Captain Amanda Tower is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. She is a high-ranking human officer of G.U.N. and the commander of the United Federation Air Force vessel Letter of Gabriel.

Appearance

Amanda Tower is an average-sized woman with peach skin, short, light brown hair and blue eyes. She wears a G.U.N. uniform consisting of a navy, brown and white colored cap and a jacket.

History

Shattered World Crisis

When Station Square was hit by the Shattered World Crisis, Captain Tower and the Letter of Gabriel were the first G.U.N. force to respond. They arrived just in time to bolster the taxed Freedom Fighters, who had arrived earlier and done their best to help evacuate civilians to safety. Captain Tower contacted the Sky Patrol and spoke with Princess Sally, thanking her for the efforts of the Freedom Fighters. Accepting her thanks graciously, Sally noted that the Freedom Fighters were used to working with Team Dark rather than with G.U.N. itself, and Captain Tower replied that the team was on another mission.[1]

Captain Tower was later joined on her vessel by Commander Abraham Tower and the members of Team Dark. Unfortunately, when the Unity Engines began merging their world with that of Mega Man's World, the Letter of Gabriel was fused with a government building in Mega City, causing an explosion. This resulted in the apparent deaths of all hands and the building workers, including Shadow the Hedgehog and Mayor Leonard Dorado.[2] However, thanks to Xander Payne destroying Sigma in the past, Amanda Tower's death was undone, with no memories of the incident.[3]

Personality

Amanda Tower is a dutiful soldier with a commanding presence. She is also a consummate professional, fully willing to work with the Freedom Fighters and to offer them reassurance in the midst of a crisis.

Trivia

  • In her initial appearance, Captain Tower's relationship to Commander Abraham Tower was not clarified. Given that they share the same last name, it stands to reason that she is related to him.
  • The concept for Captain Tower was likely drawn from the game Shadow the Hedgehog, specifically dialogue from Expert Mode in Cosmic Fall. In the level, the Commander's game counterpart mentions having recently become a grandfather, indicating that he has at least one child.
