I figure now that we're back to the Blackbird, it's a good time to post my sheet, so here we go.
Name: Ani Warren
Appearance: Ani is approximately 5’ 3”, and obviously malnourished. Because of this, her growth has been slightly stunted and she looks younger than she is. Her appearance is unkempt; her unruly, dark red hair has been shorn to keep it manageable. It’s only a few inches long. Her eyes (light blue) are often glazed with medication, or unusually bright and feverish during her episodes. When she is lucid, they are observant and calculative, measuring her surroundings carefully. Ani, if left to her own devices, will stay quite clean on her own, though she tends to ignore grooming such as combing her hair or picking out matching clothes. She keeps a measurable distance between herself and others, and refuses to look people in the eye, unless confronted with something extremely significant.
Pictures: first one,

I may get better ones later, but for now, those are it.
Personality: Ani has compounded psychological problems. She often has inappropriate emotional reactions to a given situation, if she exhibits any reaction at all. Usually, her face maintains a flat affect; she seems incapable of feeling most emotions. She actually does have emotions, but she's detached from them, and they often don't register externally. Ani also has an almost obsessive-compulsive aversion to touch, loud or sudden noises, and overly chaotic situations. She has the occasional, seemingly unprovoked psychotic fit, and usually requires restraint and isolation to return to ‘normal.’ She has occasional seizures. Ani can often walk around safely; and to-date hasn’t been known to become violent toward anyone. On good days, she can carry a short conversation and seems fairly lucid, if not extremely distant. On her best days, she may seem almost normal, and remembers people who have been exceptionally kind to her. She doesn’t like people in her room, and walking in unannounced is a surefire way to cause a ruckus.
Disorders: Compounded. Ani is co-morbid, which means she has several disorders at once. Notably PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), and schizotypal personality disorder (emotional detachment, among other things. Wiki it if you're interested). She also has dissociative bouts, though these have been attributed to the PTSD (in other words, she doesn't have multiple personalities or fugues or anything that complex. She just trances out every once in a while). Her psychotic fits are usually in conjunction with strong flashbacks, and though she has not been diagnosed with schizophrenia, she has little control over her own thoughts and may perceive things to be different than they actually are.
