Tobias

Tobias acquiring his past self.

"Human DNA flows in my veins. My own human DNA, thanks to some neat work by the vastly powerful creature called the Ellimist. [...] And by twisting time itself, he brought me face-to-face with my old self and let me acquire my "own" DNA. I could be my old human self. I could be that human boy for two hours and keep my morphing powers. Or I could remain more than two hours, be my old self forever, and forever lose my morphing ability."
Tobias[src]

Tobias' Human Morph is his thirteen year old human form and his most used morph. Months after being trapped as a red-tailed hawk, the Ellimist sent Tobias back in time so that he could acquire his past self. As morphs do not age, this form is perpetually thirteen, much like Ax's human morph.

Acquiring

"The human Tobias held out his arm. I flapped my wings and landed on him. I was as gentle as I could be with my talons. I didn't need to dig them in. Simple contact was enough. Tobias's eyes began to flutter. He became dazed and passive. The way all animals do when they are acquired. I closed my eyes and focused on him. On the human DNA that was being absorbed into my hawk's body."
Tobias[src]

In The Change, set in 1997, the Ellimist sends Tobias back in time to the night before he walked through the abandoned construction site. Tobias speaks to his human self and acquires him, granting him the ability to become human for two hours at a time. The Ellimist then transports Tobias back to the present.[1]

Usage

"My old self. My human self. For two hours at a time I can morph Tobias the kid. Be human, at least physically. Then I must return to hawk or I'll lose my morphing capability altogether."
Tobias[src]

After being returned to his own time, Tobias morphed into his human form in order to attend Rachel's Packard Foundation Award ceremony. The morph became Tobias' most used morph, a form he would adopt often when hanging out with the other Animorphs at the mall. He also used the morph occasionally during his dates with Rachel. Upon witnessing Rachel's final moments, Tobias morphed into human.
