Mitchell Foster → 22 → Depersonalization
Depersonalization is an anomaly of self-awareness. It consists of a feeling of watching oneself act, while having no control over a situation. Subjects feel they have changed, and the world has become vague, dreamlike, less real, or lacking in significance. It can be a disturbing experience, since many feel that, indeed, they are living in a “dream”.
Some say Mitchell Foster was born with a curse, a curse of seeing the world in a different light; while on the other hand some say that he was born with a gift. Mitchell had never really taken anything serious in life, and it was obvious to his parents that something was wrong with the boy when he was enrolled in public school. He would claim that he saw different things that weren’t really there; things that made the world seem fantastical. Mitchell Foster’s brain had created a whole another world within reality, one where he could retreat to when things got hard or he didn’t want to deal with what was really happening. He watches the real world as if he’s watching it on a television, making things up in his head as the days go on. His parents thought that the only way he would be comfortable would be if he got some help, so they sent him to Blackthorn hoping that he would gain some realization.
Mitchell has always been one to try and make light of his illness. He isn’t usually frightened when he has episodes, more than intrigued. He pulls pranks on other patients, often including pretending to be seeing things trying to hurt them, or saying he is psychic and feels they are soon to face their impending doom, etc. He doesn’t realize the severity of his disorder, and often tries to skip out on his meetings with the doctors and nurses, until they track him down hiding somewhere in the asylum and force him to deal with his illness, against his will. Deep, deep down, Mitchell loathes his disorder because it makes everyone that knows treat him like he is a freak, or some kind of experiment.
