Who IS Anathema Elemefayo?

Identity

  • Anathema is a bigender gorgon (pronouns he/him/she/her, often swapping between masc and femme pronouns mid-sentence when referring to him; e.g. He's going live on Twiltch, she's playing Flortnite)
  • Anathema's snake hair are left long, and "haircuts" are often when they shed their skin. The snake hairs are all referred to with they/them pronouns. The snakes name themselves, often to Ana's chagrin. Three of them are named Beans because they heard Millie the Bodega Cat say "beans" once, so Ana resorts to tying brown, green, and blue ribbons around them (Beans [Coffee], Beans [Coffee 2], Beans [Coffee 3s]). Often Ana's snakes names are sourced from his Twiltch chat, such as PinchersonGames, LGMBLDM42069, 360NoScope, etc.
