- "Foxes was allus traitors. I never liked that one."
- ―Tramun Clogg
A wily, conniving, haughty fox, Skalrag was an aide and captain to Badrang the Tyrant in Fort Marshank. Among his duties was to report the goings-on of the fortress regularly to Badrang. To do this, he had a spy among the slaves, Druwp the vole. Druwp reported regularly to Skalrag, and was rewarded with food and drink. Skalrag was often taken by surprise at how much Druwp knew.
Skalrag was also one of the cruel slavedrivers. Once, he was paid back for his cruelty, when the squirrel slave Felldoh ripped off half of his ear with a thrown stone. Felldoh was taken to the prison pit of Marshank for his insolence.
During one of Tramun Clogg's attacks on Marshank, Skalrag was ordered to take a small complement of archers out to the bay and to burn Clogg's galley, the Seascarab. He was successful, but also unfortunate enough to meet Clogg's corsairs, who captured them.
As a prisoner, Skalrag promised Clogg that he would spy on Badrang in return for his life. Satisfied, Clogg returned Skalrag inside, but Skalrag was executed on the suspicious Badrang's orders.
- Skalrag's death in the Redwall TV Series was being tickle tortured over the Marshank gates before losing his grip and falling to his death, rather than being shot at for target practice.
