Cynder is a dragoness that was corrupted by Malefor's poisonous powers and was warped into a monstrous black dragon, forced to do his bidding. She was tasked to free Malefor's soul from the void of Convexity which would allow him to return on the Night of Eternal Darkness. In the final level of A New Beginning Spyro purges her corruption and she reverts back to her true self. After this she vowed to help Spyro defeat Malefor so she could truly be free of him. At the end of the final TLoS game: Dawn of the Dragon, she is seen flying in the Valley of Avalar with Spyro after defeating Malefor.
