The Well of Rebirth and Emotion ~
Which Demon of Existence are You Aligned With?
1. Are you easily moved by witnessing emotional events?
Yes; but the slightest things can influence my mood greatly, setting me often to tears.
Yes; and the emotion I see is rarely positive, and the tragedy leaves me stricken.
No; on the rare occasion that I am, it's difficult to tell. Only those especially close to me can sense it.
No; if anything I regard other people's grief and emotion with derision. It is only in the rarest case that I myself am afflicted, and afterward I'll deny it.
No; I have seen too many things for the simple sight of emotion to affect me. I still have respect for it, but it personally does not affect me.
No; I'm not
moved, but I can be in certain situations. And when that happens, I don't do anything to hide or disguise that fact.
No; I am unmovable, though I am polite, even friendly to those otherwise afflicted.
No; on the rare occasion that I am, it passes quickly, onto another, completely different feeling.
2. Are you world-weary?
Of course not; I can always find something to attract my attention, and the world is reborn to me.
More than that, I am world-hurt. I feel like I have seen too many things, and they still pain me terribly.
Yes; there is too much negativity and unpleasant aspects of the world, and I feel that all I can ever do is stand back and watch, helpless to even react.
No, for I am lacking in that capacity. I watch everything calmly, with no feeling either way.
No, though I am not blind to the agony of survival, and try to provide something of a comfort to those more stricken.
If I am, the feeling soon passes, to be replaced with yet another slight emotion.
Yes, but it's only led me to become bitter, lashing out occasionally at those I blame.
No, there's too much suffering and pain left to cause for me to become tired.
3. Are you concerned about the state of the world?
I am, and I do my best to aid it, even if it means putting it out of it's misery....
Only because it affects myself. If it had no influence on me, I wouldn't give a damn.
Passingly; I give it only an occasional thought or feeling, but most of the time I don't really care.
Yes, I worry much over it because there is so much that is ill. However, I know I can do naught about it.
Sometimes, but it doesn't get in the way of my own personal goals.
Yes, though I see it as it affects all things, and make little attempt to aid or harm. I am usually just the passive observer of it.
Unfortunately so, and I can see that it's only getting worse; yet I trust that as bad as it is, everything will eventually improve.
Yes, but I am very calm about it, analyzing the situation, and rationally coming up with ways to benefit it.
4. What is your view on War?
A good hobby, if the right purity of motivation is behind it! Without that, there's no point.
It is another sad invention, used only to increase the miserable state of the world, and will only continue to be so.
It is an unfortunately natural state of events, that will continue to occur so long as there is life in the world.
It is something that can be done for good or ill, and can be a very useful tool if utilized properly.
Of passing amusement, though I laugh at the people who claim they're doing it for the good of anyone, especially if it's over something as silly as religion or morals.
Very entertaining, a great way to show off strength and power, and to prove your might to others.
I don't like it very much at all, because of all the suffering and unpleasantness that occurs because of it. If people feel the need to be violent, why can't they take it out in more wholesome ways?
It comes, it goes, it comes again. That's about it.
5. If you were part of a kingdom, what would your role be?
The figurehead leader, who knows more of what's going on than the others think.
The diplomat and mediator, also a spy, holding everyone together, or tearing everyone apart with what words I bring, or deny.
The power behind the throne, always present, but rarely noticed.
A military leader, cruel and cunning, gaining power more for themself than for the sake of the kingdom.
A mercenary, who only stays as long as there is reason to.
An oppressed peasant, understanding their lot in life is to suffer, and nothing outside of that.
A beloved, but abused, courtesan who is privy to many secrets, but unable to share them.
A noble eagerly rising in power through both trickery and honest deeds, determined to continue to rise in stature.
6. Of these things, which do you dislike/hate most?
Being misunderstood, either my words and actions, or by simply being who I am.
Only that I sometimes cannot control the effects of my actions, and they end up unintentionally hurting others.
Being mocked, derided - looking like a fool.
Forced idleness, the inability to continue on.
Being left alone, both mentally and physically.
It changes depending on my mood; there isn't one set hatred.
I'm really not bothered by much of anything.
Change without warning, things occurring beyond prediction or understanding.
7. You're walking, and see a critically wounded cat on the sidewalk. It's clear that it will die soon. Your action?
Barely glance at it, and walk on by, almost immediately forgetting about it.
Laugh at it; you're alive and soon it won't be.
Pick it up, despite the blood, and walk around trying to find it's owners, mainly just to yell at them for their carelessness.
Stand nearby and watch, making no move to aid or harm, then quietly walking on once it's clear it has expired.
Gently but firmly snap it's neck, wanting to spare it lingering agony.
Kneel next to it, and try to keep it company, so that it wouldn't be alone while it died.
Curl up next to it, sobbing quietly, and remaining there for some length of time.

2-Player Fighting. Simple, quick, mash buttons. Wait, there's combos?
Some sort of pet-raising sim. Especially if it's sort of cute.

Hide from it; only trying weakly to hold things together, I end up retreating so I don't drag others down with me.
Lash out; even if I can't fix the source of the problem, I'll take it out on anything around me.
Analyze the situation logically; if I think carefully enough, I'm sure I can find some solution.

Not really; there are always many little cracks and problems with my stability, but since they're so common, I'm used to being beset by these issues.
19. Do you lie to yourself about your own faults?
No, for that would be detrimental. If something is truly a problem, then I will attempt to fix it.
No, even if it seems as if I do. It's only that others have a lot more problems than I do, and I see to inform them regularly of those faults.
