Demian's Thoughts: This is a physically weak character with largely disappointing artwork, though it does have some surprisingly powerful special attacks like "cause disease" (which does damage every turn thereafter) and "acrid breath" (which leads to automatic victory if the opponent can't back off quickly enough).

Praeriedog's Thoughts: I actually like this character, considering the character itself is the major weapon. Touching, scratching, breathing.. You can also pick up and throw a rock. Unlike the original Nova characters, the character sheet is only half as wide and doesn't give a description of the moves on the back.

My main problem with this character is that, in the booklet I have anyway (published by Greysea), on page 33 "Dodge", the picture goes down so far it covers part of the text at the bottom and I can only see the bottom half of the last sentence, which says "any Thump or Punch that scores next turn." What is the rest of it? You really need the rest of that text to play properly. [editor's note -- in my copy, all the text is visible: Tell opponent: "No restrictions, and add +1 to any Thump or Punch that Scores next turn." (P*)]
