"What is Kevin, precisely? He appears to exhibit several characteristics that aren't at all standard for humans, and I theorised that perhaps he could be genetically engineered - chimeric - but I understand there are also some independently nonhuman sapients in the greater Desert Bluffs and Night Vale region, of which it's also possible he's an example. Information or research papers would be greatly appreciated!"

Ahem. Our analysis has proven rather inconclusive as to the exact nature of what Kevin is. There have been, however, some interesting finds.
Part of his chemical make-up is reminiscent of cosmic debris, or as some of the interns have come to call it, ‘star dust.’ The other parts are, as listed in the reports, “unknown and quite frankly horrifying.” He has the ability to shapeshift at will, but only when the dosages of his medication are lowered or stopped. Otherwise, his abilities are hampered quite a bit.
His anatomy appears primarily human, with a few notable exceptions—a third functioning eye, his teeth, and…ah, well, his genitalia, intersex by nature, though that he can shapeshift that as well if it pleases him to.
Considering the extent of his pre-stasis amnesia, however, we have not been able to ask him for further information. He remembers little outside of his life in the lab.
