Remaining from his parasitic sibling are an extra leg and couple of arms, including shoulders and an extra pair of nipples, all of them attached to Rudy's pelvis and protruding from his abdomen. Also, an undeveloped head is attached to his sternum, presenting an incipient ear and a patch of hair. Additionally, Rudy's own right leg is severely deformed, ending on a stump at the height of the knee, disabling him from walking without the use of crutches.[1]
