Iblis is a destructive fire spirit and is the fiery power and destructive nature of the god Solaris.
Iblis was a energy spirit born during an experiment when Solaris, the god of time, light, and fire, was split into two halves; Mephiles, who consisted of Solaris' power and intelligence, and Iblis, who consisted of the god's fiery power and destructive nature. The Duke of Soleanna, who had been experimenting with Solaris, along with his researchers, had no other option but to use the power of a Chaos Emerald to seal the energy spirit within his daughter, Princess Elise, dying in the process himself. Iblis would then remain sealed inside the princess until Elise gave into despair.
Mephiles, who was trapped within a device called the Scepter of Darkness by Shadow the Hedgehog, was released ten years later and created a plan that spanned over two hundred years, which resulted in the release of Iblis among other things. With the power of the Chaos Emeralds, Mephiles rejoined Iblis and Solaris was reborn. Iblis' existence was ultimately erased when Sonic the Hedgehog and Elise traveled back in time to the days before Solaris was experimented upon and snuffed out the tiny flame, thus ending Solaris', and Iblis', existence.
- Iblis was first hinted to have existed within the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book universe when Ian Flynn confirmed that the events of Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) had occurred in the comics on the Ask Ian discussion board. It was first later in the Archie Comics' The Complete Sonic Comic Encyclopedia that Iblis was officially revealed to have existed, along with details about his history.
