I’ve received a lot of “Where are they now?” questions regarding the Sonic characters in my stories, so here you go! This information is based on when Aurora is born/very young, but majority of this information will stay the same up until she’s a young adult. Also, this headcanon is applicable to both the Boom Universe and Modern Universe, as I have Aurora in both. Hopefully this clears up any questions you had! Putting this in the “FAQ” tag for easy reference.

Team Sonic aka “Rory’s Boys”

Those last two panels actually happened between my roommate, me and my nephew and I just so happened to catch that beautiful moment on an audio recording that you should totally listen to. And yes mayyyybe I was recording my nephew because I wanted to do some animations of toddler Aurora and he’s got the sweetest voice in the universe.

Something Smells Fishy

I’ve wrangled the wanglers —
The mid-ocean anglers —
Who thought they’d never be
Caught,
With mirrored scales,
Flaunting tall tails,
Reflecting my eyes  
As they roll with the lies.

The bright of your light
Lures despite
The sharp, bloody bile
In your smile.

But I’ve wrangled
The wanglers,
The mid-ocean anglers.
Who thought
They’d never
Be caught?

I gotta say, I love your stories about Cor and his daughter. Could you write a one shot about Gladio falling in love with her once they are older maybe before the fall of Insomnia? Maybe Cor being super protective of her and so they have to keep it secret but of course it's Cor so he finds out eventually... thanks so much!!

HAHAHHAHA OH MY GOSH YES I LOVE THIS! I hope I did okay for this- had a little writer’s block when I was trying to change P.O.V’s. Hopefully it flows okay xD


A Father’s Lament

Gladiolus Amicitia was never phased by anything. Throw him into a sea of monsters with only single potion and a broad sword? No problems. Ask him to run a mile and half while inflicted with confusion and poison as conditioning training? Piece of cake! But strangely, whenever he had to sit in a room with Kari Leonis, his heart simply couldn’t take it. He noticed this little problem back when he was fourteen years old, and just getting started with his Crownsguard training. None other than Cor the Immortal was assigned to be his personal trainer, given that Gladio’s own father was busy shielding the current king and his prince for the time being.

Gladio had always been in awe of Cor Leonis. He admired the way Cor was a ‘no nonsense’ type of warrior. He also liked the fact that Cor was a ‘no nonsense’ type of father too.

“Kari, I told you to be careful with that! What if you hurt yourself?” A twenty one year old Gladiolus looked up from his set up push ups and observed the father-daughter couple a few paces away from himself in the training room. At eighteen years of age, Kari had grown into a fine young woman. Curves and muscles in all the right places, with a disarming smile to match. Her steel blue eyes both intimidated and entranced her foes, and she looked a shocking mic of both her deceased mother and her immortal father. Her long black hair cascaded in layers down her back, and her tanned, lightly freckled skin looked absolutely gorgeous. Gladio sighed and averted his gaze from Kari, feeling himself growing flustered in her presence yet again.

“You’re not serious, are you? I’m a woman, not a baby Papa! I can handle a broad sword!” Kari’s voice echoed loudly in the training room, her annoyance clear in her voice. Gladio sighed and stood up from his spot on the floor, finishing off his set of cool down exercises before approaching the Leonis family. Cor frowned down at his daughter, a disapproving glare in his eyes. Usually, people would cower in fear at the sight of Cor’s glare, but Kari merely matched it with one of her own. Gladio felt butterflies flitter about in his stomach, and he groaned inwardly and tried to make the feeling disappear as he finally reached the intimidating pair.

Gladio slowly reached out for the sword in Kari’s tight grip, and pulled it off her, eliciting a short gasp of surprise from the ravenette. Whirling to her side to face Gladio, Kari’s wide steel blue eyes caught Gladiolus off guard for a small moment.

“Uh, I need my sword back. Thanks for holding on to it?” Gladio trailed off, uncertainty clear in his voice. The shield-in-training could have kicked himself for his idiocy, but he was relieved when his uncertain tone forced a smile out of the annoyed young woman’s lips.

“You’re welcome, Gladio.” Kari’s eyes stayed stuck on Gladio’s amber gaze for a moment longer than necessary before Cor cleared his throat, reminding the two young people of his presence in the room.

“A great warrior knows of their limits. Take heed of that, both of you.” Cor stated, his voice level and authoritative. Gladio felt a lightning bolt of fear strike him in the chest, and he nodded quickly, saluting the marshal while Kari merely rolled her eyes and stuck her tongue out at her father.

“Yeah, whatever. You’re such a stiff Papa- loosen up.” And with that said, Kari grabbed Gladio’s wrist, causing Gladio to blush profusely, much to his own mortification. Gladio spluttered half an apology at the warrior he respected so greatly, only to be waved off by a stern father. “We’re going to the diner to grab some dinner! Gladio will make sure I’m home by nine- love you Papa!” Kari called out behind her as her small frame dragged Gladio’s bulky form with surprising strength. Well… Gladio shouldn’t have been surprised- she was Cor Leonis’ baby girl after all.

After ten minutes of being dragged around and out of the Citadel, Kari let out a loud groan and slowed her pace down, letting Gladio stand beside her. The young shield grasped Kari’s small hand in his large one and let out a tired sigh.

“How long are we gonna keep this a secret?” Gladio asked, his gravelly voice sounding rather put out. Kari tilted her head up to stare at her ‘secret’ boyfriend and grinned up at him cheekily.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about, Gladiolus Amicitia- ah!” Kari yelped as Gladio suddenly flicked her wrist and tugged her towards his chest. Before she could even process what had happened, she found Gladio’s searing lips atop hers, in a cacophony of biting, groaning and sensual licking, begging for entrance. Kari’s first thought was to slap Gladio away, but the way his fingers were trailing up and down her spine from over her shirt was driving her absolutely nuts.

She’d wanted to kiss him that whole time during training, but her father hadn’t left the room even once. The kiss Gladio had just gifted to her in the public eyes was a rather badly timed blessing. Kari moaned into the kiss, opening her mouth and letting Gladio slide his tongue in. The two battled for dominance, pulling each other close and mussing each other’s hair and clothes with their rough display of affection in the city centre.

Gladio was the first to pull away, a mischievous glint in his warm amber eyes as he licked his lips after seeing how swollen Kari Leonis’ pink lips were. Kari rolled her eyes and grabbed Gladio by the hand, ignoring the disapproving looks the two had garnered by some of the more traditional folk milling around, before dragging him towards their favourite diner.

“Just because I let you kiss me doesn’t mean you can get away with not paying for dinner tonight- and we get to have a banana split tonight! None of this strawberry smoothie shit, okay?” Kari reminded Gladio. The young shield glared softly at the marshal’s daughter before swinging a bulking arm over her shoulders.

“Fine, but I get to pick what we’re having as the main.”

Kari shook her head, a fond smile on her pink lips. “Noodles?” she asked, tone slightly exasperated. Gladio offered Kari a grin and nodded happily.

“Of course! They’re the best!” Gladio stated, absolutely enthused. Kari sighed and shook her head, snuggling into Gladio’s hold as the two walked towards their usual diner. The young couple didn’t notice a tall, broad figure tailing them, stern blue eyes set upon the pair as they walked together in such close proximity.

The imposing figure stalked after the two, disappointment and slight anger plain in his eyes as he watched the young couple throw physical affection at each other out in public. Passer-by kept their distance from the clearly off-put man as he made a clear beeline in the direction of the young couple, following them discreetly into the diner before taking a seat near their own booth, bringing a menu up to his face to cover up his identity.

Gladiolus Amicitia and Kari Leonis had NO idea they were being watched. Of course they didn’t- they were young, in love, and trying to hide their suspicious relationship from none other than Cor Leonis. The marshal. The freaking ‘Immortal’. The young couple continued their adorable, clingy banter, unaware of the bemused and slightly seething presence sitting only a few booths away from them.

The hidden figure, none other than Cor Leonis himself, watched the two slurp up their noodles as they talked to each other amicably. Cor flinched slightly whenever Gladio reached over the table to grasp his daughter’s small, feminine hand in his larger palms.

“Get those damn bear paws off my little girl Gladio…” Cor growled lowly to himself, sipping on a paper cup containing cold water. For lack of anything better to do, Cor grabbed some bread from the complimentary bread basket and ripped some to shove into his mouth. He made a face of disgust at the staleness of the bread roll he’s just ripped into, but continued to chew anyways. Cor watched Gladio and Kari closely as they held hands across their table and chatted comically about the happenings of their day.

Cor frowned when he realised that he could hear absolutely EVERYTHING they were saying. He would have to teach the two more about being discrete in public… after they’d been torn apart for keeping their relationship from him for so long of course. The marshal kept his steel blue eyes trained on his daughter as she suddenly stood and leaned over their booth’s table towards Gladio. Cor almost had to shut his eyes when he realised that he was watching his little girl KISS Gladiolus Amicitia full on the lips, none too innocently, in full view of the public.

Not that the marshal was a prude or anything, but this was his little girl! He couldn’t have her KISSING strange boys out in public for the world to see! People would get the wrong idea of her. They’d think she was all for carrying around a muscle-man to keep her safe and do her bidding- but Cor knew that Kari was able to out-muscle most men, even Gladiolus at the best of times, and she knew plenty of combat and self-defence arts to keep herself safe. Cor had seen to that in her formative years, up until now.

“Babe… let’s go back to my place real quick. It’s been too long since we’ve… you know?” Gladio’s low, gravelly voice travelled over to Cor’s ears and the over-protective father could not take another second of it. The marshal stood up from his spot, not caring that he’s upturned the basket of stale bread he’d unknowingly been ripping into tiny pieces onto the table, and stalked his way rather intimidatingly towards Gladio and Kari.

Kari’s eyes widened in alarm at the sight of her father approaching them. She had the decency to flush red in embarrassment, though Gladio had his back turned to the marshal- he had no idea what was about to go down.

Cor didn’t know whether that was a good thing or a bad thing. Either way- Gladio was going to get his ass kicked. How DARE he touch his daughter in such an impure way? Without even asking for his blessing to date her!

“Papa…” Kari gasped out quietly, stepping out from behind Gladiolus and placing herself between her father and her boyfriend protectively. Cor frowned at the gesture, slightly troubled by it, but continued to make his way forward until he was close enough to Kari to grab her hand and pull her out of the diner. Gladiolus finally caught sight of him and Cor would have laughed in any other circumstance at how comically funny Gladio’s thick eyebrows looked, raised so high on his forehead out of shock of seeing him in the diner.

“Gladio, follow us. We need to talk.” Cor ground out, grasping his daughter’s wrist tightly in his large calloused hand. He proceeded to drag her out, gently but firmly, out of the diner. Kari knew better than to protest against her father when he was in a mood. She followed Cor obediently through the crowded diner and out the door. Cor felt a tug on his arm and he shot Kari a scathing glare, to which Kari actually lowered her gaze and bit her lip nervously.

Cor’s gaze softened slightly at the gesture. It had been a while since his glares had been able to truly scare her. He felt a little bad about it, but it couldn’t be helped.

“Did we pay the bill?” Kari finally asked, her voice strangely soft- full of trepidation. Cor let out a sigh at his daughter’s skittish behaviour and nodded in confirmation.

“Yes- charged to the Crownsguard Fund.” Kari nodded slowly, turning her cold blue eyes towards Gladio, who had been smart enough to read the whole situation, opting to stand an acceptable distance away from Cor’s baby girl. Cor regarded the two with stern eyes, glaring at them for a few long moments. He could sense their nervousness in their expressions, their stances, their breathing…

Cor finally let out a tired sigh and raised his free hand to his temple and massaged it slowly. His grip loosened on Kari’s wrist, Kari grasped his large hand in her small ones, squeezing lightly out of nervousness.

“Papa…? Are you alright? Are you mad? I’m sorry.”

Gladio nodded, staring right at Cor with his warm amber eyes. His gaze was filled with apprehension. “Me too. I’m sorry too. I should have told you about us… I should have asked for permission-”

“How long?” Cor interjected, staring right at Gladio, ignoring his daughter’s questions for the moment and sizing up the young man who stole his girl’s potentially fragile heart. He didn’t want to ever have to hurt Gladio for hurting his little girl. Gladio was a good young man. Cor respected his mettle and his dedication and pride to being the next king’s shield.

He also didn’t want to kill his pupil either.

Gladio gulped and stared Cor right in the eyes as he answered. “Seven months, marshal.”

Cor felt Kari’s hand squeeze his own, but he didn’t respond to the silent request for reassurance. Instead, he bore down on Gladio with his eyes.

“Have you touched her inappropriately?” Cor asked quietly. Kari’s grip tightened significantly at his question, and though he already seemed to have his answer, Cor refused to show any reaction until Gladio admitted it himself.

Gladio squirmed slightly under his trainer’s glare before nodding carefully. “I have never done anything she didn’t want.”

“It’s true Papa.” Kari piped in, her voice wavering slightly. It was at this point that Cor had to look over at his precious little girl… wait, she wasn’t so little any more. She was a woman… a woman in love. Cor turned his body slightly so that he was fully facing his daughter, and his heart hurt with a strong pang as he spied the first few drops of tears dripping down her cheeks.

Cor Leonis, the father, couldn’t keep up his tough charade any longer. He’d scared his daughter to the point of tears, and he felt absolutely terrible for it. She was obviously happy with Gladiolus, and Gladiolus seemed to have immense respect and love for his little girl. If they’d been together for seven months, even if the first five months of their relationship was not known to him, Cor knew that Gladio was definitely dedicated to Kari Leonis and her happiness.

Wrapping his daughter up in his gentle embrace, Cor smiled slightly and hummed Kari’s favourite lullaby- if a little off tune- to calm his precious girl down. He felt Gladio take a few steps closer to them, and he turned his head to the young man and rolled his eyes mockingly.

“You two are terrible at hiding your flirting in the training room. It was very uncomfortable for me to watch. And both of you didn’t disclose anything to me. What did you think I’d do if I knew?” Cor asked, his voice suddenly incredulous as he smoothed Kari’s hair gently and regarded Gladio with a raised eyebrow. Gladio smiled sheepishly and shrugged his shoulders.

“To be honest, I wanted to tell you as soon as we shared our first kiss because I was scared shitless. But Kari was too scared to tell you, so I kept her secret-”

“Gladio!” Kari gasped, her cheeks red and her eyes looking raw from her tears. Cor grasped her small face in his hands and wiped away her remaining tears with his thumb before pressing a tender kiss on her warm forehead.

“You can tell me anything, sweetheart.” Cor simply said, hoping to assuage Kari’s fears. “Gladio is a good guy- I approve.”

Kari immediately threw her arms around her father’s shoulders, and the marshal could only lift her slightly as they hugged, holding onto her small frame tenderly as he felt a heavy feeling sink into his chest. Kari soon removed herself from her father’s embrace and quickly turned towards Gladio and flung herself right at him.

Gladio readily caught her, and twirled her around happily. The two shared a short kiss with each other and Cor’s heart broke a little at the sight of his little girl and his long-time charge growing up quickly, right before him.

While the two were locked in their own world of happiness, they didn’t notice Cor had departed from the scene until Kari’s smartphone buzzed with a message alert from her father.

‘I’m heading home. As long as Gladio gets you back before midnight, you’re free to do as you wish. Just exercise some responsibility and use protection when… you know. I love you Kari.’

Kari smiled and pocketed her phone, squeezing Gladio’s hand as they made their way to Gladio’s own apartment. The two didn’t notice a rather misty eyed Cor standing behind a building, his hand clenched at his chest, as he watched his little girl walk away with the man who became her new hero.

Cor could still remember the little Kari who used to ask him for bed time stories and cuddles. He wanted that Kari back. He missed that Kari dearly.

“I guess… those are all just some good memories now.” Cor sighed quietly to himself before making his way back to his empty apartment. That night, Cor sipped on a beer while flipping through Kari’s baby pictures.

“You’ve grown up well. I’m so proud.”
