About Me: I’m about 100 feet tall. I often use my bare hands to hunt and gather food for a village of 25. Immediately after graduating high school I declined a position as the president of Canada in order to pursue my dream of shape-shifting. While sleeping I help lower CO2 emissions by not breathing. I can run REALLY fast. I’ve never underestimated anything, ever. And my eyes are, actually, diamonds; which means they sparkle like the sun but leave me completely blind.
