Hi, my name is Elaina. I can't tell you my last name, or where I'm from. But I will tell you this. I am not normal. See, my family is known as the Animorphs.
What's an Animorph, you say? Well, an Animorph can change into any animal at will.
But there are rules. First rule is, you have to aquire the animal that you want. Aquiring is kind of wierd. You touch the animal and concentrate on it. The animal goes into this kind of trance. And that's how you aquire it's DNA.
The second rule is a biggie. You can not, under any circumstances, stay in morph for two hours or more. Our friend Tobias learned that the hard way. For the longest time, he was stuck as a red-tailed falcon because of that.
Sorry. I'm getting ahead of myself here. See, my family got their powers from these dudes called the Andelites. Well, one specifically. He was Prince Elfangor. And he was dying. There's this war going on. Right here on Earth. It wasn't our battle. We shouldn't have gotten involved.
It was between the Yeerks and the Andelites. The Yeerks are basically these grey mind-controlling slugs. They take over your mind and become a Controller. Controllers are either willing, or unwilling. Most of them are unwilling. One of them was my dad.
My dad's name is Jake. Mom's name is Cassie. Their friends always joked about them being together. I may not be able to tell you much about us, but I can tell you their personalities.
First there's Dad. He's the leader of the Animorphs. He's serious most of the time. I think I inherited that from him. But we also know how to have fun. He can be a real joker when he needs to be. But when trouble strikes, he goes onto all powerfull leader mode.
Then theres' mom. She is one of the best morphers on the team. Aside from me of course. I think that's because both my parents are Animorphs.
Her parents are both Vets. Her dad owns a veterinary clinic for Wildlife. Which means they don't take house pets. Her mom is the head nurse in this place called the Gardens. Really cool place, by the way. That means she has access to all sorts of cool animals.
Now for Marco. He's the jokester. Even in a near death situation, he always has a joke for everything. He was also the least willing to be a part of the Animorphs. Even though he was the one who came up with the name.
Then it's Rachel. She's the adventurous one of the group. If you just glance at her, you would swear she was this dumb blonde destined to be a super-model. But she's not. She's this awesome warrior princess. That's according to Marco. He jokingly calls her Xena: Warrior Princess.Anyway, Her and Marco have a child. Her name's Katie. She's two years older than I am.
Now for my favorite people. The first one is Tobias. He's awesome. Like I said. He was stuck as a red-tailed falcon for the longest time. And he's the team's eyes in the sky. He is a very important asset to the team. Despite what he says. And he always gives great advice.
Now there's Ax. His real name is Aximilli-Esgarrouth-Isthil. See why we just call him Ax? He's an Andelite. Pretty awesome if you ask me. I'll get into what he looks like later. Because Dad is the leader. Ax calls him "Prince Jake". It's hillarious. Especially when Dad tells him not to call him "Prince".
Right now, I need to tell you what's going on in my life. Because things have gone from bad to worse in a mater of hours. And I soon found out Reality, isn't really realtiy.
So, what do you think of this chapter? I know it's a cross-over, but I'll get to that in a moment. If I get five reviews on this thing, i'll work on another chapter faster. See you then. :)
