* Completely Untrue. Hell, he uses it. the Chief explicitly acknowledges it's existence. And if you play through the game far enough, and Norman survives up to that point, then [[spoiler: there is a scene where it turns out that the ARI is causing the hallucinations, not the Drugs, due to Jayden's Overuse of the ARI, which is subtly hinted at throughout the game.]]

Given the fact of how much of a {{Badass}} he is than the other three, it is considerable. He has obtained all that badassery from the FBI, including the art of killing. The ARI is his version of the Eagle Eye. When he first met Blake, it would appear he is blue, as in he's an ally. They argue many times and Blake is still blue. However, when he puts him at gunpoint in "Under Arrest", Norman sees Blake red, as in he's an enemy. It turns out the Philadelphia police are Templars. When Norman tells Captain Perry about it, he lets Blake do what he wants instead of stopping him. This reveals Perry is red instead of blue.

As suggested by {{Yahtzee}} [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/1528-Heavy-Rain in his review of the game]], Norman Jayden is from the future, explaining his access to technology that seems startlingly advanced for the setting. His shakes and nosebleeds are not actually caused by his ARI/triptocaine abuse, but they're a consequence of him altering history.

In it, Ethan has completely lost his sanity, and started shouting his son's name at random intervals.

In it, Ethan has completely lost his sanity, and started shouting his son's name at random intervals. intervals.

[[WMG: [[Every playable character has psychic powers, has had them in the past or has experience with the supernatural]]
This is from the cut content that explains Ethan's black outs ([[spoiler: When Ethan had his accident, he made a mind-link with Scott so he blacks out every time Scott kills someone or does anything as the Origami Killer. That street he keeps going to is actually where Scott's brother died]]), but here's the basic idea of what I think is going on for each character, keeping this in context:
* Ethan is a telepath who developed his powers due to brain trauma or the severe mental trauma of Jason's death. Since he can't control his power when it emerges, he loses control completely [[spoiler: because he's being overwhelmed with Scott's emotions]]. This also bites him in the ass since he can only telepathically communicate with one person - the origami killer who ''is'' aware of the connection between the two.
* Madison is a seer capable of predicting the future as well as a much weaker telepath, only able to read the people much closer towards her. At one point, her insomnia allowed her to predict someone breaking into her apartment and thwart the men who tried to rob/kill her but the trauma has led her to block her visions and suffer nightmares of the intruders. This would explain why she prefers to sleep in a motel -- her Third Eye isn't seeing her in any danger there.
* Norman had ESP which allowed him to sense evidence at a better rate than any detective but he has lost his power. He's using the ARI as a substitute because he can't operate at his level of skill without it [[spoiler: and the ARI has much worse effects on him than any other user because of his now-diminished powers]].
* Scott is the exception as he has worked some... bizarre cases in the past that the police don't want acknowledged and he keeps quiet as a sort of duty.
* The Origami Killer is a telepath like Ethan but has control over his power. He sees into the eyes of other people and uses it to search for possible victims as well as uses it as a means of mind control [[spoiler: because there's only so far that one person can go with a police uniform, especially at his age]]. He, at one point, made a permanent link with Ethan but is controlling the neural bridge to keep Ethan's mind out of his own but the stress of the murders overwhelms Ethan and causes the black-outs. Ethan trying to save Jason, plus the formation of the mental bridge, served as his stressor and sparked his murders. [[spoiler: He did work for the police as a psychic consultant on the side... up until he witnessed the car accident.]]

* Uh... not actually. [[spoiler: He kept some high-profile criminals out of jail, so they repaid him by helping him set up the trials. Perhaps they're aiding him financially, or he's being paid to keep quiet.]]
