|Behind the scenes|
The mention of "Father Banion" at the end of The Unknown (as part of Cassie's parents embarassing her about Jake) implies that the family is Catholic.
After the Yeerks discovered that Animorphs were in fact humans and not Andalite bandits, the Animorphs had to evacuate their families. Michelle and Walter were the first to be told about the war and relocated to the Hork-Bajir valley. She and Walter were both extremely interested in studying the Ax's and the Hork-Bajirs' physiology.
- On the Animorphs television series, Michelle is named Aisha.
- She is also called "Aisha" in earlier promotional materials such as Cassie's ID card and the Animorphs Alliance fan club secret handbook.
- She is only called by the name "Michelle" in books 50 and 52. This possibly explains the discrepancy between the book, and the tv show and promotional materials.
- In The Diversion Cassie tells Michelle to stop playing with Ax`s butt.
