Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousDisorder: Nessa's blunt manner of speaking, limited emotional range and occasionally saying weird things are somewhat reminiscent of Autism, though it never gets brought up. That she always wears the same footwear no matter what she's doing is also somewhat similar to a comfort item.
