An amalgam is a type of headmate that has a source but has a different relationship with it than an introject. Instead of directly coming from the source, the majority of amalgams already existed, before picking up traits of a source and taking it up as part of their identity.

Amalgams may begin their lives as introjects, before gaining an additional source and becoming one alongside being an introject.

Amalgamation[edit | edit source]

Amalgamation is the process of becoming an amalgam. It may be sudden or gradual, and may or may not be a choice (if so, the amalgam may also identify as intentive).

Amalgamation may also be the result of fusion, depending on how the fused identifies.
