He suffered from low self-esteem, exacerbated by his chronic acne.Family relations remained difficult; his younger sister Nadia publicly humiliated him about his acne and his lack of girlfriends. He fantasized about her death, and on one occasion made a mock grave for her. He was overjoyed when in 1981 she was placed in a group home because of her delinquent behavior and drug abuse
Lépine did a spell serving food out in the cafeteria but people complained about his acne. He was banished back to the kitchens and tried to grow a beard. When Dominique Leclair returned to college in the autumn, Lépine followed suit.
But he was also becoming increasingly hyperactive, always in a hurry. All nerves. And acne. Severe acne that embarrassed him.
Finally, he was put on food-serving duty in the cafeteria where his pace would at least be tempered by the task. But the steamy kitchen atmosphere had festered his already unsightly acne problem.
Dominique recalls: ''The employees would say they didn't want him to serve them their lunch because of his acne. They were mean.''Lepine was stuffed back in the kitchen where no one would have to look at his pimples.He tried growing a beard to hide the acne, but it was scraggly and seemed to make the rest of his complexion worse. He would cut it off and grow it again like a suburban lawn.

And the acne. Everyone noticed he had bad acne.
