"Ray was a kid born with severe birth defects. He'd acquired a leopard as his main morph. He loved the physical grace of the animal, a grace he'd never experienced in his human body."

Ray was a boy born with severe birth defects who was recruited to join the Auxiliary Animorphs.

Joining the War

"Slowly our team formed a line. Grizzly. Gorilla. Tiger. Andalite. Hawk. Wolf. Then James's team. Lion. Crocodile. Bobcat. Bull. Then Craig's team. And Erica's. Slowly the visser's attention was caught. Maybe I imagined the look of fear that flitted across his enigmatic Andalite face as he surveyed our forces. Maybe not. But for the first time since this war had begun, it looked like a fair fight."

When the Animorphs began looking for new members, was one of the recruits selected by James. Ray was born with severe birth defects and likely spent most of his life in the children's hospital. He was not one of the few healed by the morphing process.


"How are they taking it, James's people?"
"About like we were taking your death, Jake: not well. At least it was quick: Dracon beam. He never knew what hit him."
Jake and Marco[src]

Ray was the first Auxiliary Animorphs casualty. He died during an attack the Animorphs staged upon the new Yeerk pool. Three of of Toby Hamee's people also died in the attack.[3]
