"Patheothetic" is a term Kahm invented to describe a certain sensation he felt at the "patheticness" of something, which caused that something to be appealing to him. Usually used to describe something very obscure, little known, and unpopular, as well as a weak character in a video game (such as Magikarp or Kakuna from Pokemon). Kahm would frequently seek such things out, and occasionally try and put himself in situations where "patheothetic" things were all he had available to him (usually one thing at a time in particular). Kahm would also utilize this sense to try and find happiness in places of confinement, such as hospitals and group homes.
