In our last exciting series:
Known humanitarian and hospital administrator, Dr. Vito Blutziegal, holds an irregular investigation to find the culprits, relying on the inmates and staff.
Slowly but surely, the population of the small hospital was thinned out, as the fine doctor watched.
On the eighth day, the gang of walrus usurpers rose up and claimed the noble Blutziegal as their final victim before running off into the night.
At that same time, in the hills of rural Germany, a young girl vows to reunite with her absentee father and make him proud.
Pelly Putnam (NPC) Putnam is a mute suffering severe paranoia and displaced anger issues. Despite this, he is essentially harmless, and is given a certain amount of freedom in the hospital. Putnam checked himself in.
Bell Bastage (Badboytje) - An OCD case, always obsessed with perfecting her surroundings. She developed an obsession with right angles, and frequently refuses to communicate with anyone until all furniture and decorations in the surrounding area are straightened. As such, she abhors natural settings and is deeply agoraphobic.
Pandufus Randora (Pandora & Rufus) A split personality type, with both a male and female identities. Both consider themselves themselves the dominant personality, and "Pandoo" frequently argues with 'herself.'
"Tammo" (Captain Tamamono) While definitely of Pacific ancestry, it's not known if 'Tammo', as she refers to herself, is born in America or not. Though highly fluent in English, she lacks a grasp of social mores. When apprehended by police, she was surviving by bartering herself as a 'fun-time' girl in New England. There is debate among the staff of whether she is actually mentally ill or simply ill-informed about the nature of Western society.
Sassy Cooter (Scouts) A well-documented case, Cooter was the top solo female singer of 1983, until an obsessive fan doused her with acid. She has yet to acknowledge the degree of her scarring, and is a deeply vain person. Her parents have checked her in at our facility for the time being.
Ali "Periscope" Perry (Alopex) Perry was the sailor who famously hijacked a nuclear submarine in the summer of 1982. She has a deep obsession with Russia, and is suspicious of any person who doesn't consider the 'Russkies' the dominant focus of any American's life. Ironically, by commandeering the submarine, she was dishonorably discharged from the Navy and was charged with treason. Being a declared enemy of the country she loves was too much for Perry to handle.
Heng Lewley, "The Fantabulous Kresmo" (Hinckley) - A hypnotist of some renown, he left a trail of bodies across the eastern seaboard. Accompanied by his bullied partner, The Alluring Draxia, the two used the power of hypnosis to induce suicidal states in victims, in part to deceive the police into ruling the deaths as something other than murder.
Rolly "Cracker-man" Crackerman (Ricecracker) A sad man with a sad boring life. After waking up one day and realizing there was nothing about himself he liked, he donned his superhero costume and went to fight crime. On his first night out, he was brutally beaten, and after waking up in the hospital, he was more adamant than ever that he was the hero, Cracker-man.
Rick "The Salty R-Dog" Astley (Rick) A delusional young man from the Vermont suburbs, who has adopted a "street" identity in hopes of becoming famous. A short-tempered lout, with a tendency to bullying and an unfounded belief in his inherent superiority.
"Lumpy" Zed Furby (Zepher) An aggressive brute of a man. Formerly a regional leader of the Brick Angels biker gang, he was brutally beaten and left for dead as a rival member usurped his position. He is in a state of denial about his feebled position. He still imagines himself a leader.
Imes da Booey (imaded) A demolitions 'expert' who destroyed a city block during a routine building demolition. He claimed it was accidental, but psychological tests have shown he receives obscure pleasure from watching things implode. A compulsive masturbator.
Marcy Maeby (Bob) Young Maeby is a cutter as they say. She has repeatedly made slashes in her arms and legs. She is careful to not cause any serious injury, but must be put under strict supervision.
The Alluring Draxia (Dragonator) Kresmo's partner in crime. She suffers the delusion that Kresmo is a demigod, and is slavishly devoted to him. It has been suggested that the two should be kept separate, but the pair's lawyers have managed to guarantee they are housed in the same wing of the institute.
Shinobu Shiroba (Whitefang) A Japanese national staying in America at the time of hospitalization. Shinobu suffers a chemical imbalance causing deep dissociative tendencies, heightened by her lack of fluency, making her feel a heightened form of depression and loneliness.
Officer Sunny Day (Sandy) At one time, one of the most decorated police officers in Vermont. On the job, she was exposed by a crime syndicate to am obscure "panic" drug, which has altered her nervous system in such a way that she cannot relax. The condition is further aggravated by sleep deprivation as a result of her condition.
Boo Cameron (Big Cam) A true product of this go go decade. He made a quick rise on Wall Street to a position of great influence, before throwing it away on his cocaine addiction. A megalomaniac who will do anything for a fix. He was caught after stabbing two Colombian traffickers in a botched attempt to steal their wares.
Kelly "K-Girl" Mann (Kieldaman) A seemingly bright person, she is actually a sex addict, and has tried to use her sexuality to control most men and women in her life. A skilled emotional manipulator, without any conscience or remorse. She is pathological and requires constant surveillance.
Manuel Bukowski (Masked Builder) A particularly tragic case. A worker at the New Lower Brickton nuclear plant who miraculously prevented a meltdown by manually cooling overheated uranium rods. Though successful, that exposure has left him cancer-ridden, and quite mentally deranged.
Janie "Pun'kin" Beeswax (JimButcher) Nicknamed "pun'kin", not for her cuteness, but for her IQ. With the death of her parents, she went into the care of the state, which has placed her at our fine institution. Because of her difficulty at communicating with others, she has been given special permission to keep a dog, 'Charles' at the hospital.
Rickety Cannon (Roncanator) An emotional wreck. He dedicated virtually all his free time to the role-playing game, Beasts & Bricks. Two years ago, he lost his parents in a car accident, and subsequently flunked out of school. The resulting spiral of depression led him to fully adapt his character, and now lives in a fantasy world of monsters and magic, as the character Rascal Nate.
Shalonda Cunningham (Shadows) A crank that had been living on his own for years, as his paranoia grew unchecked. Convinced aliens are monitoring our mind's frequency, his gold brick apparently prevents broadcast wave interception. In other areas of life, he's competent enough, it's simply his belief that he's a target of alien interest that makes him a patient here.
Scally Wull (Sok117) The famous fish-boy of New England. His case needs little elaboration after the news uproar it had, but it's safe to say he had psychopathic tendencies before he was ever the alleged victim of bullying. Wull has a compulsive hatred of "yellow skins".
Stanley Spussemmin (Cornelius Murdock) The longest remaining patient of this hospital, he was a patient at the time of the scandal of 1961, when the Institute changed ownership and became the One Brick at a Time Institute. Though Spussemmen was a member of the party that finally murdered the staff and patients here, he was also heavily drugged at the time, and was left for dead shortly after in a gas station rest room. In the 25-year interval, he has been mostly docile.
Pearl Nuttin (Peanuts) A tragic figure. A hard worker who had intended to take over her family's farm, early into her 19th year, her face was caught in a wheat thresher. The intense scarring and prolonged surgery has seen her develop a whole new personality. The pleasant wholesome teen made a quick descent into drug abuse and criminal behavior, and is suffering a personality disorder wherein she is incapable of empathy.
Carl "Black Beast" Pie (CallMePie) At one time in the late 1970's, he was a leader in the New York punk scene, more famous for nailing his genitals to a board on stage than for musical talent. He adopted his 'beast' persona, having tattooed his entire body, and considers his birth name a lie.
Dr. Bethany Bovary (Brickdoctor) An A-type personality with narcissistic overtones. Bovaary lost her license after it was found that she frequently overmedicated patients, until a large number of them became comatose. Bovary showed pathological judgement in deciding that the people's lives were better off in comas than in living their daily lives.
Poby Flanagan (Professor Flitwick) Found wandering on the shoreline muttering a faux-Inuit language. The son of a prominent politician, his therapy at our institution is currently being kept a secret. Flanagan is of a positive disposition, but suffers irrational fixations, such as his current one, a love of dead fish.
