Production Information
First appearance Krelboyne Girl
Portrayed by Tania Raymonde

Cynthia Sanders, portrayed by Tania Raymonde, was a fellow Krelboyne classmate of Malcolm and the only known female Krelboyne. She was Malcolm's first crush when she was introduced, but she quickly became a friend to him. She knows the martial art krav maga and uses it on occasion to subdue Reese when he becomes too annoying to her.


In her first appearance ("Krelboyne Girl"), Cynthia mentions that her dad wanted a more quiet life, so he moved from Manhattan to Malcolm's hometown. Being the new kid, she constantly tries to fit in with her peers, even going so far as to plan a party specifically for socializing. Unfortunately, Malcolm butchers the party, fearing she would humiliate herself. In the end, however, the party is a success, and Cynthia makes new friends.

Her prolonged absence from season 3 is explained that she was on a vacation in Europe with her father in the episode Cynthia's Back. It is also revealed that she has developed very large breasts for her age, something which she constantly hid from people out of embarrassment, and was pushy and mean as a result. She wore large sweaters to hide them, but they are accidentally revealed to Malcolm. Despite promising to keep them a secret, he accidentally told Reese, who started a relationship with her only because he wanted to see them. Malcolm did everything he could to prove Reese's true intentions, but she thought he was just jealous. However, when all three of them were together, Malcolm asked Reese what her name was. Unable to remember, Reese grabbed her breasts in desperation and she beat him out of anger for manipulating her.

She made her last appearance along with Kevin and Lloyd in the episode Humilithon. When Malcolm was about to make a huge mistake by destroying Lois' car, she desperately attempted to stop him and did so by claiming they had sex ultimately destroying her reputation in the process, after this she is never seen again.
