Figure.1: A female ageplayer (Avatarius kinderlocus)
In behaviour they also mimic human children, for reasons I shall divulge soon. They can be seen of the company of 'parents', or 'playing' with other ageplayers in a herd commonly called 'A bunch of snot nosed brats'. They have the ability to craft and utilize crude objects they call 'toys'.
Now, one may be asking themselves why the Ageplayer is so infamous and evil. The answer is many fold. The first is that Ageplayers eat other avatars. They lure them in by imitating kids, so when the hapless avatar goes to help the 'poor lost confused child', they are eaten alive attachments and all. Here is a rare photo of an ageplayer entrapping its prey:

Another great evil the Ageplayer purposefully creates is that of confusing the innocent ... pixelers. What are pixelers? The people in Second Life who... pixel... each other. With their pixels. Into the other's pixel.
And it's hard enough on Pixelers these days, with the Lindens cracking down on depictions of child porn in SL and the Lindens' unceasing efforts to destroy... pixeling... scripts, without adding in kinder-lookalikes to the mix. After all, suppose someone walked in on a Pixeler, and saw he/she/it was pixeling an ageplayer, which looks like a sweet innocent child. Imagine how that would play out in the SLustice system.
To all Pixelers out there, be forewarned! Before you engage your pixel to theirs in pixeling, make sure you are pixeling another avatar, and not an ageplayer!
We shall end with some methods of dispelling an ageplayer. This depends highly upon the strength of the ageplayer involved. For most, a simple shout of "Pedophile!" or "AR'd!!!" will cause them to flee and occasionally spontaneously combust in fright. Remember these two words, and you shall avoid the bulk of the lot.
For much stronger ageplayers, we advise that you do not attempt to handle it yourself. Retreat if you can, avoid confrontation at all costs. If you must fight the Ageplayer, attempt to garner multiple friends and unleash ARs upon said ageplayer. If all else fails, pray to the Almighty Lindens to spare your lives in the face of such an evil.
If you encounter a pack of ageplayers, no matter how weak they are, you must run! Only a Great Linden wields the necessary power to overcome such heinous villains.
Please stay tuned for a lecture on another Great Evil, "The Nude Newbie", coming soon. We will also test your understanding of the Ageplayer at that time.
