Hunter was a rogue Overlander poacher and a foe of Knuckles the Echidna, who considered the mass murder of Mobians acceptable so long as he gave them a sporting chance. He first appeared on Angel Island, capturing Knuckles and his childhood rival Monk, only to be defeated by Knuckles. Following this, Hunter was captured and turned into a soldier by Dr. Eggman. Hunter was used by Eggman to locate and steal the Master Emerald as well as to send numerous Echidnas to the Egg Grape Chambers in the process. Hunter was killed by Super Knuckles after being thrown miles away off the island and falling into the waters below.
Poacher on Angel Island
Hunter first arrived on Angel Island some time in 3236, where he located Knuckles and his childhood enemy Monk. Hunter captured Monk and had him brought back to his vessel while having Knuckles accompany him. Once inside, Hunter explained that he wanted to have a sporting hunt, and that he'd chosen Knuckles and Monk specifically for it. Forcing the two Mobians to wear electric shock collars, Hunter had them attempt to escape while he chased after them. After locating them and killing Monk by making him fall off a high platform in Hydro City, Hunter was knocked out when Knuckles, overcome with rage, struck him with a blast from the Chaos Force. Afterwards, Hunter was imprisoned by the Brotherhood of Guardians in Haven for his crimes.
Hunter was freed by the Eggman-supported Dingoes during the take-over of Angel Island. Seeing potential in the villain, Eggman enhanced his fighting abilities and armed him with a 'Chaos Spear' that allowed him to teleport his targets into captivity in New Megaopolis (and included a Control Collar to ensure that Hunter does Eggman's bidding, though his apparent hatred for Echidnas caused him to have some resistance). Once more however, Hunter was bested by Knuckles, who transformed into Super Knuckles and cast the Overlander into the sea, where he drowned. This fate was oddly fitting, given that it echoed the fate of Monk. Before his death, Hunter captured numerous citizens of Angel Island, including Constable Remington, the Fire Ant Council, Xenin and others.
