Animorphs Races: Yeerk by Monster-Man-08 Animorphs Races: Yeerk by Monster-Man-08
Now for the rest of the aliens in the Animorphs series. First up, one of my favorites, the Yeerks!

The six-inch grey-green slug-like Yeerks are able to completely control nearly any creature by crawling into it's skull and 'melting' into their brain! It's a bit of a necessary evil, since 'natural' Yeerks are deaf and blind, despite being fully sentient.

Unfortunately, by the end of the series, the Yeerks are effectively extinct, forced to morph *something* and stay in that morph (Taxxons also must do this; drat, my other favorite).

Despite only being spacebound for only 30 years, a group of Yeerks had 'evolved' into the Iskoort.

The wiki descript of the series turned me off it. I still don't know what gave an animorph his or her power or what they can become and whether they have a choice.

 

Also the Yeerk are monstrous and horrific.

Wiki descripts are often pretty awful, especially those for works of fiction *not* at the type of fame of, say, Star Wars or Harry Potter or whatever. I'd recommend reading at least one of the books before completely writing it off.

And yes, the Yeerks are a despicable race, which is why I love them so much!

Well, I wrote some of the wiki data, that which I was knowledgable on. But sometimes some wisenheimer erased it. I do not know why, as I was as objective as I could be, striking a careful balance between being thorough and being not pedantic.

Anyone can explain how can the Yeerk enter the human brain through their eardrum? How can they do that when the eardrum completely seal off the inner ear from the outer ear?

My guess is they breack the eardrum then repair it or something

I remember practically consuming these books as they came out when I was young and even watching the short lived live action show. Never finished the series though, just out grew it I guess.

I don't see why some Yeerks who mutually had a friendship with their hosts wouldn't be allowed to stay. Peacefull, willing coexistance between Yeerks and (human) hosts could have happened, especially for former members of the Peace Movement and people who wanted company. They could share control, or the Yeerk would give all control while the host graciously donated their senses for the Yeerk to use.

And I strengthened these ideas with a fan fiction called "The Perspective", by Arin. [link]

no, the iskoort are not related to the yeerks. the yeerks are similar in a way, but the iskoort had no idea what a 'yeerk' was.

you have too admit that the forced morph extinction of the race, is the kindest way to end the yeerk, les blood spiling, and giving them a secound chance!

but what about the yeerks who where whit The One?

Forced morph extinction certainly is a humane way to end the war (it did basically give them everything they fought the war for), I just like the idea of brain-controlling aliens and am a bit surprised the Iskoort idea was abandoned.
