Not only the biggest and strongest member of the group, Thud is very likely the sweetest. With a soft heart (and even softer head, characteristic of all Ankylosaurs), Thud wouldnʼt dream of harming a fly. Unless, of course, the fly chose to endanger his friends. More dog than dinosaur, Thud is fiercely loyal – and always first in line to help his friends. As a general rule, though, Thud sticks close to Cinder – the nearest thing to a sister (or any family whatsoever) that he has. As a result, nobody – meaning nobody – gets to her without going through him. Not to mention his spine-encrusted club tail, with which he has discouraged more than a few of her unwanted suitors.
