Mergegenic (murj·jen·ik) is an origin term for a headmate who formed as a result of a merge or fusion. A mergegenic headmate is not the merge/fusion themself. Rather, they are their own separate person, who is able to exist regardless of whether or not the original merge components are currently merged.
Term Origin[edit | edit source]
This term comes from the word “merge,” meaning “to combine or unite into a single entity." The suffix -genic describes system origins.
Related Terms[edit | edit source]
Merging or fusion is when two or more headmates temporarily or permanently combine into one.
Incarnagenic headmates are those formed through non-harmful merging or splitting.
History[edit | edit source]
"Mergegenic" was coined by the Felight system in January 2023, as they were unable to find a term that described the origin of their tulpa Piano Soul, who formed through a now-defunct merge in 2017.
