Cyril is a coldly confident and predominately prideful dragon, who constantly brags about supposedly royal ancestry. He is brimming with pride and arrogance, claiming that his lineage is that of some long forgotten yet great dragons. He does not hold his tongue when speaking and he can often be sarcastic, Volteer usually being the target of these remarks due to the electric Guardian's incessant babbling. Despite his short comings, however, he knows when he should swallow his pride and do the right thing, admitting that Spyro is the way forwards and that he and his fellow Guardians must step aside.
As a Master of Ice, Cyril's proficiency is unmatched by no one but Spyro in raw power, but it takes Cyril's tutoring to truly allow Spyro to be able to control his element efficiently and with any grace.
Cyril and Volteer squabble a lot, with Cyril disliking the electric dragon's speedy tongue and Volteer annoyed by Cyril's pomposity and pretentiousness.
- Originally, instead of Cyril, there would have been a female water Guardian - according to lead concept artist Jared Pullen.
- He was originally going to have more than one dialogue in Dawn of the Dragon in a comical scene with Volteer during the attack of the Golem in Dragon City, but the producers didn't have enough time to add the extra scene in, so it was left out of the final release.
