"Every action you have made in this system. Every enemy slain, every ally made, every desperate ploy and plea you have made, every sin against the great work of the Final Shape. I have watched, and I have watched with careful detail. Remember that when judgement is rendered final, little mote. Remember that when I determine your finality in reality's great design. For I am its Watcher. I am its Judge. I. Am. Skira."
— Skira conversing with the Guardian

Skira, Judge of the Abyss is a Disciple of the Witness. Once a member of the Divine Chorus of The Polyphony, after being falsely blamed for a "great discordance", she would destroy her own people with the quaint assistance of Nezarec, who took a great interest in the psionically powerful Kshiri. Little is known about her doings apart from the Witness's fondness for the Kshiri singer, deeming her the judge of the abyss; she is responsible for the destruction of countless worlds she deemed "unworthy" of the Final Shape and would even create the Chimera from Darkness energies in the hopes of creating a perfect being.

When she encountered the Eliksni, however, she would be assigned to their conversion to the Darkness at the behest of the Witness and sought to personally recruit Israhn if all else failed. However, when she sought to retaliate against the race who neglected her gifts, she would be driven off by the Traveler who scarred her with it's powerful Light, forcing her to retreat in shame as she sought to recover her power and remedy her wounds. Though she would fail in this task, she would be instrumental in the scouring of the Fallen


Polyphony's Bane[edit]

Divine Chorus[edit]

"I was made indispensable to them. I sang with pride and conviction in our Polyphony and I felt as my voice and mind breathed life for our world. I felt my power mend our broken world, purging away the radiation of our chromatic warheads and influence of death thoughts. To them I was... the perfect tool. And I was a fool to think so."
— Skira recounting her past

Betrayal and Tutelage[edit]

""I can feel your rage overflowing. It fuels you as much as it does me. (...) I like you. Perhaps we can work on an arrangement."
"Like what?"
"How about revenge?"
"Yeah, perhaps... (...) perhaps that is exactly what I need."
Nezarec and Skira conversing months following her exile


"--It does not anger you that your world now belongs to us? It does not anger you that the voices of your great choir are silenced for good?--
"Why should I be angry? (...) They got exactly what they deserved; justice for their pride."
— The Witness discussing Kshiral's suspension in Macrocosm

The Chimera[edit]

""They are mindless beasts of delirium and indiscriminate hunger. Vessels empty, hollow and void. More concerned with filling it. They are perfect conduits for my will. They shall hew away the falsehoods of reality and refine them to the perfect shape we so crave. As I will it, so it shall be.""
— Skira on the Chimera

The Eliksni[edit]

Wrath of the Watcher[edit]

"They feared me. They feared my name, loathed it and gnashed teeth at it's mere inference. It was all too perfect, my Witness. I have turned their fear into mistrust, into paranoia and, in time, they would have revered me as those one-eyed children did Nezarec. (...) They now ignore my doings, and now all I have for them is PURE. HATRED."
— Skira reflecting on her attempt to subjugate the Eliksni
