She was stolen as an egg, but the evil Dragon King called Malefor in the underworld. The poor dragon was raised under the control of this evil dragon, and forced to work for the evil king. She was feared by the Skylands for many years until she was defeated by Spyro. Spyro was able to free her from the grip of Malefor, but dark powers still flow through her. Whilst she wants to make amends for her evil ways, most are fearful of her and try to keep a safe distance!
Series 1 Skylanders Cynder
The Series 1 figure was made for the first video game, called Spyro’s Adventure. Series 1 figures all have green plastic at the bottom of their base. She belongs to the Undead group of Skylanders, and all the figures in that group have a pedestal decorated with a white Skull. She is a purple and pink dragon, but she looks pretty tough, and is posed ready to strike. This series 1 figures can also be used in the Skylanders Giants game.
Series 2 Skylanders Cynder
Series 2 Skylanders Cynder was designed for the Giants game, and has orange on the bottom of the toy’s base. The Series 2 figure has a slightly different pose, and has silver bracelets and a silver neck ring. Apart from her appearance the Series 2 figure plays slightly differently in the video game. She has a special “Wow Pow” upgrade power, and at a certain point in the game you are able to choose from 2 upgrade paths. You can either concentrate on improving her Spectral Lightning attacks or her Ghosts and Shadow Dash attacks. The Series 2 figure can be used in the original Spyro’s Adventure game.

She looks exactly like the regular character in the video game itself.
