Kelly was a young girl with cystic fibrosis recruited to be one of the first four Auxiliary Animorphs.


The Auxiliary Animorphs

When the Animorphs began looking for new members, they met first met Kelly, Collette and Timmy. After a rude reception, Collette was the first to open up to Jake, Cassie and Marco.[1]

After Marco, Cassie and Jake explained everything about the Yeerk invasion of Earth to James, they attempted to convince him by morphing. After James was convince, Timmy, Kelly and Collette were brought in as the first four Auxiliary Animorphs. Timmy and Kelly insisted on the others demonstrating several morphs.[2] They all morphed pigeons and traveled together to The Gardens to acquire battle morphs. Unfortunately, Kelly was not healed by the morphing process.[3]

During the Auxiliary Animorphs first battle, Kelly tried out her bull morph.[4] She easily took out several Hork-Bajir-Controllers and a couple of Taxxons before being hit in the shoulder by a Dracon beam shot by Tom. The wound was deep and near fatal, but with help from Cassie and Marco, Kelly was able to demorph while everyone else was distracted with the melee between Jake and Visser One. Marco while in gorilla morph got her to safety, and she survived.[5]

Kelly 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.[6]
