Blaze the Cat is a lavender anthropromorphic cat, a princess from an alternate dimension, guardian of the Sol Emeralds, and an ally of Sonic the Hedgehog.

History

Past Adventures

For an unknown amount of time, Blaze has been the guardian of the Sol Emeralds in her home world. At one point, she met Sonic and his friends. Due to being a loner, she was a bit defensive about approaching them. She eventually warmed up to them, though, and they became her first real friends. As a result, Blaze and Sonic now consider each other to be trusted allies. (StH: #4, #9)

Fallout

Blaze Attacks Buzz Bomber

Blaze uses her pyrokinesis to prevent the defeated Buzz Bomber battleship from falling on the town.

While in her home world, Blaze felt the will of the Sol Emeralds, which instructed her to journey to Sonic's world to prevent a “terrible event”. After arriving, within the hometown of Tangle the Lemur, she teamed up with Sonic and his aforementioned new friend in disposing of Dr. Eggman's badniks raiding the village. After the situation was dealt with, and after some introductions between the cat and the lemur, Blaze explained to Sonic her reason for being on his world, to which Sonic broke the news that she was “about seven months too late” to prevent the event she mentioned (believing that she was referring to Eggman’s worldwide takeover, which had already ended). However, as Tangle noted that Eggman’s robots becoming more organized could be a sign that something “even worse” was on the way, Blaze reasoned that the Sol Emeralds would still have a purpose for directing her there, and that she would remain there until that purpose became clear, to which Sonic wholeheartedly agreed.

Battle For Angel Island

Eventually, Blaze was called to Resistance HQ where she and the Resistance's other allies were informed that the Resistance needed their help to liberate Angel Island, which had been conquered by Neo Metal Sonic and turned into a flying fortress. Additionally, Neo had secured the Master Emerald for himself on the island. While Amy Rose presented the group with her battle plan, Blaze offered a more direct approach in which she would become Burning Blaze with the Sol Emeralds and confront Neo. Tails convinced Blaze that it was not wise, though, given that Neo could potentially copy Blaze's powers and become too powerful. Instead, Blaze was tasked with helping one faction of the group break the Egg Fleet's control over the island while Sonic and Knuckles the Echidna confronted Neo. (StH: #9)

On their way to Angel Island, Blaze had a talk with Amy. When Blaze wondered if Whisper the Wolf could be trusted, Amy reminded her that she used to be a loner just like her. Reflecting on how far she had come, Blaze agreed with Amy that they would win the day after assuring her that she would be careful. When the Egg Fleet then began bombarding their ship, Blaze had to abandon the ship and begin her attack. Using the Sol Emeralds, she transformed into Burning Blaze and started attacking the Egg Fleet's vessels while thinking about how far she would go to protect her friends. She was soon after contacted by Amy and told her that she would be with the others soon. As her battle against the Egg Fleet continued, Blaze noticed that her transformation was beginning to run out. Seeking to finish her part of the plan now, Blaze channeled the last of her strength into a massive attack that blew the Egg Fleet's left wing unit that was attached to Angel Island off the island. With her powers drained, Blaze turned back to normal and landed on Angel Island. (StH: #9, #10)

As Angel Island began to fall, Blaze took flight wondering if she caused this to happen. She soon after met up with the rest of her team onboard an Egg Fleet battleship that Tails had secured. Amy informed her that the island's descent was due to the absence of the Master Emerald. Knuckles later contacted them to request Burning Blaze's help, but Blaze explained that she could not transform again due to the Sol Emeralds being low on power. When Master Overlord (Neo Metal Sonic further transformed) attacked the battleship, Blaze joined her allies in a midair assault on Master Overlord, whom they forced closer to Angel Island while Knuckles focused on removing the Master Emerald from Master Overlord's body. During the battle, Blaze got shaken off of Master Overlord, but was rescued by Silver the Hedgehog with his psychokinesis. Knuckles subsequently got the Master Emerald away from Master Overlord and brought it back to Angel Island, which returned the island to the sky while Master Overlord powered down to his normal Metal Sonic form. With the battle over, Blaze was brought down on Angel Island where she thanked Whisper for her help. (StH: #11)

As everyone got ready to leave Angel Island onboard a repaired Egg Fleet battleship, Blaze and Silver conversed with each other. When Sonic came to check up on them and hear their next move, Blaze told Sonic that her work here was done and that she would return to her own world with the Sol Emeralds, although not before she saw everyone else home first. She also heard that Silver, who had a feeling that his future was not saved from desolation just yet, planned on staying in Sonic's time for now. Blaze and Silver were then left to themselves while Sonic checked on the others. (StH: #12)

Before returning to her home world, Blaze followed Amy's directions and came to a ruined city in order to find Silver. Upon finding him, Blaze learned that he was trying to grow vegetables in his own garden, but the plants did not want to grow. After taking a look at the plants that did grow, Blaze burned the earth and told Silver to use the ashes to fertilize the soil. She explained to him that the land on which he wanted to grow plants was acidified and heavy as a result of the bombs that had been dropped there. Silver proceeded to execute Blaze's orders, and thanks to her help, he managed to create a functioning vegetable garden. (StHA: #1)

Personality

Blaze Landing

Blaze acting dignified while landing.

Cool, collected, and serious in battle, Blaze typically maintains a dignified bearing, though despite the impression this, along with her royal status, may leave on others, she dislikes being referred to by titles such as "Princess" or "Your Majesty," and would rather be called by her own name. She also holds trust in the Sol Emeralds, and does not deviate from the tasks they cause her to undertake until uncovering the purpose behind the those tasks.[3]

Abilities

Blaze is a skilled fighter, gifted with the ability to create and control fire. With her pyrokinesis, Blaze can conjure up flames at any place on or all over her body for various offensive effects, such as turning herself into a burning projectile, forming a cloak of flames or increase the damage of the blows she deals. She can also use her flames to propel herself forward, increasing her speed and/or granting her limited flight.[3]
