|Political Alignment and Abilities|
Mystic Monkey was created for more of the purpose as a fan avatar than a character, however as time went by he was shared simular history with me and after a time developed his own stories and became more independant. He is still favourite fan character of mine and widely recognised as him.
Mystic is a forest monkey with dreams on becomming an hero just like his own hero Sonic the Hedgehog who he is a big fan of and greatly admires. (The resemblence is coincidental.) however what he lacks in speed and defensive hairstyle he makes up with his sword and agility. An expert in the art of swordplay as well as a bit of a philosopher.
Originally he was born in Grand Kingdom but grew up on South Island but this has been recently changed to that he has always grown up at Grand Kingdom. South Island, especially Green Hill Zone being a sort of holiday location or ideal paradice to him.
Conception and creationEdit
- "I once had a Dreamcast that was online and my brothers helped me with online chatting and went by the name "Mystic Monkey". It's really my brothers original name and they use it now and again themselves but I use it much more frequently. Psycotix helped with character design ages back by making a sprite of him and I developed the character ever since. Since I wa saround Sonic's age back then, having syncronising my age with Mystic didn't seem a bad idea, however as I am now in my 20's, decided that Mystics age should remain a mystery and that he should always be a teen."

Mystic is a SegaSonic fan character, being from the same Earth as the original Sonic and where his games take place. However unlike Sonic or his friends, Mystic of yet does not have any games of his own (fan games) but does have stories of his experiance of life on Sonic's world.
The American comics are not sold in UK, thus I don't really know enough about the story to make an Archieversion of Mystic. But of recently, ideas of making a Mystic Monkey based on these comics come to mind.
While this version lives in Mobius Prime just like the majority of the characters, he is actually an immigrant from another zone. He found his way from his Mobius through the Ring of Eternity and ended up on a new Mobius. While Sonic the Hedgehog has been a life long hero to him and the reason why he was a Freedom Fighter to begin with, the Sonic he knew didn't see much of him not knowing that he wanted his recognition as a Freedom Fighter and eventually Mystic found dissapointment in him. The Sonic he met restored his faith and prefered to stay as a Freedom Fighter of this world than return home.
His text is written in British English which is often regarded as a faint accent unlike Antoine D’Coolette thick french accent. But like Antoine they are both sword wielders and antoine perhaps be his tutor. Also friendship with Mina Mongoose (with hints of a one-sided romance to her).
Mystic Monkey comes from Grand Kingdom, growing up at the Forest Zone under the care of his mother Clarity the Monkey at the "Town Stage" of the Forest Zone. At times Mystic and his mother go to South Island for holidays.
Tidal the MerhogEdit
To begin with Mystic didn't had much confident at a young age but was very curious. However he was soon lost and alone. However someone else was also lost, a Merhog named Tidal. Tidal wanted to help the scared monkey... but eventually they got even more lost. Mystic had enough and with Tidals help manage to find there way home. Mystic earned a sense of confidence and his first new friend Tidal the Merhog. Tidal remained at Misty Lake but the two friends meet regularly Especially at Bridge Zone when on South Island.
Mystic had a sword of his own but never knew how to properly wield it. The sword was mostly for decoration but Mystic wanted to learn how to use it and to be as quick and as awsome as his hero Sonic the Hedgehog whom he have heard about in the news and collecting Sega merchandice of him. He eventually found a teacher who was willing to teach him in the art of sword fighting. Mystic developed a close relationship to his teacher. The teacher is never seen or actually named, only Mystic knows who he is while the mysterious blade master is off-screen.

While Mystic explored the Forest Zone, his first experiance with the actual outside world was when Nack the Weasel (also known as Fang the Sniper) visited Grand Kingdom in order to retrieve the sword of Mystic's teacher. Nack killed Mystic's teacher and took the blade due to the value of the sword. Against his mother's wishes he still went off on his first adventure to follow after Nack. On his journey he had the honour of meeting heroes he had always admire such as Sonic and learnt many things. He had many fights with Nack as well as becoming a problem to the terrorist Dr. Robotnik. Willing to help Sonic and those who needed him and eventually defeating Nack in battle. Instead of killing him all he wanted back was his blade masters sword and returns to Grand Kingdom with it to use as a grave marker.
Mystic was once friends with Turbo the Porcupine, Fang the Fox and Pooty the Echidna. These three were Psycotix, a team of friends who like to have comical adventures exploring around island but unlike Mystic, Psycotix is a neutral team of friends, not for heroics, however Mystic became good friends and member of Psycotix having comical adventures and learning how to mess and take advantage to the gameplay elements of Sonic's world.
- Psycotix is not fan fictional from me, They are my friends fan characters who permit me for fanfiction use. (Unless they want me to change something writeen about them here!)
- Main article: Black Emerald
One of Mystic's dangerous enemies was Eggman Nega (Who is now more portait as a alchemist from the future than a scientist). This was because Eggman Nega needed Mystic himself as a component for creating a Chaos Emerald entirely out of negative properties so that it only grants negative energy. This resulted in granting Mystic 2 seperate Super transformation of Holy Mystic and Evil Mystic. While not as frequent nemesis as Sonic is to Robotnik, Mystic still hates Eggman Nega and willing to help Silver and Blaze to fight against the evil alchemist.
Psycotix located at Westside Island with a "base" in Aquatic Ruin Zone which is pretty much a tripped out abandoned ruin with comforts. Mystic who has left to a life as an Adventurer to hone his skills as a swordsman and a hero, however decided to stay with his mates in Aquatic Ruins where he had developed a brotherly friendship with Psycotix latest member Pulse the Hedgehog, a mysterious hedgehog Turbo litually fished out of the waters of Aqua Ruin Zone when he went fishing. The friendship between Pulse and Mystic became so close that he defended him when Pulse was accused of stealing a Chaos Emerald that Psycotix was trusted to safeguard. Appauled by Turbo's judgement he left Psycotix to find Pulse and discovered that it was Pulse evil double Vein that stole the emerald. Mystic, Pulse as well as friends old and new such as Tidal the Merhog whom he knew since Grand Kingdom, Swifty the Fox and her sister Windy the Fox and Alexiel the Hedgehog. However Pulse mysteriously dissapeared without anyone noticing causing the group to crumble. Though Mystic is still in contact with most of his friends, he now adventures alone but still acompany by friends now and again.
The team was original known as "Team Destanu" for whatever reason and now it's retconned as Team EN?GMA with hopes for Mystic to lead a new team of fan characters.
These days Mystic travels. Throughout his adventures he has helped people who need a hero and met other friends and heroes (both fan characters and canon). He hopes to be a reconised hero just like Sonic is and is willing to help him loyaly if he asked. Because of his heroism he is an enemy of the Eggman Empire, fighting evil robots as well as villains. Despite being enemy to Dr. Eggman he respects him as a villain as well as by his name "Dr. Robotnik".
His mother now lives in Green Hill Zone, which is paradice to her. As a thoughtful son, Mystic still visits her.
Mystic usually takes part in dueling tournaments, usually the kind with Sword VS Sword. Mystic also considers events he is sometimes invited too. Mystic doesn't usually take part in foot racing though since he is uncomfortable with not being as fast as other heroes.
It is only recently Mystic took up an interest in Extreme Gear and wants to participate in the upcomming EX World Grand Prix (Sonic Free Riders). He stayed at Resort Island until the tournament where he trained on the island track (as well as Radical City, Regal Ruin and Reactive Factory). He was denied to participate in the EX World Grand Prix due to expenses.
- (Production story)
Upset over the destruction he laid as Evil Mystic, Mystic decides that if he cannot have full control over his severed superforms, he should be rid of them. This lead him to the Arthurian Realm where the game Sonic & the Black Knight takes place. Here he meet Caliburn the Sword who takes him as a knave to be knight and to master the conflicting light and darkness in his heart. He must go on a quest to find the Seven World Rings.
(The idea for this adventure is that each ring helps him overcome personal problems and issues that trouble him about his past and himself. This adventure may conclude to the WIP superform Ultima Mystic where his "scars" have healed.)
To date Mystic has not appeared in any games, fan or other. However the characters has been seen throughout the internet (Especialy the Sonic Fan Community) as "my" avatar and second identidy. However their is different versions of Mystic Monkey for Storybook identidies as well as plans for an Archie version of Mystic with a much different backstory than his canon story.
He is planned to appear in his own game Mystic Monkey however this game maybe canceled.
Mystic is a kind hearted guy who learned from heroes such as Sonic about the importance of freedom and responsability, however living a sheltered life didn't give him much experiance of the world outside Grand Kingdom. He later learned that general people have there faults but despite misanthopic ideas he is willing, as a hero to defend all that need his help.
It is Mystic's goal to become a hero just like Sonic and his friends. While he is not as fast or got any particular abilities, his skills with his sword and agility gives him the edge to keep up with the expectations to become a hero, even willing to put his life on the line when others are just in trouble, no matter the cost.
Another desire of his which he usually keeps to himself, is to be a modern Knight of the Round Table. However even he does not expect this accomplishment since the stories of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table are just legends. That and because he does not consider himself "holy" enough to be one, since he is atheist.
Of course, the most noticeable of Mystic's dispositional characteristics is his Napoleonic denial of his muridae resemblence. Even in moments of relative composure, any and all references to his apperance cause him to violently lose control of his emotions and lash out both verbally and physically. Distinctive to these outbursts is Mystic's tendency to take even the most casual mention of his muraidae apperance as a gross insult and interpret it exaggeratedly, mistaking words as simple as "rodent", "rat" or "mouse" and the like. Those unfortunate to mistake him for any sort of rodent are fated to suffer one of his vindictive tantrums. One of the major causes of this mistake it his nose, an inherit trait not common among his monkey species. Mystic, despite hating to be mistaken for a rodent, believe it could be he might have some hybrid blood in him from an ancestor who could of been rodentia but he is not sure and prefers to deny this. Other than that he is not sure why he has a perched nose nor but does not care since he is happy with who he is.
Skills and AbilitiesEdit
Mystic does not have any special abilities or powers that makes him stands out such as usual catagorised Speed, Power or Fly (Though he counts as a speed type character). Mystic is also unable to use Chaos Powers (besides premature Super transformation). What Mystic lacks in special powers he makes up for blade, intellect and skill. Being a fan of Sonic makes him improvise to keep up, especially in defense such as using his sword to attack instead of an effective hairstyle. He does posess one mysteirous ability he is not aware of which allows him to achieve either of two powerful forms.
Throughout his travels Mystic has trained in the art of the sword as well as learning different forms of sword arts from his travels through different places and cultures. Everything new he learns he applies and thus has a sort of mixed formed, with his original swordsmanship he picked up from his master.
A skill that is second nature to Mystic, being that he is a monkey. Freerunning is a form of urban acrobatics in which participants, known as free runners or traceurs, use the city and rural landscape to perform movements through its structures. It incorporates efficient movements from parkour, adds aesthetic vaults and other acrobatics, such as tricking and street stunts, creating an athletic and aesthetically pleasing way of moving. It is commonly practiced at gymnasiums and in urban areas that are cluttered with obstacles.
Simular to Chaos Control, Mystic's extensive training with the sword and inspiration of speed has tempered his reflex to such an extent that he is able to slow down time for himself. However, he can only do this during the heat of battle which is when he can use this skill to deflect bullets and especially useful when he wants to attack living foes without actually causing serious damage to them. This ability is named after the visual special effect: Bullet time and this is what the ability itself looks like when Mystic uses this ability.
Long Lost Light of the Sacred Sword
When Mystic is with Caliburn the Sword as his weapon, Mystic can summon a bright golden pillar of light over him which can turn Caliburn into Excalibur. The light will only come to him when he shows great valor. The light comes from the Sacred Swords which reside in Grand Kingdom mythology.
- Main article: Holy Mystic & Evil Mystic
The only chaos embued power Mystic is capable of just like Sonic and other heroes he admired that can turn into super heroes. He could become an angelic like being. However consequence is that he could also become an insane demonic entidy. Eitherway the transformation is executed just like other super transformations, the seven Chaos Emeralds. (Also 50 rings to sustain the form.)
Why a sword?Edit
He has a sword because he lacks a natual defence that Sonic and his friends have, especially when it comes to something as simple as a Spin Attack. Usually characters like Hedgehogs or Echidnas have spines which is their natual defences and with such speed these defence can become offense in attacks. Mystic lacks such defence which he requires a weapon to make up for this. Instead of a more practical weapon like a gun, he chosen the sword as a favoured weapon that he is familiar with.
Mystic is trained in Swordsmanship, especially different styles from his travels. These are the weapons he uses. Like Amy Rose with her Piko Piko Hammer, he is able to carry a sword on himself or to have his hands free, with his tail.
Best description of his own sword is it's simplicity. It resembles the Clarent, which is just an old rusty sword used by Sonic in Sonic and the Black Knight. However unlikes Sonic's training sword, Mystic's sword is in a much better and cared for condition making it good for all his battles. It was originally an ornamental, yet rather ancient sword made in Grand Kingdom.
This is Mystic's default weapon.
- Main article: Holy Mystic & Evil Mystic
A sword made out of chaos energy that flows from Mystic's arm forming a blade of energy from his hand. Depending what kind of chaos energy that Mystic has absorbed it can come in two colours. Evil Mystic uses a black Chaos Reaver while Holy Mystic uses a white one.
This is Holy or Evil Mystic's default weapon as regular Mystic is inable to use any chaos based abilities.
- SNN article: Secase
An ancient sword that once belonged to his blade master who taught him how to use a sword to begin with. It was stolen by Nack the Weasel and Mystic had his first adventure trying to retrieve the sword from him. While Mystic has used this sword as a weapon, he set it at Bridge Zone as a grave monument to his teacher. The weapon is said to have once been wielded by Sir Lancelot himself in Grand Kingdom, medieval times.
- Main article: Caliburn the Sword
While Mystic was born in 20th-Century Grand Kingdom, he never been to 12th-century Grand Kingdom (Where Sonic and the Black Knight took place) Mystic does eventually meet Caliburn and honoured to be trained by him. While not as agile as Sonic, the two work well together, Mystic with great respect to his teacher.
- SNN article: Excalibur
Caliburn also works as Mystic's "Ultima Weapon" since Mystic is capable of summoning the "Long-lost Light of the Sacred Sword" for Caliburn to become Excalibur, Mystic's most powerful sword. However, unlike Excalibur-Sonic, Mystic doesn't gain any special armor himself.
- Clarity the Monkey - Mother
- ??? (Mystic I) - Father (Nothing is known about him, except Mystic has his fathers name.)

Of yet Mystic does not have a theme song, however one is being planned for him based on Bridge Zone theme.
- "I dunno why I love this Zone theme. I just seem to feel for the melody and can visualise Bridge Zone as fields, cliffs, classic wooden bridges and waterfalls everywhere that is wonderful. It also sparks different emotions of adventure, hope and happiness to me which are the qualities of Mystic Monkey. Thats why I want to do my best to write lyrics for this Zone theme, remix it and give it to Mystic as his own personal theme."

- Original story for Mystic Monkey was that comes from South Island, this is changed in favour for Modern Grand Kingdom.
- His behaviour to being mistaken for a rat, mouse or any sort of rodent is a reference to Edward Elric who reacts simular when he is accused of being small.
- Like Amy Rose with her hammer, Mystic can make his sword disappear on person despite it's size.
- It's possible he could be a decendant from the Monkey King of Chinese Legends. However Mystic doesn't possess any magical or impossible powers and not an immortal.
- Mystic's sword bares resemblence to the Clarent, Sonic's training sword in Misty Lake in the game S&tBK. However Mystic's sword is without rust and better care and not confirmed if this is the same weapon.
- His Super transformation maybe religious based, but like the guy who designed him, Mystic is an Atheist.
- Despite the 7 Chaos Emeralds being of equal power and value, Mystic's favourite Chaos Emerald is the grey/white emerald simply because of it's colour and glow.
