Rex Powers is Robbie's ventriloquist dummy (it is not 100% proven that Robbie controls Rex). He does not like to be called a "dummy" or "puppet", possibly because he isn't one.Since Robbie is too shy to speak for himself most of the time, he talks as Rex. He says what's on his mind and doesn't hold back or beat around the bush. She debuted as an actress at the age of ten and has since appeared in several films and television series including the Nickelodeon series Zoey 101 and Victorious.
They are, obviously close friends, and are often seen side by side in both photos and videos.
The series is set in the remote Alaskan town of Port Moore as it is being overrun by paranormal forces.
Centering on Avan‘s character, local outcast Roman Mercer, he must overcome the town’s prejudices and his own demons if he’s to harness his repressed psychic powers and save everyone from the mass haunting threatening to destroy them all.
Rex is sometimes seen slightly moving or talking when not being held by Robbie, hinting he may not be a puppet.
An example is in The Birthweek Song, Tori is trying to find her sister a birthday present and Rex shouts from inside Robbie's book bag, "Just get the girl the massage helmet! Tori quickly responds by kicking the bag and Rex yells in pain, "Ah, my ribs! Another example is in Beck's Big Break when Robbie is going to get him out of the drawer in the guidance counselor's office and he shouts from inside the drawer, "Hey, don't you knock? He's known to annoy most of the gang, except Robbie.
