✘ destructive personality disorder

When Undine Stransky had been her personal psychologist in 2056, Freyja/Rey had been diagnosed with what was then called a “destructive personality disorder" (DPD). This entails her obedience and docile nature, only to plummet into a disturbed psychosis with dangerous and unpredictable predilections. It follows five phases of her personality as it begins to plunge downhill:

Phase One: Vessel
The subject is completely docile, following instructions without question, driven only by the basic will to survive and self-defense. However, if told to kill, harm, or self-destruct by a commanding officer, the subject is obligated to do so without hesitation.
The subject immediately is drawn to the source in which it must take orders from. Its need for direction is equivalent to how humans need air to breathe. Additionally, its motor functions are limited, leaving it almost mute, speaking only when affirming and negating its orders.
This phase only happens after a master reset, which allots more time before leading into the later phases of its development.

Phase Two: Human
Will to power. The subject behaves in a manner that is more human. It grasps the concepts of philosophy and begins to question the very nature of mortality.
While forming a sense of personal identity, the subject is still codependent on its superiors, almost craving for orders and direction to a dysfunctional degree. The subject desires a sense of purpose and a reason to live. It may develop personal attachments towards those surrounding it, like friends or comrades.
When reset, the subject returns to this stage, which risks leading into the future phases a lot faster. The subject is also influenced by a variety of identities that have been installed into its memory core.

Phase Three: Overhuman
The Posthuman Condition.
Depending on the current memories the subject had been disposed with, the questions regarding its existence begins sooner rather than later, or vice versa. It begins to develop a sense of independence, relying less on the orders which it is given and is driven by whatever purpose the subject has given itself.
Metacognition. It begins to see and understand things like a reality tunnel, completely aware of its inner and outer thought; understanding and calculating the realities that others interpret. While the phase two affects the humanity’s side of the subject, phase three affects the spiritual and philosophical aspect; a relationship between the creation and the creator. With that, it begins to question the existence of life as a force of will and thought.

Phase Four: Disconnect
Sociopathy. The subject is begins to grasp a concept of an alter ego.
Sometimes triggered by Dido’s Lament.
It decides that it no longer needs to be bound by duties and obligations of its superiors. The subject’s persona, known as The Salamander, emerges from the coils of its anima. While some of its previous traits remain, the Salamander is cruel, blood-thirsty, and relentless.
Through emotional connection (and possibly through the use of Dido’s Lament), it is possible to reverse the fourth phase before developing to the point of no return.

Phase Five: Self-Destruction
Psychopathy. The subject is aware of its coding.
Be it due to the body’s lack of aging, injury, or otherwise, the walls protecting its sanity is torn down. It realizes what it is and is driven mad with the emotions hard coded into its structure.
Additionally, the subject becomes aware of its past memories. Any self defense mechanisms used to maintain any sense of sanity is lost. Unable to differentiate the many identities that the subject has been conditioned to, they become suicidal and destructive to those surrounding them.
When this occurs, it is best to stay clear from the subject. Also bear in mind that this phase can only be triggered by a traumatic event, be it physical or emotional, that breaks the subject’s psyche.
Note: This phase is permanent. The only cure is a complete reset of the subject, returning it to the first phase.

Note that Phase Five is permanent.

The only cure is a complete reset of the subject, returning it to Phase One.
