My proposed character!
Dr. Gunther Trismagustus
Height: 6' 1''
Weight: 145 lbs.
"Doctor" Trismagustus was a fairly normal entertainer with a fake PhD for a while. He worked as a stage hypnotist, running around the country playing con games for entertainment purposes only. One night during a performance, however, he began to see visions of auras bleeding off of people's bodies, and began to perceive monsters just outside his range of vision. Over the next few days, his hallucinations only got worse, until finally he began to believe that the monsters in his hallucinations were demons who preyed on the minds of the weak and vulnerable. He began to "treat" the afflicted, and nearly killed several people with drug overdoses and shock therapy before becoming a ward of the state.
After coming to Lake Heart, Gunther's delusions became worse, and he became more and more successful in convincing the nursing staff that he was in fact a doctor at the asylum. He has hoarded truly frightening amounts of supplies from the doctors, and has more or less turned the east wing of the asylum into his own personal domain. The staff would stop him, but sometimes he really does seem to bring improvement in his victims, and his playing doctor actually seems to reduce the complaints of hauntings and supernatural phenomena. A few cuts and bruises here and there is perfectly normal for a doctor in his line of work, isn't it?
