Theodore was created to be a test in gene splicing, and never meant to be grown. The splicing took, and the growth of the creature was monitored. Curious to see the result, and prepared to destroy it, the scientists continued with the experiment. They found the creature to be docile at first. The creature also showed signs of limited intelligence; about that of a 5-year old. The creature became attached to the scientists, and very protective. They named him Theodore. He loves to watch TV, and often acts out is favorite shows. He cannot speak, but communicates through emotions, gestures and body language. Theodore accompanies the scientists to a secluded outdoor region twice a month so he may enjoy the outdoors. He never strays outside his perimeter, and chases, but never kills game.
