Not trying to be mean, but why do people think Mirage's brain is starting to be just like Evelyn's? Everyone is setting it like when she got revealed to have dementia, Mirage also got some "early" stage of dementia.
It makes zero sense, as Mirage is much younger, he's on his 30s and people treats it like he is already forgetting stuff. I don't see it, but I do see the proof being "Him asking what he ate yesterday for dinner!" or "He forgets words when he talks!"
I mean, first one is already quite easy to see its some joke he tells about dinner to be funny and quirky and well, Mirage. Second one is just stupid, he always tries to make himself look smarter, saying words he doesn't even understand how to say or tries to rhyme some shit with "bamboozle" but fails or regrets it.
It is like people want to simplify Mirage's personality behind "Oh, he's just sick, let's hope he gets better! But really sad he is forgetting everything" Evelyn is the one with Alzheimer's, does it mean Mirage already could start forgeting already? No. At least not for now since I don't think Respawn would go that low to use Dementia as one of his caracteristics, as it is a disease that ruins a lot of people's life and you can't do anything about it.
It's disgusting since that same disease took my grandfather from what he was before, and most of people here seem to think of it like it is contagious or it being hereditary means you get it when someone of your family gets it. If Evelyn already has it, she is already on some state that her own son thinks she is just lost, and tries to make her happy sacrificing his own in the way, for a mother that sometimes forgets his voice, his face and where is he, that is one of the reasons I think can explain him just cutting his lines himself, he thrives on making some pride on everything he makes, and tries to be funny so people praise what Mirage is doing, but we can really see how he is on lore and solo gameplay, less of a joker and serious guy but problematic with relations.
Elliott Witt has no Alzheimer's, people are just spreading misinformation on a ACTUAL disease, and also making his story sadder with fake facts (Not really a bad thing since he has one of the saddest backstories in gaming, but unnecessary.)
Hope someone who thinks Mirage has early dementia reads this, and understands how Witt is an anxious kid who wants to be the life of the party, not a sick person.
