The Dark Master

The Dark Master Name: The Dark Master
Species: Dragon
Gender: Male
Description: Evil looking purple dragon
Location: Malefor's Lair
Other Info: The great evil that disrupts the entire Dragon World.

The Chronicler told Spyro all about Malefor. That he was the first purple dragon, his initial power to use fire was the first sign that he was not an ordinary dragon. He soon gained other abilities such as ice and wind. The elders passed on the secrets of the elements to him but as he gained more and more powers he became consumed with it. The elders realised their mistake and exiled him.

In this exile he created an army of apes and cracked the foundations of the mountain fortress he had created. This opened the Well of Souls that he was eventually imprisoned in and sealed with the portal of Convexity.

A prophecy was later made that spoke of another purple dragon that would be born and would make its mark on the age. As a purple dragon himself Malefor knew what this could mean and from beyond the portal he commanded his armies to continue their fight; to destroy all of the dragon eggs, save one to help release him from his prison. That egg saved by the King of the Apes Gaul's forces was Cynder, he corrupted her and turned her into a weapon to be used against the dragons and the free people of the Dragon World. Ignitus, one of the Dragon Guardians, managed to save the egg of the purple dragon and hid it from the apes.

After several years of fighting, Cynder and the army of apes eventually captured three of the guardians and tapped their power in order to reopen Convexity. Spyro, the purple dragon rescued by Ignitus, fought to rescue them before she could do so but eventually ended up causing the fourth guardian Ignitus to be captured as well. With all four elemental guardians' powers Cynder managed to reopen Convexity despite Spyro's best efforts to stop her. As the portal opened the corruption faded and she returned to her natural state, a young dragon like Spyro.

With Cynder's task complete, Gaul took the apes back to the Mountain of Malefor to wait for the Night of Eternal Darkness when their master would be free again. Spyro's attempts to stop this were for naught, even with the destruction of Gaul and the collapse of the mountain fortress Malefor was able to escape. After briefly turning into an evil power hungry form, Spyro managed to create a Time Fury which sealed himself, Sparx and Cynder for three years. When he emerges Spyro will have to face Malefor himself in order to bring peace to the Dragon World.

During the three years that Spyro slept, Malefor built up his army of monsters and began resurrecting The Destroyer and the golems of the deep. After failing to have Spyro sacrificed to the Golem Malefor issued an all out assault on the Dragon City Warfang. This distraction tactic allowed Malefor to finish resurrecting the Destroyer.

As The Destroyer neared the end of its journey around the world Spyro and Cynder managed to reach Malefor and so confronted him. Their combined forces proved too much for even Malefor to fight off and at his weakest the ancestors overwhelmed him.
