Cquote1 I can't believe such a thing happened... This whole world is filled with such beautiful things, that includes people like you too! I just can't believe someone would call you ugly.... that's not very nice at all. I know that you'll just need to try to reason with them. And if they won't work, just try to ignore them, unless it really bugs you. Cquote2
Alyssa the Dog

Alyssa the Dog is a fan character created by Darkest Shadow. She is a competitive dancer who's skills are spectacular. She is also the owner of Milkshake the Chao and the older sister of Katrina. She is a member of the MYSDC, the Mariala Young Star Dance Company.


Alyssa was created about 4 years ago. She was inspired by an Amy Rose Christmas speedpaint on YouTube. She was first a Cream recolor, and her pet chao was a Cheese recolor. She was first seen wearing a pink and purple winter combo, which later became her Winter Wonderland! outfit.

The creator then decided to make a few pictures of his own for Alyssa to enhance her design. That is where she changed up her outfit to a light blue and pink combo. She was only 8 years old, and her creator made her the sister of Cream. The creator wanted her to become a dancer.

Then, he decided to invert the colors to make it a little lighter pink, and blue for that to become her outfit for "Stars on Broadway Street!". The creator was inspired by an Ariana Grande song, "The Way", to make Grande Alyssa's voice actress and as well as a singer. She was made to be a little older;10.

Then, "Winter Wonderland!" came and the creator made improvements to Alyssa's first ever design. She was still 10, but she looked taller. Nothing about her really changed for her.

In 2014, the creator held a contest for a new design for Alyssa. A user, named LisyShade, created a new outfit that slightly resembled the SOBS outfit, but he liked it and used it for the new season of the Mariala Anime, "Girls World". She was made to be 11 and she turned 12 in the series. She now goes to the MCA, and is roommates with Michelle. Her voice was also changed to Alyson Stoner, which was inspired by a Phineas and Ferb character, Isabella.

In 2015, the creator held yet another contest for a new design for Alyssa. He liked the entries, but he didn't want to use them. So he asked his cousin for a cool design, and he brought in something that was.... good. He used it for the new anime series. She still goes to MCA, and she turns 13 while in the series. Alyssa's dance studio is now introduced to be the MSYDC.

In 2016, he completely got rid of the idea that she was related to canon characters such as Cream and Vanilla.
