OC is collective for ''owned character'' ''original content'' or ''original character'' usually describing a character or creation that is either franchised
, branded, or owned by a lone person or company.
Whilst a Persona is a character the author identifies with, not necessarily as self-insert, which is the author drawn in an art style
or as a character.
an OC Persona
is a character that does not look like the author, but primarily the author's ''personal'' view on how they'd want to be like in a completely fictional world. it is more in-depth and the character has backstory unrelated to the author's real life. An OC persona
also does not share the real name of the Author.
''Name'' is neither an OC
, they do not have my actual name, but I use them as ''me'' instead of my face.
''Name'' is an OC Persona, they're a bit more personal with the story tropes that I like, so I identify with this character quite a lot when writing.
My OC is also kind of my persona
, though more of a character, since I don't look like them.
