Species-fluid

So, in the months that I've known her, X, the secondary host, has been a vampire (mtf), an angel (changed sex at will/none), a ghost (changed at will/mostly male), and a ghost inhabiting a human body. (f) The sex is included because she 'is' trans. I say that with quotes because her 'original body' is gone. In the inner world. So... Her body affects her emotional state.
Genderfluid people's gender changes, sometimes depending on their circumstances.
X's species changes depending on her emotions. Vamp is angry, angel is happy, ghost is sad.
Is this sort of... Having sides? Fluidity? Something that anyone knows about? Is there a word for it?
I'm asking because she's shifting back towards vampire, and she's said she doesn't like that self. I'm worried for her own safety, the safety of the system, and the safety of the littles. She is an alcoholic, I believe. I don't want... She loves the littles. I don't want to see what would happen if she hurt them.

Some alters (or singlet people for that matter) can have an aspected identity, different facets. In the otherkin scene, people who are "polymorph" can have a very fluid species alignement in their identity.

DID word for it is a shape shifter.

Shifting sounds to be just a symbol to emotion, so the thing to worry about is emotions, what triggers them and so on. It's not nice to be angry, the ones who carry that feeling for the system have a hard job, and unfair one, but in the end all emotions are good and they all are important. Person can not be emotionally healthy without ability to get angry, it's what keeps us safe.

In traumatized person that anger can take forms where it's not that healthy but destructive. There can also be plenty of anger towards bad people, anger caused by trauma and helplessness. I don't think there's any difference in healing trauma or learning how to share and express the feeling right ways if you're a shape shifter or not. I would find out why she doesn't like to be angry, is it about feeling bad, or about beliefs where being angry is somehow bad or wrong, because it's not.

It's not easy or nice, but it's not wrong. It just needs a let out.
