History

The Imprisoned Planet

At some point in the past, the Violet Wisps, along with other fellow Wisps, and their planet came under the threat of Dr. Eggman. Fortunately, they were saved by Sonic the Hedgehog. Afterward, a bunch of Violet Wisps and other fellow Wisps settled down on Sonic's world where they helped out the residents of Sonic’s world whenever they could, the Wispons being one such way of helping in particular.[1] (StH: #3)

During the War

During the war between the Eggman Empire and the Resistance, Resistance soldiers would use Deployment Pods to send willing Wisps onto the field in order to help on the battlefield. (StH: #3)

Near the end of the war, a town that served as a hub for Wispon distribution was saved and subsequently conquered by mercenary duo Rough and Tumble. As a result, many Wisps, including several Violet Wisps, were hoarded in Deployment Pods and Wispons by the two skunk brothers. (StH: #3)

Fallout

A Violet Wisp among those celebrating the town's freedom.

In the town that Rough and Tumble had taken over, the Violet Wisps found salvation when Sonic the Hedgehog and Knuckles the Echidna arrived to stop the two mercenaries. During the heroes' subsequent fight with Rough and Tumble, the Violet Wisps and their fellow Wisps were convinced by Sonic to not let the two villains boss them around. As such, the Wisps in Rough and Tumble's Wispons left them, leaving their arsenal powerless and allowing Sonic and Knuckles to defeat them. Afterward, the now-liberated Violet Wisps decided to stick around and help the villagers defend their town by powering their Wispons. (StH: #3)

Appearance

The Violet Wisp has a more menacing look than other Wisps. Its head is round with five curved-back tentacles around it, making it look like a swirl. It lacks eyes, unlike normal Wisps, and instead has a serrated mouth that look like a menacing grin. It also has three wide tentacles that stem from its head and end in jagged points.

Personality

Being a Wisp, the Violet Wisp is peaceful, helpful, and friendly of nature, and it enjoys spending its time with others. It gets especially well along with the good people of Sonic's world, whom it would gladly help out whenever it was needed.

The Violet Wisp is not much for fighting. However, it is nonetheless brave and good-hearted. As such, it does not approve of amoral behavior and will not stand idly by when its friends need it.

Abilities

The Violet Wisp is able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as its main method of transportation.

The Violet Wisp is able to generate and store its own unique variant of a powerful energy inside its own body. The Violet Wisp can as well pass on a fraction of this energy by phasing into the recipient.
