Pachacamac the Echidna (パチャカマク・ザ・エキドゥナ, Pachakamaku za Ekiduna) or Chief Pachacamac, He lived roughly four thousand years before the main events of the Sonic Pokémon continuity, as a leader and warlord of the Knuckles Tribe (the echidna civilization of which Knuckles himself is the known and surviving descendant). Tikal the Echidna is his daughter. He is named after an Inca city located 40 km SE of Lima, Peru
Being long-dead, Pachacamac has only ever been seen in flashbacks: during Chaos Saga thanks to Tikal (in her unincorporated form as a glowing ball), and in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, when Imperator Ix briefly recalls the face of his ancient foe.
Pachacamac was a reddish-brown echidna with yellow stripes and blue eyes. Pachacamac is shown with tan furry muzzle and eyebrows (unlike other echidnas, possibly due to his advanced age). While his height is to be remained unknown, his age is 52. His birthpace is in the Mystic Ruins or Angel Island.

Abilities and PowersEdit
During the flashback scenes in the Chaos Saga, the Mystic Ruins Knuckles Clan city during Pachacamac's time, talking to the various echidna citizens reveals some details about the clan chief. He is said to have inherited his chieftain rank from his mother, a peaceful woman whom Tikal takes after. Although Pachacamac initially loved his daughter, he lost all compassion when his wife died, becoming a cold and distant father—as well as a greedy warmonger, directing his people into a series of conquests against neighboring nations and tribes (including another group of Echidnas known as the Nocturnus Clan, as Chronicles Saga later reveals). Tikal did try to talk her father out of his belligerent ways, but ultimately failed.
Later, along with a group of Echidna warriors, he tried to take the Chaos Emeralds and Master Emerald from the Chao, as he considered the power of the Emeralds key to the Knuckles Clan's continued victories and survival. Tikal tried to defend the shrine and the Chao living there, but Pachacamac ignored her pleas and ordered the warriors to go on. Tikal is pushed aside and the Chao of the shrine were knocked out in the process. This angered their guardian Chaos who appeared and used the Chaos Emeralds to become Perfect Chaos. Pachacamac and his warriors were completely obiliterated and many cultures and cities, like the Echidna city was largely destroyed. This caused his daughter Tikal to rush to the Master Emerald to plead that it got Chaos under control, resulting in both of them being sealed away for thousands of years.
