Disabled Characters
rachel17rachel1726 days agoMisc
This is a club for disabled fans to find disabled characters. Abled people are free to join but no fetishists! Disabled people deserve respect just like anyone else.

This club catalogues characters with both physical and mental disabilities. canon disabled characters are preferred but noncanon disabled characters are also accepted, especially if there is strong coding.

There is unfortunately a small number of disabled characters in media, so this is a place where people can hopefully discover new media that speaks to the disabled experience.

Recommendations are much appreciated! Feel free to comment on your favorite characters and why you interpret them as disabled.

Here is the current list of disabled characters:

Chihiro Shindou - blind in one eye & anterograde amnesiac
Daredevil - blind
Edward Elric - amputee
Ellen- chronic illness
Fiore Forvedge Yggdmillennia - paraplegic

LemonMIntCat (23 days ago) #62361492As I saw she wasn't listed.
ENTRY #125852, Michella Watch. A supporting character from Blood Blockade Battlefront. She has paralysis to her lower body, as such she utilizes a wheelchair. Secondly she is blind, which occurs as a result of something in the series. I rather like Michella though she doesn’t appear frequently, she has a lot of courage especially in protecting her younger brother.

Thank you! I’ve added her now
