The character enters into a fugue state where they display little attention to external stimuli. They will still function physiologically but refrain from speaking and stare off into the distance, unable to focus on events around them. Unlike catatonia, a person in a fugue state will walk around if lead about by a helper, but is otherwise unresponsive. The fugue state is usually a persistent state, but it can be an occasional state that is triggered by some sort of external stimuli similar to the original trauma that triggered the disorder.
A character with GAD will be almost entirely useless unless convinced otherwise, and then only for a short period of time. Another character can attempt to use a relevant social skill to coax the GAD character into doing what is required of them. If the character with the disorder fails at the task, however, all future attempts to coax them will suffer a cumulative –10 penalty.
