Appearance

History

Past

At some point in the past, the Cyan Wisps, along with their other fellow Wisps, and their planet came under the threat of Dr. Eggman. Fortunately, they were saved by Sonic the Hedgehog. Afterward, a bunch of Cyan Wisps and other fellow Wisps settled down on Sonic's world where they would help out the residents of Sonic’s world whenever they could.[1]

At some point after the Wisps settled on Sonic's world, Whisper the Wolf got a Cyan Wisp to join her team. This Cyan Wisp would help out Whisper by powering her Variable Wispon under various circumstances.[2]

The War

During the War between the Resistance and the Eggman Empire, Resistance soldiers would use Deployment Pods to send willing Cyan Wisps onto the field in order to help on the battlefield.[1]

Near the end of the War, Barricade Town, which served as a hub for Wispon distribution, was saved and subsequently conquered by mercenary duo Rough and Tumble. As a result of the duo taking over, many Wisps, including several Cyan Wisps, were hoarded in Deployment Pods and Wispons by the two skunk brothers.[1]

In Barricade Town, the Cyan Wisps were liberated from Rough and Tumble when Sonic and Knuckles arrived and stopped the two mercenaries. Afterward, the Cyan Wisps decided to stick around and help the villagers defend their town by powering their Wispons.[1]

The Fate of Dr. Eggman

During a trip to one of Dr. Eggman's bases, Whisper and her team of Wisps (the Cyan Wisp included) encountered Sonic and Silver. Despite Whisper's initial mistrust, once her Cyan Wisp and other Wisps openly greeted Sonic, Whisper chose to team up with the duo. When the newly-formed trio then took on a horde of Badniks, Whisper's Cyan Wisp came to Whisper's defense when she was at the mercy of the robots. Fortunately, Sonic and Silver destroyed the Badniks before they could harm them.[2]

Battle For Angel Island

When Whisper joined the Resistance on a mission to liberate Angel Island from the Eggman Empire, her Cyan Wisp and other Wisps came along with her and aided her in battle. After accomplishing their mission, Whisper's Cyan Wisp celebrated their victory with Wisper.[3][4][5]

Bonds of Friendship

After Whisper and Tangle got Jewel and the stolen goods from the Mineral Museum back from the Babylon Rogues, Whisper's Cyan Wisp would help clean up the museum and return all the stolen stones.[6]

Personality

Being Wisps, the Cyan Wisps are peaceful, helpful, and friendly of nature, and enjoy spending their time with others. They get especially well along with the good people of Sonic's world, whom they will gladly help out whenever they need them.[1]

The Cyan Wisps are not much for fighting. However, they are nonetheless brave and good-hearted. As such, they do not approve of amoral behavior and will not stand idly by when their friends need them.[1]

Powers and abilities

The Cyan Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.[1]

The Cyan Wisps are able to generate and store their own unique variant of a powerful energy inside their own bodies. The Cyan Wisps can as well pass on a fraction of this energy by phasing into the recipient.
