Alexia "Aqua" the Hedgehog is a shy, anthromorphic blue hedgehog who is an FC of MaxIrvaron. She plays as the Bash Sister to Terra the Ocelot. She is still a WIP, however.
Though she used to be the damsel-in-distress character who was simply used for the "shy blue-haired girl" trope, now, she's something more - she's a shy yet intelligent girl who still loves peace, but won't be afraid to pull her punches when the going gets tough and life gets tougher. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Alexia the Hedgehog.
Aqua is a 3'1", 69 pound hedgehog. Her fur is a neutral blue, and her skin is white. Her eyes are light purple, and vertical ovals. She has two eyelashes on each eye. She has two spiky quills that go straight down, and four locks in the front of her face.
She usually wears an cyan-colored jacket that kinda droops when it meets the wrist. Over it, there is a black, strapless tank top over the chest and a dark blue half-shirt on the bottom half, covering her stomach. She never wears gloves - she prefers to just go around with bare hands. Her legs have a streak on them where the rest is dark blue. She wears yellow shoes with white bands above and below them. Her tail is like a zig-zag.
Her usual expression is a smile, because she's usually happy. However, if something wrong happens, her mood and her face can change from happy rainbow to sad dumpster very quickly.
Aqua is a shy girl. She does not do well against big things that she's scared of. However... She isn't a pushover. Well, she kinda is, but that's only if peer pressure situations, which happens a lot, so -_-.
She's brave in her own right - she's just quiet. Very quiet. When she feels like somebody else is taking charge, you can be sure as heck she'll listen to them. She's the "always a bridesmaid, never a bride" type of girl who simply follows instructions given. Though she won't pipe up to take charge, she won't decline if someone suggests her to be the leader, though chances are she'll get really shaky and need some help.
Aqua depends on her friends for everything. If one of them dies, you can bet she'll be crying for two months (long enough to be mistaken for having bipolar disorder). They make her feel useful, and she carries on that kindness to others. It's like a path to what she thinks is the purpose of life - if you can't do good, then what are you doing, really? Are you just going to set out to make a bad mark on the world, or are you just going to give hugs? Aqua does the latter.
Aqua has no idea how to stand up for herself. If someone is a jerk to her, she'll probably ask them to stop and leave, albeit very quietly and nervously. She needs to learn how to be tougher, but this conflicts with her mindset, because she thinks that everyone else has to be softer. Due to this, she is very fragile, especially compared to her older friends (she's the youngest of the cast, only being 15 - the average is 18, and yes, I did the math).
Aqua is easily the most innocent of the gang. You have a silent bookworm, a cocky/deadpan snarker, a used-to-be criminal who loves to sass folks, an agent who loves to whip people into shape, a thief who treats everyone like a child, a village guardian who people better give respect, and a socially awkward thief. Now, read all those, and keep in mind that Aqua is simply a village guardian who loves peace.
Alexia is prone to stammering, sighing, and stopping mid-sentence. This usually happens when she is with new people, but not as oftenly with her friends. This is mostly caused by her shyness, though.
Way Back When
Aqua was born in the Green Hill Hut, a hut in... Green Hill Zone. It was extremely peaceful and laid-back there - everyone usually got along, and they all had a generally pacifistic attitude and outlook on life. Their lives were fun and all, but the only reason that such a calm tribe of sorts had lasted so long was because of a moment that had pretty much been branded into their history.
Similarly to echidnas, Chaos went on a rampage and attacked the tribe a few eons ago, and they were all powerless to stop him. He was so infuriated, not even Tikal could stop him - it looked like Aqua's tribe was going to be wiped from history. But them, wanting to not die, begged for his forgiveness, saying that if he let them live, that they would always be his servants in need.
Chaos accepted and gave them the gift of aqua/hydrokinesis. But before they left, Tikal left them with a prophecy - something like this would happen again, and that someone in their tribe with sacred ice powers would help seal Chaos back, saving them from any further trouble. But for the time being, Chaos was their god, so the tribe was usually helping out with things that worshipped Chaos, like building shrines, cleaning polluted water, and doing whatever then could to make Chaos happy.
Now, there was something worth mentioning, and that was the fact that while the whole story of Chaos was mostly regarded as fact, the prophecy Tikal had left had been lost in time, with no one even bothering to remember it - so, when Alexia demonstrated that she also had control over ice, despite the fact that she was the first ever cryokinetic in the history of the tribe, no one really reacted.
Things were relatively normal until one fateful day, Dr. Eggman had gotten some strange mystical energy signatures from the Green Hill Hut (specifically, from Aqua), and wanted to find out what it was, thinking it was an Emerald. His robots attacked, and a lot of people who were in the hut got robotized and tried to kill Aqua. Cyan and Tulip protected her and unrobotized the hut members. After the attack, they all decided to move somewhere else...
Onwards, to the Chemical Plant Zone, where Eggman attacked again!... Only this time, he killed some people... And then they moved again and again and again. However, the tribe members were usually safe from his attacks, and the hut was happy.
However, Alexia had an older brother named Crys. He was... strange, to say the least. He was incredibly introverted, paid no attention to the Chaos worshipping, and was rarely ever home. One day, he left the hut without a word, only for Cyan and Tulip to question where he went a day later. The tribe searched for him for a month before giving up. With much sadness, Alexia's family decided that he was probably dead, and that though it was very difficult losing a relative who was oh-so close to them, they would eventually have to move on.
A day after that, Cyan was found impaled with a yellow ice sword, and Tulip was missing. Now, tribe members were sure that people were out for her family - Crys and Tulip disappearing, and Cyan had been killed. Alexia was absolutely horrified, and when they told her to run and leave no trace of herself, she didn't waste any time. She packed her bags and ran for the hills.
Aqua was born with water and ice-related powers. She can make them come out of nowhere, she can make them hot of colder, and though she could control someone's bodily fluids, she has no idea how to. She is very proficient with the water part of her abilities, but with the ice, you shouldn't really count on it to be perfect, for she only knows how to make ice objects and how to freeze water. She can turn her whole body into water or ice, or even make a sculpture if herself that she can use to defend herself.
Aqua doesn't have many thing "special" about her. But she does have a few things that are easy to miss if you only know her for a few seconds. These are...
Alexia has super-fast reflexes, reaction speeds, and speed in general. This is a recessive trait among hedgehogs (no, I'm not making this up, it was confirmed in Sonic Chronicles), so it's only natural she would have it. However, her ice abilities make her more slippery, so she can't just run and run and stop suddenly. Her training with Terra, who is also known for her speed, also helps with this.
She also has a photographic memory. If she sees something, there's a very low chance she won't remember it. This has helped her in "detective" work in the past, and is still clear in her skillset today. However, she won't remember things she doesn't want to remember, and if she's knocked out right after, she won't remember what happened.
Also, due to being sent flying through time and space to witness the events of Secret Discord, Alexia has a slight sense of precognition. This has helped her with her reaction speed, and combined with her photographic memory, she can predict and remember.
Knows things about hand-to-hand combat, thanks to Amy and Terra's teaching. When she fights, she fights with her arms. She's kinda experienced, but she doesn't exactly do it a lot, so... -_- ...yeah. She is the least experienced of the crew, which justifies why one of them is always near to protect her. She can't even take down a bank robber by herself, something that everyone else can do in five seconds. Hence the fact that she is Terra's apprentice.
She has no healing powers, but with the right materials, she could heal someone from a fatal accident. She's saved a number of people from dying, and when she gets a bit older, she wants to be a doctor. She keeps Healing Elemental Rings in the village.
She can swim! In fact, she can hold her breath for an especially long time, which isn't a rare trait among OCs, but hey, it's still worth noting... She has perfect sight underwater, and could do an eye doctor test in the water and still get every letter right. But this "enhanced eyesight" is only in water - in air, her sight is as normal as possible.
Chao, chao chao chao chao! (She can speak to Chao, even if they only say chao!) Chao chao chao chao chao chao chao chao, chao. (She learned this ability from one of the village elders, and she is still practicing. She is very proficient with this skill.) Chao chao chao chao chao chao, chao chao chao. Chao chao chao chao-chao chao chao chao chao chao. (However, she still has lots to learn, hence the fact she is still practicing, not an A-Rank. She is still good enough to speak with her chao, though.)
Her fur turns half orange and half black, and she loses her pupils and irises. This form is as strong as anyone's Super form. She can only get into this form when really, really, really mad. She can see in the dark, breathe underwater, and sense energy; other than that, she doesn't get anything new. However, she can lose control when in this form for too long, and long for this form is five minutes. Speaking of which, there's a five minute time limit, so you can't save up energy in this form, or else just as you're about to use your attack, you turn back into your base form.
Aqua is soft and fragile, and she does not take jerks well. She can be seen as a person who is weak and scared to voice her opinion, and that's because... well, at times, she is.
Aqua can be a pushover at times. She is prone to peer pressure to an extent, and could easily be pushed around around jerks. In fact, if she didn't have brave friends like Max and Terra... I dunno how she'd survive.
Aqua is peaceful... to a flaw. Mega world-destroying robot on the loose? Everyone else'll agree and say that it needs to be destroyed, but she'll look for the good in it, confront, be a counselor-like figure... and then get knocked into a nearby skyscraper.
Aqua is especially weak in her leg area; she can't do JACK with her legs other than walking. Due to her poor lower body strength, a kick feels like a poke to whoever she's kicking.
She NEVER uses weapons; if an enemy can only be killed by using something like a Holy Sword, you better count on someone else to do it. She really hates firearms like guns, rifles, and machine guns.
Also, she gets motion sickness. If you bring her on a car, plane, jet, helicopter, some Extreme Gear, surf board (that's sad), or bus, please bring a barf bag.
Aqua and Eggman have a weird relationship. Aqua sees that he could use his smarts to make the world a great place, but instead, he tries to make it his paradise. Aqua gets really annoyed with him, and whenever the time comes, she'll help stop his evil plans, even if it means that someone will have to get hurt. She also holds a grudge against him for attacking her village and kidnapping most of the people, including her.
Eggman sees Aqua as an annoying little pest that needs to be exterminated. Other than that, he doesn't really care 'bout her, for he doesn't know she was the one with immense power.
- Metal Son- y'know, let's get this done with. Aqua hates Metal for kidnapping her, and Metal Sonic sees her as a threat. Done.
When Alexia got to know more about Scarlet, she also ended up meeting the fox's bestie, Mackenzie Hartley. At first, neither really cared about the other - Alexia was so busy with the village and repairs she didn't have time to go make new friends, and Mac had already been turned off by Terra's behavior, so he assumed Alexia wouldn't be different. However, once Mac went on a dangerous mission to retrieve a core before it exploded, and Alexia, wanting to see what exactly Mac did for a living, followed. Eventually, the core exploded, but Alexia (who came out of literally nowhere to Mac) was the one to cool it down. Mac confronted her, but then, he found out she was kind of cool, and she taught him that it was okay to get help on missions.
Later days, Mac and Aqua would get to know each other more, and Alexia saw Mac as a humorous and fun but pretty immature individual. Mac and her have a brother-sister like relationship, that is, if Mac was the rebellious older brother who didn't care so much for the rules.
When Aqua came to Wild Wind Village, she was scared. Her parents had been killed and her brother had disappeared, so she was scared to death, and also pretty desperate. When she met Terra, who was guarding the village, she could tell instantly what type of person she was, so she knew she'd have to earn her trust, not just take refuge without helping them at all. Over this period of time, Alexia saw Terra and how responsible and dedicated she was, and frankly, it made her a little jealous. She'd always been such a shy and timid individual, but Terra was closer to how she really wanted to be. So, putting her fears aside, Alexia asked Terra if she could assist with guarding and leading the village. Terra fortunately said yes, taking Alexia along as her apprentice.
Now, that off-putting and cold demeanor she was used to seeing of Terra was all gone. When they changed from clanmates to partners, Terra seemed to find her a lot more likeable, and Alexia the same. The two always had each other's backs, no matter what type of danger they were in, which was a pretty big step for Alexia, having some who could finally help her conquer her fears and place her worries aside. Along with that, Terra has seemed generally more emotional and kind to people ever since she and Alexia became best friends. However, here's where a tiny flaw in their relationship comes in - while Terra sees the two as sisters, Alexia actually has a crush on Terra, admiring her fearlessness, her compassion, and her will. So, sometimes, this can make situations between the two awkward due to this disconnect, especially since Alexia never plans on revealing her crush to the ocelot.
Scarlet and Aqua have a mutual friendship. As Scarlet was the one who saved her and Terra from Eggman, Alexia thinks that she is forever in Scarlet's debt. Scarlet doesn't think highly of Alexia, but still sees her as a friend. Scarlet, knowing how fragile Alexia is, always a tempts to protect her from possible threats. However, Alexia notices that Scarlet seems to be a little jealous of her, for whatever reason.
Alexia sees Kennedy as a really good older brother figure in her life, one that she really thought she needed ever since Crys' disappearance. Due to Kennedy's calm and protective nature, the two compliment each other well, with neither ever faltering to open up to one another. Kennedy also has a pretty good relationship with Terra, so that allows the two of them to interact and hang out much more than usual. They place all their trust in one another, making their relationship go really well.
Schnee and Alexia... oh, where do we even start with those two? Schnee is not like anyone Alexia has ever met - not even Mac was as upbeat, extroverted and friendly as Schnee was when they first met. When Alexia learned that Schnee had been part of the search of her when Luna had taken her, it allowed her to appreciate Schnee more than she normally would've, and Schnee got to know more about her in person. The two, along with Terra, all complete each other - despite their vastly different personalities and natures, they all get along really well, which is why they decided to become a "team," Team Saturn.
Ever since her first "battle" with Tina, Alexia could pretty much sense the conflict between Tina and the world she was stuck in. When the two first had their conversation, they were able to completely put their trust in one another, which was strange, because their friends were all duking it out. Meanwhile, Alexia and Tina have a very good relationship, two people who don't exactly like the violent setting they're in but deal with it anyway. Alexia is actually one of the reasons, Tina decided to introduce her and the rest of Team Watts to the main group.
When Alexia first met White, she got a very cold, very cynical vibe from him, and she was very scared that that was how he was going to be - someone who could only see the selfish and negative aspects of life without being able to appreciate the positive ones. However, when actually getting to know him, Alexia found out that though he had a slightly cynical perception of the world, he was actually a nice guy who was likable because he both had that serious air to him, but still some of that charm. Though they don't really interact too much, they have good amounts of faith in each other.
Foes and Rivals
Sephtis and Alexia tend to flat-out be the opposites of each other. Alexia is a shy, humble pacifist while Sephtis is a cocky and boastful warmonger. Ever since Sephtis had stopped assassinating people again, Alexia never really got a good vibe from him - he still seemed like pretty much the same person as before Luna's whole interruption. Alexia sees Sephtis as a dangerous person, and she honestly doubts f he can be trusted, the two don't hang out together that much, and they usually avoid conversation, but a lot of the time, if they do interact, it usually isn't positive.
Alexia was never able to really get a good look at Luna - she just seemed like someone who had no positive qualities whatsoever, and that was actually pretty difficult for Alexia to process, for she believed that everyone had a bit of good in them. However, she could see just how warped Luna was when she attacked the village, and though it was hard, she knew that Luna was a large threat who needed to be stopped. However, even to this day, she still wonders what would've happened if she could've had a heart-to-heart conversation with Luna and not always be placed in an intense situation with her.
