Mentally and Physically: Ax (full name: Aximili-Esgarrouth-Isthill) is a typical Andalite. He is brilliant by human standards, and is often a slight bit condescending towards humans and their "backwards technology". However, he believes humans make excellent foods (Cinnabons, cigarette butts, motor oil, paper plates, taco sauce, and Cassie's dad's 5-alarm chili). Ax is the Animorph's resident alien and computer expert. As all Andalites, he despises the Yeerks, and he was even ready to kill himself after he was saved by one. Ax's appearence is a little strange by most earth standards. He has the a deer-like body covered in blue and tan fur. His torso is humanoid with two arms and two many-fingered hands. He has no mouth, and 4 eyes: two stalk eyes and two eyes in the normal place for eyes. He looks gentle until you notice his long, scorpion-like tail. Because he has no mouth normally, he feeds through his hooves, and when he becomes human, he is amazed by the sence of taste and by "mouth sounds." Ax has no sense of humor, though, he seems as he may be developing one.
Family: Ax is the son of Noorlin-Sirinial-Cooraf and Forlay-Esgarrouth-Maheen. He has one older brother, Prince Elfangor-Sirinial-Shamtul. On the homeworld his family builds heat-transfer components for space craft. His nephew is Tobias.
As an Animorph: Ax was found by Cassie and Tobias through dreams at the bottom of the ocean in The Message. Because Ax is only a cadet, he chose Jake as his prince, even though Jake isn't too endearing to the title "Prince."
