Friar Buck started his life as a humble student of the Tomes. When Dr. Robotnik began to attack Mercia, Friar Buck worked in secret to keep the kindgom's records and censuses intact. He kept track of the identities of those captured until he too was one day captured and Roboticized. As a Robian, he was forced to serve under the High Sheriff against the rightful king, Rob o' the Hedge.
Eventually, virtually all Robians including Buck were deroboticized by the Bem. When the Xorda attacked Mobius, Friar Buck joined Rob in participating in an attack against the Quantum Dial in the Southern Tundra.
The Eggman Empire soon replaced the lost High Sheriff with a new sub-boss: Lord Hood. With the new Dark Egg Legion growing in power, the local Freedom Fighters were forced to take refuge in Deerwood Forest, in the treetop village of Hideaway. While not one to fight directly, Friar Buck took to setting various traps in the woods to disrupt the enemy. When Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel arrived in Mercia, searching for Mighty's missing sister, Friar Buck was able to use his old records to provide them with information on her past whereabouts. When a convenient opportunity arose, Buck, along with his fellow Freedom Fighters, kept the DEL occupied while Mighty and Ray attempted to break into the enemy stronghold in order to find more information and move on from there.
Later, Vector the Crocodile, Espio the Chameleon and Charmy Bee arrived in Mercia, seeking Mighty and Ray. Thinking that perhaps the two had not succeeded in moving on in their quest, the two teams decided to raid the castle and free any captives there -- including Mighty and Ray should they be among them. Using Buck's resources, the group planned out a route to sneak into the castle and departed at night. However, it turned out that Buck's hidden tunnel was known to Lord Hood, who had left it accessible hoping that the Freedom Fighters might trap themselves.
