Cynder was raised and trained under
the control of the Undead Dragon King, Malefor, spreading fear throughout
Skylands for years. After finally being defeated and freed from Malefor's
control by Spyro, Cynder desires to redeem herself for all the things she had
done while under Malefor's influence by using her dark powers to battle evil.
Despite that however, she can still be a little menacing, causing most of the
Skylanders to try and keep a safe distance from Cynder just in case.
Due to her exposure to the darkness
of Malefor's corruption, Cynder gained abilities that are related to the
elements of Undead, such as breathing dark electricity and turning into her
shadow form to dash past enemies, leaving behind a trail of ghostly allies in
her wake that will harm her foes. Being a dragon, Cynder also has the ability to
fly using her wings.
