You might be a CLAMP character if...

  • Capes and cloaks are practical fashion accessories. They always hang properly, always have stiff collars that never fall over or flop around, and always conveniently trail behind you when moving at high speed at shoulder height, which obviates the possibility of getting tangled up in it and wiping out.

  • Impalement through any part of the body is merely an inconvenience, not a reason to visit the trauma unit of the local hospital.

  • People standing on objects several times too thin to support their body mass are a commonplace occurrance.

  • The fastest mode of locomotion is telekinetically-enhanced high jumping.
  • Your torso is three-quarters the size it should be and your legs twice as long as necessary.

  • Broad swords as long as their wielder is tall are usable weapons. They also rarely have any noticable weight.

  • Arrowhead-shaped chins are a common facial feature.

  • People can bleed enough to leave a trail several miles long but do not drop of shock until just after they get home.

  • Nobody ever loses their footing when moving at high speed. Ever. Everyone must be part mountain goat.

  • Pain is felt only in private. Attitude is everything, and showing any sign of discomfort means you're probably about to die.

  • Any weapon can be concealed inside a sleeve or arm if need be.

  • Whips, lashes, and other weapons that involve lengths of cord or rope can be perfectly cotrolled after they're cast. The end of a whip, for example, can snake through the air at will to remain on target if the wielder wishes.

  • Corollary to the last entry: Such weapons can cause massive property damage upon impact.

  • Use of psychic or magical abilities are preceeded by a freak gust of wind that causes the user's hair to rustle slightly. If you see this happen run like hell because your ass is on the line.

  • Corollary to the last entry: Amber eyes don't indicate Polish ancestry but out of control magickal or psionic ability. Once again, run like hell.

  • Rains of angel feathers or cherry blossoms are a common enough occurrance that will probably never appear on the evening news.

  • Hands can cut through flesh, bone, armour plate, and concrete blocks like tissue paper.

  • Red draperies dozens of meters long are a perfectly normal style of interior design. Your office is your throne room.

  • Common, everyday words are a source of constant wonder for you.

  • Your taste in fashion runs to pretty, flowy clothing (particularly dresses) or school uniforms.

  • You have odd looking metallic protrusions on either side of your head as well as hair, and you make it look good.

  • A glassy-eyed stare is your most endearing expression.

  • You can pull off the 'gothic lolita' look regardless of your age.
