"My name is Wildcat the Bumblecat. You hurt my friend. Prepare to die." --Wildcat the Bumblecat
Wildcat the Bumblecat is a character created by User:NaomiK.
(Quick note: This page was copied from the Wildcat page at sonic-fan-character.wikia.com, and therefore the links will be incorrect.)
I am open to criticism on this character. If you have constructive criticism to share, you may do so. However, I will not tolerate flaming.
Wildcat's real name is Maria. She calls herself Wildcat because she finds the name "Maria" too girly.
She is fifteen years old. Her birthday is in May (I forget the exact date).
She is female.
Her alignment is Chaotic Good.
She is a Bumblecat (3/4 Cat, 1/4 Bumblebee). Her father was a Beecat (1/2 Cat, 1/2 Bumblebee) and her mother was fully Cat. She is often mislabeled as a "beecat", which annoys her greatly.
She currently identifies as aromantic/asexual, which means that she feels no romantic or sexual attraction toward anyone of any gender.
She does not have a voice actor. However, User:MissAquaAnime did a voice act for her here:
"Wildcat" by almost everyone.
"Wild" by her friends.
"Kitty" by Shadow the Hedgehog
"Beecat" by some of her enemies.
"Freak" by random passerby who think she's weird
Wildcat has a bit of a mis-matched appearance due to her hybrid species and the fact that she is a teenager and going through a lot of bodily changes.
She has mostly brown, long fur. Her belly pattern, the inside of her ears and part of her tail have black, longer fur. She has a white, fluffy muzzle, and a white stripe along her tail that makes her look slightly like a skunk.
The odd appearance of her tail is due to the fact that she is a teenager, and going through an appearance change. As a child, her tail, belly pattern and the insides of her ears were completely white. She is currently in the process of her white fur turning completely black.
She has black, fluffy, very long hair. It appears to not have been trimmed or cut in a while.
She has emerald-green eyes with long lashes, much to her disgust. She has a typical cat nose.
She has long, retractable claws in both hands and feet; one of the perks of being mostly cat. She also has cat fangs.
She has only two Bee attributes; bee wings and abnormally small size. She is 2', 4" tall, about a foot shorter than the average Mobian. She is also abnormally light, even for someone her height. She weighs 44 pounds.
She has very slight curves, which is to be expected for someone her age.
Wildcat is fairly happy with her appearance. She dislikes her long fur somewhat, as it tends to collect dirt, mud and other filth. The thing she dislikes most about her appearance is her height and weight, which give her a definite disadvantage in hand-to-hand combat, especially if she has been tackled by an attacker. In addition, being so small and weak impairs her ability to fly while carrying a load.
In some ways, she dislikes her "pretty" and "cute" appearance, mostly because it tends to attract unwanted attention from unwanted guys, but she does enjoy the fact that her opponents often underestimate a "small, pretty, cute girl", which she can use to her advantage.
Although Wildcat doesn't really care about keeping up her appearance and generally goes for whatever is practical, her one vanity is her long hair. Short hair would probably be more practical than long hair, but Wildcat likes her hair to be very long. However, she does put it in a high ponytail at times to keep it out of the way.
Wildcat is generally fearless, sarcastic, aloof and tomboyish. She despises flirting, finding it ridiculous and completely pointless. She is also fiercely loyal to her friends, often valuing their lives over hers. She can be very egotistic, to the point of being too proud to call for help even if she needs it. She is (or at least acts) overconfident and perhaps trusts in her own abilities too much. She has called herself "Eggman's Ultimate Success"; more proof of her ego.
She enjoys teasing people and making them upset because it makes her feel powerful. Even though she doesn't usually tease her friends, most of her friends are pretty tough people and can withstand her teasing.
She does, however, have a softer side. People who earn her trust will learn that she's been deeply scarred by her past, and isn't really as fearless as she appears.
She is extremely pyrophobic (afraid of fire). Even the mention of fire, or a picture of fire, can make her upset and scared. If she is near a controlled fire such as a candle, campfire, or torch, she will freak out and try to get away as soon as possible. If she is in or near a huge, uncontrolled fire such as a forest fire, she will become so afraid that she will freeze up and be unable to escape or move unless someone gets her away from the fire.
Lying on clouds (yes, she can lie on clouds)
The color green
People who hate hybrids (Wildcat: It's racist!)
People who intimidate her
"My name is Wildcat the Bumblecat. You hurt my friend. Prepare to die." (Princess Bride reference)
"I think romance messes with people's heads."
"That's Bumblecat, not Beecat! Why can't anyone get my species right?"
"Is that your answer to everything? Kissing?"
"I act this way to survive, genius."
"Sonic, I've never kissed anyone in my life." (After Sonic the Hedgehog was teasing her about her kissing Knuckles the Echidna)
"I'm not a freak!"
"Meow-bzz." (Trying to come up with a good noise for cat-bee hybrids to make)
Wildcat has only one surviving relative; Charmy Bee; her second cousin. Her parents died (or so she thinks) when she was three, after Dr. Eggman purposely knocked a house on top of them. She has no known siblings or other relatives.
Saffy has been Wildcat's best friend since they were little kids. Despise their occasional arguments (usually about Saffy's boyfriend, Shadow the Hedgehog), they get along pretty well. They are the same team; Team Strong.
Samantha is another of Wildcat's best friends. They met fairly recently, but became fast friends. They are on the same team; Team Strong.
Knuckles the Echidna
Knuckles and Wildcat have been accused of dating/loving each other, but Wildcat insists that she only loves Knuckles platonically (as a friend). Knuckles' feelings on the subject are unknown. They are on no teams together.
In addition, Wildcat is friends with the following characters:
Wildcat and Elizabeth get along, although Elizabeth tends to be annoyed by Wildcat's procrastination on missions. (They went on a mission to kill Scourge the Hedgehog, but Wildcat screwed up the mission by stealing Scourge's clothes and running off with them.) They don't see each other much because of Elizabeth's princessly duties and personal life.
Naturally, Nightshade and Wildcat hate each other; being opposites.

Sullivan the Seal (FC)
Other obscure bad guys
Wildcat currently identifies as aromantic/asexual. Therefore, she has had no real mutual romantic relationships. However, she is often accused of dating/loving/having a crush on Knuckles the Echidna. She has hugged Knuckles once or twice, but only because she was very upset.
For the first three years of her life, Wildcat had only one ability; to claw people with her claws. She was also extremely flexible, but didn't know it at the time. She had bee wings, but they were useless since the Cat part of her DNA made her too heavy to fly.
After Dr. Eggman decided to use her as a test subject, Wildcat slowly gained more powers through the addition of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Blaze's DNA. She did not know this, however, until Dr. Eggman pretended to give her powers (which she had all along) with a harmless burst of light. She discovered that she was faster, stronger and could actually fly. She also discovered her innate flexibility.
She is somewhat of a Speed type. She is faster than most non-Speed types, but slower than most Speed types. Her stamina is also pretty bad, meaning she can only run at top speed for a minute or two.
She is pretty powerful, but her main power is in her feet. Her arms are sort-of strong, but no stronger than a non-Power type with training. She identifies as a Power type.
She can also fly, making her somewhat of a Fly type. However, her wings are extremely susceptible to damage, and she cannot fly easily while carrying a load other than herself.
She is a bit of an acrobat, and tends to do handsprings and cartwheels as part of her fighting routine. However, she has not been professionally taught, and has a tendency to occasionally break her limbs (by accident, of course) during fights.
She is (usually) very good with computers, making her a fairly good hacker. However, she is pretty stupid about other scholarly things. She struggles with reading, writing, art, social studies, history... etc.
Somehow, she can stand, sit or lie on clouds as though they are solid. However, this isn't really a power.
Also see "Other Forms" below, which may count as powers depending on your definition of "powers".
Wildcat has a couple of "good forms" that most Sonic Characters have.
Normal: Her regular form with regular abilities.
Super: Her super form, activated by the Seven Chaos Emeralds.
Due to being experimented on by Doctor Eggman, Wildcat has a host of emotion-powered forms. Because she's literally terrified of changing into one of her other forms, Wildcat tries to keep a tight rein on her emotions and not let herself change.
Hyper: When she gets angry, her eyes turn red, a shield of spikes appears and she begins relentlessly attacking whoever angered her. She can create and control spikes in this form. However, her form can easily get out of hand, and she has injured her friends by accident multiple times. She considers it a curse rather than a blessing.
Hypo: When she gets sad or afraid, her eyes turn blue and her powers become only half as effective. Instead, her healing rate goes up by 100 percent. She considers it a curse because it makes her weaker.
Inferno: When she gets extremely panicked, her eyes turn purple, and her entire body bursts into purple flame. She can create and control fire in this form, but, if she stays panicked long enough, the form will actually burn her to death, as she is not resistant to her own flame. If she dies in this form, a burst of purple flame will obliterate anything or anyone nearby. She considers it a curse because it can kill her and others.
Wildcat's original outfit was a green tunic with a white sash, green pants and green shoes with spikes and a vertical white stripe. After a while, she changed her outfit to a green V-neck, green flared pants and green platform shoes with retractable spikes.
Originally, Wildcat's name was Wildgirl, and she was a magical fairy-cat thing with a Chaos Emerald shard embedded in her skin. (And she was a Mary-Sue, I think. Ouch.)
Wildcat and Saffy used to be the same age, but since Saffy's creator wanted her to be sixteen, and Wildcat's creator wanted her to be fifteen, their ages were changed.
Wildcat hates the color pink. She also hates dresses and skirts, finding them very inefficient.
Wildcat hates the taste of meat, but since cats cannot survive without meat, she chokes down some every once in a while.
Wildcat purrs when she is happy, but she also purrs when she is in pain or upset to comfort herself.
Initially, Wildcat's design was based after Sally Acorn and Hershey Cat's designs, having hair similar to Sally's and have a color scheme rather like Hershey's. However, her design was tweaked later so that they hardly resemble each other any more.
Wildcat's fur, eyes and clothes used to be less saturated than the colors they are now.
Wildcat has threatened to hit people with her long hair. However, this is more of a joke than anything else.
Ordinarily, you'd think a past would start at or after the birth of the person in question. But, so everything is explained, let's start before Wildcat was born. You'd also think that we would begin with her family, or how she was born. But instead, let's begin with her friend, Saffy the Hedgehog.
Saffy's parents-to-be were overjoyed when her mom-to-be got pregnant with a girl. However, before Saffy could be born, Dr. Eggman decided to use her as a test subject. Her parents had no powers, and he suspected that Saffy would not have any powers either. He wanted a blank slate to work with in his tests. So, in preparation for further experiments, he focused a ray on her mother that would change Saffy's DNA. It did, and little Saffy was born with a sapphire in her forehead.
Her parents were confused, but the doctors examined the strange sapphire and concluded that it was not dangerous and would cause no problems. So they took Saffy home and raised her for about a year.
Then, their long-time friends, Tony and Natalie, had a baby girl. She was born with tiny bee wings due to her Bee DNA. They named her Maria.
Saffy and Maria hit it off almost immediately. They played games with each other whenever they could. Sometime during these games, Saffy came up with a long, elaborate nickname for Maria that was something like, "Wild-kitty-tiger-cat". Maria found the name too hard to say, and shortened it to "Wildcat". After that, Saffy always referred to Maria as Wildcat.
Dr. Eggman had been watching his test subject, Saffy, and had spotted Wildcat as well. He thought her hybrid DNA might make her an ideal test subject, and prepared to capture them both.
When Saffy was four and Wildcat was three, Wildcat's parents brought her over to Saffy's house for a playdate, just as they had done many times before. This time, however, Dr. Eggman decided that it was time to collect his test subjects. He sent a bomber plane (Egg Bomber?) over Saffy's house and bombed the house, knocking it down on their parents just as Saffy and Wildcat escaped the building.
Saffy and Wildcat, still in shock from the bombing, ran from the house to a nearby hill. There, Dr. Eggman collected them and knocked them out with sleeping gas.
In Dr. Eggman's Base
When they woke up, they found themselves in a place that the other occupants dubbed "the Children's Room". They also gathered that they were somewhere inside Dr. Eggman's base, and that their parents were nowhere to be found. Slowly, over the course of years, they got used to their new existence in the depths of Dr. Eggman's base. The other kids weren't all nice, and sometimes Wildcat and Saffy got beaten up by older bullies.
Meanwhile, unknown to Saffy and Wildcat, Dr. Eggman was using them as test subjects. He would knock them out with sleeping gas and sneak them away from the room whenever he wanted to test with them. None of the other children noticed, probably because they didn't really care. Then he would test on them to his heart's content. He put some of Silver's DNA in Saffy, and Sonic, Tails' and Knuckles' DNA in Wildcat. He was also trying to find a way to control them both without turning them into robots. He tried using a mind-control machine on Saffy, but something about her unique DNA confused it, so it didn't work.
Next, Dr. Eggman changed and added to Wildcat's DNA to cause certain reactions when she got emotional. He also implanted nano-machines underneath her skin so that he could effectively control her emotions. He hoped to find a form of "control" by changing her emotions to provoke certain reactions. But, there was no way for him to know for sure if it had worked or not. He had to let them know that they had powers.
One day, he took Wildcat and Saffy out of the Children's Room, making sure they were awake to see it. Then he put them in a machine and zapped them with a harmless burst of light. He then threatened Saffy and Wildcat got angry, turning Hyper and destroying all of the nearby robots. Satisfied with his success, he put them in a cell by themselves to discover their new powers.
Soon, Saffy discovered that she could pick up things using her mind, and Wildcat found that she could fly, run faster, and kick harder. They promptly used their new skills to escape the base. Dr. Eggman let them. He figured it would be interesting to watch their behavior while they thought they were free.
A Strange New World
Wildcat and Saffy successfully escaped the base, but due to Wildcat's excitement, she and Saffy got separated at a fork in the road. Saffy met Team Dark, while Wildcat met Team Sonic. The two unsuccessfully ran around trying to find each other, but somehow, whenever they arrived somewhere, they had just missed the other. During this time, they met Streak the Hedgehog, Sonic Jr. the Hedgehog, Rose the Fox and Angel the Hedgehog. Finally, they were reunited in Knothole Village.
Then, they met Sapphire the Cat while blasting off in a rocket ship. After barely getting back to Mobius (since Knuckles the Echidna accidentally ejected them into space), the three became fast friends. While on an adventure in a dungeon, Saffy met Samantha the Dragon-Cat. They escaped the dungeon and formed a team together with Wildcat.
