Pravda after being brainwashed by the Dark Legion, from Knuckles the Echidna #22.

Pravda was the High Councilor of Echidnaopolis in 3236. He was a descendant of Menthor, the High Councilor that rejected Dimitri and Edmund's plan to restore the Floating Island to Mobius' surface.


Despite his official stance in favor of limiting technology in Echidna society, Pravda's home was filled with unnecessary technology and machinery, including a high-definition TV and sound system. He was abducted by Lien-Da and the Dark Legion and had a chip implanted in his brain so that he could be controlled.[1]

The Dark Legion made him withdraw from re-election as High Councilor, and support their android operative Benedict as a pro-technology candidate, in order to gain a foothold in Echidna politics.[2] The plan was foiled however when Knuckles generated an EMP which destroyed Benedict's circuits. The EMP also destroyed the chip in Pravda's brain, leaving him in a vegetative state.[3]


  • The word pravda (правда) means truth in Russian. Pravda was also a Russian political newspaper, and affiliated with the Communist Party before the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
