Staff Motivations

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Rulke on Thu Jul 13, 2017 4:32 am

This is a thread to discuss the motivations of the staff members whether malevolent or actual motivated to do good.

Alice's motivation is rather in conflict she is broken although classified sane the actions of Cheshire did to her when she was a child left scars that can be easily opened. Further because of this she is far more sadistic and cruel to inmates and has less patience with them. Of course, she is trying to help people but her methods are rather harsh to say it lightly. Though she wishes to help the world and provide somewhere these dangerous or insane people can go. She is not entirely opposed that they can be saved. Hyde was a case she never imagined was possible. Yet she succeeded.

As for what drew her to the location, in short, it was residual effects of Wonderland, which itself was magical and twisted, thus it warped her mind. Though her motivations were noble, she is truly doing all she can to help the patients who can be helped. Yet her and their conditions are made much worse due to effects of the locations.
We help the multi-nationals
when they cry out protect us.
The locals scream and shout a bit,
but we don’t let that affect us.
We’re here to lend a helping hand
in case they don’t elect us.
How dare they buy our products
yet still they don’t respect us.

Jekyll holds the desires of any typical psychiatrist. He wants to help his patients come to terms with their illnesses and find ways for them to fight it with the ultimate goal of rehabilitation

Hyde doesn't really care about the facility (technically isn't even staff). He doesn't want to be contained in it.

Hook's desire is to bring the patients to terms with reality and move them forward. He believes there are no monsters, only fevered minds that need treatment, with his vice being the desire to win, a double-edged sword there. He is moderated by adherence to ethics, but perhaps not entirely to standard procedure, as such he tends to be against torture and whatnot, but is in favor of other nonviolent methods, such as suggestion (if it helps).
Honor and arrogance are two sides of the same coin. We don't need standards like "honor," we just need mutual respect, and to do right by ourselves, as well as others.

Vitas motovation is, the Asylum is a place ot test her skills and in the proccess weed out the truly insane. With her magic, and the fact that growing up past age 14 she was one really evil bitch that ruled Sacremento with an ironfist before the death of Spike but after taking it from her parents.

As of right now her motive is simply to see how evil while being nice she can be. This includes torturing patients on a ad hoc basis.... ad hoc is apparently latin for under water... Npo seriously, with her magic and abilites, well, this'll be fun Her true motovation is to experiment so she can truly destroy the man who broke her heart so long ago

Theodora's motivation is a mixture of things. Her primary motivation is jealousy and envy. All her life her sister was the one getting all the attention; her sister was more talented with her magic use, got better grades in school, got all the boys, and even stole her last boyfriend. Everything she has done in her life as been to get out of her sister's shadow, even now that her sister is dead she still compares herself to her.

Her secondary motivation is a little is to actually help the children in the asylum, however, her idea of help is to try and force the children to act like adults and stop believing in fairy tale stuff, even though she knows that it's real.
I'm not saying the voices are real, I'm saying they have some good ideas.
