Kwami (クワミ Kuwami?) is a character that appears in Sonic Unleashed. He is a human resident of Mazuri and the father of Ana.

History

PS3/Xbox 360

For some time, Kwami displayed a form of spiritual power, a rare ability that few people in Mazuri were born with. In his time, Kwami would often communicate with spirits though concentration and by murmuring up at the heavens. Over time, he became the village chief, while his dedication to Mazuri and his leadership skills made him the foremost candidate for the next village elder. At some point, Kwami had a daughter name Ana, who proved to be quite an handful for him.

During the beginning of Sonic Unleashed, Kwami became possessed by some of Dark Gaia's Minions, which made him an excitable goofball at night, but would then revert back to normal during daytime. Later on, during the night, he met when Sonic the Werehog and Chip when they came to find Professor Pickle, where he told them, due to the influence of Dark Gaia's minions, of how excitable he was believing he heard spirits talking.

Shortly after Sonic, Tails and Chip rescued Professor Pickle from Dr. Eggman's base, Kwami and his village were attacked by Dr. Eggman and his robot forces during the doctor's search for the local Gaia Temple. There, Kwami and most of the village's men stood as the front line of defense against Eggman's Egg Fighters. As the doctor tried to negotiate with them, Kwami was unfazed by the doctor until Kwod threw a stone at Eggman, promoting Kwami to pull Kwod back to protect him as Elder Gwek also restrained his villagers from provoking Eggman further. Fortunately, Kwami and the rest of the village were saved by Sonic the Hedgehog and Chip, who managed drive Dr. Eggman and his forces off, and Kwami joined his village in thanking Sonic for saving them. After setting down, Kwami told Sonic and Chip that he could sense Eggman was heading for the Gaia Temple which made him wonder what the doctor wanted there as it was a holy place that he and the village dared not approach.

After Sonic and Chip left, Kwami prayed to the spirits and their ancestors for their safe return. When Sonic and Chip returned from beating Eggman and restoring the continent, Kwami told them of how relieved he was over their return and of how he had prayed to the spirits. He then remaking that he now had to keep praying to the spirits as thanks for their welfare and watching over them.

Over the next period, Kwami was still tormented by Dark Gaia's Minions, shifting between his moods between day and night, though he began to become aware of a dark and powerful presence growing stronger at night. During daytime in this period, Kwami told Sonic and Chip when he met them about how he could sense Dark Gaia's Minions. During nighttime in in this period, however, Kwami would greet Sonic and Chip silly whenever he met them and tell them to enjoy the time they had left since the world was ending. Eventually though, Kwami was freed from the influence of Dark Gaia's Minions when Sonic the Werehog and Chip returned and exorcised him. Sensing the evil spirits were departing, Kwami thanked Sonic and Chip for saving everyone, though he worried what kind of spirits could do this and what it would mean to the world.

Later on, Kwami prepared a ceremony that would let him to talk to the spirits in hope of checking on the safety of the village´. However, he needed a certain plant, which could only be found in the wilds outside Mazuri and had to be collected during daytime and bought back before sunset, something which Kwami could never make in time. When Kwami later met Sonic and Chip during the day, he told them about his ceremony and asked Sonic if he would help preparing it. As Sonic accepted, Kwami told him to bring the plant he needed before sunset. As Sonic returned with the plant in the nick of time, Kwami thanked Sonic for bringing just the plant he needed. He then told them that he would complete the ceremony by himself now, as conversing with spirits had to be done in secrecy, before telling them to come back later.

During the ceremony, Kwami heard terrible news from the spirits, which said that Mazuri was filled with darkness. During the same night, Kwami met Sonic and Chip again, where he was initially too shocked to tell them what he had heard, though he managed to tell them that he had heard some terrible news and told them to come back in the morning. When Sonic and Chip returned in the morning, Kwami told them what he had heard from the spirits, before enlisting Sonic to find this evil and drove it out. When Sonic returned from destroying this evil, which turned out to be an Egg Fighter, Kwami pronounced that the evil was gone and thanked Sonic on the behalf of the village for saving it. Following that, whenever Kwami met Sonic and Chip again, he told them that he would pray to the spirits to protect them during their journey as a thanks of all they had done.

Later on, Kwami was offered the position as village elder by Gwek, who had decided to step down as elder as he had had enough of this job, which Kwami accepted, thus becoming the newest village elder. After that, Kwami saw that Ana had returned from her travel across the world. However, Kwami was displeased to learn that Ana had brought a young man called Musaid with her to marry him, as he did not believe she could be happy with someone from outside the village. As such, he told Ana that he would not allow this marriage and denied it (not aware that Musaid did not want to get married either).

While grumbling over the situation, Kwami met Sonic again, who had be send by Ana to soften him up. As Kwami explained what had happen to Sonic, Sonic disagreed and told him that he should approve their marriage. Kwami still refused, however, as he did not find Musaid trustworthy, but Sonic told him to trust Ana's judgment. After considering this, Kwami still had his doubts, and asked Sonic of his opinion about giving them his blessing. As Sonic suggested to test them, Kwami remembered that Mazuri had a ritual trial; if Musaid passed it, he would be deemed worthy and Kwami would be able to give Ana and Musaid his blessing. Kwami then thanked Sonic for his sage advice and later told Ana that he would make his decision the same night.

That night, Kwami told Ana and Musaid of his decision before standing by in the village, waiting for the results of Musaid's trial. Eventually, the trial was passed (though Sonic cleared it on behalf of Musaid by request from Ana) and Kwami, though somewhat displeased, accepted the outcome. As promised, Kwami declared that he would give Ana and Musaid his blessing the next day.

Kwami later watched on in horror with the rest of his village as Dark Gaia began to cast the world into darkness while maturing into Perfect Dark Gaia, but rejoiced as the world returned to normal following Perfect Dark Gaia's defeat at the hands of Super Sonic and the Gaia Colossus.

Fortunately, Kwami and the rest of the village were saved by Sonic the Hedgehog and Chip, who managed drive Dr. Eggman and his forces off, and Kwami joined his village in thanking Sonic for saving them. After setting down, Kwami introduced himself to Sonic and thanked him on behalf of the village before mentioning that himself and the villagers seldom went near the Sacred Shrine.

Some time later, Kwami met Sonic and Chip again where he told them that the wild animals became wilder at night abd had attacked people, even the timid herbivores, and wondered what forces were behind this.

Later on, Kwami met Sonic and Chip again. Having seen Sonic's Werehog transformation, he told Sonic that he looked formidable in that form before asking him if he knew where Maruzi was located. When Sonic answered his question, Kwami told Sonic that it warmed his heart to hear it and gave him Soundtrack 35.
