200 years have passed since the Great War ended. The Great War, a conflict to free the world from the grasp of tyranny held by Doctor Robotnik.
Robotnik's downfall marked the end of the great war and the people celebrated. The greatest of the heros was Sonic the Hedgehog.
200 years have passed and Shadow stands at the memorial to the event. As the original ultimate life form he has been untouched by the ravages of time and has lived through those two centuries.
This time he is accompanied by his seven brothers, relative youngsters who are thirty-six years old each. For them the Great War is nothing but history although it is a lesson that must be remembered.
And although they don't know it yet the next great battle begins in a few weeks with the coming of The Darkness.
Felt like doing this for some time. This also explains why the Chaos Hedgehogs never meet the main SEGA crew, they are two centuries too late.
