I do not know if this has been done yet but I think this would be an interesting thing for us to do.
So let's start playing profilers based.

What? Like Nicol is a spike/Timmy? Garruk is Timmy?

And by that you mean Jedi and Groff. The other two were random passebys as near as I can tell.
Still... makes you feel old, doesn't it?
Nope none of those think like psycologically such as disorders, personality types, ect.

I feel old. So old.

We were gods once... T_T


Anyway, new 'walkers...

Well, Sarkhan is probably schizophrenic, and Bolas is throwing him into environments where his issues are worsened by weird magic.

Tezzeret is kind of a classic sociopath.

Koth has anger issues.

Karn has dissociative personality disorder. And screweverythinghetouchesuptheria.

Venser has a bad case of the deads.

Chandra ALSO has anger issues, and self control issues.

Elspeth...

Hooboy. Elspeth. I don't even know where to begin with Elspeth.

All of the green walkers are social Darwinists to some degree.

Chandra has some serious survivor's guilt.

I feel that a lot of Tezzeret's sociopathy is him trying to prove to himself that he's useful since neither of his parents thought anything of him. Hell he doesn't even have a proper name.

Nissa is a noble bigot. Not racist enough to go full-blown Nazi, but racist enough to want to show you how to do things properly. Also some self-loathing issues because she doesn't live up to her tribes unreasonably high standards of conformity, being a walker and all.

Karn is probably all kiiiinds of messed up.
First of all, anyone he mentors will die. No exceptions.
Second, he kind of accidentally killed his home plane.
He tried to be a pacifist and it got a whole bunch of his friends killed.
He's a nice guy, I just think he's dreadfully lonely.

Garruk is textbook antisocial personality disorder.
Big fella just don't like people.

Tibalt is a sadist.

  Jesus Christ, how many of these characters problems could have been solved with regular reassuring hugs when they were kids?

Everything wrong with Nicol Bolas could fill a library.
He's part of a species who asserts authority through the systematic genocide of all who would challenge you.
He was raised to have a God complex, what's more, he's strong enough to have a legitimate claim to the title. 

Venser suffered from a terminal case of personality cancer.
Also I feel it should be mentioned that he was the first walker to be subject to the effects of the mending.
He was a normal mage walking shoulder to shoulder with GODS, and quite frankly, could not live up to them. 
 
It's hard, being a planeswalker and growing up.
It's hard and no one understands. 

Ajani was a social pariah because of his albinism.
His brother died and he embraced rage to seek revenge.
Failing that, he decided to become a hero. All the time.

Gideon has a messiah complex.

Liliana is trapped by a lifetime of bad decisions. She's a well-meaning person, but she's backed herself into the deepest darkest corner of all corners.

Vraska is basically the Punisher.
  
Koth has a temper, not helped by being completely unable to prevent his planet from being consumed by the Robot Zombie Holocaust.

Sorin is a vampire. A constant battle between a man and his urges.

Tamiyo has a crippling addiction to harcore yaoi. :B       
 
 

Hooboy. Elspeth. I don't even know where to begin with Elspeth. 



Let's start with PTSD and go from there.
Chandra has some serious survivor's guilt.

Combine that with impulse control issues.
I feel that a lot of Tezzeret's sociopathy is him trying to prove to himself that he's useful since neither of his parents thought anything of him. Hell he doesn't even have a proper name.

Part of that seems to boil down to identity issues, as well as the devaluing of human life associated with Esperian society. Add to that dissociative disorder since people have been mucking about in his BRAIN recently.
Nissa is a noble bigot. Not racist enough to go full-blown Nazi, but racist enough to want to show you how to do things properly. Also some self-loathing issues because she doesn't live up to her tribes unreasonably high standards of conformity, being a walker and all.

Poor girl. Seriously, she ended up SO screwed up and none of it was her fault.
Tibalt is a sadist.

Dude, I think he falls into full blown psychosis. As well as probably stemming from an inferiority complex where his self worth is inherently impaired by his early failures, thereby fostering the sense to lash out though a means he finds himself accomplished at.

Everything wrong with Nicol Bolas could fill a library.
He's part of a species who asserts authority through the systematic genocide of all who would challenge you.
He was raised to have a God complex, what's more, he's strong enough to have a legitimate claim to the title. 


Human Morality. Dragon. Non-compatible. That's where that claim to the title is important.

Venser suffered from a terminal case of personality cancer.
Also I feel it should be mentioned that he was the first walker to be subject to the effects of the mending.
He was a normal mage walking shoulder to shoulder with GODS, and quite frankly, could not live up to them.

Abandonement issues as well given that he was left alone after his dad just... DIED. Explains why he grabbed onto company so hard that they had to tell him to knock that crap off.
Is there such a thing as a superiority complex? Cause he has that too.

Ajani was a social pariah because of his albinism.
His brother died and he embraced rage to seek revenge.
Failing that, he decided to become a hero. All the time.

I feel there's probably more complexity involved with that, particularly considering that Anger is a regular part of the grieving process.

Koth has a temper, not helped by being completely unable to prevent his planet from being consumed by the Robot Zombie Holocaust.

I feel like that helplessness should have some corresponding syndrome. Maybe the seeds of an inferiority complex leading to the development of a messiah complex.

Sorin is a vampire. A constant battle between a man and his urges.

Actually... not so much man. Sorin has an excellent control over his impulses. He also really has no issues indulging them in great quantity. Sapients are numbers to him. Sorin is surprisingly well adjusted when you get right down to it.

Tamiyo has a crippling addiction to harcore yaoi. :B

Hey!.... Yuri too.   
 

Hooboy. Elspeth. I don't even know where to begin with Elspeth.

It's a grab bag.

I don't know, he's awfully dismissive of his fellow vamps who are far more impulsive than he is.

There's clearly some issues going on.
I think he imitates Hedonism bot as a distraction from his issues.
He's a pretty different person when he's at home and everything he doens't like about himself is staring him in the face calling him a race traitor.   
I think Elspeth had Dependent Personality Disorder, and she may have gotten better after the events at New Phyrexia. Or not, given Wintermute's stellar awfull writing.

She may also be slightly Borderline.

Also she's a furry. <.<
Elspeth's simple: PTSD.

True, but that's a window to many other kinds of disorders.

Of which she has most.
Perhaps it would be quicker to make a list of the problems Elspeth doesn't have?

We haven't seen her exhibit any signs of paraphilias. Unless you have a "running away" fetish.

Stunted emotional growth and attachment disorder from her childhood at the very least.
She could probably make a great case study if she actually exsisted.

Jace Beleren has severe insecurity problems.

Depending on who you ask, he's also deeply in the closet.

In fairness, you'd develop insecurities too if you could HEAR EVERYTHING ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE REALLY THOUGHT OF YOU.
Aside from that, his parents shuffled him off to somebody else that could deal with him and barely every interacted with him alone after that point.
