The Animal is an alien from the Cosmic Alliance expansion.
As the Animal, you have the power to Party. During the Alliance phase, each player that doesn't invite the Animal must lose one ship to the warp. When the Animal wins an encounter as an ally or a main player, each of the Animal's allies may draw a card from the cosmic deck.
Wild: You party so hard that it causes a Cosmic Quake. After using this flare, give it to the Animal (or discard it, if the Animal is not playing).
Super: Each player who doesn't invite the Animal loses two ships instead of one.
