Shahra the Genie debuted as a guide and supporting character in Sonic's first motion controlled title, Sonic & the Secret Rings for the Wii. In the game, Sonic stumbles upon an ancient mysterious ring, which Shahra just so happens to call home. With putting on the ring, Shahra appears and tells Sonic of the turmoil of Arabian Nights, a world inside of the book of the same name. With Sonic as her new master(bow chicka wow wow), he agrees to help her save her world from the evil genie, Erazor Djinn. Shahra accompanies Sonic throughout the levels of the book in the form of a small ball of light, similar to Tikal in SA1. She then later allows Sonic to use special moves like Time Break and Speed Break to aid him on his adventure, as well as sage advice on the world and its lore. She can also grant Sonic's wishes and every desire(bow chicka wow wow), to a small point however. Regardless, she make thousands of hankies appear out of nowhere. She obviously draws this power from Satan.
