Featured in Shadows of The Dark Crystal, his urRu counterpart is urVa the Archer.


Although he considers himself a “sportsman,” skekMal is nothing more than a brutal hunter. The wildest of the Skeksis, he frightens even his own kind. He uses all manner of traps and bears a scar across his face. Lightning fast, he can actually dodge arrow and disappears into the trees in front of him. And whatever he catches… he generally eats. Although most of the Gelfling clans do not know skekMal, they know the legend of “the Hunter” and they know that no one has ever escaped alive. SkekMal uses a ‘spirit-like’ mask to conceal his true identity.
