Khnum, the Skulls leader of the Western branch.

The Skulls are a violent mercenary organisation that began in The Skull region of the Wushanko Isles, which is also their namesake.[1] They have branches in both in the Western lands of Misthalin and in the Eastern lands of the Wushanko Isles. In Misthalin, they are led by Khnum and own the The Skullery, their bar in Draynor Village, and their headquarters, outside of the Draynor Village border. Their Draynor branch was founded after they took a contract there. The village is also useful for smuggling goods, as it is not as strictly governed as the nearby Port Sarim.[1] In The Arc region of the Wushanko Isles, they ran operations from a fort on the main island of The Islands That Once Were Turtles, which has since been abandoned. Some of their criminal activities included racketeering, such as running a protection racket in the Draynor Village market, thieving, and kidnapping.

Recent activities[edit | edit source]

During the storyline of Stolen Hearts, the Skulls were hired by Lady Keli to kidnap Prince Ali.

They have also been hired by Tombi, the Khan of Thalassia, an island of the Wushanko Isles. They did his dirty work for him, which included controlling his people and selling them as slaves. They were eventually driven out of the area by the assassin, Ling.

The Iron Link launched an Invasion of Port Sarim using the Skulls as an attacking force upon the Port Sarim jails.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Khnum's Skulls is a play on the word numbskulls.[2]
