Can Alters Have Different Genders or Ages?

Yes. Alters can be any age or gender. The mind created alters during trauma when the brain tried to think of what the body needed to survive. Maybe the body was a 9-year-old girl, but the brain thought a 30-year-old man could survive what they were experiencing at the time. Now that 9-year-old girl’s body has a 30-year-old male alter.
