Storm the Albatross first appeared as one of 3 playable avian characters in the Sonic futuristic racer, Sonic Riders. Storm makes up the muscle of the Babylon Rogue's racing/thieving squad, and is very loyal to Jet the Hawk, whom he sees as both his boss and his best pal. Both in movement and in voicing, Storm comes off as a rough and tumble, no-nonsense brute, often attempting to solve his problems with violence first and ask questions later(if he remembers). However, this appears to be a bit of a facade, as when he feels he's done something wrong or screwed up, he goes to pieces and apologizes (even if its to one of Eggman's robots whom he accidently smacked). Storm is very self-conscious and doesn't take criticism well, and overall just tries to do his best in helping the Rogues, despite not being the brightest bulb in the bunch. Storm's strength and massive arms allow him to effortlessly pelt away objects in his path, flatten his foes, and create powerful gusts of wind with just one flap. He's also an expert Extreme Gear rider, and has great balance and speed despite being so large. Among fans, Storm is about on par with Wave and Jet in popularity, often disliked for his over-the-top voice acting and random bouts of stupidity, but favored for his creative design and abilities (he's often compared to Bark the Polar Bear). Unfortunately, rumor has it that his skills suck.
