Skult is an elderly magician and servant of the god Loki. In Fall of the Trident, he assists Gargarensis upon his arrival in the Norselands. When the heroes first encounter him, he claims to be able to help them unite the Norse tribes against Gargarensis, and gives them a flag which he claims the Norse tribes will rally under. When the heroes reveal the flag to the feuding tribes, however, the tribes become enraged and attack them. Upon Arkantos questioning Skult, he laughs at him and escapes by transforming into ravens. Arkantos is afterwards informed by Reginleif that the flag is that of Folstag's band of frost giants, who are notorious pillagers, and that this was a favorite trick of Loki's.
