Most of the characters in my story are in some way mentally ill. This ranges from irrational phobias, depression, drug addiction, and even full-blown schizophrenia. Problem is with my (paranoid) schizophrenic character, I don't know what to make him do or say to show the audience that he is deeply disturbed. 1. I can't have him claim the government is watching him because technically, he IS the government. He's the king of the realm and he has total control over every political action in the land. 2. He is obsessed with cleanliness and the color white. He believes that anything pure white in color is automatically in it's purest form. He doesn't seem to have much of an eye for telling the shades of white apart though. How do I work in more OCD-cleaning behavior?
