Zap was born into the royal family of water dragons, but a riptide washed him to a distant sea, where he was raised by electric eels. Growing up, he excelled in everything and even created a special gold harness that allows him to carry an endless electrical charge and shock things at a great distance. Zap also proved to be a gifted racer, outstripping any opponent... with the possible exception of the dolphins. With them, it became a good natured challenge to see who could keep up with Zap. But an electric current in his wake often reminded them who they were dealing with. Despite his mischievous streak, Zap grew to be a true protector of the seas and Skylands.
Zap - Glow in the Dark was a special variant of Zap from Spyro's Adventure. It was one three Glow in the Dark figures to be randomly found on shelves along side the regular character. The figures are completely painted in a glow in the dark paint. Like all special painted variants of Skylanders, the characters will not appear as "Glow in the Dark" in the game. The other Glow in the Dark figures that were part of the Spyro's Adventure set are: Wrecking Ball - Glow in the Dark and Warnado - Glow in the Dark.
