Namesake: the omonymous album by the Italian group MusicaPerBambini. It could be translated as MasterPiece or, better, as MasterWork.
Appearance: a very tall and lanky greyish humanoid figure. The face is a monochrome liquid-crystal display, which it can use to communicate or to show data.
Developmental potential: A
While not being physically strong, CapoLavoro has the ability of sprouting an infinite number of arms, and shaping each hand as any tool the user or the stand have ever witnessed.
This means that this stand is able to conjure: wrenches, screwdrivers, pincers, drills, calipers, rulers, saws, circular saws, chainsaws, hex keys, cutters, knives, knife sharpeners, cleavers, scissors, shears, spades, rakes, hammers, grass trimmers, lawnmowers, leaf blowers, vacuum cleaners, chisels, scalpels, flashlights, laser pointers, blowtorches, lighters, stethoscopes, sphygmomanometers, syringes, USB keys, slide rules, files, brushes, bottle openers, can openers, corkscrews, microscopes, defibrillators, toilet plungers, floppy disk readers, levels, plumb lines, knitting needles, crochet hooks, fishing rods, irons, anvils, pickaxes, ANYTHING.
Notes and background:
This stand belongs to an old handyman. When he develops it he doesn’t use it that much, because he already has all the tools he needs and doesn’t really see the point of having some spirit doing all the work for you, it’s like cheating and, after all, he is more than capable of facing his work by himself. Because of this CapoLavoro is left free to wander around and develops a curious and inquisitive personality and this, coupled with its powerful ability, creates huge troubles, and it’s up to the protagonists to retrieve and tame this stand - and make the user more aware of its power.
This stand was hugely inspired by Il MilleMani (the thousand-hands), a track in the aforementioned album, which describes a similar creature.
