      Children sometimes have trouble separating fantasy from reality, so....

      The Promethean thinks everything on TV is true. To avoid the goofiness, this can turn into a dangerous 'stalker-y' style behavior, if the Promethean's favorite character on the television is being 'oppressed' and in need of being 'protected'.

      Also, the Promethean might 'fall in love' with a fictional TV character and be bewildered and hurt when the reality falls far short of the carefully-structured inner fantasy-world the Promethean's built up in his or her's head.

        Reverse-animism. Humans are alive, Prometheans are heading for alive, everything else is dead and static - so they get very antsy around machines that can perform functions without human input, such as automatic doors.

          Can't tell the difference between people and dolls/mannequins/puppets ect, gets unnerved when they don't talk back.

          Only uses the first/second/third person when talking, regardless of context.

          Only feels comfortable using a few stock phase ("hello sir" "I'll take that one please" "It was nice to meet you") and tries to build conversations around them.

          Completely lacks the concept of "authority" and doesn't see why they should listen to these people just because they have badges.

          Doesn't understand that for humans, death is permanent.

          Causally eats waste/animals in public.

          Only talks by imitating what others have already said.

            Isn't death pretty permanent for Prometheans if they have already died once unless they are an Osiran?

              If I'm reading the 2ed rules correctly, a promethean can come back to life as often as it likes, barring destruction of the heart/GM fiat?

              Either way, it's far less permanent then it is for humans, who are near-universally on their first death.

                Go back to the "The Journey to the River" section and take note to the first word of the paragraph :P

                    Either way is there a mention in the book that the Promethean would recognize even their own mortality? Sure, getting hurt is something to be avoided due to pain and loss body functionality (if say a limb got removed since Created don't suffer from wound penalties), but could a Promethean simply not realize that taking too much damage can actually kill them?
                    Well, the first time they don't die permanently, but being resurrected could easily lead to the faulty assumption that no deaths are permanent.

                      And since humans have souls, which are widely considered to be immortal, a Promethean might still have trouble with the idea that a human dying means they're not "here" any more.

                        Gets endlessly frustrated at the existence of different languages - how can such a barrier to community be permitted to exist?

                        Conversely, regards different languages as essential to the different facets of humanity, and tries to learn a new one for each Refinement (or even Role).

                          Thinks automated speech systems are people and tries to talk to them.

                          Doesn't understand the concept of a "childhood" or how children are different then adults.

                          Can't tell the difference between fictional accounts and real accounts, which may get them into problems when they assume WW2 is a made-up war from call of duty.

                          Never deviates from very precise grammatical rules.

                          Only talks in the present tense.

                            -Refers to things wants to be true as if they are true.
                            -Only argues to determine or change, how things are.
                            -Talks as if don't exist, only refers to consequences of her actions. Never to herself.
                            -Wonders who are 'Somebody', 'Anybody' and 'Nobody'.
                            -Annoyed with people, not being able to hear a voice (thoughts) in her head.
                            -Only "can" learn new things through instructions, written or otherwise.
                            -Seriously contemplates a theory, that shadows are an extension of things, that cast them.
                            -Treats past and future as actual places one can get to. Certainly, somebody should know where they are. People wouldn't complain about it so often, otherwise.

                            Somewhat, off topic, but reading this thread reminded about aphantasia" (wikipedia).
