Councilor Darwin is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. He is a Mobian echidna and a Councilor on the High Council of Echidnaopolis following its return from a pocket Zone.
Between his initial appearance and its reprint in the Knuckles Archives, Darwin's coloring was changed from red to blue, a common occurrence given the high number of red-furred Echidnas in the early comics. Both incarnations were depicted as a somewhat elderly male Echidna with glasses and a short white beard. Like many Mobians, he wore white gloves, but his main attire consisted of a blue tunic with a black shirt visible underneath.
As a result of Echidnaopolis return to the Floating Island, the former Dingo city of Cavem Canus was destroyed, and the Echidna people turned their attention to constructing housing for the Dingos in Echidnaopolis. However, Helmut Von Stryker came before the council to complain about the lag. Darwin assured him that they were working as quickly as possible, but Helmut remained unconvinced, feeling that Darwin would be just as dissatisfied as he was were their positions reversed.
