Mortimor Pokoly is Kelsey's pet budgerigar. Kelsey has previously owned dozens of birds also named Mortimor that are now deceased, but she proclaims her current Mortimor her favorite. He is voiced by Noël Wells, who also voices Kelsey.

Physical appearance

Mortimor's yellow and green feathers cover nearly his entire body, leaving only his bright orange beak and feet, light blue cere, and black eyes visible. Though he appears round, most of the volume is in his feathers, making him very light.

Personality

Mortimor cares deeply about Kelsey. He tries to protect her from what he sees as threats, such as the cicada that gets trapped with him and the Stump Kids. He empathizes with her easily, sometimes accidentally exposing her true feelings against her will. He is surprisingly intelligent, seemingly understanding when others are making fun of him or Kelsey. Though he is attached to Kelsey, he is understanding when she has to leave him behind. He is sometimes intimidated by her, such as when she mentions her past Mortimors.
