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.


Spyro: Year of the Dragon website[edit]

"Meet the world's only flying penguin. Raised by hummingbirds who taught him how to get airborne, Byrd has become the baddest boy around, having honed his skills with the military. While training, he developed the first B.A.M. (Bird to Air Missile) and he now has B.A.M. launchers mounted on his shoulders. Adept at picking up items and dropping them with superb accuracy, Sgt. Byrd is The Don of the Dragon World skies."
