Satbk townsperson

A typical member of the Townspeople race.

The Townspeople, also known as Villagers or Followers, are a species that appear in Sonic and the Black Knight. They are the primary inhabitants in the world of Camelot. They foremost reside in their capital, Camelot Castle, but they can also be found across the kingdom's surrounding lands, such as the Highlands and the Outlands. Around the Deep Woods, villagers live in settlements such as pastoral farmlands, and in Titanic Plain migrating villagers reside in moving wooden forts.

Description

Anatomy

The townspeople are a race of humanoid creatures resembling a cross between dwarves and elves. They have long pointy ears, dark eyes, and they usually have pale, yellowish skin. In terms of height, the townspeople come in different respectable size, though they can be as tall as about 6'6". They usually wear full-body cloaks and have facial tattoos.

While not strictly resembling humans, members of their race such as Merlina the Wizard can bear a closer resemblance to humans, standing taller with more human-like body proportions and similar eyes, with only their long ears being their distinguishing trait.

Characteristics and Culture

The townspeople mostly live a lifestyle similar to that of real-life people in the medieval ages. Just like humans, most of them just want to get on with their lives despite the craziness around them as they do not like to concern themselves with trivial matters.[1]

Powers and Abilities

While similar to humans in terms of abilities, the townspeople have a unique way of breathing, as they breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen, similar to trees.[1]

Role in the Game

Many of Sonic's quests and missions in Sonic and the Black Knight often involves Sonic aiding the townspeople in some way. While the Townspeople will continue their lives throughout the adventure, they will only interact with Sonic through Acts of Chivalry or need his help. It is considered dishonorable to attack the Townspeople thus earning the name "Despised One" in the treasury. When enemies appear they will flee but can still be harmed if Sonic is not careful when attacking.

Additionally, the player can collect a number of townspeople from each Mission in the game, where they are called "Followers", which can be used to improve the player's title.

Trivia

  • The developers of Sonic and the Black Knight designed the townspeople to embody the spirit of the forest.
  • The townspeople are favored food of dragons, as they have been seen captured in Crystal Cave, where they are to be served as dinner for the dragon.
