Interesting bit of info about Pi

An interesting bit of information about Pi, the shapeshifter that lives in my head with the rest of us:

He's very bestial in some ways... growls and hisses at stuff he doesn't like, revels in shape-shifting into monstrous forms. Hell, the other day he didn't feel remotely humanoid; more like some kind of giant spider/reptile hybrid. He wanted to crawl into an upper corner of the bedroom and build a silk nest there. I don't think he really would have, if he could; not with Amy in the house, anyway. I can just imagine her coming into the dark room, turning her head left, and seeing glowing red eyes from the corner of the room, and running away screaming, never to be seen again.

BUT...

He is also very well-spoken.

Okay, there's this thing we do sometimes of running the same hypothetical stimulus through the imagination of each of us, to see how each would respond. It's something to pass the time, and it does often have good uses. Anyway, we were doing that the other day, the hypothetical stimulus was "Somebody on the Internet criticizes something in something we posted, and it isn't grammar." Alex had one of two possible reactions, and both were different ways of telling the person to fuck off. One was very very angry, the other was calm, but still had his characteristic "grumpy" signature.
When Pi's turn came up, he hissed at it, but then calmly responded "If ever I find myself desirous of your opinion, I shall consult you at that time. For now, however, I shall disregard you."

Pi's voice, in my head, sounds pretty cool. Deep, but not as deep as Negarahn's voice, and not inflected the same way. I wish y'all could hear it.

... Michelle's species? What?
Similar in the spider form and not seeming human. Michelle mostly prefers the plant form because I'm scared of it, and I kind of suspect she manufactured that fear. She will occasionally have part of her go as a spider... she prefers not too as it feels weird. Throws her off.

Michelle denies being Pi, and considers the notion retarded and a terrible assumption. Is offended by it too.

Weird all the similarities in multiples I've noted. Alex tends to be sense of humour personality (your collective has this not quite the case), Mike/Michelle/Micheal/Mikheil is usually the protective personality and a few other really weird similarities.

Also on the voice... let's try describing Michelle, and you could mention the differences here:
* Odd clicking noise
* Really polite in presentation... not nice... but polite
* Generally avoids swearing
* Sounds sophisticated... but in a way of something pretending to be human
* Has issues comprehending emotions
* Sinister sound in the voice, like you are talking to somebody doing something terrible. She could be talking about cupcakes, and it would still sound evil
* Not so much deep--not really high pitched, but more... like it is being said from the diaphragm, and the diaphragm is insanely large compared to how big diaphragms usually are.
* Tends to "cheat" on universal laws... mostly finds ways around them
* Kind of engages things that ticks her off by eating them... or strangling them while restraining them and threatening to just hold them there
* Finds blood delicious
* Hangs out in places that generally would shred most people trying to get into there.
* Her voice sound doesn't seem to come from a mouth... it can, but that is only when she desires to be polite

Typically Michelle is the one that runs the hypothetical stimulus experiments... try asking Pi what she'd do if she did those. If she starts madly giggling... it is another similarity.

Re: ... Michelle's species? What?
Pi is a he.

And I'm not sure I understand your last question. Ask Pi if he does those what? Oh wait, Michelle's traits you mean?

Well... I think it's Pi who has been craving blood lately. So check.
Clicking noise? Possibly, I can't recall for certain.
Polite and avoids swearing? Kind of. He tends to growl/hiss or make other weird bestial noises rather than swear.
"Sounds sophisticated... but in a way of something pretending to be human" Um... well he isn't human. So... I think "check."

"Has issues comprehending emotions" Nope. Well, we can all feel the emotions of others, but can't always understand their source. We all have difficulty understanding the motives of other human beings. Some things humans do are a total WTF to us.

"* Sinister sound in the voice, like you are talking to somebody doing something terrible. She could be talking about cupcakes, and it would still sound evil"

Hmm... check, kind of. Not always so, but often enough.

"* Not so much deep--not really high pitched, but more... like it is being said from the diaphragm, and the diaphragm is insanely large compared to how big diaphragms usually are."

No idea.

"* Tends to "cheat" on universal laws... mostly finds ways around them"

Well... he's Vrayshra, AKA Omni-Daemon, meaning his people can turn into literally anything they can imagine. Fire, light, stone, lava, creeping darkness, etc.

"* Kind of engages things that ticks her off by eating them... or strangling them while restraining them and threatening to just hold them there"

Hmm... I don't know. Possibly.

"* Hangs out in places that generally would shred most people trying to get into there."

I don't know about "tends to," but could.

"* Her voice sound doesn't seem to come from a mouth... it can, but that is only when she desires to be polite"

No, he usually has a mouth. Some forms don't, though. Robot forms tend to have speakers or something of the sort.

Re: ... Michelle's species? What?
I kind of guessed Pi was a he. Michelle is a she... and oh god let's DEFINITELY not put the two in the same room.

Nope. Well, we can all feel the emotions of others, but can't always understand their source. We all have difficulty understanding the motives of other human beings. Some things humans do are a total WTF to us.

Kind of what I meant... Michelle is constantly trying to run situations on me to try to figure that stuff out.

"* Tends to "cheat" on universal laws... mostly finds ways around them"
Well... he's Vrayshra, AKA Omni-Daemon, meaning his people can turn into literally anything they can imagine. Fire, light, stone, lava, creeping darkness, etc.

I meant more stuff that Lovecraft would write about... Noneularian motion and other cosmic horror playground ideas.

-=-

I was mostly asking... as it seems I managed to get a similar species to be my protective personality. Which scares me... mostly in that there is more than one of whatever Michelle is (it frightens her as well) and that one is in your skull too.

Michelle mentions she doesn't do the robot often as thanks to all the people making material around robots it is "difficult to come up with new and interesting ways to be a jerk as a robot and to mess with people. It kind of is expected with robots now that they will be trying something."

We mostly wish to figure out someway to confirm that Pi isn't similar to Michelle, in a way that causes worry.

Have you considered attempting to have Pi file reports and information? Michelle has mentioned a weird, almost instinctual, inability to not file and sort stuff.

There are comments she isn't allowing me to write, involving contemporary autistic Hollywood characters being connected to her.

Yeah... and nightmares again for me tonight...

Noneularian? Do you mean non-euclidean?

Despite similarities, I don't think they're the same species. For one, Pi's species has a "true form" = humanoid, smooth grass green skin, and very long and distinctive ears that come to a point and are prehensile.

The Vrayshra do live in another dimension, but it's not a non-euclidean one.

Michelle mentions she doesn't do the robot often as thanks to all the people making material around robots it is "difficult to come up with new and interesting ways to be a jerk as a robot and to mess with people. It kind of is expected with robots now that they will be trying something."

Pi doesn't shapeshift to mess with people; he does it because he enjoys it. And his people do it to help them hunt; some of their prey can shape-shift into one sort of something, like maybe fire or water.

Vrayshra mainly eat life-force like the Wraith of Stargate: Atlantis do. But the amount of energy they get from prey is proportionate to the potential lifespan of the creature they're eating, and most of their prey can live hundreds or even thousands of years. Eating a human would be like eating a light snack. And they don't eat sophonts if they can help it. The one exception is feeding from phoenixes; phoenixes in that universe are sentient and have infinite life force, so feeding from one doesn't hurt it. In fact, they have to be careful not to take too much from a phoenix when they feed, or risk exploding.

I do have a story idea involving a rogue Vrayshra trapped on Earth, forced to eat the life-force of babies because they have more food value to Vrayshra than adults do. This rogue pretends to be a nurse in maternity wards. Because of the poor food value of humans, s/he is having to eat every few days, where Vrayshra normally only have to feed about once every two weeks.

Vrayshra don't eat the meat of the bodies often, as adults. Only babies and children do. Vrayshra are able to convert energy/matter from one form to another, and when adults do make use of the meat, they basically convert the body into energy and absorb it.

Actually, there are two related species of Omni-Daemon. Vrayshra are the most populous species. The other species is Pyenari. Pyenari can get more out of their food to begin with, and they can also eat souls; they have trans-dimensional spirit tendrils that are "barbed," and they trap and pierce the soul and drain its energy. Again, they prefer to avoid eating sophonts. Their bodies are also more efficient at energy/matter conversion. All this means they have to eat less frequently, about once a month. The Vrayshra tend to hate the Pyenari, but I suspect the Pyenari will outcompete the Vrayshra into extinction.

I don't know for sure if Pi is Vrayshra, but I think he is.

Oh, and both species, their children are born four-legged and unable to shape-shift. They undergo two puberties. The first puberty painfully shifts them to humanoid form. The second puberty gives them shape-shifting powers.

Have you considered attempting to have Pi file reports and information? Michelle has mentioned a weird, almost instinctual, inability to not file and sort stuff.

I dunno.

I have no idea if Michelle has a true form... she has lied about it in the past. At one point it was a toothed duck... uh... yeah...

Pi doesn't shapeshift to mess with people; he does it because he enjoys it.

Michelle states she enjoys messing with people and she enjoys shape shifting. She could choose to not mess with people... but that would just seem like half running the race.

Pyenari sounds more like Michelle. Michelle doesn't really use her barbs. Something about it not being sporting enough. Removes the fun.

The Pyenari have no interest in out competing the Vrayshra... as there isn't any amusement in that. As sort of, "Wwwwwhhhhhhhhhyyyy?? What would we get out of that? Would it be particularly funny how we did it?"

Also... Michelle states that she is happy her species has a name. Usually that never happens... and she is giggling up a storm about it. "They have something they calllllllsssss uuuuusssssss! Eeeeeee~~~ <3 <3 <3 <3 <3"

Kind of similar to an Oglaf Comic (Survivor) for how that tends to usually work.

Have you considered attempting to have Pi file reports and information? Michelle has mentioned a weird, almost instinctual, inability to not file and sort stuff.

I dunno.

Suddenly... I think I realised the reason why Michelle is such a jerkface. It is her getting back at her instinctual requirement to file and order stuff.

In fact... if it turns out that Michelle is a Pyenari, this Rainman type quality might be how they ended up more efficient hunters... and why they scare people.

Just imagine C'thulhu being required to count every toothpick, order it in size and shape (by C'thulhu standards)... and using that ability to sort and improve its own ability to kill.

the amount of energy they get from prey is proportionate to the potential lifespan of the creature they're eating, and most of their prey can live hundreds or even thousands of years. Eating a human would be like eating a light snack

It would explain why/how Michelle got me to have immortality around like ten or eleven. Increase the life span of the food you are eating means more time to feed onto something.
