Gardon (ガードン Gādon?) is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is an anthropomorphic koala from Blaze's world and Blaze the Cat's personal guard.

Appearance

Gardon is an anthropomorphic koala with gray fur and white fur on his muzzle and hands. For attire, he wears a sky blue fez on his head and a sky blue uniform with golden buttons. He also always carries a golden sword.

History

Sonic Rush Adventure

In Sonic Rush Adventure, Gardon accompanied Blaze on her mission to retrieve the Jeweled Scepter from Captain Whisker and his pirates.

After Blaze returned from Coral Cave, Gardon arrived on Southern Island where he took up residence in the Ocean Tornado's docks. Along with the other guards, Gardon was ordered to seek out the Sol Emeralds. There, Gardon immediately recognized Sonic the Hedgehog when the hedgehog introduced himself to him, as Blaze had informed him of her adventure and encounter with Sonic in his dimension. From there on, whenever, Gardon and the guards located a Sol Emerald, they would report it to Sonic, who in turn would pass that knowledge onto Blaze.

When the Jeweled Scepter when missing shortly after Blaze and her friends had reclaimed it, Gardon quickly reported the theft to Blaze.

Personality

Gardon is very devoted to his duty and Blaze, and expresses a great deal of concern for the princess's well-being as he asks Sonic to take good care of her. He also holds great respect for Blaze, addressing her as "Your Highness" (which often annoys her) and "Princess Blaze" when in her presence.

Powers and abilities

Wielding a sword, it stands to reason that Gardon has some skills in swordsmanship.

Weapons

Gardon wields a short sword with a rectangular yellow guard and sword pommel, and a black grip.
