The term is often mistakenly used to claim the status of a non-fictional living human being in an open court venue. The word individual and the word person both could actually be used to describe legal fiction.

For this reason, I am writing this definition at this public venue using a special appearance in rerum natura, ‘in the realm of actuality; in existence,’ (Black’s Law Dictionary, 6th edition) the opposite of being a fictitious person.

De rerum natura (Latin: de ˈre rʊn na ˈtu ra ; On the Nature of Things) is a first-century BC didactic poem by the Roman poet and philosopher Lucretius (c. 99 BC – c. 55 BC)
The universe described in the poem operates according to these physical principles, guided by Fortuna ("chance"),2 and not the divine intervention of the traditional Roman deities.
He argued that the deities (whose existence he did not deny) lived forevermore in the enjoyment of absolute peace—strangers to all the passions, desires, and fears, which affect humans—and totally indifferent to the world and its inhabitants, unmoved alike by their virtues and their crimes. This meant that humans had nothing to fear from them.
As an individual person, the content of my character is that of the Holy Okie Leprechaun Spirit, while in actuality that is only one of many characters that reside in my rerum natura.
