This continuity takes place within an alternate universe of modern-day Mobius, separate from canon. Taking elements from both the Sonic games and comic continuities, this installment introduces the main characters through four different character-related episodic stories that may overlap with each other.
During these prosperous times that predated recorded history, the Chaos Emeralds were first discovered and used by creatures who later ascended and became the original Mobian gods called the Ancient Walkers. The three Mobian gods watched over Mobius in the Virtual Zone even after the extermination of their kind.
However, when the darkest aspect of the Chaos Force mixed with the negative emotions of the planet's population and became a sentient, malevolent crystal known as the Twilight Shard, the planet's everlasting peace shattered. Empowered by conflict and their terrible emotional aftermaths, it consequentially attempted to plunge Mobius into an eternal darkness when it easily overpowered the Ancient Walkers.
With the Ancient Walkers struggling to defeat the embodiment of darkness, a hero that rose from humble beginnings was summoned and used the power of seven mystic gems to defeat the Twilight Shard, suppressing and sealing its malevolent power. The hero was dubbed the Golden Champion.
Knowledge about this legendary battle was thought to be lost throughout the generations that came after it. However, those who witnessed such battle had foretold that the malevolent crystal was not permanently defeated and would return, in the future, with the assistance of the mysterious and prophesied Dark One.
In modern-day Mobius, as a troubled hedgehog emerges and somehow obtains its ultimate power, the bright future of the planet becomes bleak and the tales of a green echidna begin to unfold...

Good afternoon. I'm Chames, also known as Chamesthehero, the author of the story.
Through sweat, blood, and tears, the first step towards completing my Sonic fanfiction is finally here! This awesome emotion you get after writing everything down is a mixture of fatigue and happiness. Such feeling of accomplishment is not something you experience every day. It was all worth it in the end.
The installment, Reign of Darkness, focuses on the theme of loneliness. Enduring the normalized horrors of the world, all characters have their ways of compensating for their solitude. Through different ways, everyone strives to be at peace with themselves. In the end, life is but one's search for happiness.
Unfortunately, in our world, it comes to no surprise the misfortune of others might be the happiness of some. If that is the case, then is it truly possible for everyone to be happy at the same time?
Let us all work hard in order to make such ideal world possible.
