|“||"My name is Jerome Wise, and I came up with the name of our shadowy organization"||„|
|~ Wise in the comic books.|
Jerome Wise is a minor villain in Sonic X. He was the President's press secretary, but was fired after he got caught conspiring with Dr. Eggman against Sonic. In the mangas, he was a member of the S.O.N.I.C.X. organization, being the one who actually created the name after extensive searches through the internet. He was voiced by David Wills in English version. He has 42 years of age, measuring 175 cm and weighs 68 kg.
Role in the series
Wise was first seen in the first season, when the president required Sonic's presence in a party to congratlate him and his friends for their efforts. However, Jerome overreacted and sent an entire military team to neutralize and capture the hedgehog for the president's party, putting the life of Chris Thorndyke's friend, Helen, in danger. Later, for every mition he was assigned to, Wise would go beyond himself and send entire military teams to take out Sonic only for minimal tasks, such as speeches and public appearances. The final straw was during a crazy attempt to restore peace to Station Square, by allying himself with Dr. Eggman and his robotic drones to destroy the hedgehog and anyone related to him, but he was caught, exposed, and finally fired. He is seen by the remainder of the series as a homeless man with ragged clothes.
In the manga, the very same happens. Only this time, Wise is invited to an organization where many others had similar encounters with Sonic's friends, and all of them also were fired from their jobs thanks to Sonic and his friends. Wise then came with the name S.O.N.I.C.X., which began their chase against the hedgehog and his group.
