"Knuckles, Can I come too?!"
Despite how young she is, and slightly short, Tio is a teenage girl who is currently thirteen. She was born on March 21st on the very top of Emerald Mountain, where she currently resides. This is where she met Knuckles sometime back when a wild boar had tried to attack her after she saved a chao from it.
Tio is single, considering she ONLY likes Knuckles. She isn't very posessive of him or anything, but she can be a little bit stingy when it comes to sharing him with other girls who show interest.
As she has never seen another echidna, its possible she could end up falling in love with someone who may be one someday.

Tio knows how to fend for herself and loves a good fist fight. She is somewhat tough but overal very energetic and a cutesy girl. She loves to hang out with Knuckles and considers herself a fan of his, but she claims not to be a stalker or some love crazed fangirl.
While she persues him, Tio is very certain that Knuckles will never return her true feelings, due to age and feeling as if she is nothing interesting to him. But he seems to accept her as a friend so far, though cares somewhat about her safety and often tries to make her stay behind, but to no avail...
While she can also be scared easily, if someone threatens Knuckes it doesn't take Tio much to attack said person. Though she tries to not be reckless...
