Due to Malefor's corruption at young age, Cynder received an ability to wield and master elements from different branches. However, unlike the purple dragons, the majority of her elements are dark, and only her element of wind is light. All elements are on the Guardian level.
Aside from that, she is capable of breathing pure dragon energy.

Before the Dark War III Edit
It's unknown who Cynder's family was, but she was born in the same time as Spyro. In 1540, the night when the Dark Armies raided the Dragon Temple, the ape king known as Gaul kidnapped Cynder's egg, therefor choosing her the be the dragons who would free the first Dark Master, Malefor. Not long after she hatched, the little hatchling was hold in chains as Gaul corrupted her with Malefor's dark powers, turning her into a terrifying adult dark dragon hybrid who was brainwashed to do whatever the Dark Master wished.
The year was 1544. As the new general of the dark army, Cynder led the Apes in the war against the dragon race and the old Guardians. Cynder's involvement tilted the war to the dark forces, she was about to free the dark master and finish the guardians once and for all. However, in 1551 a young purple dagon managed to foilere her plans, defeat her and free both her body and will from Malefor's control. She transformed back to her true form: a young dragoness, but was about the be sucked into a portal. Fortunately she was saved by this young dragon, named Spyro, and was bought back to the dragon temple.
The year was, 1552. Cynder lived with Spyro and the old guardians in the Dragon Temple for a couple of weeks. Eventually, she left because of self-guilty for all the things she did under Malefor's control, desperate to find her own place in the world. Yet still, the fates of the two young dragons were tied again later. Cynder was captured and brought before Gaul, who wanted to leave her fate to Malefor. Spyro went to save her and fought the Ape king, yet both fell to the The Night of Eternal Darkness began and Spyro was corrupted by the evil energy. Spyro, used his dark powers to kill Gaul withoutt marcy but was then knocked out by Cynder, turning him back to normal. Unfortunately, the fight agains Gaul cause the entire place to collapse, the two dragons and the dragonfly were trapped. Thanks to Spyro's time fury, the three were freezed inside a crystal and saved from the collapse.
In 1555, Spyro and Cynder were broken free from the crystal by Grublins and were taken to the Catacombs to be sacrificed to the Golem. They were saved by Hunter who helped them escape from the golem and led them to the Enchanted Forest. They rested there for a while as Hunter explained them what happend during the last three years: Malefor returned the the second dark war started.
After some troubles on the way, they finally arrived at Warfang and reunited with the guardians. Together, they overcame Malefor's dark forces and eventually defeated the dark master, imprisoning him once more and puting an end the the second dark war.
Spyro and Cynder were considered war heroes. All the species celebrated the long awaited "eternal peace", as it was called back then.
The Dark War III Edit
The Begining of the War Edit
In 1556, one year after Malefor's second defeat, Spyro turned evil out of nowhere and freed Malefor out of his prison. Cynder was there when it happened, she was there when her companion turned against everything they ever fought for. She tried to stop it, but it was too late. Cynder had to flee, terribly wounded, and a new Dark War was about to happen.
Cynder's actions before joining the army in 1557 are mostly unknown, except meeting Casi Silverscale for the first time and being introduced to his idea for a force dedicated to hunt down and kill the dark masters, called "The Freedom Flyers". Cynder turned it down at the first moment she heard of it.
When the dark war started, strange creatures of darkness began roaming the world, and obviously, they attacked the city constently. When the wall was under construction, Cynder helped fight the so called "Darkers" and got countless wounds which caused her to rest and recover for some time.
Service in the Army Edit
After she recovered, Cynder had no idea what to do next. I didn't know were Spyro could be and she was alone. Cynder then juined to army, and after three years they encautered Hunter, teribly wounded, and a roc named Jeremy. Hunter told them that his village was destroyed and he was the only survivor. Back then, the general of the army was Incendicus Blackclaw, and he wasnt interested in extra balast, so he aimed to kill the cheetah. Cynder stood up agains Blackclaw in order to protect Hunter, which led to a fight between the two dragons. The battle didn't go well for Cynder and Blackclaw was about to kill her. Fortunately for Cynder, Casi used his havity powers to throw the general off balance, giving her the opertunity to strike and eventually win the battle. As the victor, she became the new general of the army.
As the New General Edit
The year was 1561. This time, Cynder agreed with Casi's idea and the two, with Hunter and Jeremy, founded the Freedom Flyers. Casi help made thing much more easier for Cynder, he alway stayed one rank beneath her and stood by her sid, giving her advices when necessary. Even Flame eventually joined the team, togheter they had to ensore that worfang will survive until they find the dark masters and kill them. They to built a strong team of warriors and each day the were close to find the purple dragons. Unfortunately, it was all changed in one day...
The Bloody Dawn Edit
When she was informed about the massive army on its way to warfag, led by the dark masters themselves, she know the Freedom Flyers were not enough to mach them in numbers, even alongside the army, the police and the royel guard. Therefor, the ex-general had an idea: letting citizens fight as well. The responsibility for such a monstrous decision would fall on her, but she had no other choice.
During the battle, Cynder and other powerfall dragons had to take dawn the teriffing golem called Cataclysm, as Casi held it in one place using his gravity powers. With the golem destroyed, the general switched to Malefor but lost. She was terribly wounded and would have been killed if Casi didn't save her at the last moment. Flame defended her as she was barely able to move for the rest of the battle.
Cynder, like any other survivor, didn't know for sure how the battle really ended.
After the Bloody Dawn Edit
Even with all the losses, the Freedom Flyers still continue to operate. They were the only ones who were allowed to go outside the walls as the soldiers of the army were denyed of it for their own protection. Even though her reputation and the one of the Freedom Flyers were heavily affected by the battle's aftermath, Her motivation stayed the same, maybe even got stronger.
The Warfang Break-in Edit
|WARNING: This section contains spoilers for The Main Comic!|
In 1578, Cynder and the rest of Team Alpha just got back to the city from a patrol when the darkers destroyed one of the crystals and started flying into the city in numbers. Apperently, they were about to get a vocation, but it was delayed as always. As the rest of the team tried to seal the breach and fix the forcefield, the general had to face a worm golem called Kevin. She eventually destroyed it with a powerful dragon fury.
Later, Hynter noticed three alpha darkers carrying what looks like a new purple dragon. Cynder, Flame and Hunter chased the darkers in order to kill the purple dragon and prevent the rise of a third dark master. As the general fought one of them, Hunter shot an arrow through the young dragon's heart, causing him fall of a cliff. However, they had to go back and help protecting the city and then search for the body.
Her former childhood companion and friend, who turned evil a year after the Malefor's imprisoning. Since then, to her all purple dragon are meant to become evil if not sooner, then later, and before they do that, they must be destroyed if they are born. No exceptions.
Concerning Spyro, she wants nothing, but to kill him. And Malefor too.
Her closest friend for many years. The two of them often have unspoken conversations and seem to understand each other more than anyone in the team.
- Cynder was corrupted by Malefor's dark magic in her childhood, therefore her dragon type is listed as "dark dragon hybrid" (she's not half-darker or something).
