Skakmat the Dragon
Skakmat was Nulfaga's dragon familiar. It reported to her on the happenings in Daggerfall when she retired to Castle Shedungent during the War of Betony. Under Nulfaga's orders, it created a sudden unnatural fog at the Battle of Cryngaine Field which blinded the combatants, providing the cover necessary to allow Gothryd to kill Lysandus' impersonator in a successful attempt to feign the king's death. It is often misconceived that the fog was created by daedric magic, or that it was Nulfaga's attempt to halt the battle.
- Skakmat is never mentioned in any of the games. It exists as a character in the data files of TES II: Daggerfall, and its role in the War of Betony is only ever spoken of in The Daggerfall Chronicles.
