Campaign: Out of Time
Power Level: Classic
Once a lab assistant for Dr. Lifespark. After displeasing the doctor he was genetically altered.
Learned to speak and read from watching others in the lab but has no formal education.
No memories of the original host.
The doctor has performed many experiments on him to test resistances. The creature showed an affinity for electricity. (Drive for being electrocuted) The creature showed an ability to grow gaining strength in the larger sizes.
Was pitted against other creations to test their strength.
Was considered to have primate level intellect and put through corresponding tests.
Hid his advanced intelligence from the doctor to avoid worse tests.
Blink didn’t overtly save him, but unlocked his cage while the doctor wasn’t paying attention, and then fabricating a reason to take him away from his lab allowing the creature to get free.
Leathery hide and as he grows gains bone plates and spurs.
Crustacean-Rex was small enough to fit into a dog cage… but he got bigger. Human cages were breakable also, but then the doctor would have known how smart Crustacean-Rex was. Mazes easy. The doctor can’t know. Crustacean-Rex learns talking to the disappearing girl. She never sees Crustacean-Rex. The doctor takes cage people apart,puts them back together. Crustacean-Rex makes sure the doctor likes Crustacean-Rex so he doesn’t get taken apart. The doctor doesn’t know but Crustacean-Rex knows how he puts them together with green glows.
Crustacean-Rex grows bigger. The doctor wouldn’t like that. Crustacean-Rex becomes small again. Crustacean-Rex does not like the doctor. Disappearing girl takes doctor away. Need only wait for Doctor to disappear again. Crustacean-Rex wants to escape.
