Wow you all seem to have so many!

I wonder if there's anymore in our system Kit never realised?

We are

Kit (original self, born into body)
Bobby (child alter, never comes out but sends thoughts mainly to Kit)
Thea (host for 15 years in late teens to mid 30's)
Maddie (host from mid 30's to late 40's)
Sioux - me! .. I was actually present in Kit's early teens and dealt with school until Kit first experienced hearing loss, then seem to have been recalled recently, as Kit after trying for the last year or so to be the only host up front and live 'as herself' as realised she can't 'manage life' without at least one host to deal with everything social.

Kit has said she did have others what they thought as 'imaginery friends' during childhood but they haven't been seen since before I first took over 'school duties' in secondary school. Whether they were in fact 'child alters' too we don't know as obviously we had no idea about DID back then.

Kit has mentioned another male voice who told her what to do in a medical emergency but she didn't know whether this is was just her memories of what her dad would have told her to do if he was still here or whether there's someone else in there. Kit thought it disturbing to think there was a 'strange man inside' and preferred to believe it was her dad sending messages from above (ie as an angel - he passed away some years ago) to help her. If there are others they have never made themselves known to any of others. None of us (5) have any memories of Kits early life from birth to around 7-8yrs old, so there maybe another 'little' in there somewhere protecting us from those memories?

So its been a while since we did a roll call thing, and usually v2 does that stuff but I'm gonna do it this time. :) We'll go alphabetically cos its fair and stuff. First up, here's the 17 of us we know for sure.

Arin - 22yo female - when we first met her she was a little still dealing with trauma stuff but last january she grew up and came out front and became one of our like regular front people. She's into photography. She went deep into the void tho in the summer and has been sorta inactive since then. :(

Charlie - 6yo male - he's a protector, he used to be really worried about other littles coming out and exposing us or whatever, but since our 'crisis' started we're pretty florid or whatever so that job isn't so important. The other thing he does tho is he kinda takes pain for us if we get hurt. He's pretty brave and stuff. He likes legos and star wars, and starwars legos. :)

Claire - age slider female - she holds some of our oldest trauma stuff. She appears either as an infant or a 20yo girl. She has a lotta depression and sadness and despair. She's still deep inside in the dark place.

Ewan - 4yo male cat - he was originally a boy and had a lotta trauma stuff going on, mostly with like abandonment issues and stuff. He really wanted a mommy but we couldn't give him that, so "L" turned him into a cat, now he's happy. Right now, Melissa and Janet and Charlie look after him inside.

"Guardian" - 28yo male - he's a protector, he stays inside and watches over the ones in the dark place or who have lotsa trauma stuff still. He keeps us and them separate, like protects the rest of the system from them, and protects them from us? He doesn't talk much, we dunno much about him.

Janet - age slider female - she's sometimes 4yo and sometimes maybe 12yo. We don't know much about her, she is secretive and hides alot inside.

Kate - 17/22yo female catgirl - she is currently keeping herself isolated in her own private inner world. Her age thing is a bit wierd cos she's 22 but looks 17. She's smart, studying biochem in university (in her inner world). She doesnt want anything to do with the rest of us & hates having DID and stuff, so keeping herself isolated makes her happy and spares the rest of us from her negative thots about us.

"L" - 14/infinite female - another wierd age thing, she looks like a 14yo girl but her age is like 'infinity' or something. she's super powerful, magic, fae or sorceress or something. She can fix things inside, change things, change alters. But she doesn't do anything that isn't wanted. She's sorta mystical too. She's like 'neutral' tho, like not good or evil. She doesn't like her name written out tho so we just use her first initial to talk about her.

Melissa - 7yo female - our most active little, tho she's been quiet alot lately. She likes cartoons, my little pony, moana, tangled, and a few others. She knows alot about our system, she's been active for a long time and knows her way around and stuff.

Mike - 35yo male - he's another protector, he watches out for like outside threats. like people trying to use us or deceive us, physical threats & danger & stuff. When hes not doing that, he likes hockey & football (soccer) & sometimes f1 racing.

Nyssa - 10yo female - she's kinda difficult to understand sometimes, she likes darkness and death and blood and stuff. she sometimes makes us bleed cos she wants to "make sure were still alive". We're pretty sure she holds like, all the times we shoulda died when we were little.

Rebecca - 30/infinite female - another wierd age thing, she's like ageless and doesn't usually have a body, but when she does it's sorta 30ish woman. She's myterious and stuff, but she acts like an observer, she keeps her emotions suppressed, and she's also sometimes a protector - she protects us from ourselves, like if we're gona do something stupid or dangerous. She fronts when we go into like complete crisis shutdown. She likes tea. :)

Tegan - 5yo female - she's another trauma holder. She lives sorta locked in a tower inside, and experiences loneliness but shes also afraid to be with people and stuff. We don't know much more about her.

V1 - 22yo female - one of our main front people. She's the one who first took over after previous host went away. She was originally mostly here for like health and fitness and stuff, but after she took over she had to expand and do more. She has anxiety problems and disappeared for like 13 or 14 months once cos she was overwhelmed. Also likes body piercing / body mods.

V2 - 16yo female - another main front person. She likes to be social and be with friends and stuff, likes pop music & also likes body piercing / body mods. Currently hiding / sulking inside cos she's mad at V1 lol.

Viola - 17yo female catgirl - (me!) another main front person. Recently went through some big changes inside and still figuring myself out, but for now doing most of the fronting for our system.

"Waste" - unknown - another trauma holder, we don't know what they look like at all. Inside they appear as (or hiding under) a pile of literal trash. feelings of like, worthnessness, uselessness, hopelessness, they feel like they're literally garbage. :(

In addition to all them, there's 2 we don't know for sure, they're like fragments or whatever maybe?

"Anger" - unknown - pure emotion, rage, destructive anger. We don't feel anger so much and we think it gets like syphoned off and stored and when it overflows we blow up and yell and shout and break stuff. So "Anger" only comes out at home, alone, where noone can see. We're trying not to let that happen tho cos its ungood.

"Maddie" - unknown - when "anger" is frustrated and can't come out, sometimes it turns into "Maddie" which is sorta the same but the violence directs back on us. Like instead of smashing furniture or whatever, it makes us wanna hurt our body instead. :(

And finally theres 2 we know for sure used to exist but we know for sure they don't exist any more.

"previous host" - 18yo female - she was our main front person / public face / body name from just before the body's 18th birthday till our DID crisis started in 2017. She didn't know about DID or being multiple or whatever. Lotsa denial and stuff. When the crisis began she couldn't deal with it and she ended herself. Sorta made herself disolve or disintigrate or whatever, like smoke in the wind. Eventually a new alter formed from her dust or whatever.

"first host" - we don't like talkinga bout them at all. even previous host hated them. they kept us alive for the first 17 years or so, thats the nicest thing we can say. They weren't gonna keep us alive much longer tho. they hung around in the system for a few years after preivous host took over then they just faded away. Eventually a new alter formed outta their dust or whatever.

So that's all that we know of.

I have really enjoyed this thread and it makes me feel like it's okay to say who's who. At least here. Our signature has names, but nothing more detailed. I'm gonna try to go in order of appearance:

The Kid - 4yo, sees everything and is often scared and lonely, but not allowed to speak

Critic - 40ish? angry, critical yelling lady. She keeps everyone else from talking to The Kid. I think she's a protector, but she doesn't realize her methods are damaging and ineffective.

Jukebox - literally a fifties diner jukebox. Plays songs to drown out Critic's yelling. Sometimes delivers messages via songs

Rachel - 14yo girl, emotionally volatile, passionate, acts out and self injures as coping mechanisms. "sister" to Rachel Joy

Rachel Joy - 16yo girl, calm and detached, handles stress and trauma by floating out of body from it. Has become a sort of inner manager by default, as she is the best at handling everyday stress. "sister" to Rachel.

SS3NDASS - ageless, little demon/alien girl, purple skin and black eyes, writes in secret language and keeps secrets for the whole system, especially The Kid.

Killer - adult male serial murderer, wears a black mask. Actually a protector who tries to eliminate any possible needs we can't meet.

Void - ageless, genderless, shaved head, anorexic. An attempt to " wipe the slate clean" . Shows up before new alters emerge.

Keda - 21ish girl, submissive and dedicated, wants to serve someone else who will make decisions and keep her safe, "sister" to Taty

Taty - 26ish girl, dominant and independent, manipulates and charms, "sister" to Keda.

Rae - 30yo, genderless, analytical and emotionless, created to go to school and work

Raelly - 15ish girl, teen babysitter who seems to be stuck in the 1980s. Relatively carefree and fun, seems unaware of trauma. Possibly arrived to help The Kid.
Rae - current host

The Others:
Rachel, Rachel Joy, Keda, Taty, SS3NDASS, Killer, Critic, Kid, Void, and Jukebox
