Hopewick Asylum. Whether or not it shines as a beacon of hope for those who reside there is up for debate, but it is certainly one thing: an asylum, a place where those unfortunate souls who are mentally afflicted shall remain. You are a patient of this asylum. Whether you were brought here by relatives or came here of your own volition is uncertain. What is certain is that, for an unspecified length of time, this place is your home.

You no doubt wish you could return to your real home. But with a strange disease running rampant in the outside world, perhaps it is safer here in your little box. Here you are relatively safe from a world that has proven time and time again to be needlessly cruel. Yes, perhaps it is best this way. So you take your medications and you comply with the doctors' wishes - or not. To each their own. Either way, you are fed and warm, with a roof over your head and a place to sleep.

Perhaps days pass. Perhaps months or even years pass depending on how long you've been here. After a time, however, something very strange happens in your normally routine schedule. The lights go out, only to come back on, but in a red variation. Your door opens, and you are met with naught but empty air instead of one of the smiling doctors. You can see red lights flashing in the hallway and hear a low-pitched alarm. Something has happened, but what?

No more are your days of sitting idly in your little room. With a wall at your back and an open door in front of you, you have two options: to remain, or to venture out into the halls.

What will you find out there?

Name: Raegan Crawford

Age: 28

Gender: Female

Diagnosis: Voronin's Syndrome.
⦁ The disorder sort of locks the individual at the mental age they were when it developed. So people who develop it as children behave as children even after they physically mature.
⦁ One of the primary symptoms is having delusions, which varies from person to person.
⦁ Another one is "unreality in one's self", or detachment from one's surroundings. Essentially, reality doesn't feel real, like being in a movie or a video game.
⦁ There's also hallucinations, hearing and seeing things that aren't there, like a nightmare you can't wake up from, where your enemies follow you everywhere you go.
⦁ Another one is a lower level of fear, a decreased sense of danger.
⦁ There's displaying impulsive behavior, or partaking in dangerous activities (e.g., spending, sex, substance abuse, reckless driving, binge eating, etc.)
⦁ There's also a tendency to have intense or uncontrollable emotional reactions that often seem disproportionate to the event or situation, almost akin to a child throwing a temper tantrum.
⦁ Individuals may also go into a hypo-manic state, with a decreased need for sleep, an extremely gregarious and competitive nature, and a great deal of energy.
⦁ They may also display kleptomania, a compulsive need to steal things, even if the item isn't at all useful or valuable.

Personality: She is sort of child-like in nature. She seems innocent, perhaps even cute and sweet. However, she can throw tantrums and become aggressive if things don't go her way. She's either oblivious to any possible dangers around her or completely fearless. She often acts like there's nothing in the world to worry about. She's playful and mischievous, either not registering that her actions can hurt herself or others, or simply not caring.

Appearance: She is a dark-skinned African American with dark eyes. She has short, jet black hair in a pixie cut. She is about 5'6 in height with a toned, lightly muscular, athletic build. Her nails are clipped short, as she has tried scratching the doctors on more than one occasion. She wears a basic white t-shirt and pants. She doesn't wear shoes or socks, preferring to go barefoot. When given shoes, she will typically throw them at the doctors. Although, she will keep the socks and use them as puppets.

Primary Stats:
Health - 5
Sanity - 7

Other: She has one of those plush animal backpacks, with straps for wearing it, and a pocket for putting things in. Her's is a panda bear variant. The only things she currently has inside it are a pair of sock puppets, and a black sharpie.

Yeah, I've been living in the state of dreaming, living in a make-believe land.

Name: Warlock
Age: Unknown, possibly somewhere between 25 to 30
Gender: Male
Symptoms: Has a sickly want for destruction, mayhem and chaos. Antisocial personality disorder, Superiority complex, slight dissociative disorder but only at certain times, high self esteem, thinks he's the best and if ever doubted he will kill to be on top, has an unhealthy fascination with magic and illusions. Complete disregard for human life and suffering
Diagnosis: Unknown. No doctor has been able to place him into one specific category, or has the time to considering he makes most doctors who irk him disappear.
Personality: Charming, charismatic, chaotic. An ultimate portrayal of the evil lying dormant in all of us. Warlock is adept at breaking others, getting them on his side or killing them without remorse. There are very little things he shows care for. Little is known about his past but what is known is all speculation and rumors, basically a game of telephone. Warlock uses illusions and magic to woo, fight and distract. His only goal is to create chaos and prove that anyone can become just like him.
Appearance: Warlock stands at 6 feet tall, he wears a cape that wraps around him with buttons that button up at the front, warlocks hair in the back juts out in jagged spikes, it's disheveled and messy all over the place, jutting out randomly. His eyes are covered by what seems to be a white satin blindfold, how he sees is unknown but a magician never reveals his tricks. his teeth are jagged and sharp like fangs.

Accepted! :3

Name: Todd Crocker

Age: 35

Gender: Male

Diagnosis: Dependent Personality Disorder

Personality: Todd is perhaps the very definition of a gentle giant. There really isn't a mean bone in his body. Unless... well, it's complicated. To better understand, you'd have to understand the rest of his demeanor. He is extremely compliant and submissive with everyone, though especially towards people he's bonded with. He is rather meek and shy by nature, though he can be a bit more bold if he's desperate for someone's attention or affection. When it comes to winning others' approval, he'll become pretty much whatever someone else wants him to be. And that's where his normally kind demeanor can turn hostile. Loyal to the person or people he's bonded with to a fault, he will become whatever they want him to be in order to gain their favor. This includes the normally gentle giant turning into a savage monster, should someone else insist or demand it of him. Largely dependent on others, it is terribly easy to win Todd's trust and loyalty. Oftentimes he will put up with a person's abuse so long as he gets companionship in return.

Appearance: Todd is one of those individuals who many people would cross a street to avoid walking past on the sidewalk. Standing at an imposing 6'6 and with a build to rival a bull's, he certainly looks the part of a dangerous man. Should anyone take the time to notice, however, his eyes and facial features speak nothing of ruthlessness or aggression. His hazel eyes seem to possess an almost childlike innocence, his facial features normally soft and his mouth set into a concerned frown. His straight brown hair is long and often gets in his face, which he uses to hide behind when uncomfortable. He has a bit of stubble on his face, though it can be harder to see at times due to his lightly tanned skin tone. His hands and feet are very large.

Primary Stats:
Health - 7
Sanity - 5

Other: Todd has on his person a pen that he clicks repeatedly when anxious, which is usually any time he's not around people.

Name: Curtis Key
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Diagnosis: Dissociative amnesia; Derealization disorder
Personality: Calling Curtis strange goes beyond his debilitating memory loss and episodes of detachment. He's notably socially-awkward, having a tendency to say certain things at inappropriate times or preforming actions for the oddest of reasons. His eccentricities don't seem to bother him, however, and he's unafraid of socialization, even if he often ends up looking like a fool in front of people. There's a polarity in his behavior, swinging between wanting to make conversation and fool around with people, and wanting to avoid everyone and everything. He tells the other patients that his sudden need for privacy is due to another episode, but so far, this is the only mentions he's made of his diagnosis, apart from mocking himself for his inability to remember anything about his past life. Or so he claims.
Appearance: Curtis is very tall Caucasian man, standing at 6'4, and lanky, with little muscle tone or body fat. He is, however, quite sturdy, despite his appearance, and rarely seems to get sick or experience any physical aliments, save for the occasional light-headedness during episodes. He has olive eyes, pale green with a yellow tint, and light brown, wavy hair that falls to his ears and is typically slightly disheveled. He has a thin face, dark bags under his eyes, and crooked teeth. Despite his social awkwardness, and what some would consider a rough complexion, he walks with a certain grace and fluidity, always standing with good posture (when he's not crouched behind corners of corridors and hiding in boxes, that is) and moving with intent.
Primary Stats:
Health - 9
Sanity - 3

Another character in the works. Will add to Curtis's "Other" when I've decided on some belongings.
