General Info

Daniel Brady Gates is a nineteen-year-old hedgehog from Tamaruin City. He has been living with his parents his entire life in a small house, right near the town border next to Mariala City. He stayed there because he liked the community. Normally, he likes to cross over the border and spend most of his time in Mariala City where his clique usually used to hang out.

Danny's life is dedicated to boxing. He practices four hours a day, five days a week to keep in top shape. He travels all around Lacancory to compete in championships and is one of the top 30 boxers in New Verona. He has won four national championships, however, he has yet to win his first intercontidental title.

Physical Appearance

Standing at 3'10, Danny is a hedgehog with brown fur. His hair is rather long and flowy, going gown to his shoulders. He has bangs on the right side of his face. He has fur all over his body. His skin and muzzle are both peach. His ears, unlike most hedgehogs, are significantly longer and pointier. His eyes are disconnected with vibrant purple irises.

As of now, he wears a dark blue and opened jacket with no shirt underneath to show his chest. He also wears light blue jeans. He also wears black Nike sneakers with white laces.


Danny is best described as fearless. Incredibly brave and carefree, he could face any challenge thrown right at him. He has confidence even when he doesn't need it, and the words "give up" never pop up in his mind. Some people may think he may be crazy because of this, but he just thinks everyone is just too scared.

Danny is also extremely charismatic. Charming, brave, and funny, he's the ideal boyfriend for a common teenage girl. A great sense in fashion and very calm and understanding, it's hard to break a relationship with him.

Strengths and Powers


Danny's whole life is centered around his main passion, boxing. Danny trained in boxing all of his life and is known to be one of the best boxers in New Verona. He made it in several fights, and is now a professional, taking on Lacancory's strongest and most formidable opponents.

Of course, boxing involves tons of arm strength, which is just what Danny has to offer. His punches are extremely strong, and can seriously injure his opponents. It only takes a few punches to knock out his opponent. Boxing also needs for him to defend, block, dodge and tolerate the punches thrown at him, juggling all excellently, making the perfect recipe for the amazing boxer.

Even though the amount of training he does is ridiculous, he also needs to keep in top condition by increasing his strength, stamina, and durability. He often goes to the gym to either lift weights or to run on the treadmill.

Extreme Sports

The daredevil he is, Danny isn't afraid of anything. So far he has done several extreme sports to prove his fearlessness, such as rock-climbing, cliff jumping, skydiving, ziplining, jetskiing, kite-surfing, trampolining, hang gliding, skiing, bungee jumping and scuba diving. He plans to do much more dangerous and risky events in the future.

  • David the HedgeFox- David is one of Danny's best friends. Alexis brought the two together. Initially it was awkward when her boyfriend met her ex-boyfriend, and he used to always start fights over her, but over time the two became pals. David even taught him how to ride a skateboard, which they did often together a lot. The two are still best friends to this day.
  • Cole the Echidna- Cole and Danny are also best friends. The two were both in David's clique and rode skateboards together. However, things really started to heat up with Danny "stole his girl" by dating Christina days after Cole broke up with her. Cole hated him for a month, and then just got over it and Christina.


  • Alexis Petals- Alexis and him dated for five whole years. They broke up when Danny started to have feelings for Christina while the two were still dating, and he started to become uninterested. It's been months and they still act awkward around each other.
  • Christina the HedgeCat- Christina dated him for ten strong months, feeling good about the relationship. The two were extremely happy together, and with both of them breaking up with their initial "true lovers", it would be a great way to get closer. Christina broke up with him to defend Alexis, saying that she was foolish for even trying since he already dated and failed with her best friend. They don't talk much anymore, now they are just acquaintances.


  • Sebastian the Fox Hybrid- Danny always thought Sebastian was a snob and a loser, even when he was part of David's clique. As if that wasn't a strong enough reason to hate him, the fire only burned brighter when he turned against David and his friends and suddenly turned evil.
