Elder Scruffy is the head of the Windmill Village.
Saving an Amnesiac EggmanWhen an amnesiac Dr. Eggman one day appeared in Windmill Village, he was immediately locked up. Elder Scruffy found the next day that he had broken out of his cell only to reinforce it. After confirming that Eggman had truly forgotten his old villainous ways and was now a changed man, the village nursed his wounds and took him in. He even joined Elder Scruffy and others for at least one meal. In return, Eggman repaid their kindness tenfold. He repaired anything they brought him from the smallest, most delicate work to the largest, most grueling efforts. This seemingly included at least one windmill that Elder Scruffy and Eggman celebrated once it was ready. (StH: #5) When the Chaotix of the Chaotix Detective Agency appeared and realized the situation, they lead Sonic the Hedgehog to the village to decide what to do. Elder Scruffy weighed in on the subject, explaining how the Dr. Eggman turned Mr. Tinker came to be and finished by adding that he would rather see this new Eggman do some good for others instead of rotting in a cell and do nothing. Just then, Badniks including Anton, Hoverbys, and a Flapper began approaching the town, and Sonic, who suspected the Badniks were here for Eggman, shot Elder Scruffy, who could only give an awkward smile, a dirty look. Fortunately, Eggman was proven innocent, and Elder Scruffy saw Sonic make peace with Eggman, whom the hedgehog allowed to remain in Windmill Village. (StH: #5) Elder Scruffy was among the villagers who wintessed the introduction of Tinker's latest creation, Belle.
About a week after Mr. Tinker was kidnapped from Windmill Village by Rough and Tumble, the skunk brothers returned to the village and captured the village. Elder Scruffy was gagged and tied to a tree while the rest of the villagers were locked in the village's community centre. He was found by both Sonic and tails and filled them in with what happened just before Rough and Tumble appeared. While Sonic was distracting the skunk duo, Tails helped Elder Scruffy free the rest of the citizens. He was then told by Tails to hide with the other villages while Tails helps Sonic defeat the skunks.
Some time after the launching of Eggman's faceship, Elder Scruffy along with the rest of the Windmill Village inhabitants noticed Eggmans new ship, which then dumped its metal virus right on the village. Elder Scruffy attempted to protect a child against the virus flood, but both him and the child were transformed into zombots.
All or Nothing
After the Zeti took control of the Faceship and the metal virus, Zavok, while commanding the faceship commanded a large horde of zombots, which included Elder Scruffy, to Angel Island. With the power of the Warp topaz, both Super Sonic and Super Silver were cure everyone infected by the virus, with Elder Scruffy returned to normal.
Out of the Blue
Scruffy joined the misplaced victims of the metal virus in celebration of their freedom.
Elder Scruffy is a wise and polite man who priorities his village over himself. He is also extremely compassionate and willing to forgive and forget. Noticeably, he wanted Dr. Eggman to be free to do some good after the doctor had lost his memory and became a reformed man that would help out Windmill Village in wonderous ways in spite of having heard stories of the doctor's horrendous acts that he could hardly imagine.
Elder Scruffy is a heavyset anthropomorphic goat with gray fur, pink skin and blue eyes.

He also has extra long fur beneath his chin in the form of a thick beard and medium-long sideway ears. For attire, Elder Scruffy wears a purple sweater, a green jacket, fingerless black gloves and black shoes with golden buckles on them. He also carries around a wooden cane.
