The Owl House Wiki

I've got bad news and good news. Bad news is I'm all out 'till next week. Good news is feathers are a good look for you.
—Morton to Eda, after she waited too long to stock up on elixirs.

Morton is a minor character in The Owl House. He is an apothecarist working at Mr. Elixir, and Eda is shown to buy elixir from his shop often.



Morton is a lanky, young man with light skin, light brown eyes, and thick brown hair almost reaching his shoulders.

In the epilogue to "Watching and Dreaming", Morton's hair is shorter, he grew a moustache, and he wears purple shades.


Morton wears a gray funnel hat and has pointy ears. He wears a mint green, long-sleeved top with fingerless gloves. On top of his shirt, he wears a long, brown overlay dress, with a dark brown belt and a frog necklace, two-toned teal pants, and brown shoes.

In the epilogue, the colors of his clothes have been reversed but he wears a black long-sleeved top and gloves, and his pants are a lighter shade of brown.


Morton is an awkward yet earnest and down-to-earth businessman who always strives to help his customers. Although this is the case, Morton is sometimes lacking in common sense, such as once staying up all night tasting poisons, and later wondering why he was ill.[1] Morton also gets annoyed when his customers pay him in any currency other than Snails.
