Miles "Tails" Prower

From Sonic Blur

Miles Prower better known by his nickname Tails, is a young, male, golden-yellow, anthropomorphic fox with two tails. Tails is one of the many inhabitants of the planet Mobius. A member of the Freedom Fighters, he is one of the many heroes on the planet.




Tails was born the son of Rosemary and Amadeus Prower, also having an uncle named Merlin. Due to the machinations of Dr. Robotnik, his family was scattered. His parents trapped on the other side of the galaxy and in hiding, Tails ended up living in Knothole Village with Sonic the Hedgehog and the other Freedom Fighters. Among them, he became particularly fond of Sally Acorn, referring to her affectionately as "Aunt Sally."

Freedom Fighter

Once he became old enough, Tails joined the other Freedom Fighters in their efforts against Robotnik. For all his technical knowledge, he was thought to be too inexperienced to participate in the more dangerous missions for some time. This eventually led him to embark on a solo adventure to the land of Downunda, a supposed parallel of Australia, where he worked together with the Downunda Freedom Fighters to defeat their arch-nemesis Crocbot. During his journey to this continent, he also confronted Octobot, whom he had defeated on a previous occasion. It was also during his time in Downunda that Tails met Athair, great-grandfather of Knuckles the Echidna, who revealed to Tails his destiny as the Chosen One, a being fated to reach divine status and become an even greater hero than Sonic and Knuckles.

While Tails' heroic role led him to conflict with villains such as Ixis Naugus, the Destructix, and Scourge the Hedgehog, his main nemesis was the villainous Mammoth Mogul. Ancient and powerful, Mogul was determined to prevent Tails from achieving his destiny. The two have battled on numerous occasions, the most prominent of which featured Tails joining with his alternate selves to become Titan Tails.

Later, Tails was abducted by A.D.A.M., who intended to use Tails and Shadow the Hedgehog to collect every Chaos Emerald in the universe to give himself unimaginable power. However, A.D.A.M.'s plan was brought to a halt as Eggman woke him and Shadow up. Turbo Tails and Super Shadow then worked together to send the Chaos Emeralds into the Zone of Silence. Later, Tails was reunited with his parents with the help of Sonic, Knuckles, and his uncle Merlin.

Possible Future

Tails was one of several characters featured in Mobius: 25 Years Later. In the first version of this possible future, he had married Mina Mongoose and had two children, both of whom echoed their parents relationships to Sonic with Sonic's son Manik. For some reason, Sonic was also not on speaking terms with Tails, not even showing up when the Fox's family left for Downunda.

After time was altered to make Shadow the Hedgehog king of Mobius, Tails worked together with Lara-Su to find Sonic. Briefly arrested by Knuckles, they were released when the Echidna revealed that he had only worked as Shadow's enforcer to see his plans for dethroning the Hedgehog through. Tails then assisted in the final battle against Shadow and his followers.


As is the case with several characters, Tails has all the same abilities in the comics as he does in the games. Through various methods, he has been seen transforming into several super forms, namely Turbo Tails, Super Tails, and Titan Tails.


Archie Comics produced a supplementary 3-issue mini-series in the mid-nineties, in which Tails where several marsupials befriended him including one Barby Koala. Leading into the story arc featured in the mini-series was a two-part mini-adventure in which Tails encountered a disguised robot named Fiona Fox, a robotic duplicate of a young vixen. He fell in love with her before discovering her robotic nature.

Fiona's organic counterpart later joined the Freedom Fighters, and Tails (now 11 years old) seems to have a crush on her, although she is less than interested in him as she is several years older. To make matters worse, she started going out with Sonic, severely affilicting the relationship between Tails and his friend. Recently, Fiona has revealed that she is actually in love with Scourge the Hedgehog. Tails tried to stop the betrayal, only to be slapped fiercely across the face (and knocked some distance away by the blow) by the treacherous vixen. Afterwards, Tails was left even more brokenhearted than before.

Tails said this openly to Sonic in STH#174, in which when Sonic asked if Tails was trying to catch someone's eye by dressing nice, Tails responds disapointingly by saying "Well, I was hoping...that one and Fiona..." Sonic says to get over her, and that she wasn't even worth his time.

Alternate Selves

As is the case with many characters from the comics, Tails has numerous counterparts in other dimensions. One of these is Evil Tails, a member of the Anti-Freedom Fighters. Tails also worked together with innumerable alternate selves in a battle against Master Mogul, who managed to achieve mastery of the Chaos Force.
