My fursona is my representation of myself in the fandom.
He is based heavily off of me, but also things I would love to do.

My fursona is also a nod to my cat. When I made a fursona, I kinda dedicated the species to him.

I can't believe I haven't posted in this thread yet.

Cell is... Me, but "complete." My shortcomings, ideally, are absent in him. He's me as I could perhaps have been in some impossible, perfect dream world.
The song Missing says that "Something's missing in me, / I felt it deep within me"

I do my best to pull in those missing, perfect things into Cell. As for the name, it was initially just what sounded good. But there's kind of a symbolism there, too.
A cell is pretty much the most basic unit of a living thing. Singular and whole. That's what my fursona can be: A dream me, stripped to the basic, good attributes. Light-natured and happy. At least in my head.

Hence, my fursona represents me on the internet, where we can do our best to hide flaws behind the masks of screens and text. The ideal me is Cell. Because he exists in my mind's eye, he can interact directly with my two muse characters and keep them in line.
He has the capability to be both a separate entity and me simultaneously, if that makes sense.

...That's about it, I guess.
Meh.

My fursona is a representation of myself. He has my personality, as well as flaws and strengths. I don't think of him as a friend or child, but rather something adjacent to what I am.

My alternate 'sona is a bit more confident and outgoing; she does better than I do in most situations, though comes with other downfalls. She's what I'd like to be.

Me, just a cuter more likable version with more piercings. I tried making them as like me as possible, though. Pink hair and all.

They're also pretty personal to me, since they're ME and has all of my favorite things.

Vanilla is me, but she's also a form of comfort for myself, if im upset I can usually draw Vanilla smiling and it'll make me equally as happy, just for a little bit at least.

Axle is my confident side. He is really carefree, and crazy.
Donny, is actually more like my actual self, but a little bit geeky

She's kind of got her own personality, but for the most part, Dolly is like a happier, maybe idealized version of myself.

She's how I wish I could act, if I didn't restrain myself at all. More wily and aggressive than I allow myself to be in the real world.

Panda is 100% me, same personality, fashion sense, whatever. I've seen some people complain about when people make their fursonas "self-inserts" or don't flesh out backstories, and that makes....no sense to me. If you want your fursona to be an extension of yourself, what's wrong with that? I'd feel weird doing any sort of backstory for Panda anyways since they're me.

Icee is a little more of my ideal self, and/or just a generic edgy character. I use them for things like vent art in order to keep Panda's image "cleaner" (that's a weird word for it but u know). Just cuz I do non-furry events as Panda and I'd feel weird if someone stumbled across a super personal art piece of this big fluffy mascot they met last weekend LOL

My fursonas mean everything to me tbh. I've almost had both of them 10 years now. It might seem silly or weird, but when something's been a constant in your life for that long, you just tend to get sentimental about it ^^

My sona is jus a character that I really treasure a lot and I like pretending to be. I don't think I consider any of them to be like actually me or a very good representation at all although some of my sonas do represent aspects of myself or things I would like to be. I think it's very hard to represent using a character there will always be limitations.

I've had my main sona for 7 years or so probs longer. It came because I wanted something different and cool. I used one of my side characters (to my mascot character at the time who fell into disuse but has some similarities to my sona too) as inspiration who was cool and kinda represented something I liked.
Plus I was inspired by the hybrid concept, I love mixing stuff hence I have a lemurdog sona. I wanted something exotic mixed with something more mundane, I guess I was slightly inspired by the raccoon cat kinda concept. I had raccoon like characters before and then I wanted something different and lemurs was want I chose lol. Not because of king Julian though XP

My other red long eared sona who looks a bit like a cat was random inspiration. I wanted something kitten like but with long ears. I really like the long ears thing. Long ears are great.

I have other sonas like my demon fox sona who is pretty cool. And my snail dog sona. Plus soda the dog thingy.
I guess most my sonas are pretty androgynous or gender neutral or on those lines.

My fursonas are essentially characters I use to represent myself online. While I do love them and would never get rid of them I've yet to form the same bond with them a lot of people seem to have with their fursonas :c like I never really use them outside of the fandom and I don't really daydream about them or spend a lot of time on there stories either. So while they do have some back story that's only because I forced myself to sit down and create one for them

Mystic is essentially me. She has a lot of my personality and shares a lot of my likes and interests. She's not a perfect me though, she is idealized. She's more likeable than me, she's shy but not as shy or anti social as I am. She's thinner and better looking. Her hair is the hair I wish I had and her style is the kind of clothes I wish I could wear. She's a got a lot more cute aesthetic going on too. At the base though she's me

Amelia is more of a person I wish I could be I guess? She's confident and outgoing, doesn't care what others thinks and is in control. Her fashion and interests aren't anything like mine, it's just an aesthetic I've always loved and low key wish I could pull off

I feel pretty attached to my 'sona tbh. She's a lot more to me than just a mascot.

Dave is pretty much me. It's how I see myself at least.

Infact Dave is a shorter way of saying David. David is my middle name. Hence why my username is Adadave because it's a combination of Adam David. I made up the username a while before finding the fandom and as a result my nickname online has always been Dave because it's the most recognizable name in there. Most never see the Ada part as being Adam XD
