Hi Everyone, I need some advice for a character in a story I've been working on. The one primary trait for said character is the fact that he's insane. I know there are different types of mental symptoms and what not, but what I have in mind is just true madness. How to convey that madness seems to be my only problem. I have him utter nonsense phrases and what not, but to me, that doesn't seem to be enough. I need something to show that this character has truly lost his mind and odds of him gaining his sanity back seem rather slim. Another question I have on the issue is if the madness I have in mind would be enough to warrant violent behavior? In video games and films and such that do portray madness, violent behavior is often a common trait. Does madness always have to equal violent behavior or can it be done with it?
