Character Sheet for Jolt The Renegade Hedgehog
An optimist, Jolt is usually happy and is never down. He is very outgoing and friendly, and sees himself as a servant of others. He helps those in need, even if it won't benefit him. His side job as a handyman displays this trait well, as he sometimes does not ask for payment in return.
Jolt likes music and all forms of entertainments, helping others in any way he can, and occasionally fighting. He does not like bullies or those that belittle others, taking a stand for them.
Jolt was born to time traveler Sparky the Renegade Hedgehog. Not wanting his son to live in the apocalyptic future he himself hailed from, Sparky raised Jolt in the present. Despite his upbringing, Jolt did not desire to be a fighter like his father and grandfather, and left his home to find his own path.
Becoming a wanderer, he did various odd jobs to keep himself alive, learning many jobs and becoming a handyman with his acquired skills. He learned that while he did not like fighting, he had a knack for it, and enrolled in a Tae Kwon Do dojo, getting a job at a local bar so he could stay in town with a stable income. Here, he became an entertainer, mainly a piano man. He soon became famous for his piano playing, and formed his own band, the Never Say Nevers (Shush, blah blah blah Justin Beiber sucks, blah blah blah) and becoming a worldwide sensation. He learned that his inherited powers allowed him to adjust his voice, appearance, and physical abilities, and he integrated it into his performances.
After a falling out with his band involving his need to let poor people enjoy his concerts for free, he left and became a handyman again, sometimes helping people for free out of kindness. This is when he met Mina Mongoose. He protected her from a kidnapping attempt from Eggman, and she hired him as a bodyguard/handyman. She soon found that he was musically gifted, and he became a full member of her band, the Forget-Me-Knots, becoming a back-up singer (Something the band lacked), and piano player as well as other instruments when needed.
Coming back into popularity, he brought his old band back and integrated the two bands into the Forget-Me-Nevers, as his friendship with Mina bloomed into romance.
Sparky T.R.H. (Father), Shadow the hedgehog (Grandfather), Unknown mother and grandmother.
Jolt technically hails from the future, though he lives in, and grew up in, the present. He fights Eggman on occasion, though only to defend his fans from the villain's tyranny, and to defend his music and entertainment. He does not tend to hang out with the main Sonic cast, even Shadow, as he believes joining them will change his views of helping others.
Jolt is a neon green hedgehog with neon yellow highlights. His body structure is similar to Shadow's, thin but muscular, with white chest fur and upturned quills naturally. When on stage, he stylizes his hair more radically to match his stage flair.
When not performing, Jolt normally wears blue jeans, a shirt with green on it, green boot-styled hoverskates, fingerless black gloves, and a cross pendant around his neck. When onstage, he prefers cooler clothes, such as coats, long white gloves under his black fingerless gloves, green clothes, long boots, cool glasses, and headphones to make sure his music is going well.
Though not normally seen, he carries a lance and shield combo he traditionally disguises as a guitar. He also usually has a handyman's belt.
