Played by LEO BRETTKELLY-CHALMERS
A kind-hearted young man who is unable to turn his back on the defenseless animals left to fend for themselves after the virus struck, Kip has been selflessly looking after all the animals in the zoo which has now been commandeered by Ebony and her Zootists. When Slade escapes from his ‘prison’, he remains in the vicinity of the zoo, thinking that it would be the last place that they would search for him, and it is here that the Mall Rat encounters Kip.
Slade urges him to remain silent, but Kip simply states that he always finds it better to keep quiet and to carry on. Kip has managed to keep feeding the meat-eaters within the zoo by scouting for ‘things’ that have died out in the wild.
Unwilling to see anyone suffer – man or beast – Kip waters and feeds the prisoners that Ebony has kept within the cages, despite her reservations. He is also witness to Zoot appearing on top of an animal cage … unaware that this is simply a hologram engineered by Java and Mega.
