Who is… SONIC THE HEDGEHOG?

Origin Sonic was born in the middle of the Great War and was originally named after his grandfathers (he later had his name legally changed to “Sonic” with no offense meant to his forebears). While very young, he lost his parents to the first clandestine roboticization experiments.  He was taken in by his uncle, Sir Charles Hedgehog, and after Dr. Robotnik’s takeover, briefly played delivery boy for his uncle’s chilidog stand while spending time in Knothole.

Tragedy struck when Uncle Chuck was captured by Dr. Robotnik’s forces and roboticized.  From there, Sonic threw his full support behind the Freedom Fighters and fought to liberate the kingdom.  Sonic playfully took on Dr. Robotnik’s first few generations of badniks, growing in skill until, by his mid-teens, he was a true threat to Dr. Robotnik’s forces.

Sonic has always been at odds with his nature: arrogant on the one hand, but unwavering in his heroism on the other.  These traits were what both endeared and frustrated his first love, Sally Acorn.

Sonic has become a beacon of hope for the world.  He’s traveled the globe, and even traversed outer space, alternate dimensions, and time itself.  He has been named the chosen hero of the multiverse, having over the course of his adventures faced down mad scientists, evil wizards and even gods with a smirk and a laugh.

While having lost his knighthood due to a past mistake, Sonic currently holds the rank of Gentleman-at-Arms within the Republic of Acorn.  Sonic continues to take life with a breezy attitude, having fun whether taking on the forces of evil, or kicking back with his guitar.
