I am so god damn sorry. @river-ride, you sent me that ask about Karl having health issues due to the cadou, like heart problems. The bad eye sight. Having infrared vision and being able to see metal particles. Him being unsure about the future and him having a panic attack due to the loud music in a mall. His s/o got him noise canceling headphones. I accidentally deleted the ask when I meant to press answer (I hit the wrong button, I’m so sorry 🥺). So I will just answer it like this and do let me know if I missed anything from your original ask.
-Karl’s health problems would start as soon as he gets infected by Miranda. He grew up to be a relatively healthy child, but then everything changed once Miranda started her experiments. I feel like he will have a hard time adjusting at first, since he will be unable to do the things he used to. At least, until he gets used to his new form and condition.
-as times goes on, I feel like he will isolate himself, hating himself and Miranda for what she’s done to him. Whenever he gets really angry at a meeting, he comes home to a terrible chest pain. His heart would ache so bad he debates whether or not he should just cut it out. With time he learned to keep his cool, but there are times when Alcina annoys him so bad, he can’t stop himself.
-he doesn’t see particularly well in sunlight, so that’s why he keeps his glasses on most of the times. Before he started wearing them, I feel like there were times he almost went blind. His eyes hurt in the light so bad, he might just grab his head and scream. And ever since then, he keeps his glasses on at all times.
-it’s no secret Karl probably overthinks a lot. He is always worried about not being able to kill Miranda and forever remaining her puppet. Once his s/o appeared in his life, that fear would double because now they’re worried for them too. What is Miranda finds them? What if they die? What if they stop loving him? He worries a lot and usually he doesn’t let his s/o know. But they do. They always know. Karl still has to accept that to them, he’s an open book.
-Karl isn’t someone particularly bothered by loud noises. I mean, he works in a factory and the place is always loud. But he never really listened to music, nor did he ever have to be in a place full of people. I feel like Karl would be more bothered by the mass of people around him.
-if he happens to have a panic attack in a public place, he will ask his s/o to leave with him. If he can talk. If he can’t, then his s/o should be able to tell at this point. And they will know what to do and get him out of there as soon as possible. His s/o would make sure he is comfortable before asking him if he’d like to go home. I feel like he would feel bad for having a panic attack and would think he ruined their day. So his s/o would need to reassure him a lot and remind him how loved he is.
-he is very thankful for his s/o and everything they do for him. He knows he’s not exactly a gentleman and he’s hard to be with at times. But the fact that they’re with him means so much to him. He really loves them. So much.
