Princess Elise III of Soleanna makes her game appearance in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). She is voiced by Lacey Chabert in the English dub and by Maaya Sakamoto in the Japanese dub.

Princess Elise is the daughter of the Duke of Soleanna. Her mother died shortly after her birth, and experiments on the Flames of Hope, conducted by the Duke, were intended to allow time travel to see her again, as well as allow humanity to correct its past sins. Unfortunately, the project became unstable, the machine they were using exploded, and the Flames split into two villainous forms; Iblis, the raw power, and Mephiles, the conscious mind. Elise, then only seven years old, was present when the machine exploded, and her father was mortally wounded when he used himself as a human shield to protect her from the

Elise is very kind-hearted and genuinely cares about her country and its denizens, as seen when she willingly gives herself up to Eggman in order to protect them.

During her adventures with Sonic, she becomes quite attached to the heroic hedgehog, perhaps to the point where she developed a crush on him; the latter is hinted at in her first conversation with Amy, where she is visibly flustered and embarrassed when Amy asked her if he (not knowing that it was Sonic) had asked her out on a date, and in the cutscene after the Tropical Jungle stage, where she desperately fights back tears when Sonic reveals that he plans of departing the city once he thwarts Eggman's plans. Sonic's presence makes Elise truly happy for the first time since her father's death.

Possibly as a side effect of the ritual that was used to seal Iblis within her body, Elise, at times, seems to possess a small degree of mental instability, as shown when she hallucinates Soleanna in flames during the Festival of the Sun and sees a vision of Silver surrounded by flames upon meeting Sonic for the first time.

Elise has some sort of supernatural ability which is unspecified, possibly from Iblis within her. When Elise and Sonic are together, she is somehow able to make him light enough to travel across the surface of water and over quicksand for short amounts of time by forming a barrier around the two; however, it is only used for the aforementioned purpose, as Sonic can still be harmed by enemies even with the shield up. In the Last Story, after the seal on Iblis is broken, she states that she can sense the presence of Sonic's spirit around them, and later senses Solaris's consciousness, allowing Sonic, Shadow, and Silver to figure out his weak point.

Presumably, as Solaris has been erased from existence, Elise is now a normal human with none of these supernatural powers.
