- “Heh, you're a bonehead. But you're my bonehead.”
- —Skull, Split Decision
Unlike her main canon counterpart, Hex is cheerful, though quiet, and frequently smiling. Like the other cadets, she is easily impressed by the other students and teachers' feats. Despite her eagerness to excel in her studies to make up for her failure at the graduation tests, she constantly fights off her supernatural urges to turn her colleagues into undead servants. According to Skull, she is also forgetful, and needs his help to remember spells in the middle of battle.
Her evil supernatural side seems to take over Hex's body entirely, and the real sorceress has no recollection of what she does when acting as a vessel for the dark forces. Unlike most villains, it has an affectionate personality as it tries to spread itself to others, eagerly offering victims to join the other zombified drones through hugs.
Hex is a sorceress that can use a variety of spells, though most of the time she uses telekinesis on Skull to have him tackle an opponent. However, her familiar's bindings also hold back the dark side of her supernatural abilities, and removing the bindings causes it to take over her body and attempt to spread itself to any nearby people, turning them into her zombified servants to spread the evil even further. One of her regular spells, however, can reverse the effects if she recovers in time.
An unknown amount of time before her graduation test, Hex made a familiar pact with Skull over thousands of other skeletons, and the pact had the side effect of binding her supernatural energies to a spell.
Hex was in the same year as Spyro, Stealth Elf and Eruptor, but failed the Skylander Games due to her and Skull's poor performance in battle, and had to study for another year. She appears to be under the tutelage of Ka-Boom and Snap Shot throughout the season.
In the cold open of Anger Mismanagement, Hex and Skull were in a counseling session with Hugo, who was threatened by sheep halfway through and fled. Later on, she was among the cadets incapacitated by the spicy chili.
In Beard Science, Master Eon attempted to instruct her, Wind-Up and Roller Brawl on the discovery of their heroic prowess, only for the trio to mistakenly assume random characteristics as their prowess. After Eon temporarily lost his beard, they are the only ones who notice him, but were quickly distracted due to his lack of influence.
In Assault on Skylander Academy, Hex was among the cadets and Skylanders defending the school, and appeared to have more control over her magic to attack with Skull. However, Kaos' empowerment proved to be too much for the team, and she and the others were incapacitated and hypnotized by Wolfgang.
In Spyromania, Hex was in class with Jet-Vac and other cadets when they were interrupted by Spyro, who started an impromptu target practice session as he convinced them to attack him. Though the angered students were eager to punish him, he was stopped and sent to Eon's office for his disrespect.
Though Skull does most of the talking for her, they aren't always on good terms, due to his refusal to work like a regular familiar. He is also seen berating the sorcerer when they fail the Skylander Games. Their dynamic is that of yin and yang. This comes to a head in Split Decision, as she started to train alone in an attempt to strengthen their relationship, but also caused Skull to believe he was being forgotten and taken for granted, and he used a spell to remove his familiar bond, unknowingly removing her dark side's restraints and turning her into a zombified vessel.
When he realized his recklessness and lifted her spell, the two worked together to also reverse the zombification on the others in the Academy, and made amends when she explained the purpose of her solo training. With Skull's apology, his bindings returned, along with their friendship.
As of Season 2, she seems to have drifted away from Wind-Up, staying with fellow Undead cadets Roller Brawl and Cynder, even creating their own club.
- The Skylanders Academy version of Hex appears to be much younger than her main canon counterpart, given her more jovial tone and less control over her abilities.
- Jet-Vac, Pop Fizz, Food Fight, Kaos and Hex are the only characters to retain their voice actors from the games as of Season 2.
- Hex's model has a small design change in her gauntlets - the leather is divided at the wrists rather than spiraling towards the hand, and have spots at her knuckles rather than the front and back of the palms.
- When overtaken by the evil supernatural forces, Hex moves erratically, constantly levitates, and gestures as if she is a puppet, in a reference to various horror films. Her eyes and teeth also turn black, though only the eyes of her servants appear to change.
- As seen in Hex's essay about other Skylanders, she admires Hoot Loop, who has yet to make an appearance in the show.
