"I know I'm just your little sister by two years, but you would tell me if something bad was happening to you, right? I mean, I wouldn't tell Mom or anyone. You could trust me."
―Jordan to Rachel[src]

Jordan is Rachel's sister and the middle child of Naomi and Dan.


Family Life[]

Jordan was born in 1986[2] to Naomi, a lawyer, and Dan, a news reporter and investigative journalist.[4] She lived in the suburbs of California[5] with her older sister Rachel, who was born two years prior, and a younger sister named Sara. By the 1990s, her parents divorced, and Jordan lived with her mother and sisters.[1] In 1997,[6] Jordan sat in the family room of her house with Sara and watched scary shows, with her mother remarking that Jordan would be sleeping with a night-light. Not too long after, Jordan was awakened in the middle of the night when she heard Rachel yelling about maggots before she started screaming. Realizing Rachel was having a nightmare, Jordan rushed to her sister's room and woke her up. She then followed Rachel into the bathroom, where Rachel threw up in the toilet. Worried, Jordan considered waking up their mother, although Rachel told her not to and assured her she was just having a bad dream. While Jordan was relieved that it was just a dream, she was confused that Rachel claimed she could not remember the details of the dream despite it being bad enough to cause her to scream and vomit. Feeling sad, Jordan told Rachel that if something bad was happening, she could talk about it with her and that she wouldn't tell their mother. Jordan was then hugged by Rachel, who replied that she knew Jordan could be trusted but that there was nothing bad going on with her.[1]

Andalite-Yeerk War[]

After the Yeerks discovered the Animorphs' identities, the Animorphs had to evacuate their families. Right before Rachel breaks the news of being an Animorphs to her mother, she gets Ax to distract the Sara and Jordan. They call Ax "Pokey-Man" and request to train him while he is in Andalite form.[7]



  • Jordan has a small crush on Marco.
  • In The Visitor, Rachel describes Jordan as having dark hair and eyes like their mother. It is later revealed that Naomi has brown hair and eyes, which Jordan and Sara received, while Rachel inherited their father's blond hair and blue eyes. In the graphic novel, however, Jordan is shown with blonde hair like Rachel.

  6. This transpires in #2: The Visitor, which is set less than two weeks after #1: The Invasion. The Andalite Chronicles is said to take place 10 years after the 1966 Yeerk exodus of The Hork-Bajir Chronicles and 21 years before Elfangor met the Animorphs. This places it in 1976, meaning the Animorphs met Elfangor in 1997.
