Blackin hails from the Realm of Dreams, where the collective imagination of all the creatures in the universe come together to create beautiful wonders... and terrible nightmares. At a young age, he was recruited into the Dark Stygian – a Dragon Clan whose chief responsibility was to create nightmares for evil creatures as a way to discourage them from doing more villainy. But the clan began to abuse their power, and soon spread nightmares far and wide for its own amusement. But Blackin would not stand for it. So he learned to teleport directly into the nightmares the clan created and fought the creatures within. Eventually, the nightmares reached as far as Master Smalleon, who witnessed Blackin’s courage within his own dreams. After helping him put a stop to the Dark Stygian, Smalleon then made Blackin a Skylander, serving as the protector of the Realm of Dreams and beyond!
