— Taunting Phoenix, Unknown Story(unreleased)
Dr. Starline is a character from the IDW Sonic the Hedgehog comics, who is set to appear in an upcoming story of The Legend of Fox the Brave. He is a Mobian platypus apparently obsessed with studying Eggman, as he currently seeks to restore the amnesiac doctor to the head of the Eggman Empire. In The Legend of Fox the Brave, he is also obsessed with Phoenix the Fox's ability to see and speak with the Spirits in the Stars, and with studying the bloodline of Redstone the Fox.
Starline retains his appearance from the IDW Sonic the Hedgehog comics.
Starline retains his personality from the IDW Sonic the Hedgehog comics.
So far, he appears to be a very shady person with an interest in Dr. Eggman and Phoenix the Fox, as he wants to restore an amnesiac Eggman to the head of the Eggman Empire, and is intrigued by Phoenix's ability to "see what cannot be seen". He also seems to be a cruel and ruthless person, as-in the comics-he was willing to put Eggman through an evidently painful procedure to restore his memories, and he "punished" Phoenix via electrocution for his refusal to comply to his demands.
Similarly to Dr. Finitevus, Starline possesses an incredible intellect. He also appears capable of using Eggman's technology, as in IDW Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 11, he used it to attempt to restore Eggman's memories(albeit painfully), and in The Legend of Fox the Brave, after having Phoenix kidnapped, he uses the technology to torture the fox by electrocuting him if he refused to comply to the doctor's demands.
Starline is the first IDW comics character to be introduced into The Legend of Fox the Brave, as up until now, the only Sonic the Hedgehog characters canon to the series outside of the games are from the Archie comics.
