Description: Kid Dinosaur is a young boy of 14 years of age, who stands 5'2" and weighs 100 lbs. He's fairly average looking, with acne, brown hair, and a visible birthmark on his face. He has the ability to transform himself into any dinosaur he can imagine. The only problem is that his mass stays the same. So he can turn into a Tyrannosaurus, although he'll be about 3' tall... He was a constant pest, who liked to hang around aces. This resulted in his being present when Fortunato trashed the Astronomer's base and thus was one of the first to die when the Astronomer took his revenge.

Campaign Use and Designer’s Notes: Instant (annoying) sidekick, just add PC hero for Kid Dinosaur to idolize. If you’d rather not go with Shape Sift and VPP, you could buy Kid Dinosaur a Multiform with about a dozen (or more) forms. At the very least, he’s been a Tyrannosaurus, Pterosaur, Triceratops, Plesiosaur (IIRC correctly). Just remember, whatever he turns into, it won’t be any larger than what he is normally.
