Applies toheadmates of median systems

Facet is a less-differentiated headmate, most commonly seen in median systems. They may present as an "alternate personality", holders of specific traits or emotions, or "masks" layered over a central headmate (called a core, blanketself, or other names). Typically, facets do not have amnesiac barriers, but not always.

Median systems commonly label their headmates as facets, while OSDD-1a systems sometimes do as well.

Facets that blur the line between kin and introject can identify as a fableing or factional.
