Which class do you think has the most torn mental state?
I am curious to hear people discuss which class is the most mentally damaged, like went through massive ammounts of trauma.
I just like psychology and medicine, so I get curious to hear people discuss it.
I am sure people will be like "We don't know enough about any of them".
Well, I just mean discuss their mental states in themselves and maybe what we do know about their past.
Also, I came up with this idea because I noticed that all of the classes seem to have some advanced mental trouble.
Also, feel free to say which one you think is the most mentally stable.


Note, discussing the Pyro's mental state might be a difficult discussion and might even start flame wars, because we know basically nothing about that character.

I also not just want which one you think, but also try to discuss why.

Well we can already tell pyro can't tell the difference between reality and his special land.. Oh and his enemies are fat babies..

I mean come on, compared to soldier and medic he's way beyond sanity. Medic just loves being a mad doctor and soldier, since the latest comic, is on the same level as other people of teufort

Pyro obviously. Tell me when it's normal to see rainbows when burning people to their death.

Well I just mean we know the Pyro is mentally unstable, but we don't know if it was born that way, or went through some form of trauma which caused it's hallucinations in the first place.
So I kind of consider Pyro off limits to this kind of conversation unless we end up learning more about it, like if Valve releases more information on it.

Born insane and became insane is still on the same level for me..

Demoman's story is pretty messed up. He accidentally killed his adoptive parents and his biological family found him when he started developing his abilities. Also, he worked many jobs and lost an eye to an enchanted book.

He seems to handle things pretty well, all things considered. Except for his excessive drinking, he cares for his mother and really loves his job.

That's good.
I really think that the mass ammounts of ethanol he drinks is to maybe drown his past, or maybe he just loves it and drinks it cause he wants to.

In meet the director comic, you can see that the red heavy's family was killed.

I thought his sisters and mother lived, but they had to live in bad conditions and his mercenary work was to feed them.

Speaking of the Sniper, I think he feels shunned by his parents and that they don't support his career.
I also think that maybe the Soldier always wanted to help but was maybe rejected from everything, and being rejected from the military caused him to finally break and act like he was in the military, when he was really a mercenary who went on a rogue killing spree.

Well the diffrence would be one is a job and the other is a mental sickness.

Maybe Scout feels alone since he had too many brethren, and maybe they too felt alone, as maybe their mother didn't have enough love to go around.
I sure don't think it was his weaker strength, because he made up for it with his horrifying, assassin like speed.

Well maybe the Sniper says it's a job and not a mental illness, but cause of his parents always degrading his line of work, he questions himself as to it is a job or really is a mental illness and he belongs in an asylum.
So maybe he just doubts his own knowledge and questions if he is doing his job, or he is just a freak who needs to be locked away.
In my personal opinion, we all have something wrong with us, and that asylums aren't supposed to be prisons for worthless scum bags, but for people to get mentally healthy.

After seeing many videos and duscussions around the pyros identity and origins, his mental state, i would have to say, is the most warped. Since he seems to view the world as a sort of Strawberry Shortcake-like fantasy candy land while chasing enemies around and "playing" with them, he probably has the worst case of Schitzophrenia in the world. Literally, the definition for Schitzophrenia is a mental condition where the victim is unable to differentiate reality from fantasy.
