Hero Chao

From Sonic Retro

<forumuser name="Hero Chao" /> Hero Chao is a veteran scener in the Sonic community. She is a member of several forums including Sonic Retro and Sonic Fan Games HQ and is an artist in the Sonic community.


Hero Chao has been a part of the Sonic scene since 1997 at the age of 10, frequenting such places as, Sonic HQ, Secrets of Sonic the Hedgehog and SegaSonic Network.

In 2003 she met her now-fiancé InstantSonic via the Sonic the Hedgehog Info Page which hosted his radio play Sonic and the Death Cheese. This inspired her to want to participate in the voice-acting part of the scene so she found InstantSonic's site and contacted him through it asking to audition for a role in his next production.

In 2009, Hero Chao and InstantSonic organized and hosted Sonic Amateur Games Expo 14. She was responsible for the website creation and management, event scheduling, and public relations, as well as obtaining two first-time guests of the Expo, Spencer Nilsen and Tom Payne, the latter of which having contributed amazing never-before-seen early Sonic character art as well as early level concepts for Sonic the Hedgehog (16-bit) and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (16-bit) to the scene.

In 2010, the duo along with fellow scener ila hosted Sonic Amateur Games Expo 2010. In May 2010 Hero Chao moved to Seattle to attend culinary school. InstantSonic plans to follow her up as soon as possible.
