NoodlerNoodlers are are what Patches perceives as some of his fellow patients at the former asylum he was in. Mostly these were the violent patients in the ward (which Patches was considered when he was admitted). Noodlers are deaf and compensate that with their extraordinary sense of touch, using their tentacles to sense vibrations and movements. The Noodlers only have one eye. The vision in this eye is excellent.
Patches was attacked by one of these Noodlers a few weeks after he came to the Asylum. It wrapped him up in it's tentacles and tried to suffocate him. Luckily Patches kicked it in it's only eye and got away. Afterward, the Noodlers would follow him to his room, taunting Patches by slithering their tentacles under his door.
