Cynder blinks. "Discord?"
Pinkie licked the whipped cream off her face, giggling.
"A VERY horrid brute who we had to stop," said Rarity. "He is evil, he breaks ponies emotionally for his own amusement, and that was the LEAST horrible thing he did to Equestria."
"Wait, chocolate rain?" asked Spyro, giving Applejack a look asking for an explanation.
"Yes, it's weird," said Twilight. "Discord actively TRIED not to make sense. The first thing he said when he appeared to us was 'what fun is there in making sense'. Then he emotionally broke us all, brainwashed everyone except me, just so I could break from what he did to them, and turned Equestria into a chaotic world gone mad were literally the entire country was driven insane. And he did that for FUN!"
"Reminds me of Malefor," said Spyro. "Our enemy, he loved watching everyone suffer just as much it seems. Dragons only lay eggs every 12 years, on what's called the Year of the Dragon, we're the last two left from our year thanks to Malefor."
Twilight gasped. "He...he killed all the others?" she asked, getting a nod, and looking deeply disturbed. "Sweet Celestia, that's horrible."
"What he did to Cynder was worse," said Spyro. "He stole her egg and turned her into a brainwashed monster. She spent years being forced to attack our own people until I finally freed her..."
Nova cuddled close to her mother at the mention, knowing it was something Cynder still felt guilt for.
Twilight gasped. "That's horrible...Discord corrupted all of us, but...nothing like that."
Spyro nodded. "It sounds like neither of our enemies were good people at all."
"What was Discord?" asked Spyro.
"A creature called a Draconequus, he had the head of a pony and a body composed of all sorts of animals," explained Twilight.
"...I don't know," said Spyro. "Malefor was a dragon, a Purple Dragon like me."
