- "Greetings, young Portal Master, I have been waiting for you. I am Eon, your guide in this world."
- —Master Eon
Master Eon, or as his friends call him, Eon, is a veteran Portal Master who is one of the main supporting characters in the Skylanders series. He was the leader of the Skylanders before his duties were passed on to the new Portal Master.
Eon is known as the greatest among the Portal Masters. He has great knowledge over the history and realms of Skylands, and has utmost faith in his Skylanders. He also serves as a mentor to Spyro and the new Portal Master.
As a humble servant boy, Eon started his life polishing pans in the kitchen of the Portal Master, Nattybumpo. When he was eight years old, it was realized that Eon was no ordinary boy when he accidentally activated Nattybumpo's portal and teleported him into the middle of The Dirt Seas. Over the years, Eon became the greatest among the Portal Masters. He recruited many Skylanders to be the legendary champions of their world, having seen their potential and unique abilities that were capable of fighting the evil in Skylands. He led the Skylanders to protect the Core of Light and their world from the forces of darkness. Eventually, Eon became the last of the good Portal Masters and grew weaker with age as time passed. He knew that it was only a matter of time before The Darkness would return one day.
Skylanders: The Machine of DoomAfter celebrating their latest triumph over the forces of evil with his Skylanders, Eon received news from his assistant, Hugo, and Flynn of flying sheep attacking the Mabu Market. Using his portal, Eon saw a vision of the Market being wrecked by shapes that looked like sheep, and he sent Spyro, Gill Grunt, and Eruptor to investigate the commotion. After discovering that Kaos was looking for the Chattering Key, an artifact used to unlock a tomb that contained an Arkeyan weapon, Eon allowed Spyro, Gill Grunt, Eruptor, and Boomer to go on a mission to stop Kaos from reaching the Key at the Forest of Fear. Although absent, the old Portal Master appeared as an hallucination of Spyro's worst fear, being chained and shackled by Kaos, who was mocking him. It was Eon's teachings that influenced Spyro to save Kaos from a fate the evil tyrant tried to bring upon the Skylanders in the collapsing Pyramid of Just Rewards.
After the Skylanders escaped from the pyramid, Eon transported to the Skylanders' location when the fog surrounding the Forest of Fear cleared up enough for him to open a portal. The old Portal Master and his Skylanders knew that Kaos' attack was just the beginning, but they celebrated their victory together as Gill Grunt began to sing.
Skylanders: Spyro versus The Mega Monsters
Master Eon was training few of his Skylanders, Spyro, Jet-Vac, Trigger Happy, and Drill Sergeant, in a session against a Goliath Drow illusion. The training ended when Spyro accidentally burned Trigger Happy and Drill Sergeant, and burning Master Eon's beard. The old Portal Master then heard the news from Stealth Elf of a terrifying monster within the Stinky Swamp and sent her and Spyro there to investigate. Upon hearing that Kaos has turned over a new leaf by beating evildoers, Master Eon was astonished to find out that the evil Portal Master had already taken care of problems around Skylands involving mega-sized animals before his Skylanders could have the chance to save the day.
Master Eon and his Skylanders were soon confronted by the Warrior Librarians of the Eternal Archives, lead by his old friend Wiggleworth, who had come to warn Master Eon that their Eternal Archives, a library that holds the dangerous books ever written, was in terrible danger. The old Portal Master then sent his Skylanders to help the Warrior Librarians in defending the Archives, to which they succeeded.
Master Eon congratulated Spyro on his victory in stopping Kaos, and was more surprised that the purple dragon shared the glory with his fellow Skylanders who assisted him. He then guided Spyro to the lower floors of the Archive after the young dragon heard that Wiggleworth wanted to show him something within the Archive's vault. The old Portal Master showed Spyro a book Kaos was after, the legendary Book of Power, a book of prophecy that shows the most dreadful predictions, such as the fall of the Skylanders, and Spyro himself...
Skylanders: Gill Grunt and the Curse of the Fish MasterMaster Eon was in the vault of the Eternal Archives with Wiggleworth examining the Book of Power. When Spyro and Gill Grunt were called to get a look at the book, it showed a vision of the Core of Light being destroyed and darkness shrouding the skies, shocking them. Upon discovering that Kaos was after the Mask of Power to use it to destroy the Core of Light, Eon forced the Book of Power to reveal the secrets on where to find the fragments to the Mask, causing the book to conjure a freak storm within the vault. The old Portal Master managed to "persuade" the Book of Power to show where the next fragment to the Mask of Power lied, and instructed Gill Grunt to find the fragment, while Eon stayed behind with Spyro in the Eternal Archives to study the rest of the Book.
After the mission, the Skylanders seemed to have failed in their mission to retrieve the Water Fragment as Kaos supposedly got to it first. Gill Grunt then checked a satchel he brought back with him after his battle with Captain Grimslobber and held a dirty rag the captain had used to wrap the Fish Master's Crown. The rag soon revealed itself to be the Water Fragment, making the Skylanders realize that Kaos had stolen nothing more than a worthless broken crown. Master Eon then levitated the Water Fragment to his grasp, insisting that the fragment would be kept at the vault for safe keeping, but knew that this was far from over as Kaos would be after the next fragment to the Mask of Power...
Skylanders: Lightning Rod Faces the Cyclops Queen
Master Eon was attending the Annual Storm Giant Games when an accident caused Flynn's air balloon to spiral out of control. Thanks to the Skylanders present, they were able to save Flynn along with his passengers, Hugo and another Warrior Librarian, Squirmgrub. Hugo then told Master Eon that the Mask of Power had revealed the location of the next fragment to the Mask of Power, and that Squirmgrub had also discovered something about the malevolent item.
Eon and the Skylanders then discovered that the Air segment to the Mask of Power has seemingly taken on the form of a Land Whale, which was stationed at a zoo held by the Cyclops Queen at Tempest Towers. The old Portal Master Lightning Rod, Pop Fizz, Drobot, Double Trouble, Cali, and Flynn to the Tempest Towers that lied beyond the Sea of Storms in their mission to claim the Air fragment before Kaos made his move.
Skylanders: Terrafin Battles the Boom Brothers
Master Eon looked into the matter of Rocky being kidnapped by Kaos when Terrafin, Sonic Boom and Hot Dog were at the Fantastic Fairy Fair. The old Portal Master discovered a book that contained information on the exact whereabouts of the Boom Brothers, something Squirmgrub had deliberately hidden. Although both Master Eon and Terrafin knew that the Librarian's action was intentional, Eon believed it was an "honest mistake". After the Skylanders rescued Rocky, Eon extracted the true piece of the Earth segment to the Mask of Power from the stone golem, which was Rocky's unusual singing voice.
Skylanders: Cynder Confronts the Weather Wizard
|WARNING: This section contains spoilers below! (Skip section)|
Master Eon instructed Skylanders, Cynder, Hex, and Zook to head to the Isle of the Dead to answer the plea for help and find out about the cause of the mysterious weather conditions around Skylands. However, during the Skylanders' mission, the great Portal Master was kidnapped by the traitorous Squirmgrub, who also stole five pieces to the Mask of Power for Kaos.

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure
While watching over the Core of Light one day with Spyro and Trigger Happy, Master Eon was confronted by The Darkness and Kaos; the latter having returned from his exile in the Outlands to once again attempt to destroy the Core of Light and rule Skylands. Master Eon led his Skylanders against Kaos's forces in defending the great machine, but the evil tyrant succeeded in destroying the Core of Light using his Hydra, blowing up Eon and banishing the Skylanders to Earth in the process. During the explosion, the old Portal Master was pulled into his own portal, no longer appearing in his true form, forever locked in the space between realms as a spiritual-like floating head.
As Eon survived the destruction of the Core, he couldn't fight Kaos and The Darkness without his true form. He helped the new Portal Master by guiding them in some points of their trials to save Skylands.
After Kaos was defeated, Master Eon gave the honor of sending Kaos to Earth to his assistant, Hugo. He then congrulated the new Portal Master for saving Skylands, but informs them that the journey with their Skylanders was only just the beginning.

Spyro the Dragon
Master Eon guides Spyro during his days as one of the Skylanders, and as a result, the young dragon sees Eon as a mentor. However, ever since Spyro met the veteran Portal Master, he has been afraid that Eon would fall to Kaos. Master Eon trusts Spyro enough to allow the young dragon to assume the role of second in command in times of crisis, acting as a secondary leader to the Skylanders when Master Eon is absent.
Eon appreciates his Mabu assistant, Hugo, in serving the old Portal Master around the citadel for many years, although he is slightly annoyed by Hugo's aversion for sheep.
Although Kaos is a joke at a basic level in his attempts to take over Skylands (not to mention, annoying and has appalling dress sense), Master Eon knows that it is unwise to underestimate the evil Portal Master, as Kaos has shown that he can be a dangerous enemy.
- Eon is mentioned in the backstories of numerous Skylanders, having recruited them into the heroes they are today.
- While in wisp form, Eon bears a resemblance to Hektore, as both are floating heads, and Eon's helm has two spikes somewhat like those on Hektore's head.
- Master Eon's voice is most always in surround sound. The developers figured any guy whose official title includes the word "master" should also have a pretty sweet voice treatment.
