The Bedlam Royal Hospital was founded as the priory of St Mary of Bethlehem; an institutes that focused on the mentally unstable. Built in 1247, the actual building was not used for treating much, not until the fourteenth century. Medical treatment for insanity was largely ineffective throughout this time, though patients did, in fact, recover. The violent and dangerous were restrained with iron manacles and chains. Due to this affect, the hospital was shut down, and blocked off for the public. It is said the hospital is haunted by the lonelypatients that died under the stress and treatment of it’s most diabolical tests and procedures against them.
Now, in 1995, new technologies are being borne, a revolution for science and the works, the hospital was bought and opened for the use of psychiatric intelligence and required support and care for it’s incoming patients. Staff are being pulled under tight weights, tests, and strict training, the income, some of the most vehement patients around the world. However, it’s been held to secretive conferment of the actual intent of the hospital. Unspeakable tests and overwhelming theories that interest the staff of Bethlehem are kept under wraps of the government, and the new founder Leroy Connard.
Leroy has a warped sense of right and wrong, the less moral, the better. His staff is one of the morally flawed. With no investigation, Dr. Connard is a well known genius, intelligent beyond belief, but also one of the few men that would be questions on which side of the desk he belonged. Craved and long lived, what is it with this mad genius? His staff is nothing less than the finest at what they do. Some with cruel intent, anything of the solaceness of compliance. As they say, Dr. Connard just wants to see all his patients fly away with a smile upon their face.
