Kip is a reporter for the Club Penguin Times, who only appears in the real life Pick Your Path Book, Star Reporter. He is described as being a pro reporter. If you rush the story of the strange events at the Stage without finding any evidence, he finds out it was Deb's hungry puffle who caused the accidents. He is very competitive, and on multiple occasions in Star Reporter will try and write up a news story before you by following you to multiple places, including the Pizza Parlor and Stage.
