follow the jest of the “Satanic Laws,” “Satanic Rules,” and the “Satanic Sins.” Not to mention what rituals I do practice are glamour for my own brain. Akin to some Setian philosophies I really have a soft post Egyptian symbolism as well as a key focus on "enlightened individualism" and education. I do revere, though not exactly worship since I‘m not that kind of a guy, is the Horned God (or as some spiritual Satanist’s see it - an archetypical collective from the various horned deities from various pagan religions -Cernunnos, Pan, and so on) but not in a ritualistic way at all. For me, I’m particularly interested in the imagery of the Baphomet which is an originally imagined pagan deity created by Christians concerned about people still practicing paganism.

That really accounts for any kind of otherkin though. Plus one can see their being otherkin as being psychological.

Skepticism is a healthy thing as long as you aren't being insulting toward some one. Not like them being insulted over being asked questions that are legitimate (proof of physical shifting in example) but calling names or what not.

~Natani

It is true that normal humans tend to want to be something else especially in their youth.

True, but the thing is - with another demon, I could probably tell if he's a demon or not, based on his aura, personality, eyes (I found out that demons have a very distinctive... glare) and behaviour. Of course, it would be harder through internet, but nevertheless - I know what being a demon is like, so it's easier for be to believe. Now, with elves, faeries and other things... Mm, all I know about them comes from games, books and media in general, and I've no clue how to tell if someone's an elf or not. Surely not by the ears, right? x) A strong connection with nature, spirits and elements - are all shamans/druids/wiccans elves, then? You see what I mean? Tongue I just don't know where these whole elves come from, and what they're like.

Oh, fear not, I haven't fallen as low as to call other people names. I only attack when attacked - an eye for an eye, never otherwise.
