Skel was a weasel sentry in Ungatt Trunn's Blue Hordes. While patrolling the mountain, a fellow sentry, Reggo, called out for him as he had run into the otters of Brogalaw's holt along with Stiffener Medick, who were attempting to free the hares imprisoned in Salamandastron. Skel was knocked unconscious by Stiffener, after he came to investigate. Reggo and Skel were then both tied up by Brog. When they managed to untie the knots and return to the mountain they were regarded as deserters and were killed by the guards stationed there.
