A drowser is a type of headmate who has the distinct ability to lull their system into sleep. They may also use their ability to induce sleepiness in their system's brain during periods of insomnia, or when rest is direly needed and not easy to attain otherwise.

The ability may be possible due to the drowser's own tendency to become sleepy, which they then pass onto other fronters or the entire front, or it may be a result of their willingness to fall asleep that they focus on to overcome another headmate's fear of sleeping.

History[edit | edit source]

The word was coined in 2020 by Cass of the Wool System, who is a drowser, herself. Drowser comes from the English word drowsy, meaning sleepy or lethargic.

Due to most people preferring to sleep during nighttime, this role may possibly overlap with that of a nightwatcher; however, a drowser's fronting ability is not limited to hours of the night.
