Protector alters save the original or other personalities from intolerable or life threatening environments and people.
A Protector can be any age and gender
The reason I’m female is that women had all the real power in my family.
The day I became a protector my Mother was beating us with a broom stick.
When she stopped I picked up the stick and hit her with it as hard as I could.
She was so shocked that she stopped using the stick on us.
Today I am still protecting the body.
Only now I protect it from us.
Why am I still needed?
