The Avatar found him in the second level in Ultima IX, put on a pole. He'd been removed from his grave and now wanted the Avatar to bring him back to it. In return, he'd give the Avatar a reward. Skully was an annoying and arrogant snob, but after finally finding his grave on the third level, he rewarded the Avatar with the key to the final level.
- Skully could have been inspired by Murray, the demonic skull, who'd first appeared in The Curse of Monkey Island in late 1997.
