|Other forms||Dissociagen (n.)|
|Applies to||systems, headmates|
|Coiner||Peaceful Dark Clouds|
A dissociagenic system or headmate is one that formed as a result of dissociation, be it that the process of dissociation caused it to form, that it was formed as a means of coping with the dissociation, or otherwise.
This may manifest as a system returning from a dissociative episode and discovering that, as opposed to a previous headmate fronting or a hidden headmate coming out of hiding to front, an entirely new headmate has formed and begun fronting.
History[edit | edit source]
This term was coined in the Pluralpedia Discord server in July of 2021 by a member of Peaceful Dark Clouds, who had wanted a term to best describe many of their headmates' origins. It is not intended to be gatekept to systems with dissociative disorders.
Dissocia is derived from the word dissociation, while -genic is a suffix indicating "produced by", "formed by", or "originating from".
