When Lana’s( Clark Kent’s first love interest) horse was injured, Cyrus showed up and saved the horse using his healing powers in form of yellow energy. Cyrus revealed that he had dreams of a ship like that of Clark. Clark was then convinced that Cyrus was from Krypton. However, Chloe, Lois Lane’s cousin, was able to find that Cyrus faked the fire.
Cyrus asked for Clark’s help to steal his transmitter back from the principal’s office. However, the bullies threatened them and Clark had to reveal his own powers to Cyrus. Cyrus was taken for psychiatric testing again, but Clark broke him out. Chloe then found out that Cyrus was the unidentified orphan of the parents that were killed in the meteor shower.
Cyrus was again attacked by bullies at his transmission tower. They almost wrecked his transmitter. In the process, one of them was injured. Clark convinced Cyrus to save the bully. So, instead of running away, Cyrus healed the former tormentor but he suffered a complete mental breakdown during the process. He was then placed in a special hospital in Metropolis. However, he was not expected to recover.
After that, Cyrus had not returned in the series Smallville and he was possibly dead. The character only appears in the series but not in comics.
