Biography[edit | edit source]

Andalite-Yeerk War on Earth[edit | edit source]

"Chapman was one of the worst sort of Yeerks. Eager for glory. Expert at toadying to powerful superiors. But unwilling to dirty his own hands if he could find someone else to perform the less appealing tasks of invasion. Chapman was a coward."

Iniss 226 was a Yeerk who served as a lieutenant of sort to Esplin 9466 during the Yeerk invasion of Earth. His host body was Hedrick Chapman.

Chapman worked as the assistant/vice principal at the Animorphs' school. At an unknown point, Chapman and his wife were infested by Yeerks and made Controllers. Both agreed to this infestation voluntarily on the condition that their daughter not be harmed.[1]

Chapman a high-ranking Yeerk (albeit not even a Sub-Visser) who is often placed in charge of important Yeerk projects on Earth. The Animorphs often used him to discover new Yeerk pool locations and gather intelligence.

Just prior to the final battle with the Yeerks, the Animorphs kidnap Chapman and hold him hostage with the threat of harm to coarse Erek King into helping infiltrate the Yeerks' Pool ship.[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]
