SkekVar is the Skeksis' General, who debuted in the novel Legends of the Dark Crystal, and appeared in puppet form in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. In Legends of the Dark Crystal, SkekVar is shown to have a rivalry with SkekLach, the Skeksis' Collector, who, like SkekVar, secretly desires Emperor SkekSo's throne. The rivalry between them leads to SkekLach undermining SkekVar's position by claiming there was a shortage of Gelfling essence, as opposed to SkekVar's claims of there being plenty of essence. In response, SkekSo orders SkekVar to pledge loyalty to SkekLach, which leaves SkekSil, the Skeksis' Chamberlain, as sole contender for the Emperor's favor. By the time of The Dark Crystal, SkekUng the Garthim Master has assumed the General position, presumably after the death of SkekVar before or during the Garthim Wars. In The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, the Skeksis General (most likely SkekVar) is puppeteered by Kevin Clash and Katherine Smee, and voiced by Benedict Wong.
