The Dark Crystal


skekAyuk the Gourmand

Nor did the feasts prepared by skekAyuk the Gourmand and his teams of harassed slaves to satisfy any appetite for long. Hot spices, sweet liqueurs, cream-rich sauces, were his delight; and he boasted he had a different menu for every feast. But between meals the Skeksis went to skekNa the Slave-Master for scraps to appease the raging hunger they always felt. skekNa was purely and openly evil from the beginning; but without him the work of the castle would have never been done.
