When Artist was 4, his mom brought Jerkion Ed Hedgehog over to introduce the two to each other. Jerkion, however, heard of Artist's Aspergers, and thought he was a retard, so heattacked him. Artist's mother saved his life, and Artist began calling himself Artix the Hedgehog.
Artix has a few weaknesses that limit his fighting ability. The most well known is his severe case of trypanophobia, the fear of needles. He is also known to get really upset whenever someone calls him a retard, metal, or psycho. This causes him to lose concentration and focus in battle. He also doesn’t like to get wet or dirty, but it doesn’t bother him that much.
