Riptor : KI

Killer Instinct

  • 7' 0"
  • 700lbs
  • 4 years old

A product of UltraTech's DNA manipulation project. By mixing human and reptilian genes they hope to cross intelligence and ferocity in a lethal fighting machine.

The following biographical information is quoted from Rare's old website

Another of Ultratech's miraculously realised concepts: a crossbreed of human and reptilian DNA, resulting in a creature that combines formidable intelligence with sheer brute strength. Nurtured from the egg by a dedicated Ultratech professor and her team, the beast nicknamed 'Riptor' by others has barely reached 4 years of age before it first demonstrates its full savage power in a human kill. Riptor is confused and often finds itself torn between human reasoning and predatory instincts, resorting to attack when it fails to understand the situation, as ever more people find out the hard way.
