If the source gained is specifically a face or visual appearance, the headmate may be considered a (pre-)facetroject or (pre-)vistroject.

The fictive equivalent to this is pre-fictive.

If the headmate in question previously already held an introject identity, they may be called dualfactive or multifactive.

Pre-factives may or may not be amalgams or composites.

A headmate that started out as a factive but disconnected from their introject identity may be called a post-factive.
