History

Origins

Tails was born the son of Rosemary and Amadeus Prower, also having an uncle named Merlin. Due to the machinations of Dr. Robotnik, his family was scattered. His parents trapped on the other side of the galaxy and in hiding, Tails ended up living in Knothole Village with Sonic the Hedgehog and the other Freedom Fighters. Among them, he became particularly fond of Sally Acorn, referring to her affectionately as "Aunt Sally."

Freedom Fighter

Once he became old enough, Tails joined the other Freedom Fighters in their efforts against Robotnik. For all his technical knowledge, he was thought to be too inexperienced to participate in the more dangerous missions for some time. This eventually led him to embark on a solo adventure to the land of Downunda, a supposed parallel of Australia, where he worked together with the Downunda Freedom Fighters to defeat their arch-nemesis Crocbot. During his journey to this continent, he also confronted Octobot, whom he had defeated on a previous occasion. It was also during his time in Downunda that Tails met Athair, great-grandfather of Knuckles the Echidna, who revealed to Tails his destiny as the Chosen One, a being fated to reach divine status and become an even greater hero than Sonic and Knuckles.

While Tails' heroic role led him to conflict with villains such as Ixis Naugus, the Destructix, and Scourge the Hedgehog, his main nemesis is the villainous Mammoth Mogul. Ancient and powerful, Mogul is determined to prevent Tails from achieving his destiny. The two have battled on numerous occasions, the first time following Mogul's theft of the powers of Enerjak to become Master Mogul for the first time. Working together with Super Sonic, Hyper Knuckles, the other Freedom Fighters, the Chaotix, King Acorn's Secret Service, the Brotherhood of Guardians, Athair, and few other allies, Turbo Tails was able to defeat Mogul by draining away his powers with the Chaos Syphon, creating the Master Emerald and trapping Mogul within it-at least until Dr. Robotnik shattered it to feed the then monstrous Chaos.

Mogul, badly weakened by his imprisonment, used the embers of his power to strike a lethal blow against the Ancient Walkers, the deities who had long been his nemeses and who had made the prophecy of Tails' rise to divinity. the same Seeking power once again, Mogul captured Turbo Tails and held him prisoner, apparently creating a doppelganger of Tails to replace him so that no one would notice. Once Mogul had accomplished his goals in draining off much of Turbo Tails' energy, the fake Tails vanished and the real one was set free. Unfortunately, Mogul obtained enough power to challenge Chaos Knuckles, resulting in the Guardian's death. Worse, when Knuckles returned from the afterlife, he came back without his powers and left the Chaos Force off balance, allowing Mogul to seize it and become Master Mogul once again. Using his near omnipotent abilities, Mogul proceeded to devastate the multiverse. Alerted to this threat by Zonic the Zone Cop, Tails joined with innumerable alternate versions of himself to become Titan Tails, who defeated Mogul and sealed him in his Chaos Emerald.

Later, Tails was abducted by A.D.A.M., who intended to use Tails and Shadow the Hedgehog to collect every Chaos Emerald in the universe to give himself unimaginable power. However, A.D.A.M.'s plan was brought to a halt as Eggman woke him and Shadow up. Turbo Tails and Super Shadow then worked together to send the Chaos Emeralds into the Zone of Silence. Later, Tails was reunited with his parents with the help of Sonic, Knuckles, and his uncle Merlin. He was then one of the few members of the Freedom Fighters to have escaped being captured by Eggman's forces during the assault on Knothole that resulted in the city's destruction, and assisted Sonic, NICOLE, Amy, and Knuckles in the ensuing rescue mission. Unfortunately, Tails' tense relationship with Sonic deepened to an argument as to how they should proceed with the rescue. This stressed to the point of breaking as the pair found themselves on opposite sides of a schism in the Kingdom of Acorn, Tails supporting the side led by his father and Sonic remaining loyal to the House of Acorn.

Possible future

Tails was one of several characters featured in Mobius: 25 Years Later. In the first version of this possible future, he had married Mina Mongoose and had two children, both of whom echoed their parents relationships to Sonic with Sonic's son Manik (the fox being manik's best friend, and the mongoose having a crush on manik).

Fortunately, Tails found help in the form of Knuckles' daughter Lara-Su, who also retained her memories of the original timeline. Together, the two managed to locate the missing Sonic, only for all three of them to be arrested by Knuckles.

Romance

During Tails' solo adventure to Downunda, he met and befriended the Downunda Freedom Fighters, among them Barby Koala. He developed a crush on her, and while she felt that she was too old for him, she admitted that he was cute.

Fiona's organic counterpart later joined the Freedom Fighters, and Tails (now 11 years old) seems to have a crush on her, although she is less than interested in him as she is several years older. To make matters worse, she started going out with Sonic, severely afflicting the relationship between Tails and his friend. Recently, Fiona has revealed that she is actually in love with Scourge the Hedgehog. Tails tried to stop the betrayal, only to be slapped fiercely across the face by the treacherous vixen. Afterwards, Tails was left even more brokenhearted than before, which he reveals openly to Sonic when attending the wedding of Bunnie Rabbot and Antoine D'Coolette.

Alternate selves
