skekTek the Scientist

SkekTek wears a light, cream-colored robe with a protruding back skeleton hump. His urRu counterpart is urTih the Alchemist.


SkekTek the Scientist kept some real power of thought, but in truth he had become only a juggler of ideas, of memories from his previous life. At the Emperor’s demand, he studied the wounded Crystal, and by that light he saw his ways to acts of darkness. First, he learned the art to make beams of light from the Dark Crystal, which he burned into the eyes of the Pod People and Gelfling to make them his slaves. After the light had struck them no light lived in their eyes, but they obeyed; that was all. The life force that was extracted was called essence, and the Skeksis imbibed this precious substance with horrible gluttony.
