"Fear the Dark!"
    —Hex's official catchphrase

Hex is a dark elven sorceress in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. She is of the Undead element.



Since her Undead transformation, Hex has become spooky, mysterious, and even sinister, striking fear into the hearts of her enemies. She has also developed a fondness for skulls. It has been said that Hex has laughed only once since her transformation -- apparently at an incident involving Trigger Happy, Slam Bam, and a gold coin in the rear end. She also has a tendency to act on her own, even if it means not sharing her plans with her allies.


Long ago, Hex was a gifted and powerful sorceress who traveled deep into the underworld to confront the Undead Dragon King named Malefor, who made several attempts to capture her to learn her secrets. Though she successfully battled the dragon, Hex returned from the underworld changed – having unwillingly joined the ranks of the Undead. Many are wary of her since her transformation, suspecting she has used her powerful magic for evil purposes. But Eon trusts her, and views her as a valuable Skylander ally.



Hex was a skilled elven sorceress whose spell-casting ability once attracted great attention from all across Skylands. Many years ago, news of her power even passed to the dark and dangerous underworld. Here, the evil Undead Dragon King, Malefor, hatched a plot to kidnap her. But try as they might, Malefor's minions could not track down the slippery sorceress. Together with the entire local magic community of soothsayers, sorcerers, witches, wizards and warlocks, Hex was forced into hiding. A life on the run was not a great deal of fun, so Hex decided to take on the terrible Dragon King.

She descended into the darkest depths of the Undead underworld. Here, to Hex's surprise, the Undead army of Rhu-Barbs, Shadow Knights and Bone Archers held back from attack. But soon she realized the gruesome reason why: by entering the land of the Undead, she had become one of them. A furious Hex unleashed her most destructive magic on Malefor. When the smoke cleared, Hex was back in her village, but her Undead legacy remained. Nowadays she is the protector of magic-wielders everywhere, not to mention one of Eon's most admired Skylanders.[1]

Skylanders: Spyro versus The Mega Monsters

Hex was mentioned as one of the two Skylanders (the other being Cynder) who was assigned by Master Eon to investigate a mega-sized cockroach that was terrorizing Lucky Lagoon. However, Kaos, who claimed to be renouncing his evil ways to battle evildoers, dealt with the problem long before the two Undead Skylanders arrived on the scene.

Skylanders: Cynder Confronts the Weather Wizard

Hex transported to Cloudless Desert to inform Cynder and Zook that Master Eon wanted to see them. When a freak rainstorm appeared, the shower turned the sand dunes to quicksand that threatened to pull the beachgoers into it. Hex participated in saving the inhabitants, but received some negative feedback of her sinister disposition from two Mabu, whom Cynder soon drove away.

At the Eternal Archive, the Skylanders learned that there have been multiple reports of unusual weather conditions throughout Skylands. They soon read a distress letter from Morbo, the Night Mayor of the Isle of the Dead, where Hex, Cynder and Zook would venture to to investigate if the weather is linked to what's happening on the island and find the Undead segment to the Mask of Power. Once there, the Skylanders are attacked by the aggressive undead wildlife, but are saved by a spectre named Flunky and his pet Stump Demon, Dogwood. They are guided to the Ghost Town, where Mayor Morbo explained to the Skylanders of the sunny weather conditions that threaten to kill their undead crops, and the sudden weather was caused by a powerful Weather Wizard named Hurrikazam. Hurrikazam soon appeared in town, demanding the villagers to hand him his tribute of pies and spiriting away the inhabitants tat provided them to the wizard, including Flunky.

Despite the Skylanders' best efforts, they were unable to defeat Hurrikazam, who retreated to his Cloud Citadel. Afterwards Morbo revealed that the undead villagers who were taken by Hurrikazam were turned back into living breathing creatures by a weather machine. The Skylanders soon infiltrated Hurrikazam's citadel by allowing themselves to be taken captive by Gargantulas that are associated with Morbo. Upon seeing the Undead Energy Extractor, the machine that turns the undead back into the living, the Skylanders were discovered and fight against Brock and his group of Drow. It was soon revealed that Hurrikazam wasn't evil; he was being forced to commit the evil deeds by Kaos, who threatened to cut Hurrikazam's Amazing, Fantastic, Incredible, Suprising, Unfathomable, All-Coloured Rose if he didn't do as the evil Portal Master commanded. The evil Portal Master revealed that he was draining the undead villagers of their undeadliness to store it up in a tank of Undead energy to shower every island of Skylands with undead rain to turn the living into undead and destroy the other elements.

Cynder Hex

Hex imprisoning Cynder as the dragoness tried to reason with her companion.

When the Skylanders tried to intervene, the Weather Wizard relunctantly subdued the Skylanders with the weather machine, but refused to drain them of their element at the cost of his precious flower. When Kaos tried to do the task of draining the Skylanders' power himself, he accidentally released the Skylanders, who cornered the evil Portal Master. However, Hex suddenly saved Kaos by imprisoning Cynder and Zook in her bone fortresses, defecting to Kaos' side. She claimed to Cynder and Zook that they weren't her friends and she was tired of being feared, longing to be normal again. Hex allowed herself to provide Kaos her powerful Undead energy, and the Portal Master eagerly began the procedure using the Undead Energy Extractor. However the machine was overloading by the amount of Hex's power, something that the elf sorceress had planned all along and never actually defected to Kaos.

The machine soon exploded, and after a brief moment of seeing Hex's true form, Hex revealed that she had since and always have embraced her dark side. She then helped her companions defeat Kaos and his army of Drow. After returning the undead inhabitants back to normal, the Skylanders are given a heroes' welcome and Morbo offered to allow Hex to stay on the Isle of the Dead. Although flattered, the undead sorceress revealed that she belonged to the Skylanders, her friends. As a token of his gratitude, Hurrikazam gives the Skylanders an Amazing, Fantastic, Incredible, Suprising, Unfathomable, All-Coloured Rose seed, the Undead segment to the Mask of Power.

Upon returning to the Eternal Archive, Hex, Cynder and Zook were given the horrible news from Spyro that Squirmgrub kidnapped Master Eon and had taken five of the pieces to the Mask of Power with him.

Skylanders Issue #5 (What the Hex!)

Hex was putting on a charity magic show in Woodburrow, entertaining a crowd. When she asked for a volunteer for her next magic act, the elf sorceress picked the sprite, Calliope, as her assistant. Unknown to Hex, Calliope stole an essence from the sorceress, who felt woozy from the effects but managed to continue her act without trouble.

Skylanders Issue #7

WARNING: This section contains spoilers below! (Skip section)

An unknown time after the encounter with Calliope, Hex was attacked by Drow and discovered that her magic was reduced to the simplest of spells, losing even her levitation powers. Returning to the Skylanders Academy in bad shape, she found out that Spyro was in a similar situation. After talking to Persephone and finding out that their magic was stolen, they reached the conclusion that Calliope is behind the disappearance of their powers. Despite her protests to solve the issue alone, they set out to the Cadaverous Crypt with the help of Wallop, Flynn and Mags, and the sorceress expressed being reminded of old fears when questioned by Spyro about her attitude.

On the way to the Crypts, the group found Cynder being attacked by Rotting Robbies and Bone Chompies until Wallop stepped in to help followed soon after by Hex and Spyro. Cynder revealed that her powers were stolen by Calliope as well and she had been tracking the fairy down with a charm bought from Auric, which was lost after the encounter with the undead monsters. Noticing the pattern with Spyro and Hex having their magic stolen, the Skylanders ventured inside the caves of the Crypts, and soon found the fairy. Before they could reach her however, Calliope smashed the gem containing their powers on a strange rock by the commands of a hidden shadow, who proceeded to absorb them and regain his own. As soon as they found out who was behind it, Malefor announced his return and attacked them with fire, rendering the group unconcious.

Spoilers end here.




Hex is often irritated by Zook's laidback demeanor, but tolerates him. However she doesn't like it when he calls her "Hexy" or plays the didgeridoo.[2]


The dragon doesn't doubt Hex's loyalties, but doesn't agree with her way of attempting to solve things without help.
