Skylar Mace | 18 | Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder | Leighton Meester |Taken
Skylar Mace Has always been the type of girl you wanted to be friends with, but she never wanted to be friends with you. She has always only had a couple of close friends and you would never see them hanging out with anybody else.
Growing up Skylar spent most time with her friends or alone. She never made any new friends—not because she couldn’t but because she didn’t want to. She only put her faith and trust into certain people and if they didn’t listen to what she had to say then she would make their lives a living hell.
The last girl that thought Skylar was always controlling her made sure she let her know. You might assume Skylar would freak out but she didn’t. She walked away. The rest of the week at school Skylar and the rest of her friends shunned the girl, and they didn’t talk to her, or let her sit with them, succeeding in ostracizing the girl from any friends she had. It just went to show how truly vicious Skylar could be.
Her Obsessive Compulsive behavior was always pretty extreme, and she was highly picky about anything and everything; This was sometimes expressed through a killer sense of fashion, but also through an almost inability to do anything without all the details being perfect.
A couple weeks before being admitted into the St. Dymphna’s rehabilitation center, Skylar had a psychotic break down she broke everything in sight and threatened to kill one of her best friends for reasons Skylar refused to explain. Her parents just want her to get better.
Christina Rasor | 17 | Anorexia Nervosa | Jenna Mcdougal
Reese Shears | 21 | Nurse | Olivia Wilde
Jamie Keller| 28| Nurse/Pedophile| Jensen Ackles| Taken
While he’s got a charming face, most patients should be warned about Jamie. He’s a sadomasochist and he’s abusive to patients—twisting their arms, giving them bruises, half-choking them, and sometimes breaking bones. He likes to aggravate the boys into fighting him, just so he can beat the shit out of them. Girls who are unfortunate enough to be caught alone with him will find themselves beaten and sexually abused, but only if they’re unwilling, because he takes more joy out of nonconsenting victims.
He gets away with quite anything he wants, and is the physical force behind Head Nurse Melrose. His strength is nearly supernatural and his demeanor is downright terrifying to the patients.

Melrose Lex| age unknown | Head Nurse| Helena Boham Carter| Open
Head Nurse Melrose runs the horror house that is St. Dymphna’s, and is responsible for most of the horror. She uses the nurses, who she controls, in order to ensure that her patients seem crazier than they are, and to keep them there forever.
She runs “experiments” with her patients on the side, which sometimes involve medication switch-up, solitary confinement, starvation tactics, makeshift surgery, and sometimes rumored satanic sacrifices.
Sometimes she’ll find one patient she likes, forming a relationship with them as though they were her pet, and manipulating them to do her will as well. Her eerie beauty seems to have an effect on the patients, both stirring fear and love in their hearts for unknown reasons.
Head Nurse will once a year accompany a patient to the discharge room, from which, seemingly normal to other patients, no one will return. Nobody wants to get on her bad side because of whispers around the ward of her methods of punishment.
Valkyrie DeLuca| 18| Alcoholic| Hayley Williams| Open
Valkyrie was the constant victim of heartbreak. She deeply invested herself in relationships that always ended like train wrecks, and her emotions became more and more frayed as she looked for someone that wouldn’t eventually just leave her.
Instead, she found the bottle at parties her friends invited her to in the hopes of scoring a rebound. While her friends were taking “neww drunkkk picsss YOLO”, Valkyrie was drowning herself in a sea of liquor, wishing it would devour her and numb her feelings forever. She would drink until she could taste the inside of her stomach, whether it was Friday night or Sunday morning. Valkyrie lived a life intoxicated, with brief periods of sobriety in between, which were always torturous.
Valkyrie suffered alcohol poisoning twice before her junior year, much to the dismay of her parents, who gave fumbling attempts to help Valkyrie cope in a healthy way. Showing up to school intoxicated, Valkyrie was suspended from school and sent to rehab when her parent talked about her troubles with alcohol to the principal.
Unable to function long periods of time without alcohol, Valkyrie finds herself cut off from her only lover—liquor—and clueless as to how to act when not intoxicated. Her clumsiness and cute personality endears her to people, but estranged from all her old friends, she’s unsure how to make new ones.
At St. Dymphna’s, Valkyrie’s stuck between the decision to truly become clean, or just fake it until she can get out.
Evie Champion| 19| Schizophrenia, Substance Abuse, depression| Taylor Momsen| Taken
Evie is the prodigal daughter of her rockstar mother, Champion. Growing up with an abusive coke junkie father and a pudgier figure, the scar tissue of her psyche is deep.
As she grew older she became revered as one of the sexiest figures of punk rock and is outrageously famous because of her role as talented lead singer in the screamo-punk band The Devil’s Lullabye. Evie, because of her rockstar lifestyle, has what people would call troubles with substance abuse and excessive alcohol consumption.
However, the pressure of always being perfect and being on her A-game slowly destroyed her on tour and she deteriorated under paranoia stemming from mysterious death threats. With the sudden death-by-overdose of her mother, the former rockstar “Champion”, Evie attempted suicide for not the first time in her life, but was rescued by her sister, Poppy. This is when her fans discovered that she has had major depressive disorder since she was 10 and she disclosed in an interview shortly after that she cuts herself.
She is head over heels for her bass player and part time vocalist, the dark and brooding Ben Sheffield, America’s sex idol of punk rock, but she’s severely frightened of loving someone because she’s had her heart broken multiple times. Despite this, Evie loves sex as a favorite pastime.
The family psychologist diagnosed her with paranoid schizophrenia and above brilliant IQ and keeps pumping her pills as she sends the unwilling Evie and her sister to St. Dymphana.

Tucker Barsketis | 21 | Psychopath | Francisco Lackowski | Open
Quite a scary case, Tucker grew up in an outrageously normal suburbia with loving parents. Early on, his parents noticed that as they tried to teach a toddling Tucker the rules of their household, he had no sense of right and wrong, and had an overly morbid fascination with fire.
His parents often found dead birds strewn on the lawn with their small necks broken, and his mother flat out fainted when she entered Tucker’s room to find their cat, whose body had been sliced open, pinned to the wall. Numerous psychologists evaluated him and determined with great difficulty the psychopathy hiding behind his charming face; In truth it was hard to believe how quickly Tucker could go from smiling sweetly to jumping at his older brother’s throat with his safety scissors. Tucker admitted to his psychologist that he wanted to kill his family, and his therapists made precious little progress.
Afraid of an 8 year old Tucker, his parents had to lock him in his room at night and homeschool him. Despite his sparse interaction with other kids his age, Tucker was brilliant and blindingly self-confident, his charm uncanny.
He passed the years with little trouble other than occasionally dead neighborhood animals, but everything changed when Tucker turned 18. Against his parents’ will to keep him in their home, Tucker ran away, and in celebration of his freedom burned down a large apartment complex with many people in it.
He was quickly caught and charged with arson, but his volumes of psychological evaluation was more than enough for him to please mentally unstable, and was sentenced to the psychiatric ward at St. Dymphna’s
