Diagnosed with delusional schizophreniaAppearance:
--->How did you end up here?:
Cynthia grew up in happy suburbia, with a mom and dad that treated her very well, a little brother and a puppy named Silly that grew up into a loyal and loving dog. She always got good grades, she did her best to always be good, and she did her best to always make friends wherever she went. She wasn't sure what she wanted to be when she grew up, but she knew she wanted to help people somehow.
College made her innocence a little difficult for her. Everyone had to put their keys into a little box, and her friends had begged her to come even though she'd said sternly that she didn't want to go to any parties with drinking and smoking. She'd always had a bad feeling about drinking, even though she didn't know why. It had scared her a bit, and she stayed not more than twenty minutes before grabbing her little pink heart keychain out of the box and heading out.
They said that she'd stolen a car. How could she have stolen it if she had the right keys? She'd just gotten her own keys mixed up with someone else's somehow. It was even a similar make of car. So it was a different color, she accepted that, but when she'd beeped the unlock button, that was the car that flashed its lights. Why would she try to steal a car when she already had one?
She didn't really remember too much about driving home. She hadn't been so tired before drinking that Dr. Pepper that one of her friends had given her, but she'd pulled the tab off herself, so she knew it couldn't be spiked with anything. It didn't make any sense. Somehow she'd ended up being grabbed by a strange man that had pulled her out of the vehicle. Her head was throbbing, and she was so scared, not knowing this weirdo that was carrying her off. She managed to catch the element of surprise, clawing at him with her sharp nails and leaving four nasty gashes over his face. She hadn't known that she'd passed out at the wheel and that the medical technician had been only trying to help her. How could she have known that?
Her court-appointed lawyer Mr. Natchez had told her that everything would be alright, that if she just pled insanity like in all the movies, she'd have to spend a week in this place so they could check her over and she'd been home free. But she heard Mr. Natchez talking with some of the orderlies later. They kept saying things she couldn't fully make out but didn't like. They'd given him some money when the case was done.
It did all sound really stupid when she stopped to think about it later. Maybe she really was crazy. The whole story did sound so ridiculous when she thought back on it. She didn't want to hurt anyone or cause any problems.Personality:
Innocent, trusting, maybe a bit gullible. She tries so hard to be optimistic but that part of her is slowly dying with every day she spends in the hospital? Who knows how much longer that cheer can last out?Anything Else?:
Please don't permanently cripple her, whether through labotomization, amputation or similar. It's worth noting that she's not actually mentally ill at the start, but I expect her to eventually crack under the torture.
