When he dresses up as a villain, he carries 14 separate and joined hands on various parts of his body, called “Father”.

The palms are both pale grey, with a golden box at the base of each. On the latter, there are two holes. A sort of large crimson cord that splits in two connects those on top of his head to those around his neck.
