Fictional biography

Hoss is a space and time traveler, but not by choice. He is currently assigned to security detail under Sonic's command where he's responsible for ground transport of supplies and armaments. Hoss is always reliable when it comes to fulfilling his duties. Due to frequent time and space travels, Hoss has given up on the idea of friendship. He's quiet, reserved, and mostly stays in his room reading comics. Stax has been trying to reach out. He recently entrusted Hoss with guarding his collection of objects when he's out of commission. Hoss seems to like being a guardian.
