Arbron is a fictional character in the Animorphs series, by K. A. Applegate.

Arbron was an Andalite aristh, a cadet, who was never serious, and was always competitive with Elfangor-Sirinial-Shamtul, who, back then was, an aristh, too, but later became a hero thanks to the Ellimist intervening.

One day they were both summoned to the battle bridge of a Dome ship known as the StarSword, and was soon dispatched into a possible battle against the Skrit Na, under the supervision of War Prince Alloran-Semitur-Corrass.

Originally they were sent to capture the Skrit Na ship and to return two humans, Loren and Hedrick Chapman, who were kidnapped by the Skrit Na, back to Earth.

However, he discovered the Time Matrix, the most powerful weapon imaginable, in another Skrit Na ship. They then headed to the Taxxon home world in pursuit of the ship.

Arbron acquired a Taxxon morph in disguise. He, Elfangor, and Alloran were on the Taxxon home world when a Taxxon was dropped from a train and and killed. He and presumably Alloran could not resist the vile Taxxon hunger and fed on the Taxxon, unlike Elfangor, who barely managed to resist. He lost track of both Alloran and Elfangor in the chaos.

He remained in Taxxon morph after the two-hour limit of morphing and became a nothlit, an Andalite trapped in a morph body. He managed to escape from his Yeerk pursuers, and joined The Living Hive, a "creature" that controlled the rebel Taxxons that fought against the Yeerks. The Living Hive consulted with Arbron as it did not understand the machines that the Yeerks used, while Arbron did. Elfangor was sucked into The Living Hive while he was driving a Ford Mustang. Arbron and The Living Hive planned an assault on the Taxxon home world against the Yeerks. Although Arbron and Elfangor knew that the battle would be a slaughter as Taxxons do not stand much of a chance against Hork-Bajir because of their bladed bodies. Since one cannot tell the different between a rebel Taxxon and a Taxxon controller, Elfangor was forced to kill both as he fled to the Jahar in the Mustang.

Arbron had reached the battle before Elfangor and was at the Jahar when he reached it. Arbron could no longer resist the vile Taxxon hunger and he reached out for Chapman and Loren, but Alloran suddenly appeared and defeated, but did not kill Abron.

Abron later left the Taxxon home world and traveled to Earth some time later. He became the leader of the Taxxons who wanted to fight the Yeerks because they had been denied the morphing technology when the Yeerks obtained it. Arbron became an important ally to the Animorphs during their final battle against the Yeerks. He led the Taxxon army of non-Controllers, sacrificing many in the battle, in order to sustain peace on Earth. Some time after the Yeerks' defeat, Arbron was killed by poachers in the Amazon, who were incarcerated for their crime. Because he was a nothlit, he was, unlike the other Taxxons, unable to acquire morphing ability and become a snake. What remained of his Taxxon body was transported to the Andalite home world for a quiet funeral.
