O Master of the ring, what is thy wish?
~ Shahra
And hey, don't looks so glum, Shahra. I'll have you smiling by the end of this. And that's not me ordering you as your master. That's a promise from me to you.
~ Sonic to Shahra.

Shahra (シャーラ Shāra), also known as the Genie of the Ring, is the deuteragonist in Sonic and the Secret Rings. She is a special, eager young genie from the world of the Arabian Nights who enlists the help of Sonic the Hedgehog in stopping the Erazor Djinn. She is voiced by Bella Hudson, who also voiced the Secretary, Blaze the Cat, Wave the Swallow, Sir Percival, in other Sonic the Hedgehog games.


Shahra first appears to Sonic when he is asleep with a cold, to beg the "Legendary Blue Hedgehog" for help in defeating Erazor Djinn, a powerful spirit who is erasing the pages of the Arabian Nights and attempting to break out into Sonic's World. Together they journey into the story via the Lost Prologue, with Shahra appearing as small pink light during levels when she talks to Sonic.

Shahra encourages Sonic to gather all seven of the mysterious World Rings, said to be the key to "opening the portal between worlds". Only when they confront Erazor at the end of Night Palace does it become apparent precisely why Shahra wanted the rings: not to defeat Erazor, but as an offering to him, such that she might return to his side. Sonic makes a wish on the ring to compel Shahra to "do what you think is right!", prompting a last-second change of heart from the genie as she throws herself in front of Erazor's strike, sacrificing her life to save Sonic's.

After Darkspine Sonic defeats Alf-Layla-wa-Layla, Sonic compels Erazor to resurrect Shahra, before consigning him inside his lamp for the rest of time. The Genie of the Ring returns to life weeping with regret for her betrayals; Sonic touchingly wishes a mountain of handkerchiefs for her, mimicking his first wish at the start of the story.

Powers and Abilities

As a genie, Shahra is capable of granting "simple wishes" for the one who wears her ring, and she is the one who contacts Sonic for help in gathering the seven World Rings inside the book.


Do not be alarmed, I am Shahra, the Genie of the Ring.
~ Shahra introducing herself to Sonic.
What!? You've got to be kidding me! It's the best told story of the Arabian Nights...or at least the second best.
~ Shahra when Sonic tells her he's never read Aladdin and the Magic Lamp.
Our world; the world of the Arabian Nights is vanishing. (Sonic: Vanishing? But how?) This is the work of an incredibly evil spirit, the Erazor Djinn. (Sonic: Erazor... Djinn?) Yes. He used his evil magic to become even more powerful. He could not bear to simply remain in the book any longer. And so he has begun to set the inscriptions free, absorbing the power of the book itself. (Sonic: The power of the book?) If our world ceases to exist, then not only will those stories be silenced forever, but the Erazor Djinn will be unleashed into your world. (Sonic: That definitely sounds like trouble. But, what do you want me to do?) I want you to stop him... You must stop the Erazor Djinn. Only you, the blue hedgehog, can do it.
~ Shahra explaining about the Arabian nights world being taken over, and asking Sonic for help.
That's easy. You are my master, having called forth the Genie of the Ring. As such, I am able to grant your wishes. Simple wishes, at any rate. Bringing you into the world of the Arabian Nights is within my power.
~ Shahra choosing Sonic as her master.
My apologies, o Master. But now, the contract has been sealed. (Sonic: Contract?) Yes. As master of the ring, I am now bound to protect you.
~ Shahra's voice from inside her ring.
Please, be serious!
~ Shahra when Sonic wished for a handkerchief.
Here we go! Into the World of the Arabian Nights!
~ Shahra granting Sonic's wish to take him into the world of the Arabian Nights
I'm really sorry, he seems to have mistaken you for someone else.
~ Shahra to Ali Baba (played by Miles "Tails" Prower)
Sonic, can't you swim?
~ Shahra teasing Sonic because he can't swim.
Did I change my destiny? Did I keep our promise?
~ Shahra
Oh, Sinbad! It Truly is you, the great adventurer!
~ Shahra meeting Sinbad (played by Knuckles the Echidna)
I'm so sorry, master... I... cannot grant...
~ Shahra's dying words.
You're gonna lose! Increase the Soul Gauge by moving the Wii Remote.
~ Shahra when Darkspine Sonic is not using enough power in his fight with Alf Layla wa-Layla.
[sobbing] (Sonic: Shahra, will you grant me one more wish?) ...Mm, hmm?
~ An ashamed Shahra's greif at both her betrayal of Sonic and the loss of a possibly close friend.
And so, the legendary blue hedgehog, having saved the World of the Arabian Nights ran endlessly, until he found his way back into his own world. Along the way, he had many adventures. But those are stories for another time. Thank you, Sonic the Hedgehog, the legendary Hedgehog.
~ Shahra's last words in the end of Sonic and the Secret Rings.



  • Shahra's name suggests she is based on the 1001 Nights character Scheherazade.
  • Shahra's way of appearing as a ball of light in the stages is very similar to Tikal did in Sonic Adventure.
  • In the original story of Aladdin, the evil sorcerer who tricked Aladdin gives him a ring with a genie in it, one that is less powerful than the one in the lamp. This may be where the idea for Shahra came from.
