Guide Mentor

Character Role Analysis

Kevin a.k.a. Freak

You might expect a mentor to be more of a Mr. Miyagi type, but Freak teaches Max more than he could possibly imagine. Not only does this little guy teach his friend about reading and science, but he also guides Max out from the down under and helps him face his past, too.
