Skolex are aquatic and nocturnal creatures native to Hallow. They preyed on Icyene, latching themselves to the Icyene's soul and changing it. Survivors of a skolex attack had a higher chance of recovery the less amount of time they were exposed to the skolex. Victims underwent an "unwinding" procedure conducted with a Rod of Asclepius to heal from a skolex attack, although most of them still died or entered a catatonic state.
