DefinitionA disorder in which a person has difficulty recovering after experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event.
And I would say Cole (and the rest of the Ninja for that matter) have experienced a terrifying event. Seeing Zane disappear at the hand of a firey humanoid snake sorcerous and being blasted himself into another realm to lose the Travelers Tea due to the Land Bounty (and almost him and all his friends) falling off a cliff, that is terrifying.
Cole has experienced a terrifying event. But does he show the symptoms of PTSD?
General symptoms include:
Cole has shown these symptoms:
Therefore, I can conclude that Cole has PTSD. The only thing that doesn't match up is that PTDS symptoms usually appear months after the event, while Cole's symptoms appeared shortly after the trauma happened.
Thanks for coming along with me!! Good day, fangirls and boys. GOODNIGHT
