History

The Imprisoned Planet

At some point in the past, the White 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 White 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)

At some point in the past, Sonic the hedgehog befriended a White Wisp named Yacker. (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 White Wisps, were hoarded in Deployment Pods and Wispons by the two skunk brothers. (StH: #3)

Fallout

White Wisps among those celebrating the town's freedom.

In the town that Rough and Tumble had taken over, the White 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 White 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 White Wisps decided to stick around and help the villagers defend their town by powering their Wispons. (StH: #3)

Appearance

The White Wisp has a sphere-shape body with three tentacles, two of which are used as arms. It has one pink eye in the center of its head and two very alien-like antennae on top of its head. Some members of the White Wisps can also have hair, such as Yacker, who has a blue hair-like curl on his head between his antennae.

Personality

Being a Wisp, the White 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 White 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 White Wisp is able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as its main method of transportation.

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

Background Information
