|~ -Cynder's official catchphrase in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure|
Cynder is Spyro's love interest and one of the main characters in The Legend of Spyro trilogy. She was once the primary antagonist in The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning, but became a protagonist at the end of the game after being freed from the Dark Master's control by Spyro. She is also one of the playable Skylanders in the Skylanders series.
While just an egg, Cynder was stolen by the henchmen of an evil dragon named Malefor and raised to do his bidding. For years, she spread fear throughout the land until she was defeated by Spyro the dragon and freed from the grip of Malefor. But dark powers still flow through her, and despite her desire to make amends for her past, most Skylanders try to keep a safe distance… just in case.
Spyro the Dragon
When Cynder is saved by Spyro at the end of A new Beginning, she develops feelings for the purple dragon. Over times he realizes Spyro truly cares about her and slowly starts to care about him and after the end of the final game admits her feelings for him. In a post-credits scene the two are seen flying away together.
Cynder is quite different from her original form. She uses Undead attacks like shadow dash, which summons ghosts that attack enemies, bleak lightning, which shocks enemies, and even has a ghost ally (possible with soul gem from Molekin Mine). As a dragoness, she can use flight, much like Spyro, Drobot, Whirlwind, Swarm, Lightning Rod, Sonic Boom, Warnado, Jet-Vac, Gill Grunt, Pop Thorn, Scratch, Boom Jet, Free Ranger, and Blast Zone.
