Mortimer Toynbee is a animorph that goes by the alias Toad.


Mortimer was raised in an orphanage where he was teased because of his ugliness and strangeness. This taunting traumatized him and caused him to develop learning disabilities. He also developed a pathetically subservient personality which would make him obey anyone that he thought sincerely cared about him.
