Lydia's look

Sonic the Hedgehog and his team, The Sonic Heroes.

Cursed with an age-old Werehog curse since birth, she's been forced to hide her secret from society by seeking refuge in faraway cities under a different guise every time she has a transformation spell. She prefers to wear dark clothes, dark jewelry, eat junk foods and watch American Horror Story. She became fast friends with Sonic the Hedgehog and his team of super friends after saving them from the Dark Gaia's minions during one of her "Werehog Transformation spells". She is voiced by actress Amy Adams and her singing voice is by Amy Lee (lead singer of Evanescence).


Not much is known about her life except that her family's has been battling a actient Werehog curse since the medieval times after one of the ancestors defeated a villainous witch that placed a curse upon the hedgehog just before dying. Ever since then, some of Lydia's ancestors have had to go into hiding and maintain a sheltered yet somewhat happy life concealed from society. According to Lydia, the Werehog curse the villainous medieval witch cursed her ancestor with, can be passed down genetically through descendants of blood, affecting some (if not all) future generations of Lydia's family.

Escape From Eggman's Fortress

After being accepted into Sonic's team, shortly would she find herself in the most action packed (if mostly nocturnal) adventures and eventually danger. On the night of the destruction of Dr. Eggman's fortress (like the fortress in Sonic Spinball), Sonic and his friends managed to rescue Lydia from her captivity. However, for some reason, Lydia wanted to go back but she couldn't tell Sonic and his friends why. Lydia knew that if she did tell, there would be jeopardy. Sneaking back into Eggman's Fortress, she comes across a laboratory which contained several resting units and cryogenic chambers. Upon looking did she find a young fox inside resting for the small fox was none any older than a child's age. Rescuing the poor little fox, Lydia managed to get out of the lab safely before the security alarms went off. Soon Sonic and the team showed up and found Lydia running with the small little fox. Only something was different. "That's not Tails!" Sonic shouted. Lydia nodded her head in agreement with the blue hedgehog. All she could say was, "I know that's not Tails." Amy asked who the small fox was and Lydia dropped a bomb on them. "That's my daughter."

As the team's jaws dropped from this revelation, the fortress started collapsing and robots began storming the entry way but Sonic and the team managed to defeat every single one of them while carefully helping Lydia and her fox child out and away from the fortress. As the team were gathered in dust, coughing and having a group hug, they looked on in the distance as Eggman's fortress collapsed in its rubble. Then as the storm settled, Amy asked, "So...You have a kid?", causing everyone to smile and Lydia to place a loving hand upon her rescued child.
