Ix remained in charge of his people, manipulating them and the other inhabitants of the cage-- namely the [[Zoah]], [[Kron]], [[Voxai]], and [[N'rrgal]]-- into obeying his orders. Finally, after 4000 years, which was only few years in the Cage, Ix devised technology to allow him to send operatives back to their home reality temporarily with the intention of retrieving the [[Chaos Emeralds]] and [[Master Emerald]] in order to bring about their full return. Ix claimed that his plan was merely to escape the Cage, but in truth he wished to resume his dreams of world domination. Upon learning of this, [[Shade]], one of his trusted lieutenants, turned against him and sided with [[Sonic the Hedgehog]], [[Knuckles the Echidna]], and their allies. Together, they defeated Ix in the Twilight Cage, despite his achieving a super transformation, but Ix attempted to trap them by using his power to close the wormhole that had enabled them to enter the cage. However, they escaped, leaving Ix and the rest of the Dark Brotherhood trapped within the Twilight Cage once more. Ix doesn't resemble an echidna at first glance much because of his cloak and hoodish head gear hides his true appearance. Ix was defeated by [[Super Sonic]] in the final battle of ''Sonic Chronicles''; his eventual fate is unknown.

Template:Character Imperator Pir'Oth Ix is leader of the titular organization in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, and the game's main antagonist. A megalomaniacal albino echidna with a knack for techno-wizadry and machiavellian politics, Ix orchestrates the capture of all seven Chaos Emeralds and the Master Emerald, in a scheme to break the Nocturnus Clan out of the Twilight Cage.

Storyline

Ix has ruled the Nocturnus Clan echidnas "for as long as we can remember" (according to Shade in TDB: Chapter 6). Four thousand years ago, when the Nocturnus still lived on Sonic's world, it was Ix who incited the tribe to war against Knuckles' ancestors, the Knuckles Clan. Bloody warfare against Chief Pachacamac's warriors only ended when the Perfect Chaos cataclysm (recounted in Sonic Adventure) destroyed the Knuckles Clan, leaving Ix and the Nocturnus with no further obstacles on the road to complete conquest of the ancient world.

However, the Nocturnus Clan itself fell victim to supernatural catastrophy: the Argus Event. Without warning or explanation, the entire civilization was uprooted from Sonic's world and cast into the Twilight Cage; a slow-time prison-dimension occupied by a host of fearsome alien races. Forced to adapt or die, Ix continued to lead the Nocturnus in the Cage's nightmare environs, brokering strategic alliances and pitting his enemies against one another, as the Nocturnus society evolved from an ancient-era tribal civilization to a sinister technological empire. The echidnas were eventually able to subjugate or pacify their Caged opponents, and turned their attentions to escape.

At the start of Sonic Chronicles, Ix dispatches Procurator Shade back to Sonic's world using warp belt technology developed by the Nocturnus inside the Cage. The Imperator himself later comes to Angel Island, to personally capture the Master Emerald. After fighting Sonic and Knuckles to a standstill (and declaring Shade an insubordinate traitor), Ix uses the Master Emerald to open a wormhole, and retreats to the Twilight Cage to prepare his invasion.

During the second half of the game, Sonic pursues Ix into the Cage and marshalls the other imprisoned races against the Nocturnus. After the heroes fight their way to the throne room of the Nocturne citadel, Ix attempts to convince Knuckles to side with the echidnas - but to no avail. After fighting three consecutive battles, the Imperator remains unbroken. He uses either the Chaos Emeralds or the Master Emerald (the game is unclear on this point) to transform into the final boss, Super Ix. But after being defeated by Super Sonic, Ix still won't go down; he teleports away as the Nocturne begins to fall apart. His eventual fate after The Dark Brotherhood is unknown.

Trivia

  • Although it is never mentioned in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Ix's first name, "Pir'Oth", is given in the title of his character information box on the game's official website, along with other trivia not directly referenced in Chronicles.
  • Ix's design is reminiscant of two other white-furred, technophilic echidnas from alternative Sonic continuities: Doctor Finitevus, from the Archie comics, and Doctor Zachary, from Fleetway's Sonic the Comic.
