He is small, due being a young boy caveman and is the shortest of the main cast of "human" characters.

He wears a red fur skin outfit which hooks over his right shoulder. His black hair is scruffy and bunched together to form a single thick ponytail above his head. His shoes are tied together around his ankles and are likely made from a material such as leather. He has a black armband on his wrist. In contrast to the "modern" human, his ears are drawn more pointed.

When he becomes a time detective, he also starts wearing a belt.


Flint is more of an Optimistic, and friendly young boy but very protective to his friends once in trouble.

His pure heart and innocence led to him to be chosen to become a Time Detective as due to this he could establish a friendly connection to the Time Shifters. His sincere and sentimental attitude, was the reason for many of the Shifters being restored to their original forms once transformed into their evil selves. In fact he often sees the "good" in people, even when they don't necessary see it in themselves, which leads to the defeat of even the Dark Lord himself in the end. His persistence to befriend others results in him trying to do anything to make win friendship of others, he is strongest when fighting for his friends and weakest when it comes to fighting those he already considers as a friend. When expressing his desires in episode 39, he stated he wanted for everyone to get along.

Merlock Holmes noted how easily distracted Flint was and instead of just retrieving each Shifter he came across, Flint would first play with them. His overall lack of professional was noted in episode 9, even by Jillian Grey when she gave him his assignment to rescue Artie. Petra describes Flint as "always being rough", in his handling and he can at times not seem to know this own strength.

He is naive, to the point where things such as "Time Detective", "bath" and "angels" are concepts that needed to be explained to him. When faced with the concepts such as "War" being thrown at himself in episode 39, his innocence meant he couldn't understand why people would kill each other violently instead of trying to get along, nor was he aware just how dark the human heart could be for that matter.

In Episode 16, Sarah states that when Flint gets an idea, he has a habit of seeing it through. He particularly loves sports, though he is enjoy most things in life anyway, in Episode 32, the Goodman twins note that Flint was enthusiastic even towards test. Once he grasps the concept of what a "teacher" was, he came to adore Miss Iknow his teacher for what she could teach him.


He also possess strength when it comes to combat, a strong fighting spirit and a high level of endurance. His fighting skills are at their most finest when he is fighting for his friends sake. In turn, it was often due to this that many of the Shifters transformed into their Master forms. Flint's weakness is food as he always eats loads of it whenever hungry, which leads Merlock to call him "high maintenance" in episode 31.

Flint's strength was also noted by fellow Time Detective Merlock Holmes, who had originally been sent to observe and study Flint and the Time Shifters. In episode 18, Merlock noted that his strength was unnatural even for a Caveman, leading him to question if Flint was using some tool to commit these feats of strength.

After both Time Detectives are turned into bugs (Merlock into a mosquito and Flint into a Stag beetle), they end up getting captured. Flint uses his pincers to free him and Merlock. While Merlock takes care of Dino and Mite, Flint takes care of Petra. When things turn out for the worst, Leafy is called in to aid them.

After Sarah helped free him once, the Uglinator took control of Merlock personally and Flint found himself fighting against Merlock again, though this time his vampire heritage was brought out and was tougher for Flint to beat. After Flint whacked Merlock once, Getalong hits him with a love beam, giving Merlock a edge to fight back with, though was unable to free himself.
