— Violet The Hedgehog
Violet is a 22 year old hedgehog living in Green Flower City. Although she acts and lives like a regular teen, her fur color is unusual. She has neon purple fur, specifically mildly dark purple fur with lighter highlights. She is the girlfriend of Speedy The Hedgehog, and conveniently lives directly next door to him. She currently trains with Smash The Echidna, in hopes of getting stronger to help her friends out when needed. Especially Speedy, who was often getting into trouble at the time. Some of her friends said it was to impress him, but that wasn't her true motive. She is the leader of Team Violet, which includes Pearl The Echidna and Crystal The Fox, two of her best friends. The team was originally formed to fight crime and stop evil. Despite the fact that whenever something big goes down and the entire gang gets involved to deal with it, Team Violet will still work together through it.
LooksViolet's fur is neon purple, as stated above. Her eye color is blue. She has a few bangs of hair going just above her eye. Which direction it's going depends on which way she brushed it at the time. Aside from what's visible on the front of her head, she has very short hair--almost unnoticable, most of which is hidden between her quills. She keeps it short for her preferred style, however has considered letting it grow out. In Season 4, she does. She sports short hair reaching shoulder length. It's just as neon purple as the rest of her fur.
Her quills are about a medium length, but rather sharp. Her outfits vary, but she always wears the same white gloves and violet colored shoes. Her main outfit is a pale blue sweater, deep blue jeans and a black belt with a gold ring in the center. She sometimes wears a light red T shirt with black sleeves. She has also worn a deep blue formal dress at Smash The Echidna's wedding.
PersonalityViolet is generally kind and gentle towards those around her. She's often quiet unless she has something to say, or if she is excited about something. This is what's leftover from her shyness in her childhood, which she began growing out of once she made some friends. Violet is fairly energetic, and loves to play around outside. She enjoys sports and taking walks or jogs. She's very diligent when it comes to keeping fit, and pays a visit to the gym once a day. She loves most of any kind of surprises, and always tries to surprise her friends with something new, which often leads to her "surprisingly" mischievous side. She can be a little cranky if she stay's hungry for too long, or doesn't get enough sleep.
She enjoys listening to and making music. She loves soft melodies and acoustic solos.
It is rumored that, like Pearl, Violet has also been prone to being hit on and/or asked out by guys other than Speedy.* (not saying that Speedy is that type of guy.) She doesn't cope well with it, not knowing how to respond. Her reactions may range from bashfulness, confusion, to mild violence. Though nowadays, she may have matured enough to just simply decline like a normal person.
Strengths and PowersWhile she's very modest about it, Violet is an ace athlete. She is good at running, climbing, and excels in swimming especially. She has constantly been on the swim team at her school, as it's something she really enjoys. She can hold her breath for an impressive length of time, and is officialy the fastest swimmer in the main series, only rivaled by Smash's wife, Luna. What's more, she has also run track and practiced gymnastics.
Physical strength though was never something she was entirely good at. In battle, Violet mostly got in the way, and Smash The Echidna to train her. He accepted and whipped her into shape. Still, physical strength is not her strongest point, but she packs enough punch to do the job. She's also learned to observe fighters around her so that she can learn their moves. She quickly learned the "Rising Knuckle" from Smash, and the "Endless Bash" from Speedy. She once tried to do the spindash, but failed--and nearly hurt herself in the process.
To extend on her ability to mimic other's moves, she hangs onto a number of Elemental Rings. Violet does not have any unusual powers of any sort, nor does she possess the ability to turn super with the Chaos Emeralds. She has once equipped the Power Crystal, accidentally made by Gizmo, but it only amped her abilities up to her full potential. She was still incapable of performing a super transformation. However, she does own water, ice, and healing type elemental rings to expand on her abilities in battle.
Being the leader of Team Violet, she has the responsibility of leading their team to success. While she may not be the best strategist, she is surprisingly clever and witty. She is more likely to make short-term goals and make up the path to achieving them as she and her team go along. As Team Violet consists of her best friends in the whole wide world, there is a special bond between them all that keeps them together. They trust Violet's leadership, which she may doubt every now and then, but in return she trusts that they'll follow her lead and work together. Whether they're fighting, adventuring, or competing in sports or contests, Violet's ability to lead the team through it all is not to be underestimated.
Violet is a music lover at heart. Her goal in life is to become a musician and a composer. While she has not composed any original songs, she is a skilled pianist. She has a natural talent for playing the piano with great dexterity. She has experience in playing other instruments as well, such as the acoustic guitar, but she is most known for being a pianist.
She has an eye for arts and crafts. It's a small hobby of hers to make things like paper mache or wooden models. Her skills really shone when she and Speedy built their masterpiece "house raft", which they (rather, he) named "The Axium". A small single room cabin, sort of like a treehouse, on top of a large wooden raft. It does actually work, and they sometimes have Speedy's father tow it down to the beach so that they can drift around the coast.
Violet is generally an outdoors person. She's very often found outside, whether sitting in her yard relaxing or taking a walk in town. She'll often be seen hanging out with her friends as well. Specifically a certain group of friends who all live close by--a group who always come together at some point or another. Almost every evening, she'll go to the park with her boyfriend and watch the sunset with him. The park in Greenflower City is named Hedgehog Park. It was originally named Hedgehog Hill, but changed as a park was built on it. The hill is the particular spot the two like to sit in, as it has a perfect view of the rest of the city, the beach, and the ocean. The sunrise is even better during this time, as it rises above the ocean view.She is currently undergoing training with Smash to learn self defense and ways of fighting. If it weren't for his training, she may have been seriously wounded or even killed in many dangerous situations.
Violet knows how to play the piano, and is quite good at it. She started taking piano lessons from her mother when she was 10 years old. She has a decent singing voice, but prefers playing the piano. Violet and Pearl have been trying to come up with a song together, but haven't had much luck. It usually ends up with Pearl humming to whatever Violet plays.
HistoryViolet began as a purple Amy recolor with a blue dress. Originally, She was supposed to be a pale lavender color, but there was a miraculous mistake in her coloring while her first sprite was being created. She became neon purple instead. Her personality hasn't changed much, but she has developed into a better character over the years, when before she had been rather bland. Interestingly enough, despite her never being able to achieve one, I had designed a super form for her way back then. She was light pink and her quills flowed up and outward.
Her mother has taken on her old color, as a call-back to her original design.

Relationships with Other Characters
Violet's family never held much of importance to any stories, but they have appeared. And it's evident that she has a rather big family, despite being an only child. Her mother's name is Viola, while her father's name is Vincent. Her father is a local policeman, while her mother is a music teacher.
Violet has made many friends over the years. The main buddies she hangs out with often refer to themselves as "The Gang", since they live the closest to each other and its easy to keep in touch.
Sonic The Hedgehog
Violet knows Sonic mainly by the stories she's heard about his adventures. She's actually accompanied him for one. The two of each other are more of acquaintances rather than friends though.
Miles "Tails" Prower
Like Sonic, she's traveled with him during the events of Splice The Hedgehog. They aren't much more than acquaintances, however.
Knuckles The Echidna
She also traveled with him alongside the other two members of Team Sonic. She mainly knows him through Kyle and Pearl, who are better acquainted with him.
(FC's by same creator)
Smash is a good friend, and her personal trainer. She comes over to his house every other day to train, and to hang out with his sister, Pearl, who occasionally trains with them as well. Violet respects Smash and holds him in high regard. He was one of the first friends she ever made, and she fully trusts his leadership whenever she needs someone to look up to.
Smash's little sister, and Violet's best friend. The two have known each other since they were young, and have gone through everything together along with their other best friend, Crystal The Fox. The two are almost inseparable.
Crystal is Violet's second best friend. The two have known each other longer than Violet's known Pearl. They get along excellently.
She and Splice are buddies, more or less. They get along rather well. Nothing special in their relationship, although they tend to run into each other at the supermarket more often than anywhere else. It's become a sort of injoke between them.
She often runs into Lightning at the Burger shop by the beach. The two often chat there and sometimes have lunch together.
Violet thinks of Electric as a wise, older brother figure to look up to. She occasionally meets him at Crystal's house, when he's bringing his little brother over to play.
Violet has seen him around more often than his brothers, mainly at Crystal's house playing games. She's managed to talk to him a little bit, and can kind of relate to his shyness. They've slowly grown into fairly good friends over the years.
Violet and Kyle are good friends, but they rarely see each other due to the distance they live. She mostly keeps in touch via mail.
Keela is another good friend, but as she is Kyle's sister, they don't see each other often at all.
Violet and Gizmo hang out when they're with everyone else, but they rarely chat together with just the two of them.
Violet and Amber are pretty good friends. She's been trying to get Amber to get used to the city and broaden her horizons, as she's been living in the forest for so long.
Violet thinks that Kitty is one of the cutest chao she has ever seen. They obviously get along.
(Other Fancharacters)finally made his move and the two became Boyfriend/Girlfriend officially. A lot of their friends tease them about it, but Violet doesn't take it nearly as personally as Speedy did. She is one of the only ones who is very gentle towards Speedy, as she knows that he is very sensitive. Eventually, Speedy stopped being embarrassed about it altogether, and he was rather open about his feelings.
The two always meet up at Hedgehog Park, right down the street from where they live, to watch the sunset together on top of the hill. It's been a tradition between them for almost as long as they've known each other. They sometimes meet again at night to watch the stars, or early in the morning for the sunrise. Either way, that spot is a very important place to the both of them. It's also where Speedy confessed his feelings towards her.
Speedy and Violet tend to travel together often. From visiting distant towns and cities to exploring deep woods and even checking out beach resorts for vacation spots. They once went river rafting in the Axium, their hand-built raft house from the Camp Crystal contest.
It goes without saying that during adventures, the couple tends to stick together. With them both being decent fighters, they hold up pretty well together in battle.
Lily The Hedgehog
Lily is a strange one indeed. As a part of the gang, Violet hangs out with her every now and then. She almost never fails to weird her out. Violet hangs out with her more than most of her other friends, and finds Lily very amusing--although a tad creepy with how far her insanity can stretch out.
Marina The Echidna
Marina is a good friend she's known for a long time. The two live in different cities, and Marina tends to be very busy with her job, but that doesn't stop them from keeping in touch or planning meet-ups.
Another member of the gang. Violet thinks of her as a good friend, and hangs out with her often.
Lucy The Cat
A very absent minded girl who is very easy to impress. Violet rarely see's her without the rest of the gang. She constantly wonders where her mind goes at times.
Shade The Dark Chao
Shade is a very spiteful and rude guy, but he's pretty good when it comes down to it. Yet, Violet fails to see it. Shade picks on her a lot and is just disdainful toward her for seemingly no reason. She despises him for it. Through that, they still have to work together most of the time. She just has to grin and bear it.
Violet has few enemies, but they all were ruthless and threatening.
Dr. Ivo Eggman Robotnik
A classic villain. Violet faced him very few times, but always kept in mind that he could be a threat, so that she can come prepared if he should attack.
