Nic

Nicolette "Nic" the Weasel, is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog and its spin-off comic series' published by Archie Comics. She is a Mobian weasel and the older sister of Nack the Weasel.

Description

Nic has purple and white fur, blue eyes, four-fingered hands, three-toed feet, a ponytail, wears a brown cowboy hat, boots, and gloves similar to Nack's and a brown vest wears her hair in a braid, wears shoes like Nack's but the colors are turned around (like Lupe Wolf) and carries a pistol. She is also a treasure hunter. She has always been ahead of Nack and he wants to gain her respect. Ever since they were kids she beat Nack at everything. She has a habit of getting herself into trouble, as does her brother, but she always manages to get out. She has a short temper. She enjoys looking at the stars at night.

Trivia

  • Nic's nickname creates a bit of a pun with her brother's, either from the children's rhyme "This Old Man" or the term "nicknack."
  • Artist Jeff Axer created a new design for Nic that was never printed. While researching artwork to use in Sonic the Hedgehog: The Complete Sonic Comic Encyclopedia, Archie personnel in Mamaroneck discovered that design and writer Ian Flynn was trying to publish it the next time Nic makes an appearance.[1] However, Ian Flynn revealed in an Ask Ian podcast that he in fact dislikes Nic. Nic's new appearance was featured in Sonic the Hedgehog: The Complete Sonic Comic Encyclopedia.
  • According to a post back in November 2010, writer Ian Flynn intended to write of Nic the Weasel as dead off-screen according to a post he made.[2] But after realizing how much love she got in the same thread he posted that, he changed his mind about having Nic die, and intend to bring her back someday before the legal issues with Ken Penders.[3] Given Nic's origins as a Ken Penders character-albeit one heavily based on a Sega character-it is likely that she won't be appearing in the comics again.
  • The establishment that Nic got her airship from, the Five and Gemstone, is undoubtedly meant to be a nod to the "Five and Dime" variety stores.
  • In many of the comics, Nic's color shifted from lavender to purple.
