Early life

During the Shattered World Crisis, Eggman sent E-118 Tau to the Thunder Plains Zone in Northamer to retrieve the Chaos Emerald that went off course and crash landed there. However, the Wolf Pack and three of the Freedom FightersSonic the Hedgehog, Sally Acorn, and Bunnie D'Coolette–were able to stop Tau from reaching the emerald. Sonic and Lupe the Wolf then led Tau to the center of a thunderstorm where it was destroyed by a lightning bolt.[1]

Powers and abilities

E-118 Tau has a pair of arms that can shoot out lasers at will. It can also glide easily, with enough speed to keep up with Sonic the Hedgehog.
