"Quit staring, I'm albino, not an alien!"
Winter the Albino Hedgehog (アルビノハリネズミ冬 Arubinoharinezumi fuyu) is a fan-based character created by Rockinair, on DA.
A year after the events of Shadow the Hedgehog (the game), Winter the Albino Hedgehog was captured and experimented on by Doctor Eggman, who was seeking to create the Ultimate Living Weapon, to help in his conquest of the world. His goal was to give the subject super speed, super strength, extreme agility, and the power to tap into the Chaos Force. He also want to take away the subjects free will, so he/she could never betray him. He named this project, Project Chaos, after the God of Destruction.
This was a very long and painful process, lasting two years. During the process of taking her free will her memory was wiped, so her only "past" is the experimentation. Sometime during the third year, The Doctor proceeded to give her the ability to tap into the Chaos Force, through the process of Chaos Fusion. The process was a success, Winter was now connected to the Chaos Force, but during this process something inside her "awoke." An energy fuel by all her rage and pain. With her new found abilities she escaped, and
disappeared without a trace for many months.
During her disappearance she was training herself to control this new ability, the ability to destroy anything she touch, she called it Dark Energy, since its physical appearance was black, and was always tempting her to loose control, or kill anyone who apposed her, so for the safety of everyone she kept away from society, living in White Acropolis. But she did make one friend, a little Chao whom she rescued from badnicks. Frosty the Chao and Winter are always together.
A year after her escape G.U.N found a redacted file that referred to a project by the name of "Project Chaos", and its capability to "defeat Sonic and the Ultimate Life Form, Shadow the Hedgehog," based on the bits of information they found they concluded that Project Chaos was a threat and needed to be contained, or eliminated. The Commander was reluctant to send Team Dark on this mission due to the claim in the file, but was convince later on. So Team Dark was sent to find and contain-if possible-Project Chaos. The only description they had was that the subject was a female albino hedgehog. Winter was searching for a Chaos Emerald when she was located by Team Dark, who ordered her to surrender herself, which of course, she didn't. During the battle, she isolated Shadow, and decided to neutralize him first. During their battle, Frosty proceed to defend Winter, but getting between the two when Shadow had her pinned down, Shadow simply pushed the Chao out of the way, but not to harshly as to gravely injury it. Winter quickly ran to the Chao's aid, not caring that it now made her vulnerable to attack. Seeing this, Shadow realized this hedgehog was nothing like what they were lead to believe.
The two of them came up with a plan, staging the rest of the fight to make it look like she escaped. No one questioned the results of the mission since it was only confirming what they had read.
Presently, Winter fights against all evil, while hiding from G.U.N.
Winter is a quiet, intelligent hedgehog. Due to the fact she detached herself from society, she comes of as cruel and distant.
Winter hates it when people stare at her scare or her broken tail, she doesn’t know how she got that scare or how her tail was broken, and whenever someone asks about it, it’s a reminder that she’s missing something that she can never get back.
It is hard from Winter to trust others, or make friends, but when she does she is loyal to them. In fact Winter would even save the lives of those who treat her wrongly, she is very selfless, and would even put herself in harms way to protect others.
Winter in scientifically and technologically intelligent. Instead of looking at things from an emotional stand point, she looks at thing from a logical stand point. While being pretty smart she knows nothing about friendship and interacting with others, and usually isn't completely willing to learn.
Powers and Abilities
Winter always had the power to control and create ice and snow, along with supersonic speed and hearing. She is very experience in hand-to-hand combat, though her memories were taken her skills and experience weren't. When she's fighting, Winter can turn any individual part of her body or all of it into solid ice, dealing more damage, and taking less, but even when doing this if she comes in contact with fire she will be weakened if not knocked unconscious. Or she can create large icicles around her hands and use than as swords.
Her running style is closer to Shadow's, in the sense that she skates creating ice under her feet. This style has both it's benefits and it downsides, the downsides being due to less friction it is harder for her to stop, and if the ground is to hot her ice will melt. The benefits being, she is more maneuverable, and requires less energy since she can actually stop running but continue to slide at the same speed.
She also has multiple Chaos Attacks, ranging from a spear-like attack, to a large range blast, as well as being able to use Chaos Control and teleport when she has a Emerald.
Along with her weakness to fire and heat, her stomach is another of her vulnerabilities, because of her scare she takes more damage if hit there. Yet another weakness is others in danger, Winter would put herself in harms way to keep others safe, even those who wouldn't do the same for her, this is probably her greatest weakness.
Almost all her skills were enhanced during her experimentation, her strength, through she does not has super strength she is stronger than usual, her agility was also enhanced to the point that she can literally turn on a dime, and is also very acrobatic, and uses these skills to her advantage in fights.
Interactions With Others
Sonic the Hedgehog
Winter and Sonic don’t know each other too well; they meet once when they both were engaged in a fight with Eggman. After their first encounter, two respected each other and could relate, but are nothing more than distant friends.
Miles “Tails” Prower
Winter and Tails really don’t know each other too well.
Amy sees Winter as a hedgehog that just needs a girlfriend. Winter, greatly annoyed by the gesture usually tries to avoid Amy. Winter later appropriates Amy's friendship, knowing she'll always be there for her. The two girls have different outlooks of the world, Amy, being Amy, tries to give Winter love advice, though Winter never, ever wants it and makes that very clear. Winter envies Amy's free will to go wherever she wants when she wants, no need to worry about anything. The two girls are close friends.
Shadow the Hedgehog
Winter and Shadow have a secret relationship. Shadow keeps her hidden from G.U.N, by warning her when she has been found. But the two share a deeper connection, because they both have Chaos Energy inside them and are linked to the Chaos Force the two are attracted to each other like poles on a magnet, which is why they can always find each other, they can also sometimes feel when the other is in danger. Despite its difficulties the two have a very strong friendship, and quite possibly more.
Frosty the Chao
After saving Frosty from some badniks the two became good friends. Frosty never leaves Winter’s side. Winter loves the little Chao, there is not way to separate the two.
Winter hates Eggman. Eggman in truly afraid of Winter, knowing how strong he made her (which kind of gives him a sense of pride), but doesn't let that stop him from trying to get his project back.
G.U.N sees Winter as a threat to everyone, whether she works for the Doctor or not. Winter sees G.U.N just as she see Eggman, men who want her for her power, and will stop at nothing to get it. The organization and the albino hedgehog will never get along, and whenever they cross paths a battle commences.
