Today, Sega unveiled a new Sonic Boom character: the jungle badger Sticks. Sticks is a new addition to the Sonic universe and will play a major part in Sonic Boom as one of the core ensemble members alongside Sonic, Tails, Amy, and Knuckles.

Before meeting her friends, Sticks spent most of her life alone in the wilderness and still has plenty to learn about how to interact with others. For more about the new addition to the cast, watch her announcement trailer.
