Symptom (症状, Shōjō) is a departure from normal function or feeling which is noticed by a patient, reflecting the presence of an unusual state, or of a disease.
Causes and Effects
The cause of Symptom is the person being cloned from a baby by using CAP Technology. It's explained by Marble and Ataru Kashiwagi, when the people infected by the symptom, it will cause their personality being changed. The Symptom's stage will also evolved as being damaged their head or mind. It has a three stages which included:
The first stage neither effects the person physically nor has any changes to personality.
The Second Stage of the symptom will cause drastic personality changes, in which the affected person will become somewhat brutal and disrespectful towards people. They show little interest in doing normal, healthy things, and show high interest in doing bad/dangerous things. Despite being the second stage, their personality can still change a little as the Symptom progresses, for example Yuuma who showed was very disrespectful towards people during the beginning of his Second Stage, later he starts to respect people in some way.
In the Third Stage of symptom, people will started gone berserk as they loves killing which it's way more violent than the Second Stage does. People will not care about life and also don't trust anyone other than him/herself, especially against the person where it's cloned from (For example, Koyori Kanda wants to kill Yuri Kashiwagi after went berserked). The only way to heal Third Stage was both original and clone re-fused together as one.
