Feist, a giant panda with black and white fur, green eyes and large metal belt who was banished to the Zone of Silence, became a lackey of Ixis Naugus'--like Uma Arachnis, Warlord Kodos, and King Maximillian Acorn--after being defeated by the wizard's magic, a fact that Naugus would later brag about.
Sonic and co. first learned about him during their use of a machine to get into King Acorn's dreams, during which dream versions of himself and Kodos attacked Sonic.
Feist later became the ruler of the Zone of Silence after all of the Chaos Emeralds in the universe were sent there by Turbo Tails and Super Shadow, having been gathered by A.D.A.M. With his newly unlimited power, he fused all of the jewels into seven Emeralds of varying color. In addition, he reshaped the Zone of Silence, renaming it the Special Zone. Thanking Sonic for his new power, Feist gave him the grey Emerald, saying that if he wanted more, he would have to work for it. Because they both see Ixis Naugus as an enemy, Feist came to regard Sonic as an ally--though this is clearly limited to their antagonism of the wizard.
Far larger than any Mobian, Feist is clad only in a belt made out of silver metal. He presumably has strength proportionate to his size, and was apparently so powerful that it took Naugus' magic to defeat him. During Sonic's first encounter with him in King Acorn's dreams, he also displayed laser vision abilities. As a result of his control of the Chaos Emeralds, he has also seemingly gained reality-warping abilities derived from Chaos energy.
- Feist's design originally made it hard to determine what type of animal he was, leading several fans to believe that he was a badger, skunk, or wolverine before refinements identified him as a panda.
