SkekVar was the Skeksis' General during the Garthim War, and counterpart to urVa the Archer. He was an ally of skekEer the Spy Master and skekCru the Mariner.

He had a rivalry with skekLach the Collector, as both Skeksis secretly had their eyes on the throne.[1] However, skekLach began to undermine the General's position by insinuating to Emperor skekSo that there was a shortage of Gelfling essence, contrary to skekVar's claims that supplies were still plentiful. SkekVar's plans were temporarily thwarted when the Emperor ordered him to give skekLach his enthusiastic support.[2]
