Princess Alicia Acorn (formerly known as Anti Sally or Evil Sally) is the Anti Mobius counterpart of Sally Acorn. Originally a member of the Anti Freedom Fighters and the girlfriend of Anti Sonic, Alicia left him when the group believed Anti Sonic to lack effective leadership skills. When Anti Sonic, transformed partially and now calling himself Scourge, returned to Anti Mobius, Alicia once again became subservient to him, joining the new Suppression Squad. She participated in the invasion of Mobius Prime along with the rest of the Suppression Squad, later betraying Scourge by briefly allying with their heroic counterparts.
On Mobius Prime, Dr. Ivo Robotnik threw Sally's father King Max into the Zone of Silence. On Anti Mobius, Anti Sally and Anti Sonic did this to their counterpart of King Max themselves (and later in their relationship, they remembered that ghastly deed as "good times"). From that point, Anti Sally and Anti Sonic led their gang of Anti Freedom Fighters (A.K.A The Supression Squad) against the kindly Dr. Robotnik, taking over and effectively trashing their version of Mobotropolis and constantly trying to find a way to breach Anti Robotnik's shielded HQ.

Encounters with Mobius Prime
The encounters between Alicia and her Mobius Prime counterpart began originally when, following Sonic the Hedgehog's first encounter with Anti Sonic, Anti Sally and the other Anti Freedom Fighters journeyed to Mobius Prime in a plot to discredit their counterparts by impersonating them and making trouble in Knothole. Alicia specifically tried to frame Sally for throwing a little girl into a pond among other crimes. While the plan initially proceeded well, their counterparts (the Knothole Freedom Fighters) became wise to what was happening and decided to lay a trap. After their plan was found out, she battled Sally who switched her with Sonic who defeated her easily with one punch to the jaw. She was then restrained and sent back to her world along with the rest of the Anti Freedom Fighters (StH: #24)
After failing to defeat the Knothole Freedom Fighters, Anti Sally and the others placed all the blame on Anti Sonic's poor leadership skills, and the group abandoned Anti Sonic. Also, Alicia broke up with Anti Sonic because of that, and because she was unable to tolerate his laziness. Evil St. John become their new leader of the Anti Freedom Fighters and Anti Sally's new boyfriend. Shortly thereafter, when Evil St. John's own plans failed miserably, Anti Sally decided she had finally had enough. She cast aside her relationship with him and took direct command of the Anti Freedom Fighters herself. Apart from battling Robotnik, Anti Sally was also eager to try and kill Anti Sonic, but an attempt to do so got herself thrown into toxic waters inhabited by dangerous creatures called 'Octopods', along with Anti Bunnie.

The Suppression Squad
Alicia survived, however, and remained with the group until Scourge the Hedgehog (formerly Anti Sonic) returned to Anti Mobius via Warp Ring with his new girlfriend Fiona Fox. Scourge conquered the planet on his own in a matter of days, subverting royal leadership and crowning himself King of Anti Mobius (or "Moebius" as he now called it) and Fiona his Queen. Alicia and the group were then taken over by Scourge, re-formed and re-styled into the Suppression Squad. While the others were willing to show loyalty to Scourge, Alicia, bitter at no longer being leader, held utter contempt for him and (especially) Fiona, refusing to take orders from her unless forced. Nevertheless, Alicia took part in the daring invasion of Freedom HQ, where she brought her counterpart up to speed while battling her, before the Freedom Fighters were forced to retreat leaving Alicia and the Squad (temporarily) victorious.

Afterward, Alicia and the others followed through on Miles' plan to get rid of Scourge with the help of the Freedom Fighters. Despite this they still proved no match for Scourge's might. It was only until Sonic's arrival that their true plan was revealed: To send both Sonic and Scourge to Moebius, and to seal their escape, at least until Scourge was beaten. (StH: #193, #194, #195)
However, the Suppression Squad and the Freedom Fighters went to Moebius and found Scourge in his super form. During the battle, Scourge grabbed Alicia and told her if she wanted her throne so badly she could have it, tossing her forcefully into the throne chair. Following Super Scourge's eventual defeat by Sonic, Alicia and Miles wandered through the halls of Castle Acorn discussing their potential plans for the future. When Miles mentioned her right to be ruler, Alicia responded that while she may be the figurehead ruler, they both knew who held the real power, to which Miles grinned. (StH: #196)
Like her counterpart, Alicia possesses a talent for leadership, but unlike Sally, she uses ruthlessness and other negative aspects to maintain her position as leader. While Sally is compassionate, Alicia is a sadist in every way, and is an especially vicious member of the Anti Freedom Fighters, though she has became much more outwardly calm and controlled when part of the Suppression Squad, focusing her emotions into combat.
Later, during a discussion with Miles following Scourge's defeat, Alicia pointed out that while she may be the figurehead leader, they both knew that Miles held the real authority. Alicia also has little regard for her teammates, whereas Sally is completely dedicated to her fellow Freedom Fighters.
In terms of romance, Alicia was the girlfriend of Anti Sonic until he lost favor in her eyes, and she abandoned him for Evil St. John, until he too lost his place. She has also flirted at times with Patch, who still seems to command some respect in her eyes. Mostly, however, Alicia's romantic relationships tend to involve the use and abuse of her partners, whether as an outlet for her frustrations or as a means of having the muscle to enforce her will or protect her from enemies.
Alicia has been shown to have hand-to-hand combat prowess similar to Sally's, though she also utilizes a whip in battle.
- Anti-Sally's original appearance matched that of Sally at the time of her introduction, prior to her design being changed. Sally's previous appearance was attributed to her fur temporarily being dyed by a chemical vat, but it is unknown what caused Alicia's changed look.
- Alicia's new name comes from Sally's middle name, which Sally herself also used as an alias in an episode of the Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon.
Alicia "Anti Sally" Acorn has had a variety of appearances throughout her history. For the most part, she is very similar in appearance to her counterpart Sally, with the same colored fur, hair, and eyes. When first described by Scourge, she was shown with black hair and pink fur, much like Sally at the time. She also wore a red tunic-like uniform with black boots In her first encounter with the Freedom Fighters, she wore black sunglasses similar to the ones favored by Evil Sonic at the time. She retained her black boots, but adopted a black jumpsuit in place of the uniform.
Alicia's later appearances featured a new uniform, a gray-blue one with white and gold trimming, though at times it appearances completely gray. Like Sally, she also grew her hair long, though Alicia's appeared shaggy and unkempt as opposed to Sally's. Of all the Suppression Squad members, she went through the least in differentiating herself from her Prime counterpart, as Sally had cut her hair short by the time of the changes.
