The Beast and The Hunter. Two persons who discovered that pain and suffering, the broken person, can be more evolved
In the movie, one of main character other than Kevin Crumb, who has 24 personalities, is a girl named Casey Cooke.
In the story, Casey is just an outcast, who accidentally involved in abduction by Kevin, or rather by 'Dennis', one of Kevin's alter ego, making her as an 'unwilling hero' and the witness of resurrection of Kevin's 24th alter-ego," The Beast ".
Casey is a victim of abuse and when The Beast found the wounds throughout Casey's body, either because of abuse or self-harm, Beast discovered that she was just like him, the broken person. As an ex Self-Harm or Self-Injury (SH) patient, I found my connection with the two characters, "The Broken".
M. Night Shyamalan used an interesting concept in his movie universe, where the pain and suffering can be a force, whether it used for good or evil. Casey Cooke used her suffering experience as the ability to survive throughout the film, plus previously she had trained to hunt by his father. Meanwhile, Kevin, he created a variety of alter ego to survive the suffering. In the end, he create a force from his splitting personality ability, the 24th alter ego named "The Beast". Unfortunately, The Beast and The Horde (Kevin's dark personality: Patricia, Hedwig, Dennis), has another view in using these powers.
"The Beast" (Kevin Crumb) and "The Hunter" (Casey Cooke) teaches that we can transform our pain and suffering into strength. But for what our power is used, the choice is in our hands.
That's why I drew two of them in here, with crack in the background as the representation of "Broken". I feel they are like my representation. Sometimes I feel "the power" from the pain, but it's not easy to used it for good.
