Whisper the Wolf is a character from the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series published by IDW Publishing. The character was first revealed at San Diego Comic-Con International on July 19, 2018.

Character conception

Whisper was conceptualized by writer Ian Flynn, while artist Evan Stanley handled the character design.[2] Flynn said he wanted to add another female character to the cast but one who had a more soft and atypical personality while still able to keep up with the movement of the others. He also wanted to do more with the Wispon technology introduced in Sonic Forces.[3] Her character design draws inspiration from Sniper Wolf from Metal Gear Solid, the Major from Ghost in the Shell, and Kopaka from Bionicle.[4] Early on, Evan Stanley wanted Whisper to be blue in reference to Sonic the Werehog but this was didn't stick.[5]

Personality and traits

Quiet and withdrawn, Whisper speaks infrequently and softly.

Whisper wields a weapon known as the Variable Wispon.[6] Unlike a standard Wispon, the Variable Wispon is compatible with multiple types of Wisps. Whisper's five Wisp companions are Blue Cube, Cyan Laser, Green Hover, Orange Rocket and Pink Spikes.


Sonic the Hedgehog (IDW comics)

A trained soldier and scout, Whisper was a member of the Diamond Cutters, a group of rebels dedicated to taking down the Eggman Empire during the Eggman War. This was until Mimic betrayed the team. The psychic member of the group Claire Voyance sensed something bad was going to happen and she told Whisper to hang back on the next mission. When the team entered Eggman's base, they were wiped out by an army of Shadow Androids. Now Whisper was alone with the Wisps being her only friends left. She continued to fight Eggman's forces and rescuing many soldiers, becoming known as "the Guardian Angel of the Battlefield".[7]

Game appearances

Lucky Whisper in Sonic Forces Speed Battle.

Whisper appears as a playable character in Sonic Dash and Sonic Forces: Speed Battle. She has an alternate outfit in Speed Battle called "Lucky Whisper" for the "Firecracker Festival" event celebrating the Lunar New Year.[8][9]
