Timmy was a young man confined to a wheelchair with cerebral palsy recruited to be one of the first four Auxiliary Animorphs.


The Auxiliary AnimorphsEdit

When the Animorphs began looking for new members, they met first met Timmy, Collette and Kelly. 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 convinced, 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, Timmy was not healed by the morphing process.[3]

During the Auxiliary Animorphs first battle, Timmy used his bobcat morph.[4] He quickly gained a mastery of this morph's agility and strength, and helped tag team some Hork-Bajir-Controllers with Collette in crocodile morph. Timmy was also able to wrestle the Morphing Cube from Tom.[5]

Timmy 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]
