The Duke of Velcronia is a wealthy noble who does a lot of secret work to help the resistance. He does not trust the Sonic Underground quite as much as he should, which is partly understandable.
He pays considerable taxes to Doctor Robotnik, and in exchange he gets to hold a single ball per year. He finds homes for Max and his gang. The coins in the local area have his face on them.
