Chakat ThornBrier here, as you can guess, I am a Chakat. For me this phase is a little more than just "my fursona is a chakat." I have many Fursonae, all of them are a part of ME, but I never said 'I am a squirrel' or 'I am a xinurec.' Until I 'became' Chakat ThornBrier a few weeks ago I often flipped around between my fursonae quite rapidly. 'Being' any one of them just wouldn't have been appropriate. But being Chakat has stabilized me.
Therians have been brought up here already, and aside from the arrogance and hostility I commonly see in Therians, I find myself identifying with them despite not believing in the supernatural of any kind.
Essentially, to me, mentally, I am a Chakat, and I thank Bernard Doove (Goldfur) for creating them. I even tried creating my own version. The Shozi are something uniquely mine, but inspired by Chakats, and its not me. I am Chakat.
Ironically, I used to be a follower of The Secret and Abraham's "Law of Attraction," but I realized it was all bunk because their teachings said I could have that which I desired, but as I looked deeper into their ways, they said I would never become Chakat physically.
