WHAT LEADS TO THESE?
Stockholm syndrome is essentially the mirror of Lima syndrome. None of them are true syndromes in a clinical sense, they are well-studied pathological responses that have been defined well enough that they are easily recognisable.
There are four key components that generally lead to the development of Stockholm syndrome:
1. A hostage's development of positive feelings towards their captor
2. No previous hostage-captor relationship
3. Hostages refusing to co-operate with government authorities
4. A hostage's belief in the humanity of their captor, for the reason that when a victim holds the same values as the aggressor, they cease to be perceived as a threat.
There are a number of reasons why this would happen.
1. Maybe one or more of the kidnappers don't agree with the plan and don't feel up to hurting innocents.
2. Maybe the villain has decided that he doesn't have the heart to keep his prisoner locked up.
3. This person is also likely to be the one in charge of tending to the captives, bringing them food or healing their wounds, and thus has a greater chance of developing an attachment and growing to actually care about their well-being
