During the War

Shortly before the end of the war between the Eggman Empire and the Resistance[1][2], Rough the Skunk and Tumble the Skunk saved this town by driving back Dr. Eggman's forces. Promising to help the town improve their defenses, Rough and Tumble were let inside the town, only to take its Wispons and Wisps for themselves and take the residents prisoners within their own town. With the residents unable to escape either, since Badniks were waiting outside the town, Rough and Tumble could do whatever they wanted. (StH: #3)

Eventually, Knuckles the Echidna went to investigate the town, but did not report back after a while. While there, he single-handedly destroyed the Badnik horde that was surrounding the town. After finishing off a Death Egg Robot sentinel, Sonic the Hedgehog came by on Amy Rose's request to check up on him. Knuckles explained that the town's Wispon shipments had dwindled and he came by to find out why. He and Sonic entered the town, finding the citizens in a panic. There, they were informed by the gatekeeper that their town's Wispons had been stolen by the duo of mercenaries, Rough and Tumble as well as how they saved the town and then conquered it. Knuckles and Sonic went off to the town's supply depot-turned-fortress to put an end to the mercenaries' cruelty. With aid from the many Wisps being hoarded, Knuckles and Sonic easily defeated the mercenaries. Rough and Tumble were then taken to the town's jail while Knuckles and Sonic celebrated their victory with the villagers and Wisps. (StH: #3)

Battle For Angel Island and Big's Big Adventure

During the battle for Angel Island, Dr. Starline liberated Rough and Tumble from the town's prison, hiring them as lackeys. While Big the Cat was searching for his friend, Froggy, he happened to see Dr. Starline use the Warp Topaz to free Rough and Tumble out of their jail cell, with Big the Cat believing him to be a magician.
