Mephiles The Dark

Mephiles the Dark is one of the main villains of the game Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). He is the conscious, mind and will of the Sun god Solaris.

a character in “The Multiverse”, as played by JewelGlutton

Description

Mephiles has three forms. Its original form was an amorphous mass of darkness. In his second form, Mephiles appears almost identical to Shadow the Hedgehog, aside from having green eyes with slit pupils, no visible mouth (though his muzzle moves when he speaks, as if he does have a mouth), and the fact that everything that is red on Shadow is a pale powder blue on him. His third and most common form was a crystalline, anthropomorphic hedgehog. In this form, he has no visible nose, mouth, or feet.

Personality

Unlike most of the villains in the Sonic series, who are driven by a lust for power or revenge, Mephiles (as Shadow put it) only seems to crave destruction. He is portrayed as a cold, ruthless villain with no sense of compassion. He would do anything to accomplish his goals, even if it means taking innocent lives. Mephiles happens to take great pleasure and delight in hurting others and has been shown to have a very warped and twisted sense of humor, making him a very sadistic and psychotic individual. For example, he made it his sole mission to cause pain to Elise throughout the entire course of the game, and even broke out into a maniacal laughter after ending Sonic's life. This is also seen when he taunts Omega by telling him he would be reprogrammed to capture Shadow. Mephiles also happens to be highly intelligent, as he's capable of using and manipulating people to further his evil plans. This is shown when he preyed upon Silver's frustration and desire to save the world, by deceiving him into thinking that Sonic was responsible for everything, knowing that killing him would have done the exact opposite of what Silver was trying to achieve.

He also has nihilistic tendencies, as evidenced in his final fight against Shadow, where he asks why Shadow even bothers fighting at all, and why Shadow even bothers defending humanity when they will inevitably persecute him later.

It has also been speculated that Mephiles might also be somewhat of a coward, judging from several actions he displayed throughout the game:

■He operated most of his plans secretively, and his main target, Sonic, was almost totally unaware that he existed. He then killed Sonic by impaling him through the back without warning, which usually in battle, attacking from behind is an act of cowardice.
■During both boss fights, Mephiles hardly attacks on his own without aid, by either summoning shadows, or cloning himself to use as distractions. He uses the shadows in the first boss fight as shields, and increases the number of them when you get too close.
■Also during the boss fights, he waits to attack you until your back is turned.
■He also doesn't fight you directly until you expel him from Shadow's shadow.
■He also managed to convince Silver and Blaze into attempting to kill Sonic before actually doing it himself, which would in turn release Iblis, though there was a much stronger form of Iblis already free in his time while he had a Chaos Emerald at hand.
■After he begins to lose the first boss fight, he promptly flees by opening a portal in time, and altering it before Shadow and Omega can jump through.
■In the time ten years previous to the story that takes place, when Shadow corners the newly created Mephiles before sealing him away, Mephiles' voice sounds startled if not frightened before quickly shifting into his more recognizable tone as he makes a threat to Shadow.
Mephiles also seems to have a habit of waving his hands when he speaks, as he's seen doing so in nearly all of his appearances, ranging from holding his hands up high while making a declaration, to holding them out to the sides slightly or even in front of himself while making himself appear as an ally to Silver and Blaze.

Mephiles also showed limited interest in people, taking particular interest in Shadow, Omega, Silver and Sonic, the latter only because he needed to kill him. Mephiles is shown to hold a particular hate for Shadow since it was he who sealed him in the Scepter of Darkness.

This being said, Mephiles did not acknowledge Rouge, Blaze or Elise, whom he would have been aware of, while the rest of the game's cast did not know of him just as much as he did them.

Equipment

Mephiles can manipulate and move through time with an ability similar to Chaos Control. His primary offensive technique is a massive sphere of black energy that is spawned from his hands that home in on their targets. He can also use the energy spheres to move himself and others through time. Furthermore, he can alter his physical form to sink into the ground and merge with the shadow of another. He can also manipulate shadows to create "clones" of himself, although they are warped and imperfect without the power of the Chaos Emeralds. He can also merge the clones together to make large shadow monsters. With two Emeralds, he can create an army of perfect clones. As seen in "The Showdown with Mephiles" cutscene, Mephiles can also knock opponents away by firing shockwaves of energy at them. Mephiles's final attack used before transforming into his Solaris form was a long energy bolt (dubbed the "Dark Chaos Lance" by fans) that he extends from his right hand to impale Sonic.

Mephiles appears to be immortal, surviving every fight he takes part in, and whenever he is beaten he seems to just shift into his ooze-like form. Whether or not he is capable of feeling pain is unknown; though he reacts to taking damage during his boss battles with Shadow, he merely stood and allowed himself to be shot multiple times when confronting Omega at Wave Ocean.

Mephiles is also a highly skilled manipulator, as he was able to easily manipulate Silver and Blaze to nearly get his desired result.

Mephiles has also demonstrated the curious ability to, with one Chaos Emerald in his possession, warp the other six Emeralds to his location instantly, which he did after the Flames of Disaster were released from Elise and before reuniting with Iblis.

He is also shown to have adept knowledge on using modern technology, as evidenced by his knowing exactly which files in Dr. Eggman's computer to use when trying to persuade Silver to assassinate Sonic the Hedgehog. This is most likely due to his apparently endless lifespan and time travel power allowing him to study the world around him for as long as he needs to.

History

Mephiles was accidentally created during the Solaris Project, under the supervision of the Duke of Soleanna. In one of the Project's experiments, Solaris was split into two separate entities: Iblis, its raw power, and Mephiles, its cunning mind. Mephiles 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.

A scepter, gold on the outside, with a bright purple crystal of some sort in between the prongs, sat on the bar counter. It shook for a bit, before it shot out a beam of purple energy of some sort. It looked rather like the form of a certian anthromorphus hedghog, only... with crystals.

The hedgehog opened its' eyes, and glanced around. It was perfectly solid now. And any gamer would recgonize it. Mephiles. Damn, timelines were screwy.

A dark mist, came into the bar, and swirled around for a bit, before making itself into the form of an anthromorphus hedgehog. Only, more cyrstaline. The form solidified, and, to any hardcore Sonic fan, they would know this guy... demon... whatever. Mephiles the Dark.

Mephiles The Dark turned his head, in both directions, to get a better idesa of his surroundings. "Hmph. Nothing here worth my time.", he scoffed, then sat on a barstool, looking at the various liquids behind the counter. "They drink this stuff? It smells terrible. Plus, the effects are horrid... Maybe a good thing.", he snickered. "They can destroy themselves."

Mephiles The Dark snapped to attention, looking around for the source of the sound. "Huh?... Telephaty user?...", he mumured. His eyes wandered to one, table, then another, in an attempt to find the source, yet again. His red eyes landed upon the wolf, thing. "What?!", he snapped.

Mephiles The Dark sniffed. "Why should I help you, hmmm?", he asked, tilting his head. Moreso than the average hedgehog of his kind should be able to. Either he was flexible, or he was some type of fucked up nigthmare thing.

Mephiles The Dark straightened his head. "I might help you. If you give me a bit of information in return.", he said, chuckling darkly. "I need to know the wherabouts of a blue hedgehog. Named Sonic, if I can recall correctly."

Mephiles The Dark thought for a moment. "Alright, then. I may as well help you, seeing as I have nothing else to keep myself occupied.", he said, snickering.

Mephiles The Dark blinked. "I just need the Hedgehog gone. Rather simple, really. Make that princess cry, then I'll be able to unleash Iblis!", he said, holding out his hand to the sky.

Mephiles The Dark looked at Lazarus. "... I am not entirely sure if that would work... but we both need him dead.", he muttered. 'Couldn't kill me... hah.', he thought. "Alright. You have a deal.", he said, nodding.

Mephiles The Dark shook his head. "I'm pretty sure there are plenty of those. And he isn't that fast... on a board...", he said, then shook his head. "We need him dead. The princess has to cry for something. And trust me. I tried several methods."

Mephiles The Dark nodded. "Then we kill him. A rather simple ordeal, given the fact that making him stop running really isn't that hard.", he stated.

Mephiles The Dark sighed. "To release Iblis.", he said. Simple as that. He wasn't going to explain who Iblis was, or such.
