Dulcinea the Dragon, mostly known as Dulcy (or Dulce) is a female marsupial dragon from the Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon and Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series. She is voiced by Cree Summer in the cartoon.
Sonic the Hedgehog (cartoon)
According to the cartoon, Dulcy is one of the only dragons left on the planet Mobius due to mass-roboticization of the species by the evil Doctor Robotnik. She is part of a special class of dragons, known as a "protector", and has powers beyond those of normal dragons. Dulcy is one of the most powerful Freedom Fighters next to Sonic. However, due to her inexperience, she often does a poor job when it comes to landing. She sucks her thumb, occasionally gets disoriented, thinking that she's talking to her "ma" Sabina, is claustrophobic, and likes the color purple and chocolate.
Sonic the Hedgehog (comic book)
In the comics, Dulcy's role is differed slightly. Rather than being an orphaned dragon, Dulcy was one of a number that escaped roboticization under the leadership of an elder named Glint. They took refuge in the lost dragon civilization of Vesuvio, and were forbidden to go to the surface. Dulcy, too independent for her own good, sneaked out and joined the Freedom Fighters. Upon discovering this, Glint banished her from Vesuvio and stripped her of the ability to breath fire.
Afterwards, Dulcy became a full-time Freedom Fighter. During her exile, she met and became mates with an oriental dragon named Zan. However, he was abusive and racist against anyone who wasn't a dragon, and after his apparent death, she returned to the Freedom Fighters. Later, longing for her own kind, she returned to Vesuvio to ask for a pardon. However, she was followed by an attack force of Roboticized dragons. Thanks to her aid in repelling them, Dulcy was granted her fire breath back and was appointed Vesuvio's ambassador to the surface world. This came with her golden nose ring's removal (from when she was banished) and replaced by a black ring.
Dulcy has made another cameo during Antoine D'Coolette and Bunnie Rabbot's wedding, and the issues immediately following it. It can be noted that, due to an apparent coloring error, her golden nose ring is present in these appearances.
Dulcy has several special abilities. Being a dragon, she is capable of wing-borne flight, and can increase her speed by waving her tail behind her in a maneuver she calls "Cracking the Whip". She can breathe fire from her mouth or ice from her nose, and possesses the ability to see truth in others, an ability inherent in all dragons, as mentioned during the "Endgame" storyline. Dulcy commands highly sensitive hearing, allowing her to detect ultrasonic whistles like those Sonic can produce. She can belch thick clouds of smoke to hide from enemies. She can blow strong gusts, but it requires taking deep breaths. She can also inhale a vast amount of air, causing her weight and mass to increase significantly. Her tail is prehensile, and she can use it to hang from trees and roof beams and does so while sleeping.
