Gardon[1] is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. He is an anthropomorphic koala from Blaze's world and the bodyguard of Blaze.


Gardon is a gray-furred anthropomorphic koala with droopy ears. He has a white-furred muzzle and hands, and possesses a large black nose. He also has small, black, bead-like eyes. For attire, he wears a matching sky blue two piece uniform, consisting of a hat with a rim and a vest with a yellow collar and latches. He also wears brown shoes with gray soles.[1]


Out of the Blue

In the Imperial Palace, Gardon met up with Blaze to give her the evening report. There, he gladly replied that he had nothing to report and that all was well. Soon after, however, something impacted the palace grounds. Blaze subsequently ran to check it out, but Gardon tried pleading her to be careful. When they both got to the site of the impact however, the pair discovered that the impact was caused by an unconscious Sonic.[1] Later on, Gardon stood by Blaze's side while she talked with Sonic, who suffered from amnesia.[2] Some time later, Gardon brought Blaze the Sol Emeralds, which she used to restore Sonic's memory.[3]


Gardon is quite dutiful in his role as a bodyguard and treats it seriously while retaining a positive attitude. Despite this, he is slightly more fearful and cautious than the one he is supposed to protect, Blaze, whom he is loyal to and treats with respect.[1]

Powers and abilities

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


Gardon wields a short sword with a rectangular yellow guard and sword pommel. His proficiency with it is unknown.[1]


Blaze the Cat

As her bodyguard, Gardon is very loyal to Blaze the Cat. He has great respect for her, and often addresses her as "Your Highness" and "Princess" when in her presence.[1]
