A highly intelligent if slightly unhinged Troll scientist, Bubonic the Hedgehog is a part of the Trollish Dark Council, although his past is largely a mystery that he prefers to keep under lock and key.
A lanky hedgehog who stands a fair bit over three feet tall, Bubonic has a short muzzle with an oblong nose, medium-sized, triangular ears, and a fairly short, slender tail.
His fur is primarily acid green in color, with an almond muzzle, chest, and stomach. His quills are long and wild, extending past his shoulders and sticking up all over the place like the hair of a stereotypical mad scientist. His eyes are also American yellow in color.
His attire typically consists of a white lab coat with no shirt beneath, white gloves, blue jeans, brown boots, and a pair of pince-nez glasses.
His virokinetic and biokinetic abilities are ineffective against inorganic opponents such as robots; opponents who are partially organic, however, can still be affected by his abilities.
Bubonic was partially responsible for Dudley becoming a walking beehive, achieved by replacing the koala's mental hivemind link with a biosymbiotic link to his bees.
Friends and Foes
- Dr. Eggman - Bubonic considered Eggman a rival through and through. While he does have some respect for his intellect, he seems to find his creations inferior, claiming that "while Eggman can mass-produce machines, I can mass-produce life!"
- The A.T.A. - Naturally, Bubonic considers the A.T.A to be enemies, as they betrayed the Trolls.
A brilliant scientist and biochemist who could easily rival Dr. Eggman with his intellect, Bubonic commands a great deal of respect within the Troll community, even being a part of the Dark Council. He's responsible for an astonishing number of Trollish creations, and also helped Frost the Hedgehog design a mechanism for the Troll Supply Truck in which a number of electrokinetic bodies would generate power through receivers into the trucks and allow them to run.
He typically comes off as eccentric and shrewd, always appearing to be scanning his environment and keeping close observations on the people he speaks to. He's rather prone to sarcasm and arrogance, and also has incredibly low empathy, caring little for the suffering of others, even of his own fellow Trolls; so far, the only beings he's really shown any sort of compassion for are his nephew Chimico the Cat, and the Advanced Creeperhogs he created, although the latter he tends to treat more like beloved pets.
Although he remains fiercely loyal to Rageik, he considers the lower Trolls to be mostly beneath him, and he has no problem using them in order to further his research, even experimenting on them for research purposes. Bubonic is always looking to improve his research, pushing himself to outdo whatever his most recent project was. He hates making mistakes, and he's easily frustrated by any imperfections or problems with his projects, even taking his anger out on the lower Trolls.
