Kite, A.K.A. Experiment 175, is an illegal genetic experiment created by Jumba Jookiba. He is designed to redirect lightning (does so by his extendible tail to ground himself as he flies up into a storm and gathers up electrical energy, and then using the electricity that he collects he then fires a bolt of lightning at large structures). His one true place is protecting Kokaua Town from lightning strikes.
Experiment 175 was the 175th genetic experiment created by Jumba with Hämsterviel's funding. He designed to redirect lightning.
175 and the other first 624 experiments were deactivated and smuggled to Earth by Jumba during his mission to capture Experiment 626.
All of the experiment pods were released and scattered across the island of Kauai.
At an unknown point, 175 was activated, captured and named Kite.
He can be a kite.
