Avalar was the home world of the Professor, Elora, and Hunter the Cheetah. Avalar was a peaceful world until the day the Professor built a portal to test, and out came Ripto, Gulp, and Crush. In no time Ripto took over and used his magic to make life miserable for the inhabitants of Avalar. The Professor, Alora, and Hunter decide a dragon is what they need to defeat Ripto. So they snatched Spyro the Dragon and Sparx the Dragonfly, just as they were on their way to Dragon Shores. The three kingdoms of Avalar are Summer Forest, Autumn Plains, and Winter Thundra.
