Kif Kroker is a hard-working and long suffering alien lieutenant with the Democratic Order of Planets (DOOP). He does all the toiling and hard work for his boss, Zapp Brannigan, and ends up taking the fall for Zapp’s bungling errors. Zapp thinks of him as his most loyal friend but Kif considers Zapp a total jackass. Kif is completely enamored with his girlfriend Amy and has a hidden knack for makeovers and hairdressing. Kif has no bones and is supported by a system of inflated bladders.
