He has co-consiousness right from the start, which allows him to be somewhat aware of what's going on when his alters are out, whereas many individuals with DID have no such memory at all, and thus have an even harder time coming to terms with the very existance of their condition.

 Untitled Document
The origins of the first person novel, in English, have its roots in personal writing.
Among the most famous of these novels are Samuel Richardson's Pamela (1740), which structures itself as a collection of letters, Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe (1719), which structures itself in the form of memoir and diary, and finally to a lesser extent Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights (1848), which incorporates letters into its narrative.
Because these early first person novels, for the most part, took the form of personal writing, their subjects and theme, either consciously or accidentally, usually focused themselves on the intimacies of personal life.
