"...at her lair, where she lives in solitude among the clouds and towers"-Terrador
The floating crystal islands of Concurrent Skies are a series of magically-suspended islands floating above the ocean off the coast of the main continent. It is completely surrounded by black storm clouds at all times, which are drawn in by the crystals on the islands. the Crystals store vast electrical energy within their atomic structures, and thus glow a deep sky-blue color. small canyons between crystal formations permit movement. These canyons are often filled with snow; concealing a cobblestone road leading to the island's few complexes of buildings. Hidden near the main complex of buildings surrounding Cynder's Fortress is a Precursor relic that can activate a portal into the Realm of Convexity.

"Cynder's lair is where hope goes to die, Spiril; a dark, foreboding place where she broods, and skulks....and plans her next assault"-Terrador
During the Dragon Civil War, Concurrent Skies was the site of Cynder's Lair, from which she conducted her war against the Dragon Confederation High Council; under Malefor's highly corruptive influence. She lived in the tower complexes during the entire time she was under his control, believing it to be an impenetrable fortress-only other dragons were capable of getting to her and engaging her in battle, and by the end of her corruption, the High Council elders had been defeated by her. She underestimated Spiril, who not only managed to defeat her forces there, but also confront and attack her-his victory freeing Fira from a power crystal she was using to drain his power in order to free Malefors' essence from the Realm of Convexity. In fleeing, she took the crystal with her, smashing through the glass cupola above the elevator where he had fought and defeated her. Soon Afterwords, Fira reveals more about Cynder's Background, revealing how she was corrupted by Malefor and why.

She also learns that Spiril had followed her to the tower, though instead of being agitated about it, she confides in him that she was taken from the tower.
