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.
Cynder is an Undead element Skylander debuting in Skylanders Spyro's Adventure. She has two other variants, appearing in each of the first threegames: Cynder Series 2 (Giants) and Phantom Cynder (Swap Force).
She was released as an individual character in Wave 3 of Skylanders Spyro's Adventure. But she later was released in a triple pack with Lightning Rod and Zook in Wave 4.
