A random comic I did over at
Basically, there are so many stupid rumors out there. Okay, it's fun at first, but it gets repetitive!!! The fandom is fun, but to a certain extent.
Bakura is not abused by his other self every day, nor is it possible for him to take physical form. For what I know, Bakura doesn't even know he has a 'yami', he might have an idea, but he refers to it as "a voice" (Correct me if I'm mistaken).
As far as I know, he lives in an appartment, room 601, and it has not been said that his family is alive. We know what his father did at one point, but we don't know if he is still alive. We know he had a little sister that's dead, and he writes to her.
There are only two instances where Bakura was greatly "hurt". One in Monster World (once again, please correct me if I'm wrong), where yami no Bakura was trying to win a yami no game, he stabbed his left (or was it right?) hand on the castle tower, and second, in Battle City, when he made a deal with Mariku. Does that seem like constant abuse? I don't think so.
Bakura is pretty much clueless half the time. I did notice he seems to have a sixth sense to pick up trouble, especially noticeable in the chapter with Otogi. He wasn't afriad of the Phantomime either (he walked up and tried to scare it? I dunno).
Excuse the rant.
One more thing to mention though, he has no screen time in the anime.
Hmm... now to get back to my other work and I still have three chapters of TWINS to draw.
