Scholastic Paperbacks, January His name is Elfangor-Sirinial-Shamtul.
The one who gave five young humans the ability to morph into any animal they touch. This book is twice as long as andaljte usual Animorph book, so strap in for a long post folks! Similarly to how we first met his little brother Ax, we find Elfangor aboard an Andalite Dome ship, an aristh eager to prove himself.
When the Dome ship comes across a Skrit Thd raider ship, Elfangor and his fellow aristh, Arbron are tasked to board it, as they are small enough to navigate the cramped quarters. Aboard, they discover two human kids, a girl named Lauren and a boy who goes by his last name…Chapman. After rescuing the humans, Elfangor and Arbron are re-assigned to travel with disgraced War Prince Alloran, who long ago fought in the Hork Bajir wars, and return the two humans to Earth.
He is less a fan of Chapman who is just a jerk in every way and takes the time to drop this little nugget early in their relationships:.
On the way, Arbron uses science to somehow discover that another Skrit Na radar ship had escaped and was carrying a mythical and powerful machine, the Time Matrix. Desperate to recover it before it can be sold to the Yeerks, they change course for the Taxxon home world, a favorite buyer for the Skrit Na. Upon arrival, Elfangor, Arbron, and Alloron morph Taxxon to scout out the planet and locate the Time Matrix, chhronicles Loren and Chapman aboard the cnronicles ship.
Their plans fall apart, however, when they are separated by the chaos of a Taxxon feeding frenzy the Taxxon morphs has very strong instincts of constant, almost debilitating, hunger.
It is after escaping this mess that Taxxon! Elfangor is captured by a Sub-Visser Seven Hork Bajir Controller who immediately lays forth his plan to force Elfangor to demorph so he can be the first Yeerk with an Andalite body.
When he refuses, he is pushed out of the ship and only escapes by morphing an Andalite home hte bird. He happens to know of a world with a bunch of sentient beings who could be great Controllers. Yhe Taxxon, he stumbles upon Arbron, still in Taxxon morph as well. Together they locate the Skrit Na ship that holds the Time Matrix and bluff their way on claiming they tue there for repairs and are able to steal it. While flying away, Elfangor discovers that Arbron is stuck in Taxxon morph.
Arbron attempts to force Elfangor to kill him with a Dracon beam, but when Elfangor resists, the Dracon cuts a hole into the ship resulting in a crash landing.
He steals a Mustang the car was also scavenged from Earth by the Skrit Na ths, and races back to the space port.
On the way, he is captured by a hive of Taxxons where he finds Arbron. Turns out there are some Taxxons still resisting the Yeerks. It is all Elfangor can do to hold off Arbron from attacking the two humans when they find them.
Alloran shows up to save the day be taking Sub Visser Seven captive as leverage to get back on their own ship and leave. Arbron, however, refuses to come, saying that he has no life with Andalites anymore, and returns to the Taxxons.
The Andalite Chronicles
In space, Alloran forces the Sub Visser Seven to jump to his death from the ship and then orders Elfangor to destroy a cargo ship full of Yeerks in their transport pool. Elfangor refuses, saying it is dishonorable to kill helpless Yeerks. During their disagreement, Chapman attacks a distracted Alloran and knocks him out. Elfangor lands back at the wrecked Skrit Na ship to retrieve the Time Matrix.
Elfangor is able to stun Sub Visser Seven, leaving him behind, and flying adalite from the Taxxon world. He anadlite them to the location of the original Dome ship, hoping that the added forces will be enough to combat the Yeerks.
Elfangor is able to trick them into getting close enough for him to shoot the belly of the ship with his shredders, but they still get boarded. However, weakened, it tears free, leaving Elfangor, Loren, Chapman, and now Visser Thirty Two trapped in an airless ship. However, because there were three of them trying to control their destination, they end up on a strange plane of existence that is a patchwork of their three home worlds. Elfangor and Loren are able to find each other and figure out how to find the Time Matrix.
They meet up with Visser Thirty Two a few times and closely escape. After finding the Time Matrix to get close to it, they discover that time speeds up and they each age several years chroonicles quickly, Loren ends up around 18Elfangor tells Loren to take control and bring them to Earth.
Animorphs: The Andalite Chronicles
The two travel to Earth where Loren has made sure using timey-whimey magic that everyone accepts the fact that she is now They bury the Time Matrix, deciding it is too dangerous a weapon for any one xndalite to control.
Elfangor creates a human morph for himself by combining DNA and traps himself in that morph, taking on the name Al Fangor. He marries Loren and goes into computer science in college.
All is as well anvalite it can be until our friend the Ellimist shows up one day. He says that Elfangor is not where he should be and through various forms of manipulation convinces Elfangor tue he must return to the way things are supposed to be, leaving Earth and Loren whose memories will be wiped behind.
It is only after he agrees that he learns that Loren was pregnant with their son. Elfangor returns to the Andalite war and after saving a Dome ship from the now Visser Three instead of Thirty Two, he is tthe a hero and andlaite starts what will be a long and honored career as an Andalite Prince. The story ends with him landing on Earth, injured and hoping to find the Time Matrix again the beautiful forest chrknicles it was buried has now become an abandoned construction site.
He briefly meets his son, and gives him and the other kids the morphing power. He then dies at the hands of Visser Three, leaving a recording of his tale this book that is sent out into space. Elfangor is such a great character. There are clear similarities to Ax with his earnestness and desire to become a great hero of his people.
However, he also is more quick to trust the humans he encounters and bond with them. He also more quickly catches on to human humor and adopts it himself. The stakes get incredibly high for Elfangor through this story. He loses his close friend to Taxxon morph and then is indirectly animorpgs for the fact that Alloran gets taken over by to-be Animorhps Three.
By the end of the story, it is very understandable why he chooses to retreat to Earth. The entire book gives us so much great background information for a character cchronicles was only ever introduced so briefly back in book one. Even then, I felt like he made a huge impact as a character, beyond the obvious reasons he was necessary for the plot. But this just adds so much more to him. We see the history behind his choices.
Why he came to Earth when he was injured in the first place. Why that construction site. And why his fight with Zndalite Three felt personal. Loren is so great. There were many scenes where she saves the day, either by tricking those around her, or physically taking on beings much larger and stronger than she was.
The Great Animorphs Re-Read: “The Andalite Chronicles”
When the Dome ship is being attacked by the living asteroids, she is the one to figure out that they are attracted to energy patterns. While in Taxxon morph, Elfangor very bluntly discusses the horribleness of the all-consuming hunger that plagues the Taxxons. He even begins to understand why they might choose to become willing Controllers if it would result in more feeding of that hunger. In the end of the book, the Ellimist informs Elfangor that Arbron still lives back on the Taxxon home world in the free Taxxon hive.
This is either good news, or incredibly tragic as well. Basically, he was using andalitee weapons. This further dis-illusions Elfangor to the Andalite race, contributing to his decision to flee the war and hide the Time Matrix even from his own people. This also, obviously, adds even more depth to Visser Three. Chapman is the worst. I mean, I could pretty much leave it at that. At every single point in this book, he says and does terrible things.
And not just in little, average bullying ways. Loren and Elfangor run into Chapman back on Earth during the three years, and they find out that his memory has somehow been wiped of the chhronicles experience. We later learn from the Ellimist that Chapman is also important to the future.

From the very first moment we meet him, we all recognize our favorite villain. He was already in the business of collecting animals! Am super excited to see how this is revealed to him. He thus equates those with human happiness and has to be informed by a laughing Loren that no, cigarettes are bad for you and that picture had only been an ad for them.
The cannibalism of their own and the fact that they have pretty much zero self control over that is made very clear in the most gruesome qndalite. As a whole, this is the most romantic story of them all! We actually get an entire romantic arc with Loren and Elfangor meeting, falling in love, and getting married.
I remember this as one of my favorite Animorphs books as animirphs kid, and I think part of that has to do with this aspect of it. And here I had that! There were a few references in this book that went completely over my head the first time around! It made re-reading this book super fun this time, discovering them finally.
First of all, the Skrit Na creatures are essentially two species.
The Skrit are these cockroach-like mindless drones, but the Na are described as short creatures that walk on two legs, but have huge heads and huge eyes.
So, there you go! As a kid, I completely missed this, so it was super fun seeing it now as an adult! In one swoop, he loses everything. Alloran, who goes on to be trapped as Visser Three for years and years. One of the many bad ass moments from Loren, pretty chroniicles summing up how we all feel about Chapman:.
She fired the shredder and Abdalite jerked and went limp.
