The White Wisp is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a type of Wisp.

Appearance

The White Wisps' basic shape are that of a sphere with three tentacles, two of which are used as arms. They have one pink eye in the center of their heads, and two very alien-like antennae on top of their heads. Some members of the White Wisps can also have hair, such as Yacker, who has a blue hair-like curl on his head between his antennae.

History

Past

At some point in the past, the White Wisps, along with their other fellow Wisps, and their planet came under the threat of Dr. Eggman. Fortunately, they were saved by Sonic the Hedgehog. During this adventure, Sonic befriended a White Wisp named Yacker. Afterward, a bunch of White Wisps and other fellow Wisps settled down on Sonic's world where they would help out the residents of Sonic’s world whenever they could.[1]

The Eggman War

During the war between the Resistance and the Eggman Empire, Resistance soldiers would use Deployment Pods to send willing White Wisps onto the field in order to help on the battlefield.[1]

Near the end of the Eggman War, Barricade Town, which served as a hub for Wispon distribution, was saved and subsequently conquered by mercenary duo Rough and Tumble. As a result of the duo taking over, many Wisps, including several White Wisps, were hoarded in Deployment Pods and Wispons by the two skunk brothers.[1]

The White Wisps and multiple other Wisps surrounding Rough, Sonic, Knuckles and Tumble, from Sonic the Hedgehog #3.

In Barricade Town, the White Wisps found salvation when Sonic and Knuckles arrived to stop Rough and Tumble. During the heroes' subsequent fight with Rough and Tumble, the White Wisps and their fellow Wisps were convinced by Sonic to not let the two villains boss them around. As such, the Wisps in Rough and Tumble's Wispons left them, leaving their arsenal powerless and allowing Sonic and Knuckles to defeat them. Afterward, the now-liberated White Wisps decided to stick around and help the villagers defend their town by powering their Wispons.[1]

Personality

Being Wisps, the White Wisps are peaceful, helpful, and friendly of nature, and enjoy spending their time with others. They get especially well along with the good people of Sonic's world, whom they will gladly help out whenever they need them.[1]

The White Wisps are not much for fighting. However, they are nonetheless brave and good-hearted. As such, they do not approve of amoral behavior and will not stand idly by when their friends need them.[1]

Powers and abilities

The White Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.[1]

The White Wisps are able to generate and store their own unique variant of a powerful energy inside their own bodies. The White Wisps can as well pass on a fraction of this energy by phasing into the recipient.
