Christine Weston Chandler (born: February 24, 1982 (1982-02-24) [age 38]), also known as Chris Chan, is an American YouTuber, musician, and comic artist. She is an infamous trolling target, and is best known as the creator of the Sonichu comic series.

Background

Chris was born on February 24, 1982 as Christopher Weston Chandler. In 1993, her first name was legally changed to Christian.[1] In 2016, it was changed a second time to Christine after she came out as transgender. Her gender was also legally changed from male to female.[2]

On March 17, 2000, Chris created Sonichu in a graphic design class; she wanted to use Sonic the Hedgehog and Pikachu on a CD cover, which wasn't allowed for legal reasons, so she combined features from Sonic and Pikachu to create a brand new character.[3] The first Sonichu comic was released on March 24, 2005.[4]

She also created a virtual band called "Christian and the Hedgehog Boys" which featured characters from the Sonichu comic as band members. Two albums were released: Christian & the Hedgehog Boys (2003) and Christian & the Hedgehog Boys COMEBACK! (2009). The music was made by singing over pre-existing pop songs and changing some of the lyrics.[5]

Chris believes that she is a goddess, and her followers are known as the Devotees of Chris Chan Sonichu.[6] They believe that our reality and cartoon reality will soon collide in a "Dimensional Merge."[7]

History

Sonichu

Chris's original YouTube account was "Sonichu," created on May 8, 2007. The channel mainly consisted of fanart and her appearances on the news. She deleted the channel on September 11, 2007 after it was hacked by Encyclopedia Dramatica trolls.

CChan6789

After closing the Sonichu channel, she created a new channel called "CChan6789" on September 18, 2008. The channel was abandoned on March 30, 2009 in an attempt to stop trolls from mocking her. Surprisingly, this channel is still up on YouTube to this day.

CChanSonichu

Christ returned to YouTube on April 9, 2009 with a brand new channel, CChanSonichu. It was hacked on June 5 of the same year, but Chris eventually got the account back, and made three insulting videos that led to the channel's termination.

IBAChandler

Chris didn't bother trying to get her previous channel back and created a new channel, IBAChandler, on July 11, 2009. The name was meant to be a pun on "I be a Chandler." The channel's first video was "Rollin and Trollin," which was created in an attempt to trick the trolls by making them think that Chris was completely different than how she portrays herself online. This video inspired a troll who would soon be known as "Liquid Chris" to claim that he was the true Chris Chan.

ChristianWChandler

Chris created the ChristianWChandler channel on August 18, 2009 to stop Liquid Chris and make it clear that she is the true Chris Chan. Not many videos were uploaded to this channel, and most of them were callout videos directed at the trolls. The channel still exists today.

CwcvilleGuardian (2012)

Chris's current channel, CwcvilleGuardian, was created on February 27, 2012, but Chris didn't post any videos on it until November 5, 2013.[8] Originally, most of the videos on the channel were gameplay videos of Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros, but she later switched to making vlogs. In recent times, she mostly livestreams card games or preaches about the Dimensional Merge.

Other channels

ClydeGreggCashMays

ClydeGreggCashMays is another channel Chris created on October 26, 2009. Not much is known about this channel. Only four videos were uploaded; the first three videos were making fun of a troll named Clyde Cash, and the final video was an apology for joking about 9/11.

Christine Chandler

The Christine Chandler channel was created on October 28, 2013, and was only used in 2016. It was used to upload paid video requests while CwcvilleGuardian was restricted from uploading videos. The channel was abandoned two weeks later once the restriction ended.

CwcvilleGuardian (2013)

CwcvilleGuardian is a channel Chris created on September 14, 2013. This channel was only used to upload one video: "Male Idiot tries to put out fire, and Sits There Someone, please call 911 for Flintstone Drive! Y."
