Name: Daniel Masters, but he goes by Danny

Age: 20

Roommate:
Up for grabs?

Disorder(s): Bipolar II

Medication(s): Zyprexa, Zoloft

Outstanding Incidents in Past: One suicide attempt; after tonguing his pills for several weeks, Danny attempted to overdose on them. Fortunately, the orderlies arrived in time. Patients are free to have overheard rumours of the incident, though it was done privately.

There was one public escape attempt during a manic episode, when Danny ran as fast as he could for the door during lunch one day. He was tackled before he made it too far, and there was scattered applause. This one most patients probably know about, since it happened in the middle of the cafeteria. Since then, he's pretended to repeat the attempts, running for the door before skidding to a stop, to tease the orderlies.

Favorite color:
Turquoise.

Quote:
Because both his medications start with a Z, there are is usually some sort of "catching some Z's" pun around med-time.

Other: When he's manic, he gets paranoid and jittery. He flinches when people touch him, and sometimes he starts arguments. Sometimes they're bad arguments, with some punches thrown. If he's been tonguing his meds, he'll experience hallucinations during a manic episode. Sometimes mild (hearing faint whispers), sometimes more severe (distinct voices, often accusing him of things, sometimes with accompanying visual hallucinations). While it's usually nothing drastic -- nothing out of the ordinary for the asylum, really -- it's enough for the orderlies to keep a careful eye on him.
