Connery is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series and its spin-off comics. He was a Mobian horse and a Knight in the service of the House of Acorn many centuries ago, and proved himself an expert swordsman and defender of the weak and innocent. For this reason, the Ancient Walkers selected him to be their Paladin and purge the world of dark magic, granting him great longevity and the mystical Sword of Light for the job.
Connery did his job well, slaying many evil wizards and tyrants across the world. Connery assumed his job was finished after slaying Poe and Damocles the Elder, and went to become Merlin Prower's bodyguard. However, there were still elements of dark magic left on the loose, one such case that of the sorcerer Black Death and his partner the Enchantress, who took control of Knuckles the Echidna during his quest to find the Sword of Acorns. Connery saved the young Guardian, slaying the villains and becoming a friend to Knuckles.
Connery journeyed with Merlin to Knothole in the hope of saving the ailing Ancient Walkers and keeping Mammoth Mogul trapped in a Chaos Emerald. In the end, the quest ended before it even began, as the Ancient Walkers were destroyed by the dimensional breach caused by the activation of the Egg Grape Chamber, and Mogul quickly overpowered Connery and the other Freedom Fighters present and stole the Crown of Acorns, and later joined Ixis Naugus and the Destructix, recruiting them all and gaining the Sword of Acorns as well.
Connery and the Freedom Fighters attacked and did battle with Mogul and his army of minions, with Connery eventually fighting Mogul in a mighty sword battle. Recognizing that the royal artifacts couldn't be saved, and he had one more task to complete, Connery summoned all of his magic, channeled his life-force into his blade and destroyed the Sword and Crown of Acorns in a mighty magical blast... and was reduced to ashes by the effort.
Connery's remains were later placed in Knothole Graveyard, and later Tommy Turtle was buried beside him. Connery's sword is now in King Elias Acorn's possession, who has vowed to be as strong and wise a warrior as Connery.
He has brown fur, black hair and blue eyes and wears green vest, chain mail armor and red gauntlets.
