I never got why Henry is throughout the entire game is a quite person. I mean if I was locked up like that and being chased around by a homicidal killer, I would be terrified!

I remember reading an article or interview way, way back when the game was new saying that his character was meant to be an emotional blank slate so you could project your own feelings onto him. So your feelings are his essentially. Basically like Chrono in Chrono Trigger.

As for how well it really worked for people is up for debate I guess.

True, I still do wish they could've added a bit more to him though

^ Henry's reactions and "non-reactions" are my favorite parts of the game. For example, when he first sees Cynthia's ghost, he looks back a little and has this "do you see this s**t?!" look on his face, cracks me up every time.

Some people really do have quieter personalities like that and under-react to things. Not that I've been in situations as crazy as Henry's, but people are always noticing my lack of reactions to things, like hitting my head on a metal pipe or receiving good/bad news, etc. Honestly I show more emotion when I type things than IRL.

But yeah, I've heard something about him being intended as a bit of a blank slate too. A lot of people just pick on him though.

For the last five days, he has not left his apartment. It's not because he wants to, but because he can't. It might as well be chained shut. When people knock, he does not answer. He's just a weirdo nobody knows very well anyway.

Sitting alone in his apartment, he tries to break through this barrier in another way, and actually try to get to know someone and connect with them. He once had friends, family, acquaintances, but they might as well be ghosts now. They have nothing to do with him nor he with them, but nonetheless, he is often haunted by these people and the hole their absence leaves in his existence.

It's all happening because a killer lives within him. This killer is called social anxiety disorder, and it is a savage motherfucker that has methodically, ritualistically, murdered every one of his relationships and friendships. And every time someone new enters his life, it strikes right away and these become the new haunting, nagging feelings that chase you all over the place and chastise you for your self-imposed seclusion.

But maybe it will actually work out with the girl down the hall. And it better, because he tried talking to her once and now it's so bad that his safe space isn't even safe anymore.
