It was only 51 years ago when I meet Doctor Gerald Robotnik. I helped him out of a tight situation, and he said he needed help with his granddaughter, Maria, with her NIDS(See Shadow the Hedgehog). I told him I could help, since I wasn't able to get sick. I came up to the space colony ARK, and he said he needed to take some of my DNA. I allowed him to, and once he did that, he knocked me out cold. Then, using more of his sly, convinced Black Doom to give him his DNA to the Shadow clone. He was taken down to Mobius and put in jail while I was left up there for 26 years when I broke out with only Sapphire in hand and warped down to Mobius.
