Welcome to the Madhouse

Post by Megantron on Mon Oct 12, 2015 5:01 pm


June 7th, 1952

Dear Diary,

The strangest thing has happened. John Dough has been murdered.

He had always been a bit annoying, what with all the running away and obsession with gingerbread (don’t even get me started on what Mercenary Day was like!) But not annoying enough to kill. Our once quaint little psychiatric ward has now been turned upside down—much like Alice’s imagination—with Nurse Heart brimming with anger. Her face has always had an unpleasant shade of pink to it, but now it was burning red. This one little murder was the first act in crumbling her kingdom of evenly placed dominos. I can only imagine what other misfortunes are sure to come.

It isn’t uncommon for a fellow patient to creatively end their internal suffering, but to end someone else’s? Well, surely someone has gone truly mad.

It would seem my pen time is over for now. Talk to you tomorrow.

Love,
Ruby Hoode

P.S. The yellow eyes still follow me to this day.


WELCOME TO THE MADHOUSE

Someone has started murdering at St. Fable's Asylum and it is up to you to figure out who.

ATTENTION: THE SPOT OF THE KILLER HAS ALREADY BEEN FILLED.

~ Application ~:

Notes:

  • Please no just guessing who the killer is right away because that doesn't make it fun.
  • Multiple characters are much welcomed and needed.
  • Characters can be based on any fictional character from classic fairy tales, fables, nursery rhymes, mythology, or anything with fairy-tale-esque quality to it.
  • We need doctors/nurses/security/police/janitors just as much as we need patients.
  • While some of these characters may originally possess magical skills in their original stories, this is supposed to be an asylum in our world where there is no magic.
  • You CAN, however, twist their magical power into a mental illness or real-world skill.

Setting:

St. Fable's Asylum is a fictional mental illness unit set in the U.S. 1950's. Procedures such a lobotomy, electro shock therapy, and other unethical practices were common in this time period. Please refer to media such as One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest for reference.

Example application:

Name: Ruby Hoode

Character based off of: Little Red Riding Hood

Appearance: click

Age: 23

Gender: Female

History: After a wolf attack during a summer camping trip, Ruby can’t stop picturing wolves all around her. Suffering from a severe case of PTSD, she finds it extremely difficult meeting new people, often proclaiming that they are a “big, bad wolf” and are going to eat her. In fear, she will scratch at stranger’s faces. It takes her approximately a month to get used to a stranger, so whenever a new patient is admitted, she is put in a strait jacket until she gets used to them.

Her passion currently is writing. Due to the ward’s strict rules on objects that can be used to injure, she is only allowed a pen for an hour a day under supervision in order to write in her diary,

Position: Patient

Name: Ari Zaman

Character Based Off Of: Aladdin

Appearance: CLICK HERE

Age: 25

Gender: Male

History: Born into a very impoverished family, Ari's father forced his 7-year-old son into a pick-pocketing scheme after the death of the boy's mother. Ari's thieving habits continued into his teen years as he and his father began burglarizing the houses of wealthy celebrities and politicians. Around this time, Ari began to grow concerned for his father as the man had become too reckless in his craft. In an unfortunate turn of events, Ari's father was shot dead by an art collector during what was to be their last job. Upon seeing his father killed, Ari scrambled out of the crime scene with a rusty lamp tucked away in his bag.

Ari didn't stop running until he fell into a deep hole miles away from the art collector's mansion. The impact of the landing on the rocky surface below both knocked the wind out of the boy as well as giving him a severe concussion. Ari spent hours simply trying to catch his breath. Unable to scream for help, Ari rolled around in mud and agonizing pain praying for forgiveness and salvation.

Two weeks went by as the boy remained trapped in the pit. The only thing he had to drink was rainwater from passing cloud bursts. Becoming extremely malnourished while still suffering from an major head injury, Ari began to experience clear signs of schizophrenia and psychosis causing him to visually hallucinate a ghostly apparition extending out of the lamp. After nearly three weeks stuck in the hole, Ari was finally rescued by a group a hikers who then turned him over to the nearest hospital, staying there until he was deemed physically healthy, before being shipped off to St. Fable's Asylum for mental help.

Now on his eighth year at the asylum, Ari still claims to see visions of the apparition going so far as to naming it "Jinn." When the lamp is taken away, Ari will become unreasonably violent against any members of the staff withholding the lamp from him, and he will even go so far as to commit self-harm until the object is returned to him. He is often viewed by the staff confiding his thoughts to "Jinn" and using the lamp as his only source of advice.

Position: Patient

Name: Aesop Caxton

Character Based Off Of: The Boy Who Cried Wolf

Appearance: Click Here for Iwan Rheon

Age: 28

Gender: Male

History: As a result of having two very neglectful parents, Aesop Caxton spent his childhood meticulously planning ways to prank his neighbors and classmates. His compulsive lying and mischief carried well over into his adulthood as he uses his unique charisma to pick up women, scam people out of money, and feign friendships with members of the staff and patients of St. Fable's Asylum.

He is a purely self-motivated human being only seeking to get his kicks at the misfortune of others. In the public eye he will maintain his duties as a security guard only to bolster his cover stories. In fact, he will in most cases pit two patients against each other without them realizing it just so he can break up the fight and receive bonus pay. Almost under no circumstance will he ever admit to lying.

As of late, Aesop has set his eyes on Ruby Hoode as his new victim ever since the unfortunate and unexpected death of John Dough.

Position: Security Guard

Re: Welcome to the Madhouse

Name: Gretta Hausmarch 

Character based off of: Gretel from the fable of Hansel and Gretel

Appearance: (Click here.)

Age: 19

Gender: Female

History: Gretta and Hans Hausmarch were twins born to a single mother. Their mother was a highly abusive woman who took the dissatisfaction she felt about herself and her life out on her children - often in episodes of extreme violence. Hans, in an effort to protect his sister, would often help Gretta hide around the house - a cabin that was too far in the forest for anyone to hear the children's beatings - so that he could take the full brunt of their mother's anger. 

One day, as their mother was coming home from work, Hans had Gretta hide in the home's old stove since he could tell that their mom was already very angry. She ended up beating Hans so badly on this day that the young boy actually suffered from internal hemorrhaging and died. Upon seeing her dead son, the mother searched the house for Gretta as well - she wanted to kill Gretta before she killed herself. Unable to find her, the mother broke down and cried loudly before hanging herself in the kitchen as Gretta watched through the brown and filthy window of the stove.

Gretta stayed hidden in the stove for a long time before finally one of her relatives showed up and discovered the grim scene. Obviously traumatized, Gretta was put in the care of the government and became a ward of the state. They tried to help her with therapy and counseling, but the damage was quite severe. She has only recently been transferred to St. Fable's Asylum and diagnosed with MPD (Multiple Personality Disorder). A meek and scared girl normally, she will often shift into a darker and serious 'protector' personality in times of stress that demands to be referred to as her brother Hans. 

Position: Patient

Name: Markus de Giles

   Character based off of: Gilgamesh, The Epic of Gilgamesh

   Appearance: Clicky Clicky

   Age: 34

   Gender: Male

   History: De Giles lived an ordinary life, growing up with long time friend Edward Nicholson. The two grew up together in the city, and were both employees of a company named Babylon Ltd., a big Pharma drug distributor. When Edward died of a critical lung condition, Markus found himself not so much hurt that his companion had died, but offended that someone who had served as his friend for so long would dare die on him.

This was the start of a massive superiority complex, where Markus would view everyone he met as beneath him. He quickly ascended to a middle management position through hostile means. He didn't last long, disregarding his superior's orders, and treating the company like it was his own.

It wasn't until he was terminated from his employment, that his God complex found him incarcerated in the Madhouse. De Giles has been diagnosed with a severe God Complex with Delusions of Grandeur. He believes everyone he sees is his subject, and everything around him belongs to him.

   Position: God King Patient
