The Portal Masters are highly revered, powerful beings in the Skylanders series. It is also the title of the young players from Earth who take on the the role of the Portal Master to control hundreds of different Skylanders.

Story

History

The Portal Masters are the wisest and most powerful beings who have been protecting Skylands from The Darkness for centuries. There was a time, however, where it was summoned from the depths of a Spell Punk fortress, and the Portal Masters and their Skylanders almost lost the battle until the Core of Light, created by the Ancients, was rediscovered. Despite its defeat, the Darkness bestowed its power upon certain villains, who became Dark Portal Masters.

However, the Nightmare King, Nefarion, came to power at some point. With the Mask of Power in his possession, Nefarion terrorized Skylands for hundreds of years and hunted down the Portal Masters one by one. The Portal Masters were on the brink of extinction, until Nefarion was eventually defeated by one of the last remaining Portal Masters, Wizbit, who froze the Nightmare King in his own castle in eternal winter.

Years later, Master Eon, the last of the good Portal Masters, and his Skylanders protected the Core of Light that kept The Darkness at bay, but Eon grew weaker with age.

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

A dark Portal Master named Kaos wanted to use his evil powers and The Darkness to take over Skylands. After destroying the Core of Light, Kaos banished all the Skylanders from Skylands into our world, turning them into toys, and it's up to the new Portal Master (the player) and the Skylanders to stop Kaos and save Skylands from disaster. Master Eon survived the destruction of the Core of Light, but had lost his body in the process and became a spirit. The new Portal Master was the chosen to save Skylands from Kaos by rebuilding the Core of Light using the eight Eternal Sources.

Role

It is the duty of the Portal Master to decide the fate of Skylands. Neither royal blood nor a sea of gold can make anyone a Portal Master. Either they are lucky enough to be born with the power to wield a Portal or they are not. The number of Portal Masters rises and falls over the years, leading some to believe that the Portal Masters will simply appear when they're needed the most. The bonds between the Skylanders and their Portal Masters are unbreakable.

However, while there are good Portal Masters, there are also evil ones. With the help of The Darkness, Dark Portal Masters use their evil magic to spread darkness and havoc across Skylands, even summoning the most sinister of creatures to carry out their plans.

Abilities

Portal Masters have great control over Portals of Power, allowing them to teleport other beings and objects, as well as using them to view events or far-away areas. They can also teleport themselves at the risk of being electrocuted. Portal Masters are born with powerful magic, as Kaos was able to bring the Wilikins to life with his magic at a very young age; a sign that he was indeed a Portal Master. Portal Masters can even use a time travel spell, which they can also use to change the age of people or objects, as Master Eon used this spell to age a block of ice until it melted.

Trivia

  • Though Skylanders are generally shown to treat their Portal Masters with utmost respect, in Skylanders: Battlecast, they'll scold and even threaten their Battlecasters with violence should they harass the Skylander by poking.
  • In the book about the Hydra in the Spell Punk Library, it was stated that Dark Portal Masters keep a menagerie of various evil beasts and creatures, their favorite being the titular monster.
  • Portal Masters may have slowed aging, as Portal Masters such as Kaos' Mom or Master Eon were also alive before the SWAP Force were banished, which was one hundred years ago.
