Lara-Le is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. She is a Mobian echidna with red fur and hair. She has green eyes and wears a yellow dress. She is the mother of well-known character Knuckles the Echidna and Knecapeon "Kneecaps" Mace the Echidna, as well as the ex-wife of Locke the Echidna and current wife of Wynmacher.
Lara-Le is a member of the House of Arian, presumably named for an important ancestor of hers. She was not a prominent figure in Knuckles' life until years after his birth. Wife to the Guardian Locke, Lara-Le became furious with her husband when she realized what he had done to their son. Divorcing Locke, she intended to leave with Knuckles, but was forced to give him up. When Knuckles grew old enough to question her absence, Locke simply replied that she was gone. Because of this, Knuckles assumed that she was dead, not thinking that his father's actions had driven her away. Despite this, she still had feelings towards Locke as he did her and she was deeply saddened by his death in Mobius: 25 Years Later.
Later, when Echidnaopolis was restored, Knuckles met his mother for the first time. He grew to love her, and the only bit of contention he felt was when she remarried to an Echidna named Wynmacher. Later, Lara-Le gave birth to Knuckles' half-brother, Knecapeon Mace, otherwise known as 'Kneecaps' or 'Mace'. Shortly afterwards, Lara and the other former residents of the destroyed city of Echidnaopolis were faced with the horror of a reborn Enerjak, who proved benevolent as he transported them to the safe haven of Albion. Of course, Lara knew nothing at the time of the full evil behind the new Enerjak: that he was, in fact, her firstborn son Knuckles.
