Although eager and young at heart, Spyro is a strong-willed dragon who is fearless and brave; a true hero dedicated to defending his world from all things evil. He holds a photographic memory, and as a result, has encyclopedic knowledge of all the islands and creatures in Skylands he encountered, more so than any other Skylander. He is always up for adventure, his favorite kind being treasure hunts, even if they have danger lurking. In addition, Spyro is always the first to leap into action.
Spyro is a usual quick learner, able to master new abilities in a matter of hours. Due to this, he is convinced that he can be good at everything so he can put his new powers to good use to help defend Skylands. Though Spyro isn't used to not being able to learn new abilities right away, feeling greatly disheartened when he isn't able to harness them despite being trained by Master Eon.
Although he is well in the company of his companions, Spyro possesses a headstrong and impulsive side. In The Machine of Doom, he believes that he can do everything by himself, implying that Spyro was used to doing heroics on his own before becoming a Skylander, which resulted in him struggling to work in a team at first (with his Skylander companions always reminding Spyro that he doesn't have to do everything alone). This trait has seemingly diminished during the course of being a Skylander, as Spyro gradually became more humble in Spyro versus The Mega Monsters, when he shared his victory over Kaos with the other Skylanders who helped him.
After many adventures with the Skylanders, Spyro developed into a valiant leader dedicated to scorching the forces of darkness.
Spyro hails from a rare line of magical purple dragons that come from a faraway land few have ever traveled. It's been said that the Scrolls of the Ancients mention Spyro prominently -- the old Portal Masters having chronicled his many exciting adventures and heroic deeds. Finally, it was Master Eon himself who reached out and invited him to join the Skylanders. Now calling Skylands his home, Spyro remains one of its most valued protectors, with evil facing a new enemy -- and the Skylanders gaining a valued ally.
