Height: 5'6"
Weight: 150

Biography: Raised as a Big Cat tamer for a traveling circus due to his close relationship with the large cats he was forced to live in the cage with a white tiger. He tended to only associate with the cats he lived with and 'tamed'. When no one was around some of the other circus hands thought it funny to talk to him and make him believe they weren't real people. He couldn't tell the difference when he couldn't see them. Even being led to believe that the cats he lived with and loved spoke to him sometimes to. This belief was strongly implanted in his head the night the ring master got drunk and shut the White Tiger he was caged with. When some of the voices stopped he believed the cats he has spoken to were the ones killed. Due to the ring masters night of killing animals the authorities found him in the cage with the dead big cat and took him away from the life of animal taming and circus acts. The Hospital that took him in for a while realized his mental state and decided to transfer him to a Mental Hospital for better help.

Dr. Stefan Caprioli's report:

Patient claims to 'hear voices', though based on the context it was brought up in it seems that he believes the voices of people around him are figments of his own imagination. Whether he hears other voices as well is unclear and needs to be looked into in future sessions. To define someone as 'real' he seems to have to touch and make sure they're physically there as well as test reactions of the person (tugging hair to see if they react to pain, pull away from a hand being held and feeling resistance, etc). He mentioned a 'friend' multiple times but did not elaborate and it is unclear currently whether this is an actual person or a construct of his mind.

He seems to dislike being out in the open as he would always gravitate towards some sort of wall or object to touch and sometimes lean on to. This may just have to do with his blindness however.

I request that an orderly be assigned to him to help him around his room if necessary, and more importantly to help him around the hospital until he can be taught to manage his blindness. I am considering ordering a cane so he can function more independently, as well as getting him some instruction on how to properly use it.

Dr. Allen Carter's report:

Patient was brought in from the cafeteria experiencing symptoms in line with some sort of food allergy. The patient was stabilized and tests were run to determine what allergy it could possibly be (as well as speaking with kitchen staff to determine what all he'd been fed). The allergy has been determined to be caused by bananas; do not give the patient any food with bananas in them under any circumstances.

Dr. Allen Carter's report:

Patient was brought in by fellow patient Coheed Deftinwolf from the garden with lacerations to both his arm and face. These were apparently caused by the patient tripping and falling in the garden. I noticed a distinct lack of blood which one would normally see with wounds such as these so I questioned the two further. It seems that patient Deftinwolf licked the wounds clean (more information in his patient record). The wounds were bandaged and stitched as needed.

Dr. Stefan Caprioli's report:

I asked the patient to come in to discuss how he was settling in as well as some of the recent events reported upon in his record. The session ended up focusing mostly on his recent trip to the garden where he was injured and aided by patient Coheed Deftinwolf. During the session it became apparent that the patient has some sort of aversion to, if not an outright fear of, blood. When he discussed how he was bleeding in the garden he compulsively wiped his hands on his clothes as if trying to wipe them off and eventually asked to leave the session to take a shower. It is not completely apparent where this comes from but based on what the patient said it seems to have come from some traumatic event at the circus he lived at; possibly when the big cats he was living with were killed.

Dr. Stefan Caprioli's report:

Patient was brought in for a group discussion with fellow patient Coheed Deftinwolf to ascertain the nature of their seemingly intimate relationship. He was informed of a few rules and seemed willing to comply. See patient Deftinwolf's record for more information on the session.

Dr. Stefan Caprioli's report:

Patient came into with patient Coheed Deftinwolf requesting that the latter have permission to stay in his room overnight with him. I determined that this would be unsafe, so the request was denied. When the reasoning was explained the patient was resistant and fairly vocal. The patient left to help patient Deftinwolf who had become very upset during the course of the discussion.

Dr. Allen Carter's report:

Patient was brought into the infirmary after an altercation with patient Coheed Deftinwolf in his room. Reports from the guards and orderlies on the scene state that patient Deftinwolf seemed to be in a different alter from his usual one at the time of the incident. It seems that Anderson was panicking and Deftinwolf forcibly pulled him out from hiding and made threats. Patient Anderson lashed out in self defense. Reports from the orderlies and guards on the scene state that the patient appeared to be panicked and delirious. He was brought into the infirmary to be checked for injuries but nothing was found aside from some slight bruises on his knuckles.

I request that the patients remain separated until they have spoken with their therapists regarding the issue.

Dr. Stefan Caprioli's report:

Patient was brought in to discuss the incident with patient Deftinwolf in his cell the previous day. Patient claimed to have 'voices harassing him' which led to his panicked state. He believed that patient Deftinwolf was one of the figures from his past come back to threaten him and attacked him accordingly. I recommend that the patient be put on anti hallucinogenic medications to aid with this problem.

Aside from this I discussed with the patient his permissions regarding patient Deftinwolf and informed him that they will not be allowed in each other's rooms until further progress is made in both of their treatments. Patient did not take well to this idea at all and was resistant all the way through the session. I request that the orderlies assigned to him keep special watch on him while in the cell hall to make sure he complies with this.

On a side note to the orderlies: Patient has said he does not like being led around by the shoulder, ask before leading him anywhere his preferred method of transport.

Guard's report:

Patient attacked patient Coheed Deftinwolf in the garden. He bit his shoulder, (stitches were required) and the patient was subdued and returned to his room afterwards.

Guard's report:

Patient went into a fit while in the dayroom with patient Coheed Deftinwolf. This seemed to have something to do with voices he was hearing (at least what could be gleaned from what he was saying). Patient was somewhat violent but was easy enough to sedate and take to the infirmary to check for injuries.

Dr. Stefan Caprioli's report:

After speaking with patient Coheed Deftinwolf's doctor, Dr. Saito, regarding the recent events between these two patients we decided it best to keep Deftinwolf and patient Leo Anderson separated except for certain supervised meetings. These meetings will take place during the evening and day for an hour or so. Physical contact will be kept to a minimum to avoid any injuries or violence.

Once both patients have progressed far enough along in their treatment to be deemed 'safe' then the situation will be reevaluated.

Dr. Stefan Caprioli's report:

I was called to patient Leo Anderson's room by his orderly when the patient refused to take his medicine. He was unresponsive at first, likely ignoring me out of spite due to my part in the decision to have him and Coheed Deftinwolf separated temporarily. We had a back and forth for a few minutes as I tried to make clear to him why I made the decision I did and how resisting his treatment would do nothing to help the situation. I'm not sure I was able to completely convince him but he did seem more willing toward the end of our conversation.

He mentioned his anxiety at feeling alone, not hearing anyone and not feeling anyone when he was by himself in his room. I suggested giving him and patient Deftinwolf hand radios so they could speak to each other while they were in their own rooms. He seemed fond of the idea but still mentioned a need for physical contact. So I will look into ordering a large stuffed animal to see if something like that might help.

Dr. Stefan Caprioli's report:

Patient was sent to me by his orderly who reported that the patient had not eaten in the past two days. After discussing the particulars with the patient I ascertained that it was not medical as much as psychological; he stopped going out of his room when his time with patient Coheed Deftinwolf was limited and stopped eating as much. I request that the orderlies ween him back onto his regular diet. After discussing this with the patient I also request that one of his daily sessions with patient Deftinwolf be over a meal (if the latter complies).

Dr. Stefan Caprioli's report:

Patient requested a session with me so he could further his treatment and have private time again with patient Coheed Deftinwolf. The session focused on the nightmares the patient has. He described to me what they were about; the night at the circus when the tiger he was in the cage with was killed. He seemed to blame himself for the death and focused mostly on the blood that was on his hands after the tiger's death. I talked him through his grief and tried to make it clear that he was in no way responsible for the death. Further sessions regarding the blood part may be necessary later.

Dr. Stefan Caprioli's report:

I requested a session with the patient to check up with him regarding our last session; his nightmares and such. He reported that the nightmares have become much less severe over the past few weeks and that they are becoming further and further apart. I will address this again in a later session just to make sure this trend continues.

I also spoke with the patient more in depth about the voices he used to hear before taking anti-hallucinogenics. It seems that some of the voices he heard were actual people (he just wasn't able to label them as such due to his being blind and locked in a cage) while others were fabricated in his head. This too will be touched on more in a later session.

The patient wished to know if he could be allowed with patient Coheed Deftinwolf now due to his improvement. It would seem that his violent tendencies, or rather what was the cause of them, are diminishing. I have requested that he be observed closely for the next few days and in the case that he is allowed back with Deftinwolf. But I have to discuss further with Dr. Saito in regards to Deftinwolf's mental state.
