Seeking a way to contain the destructive power of a broken Chaos Emerald, Knuckles the Echidna sought his great-grandfather Athair for guidance. Athair gave Knuckles the canister and advice him to form an allegiance with Dr. Robotnik for it to work. Getting Robotnik to collaborate, Knuckles caught the Emerald fragments in the canister after they made an out-of-control Dingo relinquish them, stopping the chaos from doing further harm to Mobius.
