As a psychologist, my work is to solve other people's problems. I'd met with so many different cases I thought I've seen it all. How wrong I was. I'm so grateful I've got no family in Pogoren. I don't know what I'd do if I had. I thought about leaving, but decided against it. 'Hell, this is my city, these are my people.' -- I thought. Now... I'm not so sure it was the right decision. But since I can't change it, let's try to make the best out of our situation, regardless of how dire it is.

– Psychologist's description

The Psychologist can be selected when setting up a custom game. The player is allowed to choose the gender of the character, name, in-game appearance, and character picture- either from a small library of included pictures or from a user-supplied picture placed in the Documents/This War of Mine/Portraits folder.


The Psychologist's trait, Strong willed allows him/her to to cheer up depressed characters with a much better chance of succeeding. (At par or better than Zlata).

Although stated otherwise, it appears that the psychologist actually can become depressed if witnessing too many crimes by the shelter members.

In-game example

A picture would be nice.
