Stratford is a character that appears in the Sonic Boom television series. He is a young anthropomorphic walrus and Stratford's counterpart from an alternate dimension where Sonic never existed.
Stratford is essentially a doppelganger of his Sonic Boom World counterpart and is so identical to him in both anatomy and attire.
While in the Village Center with his mother, Stratford backed off when his tyrannical ruler, Lord Eggman, passed through. Stratford was then left astonished when he saw Sonic stand up to Eggman in public.
Stratford greatly fears Lord Eggman, and the very notion of someone standing up to him is quite shocking to him.
