I should think of a metaphor...

I got it.

Characters are like permanent marker on a whiteboard that is the story. You can't erase or edit them, only add on to them.

BUT! Let's say that events are written in dry-erase marker. Dry-erase marker over permanent marker can erase permanent marker, but in order to do so, you have to totally cover it - with a big event that directly affects the character and changes them. Characters can only change due to their experiences.

(Of course, a suitably damaging event that covers the entire character would erase them - their death, so to speak.)

Sonic throughout this whole thing has been more like a character written in dry-erase - his intelligence constantly changing and therefore also his personality, somewhat. But it's not due to any drastic events, it's literally, "I'm bored now, change him." And now it's affected Knuckles, too.

... I think that's a pretty good metaphor. Why didn't I think of that instead of writing a long commercial for Creed! (Which undersells the movie, honestly. It's not a Rocky movie, it's a Creed movie, but Rocky has the more defined personality by the time of the movie [thanks to having had a million of them] which is why I focused on him. Creed needs a sequel though.)

Not really gonna spend too much time on the awkwardness of the True Love Fund thing. I've a feeling he probably actually felt a little guilty for that one.

This really is an amazing mess of a comic. Some ideas could be interesting if they weren't used so poorly.
