She is usually tense and ready to argue about harmless comments made by family members.

She is extremely concerned with pollution, fearing that harmful chemicals are in the air and water around her. She has developed her own water purification system and makes her own clothes. If it is necessary for her to go outside, she covers her body with excessive clothing and wears a face mask to avoid the contaminated air.

He has never had a girlfriend, and expresses no desire to have sex. He is meeting with a therapist only because his family tricked him into going.
Elaine has low self-esteem and usually feels empty unless she does dangerous and exciting things. She is involved in drugs and has casual sexual encounters, even with strangers.
