"Tobias ask the Hork-Bajir. Hork-Bajir give. Always. Forever. Anything. Even life. Jara Hamee never forget."
―Jara Hamee to Tobias[src]

Jara Hamee was the first Hork-Bajir to be permanently freed from Yeerk control, and was the husband of Ket Halpak and the father of Toby Hamee. He was freed in 1997 by Tobias and became a founding member of Earth's free Hork-Bajir colony. Three years later, Jara joined the final battle of the Andalite-Human-Yeerk War, where he was killed in battle.


Early Life[]

"He was the first of the free Hork-Bajir. He was the father of his people. And he was my father."
Toby Hamee[src]
This section requires expansion

Jara Hamee is the only known child of Seerow Hamee, and is also the grandson of Dak Hamee and Aldrea-Iskillion-Falan. After being brought to Earth, Jara Hamee married Ket Halpak, and they were the first two Hork-Bajir to escape Yeerk captivity. The pair later had a daughter named Toby Hamee and a son. Jara died in the final battle against the Yeerks.[2]

Acquired by the Animorphs[]

Jara Hamee was the template for the Hork-Bajir morph possessed by three of the six Animorphs. In 1997, Jara Hamee was acquired by Rachel. About a year or so later, Jara was acquired by Ax. In 1999, Jara was acquired by Cassie, serving as the first of her two Hork-Bajir morphs. As a result, those three Animorphs have slightly different Jara morphs since they acquired him at different ages.


  • His name is a play on the phonetics of "Jeremy" as briefly mentioned by Jake.[3]
