In Spyro: Year of the Dragon, Sgt. Byrd is "the world's only flying penguin", reason being he was raised by hummingbirds who taught him how to get airborne. After joining the Air Corps, he proceeded to help out in the war against the Sorceress. Previously, he was captured by her when he was spotted letting off rockets outside her fireworks factory but, is soon freed by Spyro after the latter pays a fair share of gems to the malicious Moneybags. Byrd owns two Bird To Air Missile launchers in Spyro: Year of the Dragon, he mentioned they were DVX-9 types) which he developed himself and with these mounted on his shoulders he causes havoc amongst his enemies. Clearly being a fine soldier with his English accent and military jargon, Sgt. Byrd will uncomplainingly head out on any mission to help Spyro.

Byrd is The Don of the Dragon World skies."
