Keagan's character, Blue, is a woman who has no desire for anything and is consequently defined by other people's expectations. Her story is told in Nirvana Syndrome, the third part of Alexithymia. Keagan experiences Aphantasia - when one does not possess a functioning mind's eye and cannot visualise imagery - which is her form of neurodiversity.
