Max is also looking for her mother who mysteriously disappears from the safe house. A mysterious creature mutant appears near the sub so Angel unexpectedly dives out to have a chat with it. It ends up helping the gang. During this mission, Max, Fang, and the others discover many other abilities, like breathing under water.
The Flock travels to Africa where they meet Dr. Hans Gunther-Hagen, a former Itex worker, and Dylan, another human-avian hybrid designed to be Max's "perfect other half". Dylan joins the Flock, although they are all wary of his motive. Max and Fang are kicked out of the group by Angel who has decided that they are too focused on their personal relationship than the evils they should be fighting. Fang is taken by Dr. Hans and experimented on, he dies for a moment before Max revives him back to life. After getting back to their home, Fang decides to permanently leave the group and start his own Flock.
They are all heart-broken. Max finds out about an organization known as the Doomsday Group is brainwashing people and makes an interest in going to stop this group. Meanwhile, Fang starts his own gang which includes Max's clone, now called Maya. The two teams join forces in Paris, although they don't exactly get along, but they must stop the Doomsday group from killing themselves and hurting others. They devise a plan, but everything goes awry when Gazzy fails to disarm all the bombs under the gathering spot, and the bombs explode while Fang, Gazzy, and Angel are still in the blast radius.
Fang and Gazzy make it out safely, but Angel is missing, leaving everyone heartbroken. Angel's epilogue reveals that she is still alive, though her whereabouts remain a mystery. The story begins when Max and the remaining members of the flock have to go to an ordinary school. Though Max is unhappy about it, she just cannot say no to Dylan. Meanwhile, Fang's gang is caught up when they're attacked by two convoy trucks and some of them are seriously injured and Maya is killed.
Fang leaves the rest of his "gang" and tells them to move on with their lives, and he goes back to Max with his original Flock. Dylan at this time is under an influence to kill Fang in order to save Max, and the apocalypse is near. He is unable to kill Fang, and the Flock is led by Dr. Martinez to a paradise where they will be safe from the apocalypse and Angel is there to greet them. The apocolypse has taken the form as a virus and various natural disaster, and the Flock is trying to survive.

She plays the part of a mother or "mamma bird" in this case. She has peachy skin and eyes "the color of non-barfed chocolate", according to Angel. Max is 5'8" and weighs 97 pounds, as described in The Final Warning. Her wings are light tan, with brown spots, and cream and brown streaks. Max's powers are to fly up to mph, she is the strongest of the flock.
She has great leadership abilities, is a master fighter, has a voice inside her head that tells her what to do most of the time, and she develops gills at the end of MAX. Later, the Flock meets Dylan , who, according to Dr. Hans Gunther-Hagen, is Max's "perfect other half".
Max teaches Dylan how to fly and fight. She also notices a slight jealousy from Fang. Max begins to feel an attraction for Dylan when Fang leaves. Max is one of the two members of the Flock who found her parents; Iggy is the other. However, she is the only one to like her parents, as Iggy leaving his after only a week or so they wanted to put him in a freak sideshow. She is stunned when she learned that Jeb Batchelder a "whitecoat" who helped them escape from the school and then raised them and then suddenly left was her father.
Valencia Martinez is her biological mother. Max trusts Dr. Martinez completely, but remains wary of Jeb. She is also close to her half-sister, Dr.
Martinez's daughter Ella, who Max first meets when trying to save her from some bullies in the first book. Max dislikes Ari Her half-brother and Jeb's son until she learns that they're related, with whom she is constantly fighting, but then he joins her "mini-flock" that was created in Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports for a short he dies trying to help.
Fang is 14 years old 15 in the last three books. He is second-in-command of the Flock and Max's best friend later her boyfriend. He is only four months younger than Max. Fang is able to virtually disappear by staying very still and quiet.
He is somewhat stronger than the rest of the flock, often sustaining near-fatal wounds, as in books one and two. Fang almost always wears dark clothing and always seems to be sneaking up on Max. He has a fourteen-foot wingspan. In The Angel Experiment , he found out that the School took him after he was born. When his mother had him the doctors told her that he had died.
Fang decided that he didn't want to find his mother, she wasn't much older than his own age when she had him. He is somewhat reserved, but cares deeply about the Flock. He is usually very silent, and seems quite mysterious, always hiding his feelings. He runs a blog about the Flock's adventures that proves useful in several books, such as in School's Out—Forever. He and Max fight about this, but afterwards they make up. Brigid Dwyer, who worked with the Flock in their mission to Antarctica, and Max becomes jealous resulting in tension between the two.
He later comes back, reuniting at the end of an epic battle made up of an army of his blog's followers, in which Ari "expires". Fang leaves the Flock again at the end of Fang because of Dylan, Max's "perfect other half", and because Angel has predicted that Fang would be the first to die; therefore, because he knows that by dying, he would put the others in danger, he leaves.
Everyone is upset by this, especially Max, but she finds a letter later that he wrote to her saying that if in 20 years, the world hasn't come to an end, he'll meet her on the cliff where they learned to fly like the hawks. When he realizes he cannot stop the Doomsday Group on his own, he enlists the help of Max's Flock. Max and Fang seem to grow apart and start to like different people. Also, Fang starts having feelings for Maya, trying to replace Max. However, he then realizes that Maya is different from Max, and begins to treat her differently, although in his heart, he still loves Max.
After the planned D-day, Fang leaves with his flock, leaving Max and her flock in the rubble of Paris, searching for Angel who is missing. In "Nevermore", Fang hears the 'Voice' and comes back for Max, after breaking one of his wings. He and Max grow back together after he comes back and abandons his 'Gang'. It takes some time, but eventually they love each other again. Fang manages to kill several erasers and see Dylan kill Ari.
It is after that, when Dylan attempts to kill Fang, Max really realizes that she wants to be with Fang for the rest of her life. When Doctor Martinez Max's mother takes them and the Flock to a paradise island, he and Max resume their previous relationship. When he and Max escape to a perfect perch, he tells her that he loves her for the first time, just before they are hit by a tsunami. When they are both rescued, Max tells Fang that she loves him as well.
Fang dies in "Maximum Ride Forever", but he is revived when Dylan sacrifices himself for him to live and Max to be happy. Fang and Max then have a baby girl named Phoenix. Iggy is 14 years old, six months younger than Max 15 in the last three books , and third-in-command of the Flock. He is usually sarcastic, 6'0", has extremely pale skin, whitish-strawberry blonde hair, very light icy blue eyes, and a wingspan of 14 feet. Iggy is described as very handsome, especially because of his "unseeing, yet captivating, eyes".
He is one of the only two flock members to have met his parents, the other being Max. His real name is revealed to be James Griffiths. When he found his parents, he learned that he was kidnapped by the School when he was about 4 months old. At first, Iggy decides to leave the Flock to live with his parents, but later leaves when he learns that his parents didn't want to have him back and only wanted to use him to make money off his story.
Due to the whitecoats' experiments to enhance his night vision, Iggy is effectively blind, though he can see if his surroundings are white and can identify people by feeling their fingerprints and the feel of their wings. He can also feel colors. Despite his blindness, the Flock often leave things up to him that require precision or detail, such as cooking and doctoring. His senses are also the best of the flock due to his blindness, although he occasionally suffers resentment of his blindness and the resulting dependency of the Flock it creates.
He and The Gasman are best friends and have a habit of building bombs out of almost anything and blowing things up, including alarm clocks. Iggy and Ella, Max's half sister, also showed signs of growing affection towards one another in Angel , which ultimately culminated in a shared kiss in Nevermore. Nudge is 11 years old 12 in Fang , Angel , and Nevermore , has brown skin, and has wild, curly, long, dark brown hair.
Described as Max's best supporter and the peacemaker, she likes Max over Fang and can't live without her. Her wings are often said to be tawny-brown, almost cream. Her real name is revealed to be Monique , and she managed to track down who she believes to be her mother because of the resemblance in skin tone, but never meets her because she is attacked by Ari.
She is a "motormouth" as said by Max several times in the books. The Flock calls her the Nudge Channel because when she's awake it's "all Nudge, all the time. Nudge can hack into computers with her ability to sense leftover emotions, also called psychometric, and she can draw metal towards her by will, like a magnet. Of the flock, Nudge is the one who most longs for the normality of the lives of other kids their age; in MAX , when Jeb offers the Flock to stay at a day and night school, Nudge wants to stay and get her wings cut off.
He is Angel's biological older brother, and they are the only blood related siblings of the Flock. He has a mischievous nature and makes fun of Max sometimes. He and Iggy are experts at constructing and setting off bombs and explosives, as Max states, "You could lock the Gasman in a padded cell with some dental floss and a bowl of Jell-O, and he'd find a way to make something explode. The Gasman's most useful ability is to perfectly mimic any voice.
Max and Fang find a picture of baby Gazzy when they go check out what they think was Gazzy and Angel's old residence; the Flock sees the picture many times accidentally and sometimes purposefully throughout the series. He is called The Gasman because he passes gas a great deal, owing to a problem with his digestive system.

Additionally, he later develops a "skill": he can produce large "mushroom-shaped" clouds of gas which stink horrendously. Angel is 6 years old 7 in Max , Fang , Angel , and Nevermore , with blue eyes and curly blonde hair. Angel is also the biological sister of The Gasman Gazzy. She obtains seemingly random powers at random times, but her most eminent power, lasting throughout the series, is the ability to read and control minds.
In The Angel Experiment , she uses her powers to convince a woman to buy her an expensive teddy bear that she names Celeste. She acquires the ability to hold her breath underwater and swim in deep water at pressures that would crush a normal human as well as change her appearance into a 'bird of paradise' form and change her skin and eye color; however, after the initial introduction, this power is never mentioned again, except when she gets trapped under a snow pile in The Final Warning , but the attempt was unsuccessful.
She is usually mistaken to be powerless and innocent, but she is truly extremely intelligent and dangerous. Her ability to control people's minds gives her extreme power. In Fang , Angel believes that she is the strongest of the Flock, and holds a vote, temporarily kicking Max out of the group. She also has a 'Voice' in her head, like Max, but the Flock is unaware of this. Angel is portrayed as calculating, ruthless, and unstable in Fang , and has pointed a gun at Max to make enemies back off.
In Angel , she seems to have calmed some of the extreme changes of her personality that occurred in Fang , and helps Max to balance her feelings for Fang and Dylan. She appears to be content with her role and no longer bids for power, but advises Max, who is still suspicious of her.
In the end, she volunteers to go undercover in a new evil organization The Doomsday Group. She goes missing after she and Gazzy fail to defuse a bomb, and the others think she is dead. In fact, she is being held captive in an unknown location, and is continually told she is "most superior". In Nevermore , Angel is captured by The School again. After many tests, they show Angel a video. Angel starts to cry as she realizes the video is of Iggy's operation that has left him permanently blind.
She watches the scientists prod and cut open Iggy's eyes until a whitecoat tells her they will be performing the same operation on her. After the operation, Angel loses her sight temporarily and nearly dies in a fire until Max and the Flock come to save her. When they escape to a 'tropical paradise', the world is being destroyed and she admits to Max she is the Voice, and she has been for years.
In Maximum Ride Forever , Angel, at first distrusted by Max but eventually called her "little prophet", leads an army of survivors and mutants against the Remedy after being shown visions on the apocalypse the Remedy caused. Dylan is an avian-human hybrid who joins the Flock in Fang. He is said to be Max's "perfect other half", causing Max to refer to him as "Mr. Perfect", although Max and Fang are quite in love when they meet. He is six foot two inches tall with a foot wingspan and chocolate colored wings, and is usually described as handsome, with dark-blond hair and turquoise eyes, and is said to have a beautiful singing voice.
He is in love with Max, but he was programmed by the scientists to feel that way. Because of this, he and Fang do not see eye-to-eye until the end of Nevermore. He was also made in a lab, created from a clone of a boy who had died in a car accident in the country of Canada.
He is 8 months old in Fang. He learns how to fly when Max teaches him by pushing him off a roof. His relationship with Max is complicated, but she does eventually start to like him. In Fang he is portrayed as somewhat meek, but appears to grow a backbone, even arguing with Max in Angel.
The most notable argument in Angel starts at the beginning of the book with Dylan and Max arguing about how miserable Max has been since Fang left her. Dylan can heal himself almost instantly by placing his own saliva on his wounds and putting pressure on it. In addition, he has extremely good vision and clairvoyance. In Angel , Max finds a new appreciation for Dylan, and a romance is sparked, though Max is usually confused and therefore harsh. The first time Max allows Dylan to comfort her is in the desert where they embrace. Although she is confused, she allows him to get closer and closer to her.
Later, in the book Nevermore , Dylan is told by a 'Voice' that he must capture Max's heart with all his might, so he takes her to a treehouse he made himself and kisses her then. Later, Fang re-appears after his own clan had been destroyed and Max realizes her mistake, choosing to be with Fang instead of a clone with programmed feelings. Dylan goes on a rampage, destroying part of a town and even attempting to kill Fang.
Dylan is nowhere to be seen, so Dr. Martinez seizes her chance and whisks the original flock to a tropical paradise. Dylan appears and states that he will be there for Max when the world ends so they would die together. Max is irked but doesn't respond to him. Since a meteor is coming to demolish the planet, Dylan goes to herd mutant hybrid kids into elaborate caves. In the end, Dylan helps pull Max from the water after the apocalypse.
In Maximum Ride Forever , Dylan is seemingly killed but in reality is kidnapped by the Remedy and turned into a Horseman. However, he becomes aware that the transformation was not successful as he still has free will; when tasked to kill the flock, instead of doing so, he fakes their deaths so that no other Horseman will be sent to truly kill them.
