Rutna is Crimson the Echidna's and Lien Da's daughter as well foster niece to Knuckles.
Rutna is a young female echidna who share traits of her parents, having red fur, Crimson's blue eyes and dreadlocks. She wears grey shoes, white tanktop, green belt, blue skirt with a diamond shape with pink and white bolt pattern. She got golden gauntlets and white gloves.
Unlike her parents, she is not as sadistic, ruthless or uncaring as them; she is on the opposite side, she is caring, rude at times and shows mercy.

Instead she often tries to share a family bond with her foster uncle Knuckles, viewing him as a father-figure.
