|~ Cynder's official catchphrase in Skylanders|
Cynder is Spyro's love interest and one of the main characters who originted from The Legend of Spyro reboot trilogy. She was once the main 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.
In The Legend of Spyro trilogy, she is voiced by Cree Summer who also voices Numbuh 5/Abigail Lincoln, Susie Carmichael and Ace in the first game of The Legend of Spyro, later voiced by Mae Whitman who also voices Katara, Rose, April O'Neil in the second game and now voiced by Christina Ricci who also voices Lilly, Vexy and plays as Wednesday Addams in the third andfinal game.
Spyro the Dragon
When Cynder is saved by Spyro at the end of The Legend of Spyro: 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 of Dawn of the Dragon, the two are seen flying away together.
In the Skylandrs franchise, Cynder is quite different from her original form in The Legend of Spyro series. She is a Skylander under the Undead element. She has shadow dash, which summons ghosts that attack enemies while speeding forward as a shadow, bleak lightning, which shocks enemies, and even has a ghost ally (possible with soul gem from Molekin Mine). As a dragon, she can use use her wings to fly, much like Spyro, Drobot, Whirlwind, Swarm, Sonic Boom, and Scratch.
She was voiced by Tobie LaSalandra, and later by Erica Linebeck in Skylanders: Imaginators.
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.
