In his second and true form, Mephiles appears almost identical to Shadow the Hedgehog, another Sonic character, but with a grayish-blue color replacing everything that was red on Shadow, silver glove rings replacing Shadows original gold glove rings and green, feral-looking eyes, but no mouth. His third and favorite form was a crystalline, anthropomorphic hedgehog form resembling the appearance of other hedgehogs in the Sonic series, such as Sonic himself.

History

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Mephiles was created during the "Solaris Experiment" (Project Solaris) related to Elise's father. He was actually an extension of Iblis himself; he is the shadow of Iblis, the conscious counterpart to the flames raw power. He was sealed in the "Scepter of Darkness" by Shadow the Hedgehog, who had traveled through time to ten years before the events of the game. In the present, Dr. Eggman accidentally releases him while trying to steal the scepter from Rouge the Bat. When he is released, Mephiles uses Shadow's shadow to reawaken and Shadow sees Mephiles is a near exact physical duplicate of himself, but with slightly different colors. He seeks to get the Chaos Emeralds and bring pain and despair to Princess Elise, with the goals of making her cry, therefore releasing the "Flames of Disaster" (a.k.a. Iblis), and then fuse with him, becoming Solaris. Princess Elise The Third is a fictional character from the Sonic the Hedgehog series of games. ...

To accomplish this, he tells Silver the Hedgehog and Blaze the Cat that Sonic the Hedgehog was the cause of Iblis being released, which led to the destruction of their world. Sonic was, thus, referred to as the "Iblis Trigger". The two then promptly travel back in time to stop Sonic from inadvertently destroying the world in the future, when it was really Mephiles' plan to make Elise cry, as she loves Sonic.

Along the way, as all three storylines progress, the three main characters discover how Mephiles was somehow involved in the secret "Flames of Disaster", wielded by Princess Elise. Mephiles has a very pivotal role in all of the storylines, throughout the course of the game (even though he ends up battling Shadow in Shadow's story). In the Last Story, Mephiles uses a Chaos Emerald to warp to Sonic and Elise's location, then Mephiles instantly impales Sonic with a spear of energy, thus killing him. Elise cries over his death and, as a result, releases Iblis, allowing Mephiles to fuse with him and transform into Solaris. Hunting spear and knife, from Mesa Verde National Park. ...


Mephiles holds a particular hate for Shadow since it was he who sealed him in the Scepter of Darkness. Mephiles attempts to break Shadow's will to fight, much like Black Doom had, by revealing that in the current future, the world, and an unwilling Omega, would turn against Shadow and imprison him. However, Shadow proved immune to Mephiles' tactics. Black Doom is the fictional antagonist from the game Shadow the Hedgehog, created by Sega Studios USA.

Mephiles has the ability to control time itself, as he appears in the past, the present, and the future in Shadow's, Sonic's, and Silver's stories respectively.

He can sink into the ground and become the shadow of his opponent (particularly Shadow's since you only fight him as Shadow, but on one level you fight Mephiles as Omega). Mephiles's final attack used before transforming into his Solaris form was a long energy bolt that he extends from his right hand to impale Sonic. He can also duplicate himself into an army of clones when he has 2 Chaos Emeralds.


Mephiles also appears to have some form of semi-omnipotence as he was able to manipulate nine people (Amy, Blaze, Knuckles, Omega, Rouge, Shadow, Silver, Sonic, and Tails) across a time period of 210 years (from 10 years in the past until 200 years in the future) to get a single result in the present.

Iblis (taken from the name of Satan in Islamic religion) was an immortal monster of mass destruction and was Silver the Hedgehog's main enemy in Sonic the Hedgehog. It was a creature that was born from "The Flames of Disaster", takes the name "Disaster" from this. Iblis apppears to be mindless and only seems to be interested in causing destruction. Its primary form has four arms and was a lava-like version of Perfect Chaos in appearance. Originally sealed inside Princess Elise by her father over 10 years before the game, Iblis was inadvertently released by the "Iblis Trigger" a few years later. As a result, Iblis continued to destroy the world up until, and including, Silver's time period in the future. In Silver's story, Silver the Hedgehog and Blaze the Cat continuously battle Iblis, but it ended up proving too powerful for either of them to defeat. It had the ability to continually resurrect itself. Thus, Mephiles advises Silver and Blaze to depart to the time period right before Iblis' final transformation to stop Sonic the Hedgehog, referred to as the "Iblis Trigger" from destroying the world. In order to defeat Iblis, Blaze was forced to seal it within her, seemingly destroying both of them. However, as the intention was to trap Iblis in another dimension, it was possible that Iblis and Blaze wound up in the reality Blaze came from in Sonic Rush. In addition to the form described earlier, Iblis' other forms are one like a giant snake with a ripped up face, the first one with two arms but has legs, and his original form, a ball of flame. Although Blaze survives within the mentioned dimension, it is unclear what happened to the Iblis of Silver's time. That Iblis is either trapped within Blaze or was erased from time.

Solaris was a god of time and the super-dimensional sun god of Soleanna seen in Sonic the Hedgehog and probably the most powerful being in the Sonic series ever to be introduced. Solaris initially existed as a flame which was worshiped by the citizens of Soleanna. The Duke of Soleanna led experiments into Solaris, in the hopes of using its time control powers to allow humanity to correct its past sins. However, during one such experiment Solaris became unstable and split into two forms - Iblis, the raw power, and Mephiles, the conscious mind. Mephiles was sealed into an artifact known as the "Scepter of Darkness" whilst the Duke was forced to seal Iblis inside of his young daughter, Princess Elise The Third. Before dying from wounds caused by the accident, he told his daughter to grow up to be a strong queen who would never cry as doing so would destroy the seal on Iblis.

After killing Sonic, Mephiles was quick to rejoin with his counterpart after its release from Princess Elise, once again forming their complete form of Solaris. Still enraged at being tampered with during the Solaris Project, Solaris plunged the world into darkness, preparing to devour time itself. Before he could achieve this, he was defeated by a combined assault from Super Sonic, Super Shadow and Super Silver. His defeat spirited Elise and Sonic back to before the fateful experiment. After some contemplation, Elise chose to blow out the tiny flame that was Solaris and thus change history by erasing him from existence.
