The Beginning


Frank Pellegrino

"I'll set the fuses and the timers. I'm an engineer. Explosives weren't my specialty back before this war but you learn what you have to."
―Peter to Captain Olston[src]

Peter is Marco's father and an engineer. Peter married Eva several years before she became the host to Visser One. After Visser One faked Eva's death on a boating accident. Believing that his wife was truly dead, Peter lived as a single parent for some time, but eventually started dating. Peter eventually married Nora Robbinette, not knowing Eva was still alive.


Early LifeEdit

To be added


"I used to think nothing could ever destroy him. But my mom's death had. He used to be an engineer. A scientist, really. He's incredibly smart. We had a nice house. We had a nice car. I used to live practically next door to Jake. I know all that stuff isn't important. I know having things isn't what life is about. But it was still hard when my dad just stopped going to work. Jerry, his boss, tried to be nice. He gave him a couple of weeks to deal with losing Mom. But a couple of weeks was not enough. My dad's a janitor now. Part-time. He gets jobs with a temporary service. He unpacks boxes at department stores. That kind of thing. But I don't care what kind of job he has. That doesn't matter. What matters is that when I lost my mom, I lost my dad, too."

Back to WorkEdit

"I haven't been a very good father to you. Your mom... Your mom would not be happy about the way I've been these last two years. Anyway. I talked to Jerry the other day. I guess we have to live, huh? I mean, we can't... you know. Your mom wouldn't want us to give up, would she? Anyway, I'm going in Monday to talk to Jerry about getting back to work. You know ... see if I still remember how to even turn on a computer."
―Peter to Marco[src]

Matcom InvolvementEdit

"Dad, are you thinking about taking on a military project now?"
"There are some very exciting things going on with this Matcom. The thing they want me on isn't military in any way. But... well, they do carry on some very secret work. I guess some of what they do is probably military."
Marco and Peter[src]

Marrying Nora RobbinetteEdit

"My dad has a girlfriend. And I think it's serious. I'm used to this quiet, low-key, unexpressive guy. But ever since he started dating this woman, he's been Mr. Personality. Smiling for no reason. Singing in the shower. Laughing at all my lame jokes like I was Chris Rock. He's even developed this annoying habit of hugging me for no good reason. I mean, I'm happy for him. Really. When my mom disappeared over two years ago, my dad lost it. For a long time, he was little more than a zombie. Sometimes I thought he'd never recover. A few months back he pulled himself out of it. Things went back to normal. Or as normal as my life could be – until he met this woman."

Andalite-Yeerk WarEdit

Discovering Z-SpaceEdit

"What are you calling your discovery?"
"I don't really know. What can you call something that is nothing at all? What could you call it? Zero, I suppose. Zero-space."
Nora Robbinette and Peter[src]

Meeting the AnimorphsEdit

"Dad, of course you're my father. I love you. I respect you. But I've been fighting this war for a long time. I've been on more missions, in more fights, and seen more terrible things than you can imagine. This is my fight. My war. Me and my friends, we know what's going on. You don't."

When the Yeerks heard about Peter's development of Z-space transmissions, they did their best to infest him. It was because of this event that the Animorphs had to reveal themselves to him. The Chee helped stage both Marco and Peter's deaths, and they were relocated to the Hork-Bajir valley.[1]

Reunited with EvaEdit

"A waving hand caught my eye. Down the slope, near a group of Hork-Bajir flashing blades in welcome, was one smiling human. Dad. I didn't say anything. Neither did my mother. She just took off down the slope like a woman who hadn't seen her husband in months and months and months.... It was a movie cliche. It was lovers reunited. It was the dream I'd had ever since I knew my mother was alive. Dad opened his arms and she tumbled into them. They embraced. They held each other for a long, long time. Everything I'd worked for was right before my eyes."

Not long after this, Peter was reunited with a free Eva. They both lived in the Hork-Bajir valley until the end of the war and aided the Animorphs on occasion.[2]
