Elena was a young blind girl and the only Auxiliary Animorphs recruited from the school for the blind.


The Auxiliary Animorphs

After the Animorphs had recruited seventeen new members from the children's hospital, they decided to next target a school for the blind. After about fifteen minutes of surveillance all six Animorphs went in, and after entering accidentally wake up a young redhead girl.[1]

While the others stood guard, Jake and Rachel explained to Elena why they had come, about morphing and about the Yeerk invasion. They gain her the ability to morph with the Morphing Cube, and she accidentally acquired Rachel.[2] Unfortunately, the dormitory they was surveillance by close circuit camera, and Tom accompanied by several Hork-Bajir-Controllers burst in and apprehended all the Animorphs, except Cassie in fly morph.[3] Cassie was able to alter James and the other Auxiliary Animorphs who came to their aid.[4]

Luckily, Elena was able to exit in the school in Rachel morph before the Yeerks could return to capture her.[5] Unable to return to the school, Elena was then found by the Animorphs and relocated to the Hork-Bajir valley.

Elena most likely joined the other Auxiliary Animorphs in the final battle against the Yeerks' Pool ship, and probably died with them. They had sacrificed their lives to assist Sam Doubleday's ground force as the original Animorphs invaded the Pool ship. Jake heard Visser One gleefully order the Pool ship's gunners to kill any animals in the fight below, until the gunners report none are left.[6]
