Multiple System Questionnaire
The last one was outdated, by about 6 years (I can't believe it's been that long), and I thought that revamping it might be a good idea for those systems that are currently active and for those who come on board. None of the questions are mandatory and only answer what you feel comfortable answering.

~ Arawn

1. Does your system have a name? If so, what is it?

2. What type of system are you? (Multiple, median, etc.)

3. How many members are in your system? What are your names, if you wish to share?

4. Do any of you identify as non-human? If so, how many and what are you? Do any of you identify as human?

5. What is your theory on why you are part of a Multiple System? Are there different theories held by different members of the system?

6. How did you reach the conclusion that you're a Multiple System? How long did it take you to realize that you were a System?

7. Do you have your own memories from a potential past life or before being in the system? Do you have your own memories from in system? Is there a collective memory dump that anyone can access if necessary, or if wanted?

8. Do you have any stories you want to share that are fun?

9. Do you have any advice for someone trying to find out if they're part of a Multiple System or not?

Re: Multiple System Questionnaire
1. Does your system have a name? If so, what is it?
We call ourselves House of Chimeras, or in a more legal name structure, Chimera House.

Long story shot the name has a lot of symbolism and meaning behind it.


2. What type of system are you? (Multiple, median, etc.)

A short list of terms that can/do fit -
Multiple system - many different people one body
Natural (multiple) system - considers their multiplicity to be something that occurred naturally (we think our brain is naturally wired to accept multiple identities )
Gateway system - view our inner world as another reality and we use the body to interact in this reality (psychological or spiritual take debatable among us)


3. How many members are in your system? What are your names, if you wish to share?
Not exactly sure as still finding old faces and such; however current count is 32.

Everyone’s name - Ace, Aquasarius, Arron, Cavern-Risen, Cloudtail, Darahagh, Dracone, Earth Listener, Ebony, Felicity, Grizzly Ears, Hazeltoes, Jordan, Joker, Kardegray, Kota, Knives, Lunatani, Maya, Mist (currently changing her name), Nightlegs, Ocean Touched, Page, Pantairin, Raina, Sage, Spiridon, Sunfur, Tanka, Venzaveer, Yamir, and Z.


4. Do any of you identify as non-human? If so, how many and what are you? Do any of you identify as human?
Everyone is nonhuman in identity accept Jordan. Jordan is the only human (that we know of). Everyone else…

Ace - tiger (blue and white wolf with horns and a mane)
Aquasarius - taniwha
Arron - vampire
Cavern-Risen - garou
Cloudtail - gray wolf
Darahagh - souther live oak treeJ
Dracone - (shadow?) dragon
Earth Listener - luna moth and aelurodon
Ebony - thestral
Felicity - domestic cat
Grizzly Ears - gray wolf
Hazeltoes - gray wolf
Joker - bargest (gray and red/black wolf with a skull, horns, and mane)
Kardegray - six-limbed, two mouthed, six eyes, two horned reptilian furried beast
Kota - Texas long-horn
Knives - purple reptilian wolf with mane and horns
Lunatani - adlet
Maya - jaguar autoton
Mist (name currently being changed) - Named
Nightlegs - gray wolf
Ocean Touched - blue glaucus and frilled shark
Page - brown and white wolf with a mane
Pantairin - all deer species
Raina - mermaid
Sage - vanrara
Spiridon - shadhavar
Sunfur - gray wolf
Tanka - American bison
Venzaveer - undocumented hawk-eagle
Yamir - tarpan
Z - snowy owl, harpy, winged humanoid, etc to other avian/human forms


5. What is your theory on why you are part of a Multiple System? Are there different theories held by different members of the system?
We very like crazy from psychological to spiritual, but most of us see most of our system being naturally occurring with a few people coming around later on for sure. Some of us see ourselves as naturally wired to be able to be this way and others think we were many souls born in one body, etc. Some really have no clue or opinion either way though.


6. How did you reach the conclusion that you're a Multiple System? How long did it take you to realize that you were a System?
It took us roughly 15 years to come to the conclusion of the term “multiple system.” However we’ve been dealing with and misunderstanding our multiplicity since childhood. Calling each other voices or characters or later spirit guides or whatnot. It took until discovering there are multiples thanks to coming into the otherkin communities to realize what all was going on.


7. Do you have your own memories from a potential past life or before being in the system? Do you have your own memories from in system? Is there a collective memory dump that anyone can access if necessary, or if wanted?
A few of us do have what could be called “past lives.” Those being - Ace, Arron, Cavern-Risen, Ebony, Felicity, Joker, Kardegray (though he ignores and denies them adamantly), Kota, Knives, Maya, Page, Pantairin, and Z.

We both have a “memory pool” which is passively created which can be used by all, and have our own perspectives/takes on our daily life as well.


8. Do you have any stories you want to share that are fun?
Oh sure, but there are so many quirky stories…

- The time Z went to Best Buy to get a microphone only to say “We are-uh I am looking […]” causing the worker to literally glance around the store and at us in confusion.

- The time Lunatani answered the phone in a too childish of voice only to have the person wanting to sell something on the other end ask her (like she was a child) “Oh, is your mommy home?” xD

… so many little things.


9. Do you have any advice for someone trying to find out if they're part of a Multiple System or not?
Check into as many alternatives as you can think of (auditory hallucinations, very active imagination, etc). Consider talking to a mental health professional just to be on the face side (extremely recommended in case where a possible “headmate” is being threatening, if there is time loss, if it there are issues related to the experiences, etc). Its okay to be wrong or things to change. And finally - READ and read some more.

Re: Multiple System Questionnaire
We should probably answer this. <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

1. Does your system have a name? If so, what is it?

- Annwyn House or the House of Annwyn depending on the site.

2. What type of system are you? (Multiple, median, etc.)

- Multiple-ish. Sometimes it's more Median like and there's often a weird blending and re-emerging.

3. How many members are in your system? What are your names, if you wish to share?

- Four-ish
- Arawn, Lestat, Nico, Fenrir

4. Do any of you identify as non-human? If so, how many and what are you? Do any of you identify as human?

- Arawn: polymorph
- Lestat: vampire, fictive
- Fenrir: anthropomorphic wolf
- Nico: Demigod so it's complicated. In his canon he's mortal, but still has neat powers.

5. What is your theory on why you are part of a Multiple System? Are there different theories held by different members of the system?

- I generally see it as psychological because of trauma in a past, but the origins don't really bother me. Lestat doesn't know even though he doesn't believe he was born here. Fenrir feels like he was put here by some greater force. Nico is of the mind that sense his father is Hades and he can travel between different realms and deal with the dead that inserting his essence into another body isn't much different, but he doesn't really know, either. So we're kind of mixed.

6. How did you reach the conclusion that you're a Multiple System? How long did it take you to realize that you were a System?

- 6 years ago I knew I was part of a Multiple System, but some sort of integration occurred, which isn't uncommon here, and then it took about three or four years to grow more comfortable with the idea that Lestat wasn't just a daemon. It took me a lot longer than the others to realize it and accept it. Lestat has always known, Fenrir came in knowing, and Nico came in knowing.

7. Do you have your own memories from a potential past life or before being in the system? Do you have your own memories from in system? Is there a collective memory dump that anyone can access if necessary, or if wanted?

- Lestat has vague memories, but thinks they might have been psychologically created. Fenrir has limited, if any, memories and Nico has some memories, but it's confusing if they're my memories of the story or actually his memories he brought in. There might be a collective memory dump, but I don't know since I have large blank spots in my life and I can't access any memories that might have occurred during those times.

8. Do you have any stories you want to share that are fun?

- Lestat has a penchant for chocolate and ate so much that we got sick once.
- Fenrir tried to co-front and we about fell out of the shower because of it.
- Lestat has tried to teach Nico "slang" and it always comes out bad because neither one of them grew up with it (neither did I for that matter).

9. Do you have any advice for someone trying to find out if they're part of a Multiple System or not?

- Research and research some more.
- Look into other possibilities before jumping to the conclusion of being part of a system. Also try to see if you can live as a singlet for awhile because you might not be an actual system.
- Be careful you who you talk to and take things with a grain of salt.

Re: Multiple System Questionnaire
1. Does your system have a name? If so, what is it?
The Skarian

2. What type of system are you? (Multiple, median, etc.)
Multiple, I believe, taking a guess at the meaning.

3. How many members are in your system? What are your names, if you wish to share?
1. William (the moderator)
2. Solohman (the justicar)
3. Marrick (the observer)

4. Do any of you identify as non-human? If so, how many and what are you? Do any of you identify as human?
Solohman and Marrick are definitely non human, Solohman being an angel and Marrick an energy being. William, myself before being the awakening of the two, is strongly influenced by the Skarian and is indecisive over his humanity.

5. What is your theory on why you are part of a Multiple System? Are there different theories held by different members of the system?
Solohman believes the Skarian was formed in order to do a great good for the world or mankind, while Marrick does not speak, but strives to learn and observe the universe.


6. How did you reach the conclusion that you're a Multiple System? How long did it take you to realize that you were a System?

During my second year of highschool I was deeply pained for no apparent reason, when at the end Solohman emerged to end my pain and teach me my current beliefs.

7. Do you have your own memories from a potential past life or before being in the system? Do you have your own memories from in system? Is there a collective memory dump that anyone can access if necessary, or if wanted?

Both Solohman and Marrick have their memories which may be accessed at any time, Solohman having memories of warfare and Marrick has memories of the primordial chaos, the formation of stars and worlds forming and caressing planets to instill life in them.

8. Do you have any stories you want to share that are fun?

Solohman once got in a fight with my ex girlfriend over her drug use, he generally doesn't take control of the body, but he was so outraged at her display.

At some point I went through a phase of tulpaforcing in which I tried to personify Marrick. Unfortunately, he couldn't decide on a form and continuously reverted back to his usual mass of swirling black.

9. Do you have any advice for someone trying to find out if they're part of a Multiple System or not?

I simply felt a new presence, and eventually a second appeared and very slowly one began to speak and they both showed me some of their memories.

RE: Multiple System Questionnaire
1. Does your system have a name? If so, what is it?
I've used The Hive Mind before now, may stick to it. I dont know

2. What type of system are you? (Multiple, median, etc.)
Still unsure, but most likly a multiple or medium.

3. How many members are in your system? What are your names, if you wish to share?
Syra, Raven, Boi, Shadow and Lou. Possible another but they havent shown themself yet.

4. Do any of you identify as non-human? If so, how many and what are you? Do any of you identify as human?
Syra (genderfluid) - demon wolf and genet
Raven (male, he/him) - human
Boi (intersexed, he/him) domestic cat/dog
Shadow (male, he/him) - spirit smoke creature
Lou (female, she/her) - human

5. What is your theory on why you are part of a Multiple System? Are there different theories held by different members of the system?

I belive in reincarnation. So, based on that belief I was born into this body. However given this situation, ie there being lots of us in one body. I also consider that we were summoned maybe to the body. I don't belive I am just a person created by a childs mind to stop the pain. - syra

6. How did you reach the conclusion that you're a Multiple System? How long did it take you to realize that you were a System?

Raven appeared in 2009 but at the time i was going though a hard time and at that point i had never hear of this disorder. I knew lou existed for a long time but she never tried to communicate. Wasnt untill few years ago that shadow started causing problems and I began looking for answers. Largely tried to burry the idea and ignore the problems until boi a few months back. Only recently have I had to accept I'm multiple.

7. Do you have your own memories from a potential past life or before being in the system? Do you have your own memories from in system? Is there a collective memory dump that anyone can access if necessary, or if wanted?
I remember being in battle. Everything was on fire, a war zone. I was trying to protect someone when I was killed with a sword.

Still learning bout the rest honestly. I seem to be able to acess most memories but there are gaps. Particularly at the moment. Boi doesnt have a good memory and shadow deliberately blocks me from what he does.

8. Do you have any stories you want to share that are fun?
At work once or twice (we work customer service) shadow randomly fronts sometimes if he sees an attractive girl.

9. Do you have any advice for someone trying to find out if they're part of a Multiple System or not?
Cant really answer given I'm still trying to find advice myself.
Best I say is find other multiples and learn from experance. Lots of research

RE: Multiple System Questionnaire
I don't think I've ever actually spoken about my experience with being multiple, as I'm not overly open about it. I don't share my online accounts with any other system members so you will find that they don't speak here.


1. Does your system have a name? If so, what is it?
Not really, but we do share a name when we are combined or co-conscious.
When Orion and I co-front the name we share is Braham.
Chase likes to call us the "Skittles System" as a whole.


2. What type of system are you? (Multiple, median, etc.)
Multiple.


3. How many members are in your system? What are your names, if you wish to share?
There are 5 of us currently. Me, Orion, Preston, Chase, and Wheeljack.


4. Do any of you identify as non-human? If so, how many and what are you? Do any of you identify as human?
We all identify as nonhuman. I, Azaphaer, identify as a dragon and cybertronian. Orion, also identifies as cybertronian(Orion Pax), a willow tree, and is a polar bear therian. Preston identifies as cybertronian(Prowl) and a malinois. Chase identifies as cybertronian(Rodimus) and a red fox. Wheeljack identifies as cybertronian(Wheeljack) and a thermonuclear reactor.



5. What is your theory on why you are part of a Multiple System? Are there different theories held by different members of the system?

Orion and I believe that when we died our sparks(cybertronian lifeforce) combined and ended up reincarnating together in the same body. As for the others, we believe they arrived through a gateway from elsewhere.


6. How did you reach the conclusion that you're a Multiple System? How long did it take you to realize that you were a System?

It took me a long time to realize. Looking back I've been multiple for much longer than I know probably, but I really didn't figure it out until later in life. Mostly because there's no education on it, and I kept to myself and the other past members.


7. Do you have your own memories from a potential past life or before being in the system? Do you have your own memories from in system? Is there a collective memory dump that anyone can access if necessary, or if wanted?
No memories from in the system, but memories of past lives where we were in separate bodies.


8. Do you have any stories you want to share that are fun?
For fun? Maybe how Orion will sneak out whenever there's food around, which can leave irl friends spooked when our entire demeanor changes(I'm not out as plural).


9. Do you have any advice for someone trying to find out if they're part of a Multiple System or not?
Just honestly take your time, do your research and try and find other multiples to learn from.

RE: Multiple System Questionnaire
1. Does your system have a name? If so, what is it?
We are the Havok System!

2. What type of system are you? (Multiple, median, etc.)
Multiple, dissociative.

3. How many members are in your system? What are your names, if you wish to share?
Currently 14(ish). We are: Asher, hyakkimaru, Lacuna, Gutts, carson, hannya, seraph, night, Danny O., siobhán, Senkuu, Jeremy, Majima and sugar.

4. Do any of you identify as non-human? If so, how many and what are you? Do any of you identify as human?
More of us identify as nonhuman than not. Danny O., Majima, Jeremy and Senkuu are our only human alters.

5. What is your theory on why you are part of a Multiple System? Are there different theories held by different members of the system?
Yes, there are different theories held by different members of the system. We have all generally come to the consensus that it was more than likely our childhood trauma that caused our mind to fragment in such a way where we needed to become multiple in order to ensure survival. However, there are many of us who believe we were born naturally multiple, and that our trauma simply exacerbated it, and caused some of those natural processes to go a little haywire- hence why our internal communication is poor, and so on.

Some of us do believe in spiritual concepts like walk-ins, and we believe we are also prone to forming tulpas, as well. We believe that we have formed many tulpas unintentionally so far in our lives, and will likely continue to do so.

6. How did you reach the conclusion that you're a Multiple System? How long did it take you to realize that you were a System?
It took us until about 2013 - 2014 to realize that we were multiple. We had become aware of multiplicity when we found the otherkin community in 2011, and actually had an adverse reaction to the concept at first. We had never heard of anything like it...

Then, after not much time began to pass, we realized that the concept of plurality lined up more and more perfectly with our experience- the extreme differences in personality, "changing" likes and dislikes, loss of time, and so forth. People had been for years consistently commenting on how inconsistent we were- how we were always "changing" our opinions and how we seemed so drastically different from day to day. It was only a matter of time until we figured it out.

7. Do you have your own memories from a potential past life or before being in the system? Do you have your own memories from in system? Is there a collective memory dump that anyone can access if necessary, or if wanted?
Due to having endured heavy amounts of trauma in our early childhood, our memories are heavily splintered up between alters- certain memories, and even periods of our life are attached to certain alters, and those memories cannot be accessed by anyone but them.

There are many blocks and gaps in our memory, though there is a general pool that we can all draw from if needed, though it's very difficult to be able to add to it, and keep the information stable and accessible. A lot of the time, dissociative barriers don't permit, anyway.

8. Do you have any stories you want to share that are fun?
Some of our alters are capable of talking with the "back" of our mouth in such a way that it gives the quality of their voice the sound as though they are very far away, in another room- these alters are usually not fully fronting, but rather commenting from inside the headspace.

Also, Carson is so short that when he fronts, his posture is so drastically different that he has to shorten our cane by about 5 notches to get it to where he can comfortably use it. After he's done fronting, the rest of our alters have to fix it and make it tall again.

9. Do you have any advice for someone trying to find out if they're part of a Multiple System or not?
Don't worry about trying to figure out what type of system you are right out of the gates- it's less about figuring out what kind of system you are, and more about figuring out who you are. Figuring out the boundaries between each individual and gaining your independence, and expression, helps aid in the process of figuring out what kind of system you are. You can go from there, once you know who you are.

multiple system of 20±.
we are hyakkimaru, dib, gutts, jeremy, seraph, hoxton, and more.
