Hi all, if you don't remember my last thread. It was the discussion of how many zombie-like classes that came with interesting information, I'm doing the novel now but I need help. I need help on a specific character I'm up to now, he basically have a steady-class of education and doesn't form vocal sentences properly so... for example just where I'm up to at this present moment: "That you Addy?" MC answers and he let him in. "Adam, Adam... Adam" Enters a horribly dark-house (Boarded, no power to light) Flashing light into Adam's eyes whereas Adam blocks his face to not strain his eyes. Adam instructs him to put it away, but ultimately snatched it off him. "How? How I see?". (May be say that the lack of dialogue from MC is cos he's escaped from those... well, lets call them zombies and he'd lost a traumatic loss which makes him... not directive) It's not much considering I just introduced him, but I need a specific illness to his mental state as I will later on need to make Adam briefly explain why he's... odd to someone to add conversations as matter of character progression. There's too many illnesses out there and I need one specifically tied to this, so I'm counting on any medical knowledge you guys got or find in that case. If there's none, that's fine. Guess I either research harder, maybe just put another traits to match another mental illness or just leave the illness unmentioned further on in the novel. To help, he's 'similar' to Eddie in the Mice and men title. (Except he's not dumb, strong and he have righteous opinions). Thanks for any support.
