What makes a hero?

Spyro, the soulless, the traitor, the demon, the legend...
He went by many names. 

Spyro is the second purple dragon chronicled in dragon history. The first one was Malefor. Just like with his predecessor, the world believed that this dragon would bring change to the world. They weren't mistaken, he did.

The predictions told that a new purple dragon would stand up and defead Malefor. When Spyro was still an egg, the temple were he was supposed to hatch was raided by Malefor's followers. They wanted to keep this prediction from coming true. But the fire guardian of that time, Ignitus, saved him and let his egg float off into a small river. Spyro was found by a family of dragonflies, they adopted him and when he hatched, they made him believe he was one of their own. The legendary dragon grew up alongside sparx, the yellow dragonfly who was born on the very same day. These two could have been brothers.

However, it didn't take long before Spyro found out he wasn't a dragonfly. Together with Sparx he ran away from home and ended up back in the temple, where he met the guardian Ignitus.

When Spyro learned about his origins, he started to train with Ignitus and other guardains. Piece by piece, he freed the dragon realms from Malefor's forces. Along the way, he also saved a hatchling that was supposed to be born in the very same temple. This hatchling's name was Cynder. Spyro saved her from the corrupting dark energy. Eventually these two dragons teamed up. During the war, Ignitus sacrificed himself to give the growing dragons a chance against Malefor. And indeed, finally after three long years of fighting, Spyro and Cynder trapped the first purple dragon into a crystallic prison, that couldn't be opened by Malefor's powers. And with Malefor's fall, the war ended.

And Spyro, Cynder and Sparx lived happily ever after in the dragon city, Warfang.

Or that's how they thought it would end...

Exactly one year after Malefor's defead, Spyro turned mad out of nowhere. He freed Malefor and teamed up with him. Cynder tried to stop him but she was no match for two purple dragons. She got badly wounded and was lucky to make it out alive.

And Sparx wasn't heard of again.

With two dark purple dragons, dark energy started to spread over the world in an alarming rate. Dark dragons, also known as darkers showed up, lured by the amount of dark energy created by the purple dragons. In normal occasions, these creatures were burned by sunlight, and could even burn in the shadows when there was no dark energy to fed on. But now they were free to terrorize the world even in day light.

Not only did the dark energy bring creatures of evil, it also started to tear the world apart. It started to crumble slowly.

The purple dragons' current locations are unknown, and with the world falling apart, it's almost impossible to find them. Cynder has been searching him for years, not to friendly ask him to put everything back into place... No, she searches him to kill him.

The search for Spyro and Malefor has been fruitless until now. Nobody gets much chance to search for them either. More and more darkers show up from the depts and often they send out gigantic creatures towards Warfang, to destroy the city. They have been stopped until now. But all villages, cities and even kingdoms have fallen by now. All but Warfang.

Nobody knows what made the purple dragons go mad, or what they are waiting for to make their final move. But when they do, nobody will be able to stop them. Not the guardians, not Warfang, not even Cynder...

To be honest, I highly doubt that, if Activision ended the dumb Skylanders series, any game developer would go in this direction with Spyro.

I guess Malefor was right. Purple dragons are destined to destroy the world.
Honestly, this is the first I've seen of an evil Spyro, and I quite like it too!
