My Plural System

I have always felt like one body fitting many personalities, which I have transferred into art. I have multiple OCs, each of which reflect myself in some way, and have evolved to be souls at this point. Some of them are going to introduce themselves here, while others are very very shy. Collectively, we call ourselves the Olympus System.

Kirina: I am the tease. I am a dancer, bellydancer to be specific. I am a daughter of Eros, the Greek god of seduction. I rarely front, but when I do, it puts us in a "freaky" mood. (Female, demigod)

Malina: I am the warrior spirit of our body. I am the one who drives Ravenna to drive the body to train, and I am the one who tends to be pessimistic. I front quite often, usually when I am mad. (Female, half-demon)

Marii: I'm the basket case. The one who gives us the random exististential crises. The crazy one. That's me. (Agender, human)

Redrift: Adrenaline junkie. 'nuff said. (Male, human-wolf hybrid)

Mayonaka: When I front, that's when we have a depressive episode. Because of this, I try not to front, but when I do, I try to reign myself in. (Female, human)

Ravenna: I am the one who fronts most often. The somewhat nerdy, outgoing, friendly pansexual girl who is poly but too damn shy to make a move on anybody. I think I get that from Chikyu because she's very careful about relationships and doesn't want us to get our hearts stomped on. (Female, wolfkin and therian)

Chikyu: H-hi...I'm Chikyu Tsuki. I am extremely shy, and I'm the friend who has issues. Familial, relationship, mental, I got 'em all. (Biologically female but androgynous, human)

(Hello! We're glad to see someone who also seems to think of it as multiple souls in one body. Hope to see you all around!)

I have always thought of it that way. Not as split personalities, but as multiple souls. I feel like people who have split personality disorders aren't actually ill, but that they are plural systems that haven't fully awakened yet.

I wouldn't say it's about awakening and souls, since plurality caused by trauma is still something that's pretty commonplace in the plural community. DID and OSDD are definitely disorders, speaking as someone who had friends with either disorder, and were plural because of trauma.

We personally ascribe to the idea of our system being because of souls and spiritual factors, but not everyone does. :)
 
The best way I can really explain it just from personal experience is that with plurality, there are two types at a basic level. One is traumagenic, which is a word used to describe plurality caused by trauma, which is what DID/OSDD are. Endogenic is the word for plurality that isn't caused by trauma, so things like tulpamancy, soulbonding, and just... naturally ending up with headmates/system members.

Take my information with a grain of salt though, that's pretty basic, and only based on my understanding after being in the community for 2-3 years. It's definitely worth doing more research into just what plurality encompasses, if you're curious.

(If you're wondering too, we're an example of endogenic plurality. Alex has experienced plurality since childhood, but nothing traumatic caused it, or a disorder associated with it.)
