Stone serves as the main antagonist of the comic, appearing as the main antagonist of "Hedgehog Day Afternoon", and the main protagonist of "The Secret Of My Distress".
After the events of the first film, Agent Stone found a contingency plan by Robotnik that was left for Stone prior to his final fight with Sonic in case he was defeated so that Stone could survive without him. In it, Robotnik gave Stone instructions on how he could succeed him and take over the world. Stone's first step was to retrieve Robotnik's Control Glove so he could control Badniks, which was located in a bank. Stone hired Lindsey and Jason, a pair of thieves, to rob the bank and find the glove. However, Lindsey and Jason turned on him after they realized the power of the Badniks and attempted to take the glove for themselves, but Stone managed to hack the final Badnik they summoned and used it to take the glove from them. After gaining the Robotnik Control Glove, he had to ingratiate himself into the society of Green Hills and slowly take it over from inside. To do this, he became a Barista for a coffee shop, but his boss, Karen treated him very poorly, even spitting his own latte in his face in disgust and telling him to clean up her mess.
He remembered that Robotnik had warned him about all sorts of people, such as suckers, scammers, and people without ambition. Stone told one of his co-workers that he would be controlling everything in the shop in about a week, and would make Karen bow to him. On his first day, his co-worker Tina asked him to cover for him the weekend as she had an important family meeting to attend, which Stone accepted, but Tina was lying about the family meeting, instead wanting to go to the beach and take a week off. Believing she was clever for tricking Stone, she had only fallen into Stone's trap, who had several Badniks dismantle her car behind her so that she couldn't go back home, leaving her stranded on the beach. Since Tina could not come to work, Karen replaced her with Stone, who moved up in the ranks.
Karen's assistant manager became suspicious of Stone and directly told him about it. The next day, Stone had several Badniks kidnap the assistant manager, but is not shown what happens to him afterwards. With both Tina and Karen's assistant manager missing, Stone became the new assistant manager. However, Stone decided to keep the only employee who had not wronged him around, but only for his own benefits. The next day, he framed Karen for a crime that she didn't do, getting her arrested. He then gave her a phone call while she was in prison, telling her that the shop is in good hands now. Only when he hanged up, did she realize that it was Stone.
With Karen gone, Stone became the new owner, and he could change the name of the shop to whatever he wanted, changing it to Mean Bean Coffee Café.

A few months later, Agent Stone was still making lattes for his clients, though he still missed Robotnik, and his job with him until he got a text from his boss about making his Austrian goat latte, which got him excited, and he kicked everyone out. of the store to celebrate and announce the return of his boss.
After Robotnik appeared with a new look, as he was bald, and with a new mustache, he was well dressed for his arrival, and gave him his latte until he met Robotnik's new ally, Knuckles, a warrior echidna, and He cried out in pain as he shook his hand because Knuckles had big fists.
Stone, Robotnik, and Knuckles opened Robotnik's new base, and he learned about the Master Emerald, an emerald of great power, and was amazed at the power his boss would have, as he would use it to exact revenge on Sonic. He stayed in the cafeteria while Knuckles got upset with Robotnik for leaving Stone behind.
A day later, he was looking for new suits for Robotnik, but was interrupted by Wade Whipple, a police friend of Sonic's, who thought he was a robot because of his hands, though Stone proved to be human, and was questioned by Wade about bagels. Stone was rescued by Robotnik, who possessed the power of the Master Emerald, and in order not to abandon his boss again, he decided to go with Robotnik to form a tornado by the power of the Emerald.
With the Death Egg Robot built, Stone was inside with Dr. Robotnik as they celebrated the destruction until Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles showed up to stop them, and he had to learn how to use the robot, and Robotnik launched the missiles at the heroes. During the fight, Stone was knocked out until the robot's destruction. However, Stone somehow survived, and disguised himself as a G.U.N. agent, and heard something called Project Shadow.
Stone is an average heighted slim man in his late twenties to early 30s with short, slicked black hair and brown eyes and has a neatly trimmed beard. He also wears a black suit with a navy shirt and black tie.
At first, Stone appears to be a normal and level-headed man and very loyal to his boss, as he is used to Robotnik's antics and understands him more than anyone else. He has also shown to be a complete subservient to Robotnik, as he takes the abuse and humiliation from Robotnik without question. He also genuinely cares for or admires Robotnik, to the point of making a latte for him, and considering Robotnik enjoyed the latte, Stone is the only person Robotnik has shown any kindness to.
However, it is shown that Stone can be nearly as dangerous as Robotnik himself in the comic book Sonic the Hedgehog 2: The Official Movie Pre-Quill. How he looks up to Robotnik goes even further, as he is obsessed over him, missing him during his absence, and having coffee drinks forming the shape of his and Robotniks face with heart shapes surrounding them.

- Agent Stone is quite similar to Snively, as they both served under a version of Robotnik and were quite submissive to him. However, Snively is his Robotnik's nephew and longs to usurp him, whereas Agent Stone seems to genuinely admire his Robotnik despite not being related to him.
- He can also be seen as a mix of Orbot and Cubot from the video games, as he understands what Robotnik's words mean but somehow doesn't share the intellect with his boss.
- He can also be seen as a parallel to Grimer Wormtongue from Fleetway's Sonic the Comic, as they are both loyal and competent assistants to their Robotniks with a pathological need to serve him that tolerate his abuse without question. Aside from that, they have countless other similarities.
- In the novelization of the film, Agent Stone fills the role of Commander Waters as the one who visits Tom and Maddie at the end.
- The name of Agent Stone's cafe is likely an allusion to the spin-off game, Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine.
