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.
Appearance and Powers
With the seven Chaos Emeralds in his possession almost all of the time, Feist can perform any act he can imagine and look like whatever he chooses. He takes the form of a giant panda clad in a silver belt with glowing eyes. However since there appear to be no other beings in the Zone of Silence, he can warp the reality of the Zone, and is prone to creating challenges for anybody who should come to the zone for his entertainment. He can even negate other beings' powers.
Feist is almost undefeatable by normal standards; only if he is taken completely off guard or battled by somebody with exceptional chaos powers can he be even temporarily subdued.
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.
- Feist's design originally made it difficult to determine what type of animal he was, leading several fans to believe that he was a badger, skunk, or wolverine before refinements identified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.
