Concept and creation
Aleena was initially slated to be a ‘Mom’ character with no other instruction given. The design team didn’t really have many ideas. CrimDa decided to take design inspiration from mother characters in Dragonball Z, particularly Mrs. Briefs, as a nod to the many references Sonic often makes to Dragonball.
As she was being designed her personality evolved to become more of a “fan” of her son, Sonic, to the point where she was designed wearing Sonic merchandise. (Even though this design idea was dropped, it seems that the writers have kept some inspiration of that in her personality.)
Several quill designs were considered along the way until one was reached that seemed simple and manageable. The blue tinge on her hair was a last-minute addition voted on by staff to make her seem more lively and fashionable.
Aleena’s younger design, however, was inspired by 80’s fashion to mimic a similar time period that Sonic could have been a child in. Her design also took inspiration from aviation attire, as much of her story at that time would revolve around it. This can be seen in accessories such as her aviation goggles. She also, notably, has a similar hairstyle as Tifa Lockhart from FF7.
Aleena has a shade of fuchsia purple fur that also doubles as her hair, which is mixed with dark blue highlights that fade into the purple fur cleanly.
Aleena enthusiastically cheers on Sonic in what he does. She is also a bit of a trollmom.
Powers and abilities
- Aleena's name comes from Queen Aleena of the Sonic Underground cartoon show released in 1998, who is one of two canonical mothers Sonic the Hedgehog has had, the other being Bernadette Hedgehog from the Sonic the Hedgehog comics series.
