Soul bonders - like otherkin and their connection to animals - often hold themselves to either have a special connection to, or be a reincarnation of, a particular fictional character; this usually manifests as either strong feelings of closeness and/or the ability to hear the character's voice in their head at any given time.

If the fictional character is from anime or manga, the soul bonders will often refer to themselves as otakin or otakukin.
