Animorphs is an English language Science fiction series of young adult books written by K Katherine Alice Applegate is the credited Author of the Animorphs, Remnants, Everworld, and several other book All of them were physically disabled in some form.
After their identities were exposed in #49 (they sustained injuries in a blood bank and realized that the Yeerks could simply identify who they really were), the Animorphs promptly evacuated their families and relocated to the free Hork-Bajir valley. In #50, they decided to recruit more kids onto the team so that the new kids could continue to resist the Yeerks if the original five were captured or killed. The Animorphs chose to recruit physically disabled kids because they figured that the Yeerks would be uninterested in infesting them and to expedite the recruiting process (instead of waiting three days to guarantee a clean person). They also believed that giving them morphing abilities would heal their physical disabilities.
In all, there were 17 new Animorphs, who were dubbed the Auxiliary Animorphs. The recruitment was done in three stages, initially taking three people on the first run and gradually turning more people into Animorphs. The first three (Colette, James, and Timmy/Tuan) acquired a pigeon morph. The other two sessions were done at night, sneaking around The Gardens to acquire various morphs. The Auxiliary Animorphs were only used in emergency situations when the original ones needed more assistance. Cassie remarked that they adapted easily to the acquiring process, having little trouble adjusting to and controlling the animals' natural instincts. Most likely this was because, being incapable of as much physical activity, they had developed sharper minds to balance.
However, when they were attempting to recruit kids from a school for the blind, Tom discovered them and seized the blue box.

An Auxiliary Animorph named Ray was instantly killed by Dracon fire during one battle. Most of the other Auxiliary Animorphs died in The Answer (#53) as they attempted to assist Sam Doubleday's distractionary ground force as the five original Animorphs invaded the Pool Ship. It is not known which, if any, survived the battle.
The idea of Auxiliary Animorphs was controversial within the Animorphs themselves. Ax mainly objected on the grounds that these kids were vecols (disabled) and thus useless when not in morph; however, the other Animorphs said that they needed anybody possible to fight and that the auxiliaries wouldn't be that much more helpless in midmorph than they themselves had been at times, and the fact that they were disabled meant there was a extremely low risk that they would be Yeerk hosts. Cassie's dad was appalled when he found out that they were using such children for war, but apparently did not tell the others, as nobody else stepped up to talk about it with Jake or the other Animorphs.
