Enigma - Skylander ReviewEnigma is a new Magic Trap Master Skylander making his debut in Skylanders Trap Team. He was brought to Skylands by a Mabu Mystic who one day wanted someone to play Skystones with. The Mabu was able to open a gateway to a nameless place between the worlds and through it came Enigma. Enigma thrilled the Mabu with stories about his mysterious homeland. Unfortunately minions of Darkness learned of these stories and the open gateway, and saw it as another realm to conquer. A legion of minions gathered to lay siege on the open gateway, but the Mabu had no idea about how to close it. With no time to spare, Enigma chose to use is staff of Mystery to seal the gateway forever. This saved his homeland and people from invasion, but it also trapped Enigma in the Skylands forever.

Short CutShort Cut is a new Undead Trap Master making his debut in Skylanders Trap Team. Short Cut made the finest clothing in all of Skylands. His magic shears could cut through any cloth, any thread, and follow any pattern. One day a fleet of skeleton pirates appeared in flying ships. They had just stolen a cargo of golden yarn from some local fortunetellers. The pirate captain demanded that Short Cut use the yarn to make him a magic hat that would tell him the future of anyone in Skylands. Short Cut did not want his worked used for evil, so that night while all the pirates were sleeping on their ships, he snuck onto the ships and sewed together the pants and shirts of the sleeping pirates so they couldn’t fight. Then he took his magic shears and cut all of the sails and wrapped them around the ships which prevented the pirates from escaping. Master Eon found out about his brave capturing of the pirates and offered to make him a member of the Trap Team. Now Short Cut uses his Traptanium Shears to cut evil’s future short.
