Mortimer is the pet bird that belongs to Kelsey. He is always seen on top Kelsey's head. Kelsey has had many other pet budgerigars, as seen in the pet cemetery scene in the pilot episode. Mortimer is also called her 'trusty falcon' by Kelsey. Kelsey is Mortimer's owner and when Kelsey needs her trusty bird he know she can whistle to call him.

Physical Appearance

He is a Budgerigar, which is a species of parakeet. He is a male, because of the blue cere above his beak.


Mortimer is seen to be obedient to Kelsey, as seen in the first episode when Kelsey is teaching Mortimer to peck out the brains of her enemies, and Mortimer complied efficiently. And when Mortimer has to do something well, Kelsey gives him some bird seeds.
