Erina Summers is a young hedgefox, who constantly seems to move from place to place, assisting in fights but never actually allying herself with anyone.

Erina is a girl of moderate height and muscle mass, covered all-over in coarse brown fur. While she may seem rather typical, Erina has deep blue eyes and thick, shoulder-length black hair.
Due to her large amounts of time in the desert, Erina has taken to wearing desert colors as a form of camouflage. This includes a red-orange jacket lined in red, a black shirt, dark blue jeans, black socks and boots, and a gold belt around her waist.
Erina was born in Wachapan, a town within the borders of Spagonia... just. On the outskirts of a desert, the mansion was one of the permanent homes of the Summers Family, a party-loving group who constantly traveled from country to country. As a youngster, the tracking of summer became one of the big things in Erina's life, guiding her into following her family in becoming a nomad-like traveler.
Unfortunately, Erina's traveling with her family soon came to a rapid halt when Egg Pawns attacked her family in a small wooded area. As it turned out, many in her family used their traveling as a cover for vigilante activities, assisting G.U.N. and Freedom Fighter teams against Eggman and other enemy units, but never staying in a single place long enough to form an alliance with the group. With this knowledge out, her father and uncles began her training. Hand to hand combat. Her choice of weapon, a Hammerforge Industries weaponized sandblaster. Piloting. Use of her three elements. Use of her genetic ability, Sand Veil. By her eighteenth birthday, Erina was more than prepared to begin her vigilante lifestyle.
One of her early runs had her emerge out in the Great Mobian Desert. For the most part, it was empty. Then, noise. Explosions, and the sound of steel on steel. Excited, Erina dashed to the noises...and found a lance of G.U.N. powered troopers, pinned down under fire from a number of Eggman robots, with more arriving by the minute. Annoyed and exhilarated at the same time, Erina triggered a sandstorm to activate her genetic ability, and then went on the warpath. Her weaponized sandblaster stripped armor from robots, leaving them exposed to her usage of water and acids on vulnerable circuitry. A small Earthquake knocked 'bots to the ground, where they proved easy targets for the well-trained soldiers. Finally, she found herself back-to-back with one of the soldiers, armed with a black, glittering claymore. No bots managed to get near them, with her sandblaster knocking armor off their torso, while his blade easily sliced clean through robotic bodies. Five minutes later, it was all over. No bots remained active. The soldier she had fought alongside removed his helmet and complimented her, and she was astonished by his accent, so very clearly Spagonian. He referred to himself as Lance Commander Lei Hedgehog, and promised that next time the two met, he would take her out for a drink, despite the fact that she was five years his junior.
Back in Spagonia, Lei proved true to his word, and the two began dating. However, Lei's calm personality contrasted with his violent hatred of thugs, while Erina was almost impossible for him to contact half the time, due to her traveling. Even so, the two were still 'dating' three years later, although both admitted that their relationship wasn't going to be a serious one.
As a member of the Summers Family, Erina possesses the genetic ability Sand Veil. One of the more common genetic abilities on Mobius, whenever Erina is exposed to a sandstorm, she becomes much more agile and capable of dodging attacks. In addition, Erina is a powerful fighter, using three elements (Earth, Water and Poison) effectively in combat. However, Earth is her primary combat power, due to her genetic ability.
Unusually, Erina has been known to use either her acidic or water-based powers to liquify metal, allowing her a greater threat level to machinery normally untouchable to her powers. This skill is unexplained by her.
Weapon-wise, Erina wields a Hammerforge Industries SN-5 Sandblaster. This tool is similar enough to an industrial sandblaster in use and effect, although in combat is counted as an Earth-elemental equivalent to a flamethrower or water cannon. In combat, Erina's skill with the sandblaster is even greater than most consider normal, due to a natural aptitude for the bulky, cumbersome weapon. However, she has also been known to work as a sniper, using a rare CH-1 Harmonic Sniper Rifle, another Hammerforge Industries weapon, based around the idea of a resonance beam. The beam basically is hard to track, and takes only a single pulse to disable and debilitate a single organic target by inducing a headache, or disable a robot through destroying the processor with a concentrated burst of sound.
However, outside of sandstorms, Erina has nowhere near the power or skill to last in a prolonged battle against a stronger foe, and has limited skill in dealing with Energy-based attacks.

Erina, a trained pilot, typically flies a Hammerforge Industries NP-100 Transport Helicopter, a civilian aircraft owned by her family. However, typically she flies this unit with a copilot, preferring not to fly the advanced aircraft solo.
With the constant urge to travel and experience new things, Erina is rarely in the same place for more than a week, unless it's home. In those cases, it's typically a rest after a fight, which can last for a few months.
Erina has a greatly defined hatred of snow, and of winter in general. However, in the few cases she is seen in snow, she often covers the majority of her body in clothing, making it hard to identify her.
