Aden James the Cat, more commonly known as "Sonic the Cat", grew up in the city of Midbranch with his adoptive mother Ella. Angela James, after raising Blueberry and GB James, had always loved children, decided that she wanted to consult Aegra and have her turn her into a stork. Aegra agreed to the offer, needing more storks to help create more life on Forestia, and gave her the form and sent her out to complete tasks as a stork, and she had gone under the alias "Ella" to prevent confusion between her stork form and her human form. The parents of the tomcat were Ellie Kestral and Marquis Kestral. Marquis was a servant near the start of the Anti-Humanist War. The father was beaten and treated terribly under the rule of his master. When he and Ellie found out she was pregnant, they were devastated and knew they might be killed for it. Soon enough Ella came across them and felt sorry for the couple. She agreed to deliver and raise the kit herself, though he could never meet his parents. When they were born, she named the child Aden James.
One day, Blueberry, his older brother, took Aden out to play by a field in Midbranch near a river that led to the Blank Woods. When they had returned later than Ella had ordered, she was flushed with anger, ready to scold her two kids, only to find Sonia came home and was hyperventilating and not speaking straight. She was covered with water and mud, too. Soon after her, her brother Aden came inside with a towl wrapped over him, shivering violently and also freaked out. Ella aided to them and cleaned Sonia up and asked what had happened, and Blueberry explained that Aden had fallen into a river near The Blank Woods, and nearly drowned. Ella was outraged, and demanded to know why they had been so close to the river, pulling off Aden's cover, only to find his appearance was changed drastically. He also explained he could move incredibly fast. Ella told him to explain what he meant, and began to race around the room at an extremely fast speed. She was dumbfounded by this, and soon re-named him "Sonic". (Although, the change was not legal. Not everyone referred to him as Sonic.)
Sonic lived in Midbranch for 17 years. When he and his siblings started school, their lives went smoothly. They made a lot of friends, and Sonic met a young fox-cat in his class who became his best friend. Kilo, also knowns as "Tails", suffered from teasing from other kids because of his strange appearance and mixed blood. Although, he hid this from Sonic. When he found out he confronted the kids that were bullying him and scared them, but not just out of his bad temper. They knew he was Phaetonic. It was a rumor that spread across the school, and they were scared that he would turn they Phaetonic too—or as they worded it—"turn us into demons." This made Sonic extremely upset and he ended up neglecting a lot of kids in the school, including his siblings. (Who had taken part in the rumor spreading.)
When he and Tails were around 10, they found out there were three transfer students coming to the class who was entering a public school for the first time. The students were apparently homeschooled for their entire childhoods. The three kids were soon introduced to be three squirrel-cats—Rena, Jefferey, and Sally Acorn. They were siblings. And with that, Sonic experienced something every young-10-year-old cat probably does. Crushes. He wouldn't tell anyone. Not Tails, not his siblings, not Ella, none of them. Not only that, but he was completely ashamed of it. He and Tails became friends with Jefferey and Sally, but Rena was reluctant and didn't join in on the fun. Eventually, even Jeff backed off. Then it was just those three. For the next year, Sonic, Tails, and Sally were all best friends, and stayed that way for 7 years. In a way. About a year after they all became friends, Tails began to act really strange. He would stare at Sonic and Sally a lot whenever all three of them were together, and shrugged it off when they questioned him. Finally, Sonic got his friend alone and asked what was up, and he explained that he could tell Sonic really liked her. He got extremely defensive and said nothing of it, but he was honest about it later and didn't mind Tails bringing it up—as long as Sally wasn't around.
One weekend when they were in Middle School, there was a really loud crash outside of the school. The students raced to the window to discover the source of the sound, and saw an extremely large robotic humanoid that had just destroyed a building. The school evacuated, but Sonic got curious and dragged Tails and Sally away from the crowd and they got closer to the damage. Sonic then caught a glimpse of there being a strange, large behemoth wolf-dog at the control of this robot. This was around the time police began to arrive, and told citizens to stay back. Sonic noticed that the police weren't actually doing anything, and the dog continued to caused damage. He broke free of Tails' grasp and dashed toward the robot and began breaking into it and attacking it. The wolf-dog looked down in confusion at the small middle-schooling jumping at it. He grinned and moved one of the arms back and prepared to swing at him, but Sonic was faster. He dashed over to it and sliced the arm clean off, causing it to collapse to the ground. The wolf-dog stared, along with the rest of the crowd, and the cyan cat wobbled up, completely unphased. He and the wolf-dog continued to fight eachother, until he caused it to collapse out of combat ability. The wolf-dog let out a growl and escaped, leaving the crushed humanoid and the cyan cat behind. There was a long silence, until Sonic turned back and smiled at the crowd, and they clapped and cheered. Sally and Tails raced over to him and Sally actually slapped him, calling him insane, and that he could have died. He opened his mouth to reply, when she put her arms around him and kissed him. He froze in shock, and Tails covered his mouth to hide his laughter at this sight. She pulled away, then slapped him again, and he laughed.
7 years passed, and Sonic continued to battle against the strange behemoth wolf-dog. Their time in Midbranch soon ended, when an issue with the town damage caused by he and Brock Ironfist's battles, and he had to move to Redfield Town. Tails was kind and decided to come with Sonic, but Sally was unable to go do to a business tie she had with Midbranch. He was really upset about this, when he soon began to worry that Sally would miss him too much when they moved, so he gently broke up with her. She was hurt, but knew it would be best. They had gone to Redfield Town shortly after that, but ended up living in Avinville instead, because Redfield Town was too crowded of a city for them to afford a home in. They moved to Avinville, which was a small, desolate village beside the Blank Woods, a forest stretching all the way out to eastern Darkwater Town. It was very eerie and out of place beside Redfield Town and Midbranch.
Soon, Avinville ended up being attacked by Brock, and he and the cyan cat continued their quarreling for months and months to come. Atleast, that was until he was killed by him, and sent into a timeloop by Pitch the Cat.
Sonic is potrayed as incredibly idiotic, oblivious, and really "slow" (pun not intended) Sonic often loses his temper with Pitch, who is unphased by his anger and finds it amusing. He admits to doing smart things accidentally—he is quite accident prone and clumsy. He's outgoing, cheerful, and incredibly friendly when meeting others. He also has a habit of "running away" from his problems and is scared to death of facing them. He shuts them out and just lets them grow over time, until someone forces him to confront them, when he discovers they actually aren't that bad. He's a little bit punny and a joke-maker, and finds humor in almost everything. He also tends to make fun of his friends a lot, mostly Kilo and Amy. He is also awfully neurotic. Despite his comical demeanor, he doesn't understand his friends all the time. He also has short term memory loss, and forgets things frequently. He is also a huge flirt when it comes to it, and forges his romance onto all of his friends. This probably means he is panromantic, but he is never shown to have a boyfriend directly. Sonic has chronic insanity and it causes him to often hallucinate, but it isn't acted upon or revealed until later.
|“||You know, maybe this village isn't all that bad. My first night was a little eccentric because of Pitch, but there's no denying the sheer beauty of this sunset. Although, something still feels off. I wonder what it could be?||”|

This section contains plot details about something that hasn't happened yet.
Adoptive grandson - Kani James (Pyara)
Father(s) in law - Benn Tachibana
Mother in law - Lily Tachibana
- Extremely fast (Phaeton velocitus)
- Phaeton auri
- Phaeton glacies
Sonic is an almost cyan blue cat with lime green eyes. He wears a white tee-shirt with red short sleeves and wears what appears to be rolled up shorts and a belt that is hidden by his shirt. When he was Aden, he was a sky blue cat with brown eyes. He also has a noticeably short tail that does not touch the ground.
Sonic claims he's not a very good artist, but when it's shown it's very similar to the actual character's style - therefor his art was extremely realistic. His artistic talent is passed down to his daughter Lavender, who enjoys painting and sketching.
Sonic is also talented with music, he can sing and play the guitar, but he doesn't do it as much as he used to.
Fear of water that he had developed when he drowned as a child in Midbranch. He still can't swim, either.
- Sonic has a noticable tendacy to fold his right ear, sometimes his left, separate from the other. It is unsure if it's a habit, or something else.
- Even with all of the exercise he may get from his extreme speed, he actually does not have very strong muscles, and is incapable of carrying anything more than maybe a small builded-adult Forestian cat. (Certainly not Pitch)
Sonic has a strange obsession with electric fans. This anthropomorphic obsession is caused by chronic insanity from Phaeton that Ella never agknowlages. He dedicates an entire room in his house to electric fans. He claims to have collected them for years and only he and Ella know about them, not even Kilo knows. He names them selectively, actually being direct references to other series not related to Sonic the Cat. Some examples of these names are: "Lightning", "Raven," "Kit", "Kitty", and even some not on Forestia, "Keiichi", "Naegi", "Jeff", or "Santa Claus." Apparently this is completely unintentional, possibly from his subconcious. This might be comical, but it is completely serious and he is very crazy.
