Julio was a young man recruited to be one of the Auxiliary Animorphs.


The Auxiliary Animorphs

When the Animorphs began looking for new members, Julio was one of the recruits selected by James.[1] Very little is known about Julio. His disease, condition or reason for being in the children's hospital is unknown, but he was not healed by the morphing process.

Despite Rachel's jealousy, Julio chose to acquire a grizzly bear as his battle morph.[2]

Julio and most, if not all, of the Auxiliary Animorphs died in the final battle against the Yeerks' Pool ship. 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.[3]
