Tobias Morphing Ability Question

Post by kellyale1804 » Fri Apr 29, 2016 5:08 pm

Hi! I am a huge fan of Animorphs, and not until now did I find this forum, and I have a MASSIVE question about Tobias Morphing Ability
It is informed from the whole series that if Tobias in his human-morph for more than 2 hours, he is going to be a nothlit again and lose his morphing ability
But the Animorphs have the Escafil Device ('blue morphing cube'). Why didn't they make him morph-able again?
Ps: I know there are reasons for him not coming back to his human form, but I just wonder this :)
THANK U FOR READING xoxo

The Escafil Device can't give the morphing power to a nothlit. The why of it is never explained, but it just doesn't work that way. Tobias trapping himself in his human morph wouldn't change the fact that he was a nothlit.

I you could get the morphing ability back after you became a nothlit things would be so much easier. Like, you wouldn't have to worry about being trapped in morph.

Reply to the post above: As great a that is if you could regain the ability after being trapped there's still the worry that you could never get your old body back unless the Ellimist helps you or you go through some sort of serio rip to the past.
