Sky/Sora - Are You My Soul? by Sky-The-Echidna
Sky/Sora - Are You My Soul?
(Sky's POV)

I realize that I am a clone of someone else... A copy...
But I have always wondered if I have a soul or not.
My friends all have one, and hearts of gold. They say that I am the same as them, but it will take some time for me to understand & discover the truth.

During my mission to find my own purpose in life, I have come to wonder if my predecessor is the missing piece, or if she is my soul? ...
Sky's Origins - My Past... by Sky-The-Echidna
Sky's Origins - My Past...
I haven't done anything to do with Sky's Origins for a while...

Sky has traveled to the deepest part of the tomb all on her own. Amongst the ancient relics and remaining wall paintings, the female echidna also discovered a large statue of her predecessor, Sora. Consumed with many random emotions, Sky shed a tear, thinking to herself-

"This is the person that I was created from? Judging by what I have read & discovered, she was an amazing woman! How can I compete with that!? After all, I've been on the wrong side of life. I have made so many mistakes! ..."

Sky The Echidna Fan Button by Sophiecinders14…

V2 by SaphiraLovesShadow

I have been drawing since I was about 6 years old, and I haven't stopped since!
You name it, i doodled on it, from school books, to my bedroom door!

I've been a HUGE fan of Sonic the Hedgehog since I was almost 4 years old
(I'm 26 now so it's fair to say I've been a fan for a long time!), and I've also been playing games consoles since I was about 4!

I've had plenty of consoles since then, my first was a Sega Master System I, and I now have a Wii, a Wii U, a 3DS XL, an Xbox 360, and a sky blue Gameboy Advance SP I personalised myself (I still have my old MegaDrive, too!).

(*My birthday is actually 21st June. My cousin helped me set-up & activate my DA account, cuz I'm useless with computers, but he put the wrong birthday! XD*)

Personal Quote: "Live life with a smile and to the fullest/If you can, try and laugh at least once every day!"

Not In The Best Of Shape...

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 13, 2014, 2:51 AM

Hi, friends. Hope you're all well. ;)

I was supposed to be challenging my lovely boyfriend Todd A.K.A Todstar on Smash Bros 3DS yesterday, but I had to wait till today to go to a doctor;

Turns out I have an ear infection, and also a viral infection in my throat...

I was in agony yesterday but no GP's were open on Sundays. It's also made the left side of my face painful...

Still, I have a couple of days off work, and antibiotics, plus this won't stop me from drawing! ;)

and superior martial arts skills.

*Weaknesses- Slightly gullible at times, her energy is drained when using

willing to put her life on the line when someone is in danger, can be
very stubborn and at times a bit naive, ETC.


Sky the echidna is the very first artificially modified clone created by the evil genius Dr Eggman.
Despite being the enemy at one point, she soon realized the error of her ways, and she eventually joined Sonic and company to fight against Eggman and his crazy schemes.
She is unsure about how and why she was created, but she aims to find out someday.

Sky can have a temper at times, such as when Sonic and Knuckles
argue and fight over nothing, or when Eggman comes up with another
dangerously insane scheme, but she is mainly a strong-willed, smart,
calm & confident woman who enjoys her newly found freedom and
independence, and hates people ordering her around, due to what
Eggman did to her.

She believes that women can be just as capable at most things than
men, despite there are more guys in the Sonic universe than girls.

Sky isn't cocky about her abilities like Sonic, but knows when is the
right time to use them in a crisis. She can be slightly gullible at times
(not to Knuckles' extent), but is extremely loyal, kind and caring to
her friends, and would easily put them first without considering her
own welfare or safety.

Although Sky is now good friends with Sonic and company, it wasn't
always that way to begin with-
She had spent a lot of time gaining their trust after being their enemy
for so long, but since Sonic was already so trusting of her
(and the fact that he was instantly attracted to her the moment he saw her)
not to mention how shocked they were about the way Eggman
had treated her, they soon followed and are now all glad to have her
as their ally.

Most of Sonic's friends and the blue hedgehog himself are always
complimenting about her beauty, but she does not see herself in the
same way that they do and modestly wonders what they all see in her.

Sky is one of the strongest females in Sonic's team due to her
unique powers, which are a mixture of Chaos powers that are similar
to those of Shadow the hedgehog, and her own special healing abilities,
plus her own martial arts skills.

When it comes to her abilities, she is just as powerful as Sonic and
Shadow, yet although she is indeed fast in her own right, she is not
as speedy compared the two hedgehogs.

Speaking of the two hedgehogs, Sky is caught in a complicated
love triangle between Sonic and Shadow-
She is torn, and so is struggling to choose whichever one to be her
perfect match. Although she has known Sonic longer and loves his
personality, she is drawn to Shadow due to their unique 'psychic link',
both being Ultimate Life-forms.

Even though Sky would usually say what is on her mind, she seems to
keep certain feelings to herself, especially her thoughts about how and
why she was created and whatever reasons Eggman had used the
mummified remains of the goddess AND Black Doom's blood/DNA sample
to create her.

There are also so many things about her 'origins' that even she has
no clue about!

Despite all of the unanswered questions going through her mind
about her creation, Sky is a valuable ally to have in anyone's team,
and one of the most loyal people you will ever meet.

Hey there Mel hope you're doing wonderfully

Btw i came up with a Sky the echidna story when i was in school but i was wondering would like to hear the story out and if you think i can have permission to write it on DA
Sky-The-Echidna Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hi, buddy. :)

I would love to hear your story! 
ShadowEspioFan1 Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Student General Artist

Awesome its an alternate take on skys origins except its when sonic finds a mystical gem which transports him to Sora's time which by then Sonic knew Sky and starts feeling uneasy since an evil is threatning the land but Sora gradually puts the pieces together one by one

Thats the solicitation how does that sound
Sky-The-Echidna Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
