Lucifer was created as a back-up for the link
, in case the original failed. In a way, you could say that this made Lucifer and Solaris ‘cousins’. Nicknamed ‘Project Lucifer’ after the after Satan, because of the Scientist’s unwillingness to work on two experiments at once. What the scientist’s didn’t count on, however, was for the Original link
to end up killing majority of them. The few that remained were terrified of the same happening again, and ‘Project Lucifer’ was discarded.
Lucifer comes across as a rather unpleasant kind of person; due to his tendency to find humor in others pain, and his psychotic nature, loving all things gory and destructive.
He flirts with most women, regardless of whether they are already in a relationship. Lucifer loves making people feel awkward. His reason for flirting hides another personality; Lucifer is lonely.
He is used to being alone; therefore he acts rather attention-seeking when he can. He likes being mysterious; he assumes it makes him more alluring. In truth it just makes him seem like the kind of person you want to get to know, but don’t because he honestly creeps everyone out. For one to be standing next to him is unheard of.
One of his ‘nicer’ traits is his ability to always see humor in a situation, although this can sometimes be a negative because he’ll end up laughing at something inappropriate.
Despite his apparently confident demeanor, he is described as ‘Burning Inside’ by those who have seen him mentally break down, such as link
Lucifer, when speaking to others, moves his hands around quite a lot, and will tilt his head to the side when being spoken to, and will twitch his ear when annoyed with something. His trademark expression is his insane grin.
When Lucifer is by himself, or he believes no-one is around, he’ll weep and howl out his frustrations to the world, and has made a habit of talking to the moon. One of the reasons for these activities is he believes he is just a “Stupid, good for nothing back-up experiment that has no idea where he is in life”. Another is that he always feels lonely, despite the fact he always refers to everyone as a friend.
The last, and probably also the most active contributor to his ‘depressed’ state is that he believes Mephiles doesn’t care about him anymore. During the time loop in which Mephiles was intent upon destroying the world/space-time continuum, Lucifer would not be far away. Lucifer saw Mephiles as an idol; someone who was powerful and determined to get exactly what they want regardless of consequences. Therefore, Mephiles and Lucifer had been friends for nearly the whole period of time.
Until, of course, Solaris was defeated by Super Sonic, Super Shadow, and Super Silver. Then ‘erased’ from the whole timeline when Elise and Sonic travelled back in time to prevent any of the situations to take place by blowing the small, flickering flame that was the young Solaris out. Sure, both Mephiles and Iblis survived, though the later in a much weaker state; barely a smoldering pile of ash. The battle had taken its toll on Mephiles also; only on his memory. Mephiles could remember nothing of his cousin, leading Lucifer to believe that he didn’t care.
It should also be noted that Lucifer suffers from schizophrenia, or unbalanced personalities. This can make him quite dangerous, and he can switch from one mood to another unpredictably and suddenly. It is unknown what triggers these.
Appearance and Forms
Originally, Lucifer was just a Mobian Hedgehog who had been at the wrong place at the wrong time. Unusually for a Solarin Hedgehog, he had a control over both fire and darkness, thus, when he had been sighted by the Duke of Soleanna, he had been subjected to immense energy, ultimately changing his overall appearance.
In his original, non-crystalline form, he had been a dark grey in color, with a pale, next-to-white blue muzzle and inside of ears. His quills had looked very similar to those of Sonic the Hedgehog. He had a tuft of chest fluff that only just made it to his shoulders (useful in the cold weather, he never did need a scarf).
He had bright green eyes that glistened with innocence, naivety, and intelligence.
His usual attire had been a dark grey hoodie-jacket with black designs on it, over the top of a brown, skin-tight t-shirt. His jeans were covered in ‘fashion rips’ and had two pockets that ran all the way down his body, each being able to hold about 6 coke cans.
Shoe-wise, he had worn the urban trend; Black sneakers with a white stripe and silver buckle.
He had been known for a necklace he had worn at all times; a bright green emerald pendant (ironically the exact same shade as his eyes) about the same size as 10 cent piece attached to a silver chain. It was said that this had been the source of his energy.
His original name was Faustus the Hedgehog, deprived from the Legend of Faust.
After the testing by the Duke, Lucifer’s appearance had become a crystalline demon-hedgehog who looked remarkably similar to Mephiles, only his muzzle was a darker shade of blue, not ivory as Mephiles is pictured with. Another difference is that is that while Mephiles had four cross-stitches in his eyes, Lucifer has only two and his sclera isn’t as brighter shade of red. Likewise, his irises aren’t as bright as Mephiles’, purely for the reason that while Mephiles was genetically grown as Solaris, Lucifer was once an organic hedgehog, not a WMD (Weapon of Mass Destruction).
Lucifer, like Mephiles, has claws, but Lucifer’s are much sharper, and even just a gentle poke from them would be described as a stab by anyone else.
Like his cousin, Lucifer can ‘melt’ into a shadow, and can imitate others abilities and appearance by absorbing their shade. Lucifer has absorbed link
's, and link
’s, and can become a look-alike to any of these people at will.
Abilities and Powers
Lucifer can do everything Mephiles can and more, due to the fact that when Mephiles and Iblis were separated, Mephiles lost majority of his abilities, yet was still very powerful. Lucifer, on the other hand, wasn’t as well-developed as Solaris, yet was never split from his energy source as Mephiles was.
Most of his attacks are physic based; the famed ‘Dark Chaos Lance’, similar to Mephiles’ own, only a dark shade of red instead of blinding white, and ‘Dark Spikes’, a name given to the attack when he summons shades into Chaos Spear-like projectiles. He can whip up shields for defense, which can be made from either fire or Chaos Energy.
He can create clones of himself, and crystalline monsters. He can summon and fire lasers made from darkness, and can manipulate weather patterns, increasing or decreasing temperature.
Lucifer can also hover off the ground, yet he hardly finds this useful.
He can read minds if just one of the two conditions apply to his target; he must either be genetically connected to the person (Mephiles, Rebecca, and Crescent) or be very close, mentally, to them. For example; both he and Rebecca prove to be unbalanced, unpredictable, and somewhat psychotic. Out of everyone, he can read Rebecca’s best for he is connected to her in both ways. Coming a close second is Mephiles, because they once shared an almost identical mind frame.
Strengths and Weaknesses
Lucifer has much strength; most notable is his close connection to Chaos Energy. He can manipulate the Chaos Emeralds with his mind subconsciously or at will. Sometimes he won’t even notice he is doing something to one until someone points it out to him. He is very close to Chaos because, not only when he was originally born, he was subjected to huge amounts of energy, but during the testing, he had come into close contact with all seven Chaos Emeralds.
His weaknesses are somewhat less mature; he suffers from hydrophobia (fear of water, crystal doesn’t float), autophobia (fear of being alone, he has been for too long), and algophobia (fear of pain, he can’t stand it in himself or someone he finds trustworthy).
He didn’t have many friends, aside from a young human boy, Dylan, who he mucked around with at school, but they weren’t particularly close. Faustus didn’t mourn his death; they had been more allies than friends, probably due to the fact Dylan may have thought to make an enemy of Faustus would be stupid.
The Duke also found interest in Faustus (when he was 17); his first thoughts had been he could use the young hedgehog as a WMD. Faustus refused this offer, stating that he will fight only for what he believes in. When the Duke heard this, he was enraged, thinking that Faustus would turn traitor against his country. Instead, the Duke forced Faustus’ co-operation into testing for Solaris, ultimately altering him into a completely different person.
It is unknown just how much Lucifer remembers from his time as Faustus.
Favorites and Hobbies
Color; Red (the same as his aura)
TV Show; Anything gory.
Music; He has people screaming in pain on his iPod, if that counts. Other than that, techno, rap, and hip-hop.
Lucifer finds a hobby as a DJ, under the name of ‘Luck’. He performs at Kryal Castle (Ultraworld) and is extremely popular with the people who visit. He has also been a DJ for the link
. He, himself is a shuffler, but does not perform professionally as he does with his DJ career choice.
His shuffling is very good, near the professional level. He throws this talent around, he shuffles often. Lucifer will shuffle given half a chance; just stick on some fast paced Techno music, like Skitz Mix, shown link
Despite this very ‘techno’ approach to music, he does show an interest in more traditional dances and songs. He knows many dances, including the Tango and the Waltz, but he rarely tells anyone about this.
Lucifer also enjoys reading, but only ever does so in certain places; one of which is up a tree, another on a cliff overlooking the city.
Perhaps because of his constant reading, he is also a great writer, but has only ever written one storey; a narrative that tells us of his origins and his feelings towards the Solaris project, an Autobiography on himself.
He also enjoys beat boxing.
Both Faustus and Lucifer’s names are deprived from the Legend of Faust.
Lucifer can often be seen staring off into space, completely oblivious to everything around him.
Despite being a genetic mess, Lucifer proves to be more powerful than Mephiles, due to the fact that while Mephiles is only half a being, Lucifer was never split.
Lucifer has passed out when he saw someone in pain.
When he was Faustus, he was extremely giving. As Lucifer, he appears to be quite greedy, but, under the right conditions, he would do anything for someone.
Unlike most mobians, Lucifer cannot spin dash.
Lucifer is faster than Mephiles.
Despite his rather incredible powers, he sees them as more trouble than they are worth, though he does like having them handy sometimes.
When angered (which is often) Lucifer will strike out at the source of annoyance violently and suddenly.
Lucifer never bluffs; if he makes a threat, he has full intentions of carrying it out.
His favorite shade of red is the same shade as blood, yet he cannot stand the sight of blood.
Even as Faustus, Lucifer’s eyes have always had slit pupils.
Lucifer’s favorite musical artists are Nick Skitz and Blutonium Boy.
