Primary Characters

This small list is a list of characters making recurring appearances in the saga. "Sonic and Co." and "The gang" refers to the first six characters collectively.

Powerful echidna. Hot-tempered and in this story's case, has a tendency to swear often. (Steven Jay Blum)

A girl who admires Sonic. But for some reason, this fact is not stressed a lot, despite being with him for the remainder of the saga and the fact she is stranded along with him. (Monica Rial)

A cute and sweet little girl rabbit who is always followed by her pet chao, Cheese. (Jessica Boone)

Cream's pet chao. Cheese is very strong, despite being so small. He is locked up in a cage by Lerich in the first issue, so he wouldn't be able to protect Cream. (Jessica Boone)

Lerich's neighbor, and a good friend to Sonic and Co. (Cynthiya Cranz)

Lerich is despicable, cruel and sadistic. He loves nothing more than to torture living things and make them feel miserable. After the gang escapes from him and he fails to make them his slaves, he follows them everywhere, determined to kill them all. (Chuck Huber)

Secondary Characters

Epiphany and Cain

Epiphany and Cain are introduced in Spellbound and sides with them during their first unpleasant encounter with Caterina, who is a student in a rival house. (Kate Oxley, Johnny Yong Bosch)


Tani is a friend of Epiphany and Cain. He was first seen in the Icy Ridge. There are a few hints that he may have a crush on Amy. In his first appearance, he wears a cloak similar to the ones worn by the Organization XIII members of Kingdom Hearts 2. (Greg Ayres)

Taffy Motta

He first appears in Sour Encounters. His ex-girlfriend is Irrika Vexus, who decided to adopt the furry fivesome because anthropomorphs were "cool." Taffy is kind to the gang but completely submissive to Irrika and other characters due to his distaste for arguments. The phrase he consistently uses throughout is "Well, I don't like to argue..." He is less of a follower of fashion than Irrika and dislikes the idea of buying superfluous items simply because they are "cool." He is rich and successful, but this position is abused by Irrika. At the end of the novel, Irrika leaves Taffy to become a member of Lerich's villain group and Lerich's girlfriend. In keeping with his timid and nonconfrontational disposition, Taffy tells Sonic and Co. that he wants to take them "far, far away from here, away from Lerich." They refuse because they would rather find Epiphany and Cain and go after Lerich. (Sonny Strait)

Caterina's friends

Caterina had at least four friends in the third issue, who also think Sonic and Co. are "freaks". They included a small girl with dark hair tied into a ponitail, a boy with blond hair and two boys with dark hair. They only make appearances in Spellbound.
