According to legend, the Avatar would return from beyond the grave in order to bring peace to Mobius, and possess the power to perform miracles. These signs point to Knuckles the Echidna as the most likely candidate for Avatar (he reteurned from the dead and stopped an earthquake causes by the Xorda) , though he doesn't willingly accept the role. Despite this, he is revered by the former inhabitants of Echidnaopolis and by members of the Dark Legion as the Avatar. When Dr. Finitevus displayed a destructive and violent nature, the inhabitants of Albion theorized that he was perhaps a negative force of the Avatar, which makes sense as he was thought to be a photo-negative of Knuckles.
