I like and read a lot about psychology, and two of my boys are supposed to be mental ill, one of them seems to be narcissistic according to what i read about narcissism. but the other boy Luke he's a bit confusing and unstable, he seems to have depression, other times he seems a bit attention seekers/challenging, other times he seems a lot more like a psychopath. his childhood: he has a crazy, violent father who's busy with his work and act before thinking(he also has mental illness running in family genes), he killed his wife when that boy Luke was 2 (his father didn't get arrested though since he works for the corrupted government militarily and they need him so they do what he wish for as long as he do what they demand), so Luke was raised alone, ignored, getting hit or yelled at or challenged, he was also getting bullied at school since childhood. they tried to take him to asylum and speak with him but his father didn't allow them and Luke himself didnt want any help. so i will write his actions/what he does and see what do you think of him or if there's something is much in his character but i had meant to make him very dark since my series will be about dark love more like devil and angel love. all of this prove's he's more a psychopath -Very dark, humorless, expressionless, low empathy, smart, he plans his actions as he can, he likes taking what he want in whatever way. he doesn't love anyone but willing to be loyal to certain people and reward in his own way as long as he's in control and that person obeying. a bit attention seekers/challenging - He self-harm, more as habit and challenge he used to say "I like burying deep down to find the buried bones", and tried to suicide several times at some times it was for a reason not really because he's tired of life as depressed person. so i think when he has depression it would be because things not going as he want or because he lost someone from his close circle. -he used to be addicted because it was fun and challenging to go as high as possible -and there's tiny things he hated as kid and doesnt like coming near them. as for his narcissistic friends they are only together because they have plans together not because they want to be friends and they fight a lot. but usually psychopaths don't like challenging people nor being friend with narcissistic person? So does he has medium psychopathy level or something else? the reason i ask to focus on what mental illness he has exactly to read a lot more about and if you think something is much i can try to work on, i am trying as possible to keep their character as real as possible. i havent focused on doctors diagnosing him as i mentioned before because neither he nor his dad allow them, and so readers don't think i put false information, but it would be better to know.
