"It has begun..."
—Hunter of Avalar

Hunter (ハンター Hantā in Japanese), also known as Hunter of Avalar, is a skilled Cheetah warrior from the Valley of Avalar in The Legend of Spyro series. He is a member of the cheetah clan who are settled in the Valley.

Appearance

Hunter retains his colors, his bow and arrow from his original Spyro counterpart, but he now has ringlets instead of spots, stripes on his forehead and more pointed ears. He has gotten taller and he also wears a hooded coat with a reddish cape pinned to it by a badge bearing a triple yin-yang symbol.

Personality

Unlike the other members of his clan, Hunter chose to help fight alongside the Dragons in the battle against Malefor and his army instead of staying neutral in the war. The cheetah warrior is also fascinated by the Dragons, who are notable for their ability to restore their strength from the Spirit Gems.

Abilities

While leading Spyro and Cynder to safety, Hunter is shown to be extremely agile, leaping across large gaps and scaling up steep cliffs. Much like his original Spyro counterpart, he is a skilled archer, and by using this skill, he aids Spyro and Cynder during their battle against the Grublins, usually firing his arrows from a safe distance. Hunter also has pet falcons, which he uses to send messages to inhabitants who live in great distances.

Story

The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night

MonTheEnd

Hunter watches over the crystal that contained the frozen forms of Spyro, Cynder and Sparx in the ruins of the Well of Souls.

Hunter was first mentioned when Spyro was onboard Skabb's flying arena ship, the Fellmuth Arena. Like Spyro, the cheetah warrior had been captured and forced to fight in the Arena. During his imprisonment, Hunter sent a letter to the young dragon, delivered by Mole-Yair, warning him of the dark times ahead and reassuring Spyro that he has allies. It was most likely that Hunter escaped when the Arena was under attack by Gaul's aerial forces.

Hunter wasn't mentioned again and didn't make an appearance until the last scene of the game after the credits. The Chronicler was speaking to Spyro, who was trapped in the time crystal with Cynder and Sparx within the remains of the Mountain of Malefor. As the camera pans out, Hunter was revealed to be watching over the crystal.

The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon

After the Night of Eternal Darkness, Hunter was sent by Ignitus to find Spyro and Cynder when they didn't return to the Dragon Temple. Three years later, the cheetah warrior secretly followed a group of Grublins through the ruins of the Mountain of Malefor where they lead him to where Spyro and Cynder were encased in crystal. After the Grublins freed Spyro and Cynder, and dragged them away to the Catacombs, Hunter emerged from the shadows and checked on Sparx, who was left behind and was beginning to wake up.

Spyro Hunter

Hunters stands by Spyro after they escaped from the earth Golem.

He successfully found Spyro and Cynder in the catacombs, and after saving them from the Golem, informed the two dragons that he was sent by Ignitus to find them three years ago. Realizing the danger in staying in the catacombs, Hunter escorted them to Twilight Falls to make their way to the dragon city Warfang. On their first night in the Enchanted Forest, Hunter sent out a falcon to tell Ignitus and the other Guardians the news that he has found Spyro and Cynder. Afterwards, Hunter explained to Spyro and Cynder about the dark times that was currently happening since Malefor returned shortly after they disappeared at the Well of Souls. However, before Hunter could explain more, they were all rendered unconscious by hidden attackers, and awakened to find themselves held captive in the Cheetah Village by the village's leader, Chief Prowlus.

Hunter was scolded for bringing Dragons and dangers into the Valley of Avalar, but Hunter defended his actions and reminded Prowlus that Spyro was their only hope in defeating Malefor and that the dangers were already around them. When the village came under attack by Grublins, Prowlus reluctantly released Spyro and Cynder to help fight them off but refused to allow Hunter to go. He wasn't released until Spyro and Cynder recovered a missing member of the village, Meadow, and Prowlus apologized to Hunter for his actions. Prowlus offered Hunter the use of the forbidden passageway to reach Warfang, and in return, Hunter offered an invitation to Prowlus that he was welcome to join them at any time.

Upon arrival at Warfang, Hunter and the dragons found that the City was under siege by Malefor's army and when they set out to find Ignitus, Hunter was separated from Spyro and Cynder. He waited in the courtyard by the city gates whilst the rest of the cheetah villagers arrived to attack the army from outside the city. Hunter was then attacked by a Troll that managed to break through the city gate. When Spyro and Cynder finally met back up with Hunter, they killed the Troll and they watched as Malefor's army retreated.

Hunter Guardians

Hunter, along with the Guardians, look upon the newly restored world with wonder.

However, their victory was short lived when the Golem from the Catacombs returned and began attacking the city. Hunter instructed Spyro and Cynder to take cover and headed out to help destroy the Golem. It's unknown what exactly he does to accomplish that, but when Spyro and Cynder finally destroyed the Golem, Hunter was present to hear Malefor's plan and witnessed the resurrection of the Destroyer. Hunter and the rest of the cheetah warriors accompanied the Dragons through the underground passages to stop the Destroyer, and when that failed, he helped by sending his falcons to the outer regions to send the message of telling the inhabitants there to move underground where they would be safe.

After the world was reconstructed by Spyro's power, Hunter was last seen emerging from the underground city with the other inhabitants and was amazed by the sights around him. Along with the Guardians, the cheetah warrior looked to the skies to watch a group of stars form a constellation of a Dragon.

Relationships

Spyro

Hunter possesses a lot of faith in Spyro, who he strongly believes is the last hope in stopping Malefor for good. 

Cynder

Although he is aware of Cynder's dark past, Hunter fully trusts her since Ignitus has faith in her as well.

Ignitus

It was Ignitus who sent Hunter to find Spyro, Cynder and Sparx when they disappeared three years after the Night of Eternal Darkness occured. The cheetah warrior considers the Guardian dragon a valuable ally, and will trust anyone if Igntius himself trusts them. He seems to be Ignitus's lieutenant of sorts, often carrying out the old dragon's commands and acting as a scout and tracker. He respects Ignitus's wisdom, status as a dragon, and his unwavering resolve.

Prowlus

Hunter's alliance with the Dragons puts him in conflict with his clan chief, Prowlus, who strongly distrusts the Dragon race because of Malefor and Cynder when she was under the latter's control. Both Hunter and Prowlus share some sort of rivalry, with Hunter being aware that the danger was already around them while Prowlus accused Hunter of abandoning the Cheetah Village and bringing the danger back with him. When Spyro and Cynder recovered Meadow after he went missing, Prowlus realized his error and apologized to Hunter for his actions. It is unknown if both Hunter and Prowlus resolved their differences after the events of Dawn of the Dragon.
