— Bidane the Leopard
Bidane the Leopard (pronounced "bə-DAH-nee") is a member of the Soumerca Egg Army, and serves under Soumerca Sub-Boss Avalaine the Eagle of the Jade Fortress Egg Base.
A slim clouded leopard who stands a bit over three feet tall, Bidane has a short muzzle with a triangular nose, medium-sized, somewhat pointed ears, and a long, fairly slender tail that fluffs out more near the tip.
Her fur is primarily light crimson in color, with a white muzzle, chest, and stomach, irresistible facial markings and ears, and large, irresistible-colored splotches that decorate her shoulders, back, and thighs; past her shoulders and thighs are smaller spots on her arms and legs, and her tail is ringed in thick, splotchy, broken stripes. She has no hair on her head, instead having longer fur that's tied back in a short ponytail, and her eyes are jade in color.
Her outfit consists of an American purple long-sleeve top with a thick white collar, white stripes down the sleeves, and a zipper down the front, as well as white gloves, black pants, and American purple boots with white cuffs.

A fast fighter who primarily excels in hit-and-run tactics, Bidane whittles down foes with quick, precise strikes, while using her natural speed and agility to evade retaliation; the Cybernetic enhancements in her hips and legs boost both her strength and stamina, allowing her to kick hard enough to dent steel and run for long periods of time. She wields a pair of Energy Tonfas with purple Chaos Drive cores as her weapons of choice, and also carries a laser rifle with her as a backup weapon, as well as more natural weapons in the form of her claws.
Being a feline, Bidane has keen eyesight and hearing, and also has sharp teeth with strong jaws, allowing her to deliver punishing bites. She is also a novice-level pyrokinetic, and primarily uses weak, low-level techniques of the Fire Element, such as Firebreathing and Gatling Fire.
However, proceeding the events of Heating Things Up, her training with Razer the Fox allowed her to develop her pyrokinesis further, putting her at a higher tier than before; she can now perform higher-tier techniques like Inferno Slash and Fire Blast with relative ease. Additionally, she is capable of performing an Elemental Link, first taught to her by Razer the Fox.
Bidane is slightly resistant to the Elements of Fire and Nature. She is quite fast, and can easily outpace slower foes and evade their attacks. Hot, dry weather strengthens her pyrokinesis, making it a bit stronger than normal.
Bidane is weak to the Elements of Water and Earth. Her defenses aren't anything special, therefore she mostly relies on her agility to try and evade potentially devastating attacks. Moisture-heavy areas and rainy weather completely nullifies her pyrokinesis, given how it's only novice-level to begin with. She also cannot swim, and even seems to have an extreme fear of deep water.
Proceeding the events of Heating Things Up, moisture-heavy areas and rainy weather no longer completely nullify her pyrokinesis, but they will still significantly weaken it.
Friends and Foes
- The Eggman Empire -
- Razer the Fox - While Razer himself may oppose Dr. Eggman, Bidane holds no personal grudge towards Razer, and even considers him to be an ally, as he was willing to train her to help her develop her pyrokinetic abilities further. They also share a common enemy in the form of The Silver Huntsmen. In addition, she gets along with him very well, even if she were to treat him as her captive in case Eggman were to call in. Razer has a noticeably shorter temper than Bidane, but she seems to be adept at helping him keep that in check.
- Viridian Jungle Freedom Fighters -
- The Silver Huntsmen -
- Razer the Fox - To an extent, and is shown to be genuinely caring for the younger fox despite working for Dr. Eggman.
Bidane is a naturally reserved woman, but often tends to come off as aloof, not easily warming up to strangers; it's rare that she'll even willingly engage in conversation with someone she doesn't know, let alone drop her guard around them. In conversation, she's a bit blunt, but typically retains a calm and even-tempered demeanor; it takes quite a lot to get her genuinely angry, and usually reacts to annoyances with little more than a huff and perhaps a sharper tone of voice.
Around those that she has well-developed, positive relationships with, Bidane is laid-back and friendly, as shown how more open and relaxed she is around the other Egg Soldiers under Avalaine's command, and around Razer (who became her love interest), as well. She is terrified of deep water, and upon being confronted with it, her stoic manner is likely to drop, even more so if she happens to end up in the water, to the point where she'll have a full-on panic attack.
