    Carmella (part 3 trololololol)

    After wandering the land with Tundra and Forest for 4 years, Carmella finally decided to get revenge. The now 13 year old went to Robias' hideout in the desert, the very place she was taken to 4 years ago. When she got there, she attacked by a robot in shape of a hedgehog. After fighting for 10 minutes, the robot suddenly asked "Carmy? Is that you?" It was Carmella's father's favorite nickname for Carmella. Turns out, her dad lost the fight against Robia, and was brought to Robia's old master, Eggman. He was roboticized. They agreed to fight Robia.
