Miles Prower, better known as 'Tails', is a 41 year old fox born on the day of Dr Robotnik's takeover of Mobotropolis. His father was a general in the army, and upon discovering Robotnik's plans, was roboticized. Since he was young, Tails has been at Sonic's side, helping him fight Dr. Eggman, the Iron Queen and King Shadow. Unbeknownst to him for many years, Tails was also destined to become the Chosen One who would cause the Great Harmony. Eventually, he drifted away from Sonic and married Mina Mongoose, and they had two children together, Skye and Melody. When Dr Eggman returned to fight the Kingdom, Tails took his family to Soleanna where they would be safe. He then became the Head of the Science Department, but moved back after Eggman's death at Knuckles' hands. Sonic had somehow vanished after this event, and Shadow became Mobius' hero. He soon became King and ruled with an iron fist, with Queen Sally at his side and the Dark Presence serving as his private enforcement group, led by Lien-Da. Tails participated in the war against them by using his technical expertise to create highly advanced precision machinery to assist the group. When King Sonic returned and Shadow was defeated by Lara-Su, Tails and his family settled down once more and relocated their home, but were soon involved in the war against the returned Iron Queen and her vast legion of servants and warriors.
Miles, son of Amadeus and Rosemary Prower, was born the same day as Dr. Robotnik's takeover of Mobotropolis. Just prior to Robotnik's Coup d'état, Amadeus had discovered the mad scientist's nefarious scheme. Unfortunately, he was thrown into the roboticizer before he was able to warn the kingdom. Rosemary was subsequently brought in by a SWATbot to also be roboticized, but just before the process occurred, the alien race known as the Bem transported the two foxes off world. This was unknown to everyone on Mobius until Sonic the Hedgehog uncovered the truth during his time in space. Miles had always assumed his parents died during Robotnik's takeover.
Miles was sent to the sanctuary of Knothole along with the majority of Mobotropolis' children, and was raised by Rosie and later Sally Acorn as the young princess got older, leading the young fox to call her "Aunt Sally" from time to time. By the age of 4, Miles had received his nickname "Tails" due to the fox's mysterious double tails.
Once he became old enough, Tails joined the other Freedom Fighters in their efforts against Robotnik. For all his technical knowledge, he was thought to be too inexperienced to participate in the more dangerous missions for some time. This eventually led him to embark on a solo adventure to the land of Downunda, where he worked together with the Downunda Freedom Fighters to defeat their arch-nemesis Crocbot. During his journey to this continent, he also confronted Octobot, whom he had defeated on a previous occasion. It was also during his time in Downunda that Tails met Athair, great-grandfather of Knuckles the Echidna, who revealed to Tails his destiny as the Chosen One, a being fated to reach divine status and become an even greater hero than Sonic and Knuckles. Explaining that greed and evil often spouted from desire of the Chaos Emeralds, Athair added that the Chosen One was destined to bring about something known as The Great Harmony.
As a Freedom Fighter, Tails assisted his friends in numerous occassions in stopping Dr. Ivo Robotnik and later Dr. Eggman. When Eggman was preparing to destroy both Knothole and Station Square with nuclear missiles, Tails managed to delay the coundown by distracting A.D.A.M. long enough for the others to destroy the battle ship which they would be fired from.
The Chosen One
Tails and Mammoth Mogul have battled on numerous occasions, the first time following Mogul's theft of the powers of Enerjak to become Master Mogul for the first time. Working together with Super Sonic, Hyper Knuckles, the other Freedom Fighters, the Chaotix, King Acorn's Secret Service, the Brotherhood of Guardians, Athair, and a few other allies, Turbo Tails was able to defeat Mogul by draining away his powers with the Chaos Syphon, creating the Master Emerald and trapping Mogul within it-at least until Dr. Eggman shattered it to feed the then monstrous Chaos.
Saving the Multiverse
Mogul, badly weakened by his imprisonment, used the embers of his power to strike a lethal blow against the Ancient Walkers, the deities who had long been his nemesis and who had made the prophecy of Tails' rise to divinity. Seeking power once again, Mogul captured Turbo Tails and held him prisoner when Turbo Tails was sent to fight Chaos Knuckles, creating a doppelganger of Tails to replace him so that no one would notice. Mogul's schemes were discovered by the doppelganger Tails and Sonic, and after a brief battle which weakened Mogul, the fake Tails vanished while the real one was set free. However, Mammoth Mogul secretly placed a post-hypnotic trigger in his young enemy's mind.
Unfortunately, Mogul obtained enough power to challenge Chaos Knuckles during the time he stole energy from Turbo Tails, resulting in the Guardian's death. Worse, when Knuckles returned from the afterlife, he came back without his powers and left the Chaos Force off balance, allowing Mogul to seize it and become Master Mogul once again. Using his near omnipotent abilities, Mogul proceeded to devastate the multiverse. Alerted to this threat by Zonic the Zone Cop, Tails joined with innumerable alternate versions of himself to become Titan Tails, who defeated Mogul and sealed him in his Chaos Emerald.
The Gathering of the Chaos Emeralds
Later, Tails was abducted by A.D.A.M., who intended to use Tails and Shadow the Hedgehog to collect every Chaos Emerald in the universe to give himself unimaginable power. However, A.D.A.M.'s plan was brought to a halt as Eggman woke him and Shadow up. Turbo Tails, working through intuition, had Super Shadow use his time-space warping abilities to access Zone of Silence; they then sent the collected Chaos Emeralds there, with Tails saying he hoped it would cause "something special." When Tails and Sonic went into the Zone later to retrieve an emerald, they were met by Feist, who gave them the grey Chaos Emerald composed of thousands of others-one of seven he had created-as thanks for them sending him the jewels in the first place. Thus, the Chaos Emeralds had been limited and hidden in the newly-created Special Zone, in part fulfilling the prophesized "Great Harmony".
Sonic vs. Tails
Later, Tails was reunited with his parents with the help of Sonic, Knuckles, and his uncle Merlin. He was then one of the few members of the Freedom Fighters to have escaped being captured by Eggman's forces during the assault on Knothole that resulted in the city's destruction, and assisted Sonic, NICOLE, Amy, and Knuckles in the ensuing rescue mission.
Unfortunately, Tails' tense relationship with Sonic deepened to an argument as to how they should proceed with the rescue. This stressed to the point of breaking as the pair found themselves on opposite sides of a schism in the Kingdom of Acorn, Tails supporting the side led by his father and Sonic remaining loyal to the House of Acorn. When Tails helped his mother break Amadeus out of jail, long suppressed hostility was released as he and Sonic fought with each other. Tails was quick to bring up his fury at Sonic's lack of sensitivity, and refused to explain it to the baffled Hedgehog since he felt that Sonic would probably just ignore what he was saying again. Finally, the young Fox revealed that his main dispute with Sonic was over Fiona Fox and Sonic's seeming dismissal of his feelings for her, and Sonic admitted that he had known about Tails' feelings and apologized, explaining that he had hoped that it would help Tails get over his crush. Reconciled, the two headed off to stop a duel between Amadeus and Elias Acorn, only to find out that Sally had beaten them to it. With his father returned to duty, his mother running for a seat on the new ruling council, and his friendship with Sonic restored, Tails' life seemed destined to make an upturn.
