skekHak the Machinist

Share

A what if idea had the Skeksis skekHak (one of the two Skeksis to died right after the Great Division) did not died and continued on to live. Reportedly, he would had the been the Machinist, while urHom (its counterpart) would had been a Carpenter.


Fun fact: it has come to my attention that in the fourth Dark Crystal novel by J.M. Lee ("Flames of the Dark Crystal) deviates somewhat from the canon of Creation Myths, with skekHak having survive and becoming the Skeksis Machinist, with his counterpart, urHom becoming the Carpenter. skekHak was made in charged of the castle restorarion to the stone structure it became under the Skeksis rule.


In Age of Resistance, skekZok when told by the Emperor he had to prepare skekMal's body, he replies that there was no such Rhyte for a Skeksis: "No Skeksis has died in 1000 Thrine - not since the begining".


In TDC Creation Myths volume 2, right after the Division of the UrSkeks, the Skeksis skekHak goes wild and murders urYa by strangulation (killing skekYi) then grabbing urHom and throwing him down the Fire shaft under the Crystal, burning urHom and skekHak to death. Here it is implied that skekNa and skekShod were force to do the remodeling of the castle as punishement for defying the Emperor's status.

Had he not killed his other self, it would've been interesting to see how skekHak's role would've played out.
