"I'm faster than the speed of lightning!" - Zach the Hedgehog
Zach is a young anthropomorphic hedgehog with green fur with exceptions of his chest, arms, and muzzle with a light-yellow highlight on his quills, and light-blue eyes. He also has peach skin on his chest, muzzle, and arms. He has five head quills dropping from the back of his head, two quills protruding from his back drooping downward, and a short tail that's designed like a small lightning bolt.
For attire, Zach wears a pair of light-weight, hyper friction resistant green sneakers, with a white strap, white cuffs, grey soles with light-yellow toecaps, and a triangular, silver buckle on each shoe (similar to Sonic's hyper-fast red sneakers). He also wears a pair of white gloves with sock-like cuffs on his hands.
Zach is a fun-loving, adventurous, and heroic young hedgehog who loves to go on adventures and likes to run. He is also hot-headed, pugnacious, and strong-willed when he see a challenge and always having a fun attitude to enjoy a fight. However, he can be serious and determined when there is a serious threat and tends to face it what ever it takes.
Meeting Sonic the Hedgehog when he was seven, he was inspired by the hedgehog's bravery and dreams to be like him. After meeting and training under Sonic's tutelage, Zach follows Sonic and Tails on any adventure and would risk his life to protect them and any other friend he makes.
Zach also shows genuine kindness and sincere bravery when it comes to his friends. Since making many friends, Zach shows a heroic and protective personality when his friends are in danger or threatened, and hurries to their aid, showing that he always puts others before his own well-being, as well as being merciless to any enemy that tires to harm his friends.
Zach likes running, playing soccer, and spending time with friends, but dislikes evil, being slow, losing, and people picking on little kids. His favorite food is white rice, vegetables, and dairy, but dislikes meat.
