Description: Lazy Dragon (he gets his name from a Chinese folk hero) is of average height and build, standing 5'7" and weighing 140 lbs. He usually has a dreamy expression on his face. Dragon's power is the ability to animate small figures of animals into full grown representations of these creatures. He must first create the figurine, either via folded paper or by sculpting something such as a bard of soap, a potato, or a carrot. He then projects his consciousness into the figurine, resulting in a full-sized real animal. When he does this his original body falls inert, looking as if he's sleeping. So far, he has created a mouse, a cat, a tiger, a polar bear, and a Chinese dragon (in 20' and 40' lengths). The creatures are for all intents and purposes "real" and can be killed (at which point his mind returns to his original body). Presumably, if you killed his body, he'd have to live in his animal form for as long as possible.
The value given for his Multiform pool is an arbitrary figure. It will let you build most animals, although a full-sized 40’ dragon might be a bit tough. Game Master's should assign a value that suits them. Also note the animal forms retain Lazy Dragon's INT score.
Campaign Use and Designer’s Notes: You might want to use Duplication instead of Multiform. I built the Multiform from the Ultimate Mystic version of Astral Projection. In any event, Lazy Dragon can easily be built up from 116 points, simply by upping his base characteristics (especailly CON, PD, and ED), giving him martial arts, and assorted related skills. Now you have a rather unusual Ninja Hero character—one who may know all the kung fu styles of his animal forms or may turn into animals associated with the classic kung fu styles (i.e. monkey, snake, mantis, leopard...).
