A little dual portrait of Mouse and Cyrus. Though I couldn't decide which of the color variations I liked best, so I just put all three up. :3 Well, the one on the right is my favorite, but I liked the other two too.
But yeah, hopefully this will give you guys a little bit of an idea of why Mouse is so crazy. A lot of blame for that actually goes to Cyrus. I designed Cyrus around the original dex, which basically said that someone who spends too much time around members of the ghastly evo line ends up having their soul stolen. Also that getting touched by one causes excessive fear/paranoia until that person meets an untimely death. It also says that being touched by one causes permanent shaking or trembling. Which that's actually why Mouse picks up smoking after a while- to try and counteract the shakes he gets from Cyrus. Also, you guys always comment about how tired Mouse looks all the time- which that's also Cyrus's fault mostly. Mouse doesn't sleep much anyways, but when he does, it's awfully hard to get a decent rest when you have a gengar who loves using dream eater and nightmare. Both of which just serve to screw Mouse up even more. :/
So really, if it wasn't for Cyrus, Mouse probably would have turned out alright-ish. Granted, he would still have come out a fair bit meaner and more paranoid than when he first joined. But he probably would have just gone home with PTSD and been fine really. But since he has Cyrus, Mouse ended up as a psychotic killer.
