Sonic the Hedgehog is the main protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog television series. He is an anthropomorphic hedgehog endowed with super speed and champion of the Knothole Freedom Fighters. He is able to harness the forces of the Power Rings, which charges up his super speed.
Sonic was raised by his Uncle Chuck in Mobotropolis, during the reign of the King. As a child, Sonic used to play with his friend, Princess Sally. Sir Charles was a top inventor of the kingdom and a personal friend of the King. Following the Great War, a warlord named Julian (later known as Doctor Robotnik) orchestrated a coup d'état and banished the King to the Void. Julian then renamed himself Robotnik and ordered that all citizens of Mobotropolis be roboticized and transformed into mindless slaves. Sonic and Sally, along with several other children, were spirited out of the city and hid inside a woodland camp that would eventually become Knothole Village. At the same time, Uncle Chuck fell into Robotnik's hands and was roboticized. Sonic remains frustrated by his inability to free his uncle from Robotropolis.
Sonic is a cool teenager with a big attitude. He possesses a lot of self-confidence and has a playful, yet never mean-spirited arrogance about him, which lets him have fun even in the face of danger and crack jokes while staring evil in the eye.
Sonic is very impatient when it comes to waiting and will actively seek out action, which makes him ignore manners and social customs and act before thinking. Because of his attitude, Sonic also sometimes come across as egotistical, but he is never selfish in his actions. Despite his flaws, Sonic is a good-natured person with a big heart and a strong sense of justice, and is fully devoted both to his friends and the Freedom Fighter cause.
