Powers and traits

The Warp Topaz opening a "window" for Starline and Eggman to look through, from Sonic the Hedgehog #13.

The Warp Topaz is capable of warping space. This allows the user to create localized wormholes to other places.[1][2] These "gateways" can be opened from a great distance, as Dr. Starline was able to open a gateway in Windmill Village from the Final Egg.[2] This ability also allows the user to open "windows" to the world in an instant, allowing the user to look farther and further in hours that what the Badniks could do in a day.[2] However, for the Warp Topaz to work, a source of power is required.[1]

History

Past

Dr. Starline has claimed that he has put research into the Warp Topaz over his entire career. He later managed to aquire it at a later point in time.[1]

After discovering that Dr. Eggman had disappeared after the War, Starline used the Warp Topaz's ability to create "windows" to search for Eggman.[2] After finding Eggman, who was suffering from amnesia, Starline freed Rough the Skunk and Tumble the Skunk from prison with the Warp Topaz so that they could help kidnap Eggman from Windmill Village.[1][3]

Battle For Angel Island

Starline used the Warp Topaz to get to the Final Egg. There, he was successful in helping Dr. Eggman reclaim his memories. When Starline presented the Warp Topaz to Eggman, the latter took no interest in it.[4][1]

Infection

Using his Warp Topaz, Starline made a letter appear in Tails' workshop that would lure Sonic into a battle with Rough and Tumble. Starline later demonstrated the Warp Topaz's ability to create "windows" to the world to Eggman. Using this ability, Eggman and Starline watched Sonic and Tails' battle with Rough and Tumble. When Rough was about to reveal info about Eggman to Sonic upon his and Tumble's defeat however, Starline used the Warp Topaz to create a portal that took Rough and Tumble back to base.[2]

Trivia

  • The Warp Topaz is similar to Dr. Finitevus' Warp Rings as both can create gateways to other places and are used as gauntlets, but they also need that the user to know exactly where they want to place those wormholes specifically. This might be because Starline was made as a spiritual successor for him.
