— SHIFT, to anyone who will listen.
At firt glance, SHIFT appears to be a strange gangly robot. He is infact a complex electrical energy being. Due to the nature of his being, SHIFT can 'possess' any machine that dosn't have a complex AI unit. He dispises Shadow, for unknown reasons, but has a begrudging respect for Tails as he is just as tallented as his master, Dr. Eggman.
No-one knows for sure where SHIFT came from. What he tells most people is that he's just an exceptional robot. Nobody knows for sure where, or even when he came from for sure...
Tales of Central City
